Lakme Radiance Compact Review in Natural marble


Lakme Radiance Compact in Natural marble

Hi all!!

I will review this very inexpensive and still decent product from Lakme. It is Lakme radiance Compact in the shade natural Marble. Lakme was the first brand I used, when it comes to compact, foundation or eyeliners. I guess it was for most of us. :D
I recently repurchased it though my Revlon touch and glow compact is doing a great job. I purchased it, simply because I wanted to have it again.This Lakme compact is even cheaper than their perfect radiance compact, which is really popular when it comes to budget makeup. It costs 104 INR. It contains 9gms of product in the pan and has a shelf life of 36 months.
I have this shade natural marble which is meant for fair to wheatish skin but I think it is more for the fair skin.

This Lakme Radiance compact comes in their regular brownish maroon packaging with an inbuilt mirror, a sponge powder puff.  The packaging has been changed a little bit as compared to the older ones.  The actual product is a bit chalky, the powder I mean. But when applied on the skin, it doesn’t  look cakey, chalky, just blends in the skin. This shade matches my skin tone perfectly and helps making my skin matte.

I keep it in my clutch and the Revlon compact in my handbag so, that when in hurry, I should not waste time in transferring the makeup products or the small pouch I keep my makeup products in my bag. I have used it a lot of time and even before this pack, I have used 2-3 pans of this product. Therefore, I can say that it hasn’t break me out yet and I have combination skin. I have not tried the perfect radiance one but have heard a lot of good things may be I will try that too and yes the Rimmel London stay matte is also in my list of products that I have to try. :D

You can see the swatch below, when blended it doesn’t feel chalky.

It’s really good for the oily to combination skin but not for dry skin as I think compact are to mattify the skin and for dry skin they aren’t that necessary. Let me know what you think.

Pros and cons of Lakme radiance compact
Pros:
  • Very easily available
  • Very cheap and affordable
  • Good for people looking for makeup on budget.
  • Doesn’t feel heavy on the skin
  • Doesn’t look chalky
  • Absorbs oils and mattifies the skin
  • Available in 4 shades
Cons:
  • Only 3 shades to choose from. I haven’t seen a shade that can suit the duskier skin tones, in this range.
  • Ingredients list not given.
  • may not control oil for a longer time 
These were the only cons/pros that I could think of about this compact. It is so inexpensive and does a good job that I could not judge where it lacks. For me, it did a good job so far!

Rating: 4.0 out of 5

My take: If you are looking for an inexpensive compact that does a decent job in absorbing the oils and keeps your skin matte, then this is for you.

  1. Looks nice, I use the Clinique powder, but it doesn't cover much, so I just wait till I'll finish it to buy a new one that will give more coverage.

  7. Nice review dear.. :) have used lakme compact long back, works decent but lakme usually don't list down ingredients so i tend to skip most of them worrying about my acne prone skin. :(

    1. I know, I don't know why brands do that even Revlon didn't have the full list, only the key ingredients I guess.
      For acne prone skin we have to be extra careful with our products.:)
