Wet n Wild Fergie BB Cream SPF 15 / shade A104 Medium/Deep

Today's product comes from Wet n Wild...

WnW Fergie BB Cream in Medium/Deep

From the WnW Fergie Collection comes the Fergie 8-1 Beauty Balm in the shade Medium/Deep.  I purchased this at Wal-Mart for around $5.50 USD.  Inside the squeeze tube, you receive 1 fl. oz/30ml of liquid product.  This comes in at least 5 shades last I purchased this.

WnW Fergie BB Cream - packaging

Wet n Wild Fergie 8-1 BB Cream

Fergie's 8-1 Beauty Balm is considered an "8-1" because it supposed to be a primer, concealer, foundation, etc.  The squeeze tube you see on top is clean, easy to use and decent at controlling the amount of foundation you need.

WnW Fergie 8-1 BB / no flash, overcast light
Above : Swatch in natural light, overcast, no flash.  The BB itself is liquid, but viscous enough that it does not run quickly.  Underneath is the BB blended...thankfully, this "beauty balm" did fantastic at blending into my skin and to my coloring.

WnW Fergie BB - flash
Above: Swatch in natural light with flash.  I did not find that this flashed back on my hand, and when taking random pictures with this on my face, did not see any white casts.

There are a few things I like and dislike:

Like: Color matched me nicely, though with only 5 shades, I do not know if all will be this lucky
Was a dream to blend and layer.
Very hydrating, perfection during this harsh winter we are having.

Dislike: Only comes in a limited range
Wear is heavenly for about an hour, after that, on my combo/oily skin, I am an oil slick
Very heavily scented ( I love scented products and am not allergic to scents in makeup/skincare, but this is over the top!)
Coverage is lovely...if you have PERFECT skin...coverage is light, even with multiple layers.
