I am in the shade 03-BEIGE CARAMEL. It is the darkest in the shade range and has yellow undertones to it.

It comes in a peach-pearl colored tube with a peach-gold metal screw cap and has detailings/instructions written in black. Just like the CC cream one it also has a tiny whole for the product to dispense. Although the tube thing is way more hygenic in terms of usage than the regular tub/pot ones, i guess there would be product wastage when it comes to the end.

Coming to the actual product, this foundation is truly weightless as it says. The texture is absolutely like a mousse- so soft and so velvety that it blends in like magic. It is super easy to blend just with our fingers. It blends in super effortlessly. As it blends it turns into powdery texture and gives a super matte finish. No need of any extra powder touchup for this foundation. It can be used just by itself.

This foundation has light-medium coverage but almost helps in covering marks to some extent. Can be used as a daily wear foundation. It doesn’t conceal any dark spots/blemishes/acne redness. Building up this product is not a good option as it shows up patchy. If you are blessed with already flawless skin with no imperfections, then this should be your thing. It is best for oily skin as it gives a primed up look, but if you have dry skin you have to wear a moisturizer underneath this foundation, otherwise it looks patchy.

The longevity of this foundation is also pretty good- it stayed for more than 5 hours on my oily skin. It did not crease or melt or got greasy on my skin even after the 5 hour duration. Upto 5 hours and more my skin looked absolutely fresh and matte. But after 5-6 hours the freshness on the face started fading off.

Here are the swatches and also a pic where i blended partially with my fingers. It turned into a powdery texture after blending.

Pro’s:- 

  1. Hygienic packaging
  2. Truly Weightless foundation-light weight formula
  3. Super velvety, soft texture
  4. Blends in easily
  5. Results in a matte finished look

Con’s:-

  1. Price- 575INR for just 29g of product
  2. Light-medium coverage
  3. Fewer shade colors- not everyone would find their match
  4. No ingredients listed

 

Overall the Lakme Weightless Mousse Foundation gets a big thumbs up from my side. I liked this foundation. I use this foundation just by itself- no need of powder to set it. I am impressed by the way it turned out also. Another good product from the Lakme family.

Hope you guys find this helpful. Please LIKE, SHARE and COMMENT. It means a lot to me. And Thank you for stopping here on my blog.
