This is my third compact after Avon simply pretty and Maybelline Clearglow fairness compact.
You all know my love of compact powders due to my combination skin.
Coming to the review Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact gives very sheer light coverage. It does not cover any discoloration at all.
However its good on the oil control part. Keeps my skin matte for up to 5 hours in an a/c environment.
It does come off with sweat and transfers as well like all other powders.
The smell is somewhat soapy, which I hate.
But the fragrance kind of disappears 5 minutes after application.
Now coming to the shades, the darkest shade available is Beige Honey 05, which is what I have.
But its still lighter for my fair to medium skin tone.
Lakme really needs to work on their shade range for medium and darker skin tones.
I have no idea why this shade is called beige honey.
In my opinion is just beige with neutral undertones.
So if you have medium skin tone, you can still make it work by applying lightly since its pretty sheer.
But it does tend to look a little white on me.
I would have like a better finely milled texture like Maybelline clear glow compact.
A plus point with Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact is it does not look cakey even if you overdo it.
I say give this a miss if you’re going for coverage but pick it up for oil-control.
The puff provided with it is so thin.
Here are some pictures of the puff to give you an idea
