Today I will be reviewing one of my favourite products that I have been loving this summer. It has to be this super cute compact from Maybelline. It is my all-time favourite drugstore brand. Now, lets get started with the review.
Maybelline New York introduces it’s all new perfecting compact powder, White Super Fresh that comes in three shades, Pearl, Shell and Coral. The new perlite formula absorbs oil and sweat and gives you a fresh look all through the day. Now bid goodbye to touch-ups and stay fresh and fair upto 12hours.
INR 150 for 8g
Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder comes in a white cardboard box packaging with the product details on the front and back. The actual product comes in a refreshing looking white round shaped sturdy plastic container. It has a good quality mirror and a powder puff which helps in even powder application. A thin plastic layer separates the actual product and the puff thus making it user and travel friendly.
The compact is available in three shades namely pearl, shell and coral where pearl is the lightest and coral is the darkest. I picked up the shade ‘Shell’ which is a warm toned medium beige shade with yellow undertones and thus it is apt for most Indian skin tones. The best part about this compact is that inspite of the name ‘White fresh’ it does not leave a white cast behind on application. But certainly leaves me feeling fresh. It has a light fruity floral fragrance to it which is not noticeable and vanishes post application. It gives light to medium coverage. It is buildable.
The powder is finely milled however it does feel a bit powdery but it applies evenly and blends easily. One thing that I like about this compact is that it does not accentuate my dry patches. It is perfect for my oily skin since it controls sebum production for a good 3-4 hours leaving my face looking matte and glowing.
Now coming to the longevity it stay puts on me for good 4-5 hours after which I need a touch up. So it does not live upto its claim of having 12hr staying power. Also, I do not like the fact that Maybelline came up with this whitening concept. Personally, I do not like products that claim to provide whitening effect. I do not believe in it. I only wish they did not come up with such whitening concept.
Here I have used Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder as the base. I have applied Sugar Cosmetics eyeliner, Maybelline Volum Express mascara and Loreal Infallible lipstick in 212 Rambling Rose.
My thoughts about Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact in Shell
I swear by this compact. It is an absolute must have for me in summers. It blends in so well. It is quiet reasonable. It does not accentuate my dry patches. It mattifies my skin. It controls sebum production. Overall it is a great product except that it does not live upto its longevity claims. Also, I wish they come up with some more shades in this range.
It is a great compact for daily use. Oily skin beauties should definitely give this a try. It is an absolute must have for summers.
