Elle 18 is quite reasonable brand .. so I must say it has very reasonable rate . This compact comes in very cute packaging with applicator. I use this compact to set cc cream or foundation . It gives average coverage . It stays 1-2 hours not more than this .

When elle 18 launched its new range I was so excited to try them all because of their cute packing *teehee*
I am a sucker for compacts as I have supr duper oily skin and a bb cream or foundation makes me look like an oil factory even if it's matte.
So using a compact is a must for me. So I got my hands on it it was so cheap and super cute looking.
I got shade marbel.
I used it to set my foundation in place.
It smooths out skin quite well and controls oil for a good 2 hours after that my T-zones started producing oil.
Only drawback is it comes with no mirror.
Hence its a decent product but I've switched this as better products are available.
This is one of the affordable compact available in market. It is easily available in all local stores. It comes in a typical packaging with a mirror and sponge applicator. It has a kind of soap smell which I don't like. I gives a good coverage. The shelf life is 2 years. But it didn't suit my skin . Since I have acne prone skin I got some breakouts so I stopped using it. It is ideal for normal skin and can be used to set foundation. It gives a powdery matte finish. The texture is smooth and spreads easily. Overall it is a decent compact.

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?
