EB Advance BB Compact Powder Review - My Favorite Powder from Ever Bilena

My EB Advance BB Compact Powder review video was posted a few years ago at the PinayBeautyAndStyle YouTube channel and I don't know why I never created a written review for it at the blog. Maybe because it's been such a staple in my kikay kit that I simply kept on putting it off. Anyway today is finally the day that I'll post a written review for the EB Advance BB Flawless Whitening Compact Powder from Ever Bilena Advance

EB Advance BB Compact Powder Review - My Favorite Powder from Ever Bilena



What is the EB Advance BB Flawless Whitening Compact Powder?


The EB Advance BB Compact Powder is a BB cream in powder form, It is available in 2 shades and has been part of the brand's line up of products for about 4 years or more. I've been using the product since 2016 and I truly reach out for this when it is especially hot outside despite having expensive powders to choose from. That says a lot!

The current formula is paraben-free and cruelty-free if I am not mistaken. I still have the older versions because I hoarded a year ago.


Unlike other Ever Bilena powders, EB Advance BB Compact doesn't feel like a dry powder. Yes. it is a powder but it has a more buttery feel to it than the Ever Bilena Powder Foundation and the EB Advance Two Way Cake which are drier in feel.


When I first tried this powder, it retailed for around P200 but now it retails for P275. There are no refills in physical stores and as mentioned earlier, there are only 2 shades available, matte natural and matte oriental


This powder is meant to be applied dry but I find that I can get away with applying this with a wet sponge too to get even better coverage.


Matte Natural is a neutral fair shade and Matte Oriental is a medium toned yellow shade. Coverage can range from sheer to full coverage depending on application technique and whether you use the EB Advance BB Compact powder on its own or if you use it as a mattifying powder on top of liquid foundation or BB cream.

I have to say that the formula wears really well in Philippine humid weather and can last the whole day if properly blotted and reapplied. For the record, I have oily combination skin, with dry cheeks and oily t-zone. 


Applied as a powder, the coverage is medium but can be sheered out or layered to achieve the coverage that you want.

look how nicely the swatches blended out

I think that the best part about the EB Advance BB Flawless Whitening Compact Powder is how well it blends on the skin. It is very forgiving when it comes to pores, skin texture, and blemishes.

EB Advance BB Compact Powder Review Summary


This is my favorite Ever Bilena Powder. I always make it a point to buy both shades so I can mix depending on my skin tone and whether I have a tan or not. 

  • Value for money 5/5
  • Coverage 5/5 because very versatile
  • Wear test 5/5 because can last the whole day and no clumping on retouch
  • Shade range 4/5 because you need both shades unless one of them is your exact shade match. I hope they create more shades
  • Scent 4/5 typical makeup scent
  • Ease of use 5/5 very user-friendly


Overall score 4.5/5



By the way, there is a sponge compartment underneath the powder so even if you use the sponge wet, it will not ruin the powder. The underside also has holes so your makeup sponge can dry fully.
