Lotus Herbals PureStay Foundation in Hazelnut Star – Review and Swatches

This is an old foundation, I know gals. But sometimes, we take some products so for granted that we just use & use them and forget to share our thoughts on them ….. Hai na!!
Now, this Lotus Herbals PureStay range and specially this foundation have become so revolutionary that I think almost all those, who are into drugstore brands, have at least once tried this foundation. I am also sharing my views on this foundation with you all today!!

Packaging –
Comes in a glass bottle with a cute glossy pink cap and has a pump type dispenser. When I got this foundation, I was so excited to use this due to its cute bottle and dispenser and it was quite tempting too, until the bottle became half. After that it became tough to use or finish it. I have to open the bottle every time and take it out using fingers L
Also, a big drawback is that the bottle doesn’t have any cap. That makes it so travel unfriendly and unhygienic too.

Texture and Application –
It is liquidy creamy in texture and easy to spread and blend on face and neck. What I like in this foundation is that it doesn’t take anytime in spreading and blending. You simply apply it like a cream and ready to go. No harsh lines, no white patches.

My verdict on PureStay foundation –
What I like most about this is its easy and clean application, its spreads so smoothly. I personal don’t use it much but I have kept it for my mum as she doesn’t have the patience to give five minutes for preparing her face, like a canvas ;). It works good on her. The shade is also the good match – hazelnut star but what attracted me to buy this one is  what I dislike most today- its pump dispenser which doesn’t work at all while there is more that 25 % product still remaining in the bottle.

This foundation is fine and easy to use and hence recommended for those who are not so good at blending and merging and are always short of time. It is also good for those who don’t prefer heavy or full coverage and just prefer an even toned complexion. Personally I don’t like it much and won’t re-purchase it J
