Revlon Touch and Glow Moisturizing Compact Powder Review
I will review a compact which I have been using a lot these days due to its light texture and mattifying formula. It is Revlon Touch and Glow Moisturising Compact Powder. I got the shade Gold Matte. This is from there Touch and glow range. I also got their foundation but sadly it wasn't upto the expectation.
Price: This Revlon compact powder price is 415 INR for 12 g which is like huge and will last for very long time. It has a shelf life of 3 years.
About the Product: Revlon Touch & Glow Moisturising Powder
Its moisturising formula does not dry or cake-up the skin
Provides "non-powdery matte finish"
Super safe puff for a smooth application
Provides even skin tone
Ingredients: Only key ingredients are mentioned which are talc, Fragrance and Titanium dioxide. What about the rest??
Experience: I really like compacts as they are very effective in getting a matte skin look when you have oily skin. Moreover, if you are a minimum makeup person then you can wear compacts over your tinted moisturizers or BB creams which are like a rage these days. I use my Garnier BB cream most of the times and over that I use compacts to achieve a matte look. They can also be very good to set your foundation.
This Revlon touch and glow compact has a black plastic body with gold lining on the edges. It has a mirror and a powder puff inside which has two colors i.e. black on the back and white, pretty it looks !!
I like its puff as it really helps getting the product evenly on your skin and doesn’t pick too much product. It’s soft and easily washable. Yup, you should wash it after sometime or should change it as when you use it on your face, all the oil gets trapped inside it.
I find it a little difficult to open, may be due to its lock.
I got this shade in Gold matte which is a beigish color with very faint yellow undertone which makes it suitable or fair skin tone. It looks light in the pan. However, you can check your exact shade at the shop or counter as I am not sure how other shades will be? pink toned or yellow!!
I think there is a shade Earth matte for dusky skin tone.
It has a very mild fragrance or rather neglible.
It has a very light texture which isn’t chalky or drying. I like the fact that it doesn’t make my skin powdery or as if I have applied loads of or visible amount of powder.
This Compact powder will be suitable for not only oily skin but dry skin as well since it does not have a drying formula.
Here I would also like to mention that I have earlier used Lakme perfect radiance compact which was similar to this Revlon one in terms of texture and light weight formula.
So, you want something cheap and pocket friendly then you may try that as well. I will soon do a review on the Lakme compact so that you can judge and see the texture.
Overall, I would say, I really like this product. Not sure whether I will repurchase it or not as it will last for long. By the way this pack was at a discount of 50 Rs off.
In the swatch below i intentionally applied more so as to show you how it blends and the texture afterwards.
Okay so time to sum up the pros and cons of this Revlon Touch and Glow Compact:
