Hey beautiholics,
                      
Hope you all are keeping well! During makeup, one of the most important part is base and finding a good and soothing product for your skin which gives full coverage and sheen at a same time to your skin is even more difficult.
Applying different products, for different purposes, layer by layer makes your skin look more cakey and gives an oily shine which is quite disappointing and annoying. Such tragedies have happened to me too! Solution to such tragedies is two way cake compacts. Two way cake compacts means that you can use the product in both the forms, that is wet as well as dry. For those who don't have any idea about such products, don't worry! You'll know it by the end of this review. :)
Weeks ago I tried MAYBELLINE NEW YORK DREAM SATIN SKIN TWO WAY CAKE SPF 32 PA+++ and trust me it worked as a savior for me! :D

My Experience : 

Packaging:- The compact itself is housed in a cardboard box with all essential details like manufacturing date, price, ingredients on an edge of the box, shade and some other description about the product. The compact is a beige peach colored box that makes it stand out in front of other compacts if you go by looks. It has curved edges from all sides which makes it simple yet classy and elegant at the same time. The compact is inbuilt with two compartments, one compartment is for compressed powder and the another once is for sponge. The sponge compartment have tiny holes at the base of the compact box that let's the sponge get dried if you used it in the wet form. It comes with a full sized mirror, that is just the double of each compartment. I must say the compact's make is eye catching, making it very attractive and impressive.

Shade:- As mentioned about maybelline new York dream satin skin two way cake is available in 6 shades. I am using B2 Soft honey shade and it suits my skin tone the best. If you also have light dusky complexion like mine, then you can surely go with this shade as it is light to medium in shade with yellow undertones.

Texture and Coverage:-
Maybelline New York dream satin skin two way cake SPF 32 PA+++ is absolutely worth it's name 'dream satin skin'. The texture of compressed powder is finely milled. The particles of powder are not loose like many other compacts which helps you save your product more and lasts longer. The texture is absolutely creamy, smooth and blends with the skin completely, leaving a flawless satin skin finish yet looking natural. It gives medium to high coverage. It covers most of the blemishes, dark spots and marks itself just in a single dab of sponge without leaving any cakey effect on your skin. It feels really light on the skin which lets your skin breathe and don't clog the pores.

One thing I loved about this product is that it contains SPF 30+ with PA+++. Most of us know that SPF is the agent that blocks harmful rays and more the number, for more time it will blocks those harmful rays which we usually find in sunscreens where PA is the new korean rating system of protection from UV rays and more the pluses, higher the protection level. Many of the dermatologists recommend to apply sunscreen before wearing make up and then after 3 hours again to remove the makeup and reapply the sunscreen but doing this in our hectic daily life, is practically not possible. Hence, this product cuts down the demand of applying sunscreen and instead another just go with another dab of compact and you're flawless.

Pigmentation and Staying Power:-
This two way cake is a boon to oily skinned women. It does not lasts for 12 hours as claimed in the description. If your are in a cool environment or in a party or at such places, it may give a great coverage for 5 to 6 hours and if used on a regular day, it may give a coverage for 3 to 4 hours. I have worn it both the ways in the picture, dry (left) as well as wet (right) on my same hand in the picture so both can be compared. Many costumers find it difficult to use this product in wet form but my opinion is, the problem is with sponge. The sponge doesn't work work good but otherwise with any other sponge dry as well as wet form, both works good for me. I find dry form slightly better for daily purposes because it blends with more ease. Going to hard on a particular area of your skin can give an ashy and unflattering look.
