Hope all are doing well.
Today I am going to review a foundation. In fact this is my first review of any foundation, so am excited about it. Foundations are my first love in buying makeup items.
So the brand today I am going to review is Lakme. Lakme is a very well known brand from India. Previously it was considered as a drugstore brand, but now it has joined the league of high end brands in terms of price. So without further ado let's go to my review.
It claims that it is a super long wearing foundation that gives medium to high coverage. It's gel cream texture blends perfectly to give skin like coverage.
Now sharing my experience I will start with packaging. Lakme foundation comes in a black cardboard packaging. Inside there is black plastic squeezable bottle with black cap. The bottle has a nozzle to squeeze out the product. I like the packaging because it is travel friendly and with nozzle you can take out right amount of product. No wastage.
Now coming to the product inside. It has thick creamy consistency. When applied on skin you have to work a little hard to blend it. Also it sets quickly so you have to work faster for blending. What I do is I dilute it by adding a little moisturizer with it mix it well at the back of my hand and then apply it on my face. Second thing you can do is apply it with a wet sponge.
After setting it gives me a matte finish. It gives medium to full coverage. After applying it I don't find any need for concealer. I start applying with minimum product and then take more as needed. In this way it doesn't feel cakey on my skin.
Lasting power is also good. It stays for 6-7 hours on my face. Actually I haven't tried for more time I am sure it can stay much longer. But in this hot humid weather nothing lasts longer on my face ( if I am going out). But while staying indoors staying power is good.
Girls I got it as a gift from friend in shade 05 Beige Honey, so I am not sure whether it is available in stores or not. You can check different online pages for its availability.
In short I would say that it is a good foundation that gives a matte finish and good staying power. Only one thing that bothers me is its consistency that is thick which takes more time for blending. But otherwise it is a good addition in my makeup items.
Girls that was all about it. Has any one of you tried this foundation before?
