Too thin consistency... yellow undertones that turn darker after they are on.
I was looking forward to using this, as I had heard many good things about it, and I love and trust Maybelline, so I gave it a try.
The packaging is small but cute, and the amount of product was worth it for the price ($8)
Thing is though, the product itself is not worth the money. I have acne prone skin so I was a little hesitant to try this, and booooy do I hate it. After one use as a primer under my foundation, I noticed about 16 hours later my skin already had about 4 new breakouts.
Not only did it break me out, but it does absolutely nothing for my skin, I almost felt as if it had dried it out even more, and it smells weird.
Like I said, I love Maybelline, but the BB cream sucks balls.
This review is for the Light/Medium Sheer Tint-
I've really liked some of Maybelline's liquid foundations in the past so, when they came out with a BB Cream (with SPF 30!), I decided that I had to give it a try.
I am very diligent about wearing sunscreen on my face every day, and I love that the Maybelline BB Cream has an SPF of 30 (double that of the Garnier BB Cream that I had already been using.)
Unfortunately this BB Cream is just way too sheer for me. I applied one layer, and really didn't notice any difference in the redness or the couple of dark spots that I have on my face. I then applied a second layer, and still barely noticed anything. It's just too sheer for my needs, but for someone who likes a real "no makeup" look, it might be just the thing for them.
Did not find it effective to reduce pigmentation. Switched to Palmer's, Eventone, BB Cream, Cocoa Butter Formula, Fair/Light, SPF 15, 1 fl oz bought from iHerb (iherb dot com) for $9.25. Very happy with Palmer’s which is also loaded with cocoa butter (which smoothes marks and scars, vitamin C (which naturally brightens skin), etc. If you are new to iHerb (iherb dot com), you can use Coupon Code ------JTV564 at checkout and get $10 or $5 OFF your first order.

When I originally bought this, I had extremely low expectations. This product completely took me off guard. I was reading up on makeup & skincare blogs and someone mentioned it, so when I saw it in store, it caught my eye and i thought i would test it out. Addmittedly, this is only the 2nd bb cream I have ever tried, but when you find something amazing, why keep searching? I usually use very high end products like Armani, Lancome, Dior, etc... but this little gem coupled with a tiny bit of concealer, gives me a much better finish than any other light foundation I have tried. I have sensitive, dry, fair skin and i have not had any breakouts or flaky skin from this product. Also, being fair skinned, mac nc15, I struggle to find products that are a nice match for my skin. I bought this product in "fair" and it matches beautifully. At first I was skeptical because the colour looked a bit orange when you squeeze it out of the tube, but somehow it blends seamlessly. Love love love this product. Would definitely buy again and definitely recommend. Perfect for traveling as well. continued >>
I bought this product on a bit of a whim but am so glad I have! The texture is very light and feels quite thin so is easily applied onto the skin, both with fingers and a brush. The colour range is fairly limited in my local drugstore however I found that the lightest colour "light" blends seamlessly into my skin and even on days where I seem particularly pale it doesn't seem visible in daylight. The price is brilliant for the effect that it gives to my skin for it leaves it dewy and fresh just like the product promises and is much better then some higher priced products. The coverage is very light but it is brilliant for evening out my skin tone and covering any redness however I tend to still use my normal concealer as well to give a flawless finish.
Overall I have to say that I am very impressed with this product and will definitely be repurchasing especially with the summer weather on the horizon. The dewy wash of colour it gives is a refreshing change to many other drugstore products I've tried and for £8 or so it's definitely worth a try!
When I first got this product and used it, I was pretty happy with it. But as I used my Asian BB creams, I really saw the gap between the two. It's a nice product, just not what I would consider a BB cream compared to the Asian ones. But the product is almost gel-like but it is still pretty liquidy. The packaging is cute. The product itself has a weird scent but you really can't smell it after it is blended into your skin. I probably won't repurchase this again and just stay with my Lioele BB creams.
Use this product as a tinted moisturizer under my foundation and works really well! Worn alone does not cover too much but does even out skin tone a little bit.. Would not be good for oily skin but if you have dry skin works awesome
This BB cream is not my BB cream, it is what I use daily as more of a tinted moisturizer and I love it. It covers just enough but not so much that it looks unnatural. At first I thought it would be gone in a week because of how small the packaging is. However, I have had at least 5 months of use from this product and it is still not totally finished. It does not leak and it is pretty small which makes it good from travel which is a huge part of my life.
broke me out, oxidized and the coverage was minimal. Also, talk about using a thesaurus when they list all the "benefits" from this....
I've tried the korean bb creams and it's totally different. Korean bb creams use natural ingredients to actually DO something to benefit your skin and they're about the same price. The only bad part of them is waiting for them to arrive.
ANYWAY, this didn't work one bit on me and i regret buying it. Did I mention the amount of product you get is horrible? Get a tinted moisturizer and save yourself the money. Not to mention that it gets on EVERYTHING and it makes you suuuuper oily.
