Product claims :

The new perlite formula absorbs oil and sweat and gives you a fresh look all through the day. Now bid goodbye to touch-ups and stay fresh and fair upto 12hours.

It comes in a white compact package.Compact is sturdy enough and travel friendly. It has a mirror inside which is a must for a compact specially during quick touch ups.The puff provided with it is good enough and picks up enough quantity.The Maybelline White Compact is packaged in a white cardboard box which mentions all the necessary details and has a fresh ocean look.
My take on it
Speaking about the texture , It is smooth in feel and glides seamlessly over skin.It provides a matte finish over hence good for oily or combination skin.It absorbs light oil on skin and gives a matte look.
Coverage– Coverage is sheer to medium.when I applied it on bare face it simply mattify my skin and my tiny winy scars are visible as it is.I use it over a BB cream and that way it works perfectly over me.
staying power- Staying power is around 4-5 hours in a normal weather (can’t say about humid areas).After that touch up is required and I can see little shine on my nose (oily !!) after 4-5 hours.On Application it definitely brightens up the face and it instantly looks fresh.
Good points –
- Affordable price range.
- Mattifies skin for 4-5 hours in normal weather , perfect for combination/oily skin.
- fine and smooth texture.
- Comes with a mirror – plus point for a compact which costs 150 INR.
- UV protection provided.
Not so good point-
- Coverage is sheer.
- 12 hour claims are false.
- Limited shades.
Overall Maybelline new york White Super Fresh Compact is a good daily wear compact which gives a good matt finish and sheer coverage.I expect a little more coverage from a compact.But for a price tag of 150 INR it is a good buy if you do not have pigmentation and dry skin.
My recommendation is to use a BB cream or light weight foundation beneath it for a fresh look.
