ELLE 18 GLOW COMPACT REVIEW
Hey beauties : )
Now-a-days I’m not getting much time to write up beauty blogs. But still I thought of picking up a few hours and sit in front of my laptop. Here I’m on today with another product review, Elle 18 Glow Compact. Elle 18 used to be my favorite beauty brand. I loved to have Elle 18 nailpaints, lipsticks and so on. Day passed by and I’ve lost my interest on this particular brand. But during this puja shopping I thought of having the brand a try. I’d heard a lot about the glow compact from Elle 18. So I thought why not get this for the festive days?? I’ve tried it and now I’m going to give a brief yet detailed review of the same.
About the product:
While having a discussion on descriptions of the product, I must start with the packaging. The packaging of this Elle 18 glow compact is quite cute and travel-friendly. It comes in a plastic case that is light and easy-to-carry. And the case is wrapped in a cardboard box.
It contains a smooth applicator puff and also a mirror attached to the plastic case. That means you can have a quick touch up in a mall or subway train wherever you want.
The applicator has a sponge sheet in the application side and other side is covered with velvet.
The powder is basically a pressed powder that isn’t powdery at all. It blends up with skin very nicely and thus leaves no artificial powdery look.
The long lasting floral fragrance is really soothing.
I’m not sure whether it covers up pigmentation marks, as I don’t have them.
Price as on 18.09.2014: 150INR for 8g of Elle 18 Glow Compact

My take on Elle 18 Glow Compact:
I have a wheatish complexion and an excessive oily skin. But still it worked nicely on my skin too. I wasn’t expecting a hell lot of things from this product but I was basically looking for a face powder that will worked on glowing up and mattifying my skin. Well I got what I expected : ). You can see the area where I applied the powder on, and also the nude area. Elle 18 has always been in market competing with various other beauty brands as a budget product. Like that, it’s affordability is quite good. It’s smooth texture impressed me a lot. A repeated application of Elle 18 glow compact in every 3-4 hours will keep you fresh and matte throughout the day.
Product Rating: 8 out of 10
I would recommend this product to you if you need to mattify your skin with a nice, effective yet affordable popular brand : ).
