VOV GiveAway Entry Post – XIII

Here I am with my review of Very Me NO TIME TO SHINE POWDER Compact from Oriflame.
Shade: The shade I bought is MATTE LIGHT ( Product Code: 20531 ) It is also available in MATTE LATTE (Product Code:20532 )
Shade selection might be a problem for dusky skin tones as I felt that both the shades are almost similar.
Oriflame veryme No TIME FOR SHINE Claims:- Shiny skin is a thing of the past. Mattifying formula absorbs oil and keeps skin looking fresh when you need it. Conceals imperfections without hiding your natural skin tone. Perfect alone or when paired with Very Me Cover Up Concealer.
Price :- 249 INR (I guess). Sorry, I forgot as I bought it 3 months back!
Now let’s see the compact…
Why I love this product:
When I bought this compact I just thought it’s a replacement to my old Lakme compact. But the very first day I applied it on my face without any primer and foundation …OMG ! what a finish it gave, just WOW…that’s the moment I just fell in love with this compact! As the day went on, I noticed that it even controls sweat incredibly. I wish it could have been water-proof too (I know I am demanding too much from this product…but who doesn’t want to get quality product at an affordable rate? ).
Another awesome quality is it’s texture. It’s very light and blends easily into your skin.
Among all the goody-goody things there is a drawback…see the picture of the swatches of the compact…I have fair complexion and still you can see that the shade is almost two tones lighter than my skin tone. Once it blends it truly hides all your flaws but once it wears off, it will reveal your actual skin tone .
I was using the Lakme Compact the ordinary one from pretty long time but it never give me the look I wanted. That’s the reason why I decided to switch to this compact completely.
- Cheap when purchased during discounts.
- Hides blemishes and spots to some extent.
- Matte finish.
- Travel friendly.
- The compact is set in the hardly into the case. Proof, as mentioned already my son dropped it onto the floor but it still didn’t break down into pieces. Thank God!!!
Rating: 4/5. Reduced 1 point for the limited shade selection and also for the non-discounted price.
As I love trying different brands, I can’t promise to stick to this compact. But I will stock at least one for sure during discounts as I always have a soft corner for Oriflame.
