How to apply Lakme Nine to Five Flawless Makeup?
This foundation is quite tricky to apply. DO NOT apply it either with finger tips or foundation brush. Apply it with a damp sponge. Dot foundation on your face and next and lightly blend the foundation in a downward direction from hairline to neckline. it using a damp sponge. I also noticed dry flakes around my nose after I applied the foundation. To combat that, I apply a dilute solution of glycerin and water around my nose after I am done with my base makeup (concealer+foundation + powder). Voila! no dry patches after that. The real glow of the foundation comes after 5-7 minutes of application. It smooths and evens out the skin tone pretty well.
Will I but Lakme Nine to Five Flawless Makeup again?
Honestly, I am not dissatisfied with the product at all. It is a good product especially for people who are looking to hide their acne scars or blemishes. It is also an excellent evening or nighttime foundation. I might repurchase it.
