Hi pretty girls,
This is my first review for a compact powder. Compact powder is a part of my daily makeup if I go out. The title might scare some of you, but it is just a nice compact from Maybelline suitable for the Indian skin. I was a Lakme user prior to trying out this compact powder. Read to know if this one is for you.
YOU CAN OWN IT FOR HOW MANY BUCKS?
$ 3.35 For 9 g; Rs.225 For 9 g.
SHADE CODE: 01 (Light)
MY VIEW ON MAYBELLINE CLEAR GLOW ALL IN ONE SHINE FREE CAKE POWDER
This compact powder comes in a sleek, cute and matte packaging. You can carry it anywhere. It comes with a mild fragrance which doesn’t seem to irritate. It contains SPF 32 PA++, which is a wow factor. The compact powder fits in your palm.
It comes with a lovely mirror attached to it. There are two compartments inside. One holds the compact powder while the other holds the sponge.
The compact powder is not very powdery. It stays intact in its compartment. A very small amount is enough to cover your face. One time application is enough. If you try over coating your face, you might end up looking like a ghost.Dry skinned people might want to use a cream first before applying this compact, as you will experience dry patches.
When used with a foundation or BB cream, you can expect full coverage from the blemishes. The photo I have put doesn’t involve the use of any foundation. It is just the before & after photo using Maybelline clear glow all in one shine free cake powder.
It stays on for 3-4 hours if not exposed to the hot scorching sun. You may want to avoid this one if your work environment involves a lot of outdoor activities. It is not waterproof. Even though it contains SPF it does not stay for a long time outdoors. For this price range, you should not expect more than this. This is a decent compact powder, ideal for daily use, affordable. I would recommend it if you are not fond of heavy makeup.
