I feel my dresser is crowded with Lakme Foundations these days. Despite their flaws, i keep coming back to them because they provide such a good color match for me. Or maybe its just nostalgia since these were the first ones i ever started using . Any how, so two of these are up for review today and i have some very different opinions on both of em! I like keeping good things for the end, so we shall follow that order…

Lakme Face Magic Souffle Foundation (On the left)

Lakme claims-Lightweight soufflĂ© makeup, perfect for everyday wear. Enriched with sunscreens and cucumber extracts.100% water based formula is lightweight so skin does not feel weighed down by extra layers.Souffle form allows for easy application to give skin a natural, flawless look”



 What i think about the Lakme Face Magic Souffle :

Pros:

  • Its moisturizing which is a good thing for me since i have dry skin.
  • Its a bargain at Rs 99! I think thats the only reason i even purchased it.

Cons:

  • Its ORANGE!. The colour makes me look like Snooki from jersey shore ! I trust lakme blindly in color matches for indian skin but this one is way off
  • Its minimal coverage. I am a low coverage girl but even for me theres nothing in it
  • It doesnt do anything a foundation should do- even out skintone or give a flawless look
  • Doesnt last – its the lakme syndrome

Final Verdict : 2.5/5 – Its the orangeness which really gets to me, they need to rework the colours.
Price: Rs99/- 
Shades: 3


Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation
Lakme Claims : “The Invisible Finish Foundation blends perfectly with your skin, Offers full coverage for a flawless invisible finish .Is water based, ultra light when applied”

What i think about the Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation
Pros:
  • Color match is bang on – it has just the right amount of yellow thats needed for me
  • It gives medium coverage which could be built up
  • It gives a nice healthy glow to the face
  • I wont say its moisturizing, but it doesnt dry out or look cakey either
  • Feels invisible and light on the skin and blends well

Cons:

  • Wears off quickly in the heat. Also sometmes it transfers onto the shirt collar which is so annoying. I really wish lakme would look into this because i love their foundations had it not been for these issues.


Final Verdict: 4/5 – I absolutely love this foundation,  yes it wears off in the heat but  It gives good enough coverage without being cakey, its light on the face and looks nice and glowy.
Price: Rs 180/-
Shades: 6
