September 2016, In association with Sabyasachi Lakhme launched few of its limited collection named ” Lakhme Absolute Illuminate Range” at Lakhme Fashion Week . This whole range consists of foundation, eyeshadow, eye liners , lipstick, highlighters and bronzer which give a promising silky dewy makeup look.I like the way all aimed at giving a perfect dewy look and instantly brightens the face.
The shows stopper kareena kapoor Khan looked stunning in that golden shimmery make Up. I’m sure you all might have seen Kareena’s strobing look in social media’s if not just have a look…
Lakhme is famous for its affordable make-up products and they launch often new products. And asap I saw its reviews and its price I decided to try this one. And why not… It’s My favorite brand…..Lakhme….!!!
Lakhme Illuminating foundation is priced at 750rps for 30ml, which is quite affordable for a decent foundation.
The package is very similar to Lakhme’s absoutw intense whitening foundation. It comes in a sturdy, hard plastic bottle with a silver dispense pump. It is spill proof and travel friendly.
Sadly this comes only in four shades Ivory glow, Natural Flare, Beige glimmer and Honey beam. Once again only limited shades and they don’t have shades for dark or deep skin tones. I bought the shade Beige glimmer which was a little bit lighter may be cause of the shimmers in it. And it made me look ashy.
This foundation is quite thick so one has to be really quick in blending action. As it may make you look patchy. This is very smooth, soft and light in weight. It doesn’t give that heavy madeup look. The smell of this foundation reminds me or Lakhme 9 to 5 matte flawless finish foundation. Its the same mild chocolaty fragrance which is not irritating.
This foundation gives a sheer coverage but the coverage is buildable as it doesn’t turns cakey. If you have pigmentation or any other marks, tyen for sure you need a good color corrector and concealer. The shimmers in this foundation are loosely packed and hence it wont give you that too much flashy look. It can also be mixed with any other foundation for a perfect dewy, shimmery look.
My Claims :
This foundation comes in a good travel handy package. Best thing it comes with a pump dispenser. Just one pump…taddaaa.. You are on with your dewy silky natural look.. “illuminating” look as Lakhme says. On the first day of use, it caused me breakout a little in my chin area but ya climatic changes are also another fact. It has a lot of sparkles which are loosely packed and it makes me a bit odd on layering up. So, yes ! I’m okay with sheer coverage… 😉😉😉😎
Its on affordable side and it does everything whay a normal drugstore foundation has to. It is perfect for normal to oily skin. It gives a very sheer coverage but coverage is buildable.
It stays for about 4 to 5 hours without primer. And it make me look ashy when looked from distance or in photo’s with flash.
The only flaw is limited shades… I think Lakhme should launch few shades for deep skin tones.
Conclusion is overall its a good foundation for function, party’s and wedding but I like to mix it withmy regular once coz I looooove dewy makeup loook…..😝😝😝😝😘😘😘😘😊
And definitely it’s in my repurchase list till I find a new foundation for dewy look…….😎😎😎
Bride’s to be… This for you…its must in your vanity as you will have a lot of functions line-up…. bridesmaid…. You can also get one for you…..😉 as you will be under spot light….😘😘😊😄
