I am just about done with my second tube of the Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation, so thought it was about time i gave it a little mention on my blog. This (along with Body shop moisture foundation which i love btw ) has been my go to summer foundation, and iv pretty much been wearing it every single day to work and im sure it feels neglected that i use it so much yet give it so little attention on the blogosphere. So here goes..

What Lakme claims:  “A lightweight foundation that glides on effortlessly like sheer silk. Just the right amount of coverage for everyday use, for skin that looks naturally flawless.”

What I Like about Lakme Silk Naturelle Foundation

  • The Texture: I like my foundations to be thin and moisturizer consistency and that is exactly what this is. It is not thick at all, and when you wear it on your face you kind of forget that you have anything on. It really is more of a tinted moisturizer i feel because its so weightless its a dream to apply
  • The Colour : Im amazed at how Lakme gets colours for indian skin right even with just 3 shades while MAC doesnt always do it with 30! I am a medium shade in this which is “Marble” and the colour matches me to a T. I dont even bother about buffing it out or lines showing because its such a close match. It also has a distinct yellow undertone which works well for my skin.
  • The Coverage: I am a low coverage girl and this gives a sheer to medium coverage which can be built up. So for someone like me, who doesnt want very heavy coverage but just a product that evens out my skin tone, this is the perfect everyday foundation
  • The Finish- I like that it gives a nice subtle healthy glow to the face, it blends seamlessly into your skin and you dont feel cakey or heavy AT ALL. That is why i was more than happy to slather this all over the face in the summer. Its also not drying so brownie points in moisture department.
Love the consistency

What I Dont Like about Lakme Silk Naturelle Foundation
  • Its a classic Lakme problem- the foundations dont last and this one is no different. I work everyday in an airconditioned environment so im good to go with this but for someone who is going to be facing a scorching indian sun, not recommended.
  • Of late, as the weather has gotten cooler my skin is becoming flaky, iv noticed that its not really helping the flakiness. 
  • Yhis is the foundation equivalent of lays  chips.. Yknow how Lay’s packet of chips have  air in half of  the bag and chips in the other half. Basically less product? This is it 

Will i repurchase Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation? : Yes, in the summer months when i  want the lightest foundation possible without looking cakey . Its so easy to apply -before office when you have just about 5 minutes to get ready. Not in winter because its not helping flakiness

Final verdict:  3.75/5 If you want sheer to medium coverage, and want a light everyday  foundation you will be happy with this one. Treat it like a tinted moisturizer, and no dont go frolicking around in the sun with this.
