This faster drying action results in a clean touch and fresh makeup all day. You no longer need touch-ups!

Maybelline White Super Fresh Long LAsting UV Cake Powder SPF34 PA+++ Compact

I like how this new compact design as it looks very simple, white and clean. It comes in rectangular shape with rounded corners.

Upon opening the compact, there’s a full sized mirror, foundation cake and sponge. Normally, I would us my brush to apply but I will still keep the sponge in case I need it.

A closer look on the compact where the powders looked fine and matte. The shade I have chosen is Honey, the second darkest shade that they have.

Honey has quite a bit of yellow undertone and from the swatch, the powder doesn’t seem to be as fine as I expected.  This shade does look slightly darker for my skin but it goes well if I use brighter liquid foundation.

From the ingredients listing, I could se that there isn’t any alcohol and paraben which will be very kind to the skin.

Maybelline White Super Fresh Long LAsting UV Cake Powder SPF34 PA+++Before & After

Here is a before and after, pardon the huge breakout on my forehead. I tried to apply sparingly, otherwise it could look very yellow on me. I could tell that it provides light to medium coverage as it did not fully covered the breakout, bare in mind that I did not apply liquid foundation here. It brightens instantly with matte finish.

Above all…

I love this powder because it feels light on my skin and gives a decent matte coverage. It also instantly makes my skin looks brighter on camera but in real, I couldn’t see that it is.  My skin started to get oily after 5 hours on my nose and t-zone area, that’s where it started to wear off. I have been using it for more than a week now and I hope this could stay better on my skin. This isn’t a bad foundation, just because it didn’t work well on me. If you do not have crazy oily skin like I do, I do recommend this powder for you to try.
