Happy October everyone!!My review for today is a pressed powder from Maybelline. Whenever any of my relatives come to India they get cosmetics, clothes and dry fruits. This is one of the gifts I got recently from one of my relatives. And I was happy that she got a pressed powder from one of my favorite brands that is Maybelline. I pretty much liked it when I saw it because it was part a mineral powder and I have read many articles on why are mineral products good for the skin from the other cosmetic products. Read further to know more about this goody from Maybelline.
Somewhere around $7

My take on Maybelline Pure Mineral Natural Healthy Pressed Powder:
I always have a habit of stocking up on beauty products since I was 15 but pressed powders are one thing that I don’t really collect and keep. I get a new one only after I finish the earlier one. And this is the last one that I had in my closet and super excited to finish this so that I can shop again. This one comes in a brownish maroon shimmery compact case which is very travel friendly and it has a big mirror inside it and the mirror quality is pretty good too. It is very easy to open the case and start using the compact. Now most of the compacts from abroad face this problem of breaking up when dropped somewhere but I purposely took the risk of dropping it off and seeing what happened but thank god and my luck that it did not break. The shade that I got is N0.2 so this is the medium shade I think not that fair and not that tan too but this shade perfectly matched my skin tone. I would say it is not fragrance free; it does have a fragrance like that typical compact powder that we always find and you know what smell I am talking about and the smell is great; I personally liked it a lot but it does not stay ,it is only till the time you open the case. The sponge that I got with it is super soft and very easy to apply and blend the pressed powder.
The pressed powder gets easily swiped up on the face and neck and I just spread it all over and it sets easily on my face. Now it did give a brightening effect to my face and neck which looked very radiant and fresh but it did not give any coverage and for that I had to sue a concealer beneath. It has a perfect matte finish so it will take away all the excess shine from the face but my face did get oily after 2 hours like usual. And then re-application is needed but 2 hours is the maximum time that you can expect from a pressed powder so I am quite happy with this one. It does a perfect job as a pressed powder, perfectly designed packaging and not expensive too. But I would say that it is not that best and we have good options available too.
Pros of Maybelline Pure Mineral Natural Healthy Pressed Powder:
-The pressed powder lasts really long quantity-wise
-The shade perfectly matched my skin tone
-Conveniently packaged and designed
-Has a good fragrance
-It is a mineral powder which is better to use than normal cosmetic product as per my knowledge
-Gave a brightening effect to my skin

-Takes away all the excess shine
Cons of Maybelline Pure Mineral Natural Healthy Pressed Powder:
-Did not provide a coverage as they claimed
-My skin became oily again after 2 hours
Will I repurchase/recommend Maybelline Pure Mineral Natural Healthy Pressed Powder?
Yes I will because it is a great matte finishing powder and being a mineral one, considered better than the others but I won’t think of getting it again because I want to try new stuff.
