I have been using Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-One Shine-Free Foundation for the past two months now, and so far it gratifies me much. I tried many foundations/powders before but it didn’t stay long on my face. Maybelline Clear Smooth stays for 5 hours on my face, much better than the other foundations I used. I actually layer it over my Garnier Light Complete Cream and my face looks flawless afterwards.
I bought the 9g Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-One for only PhP 249. There’s also a refill pack for only PhP 149 but I don’t like it because there’s no mirror. The advantage of the refill pack is that it is a pocket-sized foundation. There are five available shades too and I bought the natural shade. I thought it wouldn’t suit my skin tone at first because I have a fair skin. Miraculously, when I dabbed the sponge with its powder on my face, it blended exactly the same color with my skin tone.
I didn’t regret why I chose the shade ‘natural’ because I really love it when blended on my face, it just seems ‘natural’ like I’m not wearing any powder/foundation at all. What I like the most about this product is that I can retouch multiple times a day and it won’t cake, it keeps my skin matte and fresh looking all day.
Maybelline Clear Smooth has High UV Protection SPF25 which is another advantage. I can go out carefree because it can protect me from harsh sunlight and humidity. Plus, it doesn’t feel heavy on my face too.
What I don’t like about this product is that it could break easily–the packaging and the powder. I accidentally dropped it and now the part of the lid cracked, but at least not the powder. Another one is that the lasting power is only 5 hours for me and afterwards, my face turns oily again.
I recommend this for all skin types especially oily skin because Maybelline Clear Smooth is oil-free, non-comedogenic, and gentle on skin. It won’t result to skin breakouts for it doesn’t plug the pores of your skin. This is worth buying because it is not expensive and harmful when applied on the skin.
