The Maybelline BB Cream is Here
On My Hand!!!!
Call it hype-call it intense curiosity or call it a simple need for a Balm for Blemish -The Maybelline BB cream has got us waiting with bated breath for the last few weeks ever since we heard it coming! The last thing that sparked such intense interest among people was perhaps the new Bachchan Baby!!! ( Thats also BB :D)
As soon as I spotted it today in Shoppers Stop- I made a funny rush to the counter and yelled-BB CREAMMMMM!!!!!
I heard that the shipment arrived only today!
This is what I found out about the Maybelline BB cream over the Internet:
I am so sorry-my cam dint find a better time to bomb-I promise I will be posting better pics later!
Price: 199 INR
Price: 199 INR
This is what is written on the back of the pack:
Infused with a good for you ingredients-talc, fairness complex moistiuriser and skin brightening minerals to 8 skin-transforming benefits.
There are three shades available-1) Nude 2) Natural 3) Radiance
The nude is palest of all. Natural is the one I got. Radiance is cooler toned.
I really need to test it thoroughly before I say anything conclusive about it. Even the SA at the shoppers stop told me with a smile-" Do tell us how it is after you use-its very recently launched product". The first impression was kinda surprising-as the BB of this cream actially stands for Brightness Benefit-rather than Blemish Balm. I dont know whether the name "blemish balm" has some copy right issues that the Maybelline BB cream acronym actually has the full form: Brightness Benefit! I am confused here-did Maybelline use the word BB cream to create the hype and then sell something entirely different that the real BB creams?? Dunno!!!
I find the container to be very small-its overall length is about 3.5 inches and the product amount is only 18ml. It is made in China. It says no oil, no pore clogging and suitable for sensitive skin. Whether it remains true to its claims-I needa check out.
Initially, I find it as a beige colored liquid with the consitency of a moisturizing lotion. I used it on the back of my palm and spread it. It settled down as a tinted moisturiser-with some white cast which was visible. I am not sure whether this cast is meant for concealing or creating the brightening effect. This I think is supposed to be used as a base and topped with a foundation.That phase is yet to be tested- that how this BB cream accentuates the effect of foundation-whether it makes it stay longer-and whether the claim of 8rounds of benefit is actually true.
This is the final effect!
I tried to use it over some pimple marks to see whether it conceals the mark -I just found a whitish cast over them-not much of concealing effect was seen -but some brightness was definitely observed!!!
Will post more details once I use it for a whole day out with foundation!
BTW I had this today!
