Lotus Herbals Stick Foundation Review, Swatches

Lotus Natural Blend Swift Makeup (Stick Foundation) review

For many days I had been looking for a foundation that has the following characteristics:

1) It should not be liquid or mousse-I have them both 2) It should be light weight and non-comedogenic (not clogging pores) 3) Should not be cakey and finally 4) Should be very close to my skin tone. Surfing through stores , I came across the Lotus Natural Blend Stick foundation and found that it claims to satisfy my first two criteria :D. When I went to the store to actually buy it-I got confirmed on my third wish but got a little confused on the fourth. This was when the SA (for one of the few times in life) helped me out and suggested me a shade that I found to be suiting my skin to the T! Me Happy!!!!

Lotus Natural Blend Swift Makeup SPF 15: Price Rs 249 Shade: Natural Beige

Lotus Herbals Stick Foundation

First of all I got quite happy with the price-because I thought Okay! Even it doesnโ€™t suit me-its not actually going to hurt me much . ๐Ÿ™‚ย  One thing I donโ€™t like about Lotus Herbals is that their website does not give the shade details-so I had to go to the Lotus counter with a blank face and ask- โ€œShow me the stick foundation of my skin tone!!!! (Trust me-Its smarter to go to the store and mention the shade names- the SAs at once know this is a practiced customer ๐Ÿ˜€ )

This is what the Lotus Herbals Website says about the Lotus NaturalBlend Swift Makeup-
โ€œAll-in-one make-up that works like a foundation, a concealer & a compact, with sun protection. Its smooth application creates an even skin tone, conceals imperfections & blends easily for a matte effect, without caking or clogging pores.โ€

Description of the Product: The stick foundation is about an inch in diameter and comes in a twist up red container with a lid having a clear top. Frankly-I donโ€™t like the packaging โ€“it is not classy like the Lotus Natural Blend blushโ€™s-but off course thatโ€™s not an issue. The stick is about 1.5 inches in length and promises sufficient amount for its price.

My Take on the Product:

When the SA swatched it on the back of my palm, I was confused as it looked some pinkish beige in color that I thought would stand out on my face (pink makeup!!! Noooo). However, after swatching it on my jawline-I decided to go for it. Coming home-I did my full face with it and Voila! I knew I had my next HG foundation!! (after Revlon New Complexion Makeup-that is) This is what I felt after applying the Lotus Natural Blend foundation which says โ€œFour in One foundation- concealer-with a matte powder finish-yet moisturizingโ€ (That is what is written on the product container โ˜บ) :
1) It feels very light on skin
2) It is extremely easy to blend
3) It gives medium coverage

With this view-I wore it for a full day occasion and thereby could know about its pros and cons in yet further details.

Pros of Lotus Herbals NaturalBlend Swift Makeup

1) It didnโ€™t break me out or irritate the skin in any way
2) It blends effortlessly and evenly. Non sticky-no mess formula. Simply dab in dots or long streaks and blend outwards
3) Non cakey-this is โ€œPhotography safeโ€!!! It means your face wonโ€™t look like a 50 Watt CFL bulb in photos after using this foundation-guaranteed!!!!
4) The tone of the foundation has suited my skin tone to the T. I guess it would suit most of the Indian cool-wheatish tones. There are two other shades available-but their names are not listed on the website and I donโ€™t remember them . ๐Ÿ™
5) Stays for long. The foundation makes the look completely natural and doesnโ€™t fade/darken even after a whole summer-day wear
6) Claims to have SPF 15. Has a nice fragrance

Cons of Lotus Herbals NaturalBlend Swift Makeup SPF 15

1) No ingredient list is mentioned โ€“ neither on the product , nor on the website.
2) It is very creamy- and the finish comes out to be sheer rather than powdery matte on my normal to oily skin. I donโ€™t think this will be a good option for very oily skin. But for normal to dry skin โ€“this can be the โ€œOh so Rightโ€ foundation
3) My skin felt a bit oily after sometime of application-which I neutralized with buffing some compact
4) Coverage is medium.

I would rate this product: :-* :-* :-* :-*ย  and would purchase this even before it ends ๐Ÿ™‚

Thatโ€™s me wearing this foundation with Maybelline Whitestay UV Compact and some blush ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. looks lovey on ur skin! :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: ive been looking for a foundation for summers for so long.there is simply nothing for oily skin with pores which would minimise their appearence.
    so dissapointed!

    1. ohh!! :(( ๐Ÿ™ I guess you should try the revlon colorstay or new complexion makeup-also I used the Maybelline Matte Mousse foundation which gives a superb finish if used in the right shade..you just have to try some options and you will surely get the right one ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. No Rati, it is very light and the finish is sheer-totally weightless-and I just needed some occasional buffs of compact as I have an oily T zone :)) rest all :waytogo: :waytogo:

        1. Well you know-this stick worked great for the small acne marks and gave my skin a flawless finish-but I think it may not be a very good under eye concealer as it has medium coverage-still I would rate it highly as a basic foundation+concealer as it is non cakey and effortlessly blendable :)) :)) :inlove: :inlove:

          1. any ideas about the L’oreal foundation? i picked tht up recently. this foundation looks really nice on you Anuradha. flawless..

      2. Hey Noopur-I was awed to see that you make lovely chocolates..thats something really different and yummilicious ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ :yahoo: :yahoo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

        1. hey anuradha.,,.thnkx yar ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ O:) O:)
          n dis lotus stick looks interesting to me.. wil defntly try this :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:
          thnkx for d review :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

  4. o god looks lovely on your skin, and i want to try it. basically i want a product that can work as a concealer for under eye area. this seems to be good. how does this perform once set with powder. have you tried using this as a concealer..

