Out of the numerous foundations and foundation-wannabes that I have tried, only two have matched my shade perfectly. Every other foundation was either too light, ashy, or just too dark for my skin tone. Lakme Face Magic Souffle is just perfect for my skin and I will tell you why 🙂
Discover Lakme’s Face Magic Daily Wear Souffle. A lightweight water-based foundation that gently evens out your complexion. With the goodness of sunscreen, cucumber extracts, and vitamin E, it provides UV protection in addition to soothing and moisturising your skin, giving you a natural flawless glow.
Rs. 99 for 30 ml.
There is no mention of ingredients surprisingly!
My Take on Lakme Face Magic Daily Wear Souffle:
This stuff is real good! This souffle from Lakme comes in three shades, Pearl, Marble, and Shell. Pearl and Marble are for lighter skin tones and Shell is for wheatish and dusky skin tones. The souffle comes in a cute, little, and heavy glass pot with a screw on cap. There is a plastic lid that prevents spillage.
The souffle is of the consistency of molten lava in a molten lava cake 😛 (I am terribly hungry, I should just have said souffle :P). The souffle smells mildly of cucumber and does not linger on. One can use a foundation brush or fingers to take out the foundation, I use my fingers and dot on and then blend it with fingers. This needs to be set with a compact or loose powder, otherwise it tends to come off easily if you sweat or use a tissue.
I chose the shade Shell and it blends into my skin perfectly without getting cakey or ashy on my skin tone. It provides light coverage and is best for every day wear. College-going girls and working women would love it because it gives that smooth flawless finish yet does not make the face look heavily “made up.” Another feature about this souffle foundation is that it is water based and hence noncomedogenic. I never had a breakout with this foundation (I usually break out into zits if wear a particular foundation for over 3 hours, I know weird!).
Lakme claims that there is sunscreen in this, but there is no SPF value mentioned, so I guess you cannot rely on this foundation for sun protection and would definitely have to use a sunscreen underneath.
Oily skin can skip using moisturizer beneath the foundation. I usually do not need a moisturizer because it does not make those dry patches.
Now, it does not stay long on the face. When worn alone, it might come down in 2 or 3 hours. With compact or loose powder, it might stay longer. I don’t know if it would stay that much in a hot and humid climate. I can easily see the foundation on dry tissues. I just use it for short trips outside home where I know I won’t be out for more than 3 hours.
But, I completely love this souffle and I have been using it since a few years now. Every time that the foundation gets over, I do not feel like throwing away the cute pot, but then, I have too 🙁
This foundation also brightens up the face a bit. I don’t believe that it is due to cucumber or potato, but something else that is working!
I would suggest this souffle to women who become conscious while wearing heavy foundations and yet want to have that “foundation effect.” This is it, find your match from the three shades and get one because it is only for Rs. 99 🙂
