Product review: Maybelline clear smooth all-in-one powder in Mocha

There was so much noise about this product when it came out. So, I decided to get one for myself especially since I’ve been looking for a decent powder for a while now.

How I Use
I apply this powder with a powder brush after my foundation and concealer or just after my concealer for my go-to everyday look. It does a good job of setting my makeup whilst giving it a clean and flawless finish.

However, this lasts for only a short time. I noticed that my T-zone was rather shiny after a few hours. To be honest, I expect a longer staying powder even with my foundation and concealer. This literally put me off.

Also, I had expected to wear this powder alone in some occasions but I noticed that I had to use a foundation or even a concealer before applying it. I wish it came in a 2 – in – 1 foundation and powder combination. Would have been perfect!

All in all, it’s a pretty decent powder. I love the variety of shades available and how this particular one in Mocha blends with my skin effortlessly.
