The concept of BB cushion is very new to me. Actually, I always wanted to try a BB cushion but they were not available in India. But recently, our favorite brand Maybelline finally launched its 1st BB cushion foundation in India. I am so happy and super excited that I got to try this new product. Read on to know more about this Maybelline Super BB Cushion.

My Experience with Maybelline Super BB Cushion SPF 29/PA+++ :
This BB cushion comes in a round creamy white container with a big beige lid. It also has a shiny beige outer paper box that contains all the information about the product. Inside this round box, it has a big nice mirror which I really like. This packaging is a very nice and compact one. It has a small round sponge puff to dap the product on the face. Then, it has a second lid cum puff tray cover. It is a very classy and perfect packaging to carry.
Usage and Applicator:
The sponge applicator works pretty well to blend my makeup smoothly on the face. It is smooth, soft and dense enough. It picks up the right amount of the product and doesn’t suck a lot of makeup. Hence, it provides an even and smooth effect on the skin with some dabbing process. It takes a little time to blend the product but it is quite easy to work with this sponge. It provides a nice airbrush finish.
Maybelline only offers two shades and it is quite difficult to find the perfect match for the Indian skin tone. I have the shade 03 Natural (dark one) and it is a natural warm beige shade. Initially, it looks a little light for my skin tone. But thankfully, it adjusts to my skin tone perfectly by the time I complete my makeup. I can say that it is a good match for my skin tone but there is no shade for dusky beauties.
Texture and Quality:
This BB cushion looks like a soft sponge that has some tiny holes in it. It contains some liquid makeup which easily comes out with the little press. This BB cream has a medium thin texture that blends smoothly and provides a flawless finish on the skin. It doesn’t look patchy or dry on the skin.
It has the right amount of moisture that keeps the skin fresh and soft throughout the day. It looks even and natural on my oily face. Also, layering doesn’t make it look heavy or patchy. I have never used any other BB cushion, so I can’t compare it with other brands. But I really love this lightweight, smooth formula as it never feels sticky or oily. It just looks so perfect on my skin with its seamless finish.
It is better than our usual BB creams which can’t perform well. This one works nicely and quite uniquely. This BB cream has a nice dewy finish that adds a nice glow to the skin. There is no white cast and overpowering finish. It just looks like my second skin. It doesn’t clog my pores yet makes them less visible. My skin appears smooth and healthy. It also has SPF 29 P+++ which protects my skin from the sun.
This BB cushion provides good coverage. It offers good medium coverage that nicely hides imperfections on my face, like uneven skin tone, dark circles and light spots. Basically, I don’t have major imperfection on my skin, but this cushion works so well to make my skin look even and fresh. It decently hides my light dark circles as well as redness. But it can’t hide dark pimple spots or heavy dark circles. Hence, you need to follow up with a concealer for that perfect coverage. But it is quite good for daily use. I can also build up the coverage by layering it up. I always prefer natural coverage, so this is a perfect product for me. It acts as a good base makeup and looks very nice by the time I am done with my full makeup.
It stays on my skin for around 5-6 hours without any oxidisation. But it can’t control facial oil. As I have a super oily skin, my T-zone becomes oily after 3 hours. And, my whole face starts to look shiny after 5 hours. I need to fix it with a compact powder to make it last long. Still, it is very good for dry skin as well as perfect for this winter season. I am not sure how it will perform during summers on my skin. But right now, in this dry season, I love this product. It keeps my skin moisturised and soft. It generally doesn’t settle into the fine lines and does not crease at all.
I am super happy with this new product as it works very well to provides a natural-looking fresh and smooth skin. I have become totally obsessed with it now. I can use it for day as well as night makeup. I really love the finish and natural effect it provides to my skin. It is a little pricey and the shade range is limited as well. Otherwise, it is a great product that works well. Here in these images, I have created a fresh day makeup look without any concealer and a night heavy makeup look. I have also created a half face BB cushion and half bare face image where you can see the actual coverage.

Yes to both. Wish the refill cases were available in India so that I would not have to spend as much money again. You must also give this BB cushion a try but make sure you check out the shades at the counter.
