I am sharing a review of the newly-launched foundation from Lakme. This foundation is from the Lakme Face Stylist range. I already own a blush from the range and I also picked up a foundation and compact. I love my MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation (NC 43), but it makes me look tad bit orange-y, so I picked up this one from Lakme. Read on to know more about this product.
Rs. 1200 for 39 ml.
Super long wearing foundation that delivers high comfort and new skin finishes with medium to heavy coverage. This sensorial gel like creamy texture blends perfectly to give an even and weightless skin- like coverage.
The Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Foundation comes in a black rectangular bottle. The body of the bottle is matte and the cap is glossy. The bottle has a very fine nozzle to dispense out the foundation. The packaging of the bottle leads to absolutely no product wastage. The solid black bottle is opaque and one cannot make out how much product is left. The foundation is available in 6 shades. I picked up the shade 05 Biege Honey.
Texture and Consistency:
It has a gel-like creamy and smooth texture. The foundation has quite a thin creamy consistency which helps blend quickly to give an even and flawless finish. You really don’t have to do any hard work for blending in the foundation. It blends with a light hand, so comfortably like I am applying a good coverage BB cream. The foundation feels light on the skin and does give the second skin feeling as the brand claims. It is weightless and blends perfectly. The formula of the foundation is really impressive.
I tried using my fingers and also a duo fiber brush to apply the foundation. It works fine with both, but with a brush, you can get a perfect finish. The foundation gives medium to full heavy coverage. You can apply a few dots and blend it for a very natural and light finish and also build it up for a heavy coverage. The foundation easily covers up all the blemishes and dark spots.
The formula blends and spreads evenly into the skin and gives a nice matte finish. The foundation wore on for a good 10 hours on me and it did not get cakey or patchy. It did not oxidize on me and it gave me pretty natural finish. I picked up the shade “Beige Honey,” which matches my skin tone really well and almost perfect. My hands are fairer than my face, so it looks orangey in the hand swatch. The foundation is free from SPF, which might be bothersome, but for me, it is perfect as it can photograph well.
Pros of Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Foundation:
- Good packaging, compact and travel friendly.
- Weightless formula.
- It applies evenly and blends well giving a very natural finish.
- It provides medium to heavy coverage.
- It is a long-wearing foundation.
- Did not oxidize on me.
- It gives a nice matte finish.
- No SPF – photographs really well.
- 39 ml, good amount of product.
Cons of Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Foundation:
- Opaque packaging.
- I am sure, duskier and dark skinned girls will have difficulty in finding a perfect match.
- Price, it is expensive for a drugstore brand. They already hiked the Lakme face stylish blush duo price from Rs. 750 to Rs. 1000. I am sure, this foundation’s price will also go up.
Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Foundation?
Yes, absolutely. I found a good match and I will repurchase it, if I don’t find a better one. I recommend it to everyone for the amazing formula. If you can find a good match and don’t mind the price, do try it, you will like it.
