  1. i have combi skin,and i dont require heavy duty coverage so i use lakme perfect radiance in the shade beige honey,it doesnt dry out my cheeks and also doesnt leave my t zone oily,so it kinda works for me.
    plus at Rs.160,it is quite cheap too.
    And it doesnt leave any sort of white cast over the skin,provided you choose the right shade,its v.wearable.i use it everyday to college,and the look is quite natural.

    1. Thanks Neha, right now using the same, but might be on a wrong shade, I do get white cast…will def give it a second shot!

  2. I use Max Factor Creme Puff in ‘Sun Frolic’ shade. Its my HG compact. Also I also combi skin which is very troublesome.. I cant afford to peek into the mirror every couple of hours to check for touch-ups which makes it even more desirable as it does require any touch for good 6-7 hrs. Yay!!! Also its priced betwn 500-600 which is decent as a little goes a long way and no virtual touch-ups.

  3. Maybelline clear and glow is great and its reviewed on imbb also by Jomol. even i have combinational skin and this works great for me. i found it much better than maybelline whitestay.. 🙂

    1. Liked the same when SA tried on me after compact, but was not sure about how effective it would be on combi skin! Thanks Aarti!

  4. i second neha 🙂 lakme perfect radiance compacts are worth the deal. i use the shade “golden honey” and it suits me perfectly! even i donot like whitish cast on my face. it just brightens up my face and mattifies my otherwise oily T zone

  5. Rashmita, I have used many compacts, but I have found Lakme’s Radiance compact to be the best, the maroon packaging one. Other than that, try Maybelline one too 🙂

    1. jomol,
      my mother has been using that for years,and she absolutely loves it,btw have you tried the perfect radiance compact from lakme?it used to come in a pink-white packaging,now it comes in a completely white one.

  6. hi rashmita, try L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable compact ,try very light for everyday use. there are many others options in this range.

    1. To be honest Kalps, I am little scared of L’Oreal true match, the foundation from the same collection failed me totally!

  7. I am a big MAC fan when it comes to cosmetics like compact and concealer. I use the MAC skinfinish imnerlaize compact and it works beautifully with the concealer. It does not look cakey at all and staying power is quite long too.

    good luck..

    1. Thanks Aru, eyeing Mac since long but honestly I am not too comfortable with the MUAs at Mac in Kolkata…any kolkata beauty wants to take me along???? Plsssss

  8. Rashmita go for chambor luminious compact…:-)
    Its the best compact for combination
    to oily skin… :- D It comes in different shades n the best part is it doesnt gv beakouts n hav spf
    N its ideal for daily wear…
    Good luck.. 😀

      1. Luminious compact is around 1175
        Me currently using chambor silver shadow
        Compact n Im loving it … It cost around 725
        But one of the best compact…!!!

  9. Thanks a lot to all of you…
    Jomol, I could not reply you, donno why? Probably due to the blue box!
    But thanks for putting this up and your valuable suggestion!

  10. I have used Revlon touch and glow for the longest time… lately got maybelline dream matte compact.. and loving it!!!! it absolutely melts into my skin AMAZING
