Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream | REVIEW

I recently purchased this Maybelline BB Cream at Target last weekend after all the good things I had heard about it, whether in YouTube videos, blogposts, or articles. I thought I should give it a try because apparently it is good for school, and to get some coverage that doesn’t feel heavy like foundation. I have used it a few times and found to like it quite a bit, even though there are a few problem areas. 
As you can see, even though I have to apologize for the not so good quality of these pictures, the BB cream shows some improvement with minor blemishes, lightens dark circles a little bit, fills in the pores, and evens out the skin tone, and I do like that. I do not get a full coverage, although, and it is a little drying and will come off after a few hours, and since I am at school I really don’t have time to go to the bathroom and reapply my makeup. 

I do have to touch up with a concealer on more major blemishes and dark circles, and since I’m so fair, the lightest shade is a tad bit too dark so I have to blend it out a little bit, which I shouldn’t feel I should have to do considering you’re just supposed to put it on with your fingers. 

I do, however, like the SPF in it, although it is drying and the finished look is a little bit too dewy to go without powder. So I recommend if you have average to drier skin that you use a moisturizer, but if your skin is oily I don’t recommend a moisturizer. 

Do I think this product is worth the hype? I think so, as long as you’re not looking for a full coverage solution. In that case, there are many different foundations out there that you can give a try. But this product gives you a light to medium coverage, because you can build the coverage a little bit. 

·         Covers minor blemishes and lightens dark circles
·         Evens skin tone
·         Reduces the appearance of pores
·         Easy to apply
·         Little bit goes a long way

·         Only lasts a few hours
·         Drying for dry skin
·         Doesn’t give a full coverage
·         Dewy finish is a little bit too shiny

Those cons are easy to overcome, gladly, just use a finishing powder, reapply, and use a moisturizer and concealer. I do recommend this product and would give an 8.5/10 rating. 

Have a good weekend! Make sure to check out my last post if you haven’t already! Also, I'm posting my second YouTube video in a little bit so please make sure to follow my Twitter to know when I posted it!

  1. I was thinking of purchasing this, still looks ok for me :)

    1. It's a great product, I think you should try it!

  2. I've not tried this before but my skin is perhaps too dry for it. I do like using BB or CC creams on lighter makeup days though :)

    1. I always like using BB Creams on days where I'm feeling lazy in my makeup routine (aka everyday) but I think as long as you use a moisturizer it should be fine! :)

  8. Great review, I'm always on the lookout for new BB creams to try as whilst I like a fuller coverage, sometimes it's nice to bring things back to basics and go for a more natural, effortless look. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I loved your pros and cons - so helpful :)
