A quick touch-up on the go is something that every woman understands the value of, especially when you have had a long day at work and have to go out to a nice place right after. While the blessed souls can just powder their noses and head out the door, my skin has an aversion to pressed powder and immediately turns cakey and weird when it comes in contact with any compact. Therefore, for hassle-free touchups, cream compacts are my saviours. I recently picked up the Nykaa Get-Set-Click Creme to Powder Compact for these quick touch-ups and here are my thoughts after using the product for a few days.
This product comes in a sleek packaging with a sponge and a mirror. The creme compact has a very smooth finish in the pot, and it applies equally smoothly on the skin. It provides a medium, buildable coverage that should be able to cover small spots and scars as well as dark circles to some extent. I went for the shade 03 – Hazel Glory, which is a warm-toned beige that matches my skin tone pretty well. The cream formula blends really easily on the skin and is quite light-weight too. After a few minutes, it settles down to a matte, almost powder finish, without the cakiness that too much powder can impart to the skin. Hence, the formula is the best of both worlds, it is not heavy or greasy like a cream foundation but is not crumbly like a powder either. The initial few minutes that the product blends like a cream allow for the formula to seamlessly melt into the skin, thereby preventing any creasing. I enjoy this product more for spot touch-ups and for evening out my under eye area than for overall application on the face, but the formula is definitely suitable for that as well.
To sum it up, I feel that this cream to powder compact is a great on-the-go product for refreshing or enhancing your daily makeup look as and when needed. The price point of INR 599 is pretty good too considering the quantity of the product and the fact that it comes with a mirror. While I personally like to apply this product with my fingers, the sponge they provide can be useful for blending if you are using the compact on your entire face. I would say that if you are not a powder person then this product will be a right fit for you, and the fact that the brand has released 7 shades that range from light to deep makes it easier to find the right match for different skin tones. So grab yours now and I hope that this compact will become your new handbag buddy 🙂
