Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25(product review)

Image source: Google images(
I have been looking for a good foundation for my oily acne prone skin from a long time & I think I got a good one from Lakme’s absolute make up range.
Price: 575 INR for 15ml
Ingredients: It’s with SPF & vitamin B3, other than this, no list of ingredients given.
Company’s claim: Prolong that fair & natural finish & enjoy full coverage all day long with this fabulous foundation. This ultra –light, water based, oil free formulation also contains vitamin B3 to keep skin soft & supple.
Visibly faire skin
Last up to 16 hours

My experience: I am quite late in reviewing this foundation coz I picked it in May & I started using it last month when I finished my Revlon foundation, that’s why condition of my bottle isn’t that good. J
Lakme absolute foundation is cream based. It blends in to skin very easily without giving cakey look. (Best thing about it)
I tried using it with & without moisturizer & in both the case it blends well, though it doesn’t dry my skin at any moment but I prefer to use moisturizer to get a soft & natural look.
It gives a good even finish to my skin .I was bit hesitated to use it as it says I am matte but its finish is not that matte to look unnatural & made up ,its semi matte.
It never broke me out. :)
Its stay is of 7-8 hours, till this time it keeps me absolutely oil free.
Coming to the most important thing that is coverage : it gives full coverage for my skin (I have 2-3 post pimple marks & slightly dark under eyes)I just have to go for touch up after 6-7 hours, till that it keeps me oil free(I love it for this reasonJ)
It has SPF 25 which is a good thing.
Its packaging looks pretty from outside but I couldn’t see how much product is left. I love the transparent bottles. :(  But I liked its pump dispenser, which gives the required quantity only & doesn’t waste product & maintain hygiene.

This pea size is enough for whole face & gives good coverage. As soon as I apply it I can see brightened & clearer skin.
I love this product & using it very frequently. It can be used daily coz it never broke me out & have SPF .It gives good coverage without making cakey made up look on my skin. It claims to stay for 16 hours but I think that is possible with touch ups .On my oily skin it stay for 7-8 hours, which is good enough for me coz I don’t keep make-up for long. I liked it & will buy again.
Have you tried this product? Then please share your experience.
Keep smiling & be beautiful with meJ

  2. hi..........i am very new to make up…..havent applied any foundation so far….but i really want to start…….plzzz can you suggest me which foundation and compact powder should i start with……i do SWEAT a lot………and have wheatish skin . plzzzzzzzz do suggest…….i am eagerly waiting to start my make up…….thanks a lotttttt

    1. @namrata: dear namrata..i wish you would have told your skin type.. i have oily skin & i dont sweat a lot but i do get oil on my face in summers very often ..
      before applying make up use some primer that can hold your make up even when you sweat & since your are too new to make up you can try rustic art aloe vera gel which actually helped the above foundation to stay far more than usual on my skin. talking about products.. you can try products which claims to controls sweat and oil.
      i would suggest you- lakme absolute white intense cover ,revlon new complexion one step make up compact,chambor sheer delight ultra matte foundation oil free.
      For compact you can definetly go for mac and chambor silver shadow sahre your problems & experiences , i would alwasy love to help you.. and i will try to do a detailed post on this ..

  3. Am so glad to find your blog.i keep coming back to lakme inspite of having tried avon,maybelline,annaandre.i think its coz of the perfect shades that lakme gives.Nothng matches our indian skintone as closely as lakme.
    Having said that,am yet to try the more expensive brands like chanel,clinique,clarins and Mac which promise long lasting and full coverage wear for oilyskin.I have very oily skin and i would want to try any makeup that can keep my skin for 5-6hours.
    I havent tried the lakme intense white cover.i have only used their perfecting liquid foundation which is good at 99rs.And their invisible finish foundation.
    How good is intense cover in comparison to the other two?

  4. getting engaged after a week.......i dont have any idea regarding which makeup to do...........i am a lakme user.....plzzzzz suggest me what sort of make up should i wear on that day..........but i would lyk to stay as much natural as i can.....the colour of my engagement dress is carrot colour.........plzzz suggest smthng from the lakme absolute range and the way i should use it..........thnQ
