Maybelline BB Cream

Maybelline Fondation Dream Pure BB Cream (light). 

This is the first BB cream I’ve bought, after using a sample in a magazine, I loved how it felt on my skin. 

I suffer from the worst type of skin in my opinion, “combination”. This means I get an oily forehead, and chin, and my t-zone can range from oily some days, to ridiculously dry other days, especially around the sides of my nose.  Most foundations stick and clog up the dry skin making it look like I’ve caked make up on.

Maybelline describes this product as a foundation that’s makes skin appear smoother, more even and hydrated.   It is oil free (helping those of us with oily skin) and has an SPF 15 rating. 

Available in to shades-light or medium, I went for the light as most mediums tend to make me a tad orange! 

I found applying it with my fingers as opposed to a brush or sponge actually gave me better coverage, as I was able to spread it further and into areas sponges and brushes wouldn’t have as great an effect. 

The coverage is immediate. I don’t even have to wear concealer if I was only have small breakouts, (as it is I’m having the mother of all breakouts so concealer is very necessary), and it doesn’t feel, slippery, oily and like it won’t stay for the duration of the day, like some other foundations I’ve tried. 

I’m giving this product a 9.5 out of 10, reason for the missing .5 is because I don’t think it’ll last as long as other foundations I’ve used, and at £6.99 it could be an expensive habit!
