Today I am going to share my experience with Chambor Silver Shadow Compact which has become the most important make up item in my handbag these days. I had tried it 2 years ago but discontinued it due to price considerations. I was hoping to get a cheaper compact with the same result; needless to say I was disappointed. Because if you use it once than you will love it forever!!! I LOVE it.

What the company claims
A compact is a must have for all women of today. Chambor brings to you Silver Shadow – a magical compact powder which will give you the flawless finish required in a jiffy.
Chambor Silver Shadow is made up of Translucent Loose Powder which has excellent blending ability, smooth application & a silky after feel. Also acts like a perfect base and gives you a healthy look. (Taken from their web-site)
My experience with Chambor SIlver Shadow
As I said I have used it earlier and already knew how it was. When I bought it for the first time the 32 gms quantity took quite a long duration for finishing up. I really liked it but was in search of a cheaper compact for which I tried Lakme Perfect Skin Lightening compact, Maybelline white stay UV compact but did not liked them. Maybe it is not fair to compare these with Chambor Silver Shadow Compact due the price difference. But Chambor is actually a magical compact powder -as the company claims that work’s wonder in just a minute.
It is an investment and I would rather say a long-term one because of its free refill pack. The compact comes in a cardboard case that has an additional 16 gms of product refill which the user can insert in the compact case when the original powder case is finished and believe me it will take you at least a year to finish it. Further, it is not a kind of product that you will want to finish in the excitement of buying other brands as you will love the feel of this compact on your skin.
• When I tried it for the first time in a mall on my face it felt nice but you can’t really make out as the lighting in malls is quite harsh.
• The case of the compact is beautiful.
• The SA at the first chance would not miss the opportunity to tell you that a refill pack of 16 gms is free!!! (Considering the price the quantity is very well included)
• When I earlier used it the case had a puff which was spongy (that is how I best describe it). I was shocked to see that the puff has been replaced by a cotton puff. I was super excited to use the puff .
• I am using sunscreen these days which makes my skin oily and shiny and I really don’t like my face after that. But when I apply this compact on my face, it transforms the way my skin looks.
• It’s super blendable and quick absorbing and disappears in skin like magic.
• No white patches and powdery feel.
• Leaves skin radiant & glowing.
• I am using RR5. However I wanted RR4 as I have used it earlier. But it was not available. I tried at different places but couldn’t get it. Even on the Chambor web site they have given just 4 shades and RR4 is not included. May be it has been discontinued, as the SA claimed.
• RR5 is suiting me perfectly and I wonder how??
• Complexion is enhanced; Skin feels smooth and gets a radiant glow. To really check it first apply it on half of your face.
• Stays there for long. Reapply once for a fresh look for the whole day.
• It even hides and lightens the dark spots on my face.
Pros of Chambor Silver Shadow Compact
• Super Light, Blend able.
• Gives a radiant look.
• Stays for long.
• Takes away the oiliness of moisturizer or sunscreen.
• Quantity is huge thus it will last really long.
• Dermatologist & Ophthalmologist Tested.
• Chic stylish case gives the product classy feel.
• Hides way small dark spot and even out complexion.
Cons of Chambor Silver Shadow Compact
• Price is on the higher side.
• The puff- it’s been replaced and I HATE it. In fact I bought a Vega puff to use with it but the case just doesn’t accept it and throws it out. I mean the size is not matching and the case can’t be closed with the Vega puff inside.
• No SPF.
Rating : 4.5/5 (0.5 deducted due to the addition of cotton puff)
Will I buy it again : Yes
Recommendation : Recommended to all the lovely ladies at IMBB, you will not regret buying it.
