Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation retails in a pump tube with steel-grey color packaging.
The packaging is sturdy. It is light weight and travel friendly. The foundation has a citrus fragrance and it is not over the top but mild.
595 for 15 ml
The texture of the foundation is light and creamy. It spreads and blends quite easily. I have a combination skin and this foundation appears quite dry on me without a moisturizer underneath, so I highly recommend wearing a good moisturizer. Dry and combination skin people should moisturize their skin. I am sure oil skinned beauties will love this foundation. I have tried applying with brush and fingers. It works well and blends into the skin.
The foundation provides medium to full coverage. The finish is very natural and matte which I like a lot. I bought the shade 03 which is for medium skin tones, I would not say it is my perfect match but the foundation in 5 minutes of application settles down and matches me well. The foundation doesn’t appear heavy or cakey even when I go for a full coverage look, it looks still natural on my medium warm skin tone (I am nc 42 – 43 in mac).
It is long wearing type of foundation and stays for about 7 hours on me.
Final words: It did work well for me, it works as a full coverage and a long wearing foundation. A great pick for oily skinned girls and dry or combination skin can also pull it off easily with a good moisturizer. The only drawback to this product is the shade range, there are only 3 shades available and everyone can’t really find their exact match. The shade 3 will suit medium skin tones. Definitely a good foundation and would love to repurchase it again.
