Hey birdies.
  Life is much hectic for me, I am doing double duties in hospital and getting much less time for my blog. By time I will learn to manage both. So it's like I am still in phase of pocket friendly products which doesn't burn hole in my wallet. Apart from kajal, thing that's mostly everyday necessary in everyone's bag is a - Compact powder.
  As Lakme is drugstore brand and i know it since my childhood i thought to buy its most affordable compact powder that's Lakme Radiance Compact Powder in shade Natural Marble.

About the product : 
  "It's enriched with Vitamin E & C and having advanced micromesh  technology & allantoin complex, which soothes skin, gives matte finish, moisturizes and protect skin from pollution leaving behind a crystal-clear glow radiant skin."

Price : 
104 INR for 9gm.

Ingredients : 
Not mentioned.

Shelf Life : 
36 months from the date of manufacture.

My Experience : 

Packaging : 
  I love it's packaging. It comes in really beautiful maroon colour case which is much sturdy and travel friendly and shuts tightly. It's  a rectangular box i would prefer it would have been circular in shape which will be easy carry in my handbag. A mirror and sponge puff is provided inside which is quite good. The sponge is of decent quality and can be used for touch ups.

Shade and Texture : 
   The compact comes in four shades -
1. Marble
2. Pearl
3. Shell
4. Coral

I bought Natural Marble shade which suits fair to wheatish skin. The texture is smooth and bit powdery but once applied give nice matte finish. It gives good average coverage, covering my pigmentation and marks to a slight extent giving a radiant matte look. It has good staying power of 3 to 3.5 hours later on touch up is necessary as my T-zone gets oily.


Pros : 
Affordable and easily available.
Case is sturdy and travel friendly.
Good average coverage.
Mirror and sponge sponge puff is included.
Gives nice matte finish.
4 shades to choose from.

Cons : 
I would prefer a circular shape case.
Should have included more shades.
Bit powdery in texture.
Bit less staying power.

To Sum up : 
Lakme Radiance Compact Powder is much affordable and easy available which can be used daily for a matte finish radiant skin available in 4 shades to choose from.

Do I Recommend : 
   Yes!! It's a must try considering the price range.
