I was at a beauty supply store when I spotted this Streetwear Color Rich Perfection Foundation and its packaging really caught my eye. I don’t use any foundation on day to day basis. Actually, I don’t find the need to apply concealers or foundations on my skin, yet. I prefer BB creams and tinted moisturisers, but only on special occasions. So, when I told my mom I wanted to try it, she knew it was just for the packaging (mothers!). The shade ‘Neutral’ suited my skin tone best and hence, I picked it up.
INR 170 for 30 ml.
My Experience with Streetwear Color Rich Perfection Foundation:
The Streetwear Color Rich Perfection Foundation is available in two shades: Neutral and Beige. Now, both the shades are for dark skin tones which is the best part about this foundation as not many foundations are available for darker skintones, at least in India.
There is no product description on the packaging. The glass bottle has Streetwear’s winking girl printed on it, as usual. All the details are mentioned on the plastic cover, but that needs to be ripped off and discarded in order to open the bottle. The name of the product is mentioned on the bottle, and has a white sticker plastered on it that has barcode, product name and shade name.
At the store, it blended pretty well and the tone matched my skintone perfectly. But, when I applied it and clicked photographs with the flash on, it left a whitish finish and I absolutely hate this about it. This is also the reason why I personally don’t apply any foundation.
I need to obviously apply a powder over it because I have an oily-combination skin and this is an oil based foundation. I know, I should have known this before I purchased it, but the staff at the store I went to, was too lame to help me out.
It stays on for about 3-4 hours, at the most. So, I plan on using this only when I am attending a wedding or I might just not use it at all. I am not sure about it, yet. And, it has a medium to buildable coverage, which depends on your personal liking.
For INR 170, this is a very affordable and nice foundation for girls who have just started experimenting with foundations or makeup. The lady at the store did ask me to try some high end foundations for a better shade and coverage, but I said I will come later. But, I won’t. I would much rather juts head towards MAC.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Streetwear Color Rich Perfection Foundation?
Maybe not, because my skin tends to get very oily when I am out in this sun and I don’t really know how this foundation would behave at that time. But, I would definitely recommend this to girls who have just stepped into the makeup and beauty world.
