Hi everyone, I am writing a review after a long time. Today I am going to write about a budget friendly brand called Meylon. It is practically available in all the beauty stores and in the beginning I was not confident in trying this brand. But now I am really liking it for the affordability of the products.

It is sold for around Rs. 500/- You can always get a discount if you buy it online.
In Detail Meylon Paris Compact Powder Review and My Experience
Meylon compact powder comes in a very nice dark black coloured pan. There is a transparent lid through which we can have a look at the actual product. Melon has also given a powder puff which I really like. I normally used to use the Lakme 9 to 5 compact powder but one day I was at my beauty store and just thought I will give this a try. Meylon compact comes in a lot of shades, I got the shade 504 for my fair-medium skin tone.
The compact texture is really smooth and very finely milled. I like how satiny it feels on my skin. It has a slight smell of flowers and I love it while I am applying this in the mornings
How I Use it
I have been using it everyday when I goto work. I usually apply light makeup and then on top I finish with this compact powder in gentle patting manner. I never rub the compact puff on my facial skin.
The compact surprisingly is quite nice. It controls oils on my face well. I usually travel my the metro train and it really gets hot inside with so much of rush. My skin used to get so oily amidst all of this but now I can really see the difference. My skin does not get so oily and my makeup keeps looking fresh.
The only problem would be, it does work only for around 3-4 hours. After this my skin starts getting oily if I am exposed to hot temperature. Another down side of the product is, it is not very blendable. If I apply more than normal, my makeup starts looking powdery (if you know what I mean). So if you are buying this, always apply it in moderate quantity. I also wish there was a mirror provided with this product.
