Heya every one! How have you been? So today I will be reviewing a foundation for you all which is from the brand Lakme.

I have already reviewed a few products from this brand before – lakme absolute cream compact and the Lakme matte lipsticks. Today I will be doing the Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation Review, Swatches.

In Detail Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation Review, Swatches in shade 001 Ivory fair
The Lakme absolute mattreal mousse foundation comes in a cardboard box. When you open it there is a beautiful spherical jar inside. The packaging is absolutely stunning. It’s not the regular foundation packaging but very different. It is very appealing in this round ball like shape with a sliver lid on top of it. However the lack of pump dispenser makes it a little unhygienic as everything you want to apply this foundation you have to dip your fingers in it. But the looks of the spherical packaging wins over everything. 😛
The lakme absolute mattereal mouse foundation comes in six different shades.
Ivory fair and Rose Fair – which is suitable for fair to wheatish skin tones.
Golden Medium and Golden Honey – for medium skin tones.
Beige Honey and Almond Honey – which is for beauties with dusky skin tone.
I wish there were more shades launched in this range.
So coming on to the review of the lakme absolute mattereal mousse foundation in shade 001 which is fair Ivory. This particular shade is suitable for beauties with wheatish to fair skin tone. Now I am between medium to dusky skin tone and I was matched the shade 002 which is rose fair. But I like to apply foundation that is one shade lighter than my skin tone as I have combination to oily skin and foundations tend to oxidise on my skin. Hence, I decided to pick shade 001 which is ivory fair. The shade looks very light when you swatch it but when blended it looks perfectly fine.
The mousse consistency of the foundation looks like whipped cream, hence It’s very smooth in terms of texture. It blends very easily and smoothly and almost feels like velvety butter. As a result, am totally sold out with the foundation in terms of its texture. (love, love). The foundation has silicon in it that’s the reason it blends out so smoothly and easily. I am glad that I picked this shade as this shade tends to oxidise a bit after an hour or so. Therefore, it’s a perfect match for me.
One can skip primer because this foundation already has silicon present in it. That’s the reason why it blends out so easily and stays for a long time. This foundation offers sheer to medium coverage. You can’t build the coverage with this, or else it ends up looking caky on the skin. This foundation does not cover any marks or blemishes on the skin. Hence, for that you may need a separate concealer. I feel this foundation is good for everyday use as it is feels light on the skin and at the same time stays for a good amount of the time. It also controls skin oils really very well.
This foundation will work for beauties with all different skin types be it a normal, oily or combination skin. This foundation stays on my skin for a good 7-8 hours maximum and then it starts fading from the place where I generally get oily that’s my t-zone area. Touching up with a loose powder or compact increases the wear time.
