Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation Review – Rose Ivory 01

Hey everyone, today I’m reviewing the newly launched Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation. It is a new addition to Lakme’s 9 to 5 makeup range and is available in 4 shades – Beige Caramel, Beige Vannile, Rose Honey and Rose Ivory.

Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation Review Packaging: Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation comes in a peach color plastic tube with a silver screw cap. It has a very tiny hole that dispenses only a small amount of the product to prevent wastage. The tube is very sturdy, convenient to use and can easily be carried in a purse. The shade name is given on the outer carton and also on the back side of the tube.

Texture & Fragrance: Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation has a very light, airy texture that spreads effortlessly on the skin. It has an artificial makeup fragrance which is not very strong, though.

Price & Availability: The price of the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation is Rs.575 for 29g. It is easily available at Lakme counters and online shopping sites like Amazon.in and Nykaa.com.

Efficacy: Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation is available in 4 shades and I choose the shade Rose Ivory 01 which is a close match to my fair skin tone. After priming my face, I dot it all over my face & neck using my fingertips. It has a silky smooth texture that blends effortlessly and gives a matte finish to my face. It evens out minor imperfections and leaves you with a natural looking fresh face. It controls oil and shine from my t-zone and gives me a fresh non-drying matte finish. It feels very light on the skin and stays put on me for good 5-6 hours with minor fading.

It gives a sheer coverage and is not able to hide dark circles, acne spots or blemishes effectively, (for that you need to use a concealer separately). Even Lakme CC cream gives better coverage than this new mousse foundation. I’ve a combination skin that becomes a little dry during the winters so, I need to moisturize my face before applying it. But I think it’ll work nicely for my skin during the summers. It gives very light coverage with a single layer but you can build a 2nd layer for a little more coverage. But make sure to not go over board as the 3rd layer will give your skin an ashy or powdery finish.
