Review: Silkygirl Magic BB Cushion SPF 50/PA+++

A matte BB cream is a rare find especially on cushions! That is why I often reach out for my foundations more when its hot and humid because I don't want to be a grease ball at the end of the day. But gone are the days of dissatisfaction with BB creams when I started using Silkygirl Magic BB Cushion SPF 50/PA+++.

Silkygirl Magic BB Cushion SPF 50/PA+++

What is it? 
This BB Cushion is enriched with beneficial key ingredients like Skin Light Complex, Eldelweiss Extract and it is rich in mineral water to keep skin looking fresh and youthful to make you stand out. Dap on this BB Cushion and tap-tap on skin for medium to high coverage. Available in 2 shades; 01 Natural Light, and 02 Natural Medium.

• 12-hour Oil-Control
• Fragrance-free
• SPF50/PA+++
• Formulated for Asian Skin

Their white plastic compact reminds me of the old Clean and clear powder I have before, it's pretty basic but clean looking. On top it has the Silkygirl logo which faded after a while.

Beauty is only skin deep! What matters is the inside, which also goes with this Silkygirl Magic BB Cushion SPF 50/PA+++. The cushion is made out of soft foam which has the 15g of product. It doesn't leak nor dry out and so far I have been using mine for a month now.

The 2 shades lean more on yellow undertone which is great because often than not most of the korean BB creams are greyish or has a pink undertone. The 2 shades is still insufficient because if you are pretty fair like me you might find this a bit dark. For normal skinned gals you may use it as is. It is a true matte and won't make you oil up. For finishing touches I like to top it off with a bit of powder for a more flawless finish.

Sometimes though if the skin is too dry (which is what my skin usually is when I use my acne cream) it can make the pores look bigger so make sue to moisturize. I also find that the coverage on red marks is pretty good but it doesn't last long. It fades on me and at the end of the day it seems I didn't put anything on my face at all. What I like to do to solve this is to layer it on sunblock. Using sunblock underneath it actually helps it stay longer as it adheres better to the skin. I use Celeteque sunblock cream. You may also opt to use a liquid foundation or BB cream if you're not a fan of sunblock.

How much and where to buy?
P675 available in Lazada, BeautyMNL and Silkygirl kiosks nationwide.

What I love
  • SPF 50 PA+++
  • Brightens and hydrates
  • Oil Control
  • Long wearing
  • Fragrance-free
  • Formulated for Asian skin
What I don't
  • None so far

Will I repurchase? 
YES! Hopefully there can be a lighter shade in the future.

Silkygirl Magic BB Cushion SPF 50/PA+++ is an awesome find and it does stand out among the BB cushions available today as the matte effect is perfect for the Philippine weather and the shades are perfect for Filipinas. Price wise this is also budget friendly, it doesn't break the bank and it doesn't dry easily.

And that's today's review. What's your favorite BB cushion right now?
