if the shade is a good match for your skintone, yes. I wear it alone or with a little powder and it evens out my rosacea. That's quite a miracle. I actually had to train myself to use less.

I use this under the Sephora collection powder foundation. The BB cream by itself will give a light to medium coverage so you can absolutely use it as a foundation. I like to use the powder on top of it to mattify my skin.

I do not believe it would apply well with a Beauty Blender. Using your finger tips is the best way I found to apply this product. It is essentially a tinted moisturizer so imagine applying moisturizer with the sponge. Might damage your blender as it may be difficult to clean it afterwards. Hope this helps.

Hi! I had a more general question concerning BB cream, which is... do i need to put on primer first before BB cream? I heard it's better to use primers because it generates a 'shield' to bad materials in cosmetics ... is that true?

Keep in mind that BB creams are not foundations, which is what primers are for. Foundations tend to be more mask-like, with fewer active skincare benefits. Bb Creams are a multi-purpose product that offers light coverage and evened skin tone, along with moisture, SPF, and anti-aging features.

Using a primer with a BB cream would create a barrier between your skin and the cream's beneficial properties. So no, I don't recommend it. In fact, it would be more suitable to use a BB cream as a primer itself for a heavy foundation. It would treat, hydrate, and protect while prepping the skin for another product. Just use sparingly and let it absorb first!

I feel that if you put primer on this, it would defeat a lot of the purpose of this BB Cream. It acts not only as a sunblock but moisturizer and skin care product and foundation.

You could use a primer, as I do put on a moisturizer below my BB cream as well, and have NOT had any adverse affects (no breakout, no greasy feeling). It dries matte with a little bit of a healthy sheen. I think you'll like it! :)

No, invest in a night serum/treatment. Though BB creams have skin care properties- their main purpose is to take place of a foundation. If you want good results that benefits your skin- invest in good skincare and replace your foundation with a BB cream.

I used Bare Minerals before switching to this BB. After reading another post, I tried layering my Bare Minerals over the top of the BB, but it looked a bit cakey to me. That said, I think it would provide good coverage if you just used the BB on spots, and put your Bare Minerals over the top.

I have acne prone combination skin as well. I use bare minerals mineral veil over the top of it to give me a glow, and it doesn't cake, even after a full day of wear. This is the first primer/foundation that doesn't do that to me. And it looks natural. Caudile radiance day fluid is much more expensive and is more "luminous" in my opinion, but it doesn't provide the coverage that I need for rosacea. The mineral veil makes up for this. It looks very natural, I use it for my "I'm not wearing makeup" makeup. It stands the bright natural light test in my magnified mirror.

I have combination skin that is also very sensitive. This bb cream isn't cakey at all. I've used it a week now and it feels as close to natural as possible. I use my bare minerals for additional cover-up so you definitely can combine the two.

Ever since I turned 22, my skin has been breaking out and it has been a difficult journey trying to find something that will not only cover, but also heal the acne scars and active pimples. I put this on with the Pro airbrush #55 and let it sit for a few minutes and then dust my everyday minerals powder over it and my skin looks flawless. I dont even have to put concealer on anymore!

Before pumping you need to thoroughly shake the tube. Otherwise the pigment and oils can separate and it becomes ineffective. The texture is a mix between a cream and a liquid. Its not super thick, but it's not runny.

I have used this bb under both cream and powder foundations. I find that it makes an excellent base for both. I also use a primer underneath it, but not always (sometimes I forget!). I think it really helps to smooth out the skin and helps your foundations to have better coverage. I think this would work well on its own as a primer, as my makeup always sets well on top of it.
