Maybelline Super BB Cushion Review, Swatch & FOTD-
Among a host of new launches which I got from Maybelline I was actually the most excited about this little baby- the first cushion base product launched here by a popular drugstore brand <3 The entire blogosphere has been buzzing with cushion foundations & BB cream for sooo long and finally we have our own *_* Read on to know more!

My take on the Maybelline Super BB Cushion-
Firstly the packaging! Can I get a round of applause please? The perfect sleek compact with 2 compartments– the 1st one with a big mirror & soft sponge & the next with the cushion saturated with our BB cream/lotion 🙂 Easy to use, carry & store *_*
The texture is a dream come true! Super light, very very easy to apply & blend into skin & it just vanishes into skin- literally! It renders a smooth finish without feeling greasy/heavy at all & makes you forget that you have put on something *_*
The BB product provides a sheer-medium natural glowy finish depending on how & how much you apply! The provided sponge is not my favorite but it does provide better coverage than fingers! I do not have much pigmentation or marks on my skin so I love a sheer finish & it makes skin look smooth, glowing & healthy <3 Since my skin has become dry now, I don’t feel the need to touch it up with a compact but for ladies with oilier skin or living in humid places, it would be a good idea to set the T-zone with powder.
The place where Maybelline slips big time is the shade range 😐 This BB cushion comes in 2 shades only- Light & Natural. I always wear the lightest or 2nd lightest shades in Indian drugstore brands so I picked up Light for me & that seems a tad paler! Since it is sheer & has great blending power, it looks fine but it is so stupid & unfair to launch something in an Asian country without providing any medium-dark shades!
The staying power is great & it stayed intact on me for 6-7 hours till I came back home & removed it. It did not break my skin out or make my skin drier/oilier.
Pros of the Maybelline Super BB Cushion:
1> Lovely sturdy & convenient compact packaging- easy to use, carry & store.
2> Texture is very lightweight, so easy to apply & blend.
3> No heavy/greasy feel.
4> Provides a natural healthy glowing finish to skin <3
5> Sheer-medium coverage 🙂
6> Comes with SPF 29!
Cons of the Maybelline Super BB Cushion:
The shade range is abysmal & medium-dark shades are non-existent 😡
Swatch of the Maybelline Super BB Cushion-
Do I recommend the Maybelline Super BB Cushion?
Maybelline Super BB Cushion is my very first cushion base product & I am having a gala time, patting the cushion to get the product 😛 It gives a lovely even glowing finish to the skin, does not seem dry/oily & is the perfect no-fuss product for spring/summer! Definitely recommended if you match its narrow shade range!
