Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Watergel has gotten its fair share of raves upon its release in Japan earlier this Spring. I really liked the original Maybelline Pure BB Mineral formula so I curious about BB Watergel formula.
I’m glad curiosity got the better of me as I really like this.
Take a look!
Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Watergel is available in two shades and supposedly contains eight kinds of minerals that condition skin while creating a natural, healthy appearance while protecting skin with an SPF 35 PA+++.
I purchased the Light shade which was a perfect match for my skin. This is a lighter beige shade with beige undertones. This comes in a smaller squeeze tube at around 30ML in size.
I don’t typically like watergel style formulas however, this is quite lovely. It’s a gel-like consistency with a very hydrating formula that goes a bit runny and watery upon contact with skin (it kinda forms little water drops as you apply it and blend out). It isn’t sticky or tacky and leaves a dewy to the touch finish on skin providing lovely hydration without looking shiny or oily. It absorbs really quickly and provides very minimal coverage.
This is the type of product you might wish to use to correct or use as a base. OR if you already have fairly good skin you can use it for lightweight coverage to even out skin tone but not to hide major skin issues you might have. I like how it restores a more healthy look to my duller skin and gives the appearance of a no makeup look. The wear time is a little shorter unfortunately due to the water content in the formula so expect to touch up often throughout the day.
Considering my skin is drier this is ideal as it feels like it allows my skin to retain moisture through the day and keeps my skin fresh yet still it remains light enough to work well on oily skin without creating unnecessary shine or oil!
Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Watergel has a few quirks but deserves the raves it is getting on beauty blogs in Japan, Singapore, etc…are deserves as it’s quite a lovely formula. If you don’t mind the lack of coverage and the shorter wear time this is a hydrating tinted moisturizer of sorts that’s ideal for Summer wear.
It’s available via a variety of online shops and Sasa.com also sells it.
Anyone try/use it?
