Lakmé Perfect radiance Intense Whitening Compact - Medium

Hi Girls ! In the hot Indian weather the one thing you can't do without is a compact to blot that excess oil and make you look fresh through out .So last time when I went to get my makeup staple at the Lakme counter (because it gives me the perfect match ) the SA gave me this one though I was sceptic about it as it said "whitening" and who wants to look all ghostly an white-y ? But he convinced me that is is actually pressed powder only , no white effect will show ...I got it in the shade Golden Medium 03 which is the closest to my skin tone .It is available in 6 shades with Ivory Fair being the lightest one and the Rose Honey being the darkest . The six shades have both warm and cool tones so there is one for every complexion .                     Price - Rs 200 /-   for 8 gms . I found it reasonable as this would  easily last about 3 months even with daily use .                                         PROS of  Lakmé Perfect radiance Intens
