Hello Chicsters!

Since the wedding season is round the corner, foundations are at an all-time high demand. Foundation is not something which I personally use on everyday basis but when it comes to special occasions like weddings and social gatherings they help you add that extra oomph factor.
So, without further delay, let’s have a look at top 10 foundations in India at present –

1. Lakme Absolute Illuminating Foundation (Price – Rs. 750 for 14 Grams )
This is the recent launch of Lakme and is perfect to create a glowing wedding look. The foundation is perfect for those who opt for a dewy finish. It illuminates your skin without making it look oily or OTT. It is can be worn as a daywear as well as a nightwear foundation however, don’t forget to use a light moisturizing cream underneath as it is not that moisturizing on its own. Also, try to work with a brush when you use this foundation as the finish is much better then.
2. L’Oreal Mat Magique Foundation (Price – Rs.476 )
The foundation comes in a fun and quirky poppin' pink packaging which is extremely travel friendly. This is said to be one of the holy grail foundations for Oily skin. It provides full coverage with matte finish and controls oil and shine to a very large extent. It is also a sweat proof foundation meaning you can easily wear it on a hot or humid day.

This is one of the best offerings from Bourjois and personally one of my favorites too. The foundation has a gel like feel to it and it will remind you of serums with silicone in it.

This is another one of my favourite foundations and is an absolute dream come true for oily or combination skin types. The foundation is creamy and moisturizing in terms of it’s texture and it is because of this creamy formula the product blends right in and eventually settles in a matte finish. This foundation is extremely pigmented and you only need a little amount of it. In my experience it works best when used with a real techniques sponge.

  3. h wow! I have oily skin as well and had my fair share of acne-troubled times. While doing fall makeup lesson , I know about many facts about not only makeup, but also skin!These products look promising. I'm particularly interested in the concealer and eye liner. It's quite difficult to look for a concealer that could really conceal and within a mom's beauty budget!

  4. Have you tried Huda one? This is a really helpful and detailed review. I love Huda and I'm desperate to get the eye-shadow palette but it's a bit pricey for me atm. Though recently I did flawless make-up lesson, so I try to experiment with new products to improve my skill. I've also seen these and thought they looked gorgeous but worried they might be a bit too much. Seeing your swatches though, they obviously have great pigmentation but aren't over the top. Definitely might consider getting this now, when I have a bit more!
