Maybelline 8-in-1 B.B. Cream

I’ll get right to it. This product does nothing for me. I’d still go for my TFS makeup base and liquid foundation.

I don’t get sufficient coverage with this B.B. cream. This is the first BB cream that I’ve tried and I was disappointed. If I put too much, I look too white. If I put just enough, it’s as if I just applied powder.

I’ve been using this almost everyday for a month now and I can’t wait to finish it up so that I can go back to TFS.

The first time I used this, I developed a couple of rashes. My skin eventually got used to it. The consistency is too thin/watery for me. Are all BB creams like that? It also doesn’t help that it dries up fast so I have to spread and blend fast. I can’t use a sponge to apply this because the product just ends up in an ugly mess on my face. What I do is I apply a small amount on a sponge then dot it around my face then use a foundation brush to spread and blend.

It looks the same on my face. It disappears after a while then I get oily. I can’t vouch for the other benefits that this BB cream promises because after a month of usage, I didn’t notice any difference.

I  have been quite apprehensive to purchase this for a while. Good thing it was on sale at Php250 when I finally decided to try it. I think it’s still Php250 at Watsons and Beauty by SM.

Have you tried the Maybelline BB Cream? Did it do wonders for you? Share!


  1. Works fine as a make up base for me:) Although it did break me out at first. Hehe.

  2. i like this since it doesn't give me that cakey look. however, it seems to be too light for my skin tone :)

  3. @Meedge lucky you!

    @Anonymous I think this line of BB Creams "specifically made for Asians" are really for our fairer counterparts, don't you think?
