Hey everyone! hope you all had a wonderful March:) I can't believe that we have almost stepped into the fourth month of 2012,Goodness.. how time flies away!
almost a week back me and my sister was out for shopping I bought a couple of skin care items for summer and my sister was in need of a foundation,she got herself an essence mousse foundation.she gets some pigmentation and her skin gets oily during summer so she wanted a light coverage foundation to even out her complexion that controls shine and mattifies her skin...after checking out L'Oreal,Rimmel,and Artdeco we bought this one.
Packaging: The foundation comes in a glass jar with a plastic lid.it is light weight and will not take much space in your makeup pouch.you might also think that you are getting a jar full of foundation,it is only half full.this foundation not gonna last more than a month if used everyday.
Price & Availability:I bought this from naheed super market for Rs.590.

Coverage & Texture:This foundation is super light weight and it feels like as if you have nothing on face so its perfect for summer when you just want to have minimum products on face.The texture is very smooth and coverage is light.this foundation is in 01 sand.
My Thoughts:This is what my sister think about this foundation so its her opinion and mine as well because I used this foundation a couple of times just to check how it works..its not a perfect match for my skin,it is at-least two tones lighter.This foundation is very natural in a sense that non of the colors are orangy,yellowish and pinkish,its just very neutral.sadly they dont have colors for darker skins.it looks a little powdery when first alpplied but it sets well after 10 or 15 minutes but it doesn't mean you will have to wait to apply the rest of the makeup.
As I mentioned above this foundation is very smooth almost like a primer,it works very well without a primer and doesn't even need a brush,it works best with fingers.it completely mattifies my face and my sister's face without making it look flat and matte,it leaves a silky and smooth finish.
If you have acne dark spots like I have,it doesn't cover all the spots it just lightens them,you would need some concealer to conceal the spots.
If you are looking for a foundation that mattifies and gives a nice silky finish to your face,evens out our complexion and isn't high maintenance you'd love this.no primer and brush is required and you'll just need 30seconds.it is super long lasting as well.the T zone requires a little bit of retouching after 5 hours.
My sister is definitely going to repurchase this.I wish they had my color:(
