Maybelline Shine Free® Oil-Control Loose Powder
- "gives a lovely matte finish- use with a really big brush and dab on! makes me feel more confident s oil is definitely reduced" in 125 reviews
I ran out of my bare minerals foundation and was looking for a cheaper foundation to use in the meantime. I chose this product because the loose powder appeals to me. I liked the fact that there weren't a million shades to try to match (I selected medium). The size of this product as well as price were aslo selling points. Unfortunately I was not impressed with this product. First off, this product is packaged poorly. The lid is flimsy and doesn't feel secure which is a major problem being as loose powder can be extremely messy if spilled. Coverage was minimal at best. I don't really have acne but the few blemishes I did have were not reduced at all. I had high hopes for this product but it did not meet my expectations and I will likely return.
This has always been my holy grail I don't even know if they sell it anymore but they might since I'm writing this review lmao! But I haven't seen it near me, it's a little thick but I've always loved this powder I like to mix two together cause ones always too light and ones always too dark and it's hard to tell the colors when you buy them. Definitely love this product
I use this to bake my under eye concealer and oiler spots on my face. It's a light powder that makes my under eyes perfectly matte and pore less. It's great to use with a brush or damp beauty sponge. It never looks cakey and sets my foundation and concealer for hours. Don't have to use much to get your desired look.
I LOVE the Maybelline Shine Free - Loose Oil Control Loose Powder! It is a staple in my daily routine. I have pretty oily, fair skin and this product leaves me with a matte finish all day! You get quite a lot of product, I've had mine for quite some time. If my face is having a good day, I can use this product by itself and my skin looks perfect. If I'm more splotchy I like to use it with a BB as a finishing powder. TOTALLY RECOMMEND!
I have really oily skin so I was looking for something to keep the oil in check I say this and thought I'd give it a try. It's not the worst product but if you keep layering this on your face all day it looks cakey af! So use with caution or if you have nice skin I recommend you use this alone without foundation
I have been using this product on and off since I was in high school. I have very oily skin and this always helps me to keep the shine undercontrol and have a fresh look right away. Only reason I don't give the 5 stars is because if the shade which for me was a lot darker than what it looks but once you buy the first one you can go from there and fins out what shade is best for you.
Review for: Light more...
I actually really like the powder. I purchased in the shade light 01, and it is a nice product that is affordable. My problem is with the container. It is not travel friendly or even makeup bag friendly. The top is not secure and can come loose if it is in a bag or luggage. So my E.L.F. Powder travels with me since it has a screw on lid and this one stays home. If the packaging were improved I would be much happier with the product.
This is my number one go to, always! I continue to restock on it and I always recommend it! It's light weight, and takes away all traces of oil and shine. It's great as a light dusting on makeup free days, a good touch up powder, and an excellent setting powder over foundation. It's also under $5, so that's the best part!
I bought this product because I was tired of my aurspun loose powder and I love this one so much more. It has great coverage and doesn't make me look cakey. And it keeps my oil controlled throughout the day. I use the shade "Light." I recommend this loose powder. I love it! I use it for baking btw.
Q & A
My skin is so oily I need to know if this really helps and works before I purchase?
Has anyone tried this? I'm looking for a loose powder because I'm extremely oily and my skin is always super shiny throughout the day
I LOVE how this covers and seals my makeup, BUT I always seem to get powder on people when I hug them. Is there a way to keep the coverage I love, yet not stain people's clothes? Thanks!
Does it give good coverage
Where you guys get this product? Is it really oil control?
