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!).

Yes I do apply a primer. I use the two faced primer before I apply the Stila CC cream.

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 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.

Probably the light shade. You could go and get a sample of both fair and light and try it out at home.

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 it alone without any moisturizer, but I have oily skin, so I feel as though I don't need the extra moisturizer since the product already has SPF 20.

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 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 :)

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.

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.

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.

From the swatches I took at the store, I would say go with either fair or medium. They're more yellow-based compared to light and tone, which had more pink in them.
