Let me shed some "real" light on this product. This foundation has yellow undertones/golden/olive which is why it made to suit asian and south asian women. It is oil free, doesnt have harsh chemicals, has a semi dewy natural matte skin finish, kind of a better layer of skin, for people like me who are combination oily and oily, you will need a good matte primer or good setting powder but the stay power is indeed amazing. It has medium to buildable full coverage it is no where near sheer. V2 is MAC NC20, v4 MAC NC30, v6 is MAC NC35 and so on... comes in a tube with a brush applicator, it will leak if u dont keep the tube will lid facing up. I apply two layers for a full coverage and dab on a tiny bit on my scars or i use mac studio finish concealer on my scars with one layer of this foundation, it looks flawless! It lasts 6 months trust ne its alot of product in a itsy bitsy tube! You will love it!

It's alright, nothing super special about it. Decent coverage without flaking. Slightly expensive for coverup (I got it for like $18). Packaging is very messy, I always get product leaking out from the lid!

This is the first foundation that I've ever used and I gotta say I'm so happy with my purchase. The lady at Shoppers really helped me find my perfect shade and I'm so grateful. The foundation comes in a tube (only downfall). The consistency however is quite thin but when you apply it, it comes off very natural and sheer. It hides all my discoloration and leaves my skin flawless and glowy. This foundation is geared towards women of the South Asian heritage and works great on me. The staying power is quite decent and is easily blendable.

After a while of buying foudations that ended up not suiting my skin color (have indian skin) I stumbled on to Vasanti's products. They weren't as affordable as other drugstore products, but far cheaper than higher end MAC and Sephora makeup. Which is fine with me, since finding foundations that have my skin colour is like finding gold on an enormous island.
First of all, you can tell that Vasanti is trying to do something very different from other makeup brands...and you can tell this from the packaging. (Liquid cover up comes in a tube with a brush applicator, and I am also in V8). Although I am a 'pump' kind of girl, the packaging of this really isn't so bad.
As for the final product, this makeup looks like a second skin, it is very natural while at the same time offers medium to building higher coverage. It is very sheer, but after a while of using this product it kind of annoys me about how sheer this product is. This is a big no no if you are a person that has oily skin, (I have oily combination skin around the T-Zone). Although the product has no harsh chemicals and does not contain oil it is very sheer (even when used with the Face Base Powder) so beware. A good matte primer would probably help, and I am yet to pair it with a primer.
As for a final review on this product, Vasanti has hit the mark when catering to different skin tones especially coloured skin tones. The packaging is different but I don't exactly 'love it'. Also I think they would go really far in creating a Matte foundation, one that preferably comes in a 'pump-cap' bottle. I like that their foundation does not have harsh chemicals, and does not come out ashy on the skin. I would recommend it, but people with oily skin should beware and maybe invest in a good matte primer when using this product. All in all, it is the only foundation so far (drugstore wise) that appeals to me and is affordable; more so than higher end makeup brands. I would prefer something more matte, but until I find an alternative I will stick to this.
UPDATE -> I will not be repurchasing this product it makes me way too oily without a primer.

This foundation is oil-free but will still ruin your face if you have sensitive, combo skin. For a liquid foundation it looks cakey when you try to get more coverage. As a brand which targets women of colour I was surprised that the V12 still wasn't yellow enough for my skin. My face looked like it was a different colour because the foundation completely erased my undertone.
Not worth the price, wasn't much different than a drugstore brand.

The product is in a tube with an applicator brush built into the lid, which makes it easy to apply and use. I started using this product about 3 years ago, I started using it because a make up artist used it on me for my engagement photo shoot. The product is amazing, the coverage masks dark circles and uneven skin tones. A little goes a long way. Pair it with the Face Base foundation powder and the product is especially long lasting. I'm able to to look polished and finished from 9-6 while still looking fresh.
I am Indian, from the North and have what you would call a 'wheatish' complexion with a golden undertone, so I wear V4. I recently got back from Florida and have a tan, and the coverage still suits my complexion and does not look cakey, or feel heavy in anyway

Smooth finish. Buildable coverage. Better than my Mac nc 44. I wear a mix of shades 06 and 08 to get that perfect finish
I've used MANY MANY products and being of Indian ethnicity, it is nice to finally have a foundation that matches my skin. I look like I am not wearing foundation. It doesn't cake up or crease. If you have dark circles and acne marks like I do, be sure to pick up their concealer!
CON: I really dislike the brush applicator for this product, I think it is unsanitary.

I initially bought this to use as an undereye concealer. Well, I didn't find that it worked the greatest for that, as I found it somewhat moisturizing and found that my eye makeup would run into it. I used this recently as a foundation and was really impressed. First of all, I thought the coverage would be sheer but it was so easy to apply and looked beautifully flawless within seconds (I don't have much to cover mind you) I'm not sure how this would work for someone with lots to cover up but I thought it looked great. The finish is satin-matte, looks like healthy skin. I will update if it gives me any issues.

I have to change my review. This is actually a pretty good foundation. It CAN look cakey lickety split so be sure to use the minimum amount possible. It has a slight satin finish.

This is a really great foundation and it's buildable so it's possibly to get anywhere between a medium to full coverage look. It is fairly good at concealing, but I used a separate concealer for my undereye circles. Using the Vasanti corrector with this foundation is amazing and this gave me a flawless look.
I'm not a huge fan of the packaging as the product would build up under the lid and become really messy. After a bit of use though this problem ceased. At first I didn't like having the brush as I would have preferred a squeeze tube, but as I started running low the brush really helped to get all the product that was displaced in the corners.
I have repurchased this foundation and it's my go-to foundation for everyday use.
