This is one really good compact. I don’t prefer putting it on directly. I use it for setting my foundation. It’s a really long lasting powder and it doesn’t have a whitish sheen to it. It blends w the skin and gives it a naturally powdered look. For anybody looking for a natural finish look, then this is going to be your best friend.

For a college student it is very necessary to have a good compaq because daily u cant put foundation but yes u can put compaq only n this product do justice to it even i use to set my foundation. I liked the packaging rosec gold color and had a mirror which is best to have . it stays for aprox 4 to 5 hrs. It has a nice coverage. n yes its worth the price.
I have lakme matte compact shade Melom matte. this is superbb compact for medium to fair skin.it makes my face oil free this product is perfect for my skin. its really amazing.it stay upto 5 hours,this product is best for daily wear...... I love rose gold packing of this product and compact looks ao cool.
Price of this product is affordable.
Price :-rs 400
I have the Lakme matte compact in the medium shade(Almond), which suits my skin tone. IT last for 5-6 hours, which is decent for a workplace. (You may have to touch up depending on the weather)
I don't use a foundation for everyday purposes, so I use this after using my moisturizer or sometimes my CC cream.
The packaging is simple, a box type, which when you open, has a mirror.
Priced at Rs 400, I would say that it's the the best value for money! I love the Lakme Radiance Complexion which is priced at Rs 145, and does a better job than this!
When the Lakme 9 to 5 range came up with their compact powder, I was eager to try it out as I was running out of my old compact and really needed something that would save me while I on the run! I love the classy rose gold packaging of this compact, it is such a pretty sight I tell you! I love the mirror on the inside and how the product nicely sits in that oval pan! The shade range is pretty limited and I bought the shade Almond for myself! I usually used it by itself as I wanted something that would help me look put together while I was at college, however, when I had a really important event or wedding to attend, I would use it on top of my foundation. Either ways, I really liked how it worked, gave me a fresh look for college on its own, and a better coverage when topped on a foundation! It worked well on my combination skin and never broke me out whatsoever! I wasn't really fond of the puff that came along with it! Overall, it is a nice product that is not a "must-buy" but something you should definitely opt for when on a budget!

The Lakme 9 to 5 flawless matte compact claims that brings out your amazing skin tone and enhances your beauty.It has Vitamin E which gives you a radiant look that lasts all day long.The compact is available in three different shades Almond,Apricot and melon.It is priced at Rs 400/- for 8 grams of product.I have picked up Almond shade for my fair to medium skin tone, Apricot for darker skin tones and melon for fair skin tones.The coverage is sheer and the finish is matte It stays fo upto 4 hours after that a touch up is required however the staying power depends on the skin type mine is dry skin.Overall it is a average drugstore foundation and apt for daily wear.
It is a nice compact but definitely not the best. It is a hit or a miss as the lightest shade might be too light for you and the medium shade would be too dark for you. I would suggest the Maybelline Superfresh white instead
How many hours does it last?
Do you use it to set a foundation or just on its own?
