I prefer using a loose powder over a compact powder because a loose powder can also be used to bake the face. I have had this Lakme rose powder for as long as I can remember and the quantity in which it comes is great keeping the price in mind! So today I will be reviewing this loose rose powder from the brand Lakme. It comes in two shades- soft pink and warm pink. The shade soft pink was suggested to me by the counter girl at the store from where I have purchased it. Without further ado let’s dive into the review!

The brown colored jar comes packed in a box which I have discarded a long time ago. It also had a puff in the jar to apply powder with. The puff was too rough for my skin so I had discarded it. I use a face powder brush for application. There is a lid which separates the loose powder and the puff. The transparent lid has tiny holes in it to take out the powder.

Color and Texture

The shade soft pink suits well on my complexion. This shade is suggested for light complexion and for dusky or darker complexion you can go for the shade ‘warm pink’. The powder is finely milled.


It has a strong fragrance which some may like and some may not. It doesn’t bother me much as it disappears within a few seconds. I would describe the fragrance as something similar to a ‘fake rose’ fragrance/perfumes.

How to Use Lakme Rose Powder

I don’t remove the lid because then the powder is all over the place. (Messy!) So what I do is- I sprinkle some of the powder in the jar’s cap and then I dip my face powder brush in it.

I use this loose powder to-

  1. Bake my under eye area
  2. Set my makeup
  3. While touch-ups to remove shine

This is just like any other face powder. If you have oily skin like mine which gets oily say within an hour then this powder controls the oil for almost 2 hours. After which reapplication is required as the face starts appearing shiny. But if your skin is normal then it will last very long on you.


Just like any other face powder, it gives a smooth and matte finish. The powder is very finely milled so it does not stick to dry patches of the skin. And it can be blended into the skin evenly. It won’t give you a white cast and flashback while taking photos.

I don’t go out in the sun much so can not comment on the ‘sunscreen’ part.

Pros of Lakme Rose Powder

  • Decent price
  • Finely milled
  • Does not give a white cast
  • Does not give flashback
  • 1 jar will last for a really long time
  • Contains sunscreen
  • Gives natural finish
  • No breakouts observed

Cons of Lakme Rose Powder

Contains parabens even though it looks like in small percentages.

Final Verdict

I like it!
I have been using this face powder for like forever. The quantity is so good on this one! It’s a basic affordable loose powder to set your makeup, remove shine whilst instantly brightening your skin to look fresh. But yes it does not give any form of coverage nor does it claim to. That said, it is perfect for daily usage. Anyways what else could you ask from a loose powder like this one? Have you used it? Which is your favorite loose powder? 🙂

  2. Jhilmil D Saha says:

    This is a much affordable option for expensive setting powders available. Thanks for the honest review

  3. Shubhreet Kaur says:

    I prefer this shade as well. And lakme has great quality products. I havent really tried their foundations or powders but love their shadows and kajals. Will try this powder too.

  4. Varsh says:

    I remember my Mom using rose powder but it has always been compact for me. This looks good too. Guess can give it a try.

  5. Neha Tambe says:

    Lived your review. I use this too. I liked the tip of not opening the lid and getting some sprinkled in the lid.

  6. Noor Anand Chawla says:

    Thank you for the review Snehal. Unfortunately, some of the Lakme face products break me out so I avoid them.

  7. Sakshi@tripleamommy says:

    Thanks for a comprehensive review. I don’t v really yet make up, but this review is inspiring me to try it for casual occasions at least. By the way… What does baking mean in reference to make up?!

    • Snehal says:

      I know this term sounds funny in reference to makeup! 😀 Actually what you do is you apply some powder on your under eyes area and other areas to highlight. Let it stay for a while. Then using a brush you smoothen that powder out. That is baking! In makeup! 😀

  8. GiGi Eats says:

    I am a powder kind of person too. It’s just so much LIGHTER on your face and you don’t have to worry as much about it getting EVERYWHERE. That being said, I am not really a make up person, so I don’t wear too much, but this stuff does look nice!

  9. Deepika says:

    It would be better If comes without paraben. I very rarely use makeup. I like to use baby powders maybe it will sound funny.

  10. Lyosha says:

    I don’t wear much makeup on daily basis but the product looks interesting especially for the events I visit regularly. very nicely put! love the post!

  11. Mayuri Patel says:

    Snehal though I don’t use much make up, I like reading your posts. I learn a lot from them. Like for me bake means to bake food… new term I learnt today ‘bake my Under eye makeup.’ You have lovely glowing skin, no one would guess that its oily.

  12. Ashley | One Journey Away says:

    I used to use loose powder but for whatever reason, I switched to a compact powder. May have to look into switching back!

  13. Tracy C says:

    I love that this powder has sunscreen in it. I usually can’t see the difference in before and after photos, but this time, I can. You look great!

  14. Swagata says:

    I prefer a loose powder as well for very similar reasons as you mentioned here. I have used Lakme quite a lot as it is very popular in India and affordable compared to many other brands!

  15. The Sunny Side Lifestyle Co. says:

    Although I do not wear make-up on a daily basis, I appreciate that this product has a built-in sunscreen. Sun protection is important to me when choosing a new product.

  16. jerry godinho says:

    I need to show this to my wife and daughter and so they can decide for themselves. An important thing to know is the product used on animals before it comes to the market and what are the side affects of using it on the skin

  17. Diane C DeNicola says:

    I prefer a loose powder as well as opposed to a compact for many of the same reasons. I have never heard of Lakame before but the fact that it has sunscreen as well is appealing to me being that I am outside often. Thank you for the review. I will have to give this brand a try.
