My Opinion: - Lakme Face Magic Daily Wear Souffle is my first ever foundation, I bought my first tub years back and since then I continued using it. The shade I am going to review is my summer shade, Marble, but in the winters I use the shade Pearl. This is a water based foundation (read tinted moisturizer), which is good for my oily skin. The packaging is so cute; it’s a heavy glass jar with a beige-pink plastic screw on lid. On opening the main lid, another plastic protective shield can be seen which saves the product from getting transferred to the main lid.

                             It smells weird, like some medicine. But the annoying smell is gone after 5-10 mins of application. The consistency is somewhere in between a cream and a lotion. It’s not very runny and not very thick either. This soufflé is very light weight and blends well into the skin. It’s a product that can be used on a daily basis and specially when in a hurry.

                                  This foundation never broke me out and inspite of using many other foundations, I always keep a jar of this soufflé with me. It gives no coverage and you have to hide flaws with a concealer if any. If not properly blended, it may give a streaky look to the face. One very annoying thing about this foundation is that it stains my collars and gets transferred to the cell phone screen. It is embarrassing to use a tissue in public if I have this soufflé on my face.

                                      This soufflé oxidizes on oily skin and gives a orangey look, so be careful with this. The lasting power is horrible at 2 hours max (3 hours in an ac environment) during the summers but in winters it stays on for 3-4 hours and more in an air-conditioned environment. I like this foundation because it dries off to give a matte finish to my skin. And also its finish is more like liquid foundation- set-with-compact type.

Pros: -
Dirt cheap
Never broke me out till date
Water based, dries off to a matte finish
Light weight
Cute packaging

Cons: -
No coverage
Lasting power is not good
Only 3 shades available, the shade Marble is a little dark for me even after I get tanned
Oxidizes on oily skin
Ingredients not listed
SPF not mentioned

                            I rate this Lakme Magic Daily Wear Souffle 3.75 out of 5. Inspite of all the cons, I use it and will keep using it. It’s good for combination as well as oily skin but girls with dry skin stay out as this soufflé dries out once applied. Gives a streaky look on dry skin, my friend said this to me. This is my first foundation and I prefer calling it a tinted moisturiser.

                            Hope you enjoyed reading this review and benefitted too. Please do share your views about this product whether or not you have used it. Thank you and do have a good day.
