The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind The Perfector Powder* claims“Pressed powder and smoothing primer resurface and perfect skin, while adding a touch of radiance for a younger looking skin instantly.”
First thing’s first. This packaging was made with the in-the-purse, on-the-go type of girl in mind. The powder is on one side and there’s a mirror and sponge conveniently placed on the other. Also, I tried the “drop test” out to see how if the powder would break, and it didn’t!
When I tried this out on my arm, I saw shimmers and immediately got irked. I don’t quite understand why cosmetics companies think glitters and shimmers are equivalent to “radiance” in products. In general, seeing shimmer in a product bothers me.
Despite the shimmers, they aren’t actually visible on the face (sorry for the false alarm). I tried the colour Fair 10 which you’d think would be much too light for me. However, it turns out this powder is quite sheer, almost translucent. The powder has a mattifying effect that’s not too matte or cakey and makes my skin look super smooth.
Not that I need any “age rewinding” (I’m only 19) but this powder was a hit for me. It’s got great packaging features and the luminous matte finish that this powder offers is perfect for transitioning your makeup from summer to fall.
