Nykaa has turned into a cosmetics brand after a successful stint in online retailing. For me their products have been a hit or miss. I tried the Nykaa So Matte Lipsticks and liked few of them. This is my second product from their makeup line and I bought Nykaa SKINgenius Skin Perfecting & Hydrating Compact only because it isn’t a mattifying life rest of the powders are.
Experience a luxurious, weightless texture that feels like your second-skin! Nykaa SKINgenius Compact seamlessly blends in your skin and perfects your complexion. The PolyLift technology allows the powder to melt in your skin, giving you a naturally radiant look. Enriched with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E, it ensures you stay fresh and hydrated round the clock. Never cakey, never dry, its velvety formula covers your imperfection to you give you a youthful, radiant complexion.
Packaging is matte black square case with a mirror and sponge applicator inside. The compact is bulky !
Shade – There are 3 shades available and I picked the darkest shade – Warm Honey. The shade is still half a shade light for me, but doesn’t look ashy since it has nice warm tones. Unfortunately if you are darker than me , there isn’t any shade available.
Texture & Formula – The Nykaa SKINgenius powder has a soft and smooth texture. It doesn’t feel powdery at all. I like how it offers a sheer finish without being drying, working perfectly for my skin type. I love using it as a setting powder on everyday basis. There is a lot of kick back and fall out in the pan, i am not sure why because i have used smoother formula like this with minimum powder kick back. You get 9G of product which is a decent quantity.
Coverage – Nykaa SKINgenius powder offers sheer coverage. It is perfect for setting your BB cream or under eye concealer since it has a finely milled formula that doesn’t look cake-y
Nykaa SKINgenius Skin Perfecting & Hydrating Compact is priced at Rs 525
I am quite happy with the texture & smooth formula. The sheer coverage powder is good for setting makeup or everyday use. Nykaa SKINgenius Skin Perfecting & Hydrating Compact comes with a nice mirror and sponge applicator that makes it perfect for travelling.
