Maybelline White Superfresh Compact Review

Hey beautifuls, last week I did a number of makeup looks and whenever I wanted a day time matte look, the one product that was common was the newly launched Maybelline White Superfresh 12 Hr Whitening +Perfecting Compact. So today I will be sharing my experience with the product.


About Maybelline White Superfresh 12 Hr Whitening +Perfecting Compact:
Perlite: Natural mineral that lightens complexion
Absorbs sweat and oil and keeps skin fresh for 12 hours
Superior puff and packaging


Price: Rs.150 Available here

Packaging: The Maybelline White Superfresh Compact comes in a white and blue outer cardboard packaging. The compact is a white round one made of plastic and comes with a mirror and a puff. It has a thin plastic film that protects the powder.


My Experience: During summers I like to use press powders to blot grease and and control shine. The Maybelline White Superfresh Compact exactly does this job of controlling oil and shine and keeping the skin matte for a very long time. Available in 3 shades, it offers long time coverage and protection. I am using the shade Shell, which has a yellowish tone, very similar to my complexion. When taken on the finger for swatch it appears to be quite flaky, so you need to puff around some extra amount to give you a nice coverage. What I like mostly about the compact is it is a perfect day wear compact, that can be used daily, to avoid sweating and controlling shine. Now it can be quite dry for dry skin and may not be very useful during winters.


Maybelline White Superfresh Compact gives a sheer to medium coverage and imparts a natural look to the skin. It covers imperfections moderately, however, you may still require a concealer for a flawless coverage. The availability of shades is limited and you may not get something for dusky skinned beauties. Overall, I am satisfied with the performance of the compact, as I think the utility and packaging makes it an ideal one to be carried inside a purse for a quick puff-up. The applicator is decent and although the sheer finish of the compact requires extra product for good coverage, the applicator is smooth enough to glide  seamlessly.

Pros:
1. Matte finish
2. Controls shine and oiliness
3. 12 hour protection
4. Ideal for daily use
5. Nice packaging
6. Affordable
7. Good applicator
8. Best for summer times
9. Good one for oily skin

Cons:
1. May not hide major imperfections
2. May be dry for very dry skin

Rating:4/5


Maybelline White Superfresh Compact is a decent and affordable compact in the Indian market. It can be an ideal mattifying coverage for daily use, specially for those who go out a lot. I would recommend it to those beauties who are in the look out for an affordable compact to control shine and sweat.
