Maybelline Dream Satin Ultra Breathable Satin
Today, I am sharing my review on yet another product I received from Nykaa in their 4th Birthday celebration goodies bag. It is the Maybelline Dream Satin ultra-breathable Satin two way cake compact. They launched this compact during summers last year.
I really like the packaging it looks quite classy and sturdy with a matte-beige colored outer case. You may assess the beautiful packaging it has, from the pictures attached. The compact comes with a full sized mirror as well. It is very convenient to carry the mirror around whenever you are out and have your touch ups easily.
The shade I received from them is PO1 Beige Chiffon which is one shade lighter for me to use. I like it and will use it for the highlighting purposes(when doing baking ). While in the palette it gave an impersonating look for my skin matching my tone but when I applied it, I was disappointed as my face looked little cakey. In fact after a few hours, my face looked a lot patchy and this is not at all a good sign.
Though the product is supposed to work two ways – as powder and wet but for me it would only work in powdered form as in the wet form it looks cakey. I applied only a little amount but that left a whitish casting on my skin. I am not happy with this outcome L
On a positive note, I feel this product specifically its texture is a boon the oily skinned people as it controls oil really well for 3 to 4 hours. But it would not suit any other skin type. Strictly a no for the dry skinned people.
Its price in the market is INR 500 for a 9 grams pack. It also has a SPF 32 PA+++ in it. I like this thing about it as it has the necessary ingredients to take care of the sunny hues in this scorching weather.
Overall, I have a mixed review for this product. The packaging is impressive and appeals an onlooker perfectly. But the actual product on usage is only average and does fail to impress. People with an oily skin can still have something to look forward to but it is nothing special for people with dry skin. The cakey appearance would make you feel bad about using it.
I am not very keen to buy this product. Since I now have it, I would use it as a highlighter alone. I do not think I would like to use this variant at least. If anyone has used it as well, do share your thoughts.
Shade Name – PO1 Chiffon Beige
It is available in six shades overall. The other shades are B2 Soft Honey, O3 Cream Nude, PO3 Sandy Smooth, PO peach Puff and BO0 Soft Almond.
I do not think this product is for Indian skin. It is made for the skin and temperatures that are not soaring high which would only happen in the United States or European regions where the weather is not extreme. I am a little disappointed with this product and also with the fact that another product from the Nykaa Goodie Bag has turned out to be unfitting.
The product does fail to impress me not sure if someone disagrees to me here. Do share your reviews.
