It actually does have little flecks of shimmer through it when you look closely, I noticed that the first time I used it and was a bit disappointed. However it's hardly noticeable and just adds a nice luminous quality to the skin.

I don't like "sparkly" either. This product doesn't seem to have any additional luminescence. Even so, as I prefer a more matte finish, I brush Make Up For Ever's HD powder over it (or, occ Mineral Veil) & then Mist & Fix to set it. I haven't had a problem looking too dewy or sparkly.

I don't think this has any sparkle or glitter, but it gives your skin a subtle almost dewy glow. I am 45 and love it so I don't want to look like a teenager or a clown either. It reminds me of having been in the sun and the way your skin glows from that.

Primed and Poreless or Beauty Balm?
which one is better? I've been using primed and poreless before foundation. i have acne prone skin which is a combination of oily, dry and sensitive. Their both around the same price and I've been reading that neither give great coverage so is it better to go with p.p or the beauty balm then more foundation to cover my blemishes?

I'm FAIR (redhead) skinned with pink undertones, Primed & poreless is by far your better bet if you are either fair and/or your skin has pink undertones, as this is *yellow* toned & MUCH darker than it seems. I returned this but LOVE my Primed & Poreless in Light :) Hope this helps.

I'd go with a mineral foundation powder, I love Laura Mercier for price and hypo-allergenic reasons. I have super sensitive acne prone skin even as an adult. I love this product for everyday use and even use it as my primer for my foundation so I don't use as much foundation as the BB evens out my skintone before I even apply foundation.

answer 5
I use a primer meant for acne prone skin, such as the one made by Cover F/X. I have also found for my type of adult acne, where I usually have no more than 1 or 2 spots, albeit BIG ones, at a time, that rather than going for a heavier foundation, which hides not just your spots but even the "good skin"parts of your face, that it is better to work in layers. Go for the acne fighting primer, follow up with a concealer for the acne spots, (Murad makes a good one), then go for a lighter foundation like this one. If you have acne problems that are all over, not just limited to one or two spots, I'd still go the same route, but top this with a mineral foundation to set the BB cream and give you one extra layer of coverage. I find overall that using layers to build the coverage makes it look slightly more natural. Just my 2 cents!

I have the same skin as you and have used and own both products. Here's what I do. If my skin is good then I use the pp and some powder and I'm good to go. If I am having a bad skin day I use the beauty balm bc it gives me great coverage. I like to look natural and because the coverage is better than average I look like I have full make-up but I don't just the balm.

If you have yellow undertones, I recommend using the color that gives you a little bit of a rosy glow to counteract any sallowness. So whichever one has a rosy tint to it, would be my recommendation.

If you're more medium than olive/tan I would definitely go cream glow over nude glow, this product does run a bit dark. I have light to medium skin, more on the medium side and cream glow is perfect. In terms of undertones it's quite neutral, I would not say this is pink

To me, the color lineup is not in order from light-to-dark. It is "kind of" a combination of cool/neutral/warm overtones from light-to-dark. I had to return "Linen" for "Vanilla Glow" because the store lighting gave me a false impression of the true color .

Yes, the vanilla is the lightest. It's not as heavily pigmented as concealer or foundation, so it only needs to be correct within a few shades. I have fair skin, but if I tan in the summer, I probably won't need to change it.

It might be "oil free" but with it having an SPF, most SPF based foundations even are not going to be "mattifying" which is what you might want. I found, even not having extremely oily skin, that I needed setting powder, mattifying powder, or just pressed powder in general to abate the shiny quality of this product.
