Review: Maybelline Super BB Fresh Matte Cushion

Let me start my blog comeback (tagal ko nawala mga bes!! 😂) with a cushion review. Last 2016 was a year of my cushion makeup obsession. I thought my love affair with cushion makeup ended when I gave birth but everytime I see new cushion makeup online and locally I still get excited to try them. This product was given to me as part of the 2017 Maybelline Squad.. Yay I am a part of this group.The Maybelline SQuad gets first dibs on Maybelline's fresh releases and I am pretty sure matutuwa kayo sa mga pasabog nila na launch for 2017 especially for face category!!! Okay back to the review. This cushion is pretty much like my korean cushion. This has an air puff sponge and a bulky compact like April Skin's Snow Cushion. 

This cushion retails for 749 pesos with 14g net weight. It comes in two shades - Light and Natural. I got the shade Natural. 
The shade Natural is a medium beige with peach tones. When I first swatched it, it threw me off because it looked orangey on my yellow skintone. When blended, this shade suits my skin perfectly. 
This cushion is surprisingly really really good! I must say that it is one of the best cushions I have tried. First,the shade Natural look so perfect on my Nc30 skintone. Perfect match talaga! It does not give me any white cast despite having spf 25. It does not give off a grayish cast as well. Most cushions I have tried have a ghostly like cast esp. on flash photography. This has no extreme white cast but I did notice that it made my skin look a bit brighter than usual. Maybellibe says it has a matte finish. I say this has a demi matte finish. To prevent the product from melting or creasing, sealing it off with powder is a must. The coverage is medium but buildable. This covers up my dark circles and evens out my skintone very nicely. This cushion looks good on photos and has that blurring power. Thsu, my face looks extra smooth and my pores are almost non existent. It also does a great job of covering my psorasis flare up.

Despite having a demi matte finish, this does not cling on my rashes and dry areas as evidenced by the photos below. Oil control properties is also great! It stays on my face for more than three hourse sans retouch. It does stay or held up for hours on my skin even on a sunny and humid weather. Indeed, it makes my face look fresh throughout the day. It does not crease on my fine lines as long as it is properly set. The color does oxidize on my skin and it does not have a scent. It did not irritate my skin. This cushion also feels light and does not feel greasy or oily.
Look how well it covered my redness and evened out my skin tone. It also did a great job in concealingvmy under eye.

Overall, I am in love with this cushion. It has an awesome coverage, the shade matches my skin perfectly, and it has a good staying power (take note that I have dry skin). Also, this is available locally. Sadly, Maybelline do not sell refills for this cushion but you can always wait for their flash sales.
