My experience
I have used Lakme compact all my life and this is the first compact powder am using from any other brand. I applied the powder after applying my Inatur day cream and it blends very nicely. My shade is soft beige. It is perfect for everyday use and doesn’t give cakey  appearance. It is lightweight and blends well with moisturised skin. It gives a matte finish and helps to control oil to a certain extent. It is a good compact powder for daily use and adds a few tones of whiteness to the complexion, temporarily though.

The In
  • Lightweight travel friendly.packaging
  • Doesn't give a cakey look

The Out

  • Only 4 shades available

Overall thoughts
It is a very great powder which gives a matte finish to the skin. It blends quite well and controls oil to a certain extent. It lightens the skin tone temporarily. Lightweight packaging makes travel friendly and is great for daily use.

Repurchase - Yes for sure as am bored of using Lakme all the time.
