Maybelline Clear Smooth Two Way Cake Review2:08 PM
Greetings and Assalamualaikum to all.
Maybelline Clear Smooth Two Way Cake Review. I've got a new baby here. This is my first time in my life trying out the cake powder from Maybelline. To be honest, I am someone who's dare going out without wearing any makeup nor face powder. You might said, "Wow, you must be proud of your skin right?". Unfortunately, it is not that I have super duper clear, healthy and beautiful skin. I honestly have a major crisis with 'makeup' and laziness is my absolute enemy. I am too lazy to clean out the mess I made on my face. Grin.
Wait... Just recently, I bought this new baby, Maybelline Clear Smooth Two Way Cake with me. Since the 50% discount on Maybelline product at online store was very seductive, I end up buying this baby. So here we goes, my review about Maybelline cake powder.
Maybelline Clear Smooth All In One, UV + Lightening Oil-Control Two Way Cake.
The all-in-one face powder that gives you visibly fairer, shine-free complexion. With no need for touch-ups, this long lasting cake powder protects, brightens, and controls oil for flawless, matte skin.
Maybelline Clear Smooth All-In-One shine free cake powder is infused with vitamin C, which brightens the skin instantly while the ultra-fine powder effortlessly cover spots and blemishes, giving you an even-toned complexion (From the web).
With Mineral Perlite + Squalane + Vitamin E
Long Lasting Shine Control - Blend of water and sebum repellent powders keep skin shine free throughout the wear all day.
High UV Protection - SPF 32 PA+++ protects against UV rays responsible for skin darkening.
Long Wear - Breathable and lightweight, make up stays true and even throughout the wear.
Instant Brightening - Visibly makes skin brighter and more natural.
Conceals - Ultra fine powders and coated pigment effortlessly conceal spots and other imperfections.
Smoothes - Glides on skin with a silky soft texture that evens out skin surface for a visibly smooth complexion.
Evens - Developed for South East Asian skin tone, each shade blends evenly for a natural non cakey and tone perfecting finish.
HOW TO USE/APPLY
Apply Clear Smooth All-In-One face powder with a sponge or a powder brush all over your face and neck starting from the center of your face and then blending it outwards.
TALC, PERLITE, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, ETHYHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE, DIMETHICONE, ALUMINIUM HYDROXIDE, STEARIC ACID, SILICA, METHICONE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, SQUALANE, PARFUM/ FRAGRANCE, TOCOPHEROL,LINALOOL, BHT, GERANIOL, HYDROXYCITRONELLAL, CITRONELLOL, CETYL PEG/PPG-10/1 DIMETHICONE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE [+/- MAY CONTAIN CI77891/ TITANIUM DIOXIDE, MICA, CI77491, CI77492, CI77499/ IRON OXIDES] (F.I.L B188231/1)
The Packaging - As nice as pink color, it it kinda cute. Nicely pack.
◼ Shine control - Yes. It really does the job like it said. My skin don't get oily during the day when applying this cake powder. (I have normal skin type).
◼ Instant fairness - Yes. It work instantly. Rather that dry application, I love wet application more. It is like a better coverage with wet application for me.
◼ Visibly smooth complexion - Yes. And it is kinda lightweight too. Love that.
◼ Cover dark spots - Not really. When there is too much melanin production, dark spot may appear in your specific area of the skin. My prediction, it may works for minor dark spot. I have quite visible acne scar on my cheek (kinda dark in color), and it still slightly visible after applying this face powder.
◼ Long lasting - Yes. Try wet application, and it is awesome. Recommended for those who have a dry skin, try this wet application.
◼ Conceal blemishes and pores - Doesn't really works for major problem.
◼ Tone perfecting - Yes. Agree on this. It blend so well with my skin tone.
It is quite okay for my skin. I love the lightweight effect and the instant fairness. It blend well and easy to wash off (I just clean them using my normal foam cleanser). Tips for anyone who have quite visible acne scars like mine for example, you will need to apply concealer first, before applying this cake powder to hide the imperfections. Overall it is okay. Its an affordable price too.
My rate for this cake powder, 4/5.
