Workaholic Favourites: Maybelline Clear Glow Bright Benefit Cream!

                  Hello dolls! As promised, I am going to review my work go-to makeup favourites and do some looks soon too. As you know, I started working and luckily (or unluckily) my workplace always has A.C. Unlucky, because my skin doesn't know whether to become oily or flaky. Lucky, because my skin can use dewy bases! So, I have this huge hoard of foundations as I love foundations and I need something mattifying 24/7. As I joined work, I noticed how everything just looked so cakey and dry on my skin. That is the time I thought of trying and opting for something more hydrating and lighter for everyday wear. I wanted to buy the Maybelline Clear Glow BB Stick as I loved it previously but I was so upset to find out that.... IT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED! Is it just me or do the best products just get discontinued? :( Anyways, I went for this one because of the price and it looked like a decent product too! So dolls..... presenting you, the Maybelline Clear Glow BB Cream! 





I love the product's packaging. It's so cute! Also, the size is so perfect to fit into my makeup pouch (which is blue as well :P). What I like about the tube is that, you can really control the amount of product you dispense. 

The texture? Smooth, creamy and light. Very easy to work with!




The shade I have is 02 Radiance. It is not the exact bang on shade as it is more on the peachier side. However, it doesn't really matter as it adjusts pretty well on the skin and also because it does not have much coverage. 

The product takes a little time to set. When it does set, it sets into this beautiful my skin but better product. It feels very lightweight and has this beautiful sheen which makes your skin look really nice and healthy. Also, my pores are not that noticeable and my skin looks smoother and redness is minimised. It is not the type of product to conceal any marks so you definitely do need a concealer. It is a light to medium coverage BB cream, depending on your skin. 

There is but one slight problem. Oil control. This is not going to be a product for the humid, sweaty summers. When I am travelling to my work place, I do have to step out in the heat and I do feel like the product cannot handle heat very well. Right now, the weather seems all right so it's okay but I'm 100% sure that this is not for oily skin in summer. Also, you have to set it with powder if your skin is combination/oily. Oh, because it does not control oil well, don't let it mislead you to think that dry patches would be invisible! DO moisturise using something oil-free!

I noticed that I blot twice a day with blotting sheets (even after setting with powder). I thought my BB cream just slid off my skin by the end of the day.To my surprise, it was still very much there. I had it on for 10 hours! (9am to 7pm). Imagine! 

Now, I find myself reaching out for it most of the times and I can see myself finishing this tube up soon! I RECOMMEND! <3

Btw girls, which is your favourite BB cream? Could someone please confirm if the BB stick is REALLY DISCONTINUED? :( 

Much Love,
Emmy <3.
