*Percentage of women agreeing to the claim. Consumer test on 213 women.

Ingredients: - Not Listed

My Opinion: - Compacts are an essential part of makeup, we all know that. I have been experimenting with a lot of compact powders over the years but keep coming back to Revlon Touch & Glow Compact which I like very much. Coming back to the review, the packaging is simple. A white plastic compact case with a little irregular shape :P Upon opening the lid, a round mirror can be seen which is apt for touch ups on the go. Also the sponge/puff is average and can be used in emergencies.

                        The fragrance is herbal-floral type and neither good nor bad. It goes away after sometimes of application. This compact powder looks chalky in the pan. But in reality it is light weight and oil free as claimed by Lakme. I use it over my regular moisturiser/sunscreen and also over BB Creams and foundations. I usually use a powder brush instead of the sponge/puff provided with the compact to apply the powder.

                      The compact is easy to blend and gives medium coverage. It comes with the added advantage of SPF 23 UVA/UVB protection. It makes my skin glow but the 2 shades fair skin is a false claim. This compact stays on for 4 hrs in a non air-conditioned environment but stays on for much longer durations in an air-conditioned environment, about 7 hrs. A little touch up is required at times and my skin looks fresh and radiant. Its very affordable and perfect for everyday use. Also comes with the goodness of Multi-minerals and Vitamin B3.


Pros: -

* Affordable and easily available

* Great for everyday use

* Comes with the added advantage of SPF 23 UVA/UVB protection

* Easy to blend

* Light weight and oil free

* Controls oil for long

* Good lasting power

* Contains Multi-minerals & Vitamin B3

* Adds a radiant glow to my skin without a chalky whitish cast


Cons: -

* Ingredient list not provided

* 2 shades fairer skin is a false claim

             I rate Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact SPF 23 4 out of 5. It a good compact for everyday use and great for oilies like me. Highly recommended.
