Okay, I know this product from Lakme is not a new launch or something but you know what, who cares about new launch or not, some products are just timeless and sort of a must try for every girl and the Lakme invisible foundation is one such product. For reasons unknown this foundation has not got the attention it deserves hence I had to do this review, to do my bit.
The Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation was launched long back but several foundations have been launched after that so this one could have been forgotten or lost in the world of competition. But as they say, if it is worth it, it will stay and that is the case with this foundation.
Now let’s straight get to the review. My shade is 04 and let me tell you honestly that I have been using this foundation forever now. I have tried a couple of other foundations in between only to return to this one again.
In Lakme’s words: Invisible Finish Foundation offers perfect blending and full coverage for a flawless almost invisible

My Thoughts About Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation :
Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation is a lightweight foundation which is perfect for oily skin. I started using this long back and I remember I had picked it up because of the word “invisible”. I was looking for a foundation that does not look made up and landed up with an apt foundation.
It did not cause me any breakouts. The foundation has no fragrance as such and gives a light to medium coverage. This fared as a perfect daily wear foundation for me as I did not want any high coverage on my skin.
One important point that I would like to emphasize is the fact that this particular shade has warm undertones to it so it perfect for medium skin tones, which is the skin tone of most of the Indian girls. It is super blendable and the finish is excellent almost invisible, you can say.
The coverage is buildable too. It does hide minor imperfections well and gives a perfect finish when used on the skin with a foundation brush or a beauty blender. It fares pretty well when it comes to staying power but in summers I use it above a primer so it stays for the whole day on my face.
Pros – :-)
1. Medium coverage and covers minor imperfections on the skin.
2. Easily blendable
3. Light weight
4. Contains SPF 8
5. Easily available
6. Smooth texture
7. Superb finishing
9. Does not look cakey
10. Good staying power
Cons – :-(
1. Does not cover deep marks
2. May not be great for travel use, thanks to the sturdy bottle
3. Not a great choice for dry skin beauties
4. Not many shade options available
Will I purchase it again?
Yes, of course I have not come across any other foundation that can give this a tough competition in terms of a daily wear foundation. So until that happens, I shall continue to use this as a daily wear.
BnB Rating : 4/5
Final words: Lakme Invisible Finish foundation is a daily wear, light weight medium coverage foundation that is super blendable and perfect for summers. You need to try it to believe it :-)
