Streetwear Color Rich Perfection Foundation:
Price: Rs. 170 for 30 ml
Packaging: The foundation comes in a glass bottle and it doesn’t have any sort of pump or dispenser, the mouth of the bottle is wide open and it has to be poured onto hands which gets messy and I often end up spilling too much of it which I end up using on my hands. Bad packaging I would say!
Shade: There are 3 shades available and I’ve got the shade Neutral which looks quite dark on my skin but still I like (read not love) using it when I’m in a hurry (coz of its fast blending ability) and doesn’t want much coverage from my products.
Consistency: It has a liquid consistency and due to its liquid consistency, it is very easy to blend. You can even massage and apply it and still it doesn’t get cakey or streaky, it is that easy to blend!
Finish: The finish is both on the dewy side and matte side.
Coverage: Coverage of the foundation is light but it does hide light blemishes, redness and dark circles and can also be built up to medium. The skin looks quite flawless with two layers. And you can apply it as much as you want as it doesn’t get cakey or patchy! It is a good option for the “no makeup” look and for college going girls as it looks very natural. The foundation can be used up as a makeup base when you are opting for full coverage look as it gives a nice dewy finish to skin which makes a perfect base for other products to go well on skin.
Longevity: Lasts for a good 3-4 hours after which it starts fading and oxidizing on my skin. The foundation also needs to be set with a powder to avoid shiny t-zone and oily patches.
Packaging: Common compact packaging- black case with a built-in mirror and a sponge applicator, what makes the packaging attractive is the girly icon on the compact.
Price: Rs. 160 for 7gm
Shade: Neutral! Same as the foundation shade and only two shades are available Neutral and Beige! The shade Neutral in the compact is a good match for my skin tone (it’s for lighter skin tone) and the other shade Beige is a darker shade and I know it wouldn’t have matched my skin tone like the foundation.
Finish: Smooth and matte but it looks visible and good only if applied with the puff applicator provided with it. Applied with a brush and it looks like nothing has been applied since brush doesn’t pick up much of the product. The coverage is light and can be built up for a bit more coverage!
Longevity: Lasts for a good 3-4 hours keeping oiliness at bay in this time period but after that, you’ll need to touch up if you tend to get quite oily or you live in an extremely hot climate where heat takes up half of your makeup
