Hey all, so today I am up with a compact review. I liked to try different compact or powder foundations. My skin is of the combination type so I keep compacts handy for touch ups. So I thought of giving Street Wear brand a try. Street Wear is one such brand which has got extremely affordable products to offer. I find this brand great for those who are new to make up or for college going girls. They have a great shade range and it’s fun to try their products who are new to playing with colors.
About Street Wear: Street Wear is a subordinate brand of Revlon, which provides you with all types of make up like powders, foundations, eye liners, lipsticks, lip glosses.
Street Wear All Day Compact is available on all the Street Wear retail stores and you can buy it online on amazon and such regular websites. This is a matte finish compact which claims to give a medium coverage and keep oiliness at bay throughout the day while not making the skin dry.
Price: INR 230/- for 10g
I picked Street Wear All Day Compact in the shade “Blush Matte”. They have a good shade selection and this shade was somewhat slight lighter for me. So I use this only for touchups during my work. It comes in a purple colored casing which has a mirror inside it.
The compact is to be used on a moisturizing base. I prefer to use it over my BB or CC cream. This compact doesn’t make your skin feel dry and it gives a medium coverage. Also it stays for around 4-5 hours without making your skin oily or greasy.
You need to have some moisturizing base before applying this compact else it will settle down into fine lines and make the face look patchy. Street Wear All Day compact is great for using in summers but I totally avoid it during winters. It’s a good product for combination skin and oily skin but I would suggest that dry skin beauties stay away from it.
The product is mineral based and it does not provide any SPF protection so make sure that you have a SPF moisturizer applied before using this. It would have been great if they included sun protection but at this price whatever they are providing is good enough. It has a shelf life of 3 years which is great.
Here is a swatch of the product:
- Moisturizing along with matte finish.
- Stays for 4-5 hours.
- Affordable and easily available.
- Travel friendly.
- Great for touchups.
- Light on skin and provides medium coverage.
- Settles into fine lines when the base is not moisturizing enough.
- Does not have SPF protection.
Overall I liked the product but not that I will be repurchasing it, I would like to try other such compacts which are good for touch ups and extremely light on skin. Well if you wish to try this out please go ahead for it and let me know if you liked it.
