New launch again on IMBB and this time it is our very own Lakme. They have come up with this weightless foundation in 4 shades, in the 9 to 5 range. I got the shade 03, Beige Caramel. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Price – Rs 575/- for 29gm
My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation:
The foundation comes in an inverted slender tube with a golden cap. The body is rose gold, like the typical 9 to 5 range. The shade name is mentioned on the outer paper carton and on the tube as well. I quite like the slim handy tube, which can be easily carried along in makeup pouch.
Lakme has totally taken a firm stand in designing the product as per the claims. It is really weightless and feels like nothing on the skin. It adds a velvety texture to the skin and no matter how many layers you put on the face, the foundation does not look cakey.
As much as I love the lightweight texture, I have some complains regarding the pigmentation. If you are blessed with flawless skin, this can be an ideal pick for you. But it is so less pigmented that I would call it a BB cream at the most. It does not cover blemishes or acne marks. But it definitely gives a fresh dewy look to the face which is much coveted, especially in the winters.
Overall I really like the product, mainly due to the texture and also I was lucky to get my skin tone match; but the lesser number of shades and low pigmentation is something that might be a turn off. Also the 4 shades available are very close to each other, so do not expect a variety there as well.
