I was able to find it at my local Walmart for $7.49 which is very affordable. On top of that I used a coupon that I found online that allows you to save $2.00 off ONE Maybelline Face Product, so I ended up paying $5.49 plus tax. Not bad.
Packaging. Similar to their first BB cream, Maybelline Dream Fresh, this BB is 1.0 fluid ounces, and is in a squeezable tube. The packaging is very light, so I could see this as a product someone could easily travel with.
Pigmentation & Coverage. I am tan from the summer, but knowing that I am back in school I picked up light/medium. Light/medium is a tad bit lighter than my current skin tone whenever I first apply it on, but eventually I do feel like this product self adjusts to match my skin tone. Coverage is light to medium. It does a good job at evening out my skin tone and covering most of my acne scars and blemishes. If you are looking for a full coverage BB or foundation, this is not it!
You can see that it blended nicely into my skin. It's hardly noticeable.
Formula & Application. I was afraid that this would appear too matte on my skin since I read reviews stating that it's more for oily/combination skin, but it didn't. It actually left my skin a little dewy and hydrated, and it felt natural and light. I had no issues using my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge with this product. It's not too thick and not too runny.
If you are someone who is looking for a light-weight light/medium coverage BB cream that hydrates your skin and treats your acne, this is it! Some of my emerging pimples that have been appearing on my skin have slowly been diminishing which is a plus! I've been loving this product so far, and I will continue to use it, so long as my skin loves it! :)
Just wearing the BB cream alone!
Wearing a full face of makeup.
Long-lasting so long as you also powder your face too.
