Maybelline White Super Fresh with Pure Perlite 12 Hour Whitening + Perfecting Compact Review

Maybelline White SuperFresh compact comes in sleek white plastic packaging with a built in mirror and an applicator. The compact portion is covered with a plastic layer to prevent any abrasions on the powder. The applicator is white in color with one cotton side to apply the product. The compact shuts tight making it travel friendly.

The powder texture is  soft, finely milled and not overly creamy or powdery. The shade ‘Shell’ is exact match to my medium skin tone. It blends easily and gives a natural finish. It mattifies the face, controls shine and instantly brightens up the complexion. This is a great product to carry in your bag if you want an oil-free, natural looking skin.  The coverage is light which can be built up to some extent, but I don’t expect a lot from this product and one will need a concealer to hide any blemishes, scars or dark circles.  It however accentuates any dry patches on skin, like any other compact. So, dry skinned people should moisturize their skin properly before applying this product. The compact feels a bit chalky sometimes, especially while swatching on hand. But since it blends easily on face, I have no complaints. It has a very mild floral smell.

One thing I am not impressed with is the applicator. The cottony side looks okayish but on applying the compact, the cotton fibres shed. Limited shade selection is another con.

The 12 hour claim is obviously hyped and no compact in the world stays put for 12 hours! It controls oil for 2-3 hours max on my oily T-zone and I need to touch up after that.  The UV filters is an added benefit but do not rely completely on this product for sun protection.

Everything aside, the best part of this compact is the price. Rs 150 for 8g of product is very reasonable and the light coverage it provides is perfect for daily use, especially for college going girls, who want a no-makeup look.

This is how the applicator looks after 5-6 applications. See the shedding of cotton fibres?

Overall, this is a great budget friendly compact which mattifies and brightens the face effectively. It takes away shine and provides light coverage. College going girls and people who prefer no-makeup look should invest in this product. The packaging is sleek and sturdy to carry in handbag.  The only drawback is the limited shade selection and the low quality applicator. But i would overlook these minor cons for the price it comes in.

  1. Hi Blossom 😀 I m glad you are back.

    You know I have this product in coral shade and it’s nice but I was disappointed by the sponge/applicator. It started to loose its sponge texture in 3 applications which was quite strange for me.

    P.S. Have an awesome married life ahead 😉

  2. Awww.. Thank you Aksh 🙂
    I agree the applicator could have been better, but the compact is awesome. I use a makeup sponge to apply this compact. How is the coral shade against your skin tone?
