We all love trying out different foundations, BB and CC creams. So here is a newly launched foundation from a brand of our very own country “India”- JOVEES. Jovees is well known for their herbal and Ayurvedic skincare products and now they have entered into makeup too. I have already used their Hair Serum and I loved it. So I was excited to try their makeup too. Today I am going to review Jovees silk foundation *sounds impressive right?* Let’s get started

My experience with JOVEES Silk Foundation
The very first thing that impressed me was its packaging. This silk foundation comes in a beige to brown colored tube with screw type golden cap. This made the entire packaging looks classy. Another impressive thing about this silk foundation is that it has SPF 15 in it *yayy*
How is the consistency and texture?
The consistency of this foundation is neither too thick nor runny. And it is creamy and soft in texture.
How is the coverage and blending power?
So the major thing which I and many of us look for while purchasing a foundation is their coverage. This silk foundation has a very sheer coverage. When worn on the face it gives a finished look but doesn’t cover any blemishes and under eye dark circles. I would tell it is more like a BB cream with light coverage.
Now coming to another important aspect, this silk foundation blended easily on my face. I tried it in the same way as it was instructed that is applied tiny dots and blended with my fingers. But it gave me a patchy look around my nose. Then I took my damp beauty blender and blended in all of those patchy areas. And yes if you have an oily- combination skin like me then do not forget to use a primer prior to this foundation. Because I tried it for the first time without primer and this silk foundation settled into my pores and it was visibly seen. So it didn’t give a poreless finish without primer. If you have a normal skin then this foundation will look great on you.
How is the final look & what is the staying power of JOVEES silk foundation?
As I mentioned this silk foundation is very creamy, it gave me a dewy finish but didn’t cover my spots. I would suggest you to first blend it with fingers and then remove the excess with a damp beauty blender. Because when used directly with the beauty blender the coverage is even lesser than when blended with fingers. And oily skin people need to set it right away with compact or with loose powder else the dewy look will turn into an oily look. If you use compact over this silk foundation the final overall look will be better. Even after setting the foundation with powder, my face turned oily after almost 30 mins. And it stayed in my face hardly for 2 hours. I was happy that it didn’t give any patchy look to my face when it was melting. I have used foundation which turned patchy and looked horrible while melting on my face. So this is something about which I am satisfied. The foundation melted around my T-zone and disappeared after two hours or so. This silk foundation can be very easily washed off with water, hence not waterproof.
This is definitely not suitable for oily skin. If you have normal to dry skin then this JOVESS silk foundation will last longer and will give your face a dewy finish. And last but not the least the formula of this foundation didn’t cause any breakouts on my face.
