Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 Review

Rating – Negative Rating

I got this foundation months back, and this was lying at a dark corner in my wardrobe, until day before yesterday, when I decided to go for this foundation once more, as I went for shopping. And what I met with was disspointment. I am really aghast and have promised myself not to buy any other Lakme foundations going by the other beauty bloggers’ recommendation. The product is Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25. And I really cannot understand why is the product so overrated by the Indian makeup and beauty bloggers?

What Lakme claims about the Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 : This ultra light, oil-free, water based formula delivers naturally fair, breathable skin. Its weightless formulation hides pores, fine lines and uneven skin tone to leave skin peachy soft all through the day. It lasts up to 16 hours without fading and has Vitamin B3 and sun protection of SPF 25.

Lets face it, this foundation is a big time sucker! The foundation is supposed to be matte, but obviously if one is oily skinned like me, it turns into greasy and patchy within 10 minutes of application. You can get only 3 shades of the foundation – 01 Ivory Fair, 03 Golden Medium and 05 Beige Honey. The Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 is priced at INR Rs 595, a big price tag for such a poor product! For me, the Lakme Perfecting Foundation which is priced at INR Rs 99 is superior to this bottle of misery!

Lakme foundations are never really good, while other brands’ foundation are better in quality at the same price. However, this particular foundation Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 casts a whitish cast on the face, which is very much prominent in flash lights, even in a well-lit place or room. Whenever I tried to blend it, it forms white patches, my complexion looks clearly discolored. The foundation kind of settles down in the lines and wrinkles, making the imperfections more prominent. However, if you are going to a dark place which has dim lights or almost no lights, then the foundation will be okay for you.

Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 has a nice fragrance - citrusy. I picked up the 03 shade. But it delivers a low coverage, instead of covering up the bit of zit zats on the skin, it accentuates those areas, I feel. This time it was my fourth trial with the Lakme foundation, I make sure that I have used at least 3 to 4 times any product before reviewing it. Well, if you are going to buy this particular foundation from Lakme, I would suggest turn on your left or right or back, and go to someother counter, but Holy Mary, NO not this!
