Today’s post is all about the most affordable compact from Maybelline, which is the Maybelline New York Super fresh 12hrs whitening and Perfecting compact. I don’t know, what is this fuss about “Whitening”. Nothing in this universe can whiten your skin. You can regain your lost complexion but you cannot change your skin colour.
Maybelline New York introduces it’s all new perfecting compact powder, White Super Fresh that comes in three shades, Pearl, Shell and Coral. The new perlite formula absorbs oil and sweat and gives you a fresh look all through the day. Now bid goodbye to touch-ups and stay fresh and fair up to 12hours
Price: Rs 150/-
My take on the Product
Packaging: The Maybelline super fresh white compact comes in a white round compact packaging with a mirror. The compact comes with a white puff for application. The puff is not very great for application, it’s meant more for touch ups. For more coverage a sponge or a brush would be apt. The Maybelline White Compact comes in 3 shades with Pearl (lightest), Shell and Coral (darkest).
- Pearl is the lightest shade with pink undertones and will go pale to fair skin with neutral or cool tones.-
- Shell is light shade with yellow undertones that will suit fair to medium skin with warm undertones.
- Coral is a shade with deeper tones that has slight orange tinge to it and will suit medium skin.
It’s pretty surprising that they do not have shades for duskier beauties
Texture: The shade I purchased is pearl as it really blends well with my skin tone. The compact has really fine soft milled powder. It’s very soft on skin and blends really well without making the skin look patchy. The compact is meant for more for keep skin fresh and oil free. It’s not meant for covering pimples or marks.
The compact has fresh floral fragrance, which is not over- powering.
Does The Maybelline superfresh 12hr compact, live up to the claims it makes?
Absorbs oil and sweat and gives you a fresh look: Yes, it keeps skin sweat and oil free for almost 6hrs. I have worn this in Bombay’s scorching heat and really manages to keep you fresh.

Does it lead it to break out: No
