This will be a very useful post for those who are newbies in doing makeup. Actually these two products which I am gonna review now are from Lakme 9 to 5 office Stylist makeup range which claims to provide “No touch ups” makeup finish. Read on to know does it really stand on its claims.
Lakme 9to5 Weightless Mousse Foundation Review:
What the product Says: This formula feels soft & incredibly weightless and provides the desired coverage for daily use. It blends effortlessly onto skin to conceal imperfections with a matte finish that stays through the day. A Foundation so lightweight, You may forget you are wearing any foundation at all! Suitable for all skin types.
Shade: 01 Rose Ivory
Price: 575 INR for 29 g
My take on the product: If I can give you one reason why I admire this product is- its texture. It is so light and weightless, that you don’t even feel like you’re touching a cream or any foundation. The first time you touch this foundation you feel like you’re touching some baby powder. It’s so soft, smooth, silky and lightweight. It can easily be applied on your face with just your fingers. No need of any foundation brushes to apply, unlike others. It gives such a even finish on your face, you don’t even feel that you have wore foundation. I sometimes even skip applying compact or face powder after applying this foundation. It nicely covers all the imperfections on your face. I have acne prone skin, and faded scars. It covers up all those so well.
Weightless mousse Foundation, that gives a no-makeup look.

Can go with a moisturizer(with SPF) and this mousse foundation, when running out of time.
Suitable for all skin types.
Doesn’t stay more than 5 hrs for oily skin beauties,, need a touch-up.
No SPF, Although If you have a moisturizer with SPF in it, then its 🙂

Lakme 9to5 Matte Complexion Compact Review:
What the product Says: With a unique oil absorbing formula that gives you a matte and flawless look throughout the day. Infused with vitamin E to condition your skin.
Shade: Melon Matte
Price: 375 INR for 8 g
My take on the product: This Compact comes in a glossy rose shade packaging. The powder is lightweight and gives a matte finish look when applied with any foundation. It has three different shades- Melon, Apricot and almond. Mine is Melon matte shade which is suitable for my skin tone( light/fair skin tone). This goes best when applied with Lakme 9 to 5 Mousse foundation. Earlier i used Ponds BB cream and this compact. It gives more of a cakey makeup look, as the BB cream was so heavy. 🙁 Below are the pictures i attached after using both mousse foundation and compact. Let me quickly sum up the pros and cons of this compact.
Lightweight and soft pressed compact powder.
Gives a matte finish makeup look.
Good for oily skin and normal skin beauties.
Controls oils and doesn’t clog pores.
perfect for office makeup look.
Doesn’t stay for more than 5 hours, need to touch up.
May be drying for dry skin beauties.
