Today’s review is going to be on the Maybelline Clear Glow Compact Powder. I have had this powder compact for a long time now and it was tucked away in my drawers. It was high time that I reviewed this product I gave this quite a few tries desperately trying to make it work but nah ah. It just won’t work on me so I gave up on this. Read on to find out what I think of the Maybelline Clear Glow Compact Powder!

    The Maybelline Clear Glow Compact Powder comes in a pale lilac plastic packaging which is pretty simple and travel friendly. Though it looks cheap but for a product that is less than 200 INR, I’m not complaining. Under the lid is where a mirror is housed that comes in handy for on the go touch ups and also a square sponge applicator is provided.

    The Maybelline Clear Glow Compact Powder is available in 5 shades and while they may be a match for some, a lot of people (including me) will have to get the nearest shade match which is very annoying. The variant I had chosen is the shade Natural which is supposed to match medium skin tones. The shades as all drugstore products has a strong pink undertone to it which looks garish once blended. The powder is finely milled and the application is very easy with a few dabs of it on the face with the help of the sponge applicator or just a brush.

    The Maybelline Clear Glow Compact Powder evens out my skin and helps to mattify it. It feels lightweight on the skin and controls sebum to an extent but on the downside it does tend to leave a whitish cast because of the SPF in it. There is nothing special about this powder compact I like the Maybelline White Fresh range of compact as they have more yellow undertones to it even though there are only 5 shade variants. I recommend you to give this one a try if you are on a tight budget as this one of the affordable drugstore powder compacts that is also easily available nearly everywhere in India but if you are willing to spend more, then check out the Sleek MakeUP Suede Effect Pressed Powder.

      Shade selection seems to be a big issue with most brands available in India. Wish they’ll launch more deeper shades.

        Drugstore brands need to know their customers.
