BSC Compact Review ★★★☆☆

Hello everyone,
It's been a while that I update my blog. I've been busy with my school and my social stuff. Today I'm going to review a brand named BSC. It is a brand from Thailand and it's a bit famous in my country, Myanmar. I got a compact powder as a gift from my best friend I am going to review about it.
Well, I got it around last year and I haven't been reviewed it for quite a while. I've been using it for a while and let me spoil you, I don't really like it that much. 
I like the packaging. It looks really chic and I like it about that it has huge mirror. 
Mine is the old design I believe. The new design of packaging is little and compact and portable as well. 
Ok, let's talk about specs. I don't know you can tell specs in cosmetics but whatever, I'm rolling with it. hehe ^^

For starters, it has great coverage. I'm really disappointed that it doesn't have a wide variety of skin tones to choose from and the problem I have with it is that the colour doesn't match me. It has a bit too dark on me which I don't like. If you like that tanned look, go for it. Everyone has their own preferences. So I'm just saying that I don't like the tanned look, if you like it, it might be great product for you.

Claims
It claims to be giving great coverage, long wearing, SPF and do not clog pores.

What I think:
Well, this part is totally my experience. I tried it for a couple of months non-stop and I got a bit of breakout here and there but I'm not sure the compact powder's fault or not. I'm a bit wowed by the great coverage that it gave me. I don't need to wear foundation or concealer underneath the powder and it still gives me flawless coverage. 
It has SPF 30 PA+++ in it. I don't know how it works so, I'm pretty neutral about sunscreens.
For long wearing, it doesn't long wear that much. Myanmar is a very humid and hot country and we don't use air-conditioning that much because electricity is expensive so, it doesn't long wear. After 3 hours then it's already oily and the make-up moved here and there so I don't like that.
Another thing that I don't like is that it does not have much selection for choosing the colours for my skin tone. The one that I have does not match me and I think it's really important for the foundation or powder.

Price
In Myanmar - Around 15,000 Kyats (16 USD)
On Amazon - 60 USD 
That is a very huge price difference. Well, you can check it out here.
Conclusion
Pros:
Great coverage
SPF 30 PA+++
Does not clog pores
Cons:
Not long lasting
small variety of colours
Expensive
Not easily accessible
Rating: 3/5
Recommend: If you have combination to normal skin, you can try this powder out. If you have oily skin, you will need either a long lasting primer underneath.
Repurchase: Maybe not. Because I want my foundation to match my skin and I want it long lasting.
