Hey everyone 

In this post I will do a review on Lakme perfect radiance intense whitening compact in shade ~ "ivory fair"



 This comapct has been recently launched by Lakme with new improved unique packaging

The case is irregularly shaped which is neither circle nor oval & has an inbuilt mirror

It contains SPF 23 and gives UVA/UVB protection

As the company claims ~ 

It flawlessly blends into the skin making it look visibly fairer and translucently radiant
Its unique formula contains :
Skin brightening pearls that add a pearly glow & Goodness of multi-minerals
Also claims that it can make 2 shades fairer than any compact !(consumer test has been done on 213 women in India out of which 97% women agreed to the claim *)

Since it is oil free and light weight, it can easily be chosen for daily use

The smell is not that over powering & is quite similar to Lakme invisible foundation  

It is priced at Rs.160(raised from Rs.150) for Net quantity~ 8gm

Its shelf life is for 24 months

I purchased mine from where 3 shades were available, viz, ivory fair / golden medium / Beige honey. Yes it would have been better if they could have provided us with more shade varieties.

The powder puff/ applicator has also improved which helps in blending the powder easily

Hence you might not need to apply with a seperate powder brush*

So overall I quite liked the new improved formula of the compact and it really brightened my face instantly

Moreover, Staying power is also good

So as far as budget makeup is concerned, you must give it a try 

to add to that you can even skip using a sunscreen lotion seperately

Hence I will rate it 4.2 out of 5

I hope you all liked the review. Dont forget to share your views about it.

with love,
