Rated 5 out of 5 by jennifers from This is a great B.B. cream to use, I have the shade coffee glaze and it matches me perfectly. The price is good for drugstore, If you have oily skin I would definitely wear a matte primer before applying to skin. Because it has a tendency to make your skin oily after a few hours of use. And a little of this product goes a long way, it doesn’t give you full coverage. But just enough to give you a natural makeup look. The store that I’ve seen carry this brand is Rite aid, and Walgreens. I have repurchased this product because it’s great, I love it!! As a darker skin tone female, it’s hard to find shades that match your skin tone where you don’t look ashy. And I think this is the best for us black girls out there

Rated 5 out of 5 by Donna V from My new go to BB cream I had tried this BB cream after spotting it in the small section at my local drugstore. I feel like it has added an extra POW to my makeup game. I actually mix it in with my Black Radiance foundations to get my shade and find that it improves the color blend and makes the effect even better. This is definitely a cream I will be sticking with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doreen from Perfect for a non- makeup wearer I bought this BB cream from target lady summer and I'm amazed with the results. I never wear makeup but, wanted something to even out my red and yellow undertones so, I bought the shade Cafe. I also, have dry skin in some areas on my face. I used a setting primer spray before applying it with a stipple brush. My skin glowed and toned the undertones down. My face looked flawless and hydrated. I added some lipgloss, eyeliner, and mascara to my look and was really happy with the results. I ended up buying 2 more and let my 16 year-old try it which, she loved, too. My only complaint is, you can't find it in stores anywhere. Is it being discontinued? I truly, hope not. It's hard to find a good, affordable, BB cream (and makeup overall) for ethnic skin color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Laila from Love! As a woman of my color it's very hard to find a color that matches. A shade may come close but is always off in some way, but this! This is my exact shade with no orange or ashy looks like with other foundations. Can hardly tell I'm wearing anything. Love. It just offers no coverage but who cares!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary W from I like this BB cream I like this BB cream because it goes on smooth and does not give me a heavy feel bad foundation does especially since I don’t need full coverage I just like to use it to touch up some areas especially like under my eyes

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ellen H. from Good Product-Difficult to find I have used this line of makeup for a few years, sadly many of the stores in my area no longer sell it and I have been fortunate enough to be able to find it online. I recommend it to my friends and family also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KizzieB from Smooth coverage all day I apply this every morning over my Cetaphil Moisturizing lotion, and it blends well for all-day wear. It’s light and provides adequate coverage over blemishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eboni from Match me to a T This shade is so lavish. It's rich and smooth, but like most bb creams you will need a matte moisturizer underneath if your skin is oily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marlenaknows from This is one of the best drugstore coverage product I've ever purchased. Until discovering this product I had never found a BB cream or any lightweight coverage product that matched my skin tone well. A few things I've tried were: [product:laura-mercier-oil-free-tinted-moisturizer-spf-20] (not dark enough), [product:it-cosmetics-your-skin-but-bettertm-cctm-cream-with-spf-50] (yuck, terrible brown shade looks grey!), [product:nars-pure-radiant-tinted-broad-spectrum-spf-30-moisturizer] (great coverage but no shade match). But this BB cream works perfectly for me. I used it almost everyday during the summer. I loved that it had SPF but didn't have that purple/grey tint. It's a BB cream so I didn't expect it to wear for hours. It lasts a good 5 hours on a normal day. No creasing, running or streakiness. Great for on-the-go as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mekiahj from I used this for a year and it was amazing. It would last me through work but I was only working part time however it never failed me. I used the color chocolate when my skin was deeper and now its a tad bit too dark. I have used it with a comprehensive skincare and with just a water only routine. (no moisturizer) It doesn't really provide moisture so you need a moisturizer beforehand. I find this product easy to use, slightly mattiifying but at the same time not really an oil controller, though it shouldn't produce copious amounts of oil on your face. This is from a person who is more comb/oily with some dehydration issues. I never broke out from it nor have I ever set it with powder and I actually only applied this with my fingers, no tools. I'm trying brown sugar next since I used my first bottle of chocolate already after a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by infamousmaya from When I got into makeup this was one of the very first products I bought. Ive been doing my own makeup for about two years now and this is about the only liquid base I use on my face. It gives an adjustable coverage that can go from light to about medium heavy which I like because I enjoy the no makeup makeup type look. It also matches my skin tone very well. All in all one of my favorite makeup products

Rated 3 out of 5 by amazingly_aonna from This product is great for those that have little to no acne scaring or dark spots in their face that want a lighter coverage option. It is definitely a dewy finish so it needs to be set with a powder. I’m not a total fan of the finish but it is a B.B. cream and not a foundation. I don’t reach for it too often unless my skin is have a pretty good day and I don’t want a full foundation on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by xjayyxceex from I’ve tried finding a B.B. cream that matched my skin tone for awhile now with no luck. Most companies don’t really cater to dark skin women when it comes to B.B. cream. So when I was able to actually find my shade and wear it without looking like a Duracell battery I was overjoyed. It’s such a great, lightweight alternative to wearing foundation in the summer. I absolutely love this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by vc2f7b from I purchased this for the summer time for my youngest daughter being that she does not wear foundation,she fell in love with the coverage very lightweight easy to apply not good for oily skin unless you place a powder on top ,but it’s a good product we fell in love with that so we kept it, The colors that we used were spot on and I think that made it work even better very skin like

Rated 4 out of 5 by sunmoonkgg from This is my second time reviewing this because I decided to try this out once again. I first wanna say that if you have oily skin then you might wanna use some setting powder that is very matte. I have combo skin that is on the dry side when it’s cool and oily side when it’s warm. Since it is water based I would definitely wanna use a brush then buff out with a beauty blender.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sweetsteph83 from [product:black-radiance-true-complexion-bb-cream] is a good alternative to foundation, especially in the summer months. Also a plus that it has sunscreen in it. It was a good match for my skintone, however, it did not do well with my skin type. I'm oily and need something with a bit of oil control or that mattifies. I would recommend to others but would not repurchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Olivia from Note the right shade for my skin tone. This appeared to be a lighter complexion due to the options online but it was too dark for my skin tone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gwynnne from This bb cream feels good and makes my face look good. It has sunscreen included so that I don't have to worry too much about the sun. The colors seem to have an orangy undertone in it which I don't like. I'd were to change something about this product, I would have it in cooler undertones too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nancyn39 from I bought this at I bought this at the height of the bb craze and its great. Great coverage and its really light. Here in the south during summer, you don't want heavy makeup. In the winter its just enough to keep you looking dewy. This gave me coverage without feeling covered. Highly recommend for any age group. I am buying it over and over again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from I use black radiance true complexion bb cream in the shade coffee glaze. I like that this bb cream looks natural and matches my skin tone. The drawback is that it is not full coverage. I still like using this product, as I am a newbie to using makeup products. I recommend this bb cream to women who are seeking an affordable bb cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by laniaa700 from When its summer time I try not to use lots of products. This BB cream is about $7 and its sheer but it adds just the right amount of color to even my skin tone and give me a glow. I like that this product is geared towards ethnic skin and the shade range reflects that. If you have a darker complexion, give this a try for sure!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sindyn from I stumbled upon this at Target this week and couldn't believe how great it works based on the price alone. I found a perfect complexion match, which is usually hard for me. It blends right in and gives an airbrush look AND has spf for skin protection. This has been my routine this week with a little mascara and lip balm.

What is the best way to apply this? With fingers, sponge, or a brush?
