Price: Rs. 475
I am back again with another Lakme release and this time it is the foundation brush from the Lakme Absolute range. I have reviewed three of the other brushes from this range, the eye shader, powder brush and the lip brush and now this foundation brush. The overall response I have been getting is that these are definitely overpriced since we have a separate notion for Lakme altogether. Since these bear the Lakme Absolute tag, these have been priced like this, but still, they could have done better for an introductory price.
They have also come up with a powder puff for Rs. 90 I believe and that can be used for wet and dry compact. I did not buy it because that was not only useless, but also overpriced. Nevertheless, the ones I have reviewed are definitely good quality, I don’t have any complaints about them, apart from the price tag and that too with these being introductory!
The brush is very sturdy looking, shiny black metal and looks gorgeous, no doubt. The bristles are synthetic and look very fresh as in they shine so bright and sure very packed with bristles and not sparse. The bristles are also firm and still very soft to apply.
I do have two more foundation brushes, one from ELF and another from Oriflame, which don’t look so superior to me. The ELF one is fine and golden in color. The Oriflame Foundation Brush is very similar to this, but not so tightly packed. All of them work fine for me, but still the quality of this one shouts out loud even when you hold it for the very first time.
The application of foundation, mainly liquid is very fine with this. I thoroughly enjoy the process and I also apply my cream foundation with this brush, the stick foundation. I think there is nothing missing as far the whole process of applying the foundation with this one goes. The finish is fine, not streaky, and so much better than applying foundation with fingers.
You can also go under the eyes with the tip of this brush when I use the stick concealer, but obviously, its not meant for that. Apart from that, I feel everything is fine. The packing, the sturdy wand, and the bristles don’t fall off at all.
I have washed it often since I am phobic towards contracting acne bacteria. I wash my brushes often and still this one is jolly well packed and doesn’t shed or lose colour.
Overpriced but very good quality. This one is for keeps, sturdy, pretty, and works just fine. Lakme Absolute should have come up with variants of more eyeshadow brushes, but meanwhile, I like how they have come up with the basic good-quality brushes in the form of powder brush, a tiny eye shader brush, and the lip brush and I am positive that if you invest in these, then they will last longer, but I agree that Lakme has capitalized on the dearth of basic brushes we have and hence this might be one of the reasons they are priced like this!
