Blame it on my quarter-life crisis but now I have started to give a lot of attention to how I look. Come on, I am ageing. I will soon reach a depressing number of 25. My make-up kit has now extended from just eye-liners of every colour and a basic lip gloss to a kit containing base, compact, shadows etc. But its okay – looking good makes me feel good.
Maybelline happens to be a brand which is really suitable for daily usage when it comes to creams and compacts. They are light, hassle-free and fits well in your budget.
I have been using this compact – Maybelline White Super (Shell)– for a few days now and I can not be happier. I have already had read a lot about this range as in why this is perfect for daily wear before I actually got a hands-on experience to use it.
Let me start with the packaging. The product is pretty sleek to carry it in your handbag. It comes with a puff applicator of really good quality. And of course, the customary mirror is also present.
Now after you use it, you will realize that it is pretty light. It claims to be effective for 12 hours but you can go without a touch up for almost 10 hours. This I guess is perfectly fine too. For those 10 hours, your skin will feel completely fresh and dry because it absorbs sweat pretty well. Also, if you have extremely dry skin, you can avoid this product because it is suitable for normal to dry and normal to oily skin.
Also, for daytime wear, I find it perfect because of the UV filters which avoid the instant darkening of skin when out in the sun.
The best part about this is that your skin won’t feel patchy. Usually, a closer look reveals that powder has been applied on the skin. But Maybelline Superfresh blends so well that it feels just like a natural layer to your skin.

I use the shade called Shell because it blends well with my complexion.

Also, this product leaves your skin pretty smooth and a very cutely and mildly fragrant. I like this product a lot. Try it, maybe?
