RATING :- 8 OUT OF 10
This Lakme foundation has been lying in the drawer for years. Its all exhausted now and i just kept it thinking i would review it someday. And that someday is today. 4-5 years back this was my holy grail. Be it for college or just shopping, i would just apply the Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation all over my face and neck, and that was all about my foundation routine. With passage of time, i got many acne scars, so this foundation is no longer reliable for me. But yes i repurchased this foundation like crazy back on those days.
What Lakme claims about Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation? : This oil-free water resistant foundation with Vitamin E and Silicones, soothes and moisturizes with superior coverage. Easy to blend and feather like finish pampers the skin non-stop.
Ingredients : Aqua, Cetearyl Octanoate and approved colors.
A very much budget friendly foundation, Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation costs INR 125 for a tiny bottle of 27 ml. The packaging is basic but neat, just a glass bottle with brown lid. It glides on smoothly on the skin, super easy to blend, however gives a dewy look. Oily skinned girls like me are not a fan of dewy looks. What i used to do is to use a loose powder all over the foundation in order to get a matte look. The foundation is not waterproof hence you should not wear it if you sweat a lot or if its monsoon.
Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation smells good. Its available in 4 shades, Coral for dusky complexion, Shell for medium to dark skin, Marble for medium complexion and Pearl for fair complexion. I always used Marble and that suited me. The foundation is lightweight, and offers upto medium coverage if you build it up. Wont be able to hide any spots or blemishes though. And it gets messy while trying to take out the foundation from the bottle, either you have to dip your fingers in the bottle thats really not recommended! Or you have to put some foundation onto your palm, and i always ended up getting more than i required while trying to pour the liquidy foundation out of the bottle.
As i have mentioned in the very first para, i really like this Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation and this is one of the best Lakme foundation after the Lakme Face Magic Souffle (read review here). I think the expensive range of foundations from Lakme brand are not of equal quality as this cheaper range is.
