Hi guys, todays post is on Lotus Herbals Purestay foundation Review.
I know im writing a post after a long time, due to my busy schedule. But im back with a bang.
So moving back to the review, lets have a look at some product specifications.

My view on Lotus Herbals Purestay Foundation:
The shade I got was Hazelnut star.
My skin type is medium, combination and breakout prone.
Almost any product I use on my skin, gives me breakouts.
I guess my skin loves to be naked.
Coming back to the shade, Hazelnut star suits most Indian skin tones.
The foundation that I was using before this was Lakme 9 to 5 foundation in Shade Shell.
Even though I have combination skin, I still found the Lakme one too powdery and difficult to blend without a moisturiser.
Also it looked ghostly white in photos and in person.
But the Lotus Hazelnut is quite similar to the Lakme shell shade.
Lotus Herbals Purestay foundation is blend-able.
I find it easier to blend on moisturized skin, But blends well on non-moisturized skin as well.
The finish is not matte or dewy but semi-matte or satiny is what I can say.
This foundation does not streak at all and can give an air-brushed look when applied with a brush.
When applied over moisturizer, the staying power decreases, if powder is not used.
I generally skip the powder because I mostly use this foundation when I’m indoors in an AC environment.
So when i applied it with moisturizer it stayed matte for about 2 hours.
And without moisturizer, it stayed intact for a good 5 hours.
I would say if you want to use a moisturizer, use powder to set your make-up base.
The coverage is medium to heavy which is build able.
The best part about this foundation is that the shade is so close to my exact skin tone.
I’m someone who’s never found the skin tone match in any other foundations that I’ve tried till date.
Now you know why I’m so impressed with this foundation.
Another thing i like about it, is that it blends really well.
Does not oxidize or change color.
Feels light on skin, non-cakey, non-streaky.
medium to heavy coverage
Breaks me out, even though it claims to be oil free & non pore clogging.
Dispenser nozzle exposed to bacteria & dirt with no cap.
Non- travel friendly, as the dispenser nozzle cannot be locked & has no cap.
Bit Expensive for an introductory product.
