Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation Shell Shade Review & Swatches

Hello Dolls,
Happy Sunday Girls, today I am going to review Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation Shell Shade. I bought this foundation in a health and glow shop, I have tested and did swatches too much before choosing this foundation :p. The SA almost lost her patience, because she recommended me marble shade, which will give ghostly look and lighter shade for my skin tone. I did wasted my money so much by wrong shade selection previously. This time this Shell shade satisfied me or not? Let's see the Review...

About The Product:
Best makeup foundations for daily use
Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation Shell Shade 
Price      295 Rs for 27ml   
Shelf life 30 months
Available easily in all offline and online beauty stores.

Product Description:



Ingredients:
Couldn't find anywhere in the package Sorry :(

My Experience with Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation Shell Shade:
Package:
The package is very attractive dark maroon colour tube with square like screw lid comes inside a thick maroon colour paper box. The foundation tube is compact to carry with us and the main think here is this foundation tube learned some secret from lays chips pocket. That is inside the package fill 3/4 of air and 1/4 of product. Yeah I got irritated when the tube filled by air more than foundation liquid.



Texture, Smell & Shade:
The texture of the Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation is bit runny, but comfortable to use. This Shell shade especially looks like very yellowish when you take it out from the tube. The smell is same like other lakme foundation range, nothing special.

My Take:
This is the best daily wear foundation which I found recently. This foundation is very easy to blend like a tinted moisturizer. I use fingers to apply foundation when I am in hurry. This foundation absolutely cooperates with me when I am in hurry to apply and blends on the skin in a minutes. There is no cakey or yellowish appearance because of this foundation. I was bit skeptical to apply this foundation in the starting days, because it is very yellowish.
 This is very lightweight foundation and I never feel heavy on my skin. But, this gives only sheer to medium coverage, doesn't hide your major flaws. Well I don't have major flaws, but I have few minor flaws which can be hided by this foundation well with a compact powder. The staying power is good in this monsoon and I hope this will be better option for my winter foundation choice too. For summer I can't use this foundation and even in a humid weather too.
 If you sweat this foundation is that's all finished, yeah it won't stay more than 1 to 2 hours in summer. But in this monsoon and for coming winter this foundation will be a good choice for oily skin types. This foundation is best suitable for daily wear. It stays up to 3 to 4 hours in normal weather conditions.

This foundation gives a good natural finish, especially this shell shade from this range is best suitable for medium skin tones like me. I am not sure about my MAC shade, still it is NW43. I was using marble shade in lakme before which makes me looks like a ghost. Especially in this range, this shell shade best suitable for wheatish skin colour.

My Likes with Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation Shell Shade:
  • Easily Available.
  • Travel friendly.
  • This shell shade is best suitable for medium skin tones.
  • Best daily wear foundation.
  • Stays for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Easily blends on the skin.
  • liquid but thick texture.
  • Gives sheer to medium coverage.
  • Very light on the skin.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Doesn't make the skin cakey or ghostly appearance like other range lakme foundations does.
My Dislikes with Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation Shell Shade:
  • 3/4 of the tube filled with air, so compared to the quantity it is costly.
  • Not suitable for summers for oily skin.
  • Dry skin needs moisture underneath for a smooth application in winters.
  • May not suitable for very matured skin like above 40 years old ladies I think.
  • No ingredient list :(
  • SPF 8 no use, you need to use a good sunscreen under this foundation. Lakme are you kidding?
My Final Verdict:
Lakme Silk Naturelle Daily Foundation Shell Shade is a best one if you are looking for a decent daily wear foundation which will suits perfectly. I found this is the best foundation by shade wise in lakme.

Hope My review is helpful for you all,
Share your thoughts and stay Happy,

  21. Lakme was a big market over here but slowly the brand faded. Its difficult to find Lakme products and sure they used to be my fav esp their lipstick shaded and glitter for the eyes. Nice write-up and looks like its worth the try, also adore the packaging.
