Loreal True Match Compact Powder,Mineral Powder Foundation and Infallible 24h Compact are really great compact options especially for oily-acne prone skin.Texture wise,quality wise Loreal Mat Magique is a good budget option.It contains sunscreen,provides decent oil control,coverage and matte finish.I do wish it was completely non-comedogenic like its other compact powders.It didn’t break me out as my skin is not highly acne prone.I do like the pricing point from Loreal making it more affordable.This compact is good for every day,light-weight make up and definitely better than the other compacts in the price range available in the market.If you are looking for budget friendly option,then definitely check it out.
