IImage SOurce:


Prior to applying this oil-based foundation, I prepped my skin with an exfoliating scrub, light face cream, and concealer. Then, pour a dollop of this foundation on the face and used a makeup sponge to apply the foundation all over the face.

The foundation got easily blended into the skin without making it feel heavy or greasy. As this foundation comes with a sun protection factor (SPF) 45, I did not have to lather up on sunscreen after applying the makeup.

I used the honeydew shade as it best suited for my skin complexion. It provided full coverage and made my skin’s complexion appear bright and clear. It also brought a radiant glow to my skin. Having used many oil-based foundations in the past, it was quite refreshing to use the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation as it provided optimum coverage, camouflaged the dark spots and brightened up the skin tone without making my skin feel stuffy. The foundation lasted for a few hours.

To my surprise, this foundation did not cause dry patches on my skin which often happens with other foundations as my skin is quite dry. Instead, even after a few hours, it made my skin look moisturized, well-nourished, soft, and bright. At the end of the day, when I started cleaning my face, I was pleasantly surprised at the foundation came off quite easily. Even after removing the foundation, my skin felt soft and supple.

I would recommend this foundation to women with dry or combination skin type who want a multi-purpose and time-saving makeup product. This oil-based foundation works as a face oil, sunblock, and foundation. It is perfect for women who are always pressed for time as it is easy to carry and apply.

Cons of Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation:

Currently, 15 ml of Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation with SPF 45 is available for Rs. 750. I believe the rate is quite high given the fact that 15 ml can get over within a few days. Secondly, when compared to other foundations in the stores, this one comes in just a few shades. Lastly, this foundation is best-suited for dry or combination skin type. If someone with oily skin uses this foundation, then she may notice greasiness on her skin after application.
