My View

If you are blessed with a blemish and dark spots free skin, then this product does wonders for you. I use it when I go outing with family and friends since these are the times when you do not require full coverage instead you choose a product that works decent and feels feather-light when applied on your face. Hence, Lakme 9 To 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation works well for me as it gives medium coverage which makes the skin look natural. Here are some Pros and Cons of the foundation based on my experience.
