Last year in my Loose versus pressed powder post, I promised that I would do a review on Yves Saint Laurent's Poudre Compact Radiance. At the time that I was writing that post, I hadn't had the chance to try it yet but by now I have been able to form an opinion on it.
This week I bought the same powder again and I guess that speaks for itself. Here is what I like about Compact Radiance:
- Provides great coverage
- Delivers a natural look
- Efficiently mattifies
- Long lasting, few touch ups needed
While the packaging looks super chic and holds well in my hand, I am not so much a fan of the pouch that comes with it and which has a separate sleeve for the puff. But that's a detail that I can live with. For now this is my favourite pressed powder. See all available shades here.
