My Take on Product 

I am using this powder for good 2-3 weeks and now I am here to review it  & to share my experience with you guys. It is a nice compact with a descent price tag. It really helps in getting  rid of  the shine & oil on my face which is quite amazing, but then the wear time is an issue. I had heard loads of good reviews about the product on different blogs & channels so I was damn excited to try it. It comes in quite affordable price tag of Rs. 230, earlier it was priced Rs.190 but as they were selling like hot pancakes here in India so I think company has hiked the the price but they are still very affordable. The compact comes in a very simple packaging. The powder is in a round pan in a plastic circular tub with a clear, screw- on lid. It doesn’t come with any applicator or mirror, so I think it is con as while travelling it can be problems for touch ups. I used it with my soft Kabuki Brush

Now, coming to the texture its texture is smooth though not very silky soft or powdery. It has  sheer coverage so it works quite well over foundation as a setting powder. It doesn’t give me a cakey look, doesn’t look heavy and gives a nice soft matte finish . My T-zone and chin begin to show oil  within 3 hours and I need a touch-up to fix it . It works well as a setting powder for all skin types. I had order it online so I was little worried that the shade would be correct for me or not but thankfully I got the right shade for me.
