Hey ladies,
Am back after a long break and am going to be reviewing  the Chambor Foundation wet and dry,which I had purchased around 20 days ago!
Summers a re here and in <Mumbai,,,are they BAD!!! I was finding my MAC satinfinish  a tad too heavy and shiny for the day....So went to buy a compact .At The chambor counter ended up seeing this product and loving it..Tried it and loved it.......
Here is a look
the product is yellower than this in real life!!!!!Looks very pinkish here!!r

What the company claims:
Velvety rich powder foundation which gives a the skin a sophisticated look.
Its a Foundation with Whitening action & finish. 
Its main USP is the Dual Usage .
dry sponge for moist & natural finish and wet sponge for matte & covering finish
  • Enriched with Vitamin A, C, E & SPF 12
  • Imparts whitening action
  • Helps reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture
  • Natural Make up
  • Has soft application feel
  • Water resistant � Long Lasting
  • Non Comedogenic
  • No animal ingredients
  • Dermatologist & Ophthalmologist Tested
  • Shades available 
  1. dual cashew101
  2. Dual walnut 103
there is a  no 102 also which was not available with my SA so don't know the name. :(
Made My Wallet Lighter By: 925 INR for 15 gm of product
The product: It comes in a rectangular  navy blue box which opens to reveal the powder foundation in a compartment with the sponge in the adjacent one.There is a mirror in the lid( which I LOVEEEEEEEEE)...
 I brought the shade Walnut 103 , the cashew looked too white on me although it would look lovely on fairer skin tones.

  • The powder foundation can be used dry for a sheer natural look.When I did that the coverage was minimal but it had good oil control.

  • I also used it over my MAC satinfinish and was amazed by the shine control(without too much of a matte look),oil control and the pretty semi matte finish I got>It was amazing
  • I also tried it by moistening the sponge a bit .The application then goes on thick and gives decent coverage,but it makes the face look very matte and chalky
SO I now use it only as  dry powder either over my moisturizer and primer , or over my satinfiish foundation.

This is an amazing product in terms of lasting.When used dry alone or with MAC satinfinish it makes my makeup stay on for at least 8-10 hours in the sweltering heat of mumbai....lovve it.....

What I Love
  • the shade suits my complexion to the T.Am a nc 42-43 in MAC.
  • It is long lasting
  • No fragrance
  • Love the mirror
  • Can be used alone as well as a compact over foundation.( I use it both ways)
  • small effective sponge comes along with the powder.
  • Can also be appiled as a loose powder with a brush.
  • very compact and travel friendly.
What I don't Love
  • When used without a moisturizer it does look chalky.So for those with very dry skin, a lot of moisturizer may be needed or they might have to use it as a wet foundation.
  • limited shades.
  • Pricey!!!!
  • Also if used with a heavy hand may look OTT.

Will I repurchase :::YES!!!!
RATING:5/5 from me.....Yes  I do love it....

Do you guys have this product????? If not try it out.....Its good!!!!!
