Picture this- the entire blogosphere is buzzing with rave reviews for this supposedly revolutionary product so you snag it up the first chance you get but are left utterly devastated when the product turns out a dud for you. That happened to me with the Maybelline BB Cream
Maybelline BB Stick comes in the form of a twist up stick in packaging reminiscent of their BB Creams. The cap is transparent and shuts securely with a click. The shade name is given at the bottom to make our lives easier. The packaging does not feel flimsy, so you can easily carry it around in your bag.
There are just two shades available: Fawn and Radiance (gasp!). Why so measly, Maybelline? I chose the darker one named – Fawn for my medium dark NC 44 skin tone and I must say it is a pretty good match, if not a tab bit grey-er. The texture is smooth and easy to use, but not so creamy that it would succumb to the Delhi heat. It is pretty pigmented in a single swipe, gives decent coverage without clogging my pores and making my skin oily. I was worried that it would melt off my face in a couple of hours but that did not happen, so rejoice! Staying on for around 5-6 hours at the very least, it does not fade away with time like a lot of other drugstore foundations.
The formula claims to contain SPF 21 AND PA+++, but since I meticulously apply sunscreen every time I go out, I cannot comment on this claim.
Oh, how I love thee:
Oh, how I loathe thee:
Let’s check the photos and swatches:
Recommendation: If you find a match, get it! You have nothing to lose with it (This is coming from someone who is always wary of drugstore base makeup). If you are looking for decent coverage, SPF, foundation and concealer all rolled into on product then get it.
