Review – Olivia Compact Powder In The Shade Natural Ivory
After makeup application, I always need to set my base with a good compact powder or loose powder. As my facial skin is very oily. Even on a daily basis (without makeup base) I need to use a good compact powder to keep the facial oil at bay or under control. I was using loose powder before, but now as I also have to travel, I was looking for a good, travel-friendly compact to use. And I got lucky to receive two products from Olivia cosmetics. (The other is the foundation stick. I will be reviewing it soon.) So I have used Olivia compact powder enough and here is my review!
Review – Olivia Compact Powder
The packaging is okay, I do not have any complaints regarding its packaging. It is purple in color and comes with a good quality puff. But most importantly, I am thankful that it has a mirror. The compact case comes in a box and both the compact and the box has all the important details mentioned on it.
For the application, I use my powder brush when I am at home. And on my travels, I use the puff. I remember, the powder carried a chemical fragrance during my first few uses. Now, after using it daily, the fragrance has been replaced with a pleasant one. (Still concerned why the fragrance was different before.)
As my complexion is fair, I ordered for the shade 01 Natural Ivory. It suits my complexion very well and blends into my skin perfectly. The compact not only gives a natural finish but also makes my skin appear bright and fresh. That is, my skin does not appear dull. So I can say that it gives light to medium coverage and evens out the skin tone to a great extent.
As my facial skin is very oily, normally it gets oily within an hour. But when I use this compact it looks shine-free for up to two hours. It also does not give any white cast or whitish look, skin looks completely natural and healthy.
I have been using this compact powder on a daily basis for two weeks. And I did not notice any breakouts caused by using this compact powder. And as I like the finish which it gives, I am going to continue using this compact.

I love it!
The brand has been in the market for a really long time but this is my first time using their makeup products. As of now, my daily compact need is sufficed – bright, light coverage, and oil-free look! If you have oily skin and are on the lookout for a good budget friendly and travel-friendly compact powder then I suggest you check out Olivia compact powder.
