Review: Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Silk Cake Powder

BB cream user?
Packaging freak?
Purple lover?
My answers are just all YES!!!

"OMG!"--my initial reaction when I first saw this uber cutesy purple compact from Maybelline.
More so that I've read it's label--"BB Silk". 
Well, knowing how much I love to use my bb cream daily, 
And sooo, woot woot!
I've been using this for a month now and finally I'm going to throw my two cents.


Pore-smoothing BB Silk Essence is infused into our ultra fine powders to blend into a silky soft, weightless film that won’t sent into or highlight your pores. Instantly creates a smoother, poreless looking skin. Brighter UV-Protected Skin. Contains “Korean Mulberry Root Extract”, known to lighten and brighten skin while inhibiting melanin production. Skin instantly becomes visibly brighter and more radiant. SPF 21 PA+++ protects skin from harmful UV rays and skin darkening. Oil Control for Hours. Oil absorbing ingredients effectively absorbs excess oil though the wear.


-Reflective purple compact is super cute.
-Separate bottom compartment for sponge is hygienic.
- Affordable and locally available at PHP 329.00
-Has SPF 21 PA++. Perfect for summer time noh?
-Blends easily and gives a silky finish
-No break-outs after a month of use
-No need for touch-ups in my case since I don't have oily skin.
I use bb cream as base and I stay mostly in an air-conditioned area.
-Not powdery or chalky whenever I use my brush to apply this on my face.
-The coverage is light to medium and leaves my skin looking poreless and fresh.

-Compact is a little bulky, wishing it was a little sleek instead.
-More shades please. This seem to be for fair but with cool undertone as it leans more on pink side and I am fair with more of a warmer yellow undertones. 02 which is the next shade is already dark for me.

Overall, considering the price and the quality of what you're getting, I definitely recommend this.
With the compact itself actually, I'm all contented haha!

Thanks for reading!
Have you tried this powder pact already?
I just love how Maybelline tries to inovate their products from packaging and formula.
Oh, I love their mascaras and lippies btw.
How about you?
"Maybe it's Maybelline"    
Randomly remembering their ads on TV haha :p

So yeah, Happy Holy Week everyone!

  7. This looks great! I have really big pores so this sounds like it would be perfect for me, cant wait to get my hands on it


  8. Hello! I accidentally came across your blog and saw that you're really into BB creams. Have you heard of the Encara BB cream? It's in one shade that everyone raves about. It's in yellow undertone and I think you would like it. Unfortunately I am fair and in pink undertone so I felt indecisive about it.

    If you're interested, search Aica Apollo on facebook. :)
