Packaging: 9.25/10

This product comes in a plastic squeeze-tube with a small opening and twist-on cap. The packaging is opaque, which is good for keeping the ingredients inside stable and away from sun exposure.

Quality: 9.75/10

This beauty balm gives you light coverage (a little more than Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream). It leaves a completely natural finish that is neither matte nor dewy/oily.

The product has a thin, liquid consistency. It feels extremely light on the skin and I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything but moisturizer throughout the day.

When I initially swatched the shade Nude Glow, I thought it would be a little too dark. But the pigmentation is sheer enough that the shade will work on NC20-25 skin.

This BB cream won’t keep your skin’s natural oil-production at bay, so I did still have to blot a couple of times during the day.

Of course, the crucial thing is that this product gives you sun protection with an SPF of 20. The protective ingredients are Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which provide you both UVA and UVB protection.

Ease of Use: 10/10

This product glides over the skin effortlessly. The light pigmentation blends and sinks into the skin and looks completely natural. The easiest and fastest way to apply this beauty balm is with your fingers.

Price: 9/10

For $32.00 you get 1.5 ounces of product. This is the average price and amount for a beauty balm in Too Faced’s brand category.

    Would love to try this out, but I don’t think they have this is my shade, and if they do, I’m afraid it will look ashy, lol.
