Hello to all the MABH readers, this is my first post; so I am very much excited. I am a fashion and make up-freak just like every other girl (no offense). I keep buying beauty products and do experiments a lot. Today, I will be reviewing Colorbar Compact Powder, Shade 006 Honey which I bought a few months ago.
Price and quantity:
Rs. 200 for 9g/0.32 US oz.
I have hyper-allergenic skin, so if I use any sunscreen lotion or cream, within a few hours my face, hands and neck will be full of allergies. Thus, I use compact powders to protect my facial skin from harmful sunlight. Coming back to the product, this compact powder is very fine and smooth on skin, it actually gives a feel like light foundation. I have tried it with and without foundation, and both the time it worked fine for me. It covers the skin completely (if blended perfectly) and chosen the right shade, I think it would not give any embarrassing white cast. It blends very easily and stays for average long time (if not sweating too much)
It has a built-in mirror and applicator, also a round plastic sheet under the applicator to protect it from getting too much powder on it (which I really appreciate).
Overall, it is inexpensive, good quality product, good brand and almost does what it claims (except for sunscreen, not sure about if it contains SPF).
- Gives smooth and fine texture as claims.
- Built-in mirror and applicator.
- Small and sleek packaging.
- Pocket friendly.
- Can be used for daily use.
- Super-fine powder blends on skin easily.
- Hypoallergenic, as claims (for me).
- Sweat-proof, if you only dab your sweat, not wipe.
- Good quality brand.
- Not sure if it contains SPF.
Do I Recommend?:
Yes, I will recommend this product. In spite of having hyper-allergenic and sensitive skin, this product works perfectly fine for me. I sweat a lot, still after dabbing the sweat, it was fine.
Would I Purchase?:
Yes, I will, until I find a better one.
