Recent Purchase: Maybelline Pure Pact Healthy Perfecting UV Compact Foundation

Hello everyone! Just thought I'd share my most recent makeup purchase from Maybelline. I know I haven't blogged in quite a while. Graduate school is so so much more crazy than college EVER was. 
Anyways, I recently ran out of mineral powder foundation so I thought I'd try out a drugstore mineral makeup product for a change. Of course, I ended up getting one from Maybelline. I don't know why but I always have a soft spot for Maybelline when it comes to drugstore makeup. 

I bought the Maybelline Pure Pact Mineral Healthy Perfecting UV Compact Foundation with SPF 30.

I think that mineral foundation in compact form is really hard to come across among drugstore brands so I was really glad when I found out that Maybelline's mineral makeup line finally offers compact foundation. Like I've said before, I find loose mineral makeup so very inconvenient since they tend to get all messy.

You have to buy the foundation (refill) and the compact case separately. I had no problems with this though since I find the compact case very elegant-looking. 
The foundation shade that I got is BO2.

I was a little confused with their shade selection though. I haven't tried this product on yet so I'm hoping I got the right shade.
Some more pictures of the product:

The foundation refill comes with a free sponge.
I love the engraving on the powder.

I'll have to test this product out for a few times before I give it a proper review, and I'm not gonna lie, really excited to try it out!

All for now. Thank you for reading and I hope you're having a great day! :)


  1. Looking forward to the review! :)

  2. Definitely! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. Would love to read that review :)

  4. Sure thing Wonder Woman!

  5. where did you buy this?

  6. Hi, these are available at Watsons :)

  7. I read in your previous posts that you used to use Bare Minerals. I do too! Thing is, I ran out of stock. I bought mine in LA. So, I was wondering where you order Bare Minerals here in the Philippines(that's if you ordered your MMU here!). I really do hope to hear from you! THANKS.

    PS I recently bought Maybelline Pure Pact Healthy Perfecting UV Compact Foundation too since I ran out of Bare Minerals! How did this turn out for you? I'm pretty worried since I have awfully sensitive skin. Hope it doesn't break me out!

  8. Hi Nikki. Yes, I used to use the Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil. I ordered mine from but if you're a bit wary about ordering online, they've also got a store at Rockwell Powerplant. :) However, the last time I ordered was two years ago so I'm not sure whether things have changed since then. I suggest you contact the person who handles the store at
    I hope this helped! :)

    By the way, I don't think I can help you much with my opinion of the Maybelline Pure Pact Foundation since I don't have sensitive skin and I honestly rarely get any breakouts from any products. Sorry! I do hope it works out well for you!
