Best Uses

Comments about Maybelline Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder:

I use this powder to set my foundation or concealer and within two hours, I have to apply it again! Barely gives me any coverage. No shine control at all. Only pro is that its easy to apply and easy to blend. You get what you paid for.

Only Makeup that Doesn't Irritate my Skin

Pros

  • Buildable Coverage
  • Controls Shine
  • Easy To Apply
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Doesn't stay in place
  • Messy

Best Uses

  • Acne Prone Skin
  • Oily Skin
  • Sensitive Skin

Comments about Maybelline Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder:

Trust me, I've tried LOTS of makeup products, ranging from mineral powders to liquid foundations, all which caused me more breakouts and irritated skin. So I decided to try Maybelline, since their powder has minimal ingredients and controls shine. It goes on my skin well and the light shade matches my skin tone. It is noncomedogenic so it is great for my skin type. The only thing is that you may have to reapply because by the end of the day, the makeup fades away.

Comments about Maybelline Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder:

This is a classic for a reason. It was the first powder I ever bought. A lot of folks swear by Coty's Airspun, but this works better for me, and it doesn't have that baby powder smell. It's been around forever, and it's never changed.

      Comments about Maybelline Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder:

      I bought this because I was wanting to try something new but I didn't want to spend so much money, because I use Bare Minerals, and have for 10 years without a problem whatsoever, but like i said, I was looking for a little variety.
      Well, I applied this after my Bare Minerals Serum Foundation, and I loved the way it looked on my cheeks, made them soft and smooth, but on my nose it made my pores very visible and my dry skin very very dry (probably due to that it is matte, I know, realized it was matte as I was applying the product. Anyways, I liked it except on my nose.
      As the day went by, I checked myself on my car mirror and I looked cakey, dry, chalky and patchy. It didn't set my foundation right and it looked like it had a lot less coverage than normal.
      My usual face routine is Bare Minerals Serum Foundation, followed by Bare Minerals Original Powder Foundation and then Bare Minerals Mineral Veil and the results are amazing coverage, and it doesn't cake at all or dry my skin. So my new product trial had a lot to compete with.
      I gave it two stars because I did like how my cheeks looked at first, but hated that the look didn't last.

            A:

            Hi Chris! We are sorry to hear this. As consumers ourselves, we understand how disappointing it can be when an old favorite is no longer available. We're sorry for the inconvenience. In the Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder, there are two shades that it comes in: Light & Medium. You can choose which powder best suits your skin tone. We hope this helps!

            A:

            Hi Abigal! That is a good question. We have not tested this product for baking, but do believe it has the qualities in order to do so. This product is a 100% oil-free and keeps skin fresh, clean, and shine-free for hours. This lightweight powder glides on evenly for a smooth, flawless, and matte finish. We hope this helps!

        • Q:

          Do I put it on before or after I put my makeup on? And does it come with a puff or do I have to get one separately?

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            The Shine Free Oil-Control Loose Powder is perfect for a fresh, matte, and shine-free finish.
            For best results use puff included with compact;
            Step 1. Touch puff to powder and shake gently to avoid excess powder.
            Step 2. Apply puff lightly over face.
            Step 3. Use puff to blend and whisk away any loose powder.
            Step 4. Wear alone or over makeup.
