PACKAGING:Packaging is really pretty and looks great at the price it comes.It is housed in a white tube with hot pink band where BB cream is written ,a metallic cap.It looks pricey and very cute.A nozzle is provived for dispensing hte product which does help in controlling the amount of product needed.

SHADE:There is one One shade available and i find it a big Con.It is a yellow toned shade.Althought it does matchees my skin tones after around 15 minutes of application but it looks a bit dark and grey on application.

OVERALL PERFORMANCE:Now,coming to the overall performance.I must say,i am very happy to have this.I am not an avid user of BB creams as I like foundations but i was curious to have this because of its packaging.

The texture is thick almost like a foundation.It does cover minor redness,uneveness and provided a more pilished look to face as compared to other BB creams used so far.I loved the Garnier BB cream for the glow it provides but this one provides more of coverage and has a matte finish.

You can easily see in the above pic that my face looks a bit dark and grey in the after pic but it has more evened out and pores are less visible.

It has a pleasant fragrance reminiscent to other Ponds products.

However, i would like to mention that the shade adjusts after sometime and I feel very grey when i put it.It has medium coverage and i generally use it eith Garnier BB cream as it find it a bit too matte for my liking.A moisturiser underneath is very important ad it will accentaute dry sking a lot.I find that my face looks very flat when i use this so i use a blusher after this.

It has to be blended a bit quickly as it dries fast.Also,my pores are less visible.

Staying power is excellent.I have worn this for maximum 9 hours and my face looked fresh after that too.
