My Maybelline BB Cream Review
Touted as a 8 in 1 skin perfector (blurs imperfections, brightens, evens skin tone, smooths, hydrates, enhances, protects with SPF 30, 0% oils and heavy ingredients) I was excited to try this, despite the hydrating claim, which is usually a no-no for my oily skin type. I fell for the hype and tried it any way. Here are my pros and cons after I giving it a test run:
Decent range of shades
Great for dry skin types
Great for those that don't like foundation
Great for those that want a bit of makeup without wearing a makeup look
Great for teens getting into a makeup routine (with a dry skin type!)
Not for the #teamoilygirls
While I was a bit impressed by the less-than-a-tinted-moisturizer feel (no coverage, slight tint), this balm had me greasy. I would have had to set this balm with blot powder. I would even feel uncomfortable wearing this in the cooler, drier months.
This was a no-go for your girl; FAIL, but I'm sure this will make a lot of women happy. A bit of pampering for the skin without the "I'm wearing a heavy foundation makeup" look.
Have you tried this? What's your skin type? What do you think of it?
