    Benefit Erase Paste

    Colors Didn't Match and Too Messy.

    Neither the fair nor the medium colors worked for me. They were too pink, and the deep was too dark. I also found the formulation to be very creamy but too liquid and messy for my taste. It would work well if you used a brush to apply, but I prefer using my fingers. The coverage of this product would be good if the color matched my skin. I would like the texture of this product if it had a different applicator.

    Nars Concealer

    Not Enough Coverage and Too Dry

    It was a good color match in custard and I like the easy applicator. It is not messy at all. I didn’t feel it provided quite enough coverage and felt a little too dry for my skin. The coverage was very matte, which I liked.

  • Eucerin Daily Protection SPF 15 Moisturizing Body Lotion

    Eucerin Daily Protection SPF 15 Moisturizing Body Lotion

    Unscented with SPF! Perfect All-over Body Lotion.

    I’ve only found two drug-store body lotions with SPF in them. Although I would love it even more if this lotion had an SPF 30, I still like the feeling of a light layer of sun protection for daily use. I use this as a full body moisturizer right out of the shower after a quick towel dry to try and lock in the moisture. I like this lotion because it is light enough that I don’t have to wait very long to get dressed, but its heavy enough to moisturize my dry legs and arms. It’s a perfect unscented all-over moisturizer.

    Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser

    Reasonably Priced Gentle Cleanser

    I love how gentle this cleanser is and it leaves my skin smooth without feeling dry. I use it only in the morning, as I use a heavier cleanser at night. Its a perfect light cleanser for sensitive skin.

  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm
    7.0

    Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm

    Matte/Primer Qualities and Gave me a Bronzed Look

    Pros: provided matte coverage; matte look stayed all day; the one color gave me a bronzed look that was natural; anti-aging products. Cons: only comes in one shade; only in SPF 20 (most experts recommend to always wear SPF 30 as a minimum; had a strange/noticeable smell; very light coverage, still needed spot corrector. Overall: Urban Decay’s BB went on smoothly and felt like a primer. It made my skin matte but did not provide quite as much coverage as some of the others I tried. Notably, this is the only BB that I thought had a distinct smell that I didn’t really like. The color of this BB definitely gave me a more bronzed look, so would be great for someone who is looking to add a bit more color to her complexion while still looking natural. I loved that this BB stayed matte throughout the day.

  • Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen
    10.0

    Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen

    My Favorite BB Cream I've Tried - Love the Matte Finish

    Pros: primer, matte finish I prefer; evening of skin texture; blended best with my skin tone; good base for blush and spot corrector; SPF 30; comes in four shades for skin matching. Cons: still needed spot corrector Overall: Tarte’s BB was by far my favorite of the five BB Creams I tried. It stood out immediately for its lightness and primer-like qualities. It gave me a light matte look. Mildly covered imperfections but I still needed spot coverage. It was a great base for my cheek stain. My forehead and t-zone were slightly shiny by mid-day. I felt this BB was the best match for my skin. I generally have shiny skin, so I preferred the primer qualities of this BB that gave me a matte look. It also just seemed to blend the best with my skin. It was light, but seemed to give me the most even and matte skin texture, which I liked.

  • Dr. Jart+ Premium BB Beauty Balm SPF 45
    2.0

    Dr. Jart+ Premium BB Beauty Balm SPF 45

    Only Comes In One Color So It Didn't Match At All!

    Pros: nice base for blush; anti-aging ingredients; light coverage; SPF 45 is the highest of ones I tried. Cons: only comes in one color that did not work with my skin tone; shinier than I like; still needed spot corrector. Overall: Dr. Jart’s BB went on very creamy. I didn’t think the color looked very good on my skin. I have an olive skin tone and it seemed too light and pink for my coloring. It did provide mild coverage on my imperfections, but I still needed spot coverage. The overall look was a bit shinier than I prefer. This BB also provided a nice base for my blush but my spot corrector did not blend well since the color of this BB was just a bit off from my skin tone.

  • Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30

    Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30

    Too Shiny, but Good Coverage and Staying Power

    Pros: SPF 30; fuller coverage so no need for spot corrector; full-day staying power; comes in four shades for better skin match. Cons:shinier than I prefer, heavier feel than I prefer; vague description of anti-aging benefits. Overall: Clinique’s BB offered a heavier coverage than the others. I found my skin still looked quite shiny after application, but my skin texture was smoothed out and imperfections better hidden. This BB had a noticeably heavier feel than some of the others, but it had great lasting power throughout the day. It also served as a good foundation for my blush and blended well with my spot corrector.

  • Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35
    8.0

    Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35

    Heavier Coverage and Staying Power

    Pros: SPF 35; great all-day staying power; good base for blush and spot corrector; heavier coverage, evening out of skin tone; comes in five shades to skin matching. Cons: price, more expensive than the others I tried; shinier than I’d like. Overall: Smashbox’s BB cream provided heavier coverage and felt more like a foundation. It did not make my skin very matte, but did even out my skin tone. It served as a good base for my spot corrector and blush and had outstanding staying-power all day. I was shinier by midday, especially my forehead and t-zone.
