Hi everyone !!
Today i am reviewing maybelline dream matte powder. this product was released in the “dream range”.
I was really eager to use this product since it is summer,matte compacts are the best in summers for oily skin(my skin is oily). Not only summers matte compacts are always good for oily skin because they give a shine free look by absorbing oil. The other reason why i was really eager was, maybelline is known for budget products but this powder 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 beige(medium) 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 undertone because for indian skin tones it suits the best.
Its a finely milled powder with a 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.
How to use ??
Apply maybilline dream matee powder on your nose,cheeks and skin with the provided puff using gentle downward stokes.build coverage gradually.set the powder by using a brush(optional).
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. The compartment swivels in and out easily, with this we can make out that 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 doesnot 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 doesnot give a cakey look,it goes on light.it gives a neat finish. Here comes the downside of the product it can control oil for easily 2 to 3 hours(not more than that if you have oily skin). if thats okay for you please dont consider this as a downside. If you have dry or combination skin it might stays longer.oily skin people would need to do a few
touch-ups for every two hours. Considering the price i expected it should control oil for a longer time.
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. I recommend this for people with moderately oily/combination/normal skin. If you have extremely oily skin this maynot provide you proper oil control. Overall it is a good product for daily use.
