This compact it TOOoo cute for words. It is smaller than I expected but I think that's what gives this compact it's charm. It's about the size of a walnut but as thin and flat as an eyeshadow container (like the singles Maybelline makes) and it has a cute black latch. "Maybe Baby" is spelled out in cursive in a pink shimmery ink on the lid. The pressed powder is a lovely angelic nude with the *teeniest* hint of shimmer. You don't even see the shimmer once applied, unless you were to hold your arm about an inch from your face and concentrate intensely for a minute. The pressed powder is velvety soft and blends away so you can't even see it. And since it's pressed it doesn't make a mess all over the compact or migrate from the compact to your shirt, table, get the idea. To apply, I simply swipe one finger over the surface and apply to my wrists, back of neck, and behind my ears, swiping only a few times altogether. I can instantly smell the fresh sweet scent that makes "Maybe Baby" so well-loved. The top/middle notes are Apricot, White Ginger, Fresh Water Blossoms, Himalayan Poppy, Warm Peach. And there is no dry-down with this powder, which is a huge plus b/c for some the dry-down of the perfume turned stomachs. You can ONLY get this little gem at Sephora for $12 (now we're talking girls!), or on Swap and possibly Ebay. According to the website, " Now you can dust the soft, playful scent of Maybe Baby anywhere you dare, thanks to this compact filled with luxuriously scented, pressed powder. " My final take : It's a cinch to dust it on your decolletage (snazzy word eh?), shoulders, neck, wrist or wherever you want the sparkling, flirtatious scent of "Maybe Baby" , even while on the go. It's tiny and descreet and super easy to port around in your handbag or cosmetic bag and it smells heavenly. BONUS > The boyfriend LUVS it :)
