Okay, you guys know me, I complain... alot... about products and for me to gush over something is VERY rare but THIS I have to gush about. I got a sample of Cream Glow and will give it a proper try tomorrow. I loved how it made the fine lines on the back of my hand disappear, it felt fantastic, it looked fantastic, no smell (unlike Garnier's which I can't stand the smell of). Even though it's $32 it is 1.5 oz compared to Smashbox (whose colors were either too light or too dark for me) you get more and for less. THIS is what I expect in a (Western) BB cream. It DOES contain silicone in it BUT it also has some natural ingredients in it.

maybe what I really need is the world's most awesome primer for oily skin instead of a BB cream.

You might actually like their Primed and Poreless Powder primer under this BB Cream. It is rocking my world! Love it so much!!

I.

Want.

This.

I just discovered their foundation a few months ago and it's amazing.  If this is half as good I'll be a happy, happy girl.

I LOVE this product! I received a sample of the Nude Glow with last month's Too Faced order and immediately went out for more. My Sephora didn't have it yet, but Ulta did, and I got it in a more complimentary tint, the Cream Glow. If you're not big on liquid foundations, this product is great for you. I use UD's Razor Sharp Finishing Powder over this and it keeps my very oily t-zone almost completely matte all day.

They all look so yellow to me o_O Kind of a shame as I was interested in this but from the swatches I think the palest one will be far too warm for me...

You're right, they are all quite yellow. I had to compensate for it with a very fair setting powder. Still love it though! :) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

Why are all the BB creams so dark?! I am absolutely dying to try some, but every brand I've swatched run pretty dark in comparison to the tinted moisturizers in the same shade names.

All Western brands tend to be on the dark and/or orange side. I like the Too Faced one but have to neutralize the orange in it with a color corrector.

Hello Ladies!

I'm back from lunch/ULTA's and I tested the Too Faced Balm in Nude Glow.  There was a sales lady that actually helped me (but wasn't very knowledgeable) and we determined that this was the best match.  In the store I thought I looked a little red,  outside I thought I looked a little pink, and at work I think it looks fine.... so I think there's some settling and adjusting time to take into consideration.

I applied the product all over.  I was expecting this to be full coverage but it wasn't, it was sheer in my opinion... but I have to say that it feels wonderful.  Very soft to the touch and light on the skin.  The sales woman suggested to moisturize, balm, then add foundation for more coverage.  "So, its a primer then?"  She said no... not really, but in your case it would be because you'd need the extra coverage.  *sigh*

So, I thought the balms were supposed to moisturize, prime, protect and perfect... so why not stick to my original routine of Moisturize, Prime, and Foundation... where's the benefit to the balm in my case??

Some photos - all taken in the car with the sun source behind the building (behind me).

Dark spots are skin discoloration/scars due to horrible acne breakout last year. 







Now, is it just me or does my neck look lighter than my face??

Your neck does look lighter. That's the problem with Western brands. The Western brands tend to to be more of a primer or tinted moisturizer than a true beauty balm which is suppose to be a foundation replacement for those who have some kind of skin procedure.

Thanks for the Swatches! I'm very interested in this product, and I don't mind it being sheer as it isn't really supposed to be full coverage.
