Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting and Hydrating Foundation – Review

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.

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




  1. I don’t wear foundation often so I appreciate the honesty of your review and will keep it in mind next time I’m out buying more.

  2. Nykaa is very popular in India. They started as online website for buying beauty products under one roof. Later started with their own product line

  3. I like your end notes on the foundation. I have super dry skin and find that most foundations are great for the first couple hours and then I look terrible. This sounds like it would be great for a date night!

  4. This is the first time I’m hearing of Nykaa. Perhaps it hasn’t reached these shores yet! I try not to wear foundation in the winter TBH because I slather tons of moisturizer on my face I feel like any makeup would slide right off lol. Nice to hear this foundation has a hydrating feature.

  5. This sounds like a wonderful product and I would like to give it a try. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us.

  6. I honestly don’t wear any foundation but this is a great review. I like how unbiased your writing is, acknowledging the good and not so good. I am going to tell my friends about this product and should I ever choose a foundation, I’m going to remember what you said here.
