Maybelline BB Stick

Today's review I think will be quite interesting... Well at least for me. I received this product from the beautiful Maybelline NY ladies to try. I am excited because it's THE recently launched Maybelline BB Stick! I have never seen this kind before. Tube, bottle, roll-on, yes have seen but stick? Exciteeed.


Got from Maybelline NY Indonesia website (too lazy to take picture, lol). Cool, huh?





Will it work for me though? Check the captions. shade means I took it under room light (yellow) and flash means with my iPhone flash

Look at the colour of the BB Stick on my skin with flash! I totally hate it. Whites!  I look ashy and too pale!  Two things crossed my mind: Maybe because 1) It has SPF 21, a good thing and 2) This is shade number 03 Radiance, maybe I should have gotten shade 02 Natural.  ;_____; sssoob!

But... coverage is not bad! It smooths my skin and kinda cover the acne scarring and the redness around my nose a little bit.

Like that fact that its coverage is better than The Body Shop's All-in-One BB Cream.  But for colour, I like The Body Shop better ;)  All shades has colour adapting materials. Check my review here

Final words:

I truly and honestly love the idea of a BB Stick! It is sooo versatile. You can use normally as BB Cream, or concealer... Easy to carry around for touch ups and it turns from cream to powder fast! I think the idea is really cool! The cylinder shape is cute and size is just right. Texture is (powderish) solid cream and turn into powder.

The problem with me, is that this product does not suit my very oily skin :( It goes all oily in three hours and worse by the end of the night. (I forgot to take pictures after three hours) but I don't think that it is necessary because Maybelline NY claims that it is 12 hours shine free. I think it also should say that this might apply to certain skin condition (dry, normal or normal to dry).  For me, it isn't working well... Just under six hours and I was a huge oil mine.  And I tested this at night time, no sunshine, less heat and the weather was actually pretty cool after the rain.

Yes, I can actually picture this on someone with dry, normal or normal to dry skin. I think this will come up great. Seriously I do. Because even with my very oily skin, even after all that oiliness, even after all that whites, at the end of the day my skin was actually brighter and not dull at all! That just awesome, my face was not looked boring...

As for the ingredients, I cannot find it on its website. So this might be something that Maybelline NY must consider. Also, more shades please, two are not enough :( They have two available shades 02 Natural and 03 Radiance.

So... those with dry, normal to dry skin, try this! I think you can find this at Guardians and probably dept. store. I'm not sure how much this cost, if I am not mistaken it is waaaay under IDR 100K. VERY AFFORDABLE!! Especially if you're a student! Plus point! (I'm going to confirm the price) .

Oh! and another thing, you need to give credit to Maybelline NY for creating this BB Stick specially for Asian market. Yes, more tailored product please for us in Asia :D
