A great makeup base can transform skin looking like a million bucks. You just need to match your shade and prefect texture of the base, in order to achieve the flawless looking’ Second skin’. Mousse foundation is some of the best makeup base for oily and combination skin people due to oil controlling properties.Â It is known as one the great makeup ways that can save your day from Humidity and sweat. Recently, I triedÂ Colorbar Flawless Finish Mousse Foundation- Honey Medium and after using it a couple of times, here goes my review.
Reveal skinâ€™s idealÂ complexionÂ with this medium to full coverageÂ foundationÂ that transforms from a lightweight creamy mousse into a matte, feather-light powder for a flawless finish. The powdersâ€™ unique, spherical shape compresses like aÂ cushion, delivering a velvety-smooth, touchable feel and superior comfort onÂ application.
GlycerineÂ and broad spectrum SPF 10 protect against free-radical damage caused by environmental stress. Simply touch and go for an effortlessly perfected look.
- For best results, apply with picture perfectÂ Foundation Brush.
- Apply the foundation using circular movements, going from the centre of the face outwards. Start with the forehead and work towards the neck.
Price-Â INR 800 for 15 gm
This mousse foundation comes in a gorgeousÂ silverÂ box outerÂ packaging, just like all otherÂ Colorbar products. The product is housed in a small and slightly flat round tub which looks really cute. It is secured with a sleekÂ metallicÂ silver cap, in which you can see yourselfÂ Â It has also an inner lid which keeps the product at its place. Colorbar retails thisÂ foundation mousseÂ for INR 800 for 15 gramme of quantity.
Shade, Texture andÂ Consistency-Â
This Â Mousse FoundationÂ comes in a total of 8 shades which is great as you can choose your perfect match. Â I am NC 42 inÂ MACÂ and always prefer makeup base with yellow undertones as it compliments my skin tone the best and gives meÂ natural looking finish. Here, I got the shade â€œHoney- Mediumâ€, which is said to be a perfect match for tannedÂ mediumÂ to deeper skin tones. It has a slightÂ orangeâ€“yellowÂ tint which is known for providingÂ even skinÂ tone.
The consistency isÂ softÂ and soÂ smoothÂ to touch. Itâ€™s more like a well behave- jelly-like consistency to me. ThisÂ mousse foundationÂ reminds me ofÂ Lakme absolute mousse foundation. Â generally, Mousse foundation is known for theirÂ oil controllingÂ properties and gives you flawless looking skin.
I am a total liquid foundation person and I love using my Max Studio fix fluid SPF 15-NC 42 foundation to the core. Although, I have used Maybelline and Lakme mousse foundation and the Lakme one is my favourite of them. I got the shade honey medium which is perfect for my skin tone as it gives me a natural finish. it has slight orange undertones unlike Lakme one but cancel out the imperfection to an extent.
It has the perfect mousse like consistency just like whipped cream which spreads like a dream and blends seamlessly. I used it after prepping my skin as it gives a better finish with a primer. It gives really nice ‘second skin’ Â finish and doesn’t give a white cast, unlike the other foundation. It photographs really well and doesn’t cake up either. It is great makeup base for oily skin beauties and If you are someone who has dry skin and want to try this out then mix it with a good amount of moisturiser to get even finish.
It controls oil to a great extent and one can always increase the longevity of foundation by touching up with a compact. This foundation accentuates dry patches and fine lines, if not prepping well. I really wish it came with more quantity. It is a great foundation to use in hot humid days of summer. Do try this out! 🙂
