My Experience with Shade 140, Golden Beige:
This review is based upon my oily, acne prone and sensitive skin. Genuinely speaking, I don’t apply makeup at all and it is just at important and special occasions that I apply it. Honestly, I did not own even a single foundation before this one. My problematic skin which often tends to react to everything I put on my face has always been the reason behind this.
Because I always have uninvited guests on my face which leave dark spots too, I avoid makeup to stop the condition from getting worstened. When I saw how beautiful this foundation made my cousin’s skin look, I decided that I wanted to invest in it.
I went ahead and got it for myself. Someone who doesn’t apply a foundation instantly applies a full coverage foundation on her awful looking dark spots would obviously love it and will feel like she got the Sorcerer’s stone.
First of all, I love the hygienic packaging of this product which is sturdy enough and also allows to dispense the required quantity. I take just two pumps at the back of my hand and dot it all over my face. A primer is not to be missed when you are doing makeup, especially with oily skin, so I make sure to put it on before applying this foundation.
Once it is fully dotted on my face, I use a damp beauty blender and start blending it into my face. Oh My God! It provides a beautiful coverage, blends in to the skin really quickly and easily, leaves a natural finish, makes the skin look hydrated and flawless and hides all the flaws in a single go.
The reason I chose the shade Golden Beige was because I watched loads and loads of reviews on YouTube and concluded that it was just the perfect shade for fair, Indian skin toned girls.. Before investing Rs. 1400, deciding the perfect shade was a struggle, A REAL ONE! The shade matched my skin beautifully even more than I expected.
After I put the rest of my makeup on my face, I go ahead and take a lot of photographs, selfies as well as flash photography. I love the fact that this foundation doesn’t leave any ghost face flash back on the face and looks nice, flawless and seamless.
The artificial smell of this foundation lasts almost till the time I take my makeup off which is a turn off for me. I wouldn’t mind having a mild smell in my makeup but I really don’t enjoy it’s artificial smell a lot.
One coat of this foundation is enough for me on days where I am looking for a flawless yet natural looking face and my acne scars are not very dark. On the days, I want some extra glam going on or have hedious dark spots, I go ahead and build up the base by applying one more layer.
To my surprise, this foundation looks little cakey on doubling up. It accentuates in to my smile lines, pores and gives me creases. It does stay for a really really long time but the most disappointing thing about it is that it oxidises and makes my skin look much darker than it usually is.
Though it is a full coverage foundation, it doesn’t feel heavy at all and leaves no shine on the face. It requires no touch ups and doesn’t transfer which makes it nice for weddings and longer events. It stays nicely on almost all skin types and gives a beautiful finish.
It’s a really good foundation but I’d suggest you to choose one shade lighter than your skin tone so that it matches the actual color of your skin in around half an hour once it starts to oxidise. It may look cakey on doubling up but generally, a second coat is not required because one layer is enough to impart a beautiful look.
It glides over the skin effortlessly, blends easily, hides all spots, sets gracefully and doesn’t come off easily. It’s texture is very creamy, breathable and comfortable to wear.

Will I repurchase it?
Yes. Overall, I am happy with my experience with this foundation although it has a few cons. This bottle is going to last me really long because I use it rarely and a little amount of product goes a long way. The only thing I’d like to tell you is that if I repurchase it, I’d choose a lighter shade to make my skin and my makeup look like one.
Will I recommend it?
Yes. If you are thinking of trying this product, I’d suggest you to buy it but don’t forget to do your research about the perfect shade as per your skin tone. It tends to crease up a little bit when you put it on for a really long time but it doesn’t look awkard or noticable.
Is it worth the money?
Yes. I know it may seem a little bit pricey but honestly, it is worth it. The coverage it provides is simply amazing and gives a really beautiful base. What makes it more value for money is the fact that just two or three pumps of product are more than enough, so a bottle is going to last you really long!
My Ratings: 4/5
Final Verdict: Overall, it is a really nice full coverage foundation which gives a flawless finish without feeling heavy or uncomfortable. It lasts all day long and hides all dark spots, pigmentation, scars and dark circles in a single drop.
It blends in to the skin very effortlessly but accentuates the fine lines after few hours. It doesn’t require any touch up and doesn’t transfer either. It oxidises and makes the skin look darker due to which I suggest buying one shade lighter to your skin tone. A very little amount of product goes a long way and is definitely worth buying.
