Sorry for late post as I was travelling. I’ll be a bit irregular for couple of days more as I’m out of town for my best friend’s wedding. Anyways today’s post is about Lakme Radiance Complexion Compact. Compact is one regular base makeup product in my vanity. I skip concealers, foundation/BB/CC creams most of the times and just rely on compact for natural coverage and for days when I have sleep deprived eyes I go for concealer and compact over it. So I keep experimenting with different compacts and today I’m here with review of Lakme Radiance Complexion Compact.

Pearl and Marble will suit fair to medium skin tones and Shell & coral are apt for dusky skin tones.
My Experience with Lakme Radiance Complexion Compact:
Lakme Radiance Complexion Compact comes in a maroon plastic sturdy packaging with mirror on lid and a soft sponge applicator housed inside. Packaging is travel friendly and the mirror and sponge included are good for touch-ups.
Texture & Coverage:
While swatching product using my fingers I felt the texture is chalky but on application it blends into skin and does not look or feel chalky at all. My skintone varies between NC30-35 and pearl is perfect match for my skin. Coverage is sheer to medium and due to this it gives natural finish. Check out the Swatch:
Lakme Radiance Complexion Compact is super light weight and when applied, it doesn’t leave powdery cast on skin and does not cling to dry patches. It instantly mattifies my combination skin and keep the oil at bay for good 4-5 hours which is impressive for a compact with such a low price tag. I like that it gives natural finish to my skin and even with pink undertones in it, it does not highlight my pink undertones. Overall I totally love it.
What I like:
- Natural coverage.
- Non-powdery finish.
- No cast and does not emphasize dry patches.
- Keeps combination skin oil free for 4-5 hours.
- Neutralize pink undertones.
- Comes with mirror and sponge(Good enough).
- Dirt cheap.
- Online available at discounted price(most of the time).
What I do not like:
- Limited shades.
- Full ingredients missing.
Final Verdict: 4.5/5
At this price tag it is surely a winner for me. I say girls give it a try. Try 2 shades to find your perfect match and If you find your shade match, it is one of the best budget friendly compacts available in India.
Repurchase: Yes. Already repurchased several times.
