Hey guys, today I am back with another review. Today, I will be reviewing the newly launched pressed powder by Maybelline, which is the Maybelline White Superfresh 12hr Whitening+Brightening Compact. Ah, a mouthful!
If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook then you might have seen a photo of this compact I shared and told you that I was trying it out. After trying that for almost half a month, I am finally ready with my review.
Maybelline recently launched their White Superfresh compacts that they claim to keep you fair and fresh for 12 hours. The compact comes in three shades- Pearl (for Light to Medium complexion), Shell (for Medium complexion) and Coral (for Medium to Dark complexion). When I was asked to chose my shade, I was a bit confused so I chose Shell which is the medium shade. I was not sure about it because I don’t really like my compacts to be lighter than my skin tone. Let’s get into the review now-
Price- Rs 150/- (for 8 grams of product)
Packaging- The Maybelline White Superfresh compact comes in a cute white plastic packaging. It comes with a regular white puff and a mirror which comes in handy during touch ups. There is nothing extraordinary about the packaging.
Texture/Coverage/Staying Power- This compact has a very smooth finish to it. The powder is finely milled and does not look chalky. It settles into a powdery finish which you won’t like if you have very dry skin or uneven skin. It does not bother me because I have a combination skin type and I don’t use my compacts for coverage, I just lightly dust it to set my base makeup.
The White Superfresh compact gives a sheer to light coverage which again is okay for me as I already told you that I don’t use my compacts for coverage. It doesn’t give a good coverage but it definitely makes your skin look brighter. It instantly brightens up the entire face which gives an illusion of fairer skin tone. The presence of a mineral called Perlite in the compact causes that instant radiance to the skin.
Coming to the staying power, I won’t say it lasted on me for 12 hours but it definitely lasted on me for 6-7 hours. For the oil-control part, I applied it at 8:30 am and went to the university, at around 12pm I felt a little oiliness around the t-zone so I touched up very lightly. I checked again around 3pm and observed some shine around my nose and forehead. I must state that I have normal to dry skin during this time of the year and combination skin during the rest of the year. I don’t think this compact would last on me for that long during summer. I would love to see how many hours it stays on me in summer. The brightening effect definitely lasts for a longer period of time.
The company also claims that this compact contains UV filters that helps protect the skin for sun-damage.
Doesn’t feel chalky.
Doesn’t look cake-y when applied.
Instantly brightens up the face.
Helps control sebum for at least 6-7 hours with touch ups. (varies)
Have UV filters.
Cute, travel-friendly packaging.
Comes with a puff and a mirror.
Coverage could have been better.D
Does not stay for 12 hours as the brand claims.
Limited shade range.
Overall, I am impressed with the product because it brightens up my face instantly and effectively and also because it keeps oiliness at bay for a decent time. I don’t about others but I don’t really need my compacts to stay on me for 12 hours on a daily basis. I would suggest you to try this compact once. I am sure you will like it.
