Colorbar UV Fairness Compact Powder Review

Hey ladies…how are you all? I am quite enjoying the receding winters out here in about you? If I talk about makeup, as per me, the most important as a clear, non patchy base makes your skin look healthy and radiant and enhances the effect of other products that you use like the blush on, bronzer etc. A good base makeup kit has to always contain a setting powder. Now, whether you want that to be loose powder or pressed compact is your choice. Personally, I prefer compact as you do not pick up too much powder in one go.

Setting your foundation with a powder is the key to long lasting base makeup that does not melt away. Powdering is especially important in the T zone to put off the shine that is a bit of a turn off.

The powder is in form of a pressed cake. The packaging has a mirror and a sponge along so very convenient to carry around. The cap closes tightly.


The pressed powder feels smooth and is light on skin. It allows a uniform application of the product.

My experience of Colorbar UV Fairness compact powder

This product is available in the following Shades:

Five which are White Pearl, Shell, Sandy Nude, Just Beige and Tan. The one that I found best for myself is #004, just beige. I use this compact powder as a final step to complete my base make up. I dab the sponge lightly on my face taking small quantities of the compact powder at a time. Since, the product does give sheer coverage, it is even better and can even be used with a BB cream. The built in mirror makes the compact a good travel and on the go product. It closes tight enough and is light weighted too.

It makes my foundation last much longer and also takes care of oiliness in my T zone. It is skin tinted so does not end up giving you a fake- Mask like appearance. It claims of giving UV protection too, which is good but no skipping your sunscreen please since this alone might not be enough as a shield against the sun. Fortunately, it did not break me out but it can if, you do not give the sponge a weekly bath. Be very careful about the hygiene of such products and do not share them with anybody. Also, you can apply it well using a fluffy brush.

Overall, I am happy with the price as well as performance of this product.
