Maybelline has alway been amongst one of my all time favourite makeup brand for sheer quality, affordability and variety. Today, in this write up, I am talking about the Maybelline White Superfresh Compact in the shade Pearl.
This compact is great for college goers and interns who are always on a lookout for affordable products. I have been using it for around few days now and am in a fairly good position to review this product.
So, let us read further to know whether this product is a hit or a miss.
You can find a lot of Maybelline on Jhalli Diva as it is a great pick for a drugstore brand. And hey, we are all for beauty in a budget!
Product Name: Maybelline White Superfresh Compact in the shade Pearl.
Product Description: Maybelline White Superfresh Compact is available in four different shades to suit the requirements of a fairly good number of skin tones in India. The shades are: Pearl, Shell, Marble and Coral.
- Pearl – It is the lightest shade for fair ladies. This compact has muted Pink undertones.
- Shell – Warmer in shade than Pearl and suits a broad spectrum of wheatish to fair skin tones.
- Coral – Again for medium skin tones with pale yellow undertones.
- Marble – Suitable for dusky skin tones.
This is an all new perfecting compact powder launched by the brand. It comes with the new Perlite formulation which absorbs oil and controls sweat to give your face, a fresh look all through the day. Bid goodbye to touch-ups and stay fresh up to 12 hours.
Price and Quantity: It retails for Rs 150 for 8 gm!
Availability: Available online as well as in all cosmetic stores. Buy here.
Swatches: Checkout the swatches of the compact below.
Smell: The product has a very mild fragrance. So nothing to be wary of!
Packaging: Maybelline SuperFresh Powders comes packaged in an attractive looking white, plastic packaging.
There is a mirror as well as a plain white applicator puff.
The packaging is lightweight and travel friendly. The external cardboard box, mentions all the necessary details of the product.
Ingredients: Not mentioned on the product. Have a look at the picture below!
Directions of use: Apply all over the face and neck with the help of the puff. Use the sponge provided to blend around the eyes, the hairline and jawline for a matte, perfect-looking complexion.
My Experience: This Super Fresh Compact Powder has a fine texture. It goes on smoothly on skin and sets with a slight powdery matte finish which is why, I feel that it is a perfect pick for oily as well as combination skin types.
As per the claims, it does control sebum secretion on face for a good stretch of time and helps to keep your complexion looking fresh and matte.
Since, this is more of a setting powder, it provides sheer to light coverage. It definitely brightens up and mattifies my complexion.
The Super Fresh Powder Compact 12 hour staying power claim is lame… as expected though, it does stay on nicely for a good 4 hours or so. For 150 bucks, it is a good performance.
1) Fine, smooth texture
2) Light coverage that’s sufficient for daily wear
3) Controls sebum secretion for at least 4 to 5 hours
4) Perfect for normal, combination to oily skin
5) Affordable and travel friendly
1) Limited number of shades
2) It can feel bit chalky on dry skin
Jhalli Diva Verdict – 4/5
Will I Repurchase?
Yes, surely I will repurchase as it gives sheer coverage, is lightweight, controls oil and did not break me out.

Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder is one of the most affordable, branded compacts that performs decently too in terms of staying power, mattefying your complexion and giving your face a fresh/ non-greasy appearance.
