I am someone who doesn’t wear foundation on daily basis, intact I avoid wearing it as much as I can. The weather in delhi is hot most of the times and makeup either starts melting off or makes me sweaty. Also the feeling of heavy foundation isn’t something I enjoy, so my ideal foundation is always light weight with natural finish. When I heard about Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation , I got curious and to check how hydrating it is, ordered it.
Shade – I couldn’t guess my shade and was sure that warm sand would be light for me. I thought of picking golden honey with it , to mix and get a custom shade. I am happy that both the shades are rich and golden , perfect for indian complexion. Warm sand would be suitable for NC 40-NC 42, golden honey is quite dark and should suit NC 50+.
Texture & Formula – Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation is quite light weight and reminds me of MAC Face & Body foundation. It is less dewy and easy to work with when compared to MAC one. The coverage is sheer and can be built but don’t expect it to cover blemishes and discolouration.
Formula is hydrating and feels comfortable. I don’t see it settling in fine lines or looking cakey. I have to set it with a powder so that it doesn’t transfer or move. This would be not so suitable formula for oily skin though.
I feel this would be perfect everyday foundation. It looks natural, dewy and hydrating.
Staying Power – Since this is a sheer finish dewy foundation , staying power is quite less. On me it stays on for 4-5 hours max.
Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation is priced at Rs 575 available online HERE
If you are looking for a foundation for everyday that doesn’t look cakey or feels heavy then do give Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation a shot. The formula is hydrating and doesn’t settle in fine lines. The downsides with be sheer coverage & low staying power.
