I am reviewing the maybelline dream matte powder in this post. This product was released in the “dream range”.
Matte compacts are the best in summers for oily skin. I was really eager to try this one because maybelline is known for budget products but this compact is expensive when compared with the other maybelline products.
what does the company claims about the product ??
-Air-Soft matte perfection ( TRUE )
-Oil-Free (KEEPS THE SKIN OIL FREE FOR 2 TO 3 HOURS)
-Won’t clog pores (TRUE)
price :Rs 475 for 9g
It comes in four shades.
I got the shade Medium beige which has a little yellow undertone,only this one has yellow undertone in all the four shades. I think they should introduce more shades with yellow undertones because for indian skin tones it suits the best.
Its a finely milled powder with ultra-fine particles,it has an ultra silky texture. The puff which comes with the compact is a suede-touch puff that aids even,effortless application.
It comes in a cream coloured compact packaging with a transparent lid. It has a bottom compartment which consists of a mirror and a puff. It is travel friendly.
My Experienece With Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
I was really impressed with the packaging. I have a feeling that the compact is expensive because of the packaging. I have oily skin. It brightens the skin and gives me light coverage. It does not cover blemishes or acne marks. If you are looking for covering acne marks or blemishes this is not for you. I use this without foundation to get a fresh and polished look.
The puff is one of the main advantage of this compact. Even if we take more product with the puff it doesnot give a powdery look ,it blends in the skin easily. The powder does not give a cake look it goes on light. It gives a neat finish. Here comes the downside of the product it can control oil for only 2 to 3 hours. If that is okay for you please don’t consider this as a downside. If you got dry or combination skin it might stays longer. Oily skinned beauties would need to do a few touch-ups for every two hours.
It comes as an expensive product from this brand. The packaging is very convinient to use and it is quite brilliant. The texture of the powder is smooth and finely milled. It gives a neat matte finish to the skin without giving a cakey look. The downside of the product is it controls oil for only 2 hours on oily skin. Overall it is a good product for daily use.
