So today, here is a review on the foundation shade Soft Beige. Its is from Lotus herbals!
Price and Quantity:
Rs.175 for 25 ml.
360 Soft Beige
Lotus Herbals products have worked pretty well for me. Their lipsticks and sunscreens are my favorite among-st the lot. So I thought of giving their foundation a try because the claims of matte and oil free are a major attraction to me since I’m oily skinned.
The packaging is pretty good. The foundation is packaged in a sturdy plastic bottle having a screw cap. The nozzle has a small hole to dispense the foundation. I prefer this type of packaging where the product doesn’t get waste unlike some foundation bottles which have a wide mouth opening which results in product wastage. This foundation bottle easily fits in your bag due to its sleek design.
Now let’s talk about the shade. When it comes to selecting foundations, I always go for the shade in beige. Any foundation having the beige shade matches my skin tone very well.
So you ought to be careful while choosing the right shade for you. I only wish there were more shades.
Coming to the actual product, the foundation has a medium consistency. It is a bit difficult to blend. Since I use Lotus Herbals Matte Sunscreen first, it makes the task of blending this foundation more difficult. So I mix this foundation with a small quantity of moisturizer for easy blending. It dries up in around 2 minutes or so. This foundation has a mild floral fragrance which goes away soon after application.
This foundation gives a light coverage. This one is not for those who want full coverage. It is more like a tinted moisturizer. I like the fact that it does not feel heavy on my skin. So it is true to its claims of feather-feel. The foundation won’t give the cake or made up look even if you layer it on. It also evens out the skin tone well. The foundation has SPF-20 which is an added bonus. If you are in a hurry you can skip the sunscreen. I am so addicted to my sunscreen, I never skip it especially during summer. About its claims of being oil free, my face slowly turns oily in around 3 hours. After that I need to touch up with compact. This one works better compared to some oil free foundations which I have used. I ended up with an oily face within an hour. So this one works better.
