Hello there! I recently did a first impression review on this Maybelline Super BB Cream on my channel so now I will be sharing with you my final thoughts on this!
It is the first high coverage BB from Maybelline. I super agree with this one with just a small amount of the cream you get medium coverage which can hide most of my imperfections on the skin. It has SPF 50/PA ++++ and a mineral guard filter to protect the skin from pollutants and dirt.
The consistency is borderline thick but blends easily when applied. Oh and it comes in 2 shades only, NATURAL, which I believe is the lighter one and MEDIUM the darker one.
The shade MEDIUM has a yellow undertone but I find it too light on my complexion. I will explain it further below.
I am really impressed with the coverage it gives. Immediately concealed my (minor) blemishes, evened out my skin tone and sets to a matte finish which I LOVE. However, it can emphasize dry, flaking skin so be mindful of that. A little moisturizer can help. It feels absolutely amazing on the skin very light and not tacky at all.
On artificial lighting and just after application, it looked too light for my skin almost ghostly but trust me it tones down after a few hours. On natural lighting it looked okay though, actually it looked really good. However, since it has SPF 50 it gives off a white cast on flash photography.
With that in mind, I believe this BB cream is definitely for daytime use. NEVER use this when you know you will take photos with flash.
After 3-4 hours, some of my blemishes started to show BUT the oil control is superb! I was expecting to blot na and I did but I only managed to get a little amount of oil. By far, of all the BB creams I have tried this one has the BEST oil control plus it did not feel sticky on my face even if I sweat a little bit.
After 8 hours, it did tone down. I noticed some fading on my forehead but overall it still looked pretty good and it feels very comfortable on my skin.
