Lotus Herbals PURE RADIANCE Matte Glow Daily Foundation SPF20-Fresh Ivory 350: Review & Swatches

Hello Lovelies..
So monsoons have finally arrived in North India.All this while Iwas cribbing about the hot and humid weather here and here and  now its been just less than a week of enjoying the showers and I want to see sunlight that makes my clothes,towels,bedding crisp dry..I love rains but I hate the sogginess around :(
This reminds me of an Octave from the childhood:
"As a rule
Man is a fool
When its Hot
He wants it Cool
When its Cool
He wants it Hot
Always wanting
What is NOT!"
 From Poetry---------------------------------------------------------------------->to Vanity :)

I would be the last one to talk about Lotus Herbals Pure Radiance Daily Matte Foundation SPF 20. No I did not buy it any time recently. It was sitting pretty in my stash,not even sitting,it was busy coming in and out of it. So thought should talk about it ;)


Company Claims: 
Lotus Herbals Pure Radiance Matte-Glow Daily Foundation is light reflection texture, oil-free, water based foundation.It has a feather light feel and is natural and safe for daily use. Gives a matte look by fully covering the imperfections in the skin. Add to this an SPF 20 for protection from the Sun.
Its light reflection property makes skin look clearer and gives it a shimmery glow. Contains botanical extracts, jojoba, soy lecithin and grape seeds. 


Price: INR.175/- (available for less online)

Quantity: 25ml

Shade: Fresh Ivory

Packaging: 

The packaging of Lotus Herbals Pure Radiance Daily Matte Foundation SPF 20 is good for the price. It has a nozzle dispenser,which is very practical in terms of controlling the amount of the product. Secondly,its sleek..I prefer flat tubes to the round ones.Nice to hold and easy to dump in the bag :)
But there are cons in the packaging as well:
One,I am one curious woman who wants to know how much product is left in her tube/bottle whatever.
Two, look for yourself:

Yes the classy cap of the not-so-classy tube came off :(

Shades Available:


  • Fresh Ivory 350 (the one I have)
  • Soft Beige 360
  • Caramel 370
My Experience:




Lotus Herbals Pure Radiance Daily Matte Foundation SPF 20 is a medium to full coverage foundation,considering I don't have any noticeable blemishes or scars it works well for me without using a concealer (as it is I'm not a big fan of full-on heavy coverage..until unless you are the Bride offcourse ;).It has a smooth texture and a very mild floral fragrance. One requires very little quantity of this for the whole face (infact if you go a little generous with this one,it might end up making you look cakey..So less-is-more definitely works here)this is also justifies the little quantity offered by the product. It gives me a fresh dewy finish. Its matte thus it looks natural if used in correct amounts. It stays on me for hours and hours,I might require a casual compact touch up after 2-3 hrs but foundation needs not to be disturbed :) But I do feel a bit difficulty in blending it properly..its just that you cannot afford to be careless with this.

My Likes:
1. The shade Fresh Ivory matches me quite well (if not perfectly)
2. Medium to full coverage.
3. Does not feel very heavy on skin.
4. Smell is mild and pleasant.
5. Little quantity is enough for the whole face.
6. Gives a dewy glow.
7. Very affordable.
8. Never broke me out.
9. Sleek packaging,travel friendly.
10. Has SPF :)


My Dislikes:
1. If only I could see how much product I'm still left with.
2. Consistency a bit too thick (I feel like mixing it with moisturiser or lacto calamine)
3. My cap broke :(
4. Limited shade selection.

Last Word: Lotus Herbals Pure Radiance Daily Matte Foundation SPF 20 is a good everyday foundation for a long lasting matte effect. Well-priced and has SPF.

Repurchase: Done with my first tube,already ordered second.

Overall Rating: 3.8/5

Love:
