I’ve been looking for a tinted moisturizer or BB cream that is lightweight and fast to apply. On the mornings where I teach my class, I don’t spend a lot of time on my makeup whatsoever. I usually throw on a cream eyeshadow, mascara, brow pencil, and go. I wanted to find something for minimal makeup days that was lighter than a foundation, but still gave my skin a little something extra.
I decided to give the Maybelline Dream Pure BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Clearing Perfector a try after hearing good things about it. I’ve used the original BB cream from Maybelline and like it, but wanted something a little less dewy. This fits the bill!
I got the shade Light/Medium and it’s a perfect fit for me. I love how it applies, and it has a more matte finish rather than dewy. I’m not in it for the skin clearing properties, so I can’t vouch for that, but there are many positive attributes to this BB cream.
- Doesn’t dry out my skin
- Smooth/easy to apply
If you are a full-coverage, or even medium coverage person, you will probably not like this, but if you want something sheer that gives a little bit of “oomph” to your skin, this is worth a try.
Overall, this has been the perfect product for me on early mornings, weekends, and I’m also taking it on an upcoming vacation. 🙂
