Best Full Coverage Face Foundations in India

Today I am going to give out the list of my most favorite foundations that are available in India. These are the best ones that I found in the Indian market do share your favorites too in the comments section.

  1. Revlon Photoready Make up Foundation:

3-1  The Photoready foundation creates a dewy finish and makes the skin look glowy and supple. The foundation gets absorbed so soon that it looks like an extension of your own skin and has a long lasting stay. This is the perfect foundation for the weddings or party season as it gives that very fresh glowy party look. The best thing is that you don’t even need a concealer to hide your patches or zits. Since it comes with enough SPF you wont need a dab of sunscreen either. The packaging has a pump like most other foundations available.

Price: INR 850-1000.

  1. Clinique Super Balanced Makeup Foundation:

3-2

This clinique foundation is the best for women with combination or oily skin. It totally understands your skin, if you know what I mean. It gives complete coverage and you would not need any other product like a primer or a concealer. Depending on the oil content of your skin I recommend you may use a basic moisturizer if you need to. It does not break out or create any zits even on the most sensitive skin. It lasts long hours and only a very little quantity is used. It is the best product if you are looking for a more matte finish.

Price :  INR2500 approx

  1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation:

3-3

You all know how much I adore Estee Lauder products and this one is no different. This is one of the best full coverage foundations in the market and I am saying that out of experience. It settles so easily on the skin that you won’t even need a pressed powder over it. The only drawback is that it does not have enough SPF but it is good enough to go for most of your outings. It rests extremely easily on the skin providing a very long stay.

Price: INR 2790

  1. Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25:

3-4

The package comes in an attractive pump design, since it gets very easy to use, it becomes more travel friendly. It provides very good coverage which is very long lasting. You may need to create a moisturizer or a primer base to make your face more supple or you may just stick to a body oil like me. It is one of the cheapest foundations in my favorites.

Price – INR 630

Oh I so love this foundation. It is m favorite in this range. It gives you complete coverage and you do not need any base at all. You would rarely need a concealer and once you blend it you are just good to go. It will easily last for four hours on your face and gives a glowy matte finish.

Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation

Very recently Shraddha Kapoor did some rope dance to launch Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation, the new product by Lakme. The event took place in a hotel in Mumbai where Shraddha Kapoor who is the brand ambassador for Lakme, performed a rope dance on the middle of the road. This was one of the kind launch of any beauty product in India. The idea was to feel ‘weightless’ and talk about the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation.

Quite impressed by the campaign and the ‘weightless’ feel I decided to try on this new Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation. I got a tube for Rs 575.

Packaging

It comes in a small cardboard package like other lakme products. It looks very similar to the Lakme CC cream in shape and size. The tube is easy to store and travel friendly. Since the tube is soft plastic you can always choose the amount of the product that you need to apply.

Texture

The texture of this Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation is amazingly smooth. It will almost glide on your skin as you want it. It gives you very light coverage for a foundation. Most of the foundations give you enough coverage to hide all your marks and blemishes but this one only makes your skin lighter. You will definitely need a concealer with this one. But this is one product that you can use daily like a moisturizer if you like the natural look of your skin. It stays for about 3 hours on my face and the best thing is its weightless quality. As the product promises you do feel that it is weightless and there is absolutely nothing on your skin.

Procedure

Step 1: Apply Lakme 9to5 Weightless Foundation to clean, moisturized skin.
Step 2 : Just take a small amount of product with the index finger and start applying it to the skin with your fingertips. Usually, you can just apply the mousse in four places: the forehead, nose, chin and cheekbones.
Step 3: Blend into your skin starting from the centre of the skin outwards, taking care to cover your face including your neck.

Availability

It is easily available in four shades in the market –

  1. Rose Honey
  2. Rose Ivory
  3. Beige Vannile
  4. Beige Caramel

Pros

  • weightless
  • easily available
  • works well for fair skin tones

Cons

  • does not stay very long
