Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact in shade – “Shell”- Review.


Hello My Chicas,  😉

Today I will be reviewing another newly launched, pocket friendly compact powder by Maybelline New York, a brand that is everyone’s favorite, mostly those who are in schools and colleges.

Maybelline launched new White Super Fresh Compact in 3 different shades: Pearl, Shell and Coral. I have Shell, which has yellow undertone which is suitable for every Indian skin tone.


What brand claims:

Women feel their complexion looks and feels best in the morning- right after applying the compact. However, as the day goes on, ordinary compacts may mix with sweat and oil. Making the complexion look dark, dull and patchy. And feel cakey and dirty. Perlite, a pure mineral with skin perfecting powers. Visibly lightens complexion, while absorbing sweat and oil. UV filters protects skin from both sun darkening and damage. Stay Fair & Fresh 12 Hours With The New White Super Fresh Compact.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.

How to use: Apply all over the face and neck with the puff provided. Blend well around the eyes, along the hairline and jaw line, for a naturally perfect-looking complexion.

Price & Quantity: INR 150 for 8 g.


The packaging comes in light weight white coloured plastic case, with build in mirror and application puff. The puff is quite flimsy and tends to pick up extra products which lead to wastage. The powder has light floral scent to it which is rather refreshing and calming.

IMG_9265The texture of Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact powder is smooth and silky like any other decent pressed powders. However it has powdery consistency and not as creamy and smooth like other pressed powders I have used. Honestly with 150 INR I cannot expect more. It blends effortlessly and gives matte finish without looking cakey or overdone. Perfect for setting foundation and concealer. Easier to carry in purse and suitable for touching up makeups for that instant fresh and brightening effect.

IMG_9268Best for oily/combination skin types. For dry skin, a good moisturizer is very important or else it may cling to dry patches or any blemishes. The powder gives sheer to light coverage, very natural on skin which is great for everyday usage. If you are looking for good coverage then this is not for you, although we can get a lot better pressed powders in market that provides medium coverage.  The lasting power is 4 hours max on my combination skin (during summer). Therefore “12 hours fair, fresh and perfect “is nothing but complete misleading statement!


What I like about Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact:

  • Available easily.
  • Smooth and blendable texture.
  • Light weight breathable formula.
  • Gives natural matte finish.
  • Brightens up complexion, giving naturally fresh perfect look.
  • Has UV filters.
  • Last for decent time.
  • Has nice soft floral scent.

What I don’t like about Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact:

  • Doesn’t stay for 12 hours as claims.
  • Shades are limited.
  • No ingredients list mentioned. 
  • Powdery texture.

Rating: 3.5/5

Decent product and very budget friendly. Perfect for daily use! Yes, definitely should check this pressed powder by Maybelline New York.
