My top 5 Compact powders/Powder foundation

Hey all,

How are you all doing? Compact powder is all we need this summer to blot that oiliness on face. I use compact every single day not just to blot the oiliness, most of the time I skip my foundation and just apply concealer to set the oiliness and use compact powder for rest of my face and I am good to go. Today I will be showing my most used compact powders.

Mac studio fix powder in NC 42

This is by far the best powder foundation or compact powder I have ever used. It has good coverage and I don’t really need to touch up again till evening, I use a shade darker to even out few blemishes.



Maybelline fit me compact powder in the shade 310

This is my next best favorite. I don’t suggest this for oily skin but if your some where between normal to dry this is good. It has a tiny glitter like particles which illuminates your skin. I have done a full review on it as well – Maybelline Fit Me – Compact powder – Review.



Colorbar Timeless Filling and lifting compact in the shade soft opal 002

This is a recent discovery of mine. Initially I didn’t like it as much but gradually I found that it sets the concealer and foundation well and adds glows to the skin and staying power is pretty good on my skin.


You can see I almost finished it.



Maybelline super fresh compact in the shade pearl 

I have been using this compact since it was launched. Its pretty much a normal compact but gives you instant freshness and absorbs oiliness quickly.


Loreal Mat Magique All in one compact G2 gloden ivory

This compact was launched long back but I got to use to really late. This mattifies your skin instantly and it has a spf of 34 pa +++ which makes it perfect for summer.




That’s it for now guys. Hope the post is helpful. Let me know what is your favorite compact 🙂

  1. I love MAC as well but I try to keep all my makeup to minimum since I have sensitive skin. 😍

    I’m a NW 35 and I love the MAC powder! It adds a good amount of coverage so I like to use it on it’s own with just some concealer.
    I’d love it if you’d stop by my blog and check out my latest post:

      My shade keep changing.. NC 42 is also a shade darker for me.. I have some pigmentation so I am using a shade darker. My shade depends on the weather and my skin conditions. You know how it is. 🙄
