Offlate I have stocked up quite a few foundations, compacts and tinted moisturizers as I felt that a correct makeup base is essential. I have reviewed Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation, Lakme CC Cream and Lakme Perfect Radiance Compact earlier and today I will be letting you know a bit more about Lakme Nine to Five Flawless Makeup Foundation. The shade I am reviewing is called Pearl and that goes well with naturally fair skin tones. This range has three more shades called Marble, Coral and Shell. These 3 shades are suitable for wheatish to dusky skin tones.

Directions For Use:

This foundation is best applied by putting multiple dots on your face and then using a slightly damp makeup sponge to merge the dots and get a seamless finish.

My Experience With Lakme Nine to Five Flawless Makeup Foundation:

It comes in a card board box. Inside the box there is a cylindrical glass bottle. The bottle has a regular cap that closes well. There is a pump dispenser attached to the glass bottle that makes this foundation very hygienic to use. However, being made of glass, I would not call it travel friendly. The consistency of the foundation is medium. It is neither runny nor viscous. Fragrance is citrus like and cosmetic. I usually need two spurts from the pump for my entire face and an additional one for my neck.

This foundation spreads evenly on my skin and gives medium to good coverage. It feels very light on my skin as if I am not wearing any makeup. I have a combination skin and so my cheek and temple area are a bit dry. I do feel the need of a mixing this foundation with a little moisturizer as it is not moisturizing enough. Oily skin people can skip the moisturizer though. This foundation gives a matte finish. Its lasting power is 3 hours on me which is pretty good. It needs to be set with a compact of similar shade to improve the staying power. It stays matte for a long time that way. It is pretty good for office going people as you do not need any touch ups when you use this. I have not experienced any breakouts or allergies with this. From my side, Lakme 9 to 5 Flawless Makeup gets a thumbs up.

Pros Of Lakme Nine to Five Flawless Makeup Foundation:
  • Different shades available for different skin tones
  • Hygienic to use due to the dispenser
  • Feels non sticky and light on skin
  • Gives matte finish
  • Medium to good coverage
  • No touch-ups required
  • Does not cause any breakouts

Cons Of Lakme Nine to Five Flawless Makeup Foundation:
  • Expensive
  • Not moisturizing enough

Final Note:

All in all, this is definitely a good pick. Though it is bit costly, it is worth the price. It has a minor flaw of not being creamy enough but that can be taken care of by mixing a few drops of lotion while putting this on.
