Maybelline Clear Glow All in one Fairness Compact Powder

Maybelline Clear Glow All in One Fairness Compact Powder
Hi everyone,
Recently, I visited Maybelline counter and from there I bought Maybelline clear glow all in one fairness compact powder. I was planning to buy it online since it was launched but I was not sure of the shade that would suit me. So, I decided to buy this in person. I bought this along with my second tube of Maybelline BB cream.
Price- 155 INR
Quantity- 9 Gms Buy it here

Shade is 03 Natural

What the company claims- Maybelline Clear Glow All In One Fairness Compact Powder is a Maybelline pressed powder infused with Pro Vitamin C, it instantly illuminates skin’s appearance revealing a healthy fair glow. This is shine free, perfectly matte and fresh compact powder which helps defend from skin darkening & appearance of spots with SPF 26 PA++. This ultra fine lightweight powder blends easily giving optimum coverage for smooth, even skin.
Packaging- This Maybelline face powder has a slim and sleek compact packaging. I really like the baby pink colored outer case with Maybelline New York embossed. Inside it has separate slot made for keeping your sponge applicator. There is also a built in quite large mirror as compared to other compacts.

My experience- I got mine in the shade 03 RADIANCE since my Maybelline BB cream is also in Radiance and have been using this powder for more than a week. Currently, I am in love with this compact because I do have combination skin, an oily T zone with normal cheeks and it does helps in making my skin look matte. I don’t need much coverage, so i like to use this over my tinted moisturizer or soufflé and it does quite a good job in making my skin look even, perfectly matte and a shade lighter without looking chalky. The packaging does says that it has SPF 26 PA++ which is good.
This can also be used in wet formula by using a damp sponge which I am yet to try so cannot comment on that part sorrrrrry. But when you touch the product you can feel that its velvety so that can be due to the fact this it can be used both ways.
Earlier I was using Lakme Rose Powder in Soft pink and after that i have been using this compact and it has fetch great results so far so, Overall, I really liked this product and yes the price I paid is really good.

Moreover, I firmly believe it doesn’t matter how much we pay till the time the product proves that  it is worth the price that has been paid for it.
  • Packaging is really cute and adorable.
  • Slim and sleek packaging makes it travel friendly.
  • It is really cheap, considering the quality, quantity and the brand itself.
  • Availability should not be an issue at all. And it is available in 5 shades.
  • It does contain SPF which is nice.
  • It says that it has Vitamin C in it, which is good for our skin.
  • Doesn’t break me out and its oil free.
  • Makes my skin look visibly even toned and shine free.
  • Light weight, when applied.
  • It gives a little coverage, so can be applied over tinted or only moisturizers. 
As most of the times i use Oriflame Peach me perfect and then use this over that. It works good However, those who have dry skin might have to properly moisturize their skin before applying this.
  • Ingredients list is not mentioned on the outer packaging.
My take- Keeping in mind all the aspects right from price, packaging, brand, quantity and the experience that I got with this product, I would say that those of you who do have oily, normal or combination skin should definitely try this. Dry skinned beauties can use this after moisturizing their skin properly, otherwise the compacts or face powder can make their skin look flaky and more dry.
