Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matt Oil Free Foundation Review (4) Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matt Oil Free Foundation Review

Being a college going girl I need my makeup to look natural and last longer. I stick to bb creams for daily wear but for days when I want to look special I use a foundation and expect it to last through my college hours and stay matte on super oily skin. So when I read matte and oil free on this foundation I grabbed it quickly. Let’s see how well it worked for me.

Product Description: Discover the sheer delight of perfection with Chambor’s Sheer Delight Ultra Matt Foundation, it is time to bid oily and uneven skin goodbye. Here is a foundation that gives you the ‘no-makeup’ feeling. It comes with a matt finish that helps you stay shine free all day.

My Review

The foundation has a slightly thick consistency like a cream and has a very smooth texture which blends easily into my skin just with few patting motions, I use my fingers for application and it blends very quickly. It is very lightweight and sheer  as Chambor claims and it does not feel heavy at all. It looks very natural on  my skin and has a semi matte finish and sets on its own. As I have oily skin I top it up with a compact powder.

The coverage is on the sheer side, I have slight darkness under my eyes and few old acne scars which are not very visible now and it covers them well and evens out my skin tone. If you want heavy coverage then you will need to use a separate concealer. It has never caused any new breakouts on my skin. It stays matte on my skin for 3 hours even while I am out in the campus under the hot sun and after that I blot my face mainly t-zone to take away the shine. It is fairly long wearing and lasts for 8 hours easily without oxidizing or fading and with blotting 2 to 3 times in between, none of my bb creams ever last this long on me so I am very satisfied with this product.

The foundation comes in a sleek dark navy blue tube and has a screw up cap along with a cardboard box. I have carried this along with me many times and the packaging is very good for travelling.

The main thing I dislike about it is the very limited shade range, it is available only in three shades and I have the darkest shade ginger and has a lot of yellow undertones to suit my warm skin tone nicely. It does not have SPF so I have to layer a sunscreen before applying it during day time.

Pros:

  • The foundation comes in a sleek tube which can be carried around easily
  • Does not feel heavy on skin
  • Blends very easily with fingers
  • Has light coverage and evens out skin tone, looking natural
  • Did not break me out
  • Gives semi matte finish
  • Very long wearing even in summers

Cons:

  • Does not have SPF
  • Very limited shade range
  • May not work well for dry skin type

Rating: A

Price: Rs 745 for 30ml

Recommendation: Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matt Oil Free Foundation does everything it claims to in terms of looking very natural and giving a shine free look that holds up very well on my oily skin hence perfect for everyday wear.  It gives a sheer, everyday look that evens out the skintone and provides some coverage and blending it is so easy and quick. I would highly recommend it if you have oily skin.

I have this one too.. And I love it. Even though the shade I have is a bit darker for me. But the texture and staying power is just amazing :)

Yeah with such limited shade options, many will face such problems, but otherwise it is a boon for oily skinned gals :)
