Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation Review

I have never used Lakme foundations before. I tried once when I was in college but back then there were not many suitable shades for Indian skin tones so I stopped using and never looked back. But this time when they launched 12 shades of this 9 to 5 mousse foundation I was intrigued by Lakme. Finally, I decided to buy this foundation.

How to Use

Step 1: Apply Lakme 9to5 Weightless Foundation to clean, moisturized skin.

Step 2 : Just take a small amount of product with the index finger and start applying it to the skin with your fingertips. Usually, you can just apply the mousse in four places: the forehead, nose, chin and cheekbones

Step 3: Blend into your skin starting from the center of the skin outwards, taking care to cover your face including your neck.

My Take on this product

My MAC shade is NC 42

My Lakme 9 to 5 weightless mousse foundation shade is Caramel Beige

This foundation comes in a very classy looking rose gold color package tube. The tube is opaque hence you cannot see the foundation inside until you take it out. The foundation tube dispenses just the right amount of the product. Travel-friendly packaging.

Lakme 9 to 5 weightless mousse foundation has a little flowery scent to it. I particularly do not like scented facial products however the smell does not linger long. To use this mousse foundation, you must prep your skin properly before applying because it gets into dry patches. This foundation feels so weightless as if you are not wearing makeup at all. I love the fact that it does not clog pores and does not accentuate pores, gives blur effect and makes skin flawless. This does feel flawless but it does not cover the blemishes as it has light coverage. The coverage is buildable to medium. Layering this foundation still makes weightless.

This foundation feels like BB cream and not really foundation. If you are looking for everyday casual wear to even your skin tone go for it.

I am happy that they have extended the shade range however, I couldn’t find the ingredient list on the packaging.
