Hi, girls!We all know how important a compact face powder is important for all of us, especially when it’s summers and sticky monsoon with so much humidity. Certain foundations mix up with our face sweat, making skin oily. In those cases, a face powder comes to rescue. Though I use L’Oreal Paris Mat Magique foundation in summers which are super amazing, still one needs a touch-up after 5-6 hours. For this, I rely on this Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Two Way Cake Foundation. Let us now discuss its pros and cons.
Price: Rs 575
My Experience with Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Two-Way Cake Foundation
The face powder comes in a cream-colored small cardboard box. The compact is two-way; the sponge is placed apart from the foundation. This way, the powder doesn’t smudge all over the compact.
The texture is satin and creamy in nature. It settles to a matte finish; thus, becoming a boon for oily skin people as well as a reliable option for this season.
I chose B2 Soft Honey which is medium fair. There are 6 shades available to choose from.
The overall effect stays for 4-5 hours whether or not you come in contact with the sun.
Well, because my skin is oily, I loved how this face powder performed since the day I bought it. Earlier I was using the compact by Lakme which was good but not suitable for my oily skin. After using this, I found less oil exposure on my skin. Also, SPF 32+ protected my skin from direct sun exposure. The foundation is creamy and very thin which makes the overall finish less dramatic and very natural.
But it sometimes gets cakey. Also, it has to be used dry and not wet which is a big con here because I like to use face powder in wet form. But, yeah, I found no need of using it in wet form because of its overall natural finish.
I loved the overall performance of Maybelline Two-Way Cake. It is best to fit for daily purpose and requires touch-up after 4 hours according to your skin type. And yes. It is not for dry skin people as your skin may become patchy. Also, say no to use it in wet form.

Would I repurchase or recommend it?
