Maybelline-Clear glow Compact powder!

Compact powder is part of everyone’s make up kit. As I was exploring my options to buy a new compact  I got attracted to this pink packaging. I have been using the Maybelline Clear glow  BB  cream so thought of trying out the Clear Glow Compact too.Also, the company recommends using this compact with the BB cream for best results; so why not :).The product felt good and has sun protection too, so picked it up without a second thought.


The product claims to “Turn on the light for skin that looks bright, visibly fair and shine free.

  • Enhances fairness & brightens  skin with Pro  Vitamin C Formula.With Vitamin C this powder instantly illuminates skin’s appearance, revealing a healthy fair glow
  • A blend of water and sebum repellant  powder gives you a matte and fresh look.
  •  SPF 26, PA++,protects the skin from  darkening and appearance of spots.
  • Evens & Perfects tone.Conceals flaws & Smoothes


How to use-Apply to your forehead,  nose, cheeks, and chin with the provided sponge using gentle downward strokes.You could also wet the sponge as told by the representative though i have not tried till now.

  • Lightweight
  • Oil free
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Allergy tested
  • Non comedogenic (no blackheads as it doesn’t block the pores)
  • Available in 5 shades


I fell in love with the packaging at an instance,when I asked the price I was taken aback.For INR175,it’s a steal. It  has light but sturdy plastic casing and comes with a built-in vanity mirror, compact pan and sponge applicator.The casing is rectangular and light pink in color.On one side is the sponge holder while the other side has the compact.It’s quite sleek and good for traveling.The buffer is nice and  should be able to handle a few washes.


The powder is fine and feels soft and light on the face. You cannot compare it with high-end brands as that is not like an apple to orange comparison but for its price ,it lives more than up to it.It keeps oil away for a few hours but not for  too long in the summers.The SPF of 26 gets this product a few more brownie points from me,especially in summers, to have sun protection is an added advantage.The compact is suitable only for combination to oily skin,tends to leave the skin dry.

The compact comes in 5 different shades but  the shades would suit fair and medium skin tone only. I would say the Maybelline Compact is good enough for the price it comes.

Price:INR 175 for 9 gms.

Shades-Pressed Talc,01 Light,02 Nude Beige,03 Natural and 04 Sand Beige
