My Experience With Lakme Radiance Compact Natural Marble:

Lakme Radiance Compact is a very old and traditional product. I have even seen my mom using a former version of this one. This itself is a certificate that the product is reliable. It comes in a maroon plastic case with a locking mechanism. The case comes with a mirror and a makeup sponge. The sponge provided in the packaging is of decent quality and is washable too. Earlier, the sponge was not that good. It used to be like a thin towel like applicator but now Lakme has improved on this. The compact is safe to carry in a purse but make sure it is in a pouch otherwise it can break due to jerks.

I dab some powder on the sponge and smear it on my face over my liquid foundation. I always use this to set my foundation as it controls oil and helps get a grease-free, smooth and semi matte finish. It blends well into skin and does not give cakey look or white cast. It feels light on the skin and gives medium coverage with a liquid foundation. It brightens up the face and makes the complexion look very even. It's staying power is around 3 hours which is okay but I expect a bit more. I have not experienced any breakouts or skin allergies. For the price it comes for, the product is good in quality as well as the quantity. Last but not the least, it gives an option between 4 shades to cover various skin tones. The negative thing is that it is doesn't have a pleasant smell and has a cosmetic/artificial smell. It does not have any added SPF. So, you cannot skip sunscreen with this one. Overall, this is a good product at a decent price. I will surely keep using it on a daily basis.

Pros Of Lakme Radiance Compact Natural Marble:
  • Four shades are available for different skin tones
  • Sponge and mirror provided in the case
  • Sponge is of good quality and washable
  • The compact is totally inexpensive
  • Gives medium coverage and looks natural
  • Gives semi matte finish and evens out skin tone
  • Great for setting and improving lasting power of liquid foundation

Cons Of Lakme Radiance Compact Natural Marble:
  • Might break if it falls
  • Staying power is average and the compact has no SPF
  • Complete ingredients list is missing

Final Note:

I recommend it to people who prefer to use affordable cosmetics. It gives medium coverage, brightens the face and is good to set liquid foundation. I will definitely repurchase this compact from Lakme.
