I am so happy I got this!!! It's the BB cushion I have always wanted and dreamed about, being a very oily skinned girl! It does go on matte, not a lot of dewyness seen unlike most bb cushions and it doesn't feel tacky once applied! Super easy to being around since the puff is there and just extremely easy to use! It does emphasize my huge pores at the beginning but a little bit of blending takes the problem away! It also lasts the whole day, with a little help from my matte primer but I do have super oily skin! THE BB CUSHION ALL OILY GIRLS MUST TRY!!!!!

Mattifying, nice coverage, and doesn't rub off even after a day in the office

I've tried both the BB cushions from Maybelline, and this is the best one yet. 'Fresh Matte' is exactly what you'd think it is - mattifying and would make your skin look fresh. I normally apply it using my slightly wet make-up sponge (either my beauty blender or that dupe from forever 21) and it allows more control in regard to application and blending (since I have combination skin). The water from the sponge also gives it more time to stay moist longer (the formula is so mattifying, if literally dries up in seconds). I tried both variations too - Natural and Light. Natural would work so perfectly on morena skin, while Light would work better for medium to light tones (the right one for my skin tone + acidity). Also, go for light if your skin is quite acidic like mine. In case it dries up and makes applying your concealer a bit of a drag, just bounce your slightly wet make-up sponge and it'll blend real well afterwards. The mirror (both for the bb cushion and fresh matte cases) is large, so it's really all you need to bring with you in case you feel the need to retouch. It still has a bit of a brightening effect, so if you prefer to look 100% matte, just lightly brush some powder and you'll be all set. Such a great formula for a price point that's waaay lower than other bb cushions. It hasn't caused my skin to break out either, so it's the perfect cushion for me at this point. Oh, it's buildable too, so coverage is pretty good.

Great for Oily Skin

I've always been intimidated with BB Creams because they've always made my oily skin look so greasy at the end of the day! When I saw other oily girls raving about this, I knew that I wanted to give this a try. I did, and I've never looked back! This BB cushion gives my skin such a natural glowy finish, and I get asked a lot if I went to the derma, but honestly it's all in this BB cream! It hid my pores and acne scars very well without suffocating my skin, and at the end of the day it still looks good with no need for touchups. I stopped using my mattifying foundations for a month now because this BB cushion is the best! What I only wish is that Maybelline would sell refills because I always feel bad for throwing packagings.

Best Cushion Ever

I was very excited to try this since it was first released. It is made especially for oily skin girls like me. I love how after I moisturize and just wait for a few minutes for my moisturizer to sink it, I just use this cushion and tap tap it on my face and it gives me a flawless look. It covers imperfections well and last for 8 hours minimum for me. I just top with loose powder to make it last even longer. Love this!

My go-to cushion for humid days!

I have combination skin and I really hate that whenever I use a good semi-matte finish bb cream, 2 hours later the shine on my t-zone, especially the corners of my nose are visible already but the rest of my face is still ok. This cushion is great for the summer! I use Quick FX's No Shine Mattifier as my everyday primer plus this cushion. During these hot days, I try not to use so much make up because it starts to feel uncomfortable on the face if you're out and about in this intense heat. Overall, I found that this cushion is lightweight, does not look cakey after setting it with powder. I only had to blot once throughout the day and that was after 5 hours into the day. The only thing I didn't like about this is that it emphasizes dry patches on the skin. :( Make sure to apply moisturizer first on those areas before using this. Shade used: 02 Light

worth a try!

I have been using different bb cushions/creams just to search for the one which would definitely match my skin type. This bb cushion definitely is one of those! i have certified oily skin. it doesnt really get rid of all the oil but lessens it which makes it a bit more manaeable that you dont have to check your face every once i a while! definitely a good buy and worth a try! Even my sister and my mom use it! :))
