Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Instant Skin Perfecting BB Cream Review

Hi Sweeties,

I am really glad you liked my last review on Street Wear Mineral Lip Gloss in Mulberry Dip. On Monday, I attended my cousin’s marriage and I did some shopping for the occasion. I bought a new product from Maybelline. The SA told me it is freshly launched in the market and I was quite excited hearing that. I don’t know how much truth was their in the SA’s words, but I always fall prey in their hands. Anyway, I purchased it and I am a happy person now. I am going to review Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Instant Skin Perfecting Cream.  Hope you will like it.

Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Instant Skin Perfecting BB Cream Review

Product Description:

Instant Skin Perfecting Cream. Our instant skin perfecting cream is a perfect blend of 8 mineral ingredients. The unique earth color shade instantly improves and perfects your skin:

BB Cream 1

The ingredients are too many to be mentioned. So, I have clicked up a proper picture and you can read all the mentioned ingredients here.

Ingredients

Rs. 375 for 30 ml.

How To Apply:

To apply after the daily moisturizer. Use before makeup. Take appropriate amount and spread evenly across face.

BB Cream 4

My Experience with Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Instant Skin Perfecting BB Cream:

I am highly impressed with this cream. Actually, this is a moisturizer-based foundation. I found it perfectly well as a makeup base. The texture is smooth and non-chalky. It blends perfectly with the skin.  After the application, I applied makeup for attending my cousin’s marriage and wow, I was amazed. The makeup was intact till I came back home after about 8 to 9 hours. I have some small spots on my nose and this cream covered all the spots amazingly.  This for me is the best feature of this product.

BB Cream 2

It suits all skin types as the product claims.  I also apply it during the day time when I go out for some work, I don’t even use face powder over it. There were no variants of this product in the store, so I bought this one and it suited me well. Since it is winter, I have an issue of dry skin, but due to the moisturizing effect of this cream, my skin felt hydrated and I did not feel any kind of dryness. One needs to be careful enough as too much quantity may make the skin excessively white and chalky (for those with wheatish complexion).

BB Cream 3

The product claims that if used continuously for 8 weeks, it will improve skin’s condition. Well, I am not so sure about it.

Swatches:

Before Blending BB Cream

After Blending BB Cream

Now, summing up the pros and cons:

Pros of Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Instant Skin Perfecting BB Cream:

  • Blends evenly all over the skin.
  • Non-chalky.
  • Best as a makeup base or foundation.
  • Lasting power is impressive.
  • Covers all skin blemishes.
  • No fragrance at all.
  • Suits all skin types.

Cons of Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Instant Skin Perfecting BB Cream:

  • Can be chalky if applied in excess.
  • Although it says it suits all skin types, still a patch test is advised.
  • I don’t have any idea whether it is water resistant or not.
  • Cost is a little high.

Will I Buy Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Instant Skin Perfecting BB Cream Again?

Yes, I shall buy it again as soon it gets over.

IMBB Rating:

4/5.

Take care and keep smiling :)

Ishani December 16, 2012 at 10:47 pm

I don’t have any idea about it !!

Tinkerbell December 16, 2012 at 11:15 pm

hmm..sounds interesting! i have been using their clear glow bb cream which suits me fine…since this one’s moisturizing, i doubt it’ll be helpful for oily skin.
Great review though! thanks for the heads up!

Hello there!

I do hope I am wrong, but you may want to check the authenticity of this tube.
This product is supposed to have 26spf – you’ll see none with spf25 .Google it up.

Also in the images #4 – the ingredient list is startling! copper,zinc,magnesium, sodium and titanium!! Uhhh.. This doesn’t look like a normal ingredient list for a skin cream…
Another thing in the same image is.. suitable for all skin “type” instead of “types”. I wouldn’t expect maybelline to do these grammatical errors.

Again, I do hope this is a misunderstanding – but please do check for your own skin.

The ingredients are all right I guess. They’re supposed to be healthy minerals. But the spf is indeed supposed to be 26 and not 25. Also the typo is disturbing.
