Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Review
Hi Ladies. Wish you all a great New Year ahead! Today I am going to review a foundation which is best suited for oily skin.
What the company claims:
Feather-light finish easily blends into the skin keeping it healthy, hides pores & evens out skin tones. The new SPF 8 formula protects the skin from sun damage, leaving it peachy-soft & naturally flawless for up to 16 hours.
- SPF 8
- Feather light texture
- Stays up to 16 hours
Price: Rs 700 for 25g
Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse comes in a good-looking gunmetal round pot packaging which is a total treat to eyes. I was half sold by packaging :O! The product is covered by an additional thin plastic plate. Hope not many people prefers to lay their hands in the tub to take the product out and with regular use the product settles down in the rim and groove of the packaging making it messy.
Available in three shades: Ivory Fair (Lightest), Beige Honey (Medium) & Golden Medium (Darkest). I was given the latter one. Unfortunately the shade range is not for duskier beauties! But the shades have enough yellow tones for warm Indian complexions
It has got a soft-silky and super light whipped mousse texture which blends like a fantasy. A few light strokes with the finger tips and the mousse melt into skin and it becomes your second skin. The texture has got a nice finishing which fills in pores. It feels light & so breathable.
It provides light-medium coverage and blurs out those pores, fine flaws exceptionally. It doesn’t provide heavy coverage but evens out the skin beautifully making it look flawless. The finish is matte with slight shiny touch to it. This is not moisturizing for dry skin and would definitely require a moisturizer underneath. It gives a nice refreshed and blooming skin. I managed to test these 8 hours. At 8th hour it showed considerable fading. I am still very much happy with the wear power despite of the tall 16 hours wear claim by the brand. Finally it has got this citrus fragrance which doesn’t bother me much but can be worrying for sensitive noses! It’s a striking base makeup with skin friendly texture (provided you are not allergic to silicones), natural looking light-medium coverage giving a flawless radiant skin.
- Stylish and good-looking packaging.
- Super light, silky soft texture.
