|Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream. £7.99.|
The shade 'Light' is ever so slightly too dark for me but it's not hugely noticeable and nothing a bit of blending doesn't fix, for reference I'm an NC15 in MAC. It also doesn't look orange in tone & it's quite a nice match for my warm complexion. In terms of coverage it's definitely very sheer, just enough to even out my skin tone but not enough to allow me to skip concealer around my nose and on the redness on my cheeks. The oil free formula leaves a nice glowy look to the skin but it's not greasy and doesn't leave you feeling oily. I'm not sure how well this would work on super oily skin, I imagine you would need a good setting powder but it doesn't slip at all on my normal/dry skin. I don't find it moisturising enough to skip moisturiser before hand and even though there is an SPF of 30 I use a dedicated SPF underneath as well. With a good moisturiser on underneath I don't find it accentuates dry patches at all.
It blends really well into the skin and although the bottle looks really tiny, a little goes a long way, which is nice. It's not overly scented and just feels really comfortable to wear, it's in no way heavy and lasts well on my skin for around 6 to 7 hours without touching it up throughout the day at all. It's fast become one of my summer staples because it's one of those products you really don't have to think about or spend too much time applying in the mornings. I usually blend with my ELF Studio Powder brush but it works equally as well with fingers as well.
