I tend to suffer from a syndrome where every time I promise myself to stay away from buying new make up, I find myself inside a beauty store looking through new stuff. Quite unsurprisingly I was stranded in one such store and ended up buying the all new Maybelline BB stick. I had this product on my mind for quite sometime as I needed something customized for an oily skin like me. Since the first time I’ve applied this, I have been in love with it.
The BB Stick, as Maybelline claims it:
BB or Beauty Benefit is a term given to products with all-in-one qualities in it. It was first introduced as the Beauty Benefit Cream which had the 3 in 1 action of a foundation, moisturizer and a sun-block. The BB stick is a modified version of the BB cream specially designed for people with an oily skin. The BB stick gives the following 8 benefits in one single product:
- Mineral clay formula guarantees 12 hr shine control.
- Contains Salicylic acid to manage combination & oily skin.
- Provides a soft, matte and radiant finish.
- Sweat-resistant and sebum – resistant formula leaves skin fresh all day.
- Hides appearance of pores & imperfection.
- Contains SPF 21/PA+++ that protects skin from sun damage.
- Instantly evens skin tone.
- Provides a power-light feel on skin.
It claims to provide a radiant skin along with a 12hr shine control.
Packaging and Quantity:
It comes in a clear light blue roller stick. The quantity seems enough to last for a month on regular use.
Color on use:
The BB stick comes in two shades: Radiance and Fawn. I opted for fawn and I must say I have never had a product that blended so well.
This BB stick comes at a super affordable price of Rs 250 (a reason I was more excited to buy this).
Too much exposure to the sun made my skin look darker while I was wearing it. However, my skin got back to its normal color the moment I removed the make up.
I would recommend this to anyone with an oily skin. This is a great make up choice at an affordable range and feels very light to the skin. It blends extremely well and gives the skin a healthy glow.
