Maybelline New York Shine Free Loose Powder Review

by - Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I've tried out a quite a few powders over the years in hopes that they would help set my foundation and mattify my skin, preventing or at least, reducing shine.

My skin at times can be quite oily, and it has been difficult to find a combination of products that help to control oil production and target oil prone areas.

This problem is especially embarrassing during Summer. Sweat and foundation leave my face looking like an oil slick, and it's a real confidence stealer. After a couple of hours of foundation wear, I look like I've just stepped out of a sauna.

So I thought I'd give this powder a shot. I had high hopes for this product, and yet it is one of the many that has failed to impress.

For me, this powder didn't keep shine at bay. I actually think it added to the problem. The only thing it seemed to do was clog my skin up more.

The thing I liked about this product? The packaging. The pot that the powder was in was very practical, and I liked that it came with a sponge, which allowed for hassle free touch ups throughout the day. It's definitely a handbag convenience, so, full points for packaging.

Since trying this powder, I have experimented with several other foundations and products and have found a solution for my oil prone skin. I've had much success with other products that the use of a loose powder now seems unnecessary.
