The Body Shop Balancing Oil free Foundation shade no 07

Hello pretty ladies!How are you all doing??
Am into a search for the bestest foundation for my skin.So I end up buying so many of them ,that I have Leftovers!!!!
Today I will be reviewing My BODY SHOP  BALANCING OIL FREE FOUNDATION
I have it in shade 07.

The BODY SHOP balancing  Oil free foundation.
A range of innovative lightweight, oil free balancing SPF 15 foundations that provides medium to full coverage for a luxuriously smooth, matte, shine-free and healthy-looking finish. Dermatologically tested.

Size: 30ml

It is available in 10 shades online,though at the store I saw only 7 ..







PRICE 1045 INR,but I got it for Rs 845 INR

My experience with the product..
This comes in a plastic box with a pump
I loove this foundation...absolutely.
I have oily combination skin,which becomes oily slick in mumbai summers.This product is a great matte effect foundation.IT controls oiliness..and gives a glow to the face....not dewy though.
The coverage is sheer to medium.
It does not give a cakey look when applied.
also It does not flake or give me patchy skin(although I make sure to moisturize really well).
When I apply it with loose powder,(TBS loose powder),It settles down and  gives a very nice glow!!

The lasting power is good  ,around 6-7 hours on a humid day in AC...In a non AC environment,I do need a touch up/blot ups after 4 hours!!
It does not oxidise on me.

PROS
Plastic bottle(though it s a pro for me,its a known fact that glass bottles keep foundations better.
good coverage.
goes on well blends well...i use my brush or fingers
good oil control.
matte finish(you can combine this with a shimmery blush /highlighter for a dewy cheek look..).
lasts fairly well.
does not oxidise
Many shades available,so easy to find one that matches you
Reasonable (tho  not cheap).

CONS:
none as per me...
What is your Holy grail foundation????tell me!!!

Well, most people hate it, but I so love my lakme 9to5. The blending is super tricky, but if you can manage that its worth the pain
