|Maybelline Super BB Cream (02-Medium) Review|
Say hello to a new BB Cream in town! Maybelline’s Super BB Cream is here! I am not 100% sure if this is a replacement to their current BB cream, or another one in the basket, but I’m sure a lot of you guys will want to welcome this product to your lives!

It’s a typical sized tube. I know it’s so hard to describe, but it’s palm sized (?). Am I even making sense?

This one is 30mL, which I am so happy about because it just means I can take this with me on trips that involve the airport. It’s made in China, but it’s not surprising to me because the last time I saw a Maybelline product not made in China was over ten years ago.

Coverage wise, the first test I put it to was the ‘cover imperfections’ part. My cat Sandy had just scratched me with her fangs and so I had a little gash on my hand. I thought I’d see what the product can do for it. The BB cream is beside the gash for reference purposes.

This is how it looks like after I apply the BB cream. The gash still is visible, but it’s much less obvious than it were prior to the application. You can still see the skin, but you have it a little bit covered. I wouldn’t necessarily count this against the product since the gash is red and I’m guessing that this is an Asian formulation meant to deal with yellow over red tones.
My takeaway, actually, from this experiment, is that it’s waterproof, or water resistant at the least (hoooraaay). I washed this off with soap and water after these shots were taken but after washing my hands three times I think I got just about 30% off. And with an SPF 50 rating, this is the perfect thing to use for the beach this summer!

It’s not that oily and runny of a formula which is why I am amused that for the first time in my life, my standard BB cream goop (yes I kid you not in my head there is a standard for how big BB cream and foundation goops should be) was not enough to put dots on my nose. I normally dot it first on the cheeks, the chin, the forehead, and then the nose.
It was not in the promises, but I especially liked how easy it was to blend. It’s very light and sticks to the skin very quickly, which is why I didn’t have any issues with blending it. I also didn’t have to tug as much because it spread really quickly, stuck on very quickly, and blended in very well.
I’d say that the coverage is fairly good. This is not a 100% opaque kind of coverage, but I feel that for most occasions, people, and usages, this is already adequate. Texture wise, it really didn’t hide my pores even after I gave it time, but I’m happy that from afar it made my skin have a dewy and glowing look, so I think it did smoothen the skin somehow. I also do agree to the brightening part as it looked really soft and played out very well with my studio lights. As for the sun protection and the pollution protection, I have yet to hone my blogging skills to measure how much sunlight and dust particles this product is saving me from XDDD.

They even got the overlord of calligraphy (just @inkscribbler, no biggie hahaha) to write my name on a notebook! With the right spelling! You da man Maybelline!
And it also came with a lot of cutie pie stickers which I am so excited to stick on all sorts of surfaces.
