Maybelline Clearglow Shine Free BB Stick Fawn* – Rs 250, available at medplusbeauty Maybelline Clearglow Shine Free BB cream stick* comes in 2 shades Radiance & Fawn. Radiance will suit very fair skin tone where Fawn would suit medium skintones.
It comes in stick form. Texture of BB cream stick is smooth and feels almost powdery upon application. Formula is light weight and non greasy. I am NC 44 in MAC and fawn suits me well. I don’t have prominent dark circles and many blemishes, but whatever blemish or discoloration is there, Maybelline BB cream stick covers it pretty well.
I have used it under my eyes, and to my surprise it didn’t crease. Staying power is good and it provides the coverage for over 7 hours.
Only downside I see is that it clings and highlights dry patches. I was expecting it to provide some moisture but dry skin girls need heavy duty moisturizer underneath. It blends in to skin quickly, I use my fingertips to blend it. It has Spf 21 and PA +++ so you can do without layering sunscreen underneath. Surprisingly it doesn’t make me white ghost in flash photography.
It does give a glowy finish which I like. One doesn’t need to apply powder over it. It provides medium coverage but You can layer it up on your blemishes to cover them.
That’s how it looks on me . I might look drab because of fever and cold 🙁 I haven’t used anything else on my face and you can see how different I look in after pic.
What I liked
- Travel friendly and user friendly packaging.
- Provides medium coverage.
- Has SPF so one can skip sunscreen
- Formula is easy to blend and doesn’t crease.
- Stays on for 7+ hours
What can be improved
- Clinging on to dry patches. It highlights all the dry areas of my face.
- More shades to choose from. All of us cannot work with either or the shades.
A great budget product, excellent of working women or college going girls since it provides good coverage + SPF protection. Formula is easy to blend and doesn’t feel greasy or look shiny. It covers under – eye circles and blemishes to an extend and stays on for good 7+ hours (Depending on the weather conditions as it might melt soon during summers). However only two shades to chose from is one of biggest drawbacks.
