My Word on Lotus Herbals NATURALBLEND My Perfect Tint Foundation:
Packaging: Now, this is interesting as the packaging consists of 2 separate compartments with separate flip top lids. Lotus has provided with two totally different shades of the foundation that needs to be blended together to get your perfect shade of tinted foundation. One shade is totally white while the other is quite a dark shade of the foundation. Mix them to make your own perfect tint foundation. :smirk:
Texture and Finishing:
I find the texture of the white part thicker than the darker foundation, but after mixing the two the consistency is like any liquid foundation that is easy to blend and it gets completely absorbed into the skin giving a matte yet soft feel to the skin. It’s quite light weight and gives a medium coverage to the skin. :yes:
Fragrance: It has a noticeable scent associated with it, which is kind of flowery and fruity, but a bit chemical like to me and I do not like it much. :-/
Shade: This is the trickiest part here. As mentioned, you need to mix the two shades to create your own skin tone matching shade, which is not an easy task or better to say that you need to run a series of trials to actually get to the nearest identical skin tone. :stars:
Swatches of the darker and white shades.
As one shade is quite darker than my skin tone, so I end up using a lot of white part of this foundation mixed with a very little quantity of the other shade to reach to quite a matching tinted shade. So, I am quite sure that I would finish up the lighter shade much faster than the other. Then, what would I do with the other part later. :struggle: and getting the perfect match is not a one-time job, but you need to mix and try it several times on your skin to reach to a satisfactory result and who has the time to do all that? :pan:
L- After blending the two shades and R- matte finishing after completely getting absorbed.
But it does a decent job by providing a matte medium coverage to the skin and controls oil too from your T-zone for quite a long time. I used it in summers outside and never got to struggle with wiping any sweat from my face. So, oily skinned people can surely give it a try. I find it better to be called as a concealer than a tinted foundation. It does that work nicely and as you can mix up to create a shade to be used as a concealer. Staying power is good and can be increased by using a nice compact/powder on top. :haanji:
Pros of the Lotus Herbals NATURALBLEND My Perfect Tint Foundation:
• Gives a matte medium coverage.
• Helps to control oil on the face for long.
• Can be used as a concealer too if used in proper quantity.
• Lightweight and easy to blend.
• Has SPF-15 for some added sun protection.
• Nice staying power for a tinted foundation.
• Will easily suit all skin types.
• A herbal product. No mention of any chemical in the short ingredient list provided.
Cons of the Lotus Herbals NATURALBLEND My Perfect Tint Foundation:
• Getting your exact skin tone matching shade is really an issue.
• Peculiar and noticeable smell.
• If you are on the fairer side, then you would definitely end up using the white part of the foundation much quickly than the darker shade.
• Mixing and matching thing is really time consuming, so you cannot use it in a hurry.
• Packaging looks cheap and also not consumer friendly.
Messy and cheap packaging.
I would personally rate it at 2.75/5 as I do not like the unique fact of this blending concept suitable, since these days foundations are coming in a variety of shades that easily matches the skin tone.
A “No” for me. Anyone who finds it hard to get a true match to their Indian skin tone in a foundation can surely give this a try. Even very oily skinned people can try this as a base for their usual makeup because of its good oil-controlling capability.
