Many a times I get questions from girls-asking me to suggest a good foundation-an ideal one for everyday wear in Indian conditions. It should be something that wont harm skin as well as the pocket and also should be long staying, giving a non-patchy finish and which must also be available in a wide variety of shades to choose from. Whew-sounds like finding the perfect foundation is like finding the perfect Man for a finicky girl!!! :D
Okay so here I am going to review my most used foundation out of all-something I have been using since 2009-only to remain ever impressed and loyal (I haven’t bought any other foundation so many times!) to this product. Why-because it is an almost “perfect man” in the world of foundations :D
I found the following details about this foundation in Medplus Beauty website from where you can order. There are currently three shades available. What is bit alarming is that this product often goes out of stock-so I buy my next pack just when my current one is around the middle of the bottle .

The shades are:
The writing on the foundation pack says:
For the look of a perfectly natural skin:
@Light as air foundation that allows the skin to breathe
@Gives a no makeup look and feel
@Covers imperfections with light to medium coverage for a smooth even skintone
@Provides sun protection with SPF 4
@Oil free non pore clogging irritant free
I have been using this foundation almost for the last 3 years, almost everytime I have went out. I have always found it as my HG foundation and very difficult to replace with anything else. The liquid foundation is runny in texture and easy to blend.
It usually needs a setting powder for the foundation to stay put all day long. I have used it in sultry summers when the skin feels almost like seeping out all the body fluids all day long. The foundation in such days didn’t wash away or smear with the sweat-nor did it come off on hankys when the face is wiped with them. Also-the texture is indeed so feather light-that it actually gets absorbed like water on skin-and yes-that too in heavily humid summer days. In winters-this becomes a no touch up foundation when topped over a hydrating lotion/moisturiser.
It gives a decent coverage to some acne marks that I have. The finish is flawless -in the sense that the coverage is buildable but the foundation doesn’t look cakey or patchy. It never caused me any breakouts-if I cleansed it away properly. As for the sun protection-I have observed that after months of going out in the sun with this on- my face has not tanned much-and I don’t use a sunscreen. I guess the foundation helps in that way too!
SO to sum up:
1) Easy to blend-when in hurry-I simply blend it with fingers like a moisturizer.
2) Stays all day long even during summer
3) Doesn’t melt in sultry summery weather
4) Gives medium coverage-sufficient for concealing minor acne marks and blemishes
5)Doesn’t break out even on by super breakout prone skin
6) Doesn’t feel uncomfortable or heavy on the skin-even in humid weather
7) Several shades available to choose from. The shade Sand Beige suits my skin tone to the T!
8) Price is reasonable-even with everyday use-the foundation may last for 2 months or more.
1) Availability becomes an issue at times
