Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Compact Powder

Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Compact Powder

Hi everyone

Today, I am sharing a review on the new launch compact from Lakme. This compact was launched in the Lakme Face stylist range of products. I like Mac and Inglot translucent powders to set foundation but I haven’t tried it, next time I should. This one matched my skin tone well, so I picked it up. I liked a lot of stuffs from the recent launch from Lakme especially the eye crayons, eyeconic colored pencils and also the face stylist foundation. I would have picked up a lot more of stuffs but the prices are really high for a drugstore brand. Read on to know about the Lakme Face stylist Compact Powder.
Price and Quantity

Rs. 1000 for 11 grams

Product description

Ultra, soft, weightless and skin smoothing finish with the highest skin affinity. This healthy and naturally vibrant compact gives natural radiance and a second skin finish.

My experience with the Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Compact Powder


The Lakme absolute face stylist compact comes in a classy packaging. The compact case is glossy black color and all the product details are printed behind the case. The compact powder comes with a mirror and a sponge for application. The mirror is nice and sturdy it doesn’t make the packaging heavy or bulky. The sponge is placed just on top of the compact powder without a separate compartment. The sponge is very thin and I did not like it. I prefer powder brushes definitely for even application. The packaging is nice travel friendly and sturdy.


The compact powder has a very soft texture and it is finely milled. It feels very light and weightless on skin. It blends evenly on the skin and doesn’t give patchy look. The compact powder gives a medium coverage. The powder is weightless on the skin like the foundation from the range. It does not give a heavy and cakey look even if you layer it more. The powder sets the foundation really well and keeps the t zone oil free for a long time.

I have combination skin and this compact controls oil secretion and keeps skin matte. I applied it in the morning and for about 6 hours of wear time I found no shine. The compact powder doesn’t have any strong fragrance. It is very mild and fades away in a minute of application. The compact powder is available in 6 shades matching to the foundation shades. I was matched with almond honey by the SA, but I picked up beige honey as it went well over my foundation color and matched my skin tone.


Pros of the Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Compact Powder

• Good packaging.
• Texture – it is soft and finely milled.
• Little amount of product gives good coverage.
• It stays for a good amount of time.
• It controls oil.
• It gives a natural matte finish.
• You can layer it up for more coverage, it still looks natural.
• It doesn’t make foundation appear cakey or dry.
• It feels light on skin
• Availability.


Cons of the Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Compact Powder

• Price – Expensive for a drugstore brand, I am sure many will prefer Mac over this one at this price point.
• Again like the foundation, there is absolutely no shade for darker skin tones.


IMBB Rating
Will I repurchase and do I recommend the Lakme Face Stylist Compact Powder?
No, I want to try translucent powders. Overall, the compact comes with a good lasting formula, which sets foundation well and controls oil. If you find a good match and don’t mind the price, go ahead and try it.
