I used to use this bb stick by Maybelline quite a lot in my initial college days when I had just started applying makeup. I used the shade Radiance since the other one was quite dark for my complexion. It was perfect for the everyday look and since I was always in a hurry and was always a late comer, I could use this easily on the go. It created no fuss. Just swipe it on the face and blend with fingers. It gives medium coverage and is great for beginners. Now that I've learned applying makeup quite well, I like using full coverage foundations.

The packaging is very convenient to use; no messy finger application, just draw the lines with the stick on your face & use a foundation brush for quick application. The texture is ultra smooth and it spreads easily & evenly on the skin.I still need to moisturise my face really well before using the BB Stick. With proper moisturisation, it will work well for dry skin in summers & not so harsh winters but still I noticed some flaking near my temples & chin area because of dryness.
The shade Radiance works fine for me and this BB Stick is available only in 2 shades in India – Radiance & Fawn. Fawn is really really dark and I think for most Indian skin tones a shade between Radiance & Fawn would have been ideal. Radiance has pink undertones to it, so it instantly brightens up the under eye area. It works well in terms of coverage too and if you don’t have heavy dark circles, blemishes or visible pores to hide it will work just fine on its own. It gives an almost matte finish to the skin but with a setting powder it will remain shine free for longer hours. It has SPF 21, so it is just perfect for summer days & also it contains Salicylic acid, which works well for oily/acne prone skin.
This bb stick was alright to use. Not very good but not bad either. Honestly, i expected more from the product because when i tried it's tester it covered all my pores well and was a good match for my complexion but when i started to use it, it was not so good. It has a very greasy texture. And even though the smell doesn't matter so much, i didn't like it. It gives medium coverage and is an average product in all. I like the bb cream more so it's definitely a "not buying again."
