Overall 8.6/10

I love this product way too much. I have two empty bottles of this and just purchased another. Maybelline face products are my go to in the drugstore price range. Seriously just plain awesome and nothing crazy expensive.

I have gotten one dud from them though so beware of that. When I used the product it was watery and it looked like the ingredients hadn’t fully mixed. This was an easy fix though as Ulta just replaced my product right away with no hassle. I just brought it in to the store and showed the cashier.

Pigmentation 8.5/10

Nothing crazy here. This is, after all, a BB cream. This does however provide a really good skin tone evening. I have very pink toned skin especially on my cheeks (I swear I’m translucent and you’re just seeing all my blood) and this totally evens this out.

Texture 8.5/10

Very creamy.  This stuff feels great on the face if you even feel it at all. Not much of a smell from this and what there is doesn’t smell of sunscreen which is a major plus.

Longevity 9/10

I wear this all the time in hot weather, and cold weather. Humidity and desert office environments and this has lasted through all of them. When it is especially hot I always make sure to spritz with UD All Nighter setting spray over this as it isn’t sweat proof and my face sweats a lot in the heat. Mild heat doesn’t seem to cause it to budge as long as you aren’t rubbing your face a lot.

Application 8/10

I apply this with my clean fingers all over my face (except eye area) and do a very light massage to blend it in.

Packaging 9/10

Tube packaging with cute typography on the front. I like how it looks and it’s functional. It is easy to remove product and to cut this open for the last little bits.
