Lakme perfect radiance multi – mineral skin lightening compact review , price and swatches


Lakme perfect radiance compact review -Natural fairness anyone???

We all have been complaining to Lakme about how they have been increasing the price of their products.So this time they listened to us and introduced this skin lightening powder which which is affordable, has SPF 20 and is a multi mineral powder as well.Voo !!! Quiet impressive huh!!!

Frankly speaking I bought it because I bought Lakme skin lightening foundation also (haven’t reviewed it) and with the total product prices they were giving me a cute Lakme carry bag also which has good space for foundation, compact, eyeliner and lipstick too.Do check it out when you visit Lakme counter next time.

Price of Lakme perfect radiance multi – mineral skin lightening compact is Rs 150 for 8gm… Bingo!!! 😀

Lakme has kept Indian skin tone in minds has introduced following shades in the compact:-

1. Rose Fair 02 

(This one I got .I have warm skin tone though I was thinking of getting Medium Beige but for natural fairness it suited me well.It has yellow undertones which suits my dusky complexion)

2.Medium Beige 03 – This will suit those who have skin above NC 45 .

3.Honey 05 – This is slightly darker than Medium Beige

4.Ivory Fair 01 – This is for those who have fair complexion according to Indian skin tone.

Likes –
1. It gives me natural fairness and makes me look one tone lighter.
 2. Decently priced and gives instant glowing finish.
3. It doesn’t give that whitish cast which we all loathe.
4.It has a mirror in it  and good for doing touch ups while traveling.
5. SPF 20 is an added advantage.
6.It lasts for 4-5 hours easily.
7.Didn’t break me out.
8.It gives medium coverage and goes well with foundation.
9.Blends easily and is light weight and mild
10.It has no shimmer in it and I love it for this because I can use it every day.
11 With 8gm of quantity it is going to last for 2 months easily if I use it every day.

Dislike :-

1. It has strong fragrance which lasts for two minutes only though but I seriously don’t like it.
2.I don’t like the puff which comes along with it.Though it does give smooth finish to me but sad part is it is too thin and after 4-5 usage I feel like not using it any more.
3. I am NC 42 -43 and Rose fair 02 goes well with my skin therefore I think fairer skin girls have less option in this range.
4.I wish product could be dermatologically tested like their Lakme earth rose blush
Recommendation – It is decently priced product which has SPF 20 and brighten up the complexion.Imparts a natural glow to the skin without giving that whitish cast.Highly recommended to  those who needs that yellowish touch  in their compact.
Rating -4/5

  1. Hi Anamika !

    This one looks like a decent compact, decently priced too.

    I used to have the revlon compact, long long back. Have been thinking of buying a new one, will probably pick this up. Love the red bag you got with it – Ive taken your advice and ask the SAs at the cosmetic counters, whether they have any offers running.

  2. yaa ido like revlon compact it gives medium coverage…
    and these SA never declairs u have to ask only..

    how was the marriage and how is yur cat doing …?? what 's her name??

  3. I've been waiting for the review. Great help Anamika. The package looks soooo cute! I so badly wish to go shopping and window shopping. 🙁

  4. Hi Anamika, was waiting for your review on this product. I have a few questions before buying it. How does this compare to the maybelline compact (if you've used that). Also, does this stop your T zone from getting oily, even for a little time? Last question – is it light enough to be used on top of foundations to set it or heavy enough to be used without foundation?

  5. Hi Poohkie…I will do the comparision 2mrw morning..:)

    yes it does stop t zone from getting oily but for like an hour or so.

    yes i use it on top of my foundation and it is very very light:)

    and it is not "that" heavy enough to used without foundation.i mean it gives brightness and fairness to the skin and gives medium coverage.
