Even as someone who’s obssessed with makeup, I’m no stranger to falling into makeup routine patterns. In most cases such as with face bases, I often stick to the saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. My ultimate favorite choice of makeup base is liquid foundation which is why I have been away from the world of BB creams for quite a while now. Fortunately, I was able to receive one of the newest BB creams out in the market today to take me out of my boring makeup routine habits.
Maybelline Super BB Cream is the brand’s latest and newly improved BB cream. It’s so much more different from it’s old counterpart because of three things: SPF 50 PA++, high coverage, and Mineral Guard Filter. Aside from that, it also promises to hide imperfections and pores, last all day, brighten, smoothen and even out your skin tone. The gorgeous new rose gold packaging is a major plus for me too!
3Cs: Color, Consistency, Coverage
The BB cream comes in two shades: 01 Light and 02 Medium. The lack of shade options when it comes to BB creams is normally my biggest qualm with BB creams. But BB creams are actually designed to oxidize once applied on the skin in order for it to match one’s skin tone. As for my case, I used the shade 02 Medium which has hints of cool undertones and I was pleasantly surprised that it was able to match my skin tone quite well.
The consistency is right between the runny and thick spectrums. I find that it has medium coverage which makes it easy to spread and blend into the skin. It had decent coverage, but I personally still need concealer to correct the redness on my face and dark undereyes. It lasted around 6-7 hours on me before fading on a very busy day and a good 8+ hours on a laxed day.
I think girls who hate having to apply legit makeup on their faces aka foundation and prefer to go for the subtle look will absolutely love the Maybelline Super BB Cream.
Overall, this is the perfect BB cream for girls who are always on-the-go because of its Mineral Guard filter which helps shield away pollution from the skin. The SPF 50++ is a huge huge bonus for girls like me who are conscious about getting sun spots and freckles. Aside from these two fabulous features, it wears and blends well into the skin and comes with the very affordable price tag of P399 a pop.
