Hi Phyrra! Thank you for the thorough review, this is very helpful! Your skin looks much smoother and more evened out with this cream. I am curious though, because I'm almost exactly your skin tone/coloring - do you feel like it's not at all too dark once blended in? In the second to last picture I think I can see a demarcation line between your face and neck so I worry it may be too dark for me, but it's hard to tell because in the other pictures it looks pretty good. What do you think about the color? Thanks :)
@SasquatchSwatch Hi there! This is not actually a full review. This is more my initial impressions of the Beauty Balm. I think it looks slightly dark in pictures. However, in person, it doesn't seem noticeable (when normally, people comment if my foundation is too dark). I wore it out for NYE and received compliments about how 'flawless' my skin looked. So I'm still deciding on that :)
@Phyrra @SasquatchSwatch Hi, Phyrra! I have the same concerns as Sasquatch up there. I bought the Holika Holika BB creams on your suggestion (love them, by the way!) and I think that's about as deep as a color can go on my face. How much darker would you say the UD BB cream is compared to the Holika Holika one you have?
@pumpkindollyy @SasquatchSwatch It's a lot darker than the holika holika bb cream. You're better off using this as a primer. While I like how it makes my skin look, it's definitely darker than my coloring.
However, it works just fine as a primer. when I wore it out without foundation, I got a ton of compliments on my skin and no one noticed it was too dark except for me.
In the past people would notice my foundation was too dark and would comment that I either looked sunburnt or too peachy. So for my own peace of mind, I'm only wearing it as a primer now.
@Phyrra Okay, thanks! I kind of want to try this now :D
