Inglot Pressed Powder No 14 (Rs 900)
I am someone who survives on concealer & pressed powder. That’s all I can do in 3 minutes which is what I get while going out. But finding a perfect match that too in budget in India is like a treasure hunt. I was using Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder but it started breaking me out, then I bought Colorbar Perfect Match Powder which despite being the darkest shade in the range, was light for me. So I went to Inglot to find a perfect shade for me since it is a professional brand and offers lots of shades in one product and came across Inglot Pressed Powder. They didn’t have compact in stock (in my shade) so I had to settle for the pan.
The compact just costs Rs 300 more than the pan and I would have picked it undoubtedly had they have my shade in stock.
Shade – Inglot Pressed Powder No 14 is a beige toned powder, which means it is neither yellow nor pink = perfect match for me.
Texture & Formula – The texture of Inglot Pressed Powder is soft & hence a swirl in the pan kicks off a lot of product/ fall out, Which is weird. However once applied on the skin it doesn’t feel heavy or look cakey. Formula is neither hydrating not mattifying which makes it good for all skin types. I like to use it to set my concealer and foundation and it does that effortlessly without packing too much product.
It wouldn’t control oil , which is something oily skin girls look for in a product. It is quite hot in delhi these days and I tend to get shine on my T Zone at the end of the day. You can either do touch ups or use a blotting sheet for the same.
Coverage – Like I mentioned above, it is quite sheer, so it wouldn’t be offering any coverage. It is good if used as a setting powder but wouldn’t work as a powder foundation.
I have been using Inglot Pressed Powder non stop ever since I bought it last month. The texture is smooth & fine, with no shimmer (if you are curious). Also it sets the makeup without adding too much pigment/powder which is what I look for to in a pressed powder. The powder isn’t a mattifying one or keeps skin matte for a long time though. I am eyeing the compact as it would be perfect to carry in the bag and touch ups on the move.
