How is your week coming along? Winter has FINALLY set in and I’m enjoying the weather all bundled up at home. 😀 I really wish we had a month long vacation at work 😛 Hey! One can dream, right?
Anyhoo, today I’m here to talk about the latest launch by Maybelline. Maybelline is a brand that has never disappointed me with what they promise to deliver at such affordable prices. My love for Maybelline is very evident on the blog already 😛 So when they launched Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact with Pure Perlite Whitening+Perfecting Compact(phew), I didn’t want to miss reviewing it! I’ve been using the product for 2 weeks now and here’s my view on it…

Product Price: Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact is priced at Rs.150 for 8g. How affordable! 😀

My take on Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact
Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact comes in three shades –
1) Pearl – This is a shade which is suitable for pale skin tones with pink undertones.
2) Shell – This is the ideal shade for medium-fair skin tones with slight yellow undertones.
3) Coral – This shade is ideal for dusky- medium skin tones
I got the shade in Shell.
Packaging: Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact comes in a white glossy round case with a applicator sponge and built in mirror. I love how classy and cute the packaging looks with the brand name embossed in silver. The packaging is travel friendly and can be easily tossed away in your makeup pouch.
Fragrance and Texture: The compact has a flowery fragrance which is quite refreshing. I got Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact in the shade Shell which is a great shade for Indian skin tones considering the fact that we have slightly yellow undertones.
The texture is finely milled and goes on smooth when applied. However, I don’t use the applicator given as I have combination skin and my skin gets a bit dry in the T-zone area. The applicator sponge tends to accentuate the dry areas. I have ALWAYS used a powder brush for applying any compact powder on my face and I follow the same with Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact too. 🙂
Results: I have been using this compact for two weeks now and I absolutely love it. 🙂 The compact promises whitening effect. Although I do not encourage and use whitening products as I feel one’s natural skin tone is beautiful, I thought the tag ‘whitening’ added to this product would add a whitish cast to the face. However, it doesn’t, so that’s a plus! I use it in the morning before leaving to work and my face looks fresh for almost 7-8 hrs which is pretty awesome. I don’t require touch-ups as I don’t stay out for longer than that. But if you have a looooooong day planned, a little swish-and-swoosh is required once after 7-8 hours 🙂
Coverage on it’s own is light-to-medium. It would cover slight imperfections like uneven skin tone and light marks on your skin. Like I said, I have combination skin so some parts of my face get oily very soon. With this, I saw that my face remained oil-free for almost 5-6 hours and then settled down to dewy skin. Another plus is, I have sensitive skin and the compact hasn’t broken me out.
Pros of Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact:
- Great packaging
- Travel friendly
- Stays put for almost 7-8 hours
- Controls oil on the face
- Hasn’t caused any breakouts on my face
Cons of Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact:
- The applicator sponge can be given a miss
- Can be a con for people who are looking fo heavy coverage. This has light-to-medium coverage which is the ideal coverage for any compact.
