Maybelline Matte Maker

Hello beauties,

Oh superdrug, how you entice me with your gorgeous shelves stocked endlessly with beauty lovers goodness. I haven't really been able to pick up little treats like this for a while as I've recently moved and money is precious when you've got bills to pay however, a few things really intreged me with this item and it was straight in the basket! 

I think this product is fairly new as I've not seen it mentioned anywhere, or even seen it while browsing for the essentials. The first thing that drew me to this powder is the colour! Hello none yellow toned powder for pale skin! This one is called 'Classic Ivory' and in terms of colour match for my fair skin this is perfection. 

The Powder is encased in a twist off lid plastic compact which I also really like, when they come attached I find I always break the lid off and then loose it resulting in a massive mess. It feels sturdy and durable which is also good it's also a impressive size probably the same as the collection or rimmel matte face powders.

When applied it's holding powder is fantastic, I applied my make-up at 11am in the morning and it was still there when I got home at 7.30pm after a strenuous shift at work. It also gave a lovely matte look no visible shine(although I must add my skin doesn't get 'shiny' make up just tends to slip off due to oils). The only problems I have with this is the powder is so finely milled so it provides a lot less coverage then I would like but it does 'diffuse' any imperfections, another thing I would like to add is it needs to be used with care, not much or it can look a little chalky it also settled in the creases under my eyes which I've never experienced before.

Overall I think this is a winner winner chicken dinner! If your looking for matte perfect make-up this is definitely the one for you it also has an amazing price tag of only £3.99! I'll take four please! Don't hold me to this but I think it also comes in 3-4 different shades so there should be something to keep everyone happy! 

What's your favourite face powder?


  1. WOw! Sounds like an awesome product!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I keep seeing this but I normally dislike Maybelline's foundations so I steered clear. May have to have a nose, I'm in need of a new powder!
