Its been such a long time that my hand is even shaking to pen down my thoughts. I had no motivation lately coz of the hectic work schedule, friend’s engagement party, monsoon trip. All of this kept me busy throughout the weeks. Oh also how can I forget that I shifted to a new place last Sunday. But today I want to speak about a perfect Sunday that I spent in Bungalow 9, Bandra on 17 July. I was invited for the Fair & Lovely Powder Cream Event and I was really curious to know about the new product. I thought it would be a boring day where there would be a speech, goodies will be given and then we can leave. Guess what? It was a super engaging and fun event. We were engaged into games and activities back to back. There was team effort and active participation from all the bloggers. All girls gel around very well due to the team building activities. There were goodies for every activity, which was also a great motivation. In the meanwhile, bloggers were called one by one for product testing. We had our whole day scheduled. Time just flew away and then we had to wrap up. We clicked a lot of pictures before leaving and it felt like it was a graduation picture where all of us got in the frame and clicked a Happy Picture. Everyone had a great time and left with a happy face.

My Experience with FAL Powder Cream– I wore the product for the entire event and looked fresh and bright whole day long. I thought maybe I should try and spend a whole hectic week of my usual work-life and then decide on how it fares. So my usual Monday to Friday is at work spending 9:30am to 6:30pm. I applied the FAL powder cream at 8am and it felt like a moisturising cream, I applied it in dots on my forehead, neck, chin and cheeks. My face looked bright and fresh and the cream settled in quickly giving me a smooth, matte, bright look. There was no oiliness or stickiness whatsoever. There is no coverage or foundation in this cream. So even though it mattifies well, there was no need for a powder touch-up. I like a bit of coverage in my creams. So I ended up using my compact on this cream and was done for the day. During my lunch, I checked in mirror if I need any touch-up but my face was still matte and fresh. So I continued with work and around 5pm my friend asked to catch up after work for a friend’s house party. I thought now atleast I have to touch-up. To my surprise, the face still looked fresh and I only re-applied my kajal and lipstick. I reached home around 11pm and while washing my face I realised damn my face doesn’t look like I work all day. I usually use bbcream on an average day and I know how dull my face looks at the end of the day. I was super impressed and happy with the product and wore it to work daily. On days when I apply make up, I love using this as a face primer and trust me it works like magic as a face brightener + primer. There is no sunscreen protection in the cream, I wish they would add some SPF to the product; it would have been All-in-one. Overall, I Enjoyed the FAIR & LOVELY Powder cream. It is super affordable, it makes your face look bright and matte for the whole day, on my combination skin there was no traces of oiliness found. I wouldn’t say this cream would make you fair and white, no cream can do that. But it definitely makes you Bright. This would be a perfect product for a college goer to a working woman. After all who wants a heavy foundation feel every day?

Rating – 4.5/5
Recommendation – I am so glad that it is not like those typical product which claims to make you fair. It gives you a fair, bright and matte look for 14hrs. It would be perfect for college girls as well as working women. As the product is very pocket friendly, this is very well-suited for its audience. The product easily would last a month even if used daily. I will highly recommend this product if you are bored of the regular bb/cc creams. This product will be a value addition as it’s actually a unique product.
