Maybelline's BB Stick

Sunday, July 15, 2012
Joining Maybelline's very extensive range of family of BB creams is their latest release - the BB Stick, and this has got to be my favourite yet of all the existing products. Read on and you'll know why.

I've always been a big fan of Maybelline's BB family, and before the BB stick, my up-to-date favourite has been their BB White because of the high SPF and the colour of the cream. I didn't review it on my blog, but that's definitely a good grab if you're looking for a natural-looking BB cream for daily use with high SPF. I shall not digress, lets move onto the BB stick.
I was sent a couple of the BB sticks in 01 Fresh and 03 Radiance to try out and I'm really loving it! Besides the fact that it makes application, faster, smoother, and fuss-free, the BB stick also gives a matte and powdery finish which I'm totally digging, especially on warmer days. Despite being matte, the BB actually gives a very smooth and natural-looking finish. My only concern is that the stick doesn't last as long as I would like it to, but reapplication is superbly easy.

Top swatch is initial swatch, bottom is after blending.
The balm blends into the skin seamlessly (unless you get the wrong shade) and I would prefer to use my fingers rather than tools to aid in the process of blending simply because the warmth of your fingertips will help make the balm easier to blend. The stick gives medium coverage, and coverage is buildable to say about 70ish%, which is pretty decent. I use this all over and for darker marks, i go over with my concealer. The BB stick looks and feel light on the skin, as if it's barely there. My only concern is that since this stick has a drier formula, it might not suit girls with dry skin as well as those with oily/combination skin. I will definitely suggest girls with dry skin to go for their BB creams instead of this BB stick.

Maybelline's BB Stick retails for $17.90 (If I'm not wrong) and is available at Watsons and Guardian.


  1. THe radiance one looks like it would
    be a match for my skin

  2. I see alot of american BB creams now, but I'm super iffy about buying any of them lol

  3. @행복해요?
    I will generally prefer buying ones that are suited for Asian skin types. There are some brands like Maybelline that do different formulation for different countries.
