When this pretty pink parcel arrived I was super happy to see that it was filled with Maybelline’s All In One compressed powder. Not only is the packaging pretty but it also comes in 9 different shades range from light to cocoa so everyone is covered (excuse the pun). On top of that, the powder is also affordable at only R79.95.
Maybelline Clear Smooth All In One Shine-Free Cake Powder is said to last all day long, it also contains an SPF 25 and helps to control shine, conceal flaws as well as smooth, even, mattify and perfect ones skin tone. So does it do all that it claims. As a typical combination skin type with a noticeably shiny t-zone I was the perfect test subject for this and I must say it does indeed do a great job. I did find myself reapplying at lunch time and again after work before heading out but not out of necessity but more out of habit to freshen up my face and look. It certainly keeps shine at bay and my skin still felt light. I have been reaching for this on a daily basis for the past two weeks and haven’t experienced any clogging of pores either. Maybelline were very generous but when I do eventually run out this is something I will re-purchase myself. I find as a beauty blogger that is my true test of whether a product is worthy of a review.
