Pigmentation & Color:
Like many BB creams in the market, this only comes in one fair shade. It suits my NC20 skin perfectly though it may look ghastly white freshly applied. Give it a few minutes and watch the cream magically blends into your skin color!! Haha!! :D I'm quite impressed with the coverage of this - it managed to cover my pimples, and did wonderfully even out my ruddy face:
Pimples on my forehead begone! No pink cheeks as well!! Me likey! :D
Texture & Scent:
This BB cream spreads quite well so its a joy to apply! I like how it isnt very thick as well! :D This has a light plasticky chemical smell which disappears quickly.
This BB cream comes in a tube with a screw off cap! I love how tiny the dispensing hole is:
I also like that it comes with a safety "seal":
This BB cream stayed put for almost 8 hours without making my face shiny! :D
Price & Availability:
This BB Cream is priced at 199 baht, and should be available at all Maybelline displayers in Bangkok.
This is perfect for everday use since it looks so natural! :D
This is the second BB Cream i've ever used! I bought this at a whim in Bangkok because its so cheap and i've heard wonderful things about this baby! :D
And i'm so glad i tried this one out! :D For one, it looks really really natural on my skin (more so than the one from The Face Shop i reviewed some time ago)! It didn't make my skin greasy or anything too! I'm loving the natural glow i get from this one!! :D
It also lasts pretty long (although it did fade a little towards the end of the day)! I removed this after 12 hours and this is still there! Most foundations would have disappeared on me by then! Amazing!! :D
This is me after 7.5 hours (with some household chores in between!):
Nice and matte still, although the coverage faded a little. Hello pink cheeks once again! :D
All in all methinks that this is an amazing product at a really affordable price. Maybelline Malaysia, if you're reading this, please bring it in already - i'm sure it'll sell like hot cakes! :D
