Oriflame Very Me No time for shine Compact Powder - Review

Hello Friends,

Oriflame Very Me No time for shine Compact Powder

I love Oriflame for their product range, price and quality. I feel that they are well priced and underrated. I wanted a simple compact that I could carry with me for occasional touch ups and saw the "Very Me No time for shine" powder. It was priced at just INR. 298/- and I picked it up.

I am not someone who uses compacts on a regular basis. It is for those occasional touch-ups before unplanned meetings. Otherwise, I very much prefer my translucent powders.

It comes in a cute transparent plastic traditional compact pan. The lid shuts with an audible click. Travel friendly. It comes with an equally cute applicator. I do not normally use the applicator that comes with compacts but since this one goes to my hand bag, I retained it for touch ups.

The information leaflet is attached to the bottom of the pan.

When I received the compact, I thought it would be too fair for my medium-fair skin tone. But when I tried it on, I noticed that it more or less went on sheer causing no trouble in the shade department.

The compact does a decent job in keeping my face fresh. It is not long wearing. I prefer it for touch-ups on those days where I go really heavy on makeup.

The texture is finely milled and blendable. It does not look cakey.

I tried using it on top of my BB cream and I did not find it very good. As it is summer, my dry-combination skin needs little more attention in the oil-control department. My T-Zone started becoming shiny in just 3 hours.

I would have given it a 5/5 if the staying power was little better. But nevertheless it is a very good affordable compact for touch-ups on the go. I don’t think it will work for extremely oily skin.

Oriflame’s Very Me range targets high-school and college going girls. The products are also well priced to suit the target consumers. From that perspective, yes I will recommend this. But if you are looking for long staying makeup then I don’t think you will like this one.

You can now purchase Oriflame Products online from Nykaa.com


Have you tried their Very me range? I want to try their mini-mascara-liner combo with those cute click it connectors. :D
