Maybelline New York White Super Fresh Compact: Review

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
I am not much of a compact girl since they sort of make my skin look cakey. I prefer loose powder or mineral powder to set my makeup. But when I heard so much about Maybelline New York White Super Fresh Compact, I thought of giving it a try. It is available in 4 shades out of which I got the Pearl Fair to Medium skin one.

This is not my first Maybelline compact since I have tried Maybelline Clear Glow all in one compact previously and trust me it was not a good experience. However, since it claims to give 12 hour freshness, whitening and SPF 28, I thought, why not try it once!

According to the brand

Maybelline New York White Super Fresh has UV filters that protect skin from both sun darkening and damage. Helps you stay 12 Hr Fair and Fresh. Contains Perlite, a pure mineral that helps absorbs oil and sweat. Gives a naturally perfect-looking complexion. Contains SPF 28 to protect your skin. Suitable for everyday use.

  • Perlite, a pure mineral that visibly lightens complexion, while absorbing sweat and oil
  • UV filters protects from sun darkening and damage
  • Keeps your complexion looking fresh for 12 hours and feels perfect all day long even in hot, humid weather
  • Superior puff and packaging


As usual Maybelline has not mentioned the ingredients. It only says that it has Perlite which is a pure mineral with skin perfecting powers. Apart from this it has SPF28.


When I bought this it was Rs. 160 for 8 grams but now the prices have gone up. You can buy it for Rs. 175 for 8 grams.

How to use

Apply all over face and neck, with the puff provided. Blend well around the eyes along the hairline and jawline, for a naturally perfect looking complexion. I prefer using my powder brush to apply this compact!

Brand claims

12 hour fair, fresh & perfect all day long- even in hot and humid weather. SPF 28/ PA++ protect skin from both sun darkening and damage ( for intense sun exposure, use adequate sun protection)


It comes in white poofy bulky looking case. Although it looks adorable, with smooth white finish but to me it looks a bit flimsy and delicate. The package contains pressed compact powder, puff and mirror. 


Okay.. I loved the texture of Maybelline New York White Super Fresh Compact. It is so light and delicate that you cannot even feel it on your face. It gets absorbed nicely without leaving a whitish layer. The fragrance of Maybelline New York White Super Fresh Compact is very fruity floral. It is available in 4 shades- Pearl, Shell, Coral and Marble with Pearl being the lightest. You can choose the one closest to your shade. 

My Take

Overall, I loved Maybelline New York White Super Fresh Compact. It is light, refreshing and gives a smooth finish to the skin. However, the 12 hour claim is a bit too much. It does give a smooth, bright and fresh look to the skin. The matte finish lasted for about 2 hours on my face. I have normal skin with oily T-zone and I sweat too much. I tried it without my Geri G foundation to check the authenticity of the claim and it failed. 

Girls with darker skin tone might not be able to find a closest shade to their skin so I will advise them to use Marble by applying it gently with brush and not the puff. 

The puff that comes along looks cute and soft, but it can a bit stiff with product buildup very soon. As a new puff it glides smoothly on the skin. So I will advise you to use your powder brush or blush brush to apply the compact. 


  • Very travel friendly
  • Contains puff and mirror so you can use it easily for quick touch ups. 
  • Puff is soft and glides well
  • Texture is light and smooth giving a natural finish
  • Gives a whitening and brightening finish to the skin. 
  • Affordable price for this quality
  • Can control oil for about 2-3 hours, which varies where you are and what type of skin you have


  • Shades may be a limitation for darker skin tone.
  • 12 hour freshness claim does not work
  • Puff can develop product buildup over 5-6 uses. 

Over all, at this price it is a good buy. Even if you are not a compact girl, you can definitely give it a try. Share you views with me on this!

Lots of Love!!!
