I admit, the last time I got obsessed with trying out all the different BB Creams and CC Creams was YEARS ago. BB Creams are the best friend of any girl on the go who wants to have it all. The original function of a BB Cream is to provide us girls enough coverage to conceal our imperfections while protecting our skin from the sun with its high SPF. Now, Maybelline gives us a BB Cream just for us Filipinas who’re exposed to pollution and environmental hazards!

SWATCHED ON HAND
It has a very buildable sheer to medium coverage. It has a nice slip and is gave me ample time to blend on my skin before setting.
How to Use
I just dot on my forehead, cheeks, and chin and spread outwards. Apply the most product on the center of your face and then blend outwards as this will give you the most natural flawless looking finish.
No Makeup vs With Maybelline Super BB Cream
Packaging – It comes in a metal-finish pink squeeze twist tube. It is small enough to carry around in your purse.
Staying Power – One of the best qualities of this product. It really lasts all day. I applied mine 8 in the morning and at 9 pm, it still looks freshly applied. It also has excellent oil control but doesn’t make your skin look dry.
Coverage – Sheer to Medium. It was able to hide dark circles and some of the lighter face marks.
Shade/Finish – It has good oil control properties but has a lit-within finish.
Texture – It’s thicker than your average tinted moisturizer. It has a nice slip, but doesn’t drip off your fingers when getting the product.
Scent – I barely noticed any fragrance
Will I re-purchase? YES
Final Thoughts – Be advised that because of the high SPF, it leaves a white cast when photographed with flash. This is what I call a “daytime” “school days” makeup. While I didn’t notice any visible effects in terms of the anti-pollution thingie (I mean, how can you really tell) it’s a wonderful BB cream to use on a daily basis. It didn’t break me out. It’s easy to apply when you’re on the go and it’s affordable! With
