Maybelline BB Stick Review in Natural8:26 PM
A few months ago, Maybelline has launched their new BB Cream in stick version. Many MANY bloggers has wrote reviews about it, i think i am the last one who talk about this hahaha. Anyway, it got quite a rave online. Would I rave it too?
The BB cream claims to have 8 benefits and multifunctioned make up. It is an instant BB Cream + shine free powder + UV protection all at one!
Price: 53.000 rupiahs or $6, price may vary
Amount: 10 grams
Shade: Natural, Radiance, Fawn, mine is Natural
The packaging is similar like lipstick, only this one is GIANT! You can twist it up and twist it down. The cap is tight, and for me, i think the packaging is very practical. I can even keep this inside my pencil case!
The texture is a little bit dry and powdery. I love the powdery part of it. Perfect for touch up. I ussually brought this along with me to touch up parts that looks blotchy during the day. If you have cracky and dry skin, make sure you put tons of moisturizer first because the bb cream will exaggerate your dry skin.
As for the finish, i think it is matte and glowy finish. If you have a dry skin, you won`t even need to set with powder, seriously! The cream is easy to blend and looks pretty on the skin.
On me, it lasts only three hours and the oil control is not very good. That is why i am only using it for touch up. I have it everyday in my purse and it is just VERY. VERY practical. I only dislike the fact that it does not stay under the sun. It melts. Literally. When i wipe my sweat, the bb cream transferred and leaving blotchy mark. That is why, i never use it to the entire face.
Here is the swatches. As you can see, the coverage is low to medium and it does not cover the pen mark entirely. The yellow tone of the cream will tone down the redness and even out the skin. But if you have a lot to cover, then you are probably going to need concealer. I ussually use Maybelline Mineral concealer, it works hand to hand bringing even and bright under eye.
Back in Semarang i did a little make over to my friend Mega. I think the stick does a good job on brightening the face instantly, plus evening out skintone. Other than using it for touch up i do like it to use it as lip concealer too. It works! and it is not as heavy as real lip concealer, believe me.
- multifunctioned and travel friendly
- practical packaging
- Matte finish
- Instant brightening and even out the skintone
- It doesnt break me out
- Available locally and affordable
- Melt under the sun!
This is a good addition in my TOUCH UP arsenal. I only use it too even out certain area that got blotchy during the day. I recommend this to you who has normal to dry skin because it is going to stay longer on your skin
So girls, that is my take on Maybelline BB Cream stick.
Have you tried it, what do you think?
