Helloo TMB Family! Finally Bhumika has put up my posts after a lot of nagging 🙂 (Kidding, she was waiting for some pictures from my end which I could not provide since I was Travelling) I am back to India after a 6 Hr Long Mauritius Flight (No I didn’t go there for a Trip, I am a Part of an Airline Crew, Yeah I know 😥 ). Lets get on to business, this is a product which I always use, this one is being AB-USED every single day 😛 since I have bought it and I am almost hitting the pan by its continuous use in the last few WEEKS! (Yes, Duh!)
Wondering what’s the mystery Product I have been gorging upon! It’s our little own Lakme Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact. Quite a Large name for a product that fits into the palm 😛 !
Price: Rs. 650 for 9 gm (Is Lakme Kidding me, I could have got 1 KG Silver in that Price!)
What Lakme Says: The dual Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact contains a unique formula of Hyaluronic acid hydrates which restores the natural glow and Vitamin B3 acts as the fairness agent. Use it dry as a Compact and wet as a foundation to look naturally fair and flawless.
- SPF 17
- Hyaluronic Acid (Hydrating Effect)
- Vitamin B3
- Long Lasting (upto 16 Hrs what Lakme Claims and 7 Hrs to be Precise)
I have absolutely no shame in stating that I hated the full range of Lakme Products, about its quantity to the prices and OMG reviews, so I did not want to waste my Moolah, but I needed a rub and touch compact after my MAC one got over and I was visitng through the bylanes of a Store and thought of trying. I liked the quick fix (melting) formula, the smoothie texture and the shade Rose Fair was just fit for my wheatish Skin Color. Sold!
It’s encased in a lovely velvet pouch too. The packaging is very compact with different areas for its soft sponge and a cool mirror and the compact ofcourse. The glossy gunmetal finish sets it apart from other drugstore compacts and it is quite sturdy. I have tossed it around many a times.
My Take on the Product:
The texture is silky soft, silky and gels with my skin in a jiffy. I pat with the sponge on my face Yeah That’s It! All the minor blemishes and marks are covered to a great extent and my face looks natural fresh and clear. I apply this alternate days (alternating between BB and this) and it never leaves my handbag! It is my instant Bollywoodish skin and sunscreen.
This can be used as a wet compact too but I never use it because I use cream for that & my sponge will get spoilt. For me this compact lasts minimum for a 7 hour flight and never needs touching up. Humid and Sweaty Mumbai weather or not it stays on my face through the day.
- Has SPF
- No fragrance
- Mirror & Sponge in Diff Compartments
- Glossy Gunmetal Packaging
- Without looking Powdery
- Does not need Touch up for 7 Hrs Atleast
- 16hours – Really??
- Price too high for brand like Lakme
Rating: 3.9/5 (Because of the Price vs Qty)
Will I Re-Buy/ Recommendation: I really adore this compact since it is effective to use. The texture is ultra fine without looking Powdered. I will definitely re-purchase this.
