I got the lightest shade of Too Faced at the sale yesterday, and it works on glow-in-the-dark me. It seems a bit on the sheer side, and has neutral undertones rather than pink or yellow.

I watched some reviews of it, one girl was comparing three BB creams and said it was less sheer than the Revlon one (obviously this chick wasn't vegan) but more sheer than the third one.

I wore it as my foundation today with mineral powder and I thought it covered fine, but I have no major zits or scarring currently that need to be covered.

It's more sheer than the Smashbox one I bought it to replace (because the asparagus hats test now), but coverage is buildable. I have really red cheeks, so I have to do a couple of layers to hide that, but then it's great because it's easy to blend out at the jaw line. I really like it.

Honestly, I want it to be kind of sheer because I want to wear it in the summer when I don't want to wear a mask of melting foundation, AND it has SPF. Also I know some people were complaining because it's too dewy or luminous and I really didn't find that to be an issue at all after the powder.

I do, too. When I first said it was on the sheer side, I didn't mean that as a negative criticism, just a description. I like to be seen through my makeup. The more opaque foundations make me feel like I'm wearing a mask, or look like a scary Mary Kay lady gone wrong.

I bought the Derma E bb creme and I've tested it out. I like it- I got the light and I think it would work pretty well for a lot of skin tones. It's definitely not yellow which is good. I used it on top of sunscreen, even though it already does have spf 25, because it's really pretty thick and opaque and I didn't want to slather it on.

It has good coverage. It didn't cover this one broken blood vessel I have so I used some mineral makeup on top of that one area, but other than that just finished with some light powder and it looks pretty good. I'd say this something I would use for everyday, because it's convenient and gives a nice finish. Normally I use mineral foundation mixed with some water, and really this is quite similar to that, but less hassle. I would like to try applying this with a flat top brush to see if that improves the application.

This looks vegan:

And affordable! I think I'll give it a shot.

Did you find it locally or order online?

I had to order it- I haven't seen it in any stores so far. It's kind of pricey, but I bought it at Nature's Organic Market for about $28 including shipping, so not too bad.

I was looking at that one too and am interested- be sure to report back after you've tried it.

I am also eying this Devita one:

I just picked up Tarte's BB Cream and tried it today. The texture was not what I was expecting- light and mousse-y. It bills itself as a "bb primer" though so that makes sense. My primary issues are redness and acne, so I still needed to follow up with some concealer in my bad spots, but overall it looked and felt very smooth and natural on my skin.

I used the Andalou Naturals creme today for the first time. I used it over my daily Vitamin C lotion, and it was a bit oily going on. I thought it would stay shiny, but it did end up soaking in and feeling pretty natural. I might try it tomorrow on bare skin. It is a bit thicker than I had expected -- more like a foundation. It has very light coverage, but did even out my skin tone. I primarily want this for the sun protection and to even skin tone, so I'm hoping this ends up working out for me! I plan to use it all week and see if it causes any breakouts or clogged pores. Fingers crossed.

Did you get the Oil Control or the All-in-One, Marmoset?

ETA: N/M; I see that the Oil Control isn't tinted.

Let us know how your experiment worked out! That one at least doesn't look incredibly expensive. Wonder if I could find it in Canada.

Someone on the liquid foundation thread suggested I try Paula's Choice, so I ordered sample of both the liquid foundation and their version of a BB cream. Its called Barely There Tint SPF 30.

I decided to do a weekend experiment of forgoing the usual workday layer of moisturizer, primer, foundation, powder and just go with Barely There and some powder on my TZone. (I have combo skin but my nose gets super oily and the pores on my cheeks are medium-sized.) I'll be damned if my skin didn't look good, just enough coverage, and it was light and my skin was less shiny than if I was wearing the usual (I was expecting to be an oil slick inside 10 minutes). If I was having a horrible skin day I might go with foundation, but I liked this stuff otherwise.

Its $15 and right now the PAula's Choice website is showing specials of free shipping or 3 free samples with a $5 purchase. Oh, and the poster who recommended this brand did verify that the foundation and BB cream are vegan. I'm not sure about the rest of the products; I was going to send them an email today. I can report back if anyone is interested.

Yep Boots No 7. The Boots No 17 (or I think it's just 17 now) is vegan too.

I recently tried this stuff- Suntegrity 5 in 1 in Light, I ordered a sample tube from their website.

http://www.suntegrityskincare.com/produ ... spf-30-new

It's ok. I like the sun protection and used it a few days as my moisturizer/sunscreen alone. The coverage is not that great, though, and I think it's bit yellowish. Also, I think it has the tendency to run into my eyes which is a huge peeve of mine with any sunscreen type product. I don't think I'd purchase a full size.

that REALLY makes me happy. I have been staring at the Boots stuff in Target forever trying to remember if they were Cf or not and could not remember. THANK YOU!
