Ladies often refrain from using makeup daily. Often they complain of breakouts on skin or oily look due to usage of foundation. It happens because skin pores get blocked with foundation and further cause skin problems if not cleaned daily. I use foundation almost daily and have always chosen from Lakme daily range. I was an ardent fan of Lakme daily souffle and Lakme face magic daily foundation. However I was looking for an advanced foundation with more benefits, which is why I switched to Lakme Absolute Mattereal Mousse Foundation.
Lakme claims- Feather-light finish easily blends into the skin keeping it healthy, hides pores & evens out skin tones. The new SPF 8 formula protects the skin from sun damage, leaving it peachy-soft & naturally flawless for up to 16 hours.

Positives I experienced-
-The soft cake like filling in the round container is ultra smooth on skin. It gives amatte finish, gliding on very easily.
-The finish on skin feels like velvet.
-The foundation is not messy, does not spill and is not cakey on skin either. Your skin looks natural and not overdone.
-I am happy my skin does not look greasy or patchy after its application. Itcovers blemishes without weighing down skin. I use this daily!
-SPF 8 comes as an added advantage protecting skin from sun damage. I really love this foundation.
-The packaging is cute. Come in a round ball shape container with silver lid. (Keep away from kids lest they should start playing with it)

Word of caution-
-Works on my skin as I stay indoors in air conditioned room for 8 hours and my skin is a combination one. However foundation may run out in humid climate. Those with dry skin should moisturize face before applying.
- Gives full but light coverage. Not recommended for those who need heavy coverage or for party makeup.
-For daily use, price is on higher side.
- Does not stay for 16 hours. Good for 6-7 hours. Have to reapply after 8 hours.
-Though the content is cakey and spill proof, it should be held cautiously. If tumbled or tilted, the whole content falls out in one piece. (I have suffered twice)
I would rate it 3.5 on 5 since I look for more coverage in a little lesser price. Rest, the product is fantastic with matte feather touch.
