Maybelline Clear Smooth Cake Powder Review!

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

I always wanted a face powder and during my online shopping phase I had only 250 PKR left to buy something when my eyes caught this Maybelline Clear Smooth Cake Powder.I added it to my cart and waited two weeks for this product.

I bought it for 250 PKR from an online shopping website

Too many statements have been given but I'm going to pinpoint the main ones.
* Shine Control
* High UV Protection = SPF 25
* Instant Fairness
* Imperfections Blend Away
* Long Lasting
* Visibly Smooth Complexion
* Tone Perfecting

OMG! It is so dinky.The product comes in a 3.9g light pink colored container with a small mirror.The packaging is simple and plastic.The labels and statements written on the product are so small that I read them with a magnifying glass.Travel friendly,tightly secured and the sponge inside made me laugh.

This range comes in 5 shades and the shade I have is 01 light which goes perfectly with my skin tone.

A nice floral scent.

The powder is finely milled.It isn't powdery or crumbly and I haven't experienced any product fall out.

The powder applies evenly and yes it does smooth my not so even complexion.The powder feels lightweight on my skin and thankfully it didn't break me out.

Now it does not mattify my T zone completely and vanished after 2 hours leaving a thin veil of powder on my face.

No doubt I had a good laugh,seeing the small rather mini packaging and sponge but seriously the sponge helps to spread the product evenly and nicely.Maybelline has made very daunting statements and some do fulfill the claims but somethings about this powder is disappointing,
I.e, the simple and small packaging,the poor longevity,limited shades selection and it doesn't conceal any blemishes,acne and doesn't give any instant fairness except making my face look a little smooth.The powder isn't cakey and two to three swipes are enough to cover the whole face.It has SPF which is always a plus and it comes with a very cheap price.However I would say this is a fine product for this price tag.

To those who want a cheaply priced face powder.

No,It's too tiny for my liking.
