So I was given Maybelline’s BB cream the other day when i attended their focus group.
Both are Maybelline’s Clear Smooth Mineral BB cream; the first tube is the older packaging while the second tube is the newer packaging.
I like the newer packaging as the green is more refreshing and looks cleaner. Isn’t it? Well, there were also a couple who said that the older packaging looks more professional and look atas.
Oh well, in any case, these BB creams prove to give 8 benefits:
-more even tone
It seems like the newer version has colour selection, which is an improvement from the older version.
Here’s a swatch of the BB cream:
Apparently, the older version has a much lighter colour than the newer version’s Natural. Therefore, the older version’s colour suits my skintone better. But imo, it is also abit greyish on my skin. Many girls tested it out on their skin and find that the Newer version suits them better. Probably, in the sunny Singapore, most girls have natural skintone that suits the newer version better.
And it also seems like the newer version is slightly thicker and has more coverage than the older version.
Both are not sticky and is very light-weight. Great for daily use.
Will I recommend? Yes, natural enough for daily use. No if you really need coverage
However, I’d suggest it to girls who have neither tan nor fair complexion; skin colour that’s average suits the best imo.
