Maybelline Pure Mineral BB Watergel Review

Merry Christmas Eve!~  ^_^ 
Long time no review ay? Being on a makeup band is so hard! >< But i'm back with a review of most recent BB Watergel i've been using for the past month. ^^ 

This is part of Maybelline's Asian line so it may be hard to get your hands on it if you don't live in Asia, but you can always purchase them online from YesStyle for £12. I've been wanting this for a while ever since I watched "Tested and Tried"'s video but sellers on eBay were selling it for up £30 when it first came out, like reallyyyyy?!

Starting on the review, some of the product info and claims:
  • Contains 60% gellified water. Releases water bubbles upon application
  • Easy spread in translucent gel formula
  • Its has refreshing formula that soothes and cools upon contact
  • 8 skin benefits that hydrate, nouriish, perfect and protects skin - UV protection, smaller pores, tone, clarity etc
  • Dewy soft finish, radiant and luminous sheen reminiscent of a baby's soft and smooth skin
  • Light buildable coverage
  • Good average
I like how it Maybelline called it BB watergel rather than BB cream, which I think is very suitable for the product as its very hydrating and has a gel texture. It comes in a 30ml size and the packaging is slim, this makes the product travel friendly.

The texture of this BB watergel really does feel like a gel, which I LOVEEE as its lightweight and glides on smoothly. It feels like as if you're applying a gel moisturizer to your face, since its so light and hydrating. Its non-sticky and it actually does have water droplets like Maybelline claims. Check out the comparison! ^^

The BB cream does blends flawlessly with the skin, giving you a sheen dewy glow. The dewiness is very natural as its a sheen, so if any oils start coming out during the day you wont look super oily/greasy. It blends in so well that it doesn't seem like your'e wearing makeup at all. It does evens out skin tone, make it appear smoother "like baby skin" and slightly reduces the appearance of pores. You can keep people wondering how did you get your complexion so flawless ay. ;D However, for people like me that have acne scars I feel that the coverage is average, as scars and acne will still be visible. Even though you can build it up for higher coverage, the coverage is just medium at the most. This product would have been perfect if it had a med-high coverage.

The BB watergel is only available in one shade which is a down side for people with tanned or dark skin.

I really do love this BB water gel as the texture is unique and it gives your skin such a natural healthy complexion. You will need to use more product than other BB cream though as it does absorb and disappears into the skin very quickly. I find that by the end of the day some of the BB watergel has worn off, so you will need to reapply it.

I would recommend this product to people with dry or normal skin as the moisturizing factor is great. Also if you're after dewy skin I definitely recommend this to you as it evens out skin tone nicely and has a beautiful natural radiance finish. For people that looking for high coverage, this is not the ideal BB cream for you as it has light/medium coverage. Also if you prefer matte finishes, you may not like this either. It is affordable. Overall I would rate this 7/10. It would have been the perfect BB "cream" for me if it had a higher coverage. I use it along with the Maybelline Pure Mineral Concealer to cover up any imperfections. So it works out ^_^

Hope you guys liked this and let me know what you think of this in the comments below ^_^

Youtube League of Legends Art Project! ^_^ & Miss Fortune Painting Art Process Photos

In my red hair dye post I briefly mentioned working on a project, by the title of this post you pretty much know what its about now. ;D So yes, I will now be painting League champions and making speed painting videos, at least once every month. To start off this "project" I painted my fave champion MF. ^^ I know some of you guys may want more, but due to my a-level subject choices its really hard for me to fit it into my scheduled already, as I do time consuming and heavy revision required subjects. >.< But for League its worth hahaha.

So why am I doing this? Mainly because I suck at League, the only thing i'm probably good at is art. League has the most beautiful and captivating splash arts, so why not paint them? ^^ I know i'm not the best "artist" but I am working on improving my skills. I really need to work on my League skills too lolol. Someone get Doublelift to teach me! >< I kid. xDD

I'm 5ever am loyal to kpop, so hopefully I will be posting some kpop painting too kekeke ^^ Anyway on the sidebar of my blog will now feature the latest video I post. I also updated the header of my blog if anyone noticed keke. I hope you guys will support me! and if you haven't watch my first viddy (its below for you ;D) Please share it around, like show everyone you know friends, family, neighborhood, the whole of china lolol i'm just kidding. But I will really appreciate it. ^_^

*Some have people mentioned to me to post it on Reddit, i'm not really sure how to use Reddit. Shameful but in all honesty, I didn't even know what Reddit was until one month ago opps! >< This is how you know that I spend majority of my time revising. I kid that's a lie, I do revise though. :') So guys feel free to post it on Reddit if you want xDD.

What do you guys think? Any suggestions tell me on the comments below! ^_^