    1. I would suggest using Maybelline Matte mousse as a foundation-cum-concealer-as it gives full coverage. As for this one -this works fine once set with powder- it hides the few acne spots I have very well-however the coverage is medium-so I think it wouldnt work that well as an under eye concealer :(( but surely u can give it a try :))

      1. maybelline matte mousse is a wonderful product. good option. as a concealer i first use the loreal comcealer and top that with the mousse and a powder to set. works well for me but i get tempted so easily so always ready to buy new stuff..:)

        1. same here!!!!! Like the Revlon New Complexion Make up suits me soooo much that honestly I dont need to try anything else-but still-the passion (read drooling) for new stuff never dies-but it feels good when at least I hit upon a useful product ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ :victory:

  5. anuradha mayebleine mouse is wat am sticking too and yes geting the damn shade right is very difficult with those but i still need sumthng more easy and natural!
    and small town not much products available.was thinking of getng avon gel foundation chotu tube

    1. even i’m looking for a v.good compact/loose powder for oily/combi skin….
      heard lotus botanical compact is gud….any idea?

      Anuradha, this looks just lovely on ur skin…
      and the maybelline uv that u r using, that too luks too god…

      me too wanted to buy that compact but got confused b/w the shades?
      cudnt decide whish shade to go for….
      is that fawn shade the closest one for ur skintone?

      1. No Ann-in fact the choice of shades in this Maybelline compact is a bit tricky- Fawn is one (or may be one and a half :D) shade darker than my tone and it gives a perfect natural finish without giving whitish casts. The other shade natural is very close to my skin tone but looks patchy and whitish!!!!! after a few blunders or so-I have recognized the correct product for me ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. tnx a lot anuradhaa :))
          i had the same problem…
          actually the SA had suggested that i shud go 4 the natural shade but when i tried, it looked whitish on me, n i didnt pick fawn thinking that it wud be dark….
          now that u’ve told me, i’ll definitely try fawn next time, thankyoooo :hugleft:

  6. Well my experience with Avon gel foundation was BAAD as I found it really patchy and hard t blend.. :(( You can use the Oriflame Air Soft powder-I heard it works great -but you know I once made a disaster with the Lakme rose powder and now stay away from them ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ I just use the Maybelline Whitestay UV Compact in Fawn-it is just so nice and absorbs all the oils without clogging pores :waytogo:

  7. Thanks Ankita ๐Ÿ™‚ This is really a good product for its price ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ :inlove: :inlove:

  8. Thanks Prachi, I found his to be just the right foundation that serves to conceal minor marks and spots efficiently-and the flawless finish lasts all day long!!! :)) :))

      1. heyy rati..me soo happy yaa.. did lodz of shoppin today .. me soo exited to shw ya all my stuff..will be sending u my HAUL post.. :jiggy2: :jiggy2: :jiggy2:

        ohh and jus for info – today is d last day for sale session in ALDO..d SA told me.. :-/

  9. hehehe-for me-I always notice the blushes/bronzer in pics ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Natasha I am wearing a Faces Cosmetics Lippy in the shade Jazzy Berry ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. ok, its pweeety :woot: :woot: :woot: from the matte or moisture rich range? tell tell, me buy tomorrow only :toothygrin:

      1. emm well-the Moisture rich range is the one you reviewed today right? Then I think its from the matte range-coz the container is not similar to the Moisture rich range-it is an all black container ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. :waytogo: nice review anu..me also have same stick in HONEY BEIGE # 710-n i absolutely adore it.. :yahoo: :yahoo:

    1. Thanks a looooooot for this review, am definitely going to buy this soon. U know Anuradha, I was planning to get a foundation for me , and I think this is the best I can have, :)) And after you told me about Modern museum store, I had gone there, I bought a Maybelline color sensational lipstick at Rs 284 after discount, amazing store, It also has colorbar USA and FACES cosmetics counter :yahoo: :yahoo: :thanks:

      1. Another question I wanted to ask you?? which one would be a better blush dear, colorbar blush/ Lakme cheek artist or any other under Rs 400?? Please do reply.

        1. OK..Replying you one by one:
          First of all Thaaankuuuuuuuuuuuuuu :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :puchhi:
          Secondly Hawwww I missed the Discount at MM!!! Its an awwsum store aint it?? one stop shop for all makeup needs ๐Ÿ™‚
          Thirdly I am afraid-I am yet to try either a colorbar blush or the lakme cheek artist-I love the maybelline expert wear blush, the Lakme Pure Rouge Blush and also the Lotus Natural Blend Blush :)) :)) All these are priced below 300 bucks . But you can surely try Colorbar blushes-they are highly acclaimed :)) :))

  11. anuradha..this is so flawlesss and absolutely value for money…once my MAc and TBS get over …….will try this……on second thoughts will buy it in a while;P ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. I say you can safely go for this one-I find it a total value for money product ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ :waytogo: :waytogo:

  13. ok thanks every one of you, for now i am going to use the maybelline mousse, it is non oily, so it is even nicer for my oily skin. if any one finds a concealer for oily skin, especially a concealer for dark under eye circles, do let me know.

    i love the maybelline mousse’s texture, its really like butter on skin.

  14. Wow, so wonderful you look. Even I have started using it and I am completely satisfied. I bought it from a friend who wasnt satisfied with the shade luckily matched my tone. Even i am planning to go the store and look for more shades before buying the next one. Keep penning ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. M having a very fair complexion….. Will it work on my skin ??evn i hav a vry oily skin but it looks realy working on evrrybody’s skin and lotus herbals has always presented products value for miney ..but having a very fair compleion will it actually work on my face ?? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  16. I bought this foundation in shade 703 which matched my skin tone. But after application it gives a white cast on the skin and doesn’t give proper coverage too. I applied it on my dark circles and looked weird. Didnt like it much
