Nykaa has become a makeup brand now. It has complete range of products available for us to try and experiment with our makeup and looks. I was hoping for probably the longest time that nykaa launches “Base Products” in their range and yes, my wish was fulfilled!!
Nykaa launched their liquid and cushion foundation. Since I have very dry skin I am more inclined toward liquid foundation and hence I picked Nykaa SKINgenius Scultping and Hydrating foundation to try and test it for you all.
It has been almost a month I have been trying this foundation and here is my take on it.
Comment below if you have also tried the foundation. Which shade are you?

The outer packaging of the foundation is a cardboard box with the usual colored print as in all Nykaa products. Inside the foundation comes in a sleek cream colored plastic bottle with a nozzle which is secured with black screw cap.
The nozzle to take the product out is quite wide and if you squeeze a little hard, it can get messy
Being a sleek bottle with screw cap it is travel friendly.

There are total of 5 shades in the Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting and Hydrating Foundation .
My Shade is 01 Pure Ivory which is a perfect match for my skin.
The foundation is quite thin and runny. It is not greasy and feels like a watery foundation.
Overall thoughts and Rating
The foundation is easily blendable and matched well to my skin tone. It gave me a dewy finish. It gave me a decent coverage but to have a flawless coverage I needed to layer it.
I have a dry skin so they hydrating factor helped in keeping the foundation in place for a good 3-4 hours. However, after a while it made my face look oily and I sweat on my face hence I needed to apply a compact for touchup.
I would give it 3.5/5
