I hope you all are looking pretty today, everything in its place- hair, makeup, enthusiasm to try out new products. 😀
Today I have come up with Maybelline expert finishing loose powder, it seems to be less talked about as compared to compacts I guess… I wasn’t aware of loose powders before until I used my cousin’s and fuind it very useful for my skin as my skin is oily and it gives a matte finish so decided to get one for me too. My shade is Natural Beige(02). This resides in my must have’s kit besides kajal and lip gloss whenever I am out.
Price: INR 350-400 for 5 gms ( I don’t remember exact price).
Product Description: A matte translucent finish. Light weight, ultra fine, non- drying texture. Sets makeup perfectly for hours and hours of wear.
My Experience on Maybelline expert Finishing Loose powder:
The product comes in a transparent plastic tub with silver cap and includes a powder puff inside. The packaging is very convenient, non breakable and easy to carry. The tub has several tiny holes on top from which loose powder comes out on the puff. I have to tap the tub several times on the puff to get loose powder. Though you get a small quantity but loose powder won’t be wasted. The tub is transparent so you can easily check out the quantity left. Overall I like the packing .
It is meant to be applied after foundation and concealer. I got natural beige shade as it was a good match for my skin tone and gave a natural finish to my skin. I applied this after foundation and it gave a matte finish to my skin and I loved the way it set my base . But doesn’t help much for oily skin as I feel my skin is getting oily again after even 2 hrs so I have to apply it again and again for matte finish.
Sometimes, I wear this even without foundation and it evens out my skin tone a bit .. if my skin feels oily even without makeup I use this powder to blot.My skin doesn’t feel cakey even when I apply it 2-3 times to set my foundation and not even when my skin gets oily.
Pros of Maybelline Expert Finishing Loose Powder :
1. Convenient and sturdy packing.
2. Easy to carry.
3. Powder puff comes in the pack.
4. Loose powder comes out through tiny holes and ensures there will be no wastage.
5. Sets the foundation and gives natural and matte finish.
6. Suited for frequent touch ups.
Cons of Maybelline Expert Finishing Loose Powder :
1. My skin gets oily even after 2 hrs of application so have to touch up frequently. ( doesn’t help much for oily skin)
2. To get a small quantity have to pat the jar a lot of times. ( as little quantity comes out )
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5
Recommend: I won’t recommend this to oily skinned beauties as it is of no help in controlling the oil.
