Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Cream

Blemish Balm or Blemish Base which known as BB Cream, is an all-in-one cosmetic product to replaces layering steps of basic make-up like sunblock, make-up base, foundation and powder. In my personal view, BB cream's texture is lighter compare with foundations that tend to be too heavy on Asians skin especially tropical country likes Malaysia. In a meanwhile, BB cream is easy to blend and save times.

I do not like to use when BB cream has just launched in market, for reason it's turned grayish and itchy (lot's of mineral oil) after applying it. But now BB cream is my go go first since most of skincare or cosmetic company have changes the formula and I found my first favorite BB cream.

And this new BB cream will be in my favorite list starting now!!

What I'm holding?

The texture

The texture is not too thick but it's not light as well, consider as in medium yet it does have a great coverage on blemish scars and dark circle (depends on condition). It not sticky and easy to blend in face. The oil control is quite okay too as my T-zone (oily part) get oily after 4 to 6 hours applied (depends on whether).

What problems I have?
Due many of my readers envy with my flawless skin, this is the real skin I have (no filter, no ps) in real.
I did not say I have bad skin but I do have common problems like blemish scars, pores and blackheads even sometime pimples visit me as well.

A large picture for you to see my skin. Did you see the holes? Yes, the pores!!
Very welcome you click the picture for full size preview.

This is the result after I am apply Maybelline BB Cream. 
It's turn brighter, has great a coverage on my face and my dark circle (light) and doesn't clogged my pores.
It doesn't turn grayish as well and look super natural on my face. 

Again very welcome you click the picture for full size preview.
A cheating skill to archive a flawless skin I do. Guys don't be fool by me, it's cosmetic magic.

*ps : Perhaps the lighting problem so when I over contrasted the picture, the effect turns different.
I think there's a big different shows on this picture, the problems are less to be seen and brighter.

My hand's skin tone is darker compare with my face. 
This is the result when I applied on my yellow hand. 
Big different huh? It's not that big different if I am apply on my face.

This is how I apply my bb cream or foundation. I do not like to use foundation brush yet I felt like I am painting on my face and feeling greasy after applying. 

This is my best method that I found it really work and stay well on my face. This method (wet the beauty sponge and using 'dapping method') give me the most natural look without looking cakey. Perhaps you can try too?

Another selca of me with Maybelline BB Cream. 
Nothing else just think this picture should be share out hahahahahahaha.....

Question that girl probably wondering. Does it clog pores?
Well actually it depends on how you remove or clean your face. What I do was remove with makeup remover first (BB cream & sunblock) or wash it twice. By the way, Maybelline is formulated with non-pore clogging formula.

End this post with my chubby face. Thinking of going to do chin filler and slimming Botox on my face. 
I really hate my face so chubby can die. 
Btw, did you noticed the text printing on my shirt? Yes!! My favorite home wear because this piece is too big for me, 'Blogging just got better'. :D
