Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfecter BB Cream: Review and Swatches

Today I have a review for a fairly popular item, the Garnier BB cream in Light medium. For one I am really glad they came out with an oil free version, I heard that the normal one is very greasy, so definitely not for my skin type. It also is not a cheap product, these sell for about $18 at London Drugs, but I grabbed mine at Ulta for $10. To read my full review click.......

The formula is very liquidy and it is really easy to get it everywhere and the cap gets quite messy. But despite the formula out of the tube, when it gets on the face, it applies beautifully. It blends fairly easily and you don't need much to cover your face. It also dries to a nice matte finish which is fantastic, I don't like looking too shinny. My skin definitely liked this more than wearing a heavy foundation all the time and improved it a bit.
My biggest problem is the shade range for the cream. The normal formula has a light, light/medium, and medium dark. The oil free however only comes in light/medium and medium dark. I find that I can blend in the light/medium and it looks fine, but I come and look at it a bit later and I just feel somewhat orange. I would love it if they came out with a light version of this for a better range of shades.

How do you feel about BB creams this Summer?
