After my last review on Maybelline BB Stick, here I am with another product review on a new addition to my make-up kit. It is the Maybelline Clear Glow All In One Fairness Compact Powder. BB stick was great but it had a few disadvantages as well. You can read the empty-bottle review here. This compact, according to me is a much better substitute, especially when it comes to skin color.
All In One Fairness Compact Powder, as Maybelline claims it:
This product promises to turn on the light of skin that looks bright, visibly fair and shine free.
- It is infused with Pro Vitamin C, instantly illuminating skin’s appearance, revealing a healthy, fair glow.
- It contains SPF 26 PA++ which prevents the skin from darkening.
- It’s ultra fine, lightweight powders blend easily giving optimum coverage to erase spot appearance for smooth, even skin.
- Blend of water and sebum repellent powders keep skin shine free, perfectly matte and fresh.
Packaging and Quantity:
It comes in a rectangular lilac box with two sections inside- one for the compact and another for the sponge (which is placed on a perforated base). The quantity seems good enough to last at least a month on regular usage. It has a mirror on the inside. You can carry this in your purse for a quick touch-up.
Shades and usage:
The best part about this product is that it comes in 5 different shades. Therefore you can have the perfect shade that matches with your skin tone. I opted for the shade “Sand Beige”. The compact can be dabbed on as a powder and it can also be used with a wet sponge as a concealer.
It is priced at Rs 175. But the new stock has its price slightly raised.
It does not give a very flawless effect used alone if you have dark spots. But used with a concealer or a BB stick gives great results. Moreover, it has a tendency to make the skin appear dry. So for the healthy glow, I need a BB stick base.
It’s only been a few days since I used it, but I am liking it. Works really well in the humid weather and keeps my skin shine free.
