Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder Shell Review, FOTD

Hi guys,

I have been using this Maybelline White Super Fresh with Pure Perlite 12 Hour Whitening + Perfecting Compact Powder (wow, that’s quite a mouthful) since the past 2-3 days and here is my review..

Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder Shell Review, FOTD

What the Company claims: How does White Super Fresh stand out compared to all you other compact powders?

– It lasts up to 12 hours.
– No dabbing, washing or touch-ups necessary.
– Keeps you fresh and fair throughout the day.
– Absorbs sweat and doesn’t let your skin get patchy.
–  Available in 3 shades for your skin tone: Pearl (Light to Medium), Shell (Medium) & Coral (Medium to Dark).
– Priced at Rs.150.
– Has Pure Perlite and UV Filters
– Dermatologist tested and suitable for everyday use

Here is my review on Youtube too..

It comes in this white compact packaging with a mirror and a sponge. The sponge has a rubber finish on one side, so it can only be used through the one cotton side.

I have the shade Shell which is meant for medium skin tones. I am glad that it has yellow undertones, by the name ‘White’ going on the compact I was not very sure. But thankfully it matches me perfectly and does not give a whitish cast.

It has a soft floral smell which is quite pleasing. The packaging is sturdy enough and the mirror and sponge make it very travel friendly. It gives light to medium coverage which is buildable i.e one swipe will give you light coverage and going over 2-3 times will give you medium coverage. But it won’t hide your acne scars or dark circles which means you will need a separate concealer for that.

And even though I use a rich moisturiser, it does accentuate my dry patches. The powder is very finely milled and smooth but it not very creamy, though it it not very dry and powdery kinds too, somewhere in between.

Coming to the staying power and no touch up claim, it does stay put thoughout the day but I need to touch up my oily T-zone once after 5-6 hours as it gets slightly shiny. One slight touch up and I am good to go through the day. If you have dry skin, you won’t need any touch ups and if you have oily skin, one touch up and you will be sorted. It does the mattifying job amazingly well and oil does stay away from your skin through the day.

It blends seamlessly and merges with your skin tone and it actually keeps the skin looking fresh throughout the day.

The only con I would say is it doesn’t have sunscreen protection, but then we don’t rely on compact powders for sunscreen protection anyway. Also I am not sure how the other two shades are and if the darkest shade Coral is a match enough for all skin tones, but I believe 4-5 shades could have been better. I am not very pleased with the ‘Whitening’ claim too.

Here is the shade ‘Shell’ on me, I only have this compact ON and no other base..

The best part is the price and quantity, at Rs.150/- and 8g of product, it is by far one of the most economical compact powders right now.

Overall, I would say it’s a very nice budget compact and perfect for oily to combination skin. It does it’s job of keeping oil at bay very well. If you have dry skin, you will need a rich moisturiser with this. Highly recommended!

      I hope so Sangeeta 🙂

  • i loved your video. it was perfect and descriptive enough to understand how the product is. How is it compared to the Loreal magique compact. i believe both of them have this perlite powder in it. juggling between which one to get.

    • bhumika_t

      Thank you 🙂 Did you get your giveaway prize? Both are matte, but L’Oreal has slightly better coverage and more shade options, also has SPF 34 PA+++ protection but is almost three times the price. I would say L’Oreal is better, but if you want something economical, then go for Maybelline.

      • Thank you, BHumika. I did receive the prize this week. Sadly, they had sent an expired lip product so I had to dump that. The eyeshadow and nail polish are well within the expiry dates though, so I can use them. I will get the Loreal product , thank you for your detailed explanations. I always return to your blog knowingly well that you have dissected the product well and given a great review on it 🙂
