Maybelline Clear Glow Compact in Nude Beige 02 did not impress me much

What I felt about Maybelline Clear Glow Compact
It indeed took me a very long time in reviewing the Maybelline compact. I was happy at first, but then, something was amiss which I could not point out.

When I first tried it, the first issue was that, the shade was a bit light for me. It's in the shade Nude beige 02. I
think I ought to have gone for Pure Beige or something darker like Fawn. Don't know.

Texture and how I apply:
It comes in a nice packgaging . There's a sponge on one side which is of good quality. There is also a large mirror which is pretty useful. And, the powder is finely milled. The powder goes over matte. It goes over rather a bit too matte if you apply with the sponge. I have applied it with a powder brush and also with my Bourjois Kabuki. it works the best with the kabuki.
With sponge it layers on too much. With a kabuki, it blends into the skin and gives a very natural and beautiful finish.

And what I found later?
After an hour or so, my skin becomes very oily. it, in no way prevents the oil even though it feels so matte at first.

After a few hours, when I checked in the mirror, I was shocked! The powder, along with the oil was looking CAKEY!!! I hated it!

I have worn it several times. And I do keep blotting throughout the day. This explains why even though I have had it for such a long time, I have used so little.

I intend to wear it as a setting powder in the winters when my skin is extrmely dry.

Overall, this is one product from Maybelline I am not going to repurchase. I would neither recommend it to my readers.

At about 170 Rupees, everything is good except for the product. :(

Duh! I know many of you love it. But did you happen to notice the same?
