MY TAKE ON LAKME 9 TO 5 NATURALE FINISHING POWDER
Packaging: The powder comes in a plastic jar with dotted inner lid and a screw-cap. The jar is quite lightweight and easy to carry around. The product also comes with an applicator puff that makes product usage easy on-the-go.
Texture: The powder is extremely fine and blends beautifully into the skin leaving behind no white cast and feels satiny-matte. If you have oily-combination skin, you would love this!
Shade: The shade is universal and has a hint of peach shade just like any other translucent powder.
Fragrance: The product does not have any characteristic fragrance which makes me glad because I am not a big fan of strong fragrances all the lakme products have.
How I use and staying power: I use makeup on regular basis and always set it with a translucent powder. Since I have oily-combination skin, I always prefer powders with matte comfortable finish and this loose powder is a perfect fit during this hot and humid summer. Simply take some powder on a fluffy brush and sweep it all over your face, bare or on top of foundation and you are done.
The powder sets to a beautiful satin-matte finish and skin feels matte yet comfortable without really cracking the foundation or settling into fine lines and corners on face. The powder does an amazing job in controlling shine even in this humid and hot weathers and makeup looks matte and fresh for longer (for about 6-7 hours!). The powder also works well on bare skin and helps control shine. The powder is translucent and does not have any coverage, so do not get confused as this is only a setting powder or shine-control powder. I felt the powder had a slight glowing-shine when swatched on hand but it looked matte yet glowy on the skin which is great since my skin appeared radiant and fresh. Also, this powder is quite inexpensive and equally effective as compared to other costly setting powders I use, I am glad I found a cheaper substitute! I give this product a thumbs up.
