A foundation is the most important part of your makeup routine.
If you cannot get your foundation right, everything else that follows is a disaster.
So while you shop for makeup, the first thing you should invest your time and money on is a foundation. Once you perfect the art of foundation, it makes it easier for you to choose the other makeup according to the look that your foundation provides you with.
Till date, I’ve used about five different brands of foundation. Today I’m going to review my recent buy, the Lakme 9 to 5 Flawless Makeup Mousse Foundation, in the shade Pearl.

What Does the Brand Claim About it?
Lakme claims that its 9 to 5 Flawless Makeup foundation is a high coverage foundation that keeps you looking flawless, all day long. It does not smudge or streak and leaves the skin feeling supple for hours.
How to Use it
The Lakme 9 to 5 flawless Makeup foundation is a mousse foundation, which comes in a 30 ml bottle with a nozzle on top through which the mousse can easily be squeezed out. To apply it-
- Open the lip and press the nozzle to pour the amount of foundation needed for your face.
- Dip your finger into the blob of foundation and apply it in spots all over your face.
- Use a beauty blender or foundation brush in dabbing movements to blend it into your skin.
My Experience with the Lakme 9 to 5 Flawless Makeup Foundation
I have been using this foundation for the past two months now. The foundation blends pretty well into my skin and lasts for about six to seven hours. The mousse is very soft in texture and does not feel cakey on the skin. True to its name, the foundation gives a flawless look if you apply it on the properly moisturized skin.
It does not work well on dry skin. It shows powdery patches if my skin has not been given the time to absorb the moisturizer properly. But besides that, it gives my face a natural look and compliments my fair skin tone. It does not smudge or streak. The tube is small enough to fit into a handbag and so I can carry it with me whenever necessary.
