matte

Hello,

in my most recent Avon package I got some new make-up for the face. I feel like I haven't picked up anything in the terms of foundation or BB cream in a while from them. Partially because nothing so far have worked for me and secondly because they haven't show us anything new that would spark my interest.

I ordered the new improved Nutra Effects BB cream in matte version in the shade Light. They also have dewy version and both are available in two shades. Since my skin is oily and fair I got the lighter shade.

I feel like the tube is tiny but it holds 30 ml, like a lot of other BB creams, I guess it is just the feeling. The product itself is very liquid so be careful when you open it up (the amount on my hand is huge, with that much of product I can cover my entire face, neck and chest area if I'm wearing a bit more cut shirt).

It has a SPF 15, which isn't a whole lot but better than nothing, right?
The finish is indeed matte and it stays that way for quite a while, I also tried to apply it on already greasy skin and it worked, it mattified it.

The tone of it is pretty yellow which is fine by me but once I start to spread it out it get a bit orange-y on me and also dark (keep in mind that I'm using the lighter shade). I have to be careful and use just a little bit so the tone fits me but that also results in poor coverage.
In conclusion, I would say this isn't great for fair skin tones with pink to neutral undertone. If you happen to have oily skin with medium complexion with lots of yellow undertone and practically perfect skin that just needs a bit of blurring, then you found your match but for me this isn't something I could identify with so I'm giving it a thumb down.


Thank you for reading and have a nice day
