I’ve always been hunting for an effective sweat absorbent (powder) since I have oily skin from the sweat that I experience on my face. I tried different things to combat it (I have an oily to combo skin type) like using a powder without a liquid foundation (as a base) and wearing a liquid foundation without setting powder. Some of the techniques I tried were effective but the result was still not very convincing, especially since I always want to improve my skin.
So now I’m trying Maybelline WSF to see if it works for me and I did an experiment + took pictures to show you convincing evidence hehehe. See the pictures below and don’t forget to read the captions ha? ?
The set I got comes with three additional powders that I was able to test and compare with the Maybelline WSF. It also comes with an empty spray bottle to fill with water. What is the water for? Good question! Well, you’re going to spray the face powders with it to see which one would absorb sweat better.
After spraying them, I applied them on my face for coverage testing. I applied the Maybelline WSF powder first and it felt very light in terms of weight on my face. It’s not cakey looking and I love how the shade really suits my skin color. Then I did half-face comparisons with the other brands of powder.
There isn’t much difference between the powder comparisons except for them looking a little ashy (brands X, Y, Z).
After wearing the Maybelline White SuperFresh powder for 12 hours (no touch-ups) I still noticed some visible oiliness but this time only in the area of my nose. I still looked fresh and the small amount of moisture on my face made my skin look more radiant.
