A decent sheer coverage foundation

It offers a sheer coverage and the consistency is very runny, it's water-based.
The finish is dewy. It comes in a plastic container and doesn't have a pump. It has a narrow opening and you have to squeeze the product out of that.

It is priced decently but I prefer medium coverage foundation. It lasts for 4-5 hours with setting powder on top.
Didn't break me out but I don't have very sensitive skin, either.
I apply it with a brush, since it's very runny so the sponge soaks up a lot of product.

Hii guys ????....

The foundation is very thin and literally flows on skin if you put a drop just to test. Which also means this product goes on thin.

There are total of 5 shades.

How I use and staying power: To apply, you can simply take a small amount of the foundation on the back of your hands and apply it on your skin using a foundation buffing brush or a beauty blender. You can also use your finger tips if you are comfortable.

My Experience:
Feels great on the skin and can last for about 4-5 hours After which some powdering required as it can get oily. The part where it perfectly adapts to your skin tone is 100% true. Leaves you with perfectly even-tone skin and doesn't feel cakey at all. Blends easily with both a brush or a beauty blender. Medium coverage that can be built up.

*Blends Easily

Daily wear foundation

I purchased this foundation in the shade 04 True Tan. I use Maybelline Fit Me in 310 in Sun Beige which suits me perfectly. This foundation however was bit dark for my skin tone. But as the product claims, it does adapt to my skin tone pretty well without looking too dark. The foundation is liquid is consistancy and applies best using fingers/brush. It gives a dewy finish and would be perfect for dry skin types. Even to my combination skin, once set with powder, it lasts for quite a while. The main thing which I like about this foundation is, it suits my sensitive acne prone skin. I didn't get any breakouts while using this.

The packaging is really travel safe and light-weight enough to carry in your purse. This contains Hyaluronic acid which is a natural skin plumper.

The coverage of this foundation is sheer to medium. It will not cover acne-spots or hyperpigmentation. But for everyday use, this does the job well. It retails for 575 and available online on Nykaa and offline at Nykaa outlets.

Overall, I recommend this as an everyday wear sheer coverage foundation.

Your foundation woes end here!

The Nykaa skin genius foundation is everything a good foundation should be.

Starting with the best, it has color adapting properties, which means you can not go wrong with the shade. (Which happens to the best online shoppers too) I have it in the shade almond which has yellow undertones, but it adapts to my lighter neck, and saves me the hassle of buying two separate foundations.

The finish is dewy, and the coverage is medium to buildable. It doesn't get flaky or moves around!
It doesn't cling to the dry patches.

It works best with a beauty blender.
My only concern is the packaging, wishing only if there was a pump!!
None the less, it is travel friendly in an almost tube/bottle packaging with a sturdy cap.
The hole in the tube, dispenses good amount of product that can bd controlled by the pressure you apply to get the product out.

It is worth the money! And is honestly a must buy!!

SHELF LIFE- 29 months

Price of Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation is Rs.575/- for 30 ml

Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation comes inside a sleek, plastic bottle with a black colored screw open cap on top. The bottle also works like a squeeze tube and the foundation comes out through a small hole. You can easily control the amount of product coming out. The shade name and number is also mentioned on the bottle along with other product details. There is an outer packaging as well. Overall, no issue with packaging at all. Its decent and sturdy and the lightweight tube is also ideal to be carried along while travelling.

Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation has runny consistency, but I won’t say it is completely liquid. It’s something in between too liquidy and too thick. The foundation has a mild smell, which doesn’t last more than a minute or two.
The foundation is easy to blend into the skin, due to its semi-liquid consistency. It feels very lightweight on the skin. Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation gives a dewy finish to the skin. In fact it is more suitable for those with normal to dry skin. For oily skin, setting with a matte compact is must. And those with combination skin need to apply compact onto the T-Zone.
This Nykaa foundation has sheer to medium coverage. It gives an even look to the skin, if there is not much of a pigmentation issue. Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation covers light marks, but not the darker ones. It is more like a daily use moisturizer that also gives a glowing and slightly even toned look to the skin.
Moving onto its much hyped about color adapting property, I would say you have to wait for 10-12 minutes to see this effect, in case you pick up a shade lighter or darker than your skin tone. Due to the Hyaluronic Acid content, this foundation doesn’t cling to the dry patches, but it does feel a bit sticky immediately after application. Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation stays on my combination skin for good 6-7 hours without wearing off. However, it starts making the skin oily after 3-4 hours.

* Sturdy packaging
* Lightweight foundation
* Easy to blend
* Paraben free
* Contains Hyaluronic acid
* Comes with color-changing technology
* Comfortable to wear
* Good staying power
* Sets into dewy finish
* Doesn’t accentuate the dry patches
* Evens out complexion
* Also adds a glow to the face
* Budget friendly price

* Not a full coverage foundation
* Cannot hide dark spots and blemishes
* Makes skin oily after 3-4 hours if you have oily and/or combination skin

It is easily available Online at Nykaa.

Skin adapting foundation

Hi everyone, this time the review is on Nykaa skin genius foundation. The foundation has a skin adapting technology that means the foundation adapts to your skin tone after 5-10 mins.
The foundation gives medium to full coverage. The foundation has hyaluronic acid and Polylift for a naturally radiant look. This is a water based foundation. However the finish is first dewy but then it gives a perfect matte look. The foundation almost hides acne scars and pigmented area.
The packaging is somewhat dissapointed. It would be much better if it had pump packaging. There is an excess loss of product when you squeez the pack. The pack is of plastic material. It is travel friendly.
My experience with the product is that it gives me a very natural look. It didn't caused me any break out. The shade is also perfect for me. My shade is Warm sand.

The price is a bit high Rs 525/- for 30ml but this is really good product. And I will definitely buy again once I am over with it.

Good Option for Dry Skin People

The Nykaa Skingenius Foundation comes in a sleek plastic bottle with a nosel to dispense the foundation. the packaging is very light weight and travel friendly. the foundation comes in a liquid form which is quite runny. it gives light to medium coverage with a natural look. the foundation is well suited for normal to dry skin people as its not a matte finish foundation. it gives a dewy finish. so if you want an everyday wear foundation with dewy finish then this is a good option. oily skin people like me can set it with a compact powder if you don't want dewy finish. its a very good option for winters as well wherein oily skin also gets dry and need a semi matte or dewy finish foundation. i m in the shade 03 warm sand that suites me perfectly coz of its color adapting formula. initially i was not liking this foundation that much because in summers it feels so sticky and tacky on my oily skin but as far as we are stepping into winters i m quite liking it and using it so often. i apply it with a buffing brush for better coverage. i must say that the lasting power of this foundation is not that great. it lasts up to 4-5 hrs only on my skin and after that it starts fading and crumbling on certain areas of my face. so you better set it a powder if your t-zone is really oily. over all for rs 575/- its a good buy.

-It comes in a compact packaging and the bonus is that there is a mirror and applicator provided.
-I absolutely loved the formulation of this compact powder , it applies like butter and is very blendable
-it can be build up eventually
-It is medium coverage
-I heard that it has colour adapting property which I really can't comment on because I got it in a shade which matches me
-it aided in making my makeup last for a longer time as I use it to set my makeup
