What do I love about Maybelline products?
Well, aside from the fact that my love for makeup started when I was in college and I would stalk Maybelline counter at SM Sta. Mesa (then Centerpoint)?

These products are very affordable and they deliver!
So yes, you and expect some raves for this particular post!

I recently missed the Maybelline White SuperFresh event because mommyhood comes first!  But thanks to the Maybelline PH team for still sending me not only a test product but also MORE for my dear AMW friends to try!  YAY!

This is the newest powder foundation from Maybelline New York that promises to keep your face fresh and matte for up to 12 long hours!  White Super Fresh is the name!  And I got it in shade Natural which is a perfect shade for me!

Maybelline White Super Fresh Cake Powder says ---
White Superfresh Long-Lasting Cake Powder comes with a unique Clean Touch Powder System and an SPF 34 PA+++ that leaves behind an ultra-smooth surface on your skin.

Available in four shades – 02 Nude Beige, 03 Natural, 04 Honey and 05 Sand Beige.

Why You'll Love It:
- 5X the absorption of talc
- Clean touch technology for a fresh feel
- Long lasting UV protection
- Keeps you flawless and shine-free for 12 hours


AMW says ---
  • Comes with refill.
  • The sponge that comes with the packaging is nice and made of good quality.
  • Has a good coverage.
  • Can be used both wet and dry.
  • Has a good oil-control.
  • Makeup does feel fresh ALL DAY.  (for normal and combination skin).
  • For very oily skin, less retouching as compared to regular powder foundation. 
  • Has a matte finish - I love matte finish powder foundation.
  • Very smooth texture.
  • Has SPF34 PA+++
  • No caking.  Skin looks amazingly fresh.
  • Can cover minor darkness and redness.
  • Thankfully, this powder did not cause skin dryness.  I have extremely dry skin and this works!  So this product works for ALL skin types.
  • Price!

  •  If you purchase the wrong shade, there could be white cast on photos.
  • Shades, not much choices for darker complexion.
  • Packaging.  Some may find this okay but some likes smaller and more compact powder foundation packaging.
A matte, medium to full coverage powder foundation that indeed gives at least 8 hour freshness.


  • Cannot stress further, WASH the sponge at least once a week!
  • For light coverage, apply dry.  For heavier coverage, spritz your sponge or brush with water and apply.
  • To keep the skin from looking dull and "flat", contour and highlight after powder foundation application.
  • Apply with dabbing motion on areas that needed extra coverage.
  • If you perspire or you feel like you're oiling up, dab with a clean tissue paper or an oil-blotting sheet and you'll look fresh as newly retouched.
  • If you want to try this product for FREE, JOIN my giveaway! :D
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Oily, combination and normal skin users. 

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Maybelline counters for Php299.00 (approx $6.95).



PR team sent me The Fresh Test kit!  All I need to do is spritz with water on Brand X and Maybelline White Super Fresh.

I actually did a whole lot of spritzing 

 As seen, the Brand X did not absorb the water while Maybelline did it perfectly!  And after this "spritz test", I am happy to announce that the powder is still good as new!  I am actually using this tester product and it works just as fine making it a legit Cake Powder (a product that can be used both wet and dry).

 Before and After
I applied using a flat Kabuki Brush!
Check out it evens out my skin and covers darkness around the eyes and red spots on my cheeks and sides of the nose.

  1. I'm into minimal retouching or it would be better if no retouch at all! :D
    anyway, who doesn't need 12 hour freshness? right? :)

    Because I work for 9 hours a day and commutes back and forth for 4 hours. The only time I have to refresh is during lunch break. And having a 12 hour of freshness will absolutely be convenient for me!!!

  3. Russelle Roque

    This will keep me looking fresh for work when I need to work 8hrs straight plus 1 hour commute back and forth. I have oily skin so this is a great time saver for mer!

  4. Why do I need 12 hours of Freshness?

    Simply because I'm the kind of person who hates retouching, even though I tend to really sweat. I also don't like to carry a lot of makeup on my purse, I tend to carry small purses and the only product I like reapplying is my current lip colour. So keeping my face fresh for 12 hours would be a great help and also this would be a nice addition to my collection.

    12-hour freshness to hide all the stress away! :))

  9. Hi Ms. Nikki, I'm always busy at work and I have less or no time to do touch-ups, with my profession being in Public Service, I face a lot of people on a daily basis, so I want to look fresh and presentable always and I think the new Maybelline White Super Fresh powder foundation will help me achieve that fresh all day with no touch ups look.😊

  10. I actually need to be fresh looking for more than 12 hours. It is because I work in the kitchen and you at least know that we are exposed to extreme heat and cold, standing all day and night, serving and presenting as if there's no end to our duty. It's really tough especially being the only woman in the workplace to wear makeup unless you want to be a "candle mascot." I have searched the vast beauty industry to find the "friend" who won't let me down and keep up to its promise. Hope to try this one. (^...^)

  34. Name: Jacky Lou Orinion

    I need 12 hours of freshness because i' m always chasing and running after my hyperactive pre-schooler. My oily skin plus sweat equals haggardness to highest level. I also have a lot of blemishes that needs to be covered up. This product will help me look fresh all day, everyday.

  35. Name: Keren Crispe

    I'm a teenage female nursing student living in a tropical country. During weekdays(weekends even), I'm a very busy bee and I don't usually have the time to touch up coz research papers, class, hospital duty, study study study. Even though I really love makeup and I wear it 7 days a week, I don't think the makeup look I did on mornings ever lasted until afternoon, solely due to the fact that I have very oily skin and I sweat very easily, and I eventually would look like.. well.. a mess. With the 12 hours of freshness that Maybelline Superfresh promises to give, I definitely think this product would be worth the try. Who knows, this might be the answer to my demise!

  36. Anya Mendoza

    I have a busy schedule and I'm always on the go so looking fresh for 12 hours is definitely must.

  37. Joyce co

    I work with kids from 9-6 everyday, I don't have time to touch up anymore. I allot 15minutes tops every morning for makeup and hair, then I am good to go.
    My day is really jampacked from morning to evening. Even so, I am happy and passionate with what I do, keber na the haggardo versoza look. Hehe! I need this because it will last me 12hours and will keep me from looking oily, giving me freshness vibe :)

  38. Janessa Anne Louise Pablo

    (sorry, I forgot to include those. Hope my entry is still valid! :*)

  39. Dory Mendoza

    I need 12 hour freshness using this product so that I can still look younger and smoother even how stressful the day is. As a mom, I often don't have enough time to retouch and take good care of myself and I think Maybelline can help me alot
