Hello Girls!!! Today’s review is for Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation. This is a new addition by Lakme to its 9 to 5 range. Lakme 9 to 5 range is especially designed for everyday use for college and working women. Applying foundation is the most important step of our makeup regime. So it is very important to select the right product to hide the imperfections. Considering the yellow undertone of this mousse foundation I thought of trying out this product. It is easily available at counters or online shopping portals.
It comes in rose gold colored tube with a screw cap. The tube has very small hole to get the accurate amount of product out for usage. Hence this maintains the hygiene of the product and even reduces the wastage. The tube is very handy and easy to carry. Therefore this foundation is travel friendly.
This formula feels soft and 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.
Shades Available in India
- Rose Ivory
- Rose Honey
- Beige Vanilla

INR 575 for 29g
My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation
As it is very light weight in texture so it blends easily into the skin. One doesn’t even feel anything being applied. It do feel little oily at the time of application but later on it gives matte finish with natural look. As a result this foundation is perfect for everyday use. Lakme 9 to 5 products claim the staying power of 8 hrs but seems like Lakme failed to justify it. It stays good for 5-6 hrs.
Moreover the biggest disadvantage of this product is its coverage. It gives a very minimum coverage. Therefore it is unable to hide dark circles, discoloration and blemishes on the skin. Don’t apply more than three layers of foundation for coverage otherwise it will make the skin look cakey. Furthermore all the color shades available are very close to each other so it is difficult to find exact matching shade for Indian skin tone.
In addition to that considering the coverage property of the product, it is highly priced. More product options giving medium to full coverage of this range are available in the market. If you have a flawless skin than this product will work good for you to achieve natural look. But it is not suitable for girls with blemishes and acne marks. Therefore my experience with this product is not as per the expectations.
Being a product from such a well-known brand this foundation has done no good for me. Buying a CC cream is a better option than this product. Hence I will definitely not buy this product again.
