Maybelline Clear Smooth all-in-one Powder Foundation in Honey

Be shine-free for hours with Maybelline

A lot of women who have oily skin are constantly searching for a foundation that will not fail them. For women and girls with this skin type, putting on makeup can be counter-productive.


There are lots of foundations on the market that promise to keep oil at bay, but not all of them live up to their promises. If there is one product that can keep its promise, it’s usually not pocket friendly!



Maybelline understands oily skin types, so they have released the Maybelline clear smooth all-in- one powder foundation. Here are some pros and cons for this product:


The pros


  • It controls oil on the skin really well. It may not last as much as what it says in the package, but it keeps oil at bay twice as long as some other popular oil-control foundations.


  • It does not cause break-outs. Most oil-control foundations can lodge in the skin pores and cause pimples. That is not the case with Maybelline.


  • It doesn’t cake, even if you reapply layer after layer, it will still not look cakey.

The cons

  • The drawback of this product is that it can oxidize on acidic skin. In order to avoid having a dark face after wearing this for a long period, a primer should be applied beforehand. Another option is to choose a color that is one shade lighter than your skin-tone so that by the time it oxidizes, it will still match the color of your natural skin.

All in all, this is a good foundation that is worth trying, and it’s priced well relative to other similar products available.
