Today I am going to review Essence soft and natural makeupn shade Light Caremel. Actually I was having some Essence makeup which I bought it from Germany. Yes Essence is a German brand and it is like their day to day brand. Very affordable and cheap with good quality. So when I saw nykaa and flipkart are selling essence products I thought why not to review it. Also read somewhere that some cities are having Essence counter/shops in te mall and other area.

What I think about it –
First word that came to mind when I think of this foundation is affordable and cheap. It has soft liquid texture which is not too runny or thick. I would say this is a low coverage foundation which can be built upto medium coverage. Foundation looks really natural on your face as name suggested. It is matte finish foundation will stay good for 5 to 6 hours. After that I think it starts to rub of. It is easily blendable soft to touch foundation very good for day to day usage. It has very light smell which will not stay for long time.
AS you can see It as not covered my acne marks but given me good natural look. It its a very good option for people with no or less problems as it is very natural.
You might need to apply moisturizer before it as it is matte finish. Very good option to wear daily.
1) Cheap affordable very good for daily wear
2) Light weight and natural
3) Matte finish stays upto 5 to 6 hours
4) Didn’t broke me out. It said dermatological tested. Which is a plus for me.
1) Availability is an issue.
2) Shades are very limited for Indian skin tone.
Rating 4 out 5
Do I recommend it
I think you should try it. If it suits you in all respect then it will be a very good option.
Will I repurchase it
Actually no. Because for my skin tone I didn’t found a perfect match. Light caramel shade is way too dark and pink and other sades are white. For daily wear I like lakme absolute mattreal mousse.
