           Maybelline whitestay UV fairness compact powder (Product review and swatches)

You guys must be more happy this Tuesday as tomorrow must be an off for most of you.India is such a great place to stay because we have so many things to celebrate and we have so many offs too :D:D
I am newbie in Maybelline cosmetics as I prefer more of Revlon and Loreal but now I realise that this brand is quiet reasonable and interesting.I got this fairness compact powder of Maybelline a month back and have been using it almost every day.

Price of Maybelline whitestay fairness compact powder is Rs 150

My fondness with compact powder can be seen here. .I always end up making a whole in them.I am a foundation person and if I am in hurry then I follow this foundation substitute technique which is easy and gives me sheer coverage.
                             Above are my MAC compact and revlon compact

What the product claims – Maybelline new york white stay UV fairness compact powder gives glowing finish instantly.Vitamin C brightens the skin tone instantly for visible fairness that lasts all day.SOF 18 UV fillers protects from skin darkening.
Hidens dark spots and imperfections for a flawless natural look.
Oil free powder keeps skin feeling fresh through the day.
Silky soft texture – Ultra fine powder spreads easily and smoothly onto the skin.

Light weight and mild , this powder is suitable for everyday use.
Dermatolgically tested, allergy tested and won’t clog pores.
Wow this one has high claims!!!!
This pressed powder is available in five shades 
White ivory
Light ivory
Natural
Nude
Fawn
Starting from the lightest to the darkest. I choose the natural one.
My experience with the product:-
I have oily skin and a compact powder is must for me. This ones goes well with my skin and I thought initally thought that is going to look chalky but it didn’t.It doesn’t give much of coverage to me because I choose the natural colour but even if I use it on my dark circles (which I hardly have) or blemishes it gives a mild coverage and not something which I will boast about.
      

Below are the swatches of Maybelline compact powder on my hand

                          Smooth and glowing but you can see some whitish chalkiness in it.
What I liked about the product:-
1.Even outs my skin and stays for long.

2. Has SPF in it and it is decently priced.

3.It is great to use when you needs touch up.

4.My skin doesn’t feel oily at all for many hours after using this.It some how soaks up all the oil from my skin.

5.It gives a fresh feeling to my skin and does not clogs the pores.I feel it as it is too light on my skin.

6.I can easily carry it any where in my bag and it comes with a round mirror which is of good quality.

7.Doesn’t irritate my skin and doesn’t have any smell.

Recommendation – If you do not want a chalky look then prefer the natural shade.Other shades might gives you that whitish irritating funny touch to your skin.(Those who are dusky complexion)It certainly doesn’t cover any blemsihes if you have not used any foundation but it is a great product to be used in summer for those who have oily skin.Decently priced and will suit most skin type.

It will specially suit those who have fair skin.
P.S- Colorbar has colorbar face compact.Have you tried that?? It is almost of same packaging and look?

  5. I have this in Natural Ivory.. I think the chalkiness is becoz of the SPF. It needs a lot of buffing & blending to look natural. It is very easy to go wrong & look caked in this 🙂

  6. I love it too, only you need to be careful when applying this – you can't just slap it on using the puff provided. Otherwise it is an excellent prdt 🙂

  7. I have this in Nautural…this is the FIRST ever compact that dint break me out. Tried Revlon Mineal foundation powder before this but it broke me after a week's usage…so now sticking to this….and i quite like this…!!!!
