Do I Recommend The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation?

Review: The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation

I had updated on snapchat (@samyukta_islm) last week that I suspected the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation to be breaking me out and hence I have been keeping a keen eye on the foundation since.

I wear foundation to work on a daily basis and I had been looking for a lightweight everyday kind of foundation as opposed to the Maybelline Fit Me that I usually wear. And hence when I heard of the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation I bought it and hoped against hope that it would work for me :P

Price of Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation

It costs INR 575/-

I am shade 02, Beige Vanilla in this foundation.

As the name suggests the foundation is supposed to be a mousse consistency and that is exactly what it is. Its so light and so fluffy to touch that sometimes I am not even sure if I have applied foundation. It literally feels like I am wearing nothing at all where base makeup is concerned.
I generally apply it with a flat foundation brush but if you please you could use your fingers too.
I would not suggest using a beauty blender/sponge because it is a mousse foundation and not liquid. A damp beauty sponge can tend to "dilute" the foundation further and render it almost useless.
I don't recommend using a stippling brush if you have considerable peach-fuzz (facial hair) because the stippling action kind of makes the facial hair stand out and since the foundation is very light, it doesn't help in settling the facial hair.

Fragrance wise it has an artificial floral smell that is not that annoying. It does linger on for a while but it shouldn't really be very bothersome. 

As is evident from the pictures the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation comes in a squeeze tube kind of packaging and a metallic Rose gold cap. The packaging is practical, travel friendly and convenient to use. The only thing I don't like is that you cannot tell the amount of product that is left in the tube.

As far as the finish of the foundation is concerned it is dewy, not too much but just the perfect amount. You will love it if you have normal to dry skin. Oily skin beauties can use powder over it while those with very dry skin would need to moisturise properly underneath. This foundation is literally something that can be made to work for everyone.

Lastly, the longevity of the foundation is awesome. It stays put on me for almost 12 hours and still looks great. I have already ordered for my second tube :)

Does it break me out?
It turns out that the foundation does not break me out :) It was something else that was breaking me out and I confused it with this foundation :/ My Bad!

Do I Recommend The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation?
I do, I do, I do :)

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
