Elle 18 Glow Compact Review of the shade Marble

Hey Everyone!!
How are you! I hope you had a great Diwali and enjoyed a lot! I did the same but got a bit tired so was relaxing the entire day and then, thought I should share this review with you as a lot of young readers have been showing loads of interest in this new Elle 18 range!
So, here I am with the compact review. By the way; I have already reviewed Eyeliner here and juicy lip balm here. You can see if you missed!
This compact is priced at 150 rupees for 8 g which I think is affordable for people on a budget.

At similar price, I will also recommend you to try Lakme perfecting and Perfect Radiance compact, they both are really good.
Just like their other products this compact also has black packaging and with the same chic girl on the pack! It looks decent.
Inside there is a puff which I really like as it is very soft and works very well. There is a mirror just opposite the pan.
This Elle 18 Glow Compact is available in 4 shades:
Pearl

Coral

Marble

Shell

These shades are very exactly same which they have named for Lakme perfecting foundation. I don’t know why but I really liked that foundation.
Anyways, I find this Elle 18 Glow compact to be very smooth in texture and not chalky at all. I mean even if you have dry skin, it will not make it further dry. I have combination skin and it did well by absorbing oil and the oily areas were matte for around 2hours after which it needs to be applied again.
This color marble is for skin types which are in between fair to medium. It blends nicely and mattifies my skin.
I used it first time when I did the festive look only with ell 18 products See here and since then I have liked this compact.

I used it today as well over the regular BB cream, you know by now that I ma talking about Pond’s BB cream and the finish it gives is smooth and not chalky.
I wish they should have mentioned the ingredients on the pack but there aren’t any.
Though it has not break me out yet, this is the most concerned fact for an oily skinned person like me. It has not reacted badly or anything like that so far!!
