This is my first ever foundation product in makeup. Believe me I was not into makeup except eyes an year before. I got this to wear only for special occasions. I heard that it was a great product for beginners though I didn’t like it much.

My Take on Lakme Face Magic Daily Wear Souffle:
Packaging: It comes in a cute pot with a second lid covering. The packaging makes it very travel friendly and it does not leak. But the product gets a bit messy as we have to dip fingers every time. And the cakey formation on the sides of the inner lid is really a problem and the product kind of dries a lot there.
Fragrance: It has the typical Lakme fragrance. It smells pleasan like their moisturisers. The fragrance is not at all overpowering and disappears within few hours.
Consistency: The souffle has the consistency of Lacto Calamine; not creamy and neither too runny, it’s really good. I refer this consistency in foundations too. It is very smooth and feels hydrating as we apply. And it is ideal for dry skinned and combination skinned beauties. It stays for around 4 hours maximum in AC environment. It is not sweat proof by the way.
Working: As per the claims, I don’t know about the UV protection part. This one brightens my face considerably. Though if blended too much it became flaky and fell off my skin. The product kinda gets separated and you can feel a bit of oily water emulsion while blending. It gives average coverage. I have pigmentation issues near my chin and sides of the face because of pollution in Bangalore. This one covers it up easily but I prefer their foundation instead of this.
The shade natural marble is good for me right now because of my severe tan but after some time it made me look orangey. It is good for daily wear but not for me. Dry skinned beauties will love this. Oily skin will need lots of powder. I also had a bit of sweating issues immediately after applying. You can notice near my lips. It transfers to anything in contact
FOTD: I am wearing the souffle with aloe vera gel (patanjali), Lakme Radiance Compact, Elle 18 Red Rogue Lipstick, and Dazzler Lipstick Shade No 134 as blush. It is quite nude so barely noticeable in pictures and gives perfect natural blush. I look warm here because of sunlight and haven’t worn any concealer so that you can see how much it covers.
Why I like this Souffle?:
- Good brand
- Gives medium coverage
- Pleasant smell
- Smooth and soft to blend
- Very hydrating , ideal for dry skinned people
- Dirt cheap
Why I don’t like this Souffle?:
- Cakes up on the lid
- Flaky if blended too much and fall off
- Turns a bit orangey after some time
- Not sweat proof and transfers easily.
MABH Rating: 3 /5
Do I Recommend?:
Yes! Surely for people with dry skin and combination skin maybe. It is definitely good for college goers and mild makeup use or starters.
Would I Buy Again?:
Nope. I am happier with my foundation. I am using this like only occasionally for eye priming purposes. The caked up part works good as a mild concealer since I don’t have dark circles and this is very close to my skin tone at present even if mine is recovering from the tan and pigmentation.
Special note: To Adi and Lancy for putting the CTM routine importance post. I have never been more thankful to anyone more than you guys. Now whatever product that didn’t work before is working for me. My pigmentation and tan reduced considerably. A hundred kisses and hugs to both you beauties.
