Lakme Absolute Mattreal mousse Foundation Review, Photos and swatches



Lakme Absolute Mattreal foundation Review, Photos and Swatches


What the company claims?


This mousse to powder formula delivers a feather light finish giving you a smooth breathable skin while its weightless formulation hides pores, uneven skintone and fine lines to leave skin peachy soft all day long.
  •          Last upto 16 hours
  •     Feather light texture
  •     SPF 8

Comes in 3 shades
  •         Ivory fair (1)
  •     Golden medium (3) 
  •         Beige Honey (5)
       Price - 550 bucks 
      Here comes the premium cosmetic line from Lakme. It is everything that we bloggers were cribbing for Lakme to achieve. Long lasting products, Innovative packaging ( who wants to see the lip colors and foundation in that same old boring maroon packaging ? )
      When I first saw this range, the only thing that captivated my imagination was this foundation. Shiny color and innovative ball type packaging with 16 hours of wear. What was not to like ? I finally got my hands on it and Got the shade Golden medium which is light for my NC 42 skin tone.



      

The picture shows how beautifully it fits into the palm. Now on the performance
The consistency is air whipped. It blends with a bit difficulty , By that I mean thorough blending is required. It gives a beautiful matt finish but starts looking powdery if applied too much. I didn't find the coverage build able. If you try to build it, it starts looking cakey. It is a great daily wear foundation  since it even outs the skin , covers pore a bit and control oil for few hours. I think it will suit oily and combination skin more


Drawbacks - It makes skin look flakey if not applied after properly prepping skin. Moisturizer is must if you want the optimal finish from the foundation.
It doesn't last long. I see the effect till 4 hours before it starts fading :|



This is me wearing the foundation. see how it blurs out imperfection





Will I buy again ? No, I will use it till it lasts but it aint anything exceptional if you ignore the fancy packaging.

  1. Definitely sounds better than the Maybelline matte mousse foundation and good that Lakme's working on packaging. :)

  26. Hello Palak,
    May i please know if Lakme Daily Wear Souffle and Lakme Absolute Mousse are similar in any way?? I have already tried the Souffle and it didnt suit my skin at all. So wanted to know if the mousse is just the same thing in a different package before i shell out 500 bucks on it. Thank you :-)
