My Thoughts:

I got this travel size in a Summer Favorites Collection from Sephora and I have to say, I wasn’t very impressed with it. It’s super dark, feels heavy on the skin, and has a pretty strong scent to it. The most productive use I got out of this product was using it as a contour on the days I only wanted to wear BB Cream. I would apply the Smashbox CC cream, then applies this to areas I wanted diminished or contoured. It makes the product last longer and was the only way I could use it where it wasn’t obviously a drastically darker color than my skin tone. This has the consistency of a medium-full coverage foundation and a medium coverage so I don’t know why it’s labeled a BB cream; it sure doesn’t feel like one. From what I’ve found, this product is no longer available in the US from Sephora but you can get it on Amazon and have someone from another country who can obtain it, ship it to wherever you are. If you do have the skin tone that matches this, remember, a little goes a long way. Again, this product is pretty thick so you only need a little bit to achieve the natural BB cream look.
