Elle 18 Glow Compact in Marble : Photos, Review

I am reviewing all products I got from Elle 18 one by one and today I will be reviewing the compact called the 'Glow Compact'. I have already reviewed the foundation and the liner HERE and HERE. As I got the foundation in a dark shade called 'Shell' I expected the compact in the same shade too but I got a lighter shade called 'Marble'. It looked too light in the pan and when I swatched it I thought it would never suit me ! Read on the review to know how much it scored from me.

The compact comes in a simple black packaging and it has a mirror inside along with an applicator. Though the packaging looked a bit flimsy I already dropped it a couple of times and still it is firm and intact. The applicator is just 'okay' however it feels soft and smooth on skin. The powder is really fine and soft. As I swipe it with the applicator and apply it on my face I could smell the powder which is good. It smells the same way as that of the foundation. Surprisingly the powder blends well into my skin, though it looks very light in the pan. Coverage is very sheer so I am using it as a everyday setting powder and it does keep the oiliness away for a couple of hours.

  • The powder is very fine and feels silky smooth.
  • It blends very easily with the skin.
  • Does not leave any whitish cast on the face.
  • The applicator is soft on my skin.
  • It comes with a mirror and an applicator.
  • It makes it very travel-friendly.
  • Great for touch ups.

  • If you are expecting good coverage then this might disappoint you.
  • It helps to keep the oiliness away for just a couple of hours so I have to touch up often.

This compact is just fine for everyday use and this comes really handy during travel. For the price I never expected the powder to be so fine and smooth and that comes as a sweet surprise. Also the shade doesn't really matter, 'Marble' is supposed to be the second lightest shade but still it blends really well with my skin. If you are in the look out for some affordable compacts that is travel-friendly too, then you can go ahead and buy this super soft compact from Elle 18.
