I always believe that we all inherit a lot of things from our mothers be it beauty, nature or style. Similarly to that we also tend to fall for the brands they use, and this is how I have been passed down ‘love & loyalty’ towards Lakme! I have seen my mom using this brand since ages & how she refuses to replace it with any other, for its sheer affordability & quality.

While I have been stocking certain Lakme products dedicatedly in my vanity since the time I’ve started using makeup, when I got to know about their latest ‘9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation’ launch, I knew I had to try these out too. 

Pricing: 600 INR each

Packaging: Beautifully packed, the rose gold compact comes with a mirror & a puff, where a separate bottom section with perfect ventilation is provided to place the puff, to keep bacteria at bay! 
  • Rose Silk
  • Ivory Cream
  • Silky Golden
  • Natural Light
  • Honey Dew
  • Natural Almond

The brand this time unveiled six shades, including two new shades for dusky/ deep hued skin tones! So basically, there is one for each woman amongst us.

The product comes with an agenda to serve the purpose of a primer, a foundation & a compact; ALL IN ONE! The primer lets you create a smooth base for the foundation to blend easily & conceal the lines for you to achieve a perfect matte look. 

The texture is extremely silky, and the product feel really light on the face. Rich in terms of coverage, the only place where it lacks is with its claim to sustain 9 to 5. I felt a need to retouch somewhere in between.

So for someone like me who doesn’t really prefer heavy make up everyday, I think it is a ideal pick to achieve a natural smooth look. Perfect for summers, as I felt less sweaty on the face after wearing it to work daily for a week. 

Price wise, I think it is a steal as you get the results of three different products in one, that to of premium quality!

I hope this review would help you in your purchase.
