My Take on MUA All in One BB Cream:

MUA All in One BB Cream comes in a black tube with silver graphics. The tube has a screw cap and a little hole to dispense right amount of the product but pressing it too hard can get an excess amount out so make sure to press it with light hands.

The texture of the BB cream is soft, has a thick consistency and it spreads and blends easily. It feels lil sticky on application and sometimes a lil greasy if you’ve got oily patches or oily skin but will go well on dry skin as it seems to give a dewy effect rather than a matte effect. I don’t think you need any sort of moisturizer underneath this BB cream in this weather as it is moisturizing in itself though I can’t say about how it feels in winter where skin tends to get more dry.MUA All in One BB Cream ReviewThe shade I have is medium which I think is a perfect match for my skin tone NC30-35. It lightens my face a bit than my normal skin tone which I always expect from my base products so a good thing for me. There are total 8 shades available shown on the website and I think this would be a good match for most Indian skin tones and shade light would be too light for most Indian skin tones. It does not get cakey but feels a slight heavy in this hot weather so I’d suggest you to use only a small amount if you are using it in summers. It will make a good option for winters though and in summers you can use it by topping it with a matte compact like I do! That way, it doesn’t seem too dewy or say greasy!

It gives medium coverage and the coverage is not buildable, it seems to give only medium coverage and you will need a concealer to hide flaws like dark circles, blemishes and pigmentation. It doesn’t clog pores or breaks me out! The drawbacks of this BB cream is that it doesn’t have any SPF so a sunscreen has to be used while moving out in the daytime, it tends to settle in fine lines, it seems to get greasy in the middle of the day and that it feels a bit heavy coz of the thick texture.MUA All in One BB Cream Review

    I so love your reviews arzoo. They are so well written and detailed :D I anyway dont rely on BB creams. I like to have something in between foundation and BB for my skin.. So i have started opting for CC :D

    Greasiness is a concern as I have oily skin.. but I expect a lot from MUA products. Beautifully reviewed Arzoo !

    So everyone seems to use BB creams but I don’t know – is it better than using a primer (I personally don’t use it and my foundation stays) and a concealer?

    Bit worried about ageing agents within it!
