About Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 :

  • Ultra light
  • Oil free
  • Water based skin cover for naturally fair and breathable skin
  • Lasts for 16 hours
  • Vitamin B3 and SPF 25

My experience with Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 :

  1. First thing I really liked about this product (Golden medium) is that this shade is very close to my skin tone (a little.. bit lighter tone). So my search for a right foundation cream ended with this one (hope so..)
  2. The foundation cream is very smooth and easily spreadable. Now if you ask me about its coverage. Well I would say it gives a medium coverage.
  3. Longitivity is just perfect. It stayed in my skin for more than 10 hours and which is super sufficient for me.
  4. It also protects from sun. Yes…It comes with SPF 25, an added advantage to a foundation cream.
  5. Though its consistency is creamy, I never felt sweaty applying it. Even after 6 to 7 hours my skin was just normal, completely free from oil. (Mine is a combination and acne prone skin )

Let me show you a few swatches.

What I liked about Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 :-


  • I personally felt that Lakme has researched Indian skin tones thoroughly and have launched these three shades – ” Ivory white”, “Golden medium”  “Beige honey” .So Ladies..give it a try !!
  • Easily portable
  • Reasonably priced
  • Matte finish
  • SPF 25
  • Oil free skin and I did not have pop outs.
  • For every pump, a little cream comes out and which is sufficient for the whole face. So Shelf life is at least a year or a year and a half
  • I prefer it for daily use.


What I did not like about Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 :-


  • List of the ingredients were not mentioned anywhere in the bottle
  •  As the bottle is opaque, it is difficult to make out the quantity left out


Rating: 4.5/5


Have you tried Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 ?




  1. Will make a good everyday foundation but then again I would not spend almost 600 bucks on something very BB cream-ish 😛 well most of the good BB creams are also around the same price range, sadly.

  2. I think the best part about this foundation is the pump dispenser it looks really classy! :p
    Judging by the limited range I am sure none of the 3 colours will suit me, so gonna give this a skip but nicely reviewed! 🙂

  3. Love the packaging…and ur nail art :-)) Very nicely reviewed Jishaa :yes: I adore the compact in this range :heart: but found the foundations too heavily fragranced for my sensitive nose :-/

  4. I kind of liked this product a lot, shade golden medium suits me too and it photographs well in daylight, coverage is good too, much more than b b cream, but yes one thing if one doesnt get a shade , dont buy it, it will leave horrible white cast on pple above nc 40! if one is below nc 37, they r gonna like it a lot, its a winner for some and a passe for some.

      • Ya product ispretty good, it has buildable coverage and stays on skin for along time too, my skin looks flawless with it, when my sis who is whose skin is much darker than mine used it, OMG she looked like the Grudge 3 ghosts, horrible white cast, did u see nowlakme has come up with face stylist foundi which costs 1200, my god, they r charging so much and they have compe up with only 3 shades, isse acha to elle18 foundi which has 5 shades

        • Thing is when companies don’t take much chances with shade range when there is new product in the market..this is the reason very few shades are launched in India unlike abroad.
