Our Verdict: Generally, foundations can be quite dry on your skin, so Kay Beauty’s hydrating foundation takes the award as the formula really hydrates your face and gives you a skinlike finish. The consistency of the foundation is creamy, and it provides you a sheer to medium coverage with a natural finish.
The coverage is buildable, but it will not cover very dark areas of your skin, and you might have to use your concealer for that part. Unlike most of the foundations present in the Indian market, the product feels very light on your skin.
After you have done a full face of makeup, The foundation will not give you a complete matte finish, and it will leave a natural touch on your face. The product doesn’t get oxidised as well.
Coming to the packaging factor, the glass bottle is quite sturdy and comes with a tight lid; it’s perfectly travel-friendly. The product takes full marks at the packaging factor.
The price is a little costly compared to other foundations in the Indian market, but foundations, as a product, last for a long time.
Our final verdict is that you can invest in Kay Beauty’s Hydrating Foundation as it does provide what it claims, and the shade range is super inclusive. Well, Kudos to Katrina Kaif for that!
