This is how the story begins.
Maybelline had just launnched its new collection (2012) of pressed powders and foundations . While i was dyinggg to get my hands on one of them i couldn't do so as i was stuck in Bihar and the humidity was killing me. Everytime i went out my face ended up looking like a drop of oil!

That's when i saw one of my bffs using this product and i ordered it from her. Ever since then this has been my HG matte control pressed powder.

PACKAGE- the matte powder comes in a deep purple package with a mirror when flipped open and a really soft sponge applicator (which i really like). Though sometimes i use it with my basicare powder brush after applying my foundation .Other than that , there is nothing extra ordinary about the package. Yes, it is travel friendly .In fact this one is always in my bag .

SHADE- i got the one for Light/Medium. this one is best suited for my skin tone as i am NC 25.It blends jsut as my second skin .

See how it blends right into my skin shade? :)
TEXTURE- it is very light and smooth. I feel no heaviness on application and i don't feel like my pores are choking!
Doesn't cause breakouts.
Is non comedogenic.
Gives a good matte finishing.
Ideal for oily to combination skin types.

FRAGRANCE- it has a mild flowery fragrance which i really like. But for those who doesn't like the smell , thats alright since it doesn't linger .

COVERAGE- Provides light coverage. i like it for its mattifying properties . if you're looking for medium to heavy coverage , then this one is not for you.

CON' shades
2. it doesn't stay on for too long so it needs a lot of touch ups.


PRICE Rs.429/- or something like that :p
(i got it at Rs.400 from my friend yay!!!)


Will i repurchase?umm..... i'm thinking of getting the new Maybelline matte control pressed powder if i run out of this one.
