e.l.f. BB Cream SPF 20


I was on the hunt for a drugstore bb cream that had med-full coverage.
This e.l.f. bb cream stood out to me as well as the price point ($6).
The darkest shade I could find for my skin tone was in Nude.
I liked that there was a yellow undertone to it instead of a pinky tone.
So happy that there was a pump for easy application and preventing waste.

-Multitasking to prime, moisturize, and protect your skin
-Infused with vitamin E, jojoba, aloe, and cucumber for hydration
-It also claims to smooth and minimize pores for even skin
This bb cream goes on as a liquid but absorbs into the skin.
It blends into the skin with a creamy finish and is very hydrating.
The result? You get a dewy glow to the skin with a med-full coverage.
-It can be build able .
-I used my real techniques sponge to apply it.

Now for the bad news :(

-If you have oily skin, you have to set this bb cream with powder.
-I have normal to combination skin with an oily t-zone.
-When I did set my face with powder, it looked dry and patchy.
-I tried 3 different setting powders and got the same dry patchy result.
-My concealer, contour/blush would not blend easily on top of this bb.
-However, it did stay put all day and did not budge.

What are your thoughts?
