Has SPF14 which shields skin from damaging UVA/UVB rays.
Available in four different variants,
The shade that I would be reviewing today is “Natural Beige”
So here is my daily minimal office makeup (!?!) routine – Clean and clear skin balancing Moisturizer (Oil free) + ponds age miracle tinted moisturizer + Avon Simply pretty shine no more pressed powder + liner/Kajal/Mascara + Lipbalm & Lipstick
Yes, I accept! I love this product more than my Maybelline Whitestay UV compact and Lakme Perfect Radiance compact simply because, it does a better job and at a better price!
I have an oily T zone and this powder works wonder on my face by keeping it oil-free for a minimum 4 to 5 hrs!
For the price, I would say it does a pretty decent job J
Quantity and Price:
10g for Rs.169 or $3.20
Many times we can get these at a much cheaper price esp when they are on offer! I got mine for Rs. 129 J

DYK when to use a pressed and loose powder: If you need a opaque full coverage look, go for loose powder! For a sheer lighter coverage look, pressed powder would be the best bet J
