Lakme is one cosmetic brand that is found in every Indian girl’s vanity kit for the reason that it combines beauty with affordability without compromising on the quality. Lakme is out with a new product called Lakme 9 to 5 primer + matte powder foundation review.
Lakme recently launched Primer + Matte Powder Foundation in their 9 to 5 range. It comes in a cute rose gold cardboard packaging. It is Lakme 9 to 5’s first Powder Foundation is a multitasking primer, foundation and powder in one that gives you even coverage with a matte finish. Primer conceals fine lines, foundation blends in effortlessly and powder gives a comfortable long-lasting matte finish.
The matte foundation is packaged in a reflective rose gold plastic compact packaging. Though the packaging is very pretty I am not sure how sturdy it is. The comes with mirror attached to it and a sponge puff for application. It is prefect for those summer days when you do not want to put too much makeup as it works as both primer and foundation. It is a perfect companion while travelling in case you need touch up for your makeup.
Shades in picture (from L to R) : Ivory Cream (lightest), Silky Golden, Honey Dew
Coverage : Lakme 9 to 5 primer + matte powder foundation gives a medium coverage and needs touch up after 4-5 hours thus it does not stay from 9 to 5 as claimed.
Texture : The texture is matte as claimed, it does not look cakey but I did find the formula a little powdery on my face which did not look uniform.
Price : INR 600 for 9 grams
It has a shelf life of 30 months.
My verdict : I would definitely recommend this product for summers if you want a super easy one-step make-up routine. A product to invest in if you are always on the go or if you are a college going girl this deserves a place in your beauty kit.
Until Next Time
