I initially started using this product a few years ago when I had just started college and I didn't want to spend too much. Over the years I experimented with other compacts but this one has always remained a favourite. It gives a light sheen and absorbs moisture and gets rid of shine all at once... Great buy for anyone on a budget.

This product is a Good one . I Apply it after CC cream or BB cream which then enhances my look even more and covers all spots and patches evenly face. My face looks radiant after applying it. The product is really affordable and cheap. This product is so light and blends super finely on my skin tone. It doesn't look as if I have applied any makeup.
After having a bad experience with the Glow Foundation, I was petrified of using the compact, though I had purchased all the new range together, without much thought. I used the foundation first and then on another day used the compact. The compact comes in four shades as I already mentioned. I have bought the “Pearl” shade, which is suited for the lightest complexion. Though my complexion is wheatish fair I guess, but I thought of experimenting by buying two shades, one for foundation and another for Compact. Thus I chose Marble for foundation and Pearl for compact. I was more confused on the match of these two shades on my complexion, hence picked both which were most likely my match. After using both the products I feel, Pearl is best suited for my complexion.
The compact comes in the trademark Elle 18 black packaging. It has a double packaging, paper outer carton case and inside it a plastic compact case. The product is 8 grams in quantity, and the packaging plastic is not at all bulky, thus this comes very handy to carry in your make-up pouch *toothygrin*. On opening the case, on the upper half there is a round mirror attached to the walls, Thank God for that. A compact without a mirror is useless I guess, to do last moment touch ups.
The texture is smooth on application, spreads evenly all over your face and neck. The puff provided is quite average, but thankfully soft. It helps in a smooth hassle free application, as its small in size fits easily in yours palms to help you touch up each time. For me, a compact puff texture and size matter for precise application, this one does a fairly good job.
Decent for daily use...less coverage
How many hours does it last?
Do you use it to set a foundation or just on its own?
