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!

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…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
