Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Instant Skin Smoother – BB Mousse SPF 30, PA +++

I usually never notice mousse anything, until my bestie keep on telling me how fabulous Shu Uemura Mousse foundation is. I’m not entirely sold, and not willing to shell out so much money for foundation I rarely use.
So, when I saw similar concept from Maybelline (cheaper too!), I was eager to try. An extension to the Mineral line from Maybelline, this one claims to be as effective as BB cream, but with fun mousse texture! I think this one came in 2 shades. Comes with SPF and PA protection too. Sounds good!
It took me a while to master dispensing technique of this one, mainly because I am not used with mousse products.  The nozzle dispenses unscented fluffy, light, soft mousse – that’s easy to spread and blends nicely with my skin tone. my skin is fairly non problematic  (except for annoyingly oily T zone), so I cant really see the difference in smoothness this product offers. However, it really does give my skin fresh, light yet matte finish. I love how my skin feels and look after fresh application of this one.  Coverage BB Mousse offers is light-medium, doesn’t really cover blemishes, but it does make my skin look more even toned. 
Even though it starts off with matte finish, my skin does get oily as usual. I need to blot after about 2 hours, that’s quite normal for me (same with when I only apply my moisturizer and sunblock).
This one is fun addition to my collection of foundations. Pleasant to wear, but not a must.
I got mine from Sasa Taiwan. This product is not available in all Asian countries.
