Given that we live in a perpetually humid climate, we all need and want sweat-free makeup that lasts all day so that we don’t look like a hot mess especially when we have to rush from one venue to another for meetings and appointments. That’s where Maybelline White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder SPF34 PA+++ comes in handy with its key ingredient, Perlite. Perlite has 5x talc’s absorption to soak up sweat and oil for 12 hours.
How does this powder work to stay on all day? At first application, the powder absorbs and even entraps sweat and sebum. I used Maybelline White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder SPF34 PA+++ in 03 Natural which should be the fairest shade available. It has an instant matte effect and eliminates shine.
This powder isn’t cakey, it’s easy to blend in with the powder puff and evens out my skin tone making my skin look less yellowish. Coverage is medium and it manages to cover up my dark spots quite well. Despite a particularly hot day, the powder stayed put all day so it really does work like a blotter.
Maybelline White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder SPF34 PA+++ retails at RM23.90/9g. Refill packs are RM11.90.
