My Take On Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder

Although I'm a makeup enthusiast I don't prefer using foundations or BB creams on a everyday basis for work as I'm not much of a fan of layering!
I always prefer a good moisturizer and sunscreen topped off with a light compact and I'm done with my base :) So when Maybelline launched this compact I wanted to pick it up as I always trust their products. Top of all they are budget-friendly too ;)

Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder comes in 3 shades and I picked it up in Pearl which is the lightest and also because it is the one with pink undertones. The other two shades are of yellow\beige undertones.

The compact comes in a cute pearl white case which is sturdy enough and looks classy! The sponge is a very good addition as it is of very good quality and perfect for use unlike other ones from drugstore brands. Maybelline has definitely impressed me in this :D

The powder is finely milled and has a soft and smooth texture. But still it doesn't have a satin-y texture and does feel power-y to touch! This could have been improved :)

The powder when applied is easy to blend and spreads well on skin. The compact gives decent coverage and doesn't leave a whitish cast. However as the shade selection is very limited people with darker skin doesn't have much of a choice :(

The compact claims to give 12 hours coverage which isn't true. But it does stay for 4-5 hours and you will need a touch-up after that which is common with any compact powder.
I have quite oily skin and the compact does help in absorbing excess sebum and keeping my skin fresh. Overall this is a good compact powder for oily skin and for the price it comes its definitely worth a shot :)
