About the Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation
It is a water-based foundation with SPF 8 for sun protection. This foundation spreads evenly all over the skin and perfectly covers any unevenness, dryness and patchiness. On the downside, the shade of this foundation suits Indian skin tones, and does not work well with fair skinned people.
Around 180 INR
The texture of this liquid foundation is almost a creamy, semi-fluid that tends to stick to the skin instead of dripping down. This allows it to be rubbed quite effectively into the skin to give the perfect natural tone for your skin. Due to its light breezy texture, it blends naturally according to the skin without giving it an over the edge effect. All in all, the foundation is perfect for everyday use.
This foundation comes in a translucent glass jar, with a purple lid. Shade number is mentioned on the bottom of the bottle. A spatula is attached inside the lid.
It is easily available at general cosmetic stores, at stores, and online.
Directions for Use
The foundation is very easy to blend it with fingertips or a makeup sponge or even a brush- simply apply a few dots on different areas of the face, and then blend it well.
Shade 1: For Fair Indian Complexion
Shade 2: For Fair to medium Complexion
Shade 4: For Medium Complexion
