Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 PA+++ Compact Review

Hello Beauties

How are you all?

Today, I came up with another beauty product review. While browsing online I came across this new compact launched by Lakme. What excited me the most was that it has SPF. Now, nobody wants an extra layer of sun protection, especially in summers. So, I immediately placed an order, and here I am reviewing it for you all. Let’s see how this product fared for me.

So let’s dive into a detailed review.

The product comes in a universal shade that claims to suit every skin tone. It gives me a natural and bright texture. Basically, I have fair to whitish skin tone and this works pretty well for me as it doesn’t leave any white tone on my face. So, it is good for all skin tones as it basically just acts as a setting powder. You can also use it as your everyday face powder.

Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte Compact SPF 40 claims to have the goodness of sunscreen in a makeup compact. Lakme says it provides high coverage layer on the skin, which in turn provides protection from harmful sun rays. It provides light coverage to my skin, which is nice for regular, everyday looks.

The compact powder feels so smooth on the skin and blends well with a brush. It provides a decently soft and smooth skin tone with hiding my little spots. It has a nice floral fragrance. I would say that it works pretty well for me!

But if you have dry skin, then you need a moisturizing base. It might highlight your dry flakes too. It basically does not give you any sort of coverage. In fact, when you will try to layer it up, it will give you a white cast due to the presence of high SPF in it. But if you fo for a normal light hand application provides a fresh, silky, and matte finish that lasts long. It helps prevent creasing as well. I can use it even on my bare face to make my skin look fresh and bright.

This compact has SPF 40, but that alone cannot keep skin protected from sun damage.

All in all, I think it is a great product at an affordable price. You can definitely use it as a daily face powder.
