Maybelline White Superfresh compact is not a new launch. However, I recently spotted a new shade to the range and a new formulation with SPF 28. I have no clue if the existing shades have also been changed to this new formulation or just this one shade named “Marble.” Moreover, Maybelline calls this compact now “White Superfresh 12Hr Whitening + Freshness” compact rather than “White Superfresh 12Hr Whitening + Perfecting” compact. Ideally, this compact is meant to provide fairness and freshness up to 12 hours. Does it?
Price: INR 160 for 8 g [BUY HERE: Maybelline New York White Super Fresh Compact Marble (8g)]
Shelf Life: 24 months
Ingredients: Except for the core ingredient “perlite,” which is a pure mineral with skin perfecting powers, full list of ingredients is not mentioned.
Product Description: Stay fair & fresh 12 hours with the new white superfresh compact. The new perlite formula absorbs oil and sweat and gives you a fresh look all through the day, now with SPF 28. It is time to bid goodbye to touch-ups and stay fresh and fair up to 12 hours.
My Experience with Maybelline White Superfresh 12Hr Whitening + Freshness Compact Marble
Packaging: This compact powder comes in a plain white opaque packaging with just the brand name written in silver. All necessary details are mentioned at the back of the case. It has a clear big mirror at the back of the lid. A clear plastic sheet separates the product and the puff. The lid closes with a click, making it very secure to throw in the bag to take on the go for touchups. The actual product is housed inside a white and blue designed outer paper cardboard box. However, it was disappointing that full ingredients list was not provided. For the price it comes, even their Fit Me Pressed Powders do not have such an exclusive packaging.
Texture: The texture of this compact powder is very fine and smooth. It is so soft and blends beautifully on the skin. It does not give a powdery look but a natural finish to the face. However, it does have powdery fallout, which could be a little messy. It has a pleasant floral scent to it. It is meant for all skin types. It also contains SPF 28.
Shade: Earlier, this compact powder used to come in 3 shades: Pearl, Shell, and Coral. Recently, Maybelline has included this shade Marble. It is actually meant for very fair to fair skin people. However, as it is a sheer compact, it can be used for any skin tone.
Performance: This compact powder is very lightweight, making it ideal for daily use. As the name suggests, it instantly adds freshness to the face. It applies very nicely because of its finely milled smooth texture. It also gives a slight brightening effect. It applies evenly and does not accentuate dry patches. It gives a naturally perfect-looking complexion. However, it has a very sheer coverage, almost no coverage to be precise. Upon layering, it still looks sheer. If I go a little overboard trying to build up the coverage, it starts looking white. It does not hide any uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, or problem areas. It gives a decent matte finish. The new perlite formula controls oil and gives a matte effect for a maximum of 3 hours. Then my T zone gets a little oily. When touched up, I am good to go for another 2 hours. It also contains SPF 28 that protects the skin for sun darkening and damage. If you are someone who likes to wear a tinted moisturizer and a compact for that matte effect on a daily basis, this is the one! It truly fulfills all its claims except for its 12-hour staying power. However, I do not expect more than this for this budget friendly product. Overall, I love the brightness and freshness it adds to the face without making it cakey or powdery.
