Croquis Alight Pact - review and swatches


We received this powder luminiser in Memebox Special #36 Meme's Pouch and it's easily the best makeup item I've received from Memebox. Not only that, it's also one of the best powder luminisers I've used.

It's not Hourglass, but it's definitely up there and it's my go-to product for highlighting my eyes. It's also subtle enough to use as an all-over finishing powder. It just adds a nice sheen and there's not a fleck of glitter in sight. Hallelujah. 

Croquis claims/product details:
  • Natural covering powder magically fades fine lines and imperfections with its 'soft-focus' effect
  • Gives a luminous and even look to the skin
  • Also provides long-lasting make-up effect and protects the skin
  • Contains coloured marble powders that give your skin more definition and a fine lustre for a nice, silky finish to your makeup
  • Apply to areas where you want more definition and shine
  • RRP $35 for 10g

Both the compact and the powder itself are good-looking items. I'm not going to lie to you - those things make a difference to me! I've got the compact and the box it comes in out on display on my dresser shelves because they look so pretty.

The powder is sheer and finely milled, and adds a nice sheen without any noticeable glitter.

I absolutely love this product. This item alone almost made my somewhat rocky journey with Memebox worth it.

I said almost.

As you may know, I found the quality of the products in Memeboxes pretty patchy - particularly the makeup items. But this little pact is wonderful and I'm so glad I own it.

It's sheer, finely milled and applies like a dream. You can use it all over your face as a setting powder to add a slight, natural glow, or as a spot highlighter. It works well for both purposes and I'm getting a lot of use from it.

As mentioned, it's my go-to product for highlighting the inner corners of my eyes when I don't want to look like I've chucked sparkles on my face. You know how I feel about noticeable glitter - thank god for products like this one! I much prefer sheen to shimmer.

As a setting powder, it's not drying at all and that's a huge plus for me because my skin tends towards dryness and very few powders don't make that worse. This one does its job without drying out my skin or giving me lines I never knew I had.

In sum, I love this product and can't fault it. I'll be very sad when I finish it and might have to source another one!

So many ticks. I've given it an HG tag : )
