Oriflame Pure Colour Perfect Powder Review

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.

oriflame compact


Touch yourself up with this ultra-fine powder and give yourself a light, natural complexion. Its lightweight foundation contains mineral zeolite to help smoothen the skin. Includes a mirror and powder puff within the product cap. For combination/oily skin.


Talc, Kaolin, Zinc Stearate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Parfum, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77891, CI 77499.

PRICE: Rs. 149 for 20 gm.



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.


• The only pro I can think of is the mirror that comes with it.


• 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 RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS: No, spend another ONE RUPEE and get a Lakme Radiance or Maybelline UV stay.

  1. I have stopped buying compacts after MAC skin finish. That’s the only thing i use every single day and it has never disappointed me. But this is like really bad. 🙁 Even lakme and maybelline have compacts in teh similar range and they are pretty decent. Why make such bad stuff just because it is inexpensive. :((

  2. I like the Lakme one that Rads sent…the new pink and white chappati kind…..but you know Rati…the earlier…Visions one was cheaper and good also….I think they got it wrong this time :weep: :weep: :weep:

    1. Jomol it might be a great idea to send MSF via courier also coz the powder is quite soft and it might crumple by the time it reaches you. 🙁 or may be you’d have to do pretty good packaging… think soo. bt you come to delhi. I’ll take you shopping. 😀 😀

      1. yeah, but shade matching karna padega na Rati….for that, there is no go but to go the store and pick up the correct one….I will pick it upt this month only….. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  3. khikhi…I think I will go to MaC store myself this month…..me and Aarohan will go out with our relatives who are coming over….at least for their sake, I have to go around the city….you know….its around 30 km from my place….. :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

  4. waise bhi…I have heard there is a gay SA there…I have never seen gays…..I want to see how a gay looks like :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

    1. Huh? There is nothing like that in Bangalore MAC…me also want some “different” SA….Gooodness Jomo..you are so horrible…they don’t look much different..just they are very creative and talented generally, so even if you meet someone like that, be really good to that person and get some awesome makeup done!

        1. Me pay one of the SAs there to take your datttee makeup photo and mail me :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

      1. yessssssss ….. me likes gays .. hehhehee .. they sit kitne ache se .. prim proper girl types .. mereko mard types feeling hoti hai unko dekh ke .. i cannot sit like a girl 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

          1. Jomol I already have someone who lovvvevsss me way too much… like I really do have one.. I dont want another one.. :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble:

        1. Me neither..like not prim proper like girls..but I hate the way guys sit..especially in buses…like they just keep spreading their legs all like it’s elastic or something…grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :spank:

          1. i was having water and choked myself … ‘elastic’ :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :shutmouth:

  5. Same pinch Varshini…I tho got dark only, but dark also is very chalky and makes me look like a wannabe :weep: :weep: :weep:

        1. charam pooshi :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: when I had put on this compact na…my mom said “velukkan techathu paandu ayyi” :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep:

          1. Haaaaaaaaan…..my hubby keeps telling me kulipichu kulipichu kutti disappeared it seems if i do too much mask scrub anything! And that marapetti eenampuchi thing…i tho thought he only makes these up..but its real it seems

            1. can one of you please explain what all this means ??? :pissedoff: :pissedoff:
              me bherrryy intereshted to knoww O:) O:) O:)

              1. Chaaram pooshi – put white powder all over face so it looks like you fell into a pile of ash. Ppl do that to look “fair.” My granny hates it. Is worse when the dusting of powder is fallen on their blouse..it really is like ash!

                velukkan techathu paandu ayyi – put something on your face to get fairer and you got white patches instead 😀

                kulipichu kulipichu kutti disappeared – okay i forgot the actual words, but anyway means ke you scrub and rub and do so many things to the baby or your face or whatever is being scrubbed and rubbed ke it will one day disappear – basically, dont be over obsessed with all these skin care things.

              1. Jomol!!!!! You said this comes out ashy in picture!!! I don’;t believe you!!! Me want your pic as proof!!!!! Me didn’t understand a single word… :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt:

                  2. Rads…………….have you heard about “chattagam chandiyil vekuga??? :zombiekiller: 😐 :zombiekiller: :zombiekiller: :zombiekiller: :zombiekiller: :zombiekiller:

                    1. chattagam chandiyil vekuga: chattagam – that thing used to turn dosas..flat spoon kind thing…whatever it is called. So she basically wants to garam garam it nicely and put on my bum :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep:

                    2. Rads!!! Why do you hear this all the time??? Who “chattagam chandiyil vekuga”s you???? :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank:

                1. Mrun……me and you should be fraands….like what stupid poem they had made….”what is mrun feeding you”…….just support me Mrun :shy: :shy: :shy: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi:

                    Me likes Jomol!! :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: She doesn’t have MAC also in her city like me!!!! Btw, Jomu, I think you’ll need Dark in MAC MSF, that’s what I use!!!!

                    1. Now I hate Jomol too!!!! :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: Me no fraands with anybody who has access to brands like MAC and above!!! :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff:

                    2. oh…………..thank God…Mrun….I was really scared like I will walk into the MaC store and they will try hundred of shades on me to find my exact match….I am very scared about this matching matching thing…Mrun…what is your shade in MaC….like what NC????

                    3. No!!!! It looks orangey if I wear it alone. But not on top of primer, foundation or TM!! :victory: :victory: :victory: :victory:

                    4. Jomu, I am like NC 43.5-44!!! NC 45 too dark and NC 42 too light!!! Somewhere in middle… 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

            2. yeah, that’s sacchi true……my mom calls me and my friend that….actually, malayalam has the largest stock of these kind of sayings………… :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:

              1. Eenampuchi – marapatti = I think they are two animals or something..I have no idea what they are anyway. So I think they are two namoona animals who are really friendly with each other and so my hubby uses that to describe me and whichever friend I am talking to at that time. 😐

                    1. cheee cheeee.. why do you ahve to “ALWAYS” get those slimiy insects into picturee… :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars:

                1. both enampechi and marapatti hunt in the dark.and complement each other……..and both do “YES SIR” YES SIR to each other….I know one enampechi marapatti jodi….do you know Rads any jodies :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

                    1. Accha???? Now I’ll have to remember my FB login details…. :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly:

                    2. Mrun….FB ka password bhool gahi…there is fulltoo timepass going on in FB….arrey you come soon………….. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  6. Jomol….me only used one compact….Maybelline UV….and then now I got M.A.C studio fix. I dont like comapcts so much :((. Don’t know why ?:)

  7. yet another example of how different things work for diff ppl! I got this in the light shade and loooovvvvvveeeee it… my colourbar and lakme have been laid to rest…. the shade is a perfect match, goes on light and keeps oil in check! no whitish cast… nada!

    my only grouse is that the sponge is bad…. i can see bald patches in just a month 🙁 and the powder goes all over the place. My mirror is coated and useless. I have to be very careful opening this or may spill some on me…. the packaging can also easily open in my bag while toting it around…

  8. yeah, Anks…actually the pan na dropped out one day….but the dark one didn’t work for me at all Anks……. :weep: :weep: :wilt:

    1. why only 2 shades? they think all of India can be covered with 2 measly shades??? its like Lakme works with 3… we’ll reduce one and cut costs… so we sell cheaper… A Whole Rupee Cheaper!

      1. yeah, Anks….I tho don’t understand how with so much diversity in skin colour, we can be covered in just two shades……………but a whole lot of shades is confusing too….I always tend to choose the wrong shades with lot of options too………. 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

  9. jomol…. nice review :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:
