primer too?
Do you use primer with this product and if so, do you apply it under or over the cc cream?

I don't use a primer under it but there's no reason you couldn't, I suppose. You would put the primer under the CC cream (just like paint primer under the regular paint color!).

I haven't tried it with an actual primer yet, but I spray Urban Decay De-Slick on my face before applying because I have a tendency to be oily and I really like the combination, especially since this CC cream can be kind of heavy and a little greasy when you first apply it.

Hey there! No, you do not need a primer. HOWEVER, if you have a favorite primer that you can't go without, using it under the CC cream will be just fine. (:

I actually mix a big dot of this with a big dot of my primer (currently Korres Pomegranate). It mixes together well.

I personally don't. Normally I think cc creams are like primers itself. So you'd use the cc cream, then maybe top it off with a finishing powder or bronzer if you're looking for more coverage.

I am naturally VERY white. i initially got this as a sample in medium and it blended so naturally with a nice glow. The bronzer I used before this product is even better with it. very happy. The other responses really make sense as i would have thought i needed it in fait had i not tried medium.

If you can't get to a store, my salesperson told me that when in doubt you should go a shade darker than you would think. I went for "medium," and I am -- for reference, "light" in Stila, "light-medium"/"agent 6" in Tarte and Sand in Laura Mercier. Hope that helps.

You really would be best to try this on in store. I have a fair complexion with lots of redness. After doing a color match in store, I ended up with a shade two darker than what I would have purchased online. So if you must buy online, go darker than what you think - it matches itself to your skintone.

Go in and try it on in the store. It's impossible to know which shade is right for your skin using color swatches over the internet.

You'll get a much better match and will thus be much happier with the product :)

If you are trying to cover-up acne this is not the product for you. I would describe this cream to be very moisturizing and I think that is why some people describe it as "heavy". The coverage is more like a tinted moisturizer.
I use this on areas that have blemishes, however I have to use a dab of foundation on those areas if I want to camouflage them.

I don't want to speak for you or your specific skin, but I have very large pores, oily skin and am prone to blackheads and acne. Still, this CC cream worked great for me!

Sephora is great about giving out samples. Try it out for a few days before making a full purchase just to be sure.

I don't apply a moisturizer in the morning with this. I find this to be enough for me, but I have fairly normal skin. If your skin is on the dry side, you may find a little extra moisturizer necessary. Use something light because this is a little greasy, I've found.

this product is quite creamy its not thick though. So it really depends on your skin type. If I'm on the run, I just wash my face and put this on after I use clarifying lotions. I think bb creams are more thick in texture so if you are dry skinned you may still want to put a tad bit of moisturizer underneath.

I was color matched at Sephora by the new machine thing and a makeup artist and I usually go for light-medium shades, but in this she matched me to the lightest one because the second to lighted tends to be more yellow-based. So I would go for the fair one if you tend to be more pink than yellow.

Your description sounds like me except I'm on the yellowish side. I use Light and it's a good match. This product is supposed to adapt to your skintone, so I think Light would be a good color to try.

I use this and it has helped with evening out my skin tone. On days when I am doing more than grocery shopping and I want to look my best I dab on a little foundation in a couple key areas that need more coverage, right over the CC cream. I actually feel like I am wearing so mush less makeup it's really nice.

I think you could layer this under your foundation, however, have you tried this alone with several layers? I feel that it is quite builable and use this on days I don't feel like using my NARS sheer glow foundation. Try it - you may not need the foundation. Be sure to set it!

Question
Is this a good choice for blending in freckles?
I am a Medium to fair skinned woman with Light Golden Blonde hair and Green to Yellow Green Eyes. I look great with a Tan, but freckles are a side effect. I don't hate them but would like to blend them with my complexion.Is this a self tanner or a more temporary situation. I don't want people to look at me and say..Makeup! I like a natural look. Is this the product for me. What shade should I use? My freckles are tan but my skin is lighter? Is this product better when used with a no-shine powder?
Thanks

I would suggest this only as a light base. I don't think it would cover freckles. I have a lot of beauty marks and it does not cover them. Even though they probably would be darker than freckles.

This works best for getting rid of redness without using a heavy foundation, not really for getting a tan look, just for evening out skin tone to your natural shade. It is very light and looks natural when I use it. For the color you should use, I would suggest going into a store and testing there to see what works best for you. It should be close to your natural skin color.

I think so. It might be better than the bb creams because the cc's are supposed to be lighter but made to cover imperfections, even out redness I bought it to hide my acne scars and cheek redness and I do see that my cheek redness is in check and its not cakey.

From the swatches I took at the store, tone is similar to medium except that it has more of a pink base whereas medium was more yellow-based.

Question
Is this the same as the sample I got?
When I was checking into ordering it from my recent purchase, there was a note that it was permanently unavailable (or something similar). I sent the sample in a gift to my daughter and she really loved it. She said it looks white when she squeezes it out of the sample packet but that it blends right into her skin beautifully. This SEEMS like it would be the same as the sample-maybe it's the SAMPLE that is no longer going to be available. Please let me know so I can get some for her...and let me know please if there are plans to discontinue this product, or if it's just the sample that was discontinued?

It is a light green almost white color when it goes on your skin. And then it blends beautifully with your tone.

to answer your question: I'm a big stila product fan and this believe it or not is "said to be" limited edition. Which means there is a possibility both the sample and the actual item upon being sold out won't be available...i have yet to see the sample come out myself...but I do own the actual product and I absolutely love it and use it every day or every other day. I know its only available HERE and on stilacosmetics.com. This product does come out white-ish green then when spread onto skin turns into the shade you bought...whether its the paler tones or the daker. I use shade 03 and its amazing. I just realized there was a sample a couple months ago in the tube...YES! if it black mini tube THIS IS IT
