Maybelline BB Cream

I'm sure many of you have heard about this famous cream. For those of you who haven't, BB in BB cream stands for blemish balm. It's kind of like a tinted moisturizer, but it's used for covering your blemishes, making your skin looks flawless and perfect.

I first heard about BB cream last December. My friend told me that this little thing is booming in Asia. It's the reason of why Korean actresses have flawless skin. Little did I realize that BB cream is also booming in the US.

I was not sure about it, so I didn't want to spend for a product that I haven't really known for sure. I've seen brands like Too Faced and Benefit launched their BB creams several months back. They were pricey for sure. When my friend went back to Indonesia, I asked my mom to buy me Maybelline's BB cream. It claims to be "8-in-1 Skin Transformer: Brightens, Evens, Smoothes, Refines, Clears, Conceals, Moisturizes, Protects skin". It has SPF 26. Self-rated as PA+++. (The more '+' it has, the more UVA protection it provides).

I tried it, and I must say that I like it. It gives you little to medium coverage, but it really smoothes out your skin and disguises your blemishes.

My shade is 01 Fresh. The swatch looks too light for my skin as you can see here, but once I blend it out my skin it just flawlessly blends with my skin tone. My skin looks smoother and more flawless.

It won't cover up pimples or dark circles or anything like that, but it does help to make them less visible and smoothes the surface of your skin.

Have you tried any BB cream? What do you think of it?
