We all know how much we love Makeup. It is more like an addiction to collecting makeup. Nykaa is no doubt is a great platform when it comes to buying cosmetics. Nykaa launched their own line of cosmetics recently, and SKINgenius compact is a part of their newly launched goodies along with some other products. I couldn’t wait and thought to give it a try. 😇
Today’s post will be dedicated to SKINgenius compact only so let’s get into the details.

👉 Packaging: Comes in a solid plastic box with basic compact packaging. The closing lid is safe and tight which means you can carry it in your handbags. It has a separate area for its applicator sponge, unlike the other compacts. The outer box packaging has everything of important information except the Price. Which was Strange. When I received this the powder was spilling over on the sides and mirror.
👉 My Experience: First thing first, I didn’t like the applicator, that is the sponge. It has too much of rubber content in it and I felt like it is leaving an uneven amount of powder on my skin. So I opted for the Brush to use it. I like the Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Pad more. I have been using that on a repetitive basis.
I don’t know why but after several applications I found that cake got a minor crack in it. What can be the reason? 😒
Before moving on to the powder, let me tell you that have I have Combination to Oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin. I am using this compact with a brush and I am quite satisfied. The powder instantly covered the shine and tiny-miny opened pores giving my skin a smooth finished look. I am totally happy with the shade I picked. 😇 It didn’t turn out cakey or oily even after hours.
After a few hours, what I noticed that it definitely controlled the facial oil or sweat. Say anything, but My face was not getting loaded with sweat when I went out for hours. True to the claim and it didn’t clog my pores. Though after 4-5 hours the pore reduction effect was faded off.
Price factor plays an important role esp. when two products are nearly the same plus how many time you have to use that product in your daily routine. For me, a compact is something like which I use only on weekends. I have been using Maybelline compact only and I think that will remain no.1 for me because that is affordable and I love everything about that.
Why go for a costlier product when we can have an affordable substitute for it. I am not saying I didn’t like it or it is bad or something. It is just something a comparison between nearly the same products. If I talk about only and only Nykaa Compact, then yes, I liked it except that sponge.
A point to be noted here, some of my blogger buddies have to say that they didn’t like it much. So I guess it is not a “Fit for All” compact. Maybe because I have oily skin and that’s why it worked for me.
It says it is hydrating but it didn’t find any hydrating effect or anything or I am not able to track the hydration effect in a compact. But because it kept my skin oil-free, it may not be a good option for dry skin.
If I will find it worth it will be only because it is Paraben Free and Non-Comedogenic and has Hyaluronic Acid. These three points really can make any product special. If you are someone who uses a compact on a daily basis then you can go for this.
I am a Maybelline Lover and I will buy their product just because I love Maybelline. This can happen with you too towards Nykaa. If you are someone who is Nykaa Range Lover then you will like it because it is not a bad one. Hope you will understand my thoughts here. 🙂
