No 23 is like the darkest shade they had. This is the pore control version which personally I don’t see a difference in with the original. The bb cream is lighter than most as you don’t really get a lot of the product on the sponge. It just give the right amount. I usually use a stippling brush also. I find that it’s easier especially after I abused the sponge.
This doesn’t exactly give me the best look. But I can get away with it as I use it sparingly. It does turn oily around the nose area. But that’s easy to touch up. So overall it’s alright but I don’t really use it enough.
Every compact, you are given a free refill. I don’t think I will use it again. But we’ll see. It’s quite a waste of money if I don’t. This is about $60 retail price. But you can get it about $30ish online. So the markup is quite something.
