Hello girls, so winter is here and it calls for double laziness :p. Lately, I have not been using much makeup due to my busy schedule. All that I do now is to dab some compact, wear kohl and lip balm or lipstick and I’m good to go. Recently, Maybelline sent me their new range of super affordable compact for daily use and I am using it regularly now. It is time when I do a quick review on it, have a look:
Price: INR 150 for 8g
Features: A pure mineral with skin perfecting powders. Visibly lightens complexion while absorbing sweat and oil
- UV filters protects skin from skin lightening and damage
- 12 hour fair, fresh and prefect
Method of use: Apply all over face and neck with the puff provided, Blend well around he eyes, hairline and jawline, for a natural perfect-looking complexion. Dermatologist tested. Available in three shades and suitable for everyday use.
Shades available: Pearl (light to medium), shell (medium) and Coral (medium to dark)
My take on the product: This compact from Maybelline comes in a white round case with attached mirror and puff for application. The packaging is sturdy and I’m happy that they are providing a mirror for touch ups at this price.
I got the shade “Shell” which has yellow undertones and thankfully it matches well with my skin tone. By whitening, it doesn’t makes my face look ghost white but it instantly brightens up my complexion on application. The product has a powdery texture which is not very smooth but it blends well to give a medium coverage and gives a matte finish.
It stays up to 4 hours after which it needs touch up especially on my oily T-zone. The compact has a pleasant fragrance. It also claims to provide protection against the sun with its UV filters which is a bonus.
Overall it does a decent job of brightening the skin without making my face look white. Though there are only three shades in this range but I think they’ll suit majority of skin tones. Check out my first FOTD below :p
Pros: 1. Stays up to 4 hours
2. Smells wonderful
3. Blends well and instantly brightens my skin
Recommendation: I’ll highly recommend this product to all since it works wonderfully for regular use and the price is super affordable.
