Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation Review (Shade- Ivory Cream)

Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation Review

In a Country where Lakme totally reigns the Makeup Industry , it is always exciting to see new products being Launched by them very often now . I was delighted to see this new Argan Oil Collection by Lakme which screamed Luxe . So, the Curious and Excited me ended up Ordering The Argan Oil Serum Foundation online itself instead of going out and checking the shade range . I have been using the foundation for a while now , so sharing my thoughts on the same in my review today.

Contains SPF 45 which is suitable for everyday wear.

Price : Rs.750 for 15 ML

My Experience with Lakme Absolute Argain oil Serum foundation: 

Lakme has Launched the Foundation in 6 shades namely , Ivory Cream , Rose Silk , Silk Golden , Honey Dew , Natural Almond , Natural Light . I got this in the shade Ivory cream which is a fairly good match for my skin tone ( NW25 in MAC )

Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation comes in a glossy , black cardboard box which carries details like product description, expiry date , price except the ingredients list . The foundation bottle has an attractive golden packaging made of hard plastic which mimics glass . It has a dropper cap , which helps in dispensing the product . To my surprise , there was no mention of the ingredients list even on the foundation bottle . Overall , I find the packaging nice and travel Friendly .

The first thing I liked about this Lakme Argan Oil Serum Foundation is the amazing formula . It actually does have serum like consistency which is fluid-y , thin , lightweight and runny . The formula is an absolute delight to work with and requires minimal effort to blend into the skin . I have mostly used my fingers or flat foundation brush to apply it . The foundation gives about medium coverage which I like . It manages to cover minor imperfections and spots on my skin while for the darker ones I do need spot corrector/concealer . I tried using a sponge to blend this and that resulted in lighter/ sheer coverage . Lakme serum foundation has a decent staying power of about 3-4 hours .

Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation gives a nice satiny finish to my Oily-Combination Skin . I would not call it a proper glow enhancing or dewy finish foundation but it also does not sit flat matte on my skin . Also , I like that it feels comfortable and lightweight on my skin . It has the same familiar sweet+citrusy fragrance which is typical of Lakme base products . I am really not very fond of this particular fragrance and I hope Lakme works upon this and starts making fragrance free products in future .

This Argan Oil Serum Foundation contains SPF 45 which makes it a good option for daytime wear , when you are out in the Sun . However , the SPF does make it unsuitable for flash photography . I would personally avoid wearing this foundation for formal events or parties , since the SPF lends a slight whitish cast to the skin , which looks non appealing in pictures/photographs .

Now , There are few points which I did not like about this foundation. Like, it tends to settle in lines around my nose and under my eyes . I have also noticed it does transfer on my phone and tissues . I have a few dry patches on my nose , sides of my cheeks and this clings on to them and makes the patches look prominent . To overcome these issues , I would suggest setting this with a setting / translucent powder .

Overall , I really like this Lakme Argan Oil Serum Foundation and it has easily become my most preferred day wear foundation . Some of you might find the 15 ML quantity a bit disappointing or less value for money , but I would only appreciate it . I don’t remember the last time I finished up a foundation bottle and that certainly leads to wastage . I would consider it a Good initiative by Lakme to introduce 15 ML /smaller sized packaging .

My Recommendation: Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation is a nice foundation with amazing , light weight formula . It is easy to blend and gives a smooth , satiny finish to the skin . This would work for all skin types in my opinion but if you have dry skin then you would certainly need a moisturiser underneath this . For my oily-Combination Skin , I just use this over a primer and I am good to go . It has easily become my favourite day wear foundation and I would certainly recommend it .
