Hey everyone! 😀 How did Christmas go? Mine was fun! I also had a movie marathon! I love movie marathon! Who else does? I saw many Horror genre movies like…The descent etc. I want to see more of these movies like The descent. So please comment down below, if you have any suggestions? 🙂 (I have seen Hills have the eyes and all Wrong turn series. So, now you know which ones I have already seen! 😛 P.S: I am not into Brutal/Gore movies just some Horror/Paranormal/Supernatural.) Coming back to today’s post! It’s on this compact powder from Maybelline. It’s been a while since it came in the market. And I have been using this for months! And now thought of reviewing it for you beauties!

Packaging

It comes packed in a card paper box with all the necessary information mentioned on it, except the ingredient list. The compact case is white in color and feels sturdy and classy in hand, it closes securely with a ‘tick’ sound and can be carried around. The compact case comes with a good size mirror, which seems bigger when compared to other compacts. There is a plastic cover which separates the puff and the compact pan. The compact puff is of good quality, it has one side soft and smooth, used for compact application and the other side is velvety.

Shade and texture

The Superfresh compact comes in three shades, which will suit most skin tones.

  1. Pearl– for light to medium skin tone.
  2. Shell– for medium skin tone.
  3. Coral– for medium to dark skin tone.

The one I have is in Pearl shade, as my skin complexion is light to medium with pink undertones.

The product contains finely milled powder. The texture is very smooth and the powder applies on the skin smoothly without appearing chalky or cake-y. It blends into the skin easily and makes the skin appear brighter by one shade. I use this compact as a setting powder on top of my bb cream/foundation. I only require one layer and the makeup base stays in place for a good 5-6 hours, however touch up is needed. As with time skin tends to get sweaty and oily. Sometime, I use the puff which is provided and sometime I use my powder brush. The powder applies smoothly both ways.

Fragrance

It has mild citrusy-floral fragrance, which did not irritate my nose and feels fresh when applying. However, the fragrance doesn’t last long, it disappears within few minutes of application.

Coverage and staying power

I have lot of blemishes on my face and this compact doesn’t cover any of them, neither it claims that. But I was expecting some sort of coverage. When using this as a setting powder ofcourse you can’t tell if this compact actually provided any coverage or not. So, I tested that using the compact alone with just a light moisturiser beneath. So, the compact only makes the skin appear fresh and glow-y and gives mattifying effect on the skin also evening out the skin tone. But doesn’t cover up any skin blemishes, but it improves skin tone and texture.

Using as a setting powder it makes the makeup last for 5-6 hours and using it alone it lasts for 3-4 hours. Same goes with outdoor- lasts for 3-4 hours and in AC room- lasts for 5-6 hours. Both ways it controls skin’s oil and gives mattifying effect, without drying out the skin and controls oil and shine for a good amount of time.

Overall, it’s a good product, I liked it! It stays true to its claims except the 12hr one. Let’s get real, we will require a touch up. So, if you have combination/oily skin a touch up is needed, otherwise on normal/dry skin one application is enough. 🙂

Cons of Maybelline white superfresh 12hr whitening + perfecting compact:

Rating: 4.5/5

This is perfect compact for daily use and fits into the bag easily. And also it isn’t hard on the pocket. I recommend this compact to everyone!

  1. I’m terrible at make up shopping, and I don’t know what any of the descriptors ever mean. 😉 But scary movies, I can talk scary movies. I’m not a big fan of any of the ones you listed, I don’t like run for your life scary, I like eerie mystery. Like Stir of Echo’s, Exorcist: The Beginning, and Darkness Falls. 🙂

    1. Hey 🙂
      😀 Thanks! I have seen The Exorcist and Darkness Falls! Enjoyed watching both! Will see Stir of Echo’s. 🙂
      And about makeup shopping…it’s okay we’ve all been terrible at it in the beginning, we learn with time! 😀

  2. Love movie marathons but not scary movies!!! Also not sure if I really like how this product claims to whiten complexion…I guess this works if you have a foundation thats a little too dark but I would think that you wouldnt want any whitening to happen otherwise. Great post and I liked how in-depth it is.
