Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse vs Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation Comparison,Review

Hiee everyone...,

New launches everywhere this year and if they target something new then they are definitely my pick.Recently Lakme launched its new weightless mousse foundation which was actually nothing very new because we have already been acquainted with Absolute mattreal mousse ages before.But still I took a step ahead to try its new version because mattreal mousse is something I do not wear regularly so I wanted a daily wear kind of a foundation.To know what differs both of them please keep on reading.

Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse vs Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation
Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse and  Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation



Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse Foundation
Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation
Price
Rs 700 for 25 g
Rs 575 for 29 g
Claims
Feather light texture with a mousse to a powder finish for breathable natural skin.Lasts upto 16 hours
It is a lightweight foundation meant for everyday use and is so lightweight that you won’t  even feel you are wearing foundation .It not only blends in effortlessly, but gives a matte finish that lasts through the day.
Packaging
A small tub with a silver mirrored reflective surface and is convenient to carry. Looks cute but dipping fingers each time you apply the foundation is unhygienic. Anyways it is different of its own kind.
In this kind of a packaging you end up using even the last bit of the product
A simple gold rose tube packaging and nothing fancy but is travel friendly.
In this kind of a packaging you may end up wasting some product which gets sticked on the inner walls of the tube.
Texture
Light weight ,smooth, easily blendable feather texture and glides like a dream.
Feels like nothing is on the skin.
The texture is similar to that of Mattreal mousse .(atleast I couldn’t find a single difference)
Finish
Matte powdery finish
Enhances dry patches and uneven skin texture even after scrubbing and moisturizing in winters only.
Matte powdery finish
Enhances dry patches and uneven skin texture badly no matter how much I scrub and moisturize my face.(yet to test it for summers)
Coverage
Medium and evens out skin tone
Blurs my large pores a little bit
Sheer to Medium and evens out skin tone little bit
Blurs my large pores a little bit
Ingredients
Not Mentioned
Not Mentioned
Allergy
Causes breakouts as I have a very-yy sensitive skin
Haven’t caused yet maybe because of winters
Longevity
Lasts for like 5-6 hours atleast because that is my maximum wear time till now.
Lasting power is not very great. Its effect lasts for like 2-3 hours maximum in winters so in summers that would probably be less.
Oil Control
I have an extremel-yyyy oily skin and it offers me oil control for 2-3 hours maximum. In summers I always use a compact after this.
In winters itself it offers an oil control for an hour only without any compact.
Recommendation and tips
For party purposes when you need to look fresh for a longer time or daily wear if you feel like.
Only for daily use because of low staying power.
Use blotting tissue at intervals to make you look fresh instantly
My ratings
4.2/5
4/5

Note:Shade Golden Medium of Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse and 04 Rose Honey of Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation are similar.

Overall I would say that Weightless Mousse foundation is best suited if you have normal-oily , even skin texture because otherwise you might need to scrub and heavily moisturize your skin.For summers this might be a good option as a daily wear foundation for normal to oily skin type.

Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse has a better longevity and coverage but the difference between the two is not that great.The texture is really very smooth , light weight and silky but I wish the ingredient list was also accessible to us.

Moreover latter has spf 8 while the former(9 to 5 ) doesn't have.

Do share your views on both of these foundations if you have tried them.Am I the only one to feel these similarities.Would love to read your opinions also.Thanks for reading and follow me on all my social media's to keep yourself updated.Take Care.
