2. Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder


Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder

Maybelline New York Fit Me + Poreless Powder comes in a square plastic black packaging. Once you open up the actual packaging of the compact powder you will see the powder on the top and when you flip it up a puff which is quite soft on the bottom and a decent mirror to see your face. According to me I am not a very big fan of the packaging and to be honest in real words I hate it because once you start working you surely will face a problem of doing it without the mirror and when you need the mirror then you have to flip it up which sometimes become very inconvenient for the customers to use. Provides you a natural and smooth finish on the skin that feels very lightweight that doesn’t make the face look cakey as it is an oil-free and doesn’t clog your pores can be suited to every skin type including sensitive skin because this compact is dermatologist and allergy tested.

MRP: 210

Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++ Compact

Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++ Compact powder comes in a entire yellow packaging. I personally love the products that have multiple benefits to provide to the customers as this compact provides two things simultaneously first it acts as a compact powder and second as an SPF that too 40+++ which will also ensure that the skin is protected with the harmful sun rays that can cause various skin problems  like tanning, sunburns, premature aging, pigmentations, or scares so it has become the first ever sunscreen in a revolutionary compact powder till date. This is specially designed for India’s weather (hot plus humid). It provides the skin a matte and non-sticky look which suits all skin types though easily control excessive oil or sweat but always remembers to apply this compact powder 20 mins before exposing yourself to the sun just as we do with a regular sunscreen.

 5. L’Oreal Paris Mat Magique All-In-One Pressed Powder

 MRP:₹450 loreal paris matt magique compact powder

Loreal Paris Mat Magique All In One comes in pink metallic packaging and first, on the top compact powder  is visible and when you flip up the compact you will see a clear glass and a small puff which is surely bummer according to me because if you look at the compact powder packaging it is very difficult to work with. It is best for the people who are dealing with a lot of sweat issues or have an oily skin type because it’s going to soak up all of the oiliness on the skin keeping it matt and also by providing a good amount of protection on the skin as it has SPF 34+++ that acts as a sunscreen protection that can easily rescue us from various skin issues like premature aging, tan, sunburns or pigmentations. This product claims to stay for 12 hours and as far as my opinion is concerned surely it stays for very long but again having said that always depends on the skin type you have and keep you fresh and fairer. It has a decent amount of pigmentation.


  • Lightweight.
  • Keep you fresh.
  • Provide you a fairer look.
  • Contain SPF 34+++.
  • Decent pigmentation.
  • Best for oily skin type.
  • Stays for 12 hours.
