Oriflame Pure Colour Perfect Powder Review
If you ask me how many compacts I have, I don’t know, and if you ask me how many of them I really use, I don’t know still, but that doesn’t deter me from buying new compacts. I don’t have any compacts from the high-end brands, just usual affordable ones from Avon, Oriflame, Lakme, Maybelline, Revlon, etc. When Oriflame had launched the Pure Colour Perfect Powder compact, I got that too because it is damn cheap and for a person with a compact fetish like me, it’s an easy pick.

PRICE: Rs. 149 for 20 gm.
MY TAKE ON ORIFLAME PURE COLOUR PERFECT POWDER:
I have the Oriflame Vision’s compact which I got at Rs. 125 and I had to choose it out of the two shades given…..one for light complexion and the other for dark complexion, and I chose dark, and it worked for me just fine. So, this time around too, when Pure Colour came out with just two shades, I chose the dark shade and when it came, it was such a disappointment. The compact comes in a black paper case cover. The compact has a nice mirror on the inside of the cap. The powder puff that comes with it is not very good, but it is not scratchy either. The compact is heavily fragranced. Since, the compact comes in limited two shades, it should have worked for all dark shades, but it doesn’t. It goes very chalky on the face and talcum powder will look much better than this on my face. Contrary to described in the catalogue, it weighs on the skin heavily and does not make me comfortable at all. When I was done with a very light application with it, I clicked myself and it came very ashy in the pics. Even if you apply with a light hand or a heavy hand, it will stand out like a sore thumb, so I have chucked it out completely, and the only thing I use now is the mirror inside the cap. Not a large amount I paid, but then, truly disappointing for even that price. I was regretting I could have paid just 1/- extra and got the new Lakme Radiance compact or the Maybelline UV stay, which cost around Rs. 150 each, and both of these compacts work like a dream.
PROS OF ORIFLAME PURE COLOUR PERFECT POWDER:
• The only pro I can think of is the mirror that comes with it.
CONS OF ORIFLAME PURE COLOUR PERFECT POWDER:
• Only two shades available, one light and the other dark, I am dark but the dark shade didn’t work for me.
• Goes chalky on the face.
• Comes ashy on pictures.
• Weighs heavily on the skin.
• Contains parabens.
IMBB STAR RATING: 1/5….+1 for the mirror.
WILL I PURCHASE IT AGAIN: NO.
WILL I RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS: No, spend another ONE RUPEE and get a Lakme Radiance or Maybelline UV stay.
