Essence Soft Touch Mousse Make-Up-02 Matte Beige Review

Hello Peeps,

I am experimenting a lot with make-up bases recently because none of them give the kind of coverage I need. And a foundation or base can totally change the entire look of the skin, that’s why it is pretty necessary to get the perfect finish and shade. The hunt goes on and I got this one to try out since essence is one cute brand that I really like! Read to know how this worked for my combination skin.

Price: Rs 499/-

Essence Soft Touch Mousse Make-Up 02 Matte Beige

Product Description by Essence:
The make-up range with a super delicate mousse texture gives your face a smooth and natural-looking matt complexion while allowing your skin to breathe freely.

My Experience with Essence Soft Touch Mousse Make-Up-02 Matte Beige:

I haven’t really tried a lot of mousse before and the only one I have tried till date is Maybelline dream matte mouse. I love that velvety feeling hence gave this a shot! The mousse comes in a beige coloured tub which is made up of glass but it is pretty sturdy. The packaging is cute and small which makes it easy to carry. This range has 3 shades I guess and ivory which means the first shade was too light for me. The 2nd shade matched my skin tone brilliantly. I wish there were more shades, but I will not complain since it is a drugstore brand. The flaw with the packaging is that I have long nails and the only option to take it is with my fingers, hence this sticks all over my nails.

The mousse is very soft and velvety smooth in consistency. It does not have any gritty texture which is why the coverage is flawless. The thing what I loved is that it matched my skin-tone perfectly which made it look even more natural. Only some little dips are needed to cover the entire face and the neck. It covers the uneven skin-tone very well and also the redness around my nose and below the chin. It also hides all the imperfections very well.

It will not totally hide the under eyes darkness but is capable enough to hide 80% of it. It will not hide major imperfections but I don’t have really big ones. It will not be really suitable for dry patches because it will cling to parched areas. It gives medium coverage but I have a trick to get heavy coverage. First I dab it on my blemishes and pimples like a concealer which totally covers it and then apply a layer all over my face. This give me a flawless coverage and it looks like my face has no imperfections.

The finish is totally matte which hides all the excess shine and does not let oil come up on the face. It keeps my face matte for 5 hours and then I can notice a bit of oil on my cheeks and nose area. The mousse in all stays for 7-8 hours depending upon the skin type during the current season and I think during summer, it might be reduced by an hour or two. But be cautious with it because excess application might make it cakey. I really loved how affordable this mousse is and it perfectly suits my skin but those who do not like heavy mousses will not like this.

A super good mousse which acts as a flawless and a very natural looking base to the make-up.. it suits my skin perfectly and does not make my skin oily.. however women with very oily skin can try it at the counter once.. it keeps my face matte for a very long time and covers all the imperfections brilliantly making my face look bright and glowing! I am very impressed with this one :-)
