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!!!!
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.

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).

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
