packaging..nozzle type,which i like it dispenses the right amount of cream.

DSCN7701
a small blob of the BB max...no yellow tones at all,well i dont know,but for me it looks ashy,i guess its because its supposed to desaturates some discolarations... but lets try it on shall we.

Photobucket
by the way just a quick comparison between their even complexion variant(top) and BB max(bottom)

Photobucket
right after application...it will not cover any imperfections,what it did for me is just face brightening and a little tone adjustment as well.

Photobucket
a few minutes after..see what i mean...it will not cover any marks,ive tried layering but its too thin for that,the consistency is more of a water based moisturizer...you can also still see the redness of my skin..and in terms of finish,well its not matte...for me its more dewy than matte.

Photobucket
it will also give you a white cast..if youre too excited to use this like i was,i noticed the more i apply the more white and ghastly my face gets on photos.Ive applied 2 layers of the BB max on this photo(Left) ,i applied a little concealer just to counter the red marks on my cheeks(right)

lets go over the claims again..

  • Results approved by 100% women*
  • Formula is protective-true with high SPF this will definitely protect you from harmful uv rays
  • Skin looks fairer. -True Skin definitely look fairer and brightened
  • Blemishes including pores are visibly reduced. -i guess yes,it will slightly reduce the appearance..
  • Wrinkles and fine lines are less visible. -same.
  • Dark spots are visibly faded out. -same
  • Skin tone looks more uniform. -i guess it will somehow even your skin tone
  • Skin is less dull. -true.
  • Skin tone looks natural.-true,the sheerness of the bb cream makes your skin glow from the inside 
  • Skin looks younger. -i dont know what this means,i guess this is for those who uses this almost everyday.
  • Skin feels comfortable.-true.

Conclusion:
Let me compare this first to some of the current BB Creams that ive used..
Missha(the one in the red tube)- that one almost has the same tone as this one although missha definitely gives more coverage than the BB Max plus Missha is creamier compared to this one.both of then has high SPF.missha with 42 BB max with 50.

Pure Derm Beauty Magic BB Cream-compared to BB max Pure Derm offers more coverage,has yellowish tone,and even if the pure derm is more on the thin side of bb creams i can still say that BB max is so much thinner.

Legere/BRTC-it has more coverage than missha and Pure Derm,finish is semi matte

so to sum it up,for a BB Cream ill give it 3 out 5 stars,but for a moisturizer ill give it 4....its a moisturizer with a slight tint to it,for a BB Cream its the Sheerest BB Cream that ive tried so far,and if im gonna compare it to a tinted moisturizer its also one of the sheerest ive seen.Maybe if i dont have scars or redness to cover i would've love this.

PROS:
  • High SPF
  • Its Lightweight
  • for those who doesnt need coverage this will brighten up your face.
  • Hygienic Packaging
  • Great for those pick me up natural look

CONS:
  • Too Sheer for my taste
  • White Cast
  • For those with darker skintone its best to try it on Loreal Counters first and check it on natural lighting and try taking some photos with it as well with flash.
  • Doesnt say that it's Oil free or Non Comedogenic
