Once upon a time, I was just passing my time by looking for cosmetics online. I had no plans of buying anything but the makeup addicts just cannot scroll without buying anything. So I ended up purchasing this color bar radiant white UV fairness compact powder. So let’s find out how it fared with me-

My experience with color bar radiant white UV fairness compact powder
Packaging: It comes in a white opaque round shaped packaging. Though it is a plastic container but it is quite sturdy. It comes with an inbuilt mirror and a puff (which I have lost it). The puff is smooth and soft to the skin. The brand name is written with black on top of it. The packaging is basic and it closes with a ‘tick’ sound and closes really well. I cannot say it is travel-friendly because once I hard pressed the cap and it broke (refer the swatches). So I fear travelling with it but the outer packaging is solid.
Shade: The shade I have is sandy nude. There are 5 shades available, like white pearl, shell, sandy nude, just beige and tan. The shade luckily suits my medium to fair complexion perfectly. Since, it was an online buy, I was worried. But it blends seamlessly without giving a white cast.
Texture: This powder is finely milled. But it feels quite chalky when you touch it. Like you can see in the swatch, my finger picked up huge chunk of powder. Nevertheless, it blends effortlessly without any speck of powder feel to face. It is light-weight and gives a nice natural glow to face without looking cakey. If you can see in the swatches, it has soft light reflector particles. It surely makes your face look radiant.
Staying power and coverage: It stays for about 3 hours and after that I do require touch-ups. As far as coverage goes, it does nothing to provide the coverage. It claims to be a fairness compact powder, but it doesn’t make you pearly fair, it just lightly brightens up your complexion which fades after 2-3 hours but the face doesn’t look dull.
