Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation: Awesome, BUT....


It kinda looks like Magic 8 Ball, no? Okay, let's pretend it is. "Will the foundation inside make my skin flawless?"

*Shakes ball* [Answer at the end of the post]

What it is:
Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse is a feather light foundation with a mousse to powder finish. It claims to last upto 16 hours & has SPF 8.

Available in 2 shades: Ivory Fair & Beige Honey.

I got Ivory Fair , which pretty much suits my MAC NC 25 skin tone.




Finish ~ Matte
Coverage- Light to Heavy

When I first used this, I was like, "Oh wow. Wow. I am lovvving it" I liked it better than the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25. Hell, I liked it better than Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation as well

The airy mousse texture is extremely smooth & blends like a dream. The coverage can be built up from light to heavy, without it looking cakey. To sum it all up, it is my ideal foundation.



Then the fairy tale ended the next morning when a few pimples appeared. I'll just show you the ones on my chin....

Top healed, bottom healing. And yes, they will scar :@


Ingredients are not listed (Everytime! Why?), but I'm assuming this product has Dimethicone or Silicone, which my skin hates. No wonder it's so smooth!

[Magic 8 Ball answer:
"Don't count on it."]

If your skin doesn't react badly to silicone, then you might feel differently.

Price ~ Rs.550

  13. I have small bumps on my face after using the White Intense Skin Cover today. My face feels itchy even now. I never would have suspected what caused it if I had not read your post before.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
