If my memory does not fails me I remember that the first post it posted on this blog was on a pressed powder by Maybelline. I was so excited to share my thoughts on a newly released powder back then. That's when I first plunged my feet into the world of cosmetics.



Funnily the post I am sharing today is on another Maybelline pressed powder in same packaging and price range, but with a different name. It is the Maybelline super white fresh powder. Why do most of Maybelline products have frightfully long names?


Price:550 pkr
Quantity: 9 gms

The powder is cased in the same sturdy rectangular slim compact with a small square sponge.the only change to the design I that the mirror in the compact I a lot bigger than the clear all in one powder.

The super white fresh range comes in five shades and only two of them are available in pakistan. The sale girl accidentally gave me the 2nd shade I.e natural which I was afraid would be dark for my complexion but luckily when I applied it to my face. It matched my skin color quite well




This powder has spf 34+ which is good.and also one of reasons I believe it gives brightening effect to the skin. Its not chalky nor does it oxidize to an unhealthy orange color
It has smooth texture. The powder is finely milled and provides light to medium coverage(depends on how much you apply it to your face) . This can be worn on its own or dusted over a foundation for a matte finish

One of the best thing about this compact is that it comes with an option of refills. I spotted refills at Daraz for400 pkr


I decided to post a picture of all the three Maybelline powders I own.

Girls summer is on and the sun is blazing in its full glory. Summer is all about watermelon, peaches plum mangoes yummy!!  And of course the power outage which keep our sweat glands functional. And then can how can I forget the darling mosquitoes who sing sweet lullaby all night long and bite us to death

I thought about sharing my summer essentials for this year

MAKEUP:




It’s impossible for me to wear foundation in summer when I know all of my makeup is going to run down my face mixed with sweat
So I keep it simple by applying a thin layer of pressed powder the one I am using currently is by Maybelline read the review here

For lipstick I opt for a nude lip gloss or sometimes coral lipstick or a lip balm

For blusher: a coral blusher is my choice 


I like to use a pop of color on my lids colossal kajal by Maybelline in turquoise is what I use

Scent: 



I like to use this deodorant by fa. it has a very feminine scent and has a long lasting power also I does not stains the clothes

For skin care:



I like to use this peel off cucumber mask by freeman. So refreshing

For my nails



I find these nail paints quite bright and summer-y

That’s all!!  what are your summer essentials tell me in the comment box below

Now who does like cosmetics which come in cute small packaging? Everyone right 

I already own the full size version of Maybelline clear smooth all in one pressed powder (and love it) but when I saw this at the pharmacy I had to purchase its so cute



Quantity 3.7 g

Price 250 Pkr




Packaging

It’s a small round light pink compact, very sturdy comes with a little makeup sponge  and mirror

About the product

It’s pretty much the same as the full size version (read review here) gives medium coverage is light weigh does not looks cakey the good thing is that you can keep it in your purse as its small in size and does not takes much space


 



You can try out this deluxe version for yourself to see if it works out for your skin as it’s not too pricey

Maybelline is available at just4girls.pk beauty arena.pk and daraz.pk online while it can also be purchased at Maybelline counters present in your city

MY RATINGS

 i rate this product 5 out of 5
