Product Review: Lakme Absolut Face Stylist Blush Duos (Pink Blush)

Hello dear readers! ❤

Today I am back with a product review, and it’s from Lakme again 😉

I wanted to try this product since long, so I thought I should review it for you guys too! It is the Lakme Absolut Face Stylist Blush Duos in the Pink Blush shade.

I ordered it from Jabong where it is priced at INR 600/- against the market price of INR 750/- !!

You can order it here 😀

The packaging is nothing fancy, and looks quite compact as seen below. It comes with a small applicator brush which can be travel-friendly only if you carry the whole box 😐

The brush has really fine hair and is smooth to the touch. But quite honestly, I found it too tiny to be held correctly 😦IMG_20151128_130934906

Here comes the blush compact:

Aren’t the colours simply beautiful? 🙂

So here goes the swatch:

Please note that I prepped my hand before applying the blush, so that the color pops. But I realised that the blush is quite pale and requires a number of strokes for the colour to build up.

Also, the texture of the blush product seems silky, almost like talc. But upon application, it feels chalky 😦

First swatch taken inside the house:

Here’s how it looked on me!

I know what you’re thinking – where’s the blush?! 😛

But yes, I am wearing it in this picture. It doesn’t play up well despite a number of applications. And I was afraid to add more strokes as I was beginning to look like a flamingo off-camera 😛

My Verdict:

This isn’t a great purchase. I might use it times of need, but I’d advise you to check out some other options too. Also, it wasn’t very visible on my complexion but it might suit fair ladies 🙂

Until next time,

EveryDay Makeup by Professionals

Hello people! ❤

Today I’m sharing my experience with one of the best and biggest brands of professional makeup – Kryolan.

I visited their Mumbai (Bandra) outlet last week and had a fabulous time!

Kryolan City is a big outlet with a studio and a team of 6 makeup artists, managed by Neetu Ahluwalia. I had a great time chatting with her 😀

We decided that I needed a makeover 😛

This is how I looked before the makeover

We decided on a day party look, with smokey eyes. The makeup artist created a black and bronze smokey look, with delicate pink lips. A black eyeshadow, bronze eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara were used to create this subtle smokey eye. In the next photo, I’m wearing Kryolan’s Ultra Foundation, Face Liner 36, Illusion Highlighter Nappa, Mexico City Eyeshadow Palette and Lipstick LC122.

So this is my makeover! This natural look is great for lunch, shopping, catching up with friends and drinks in the evening 🙂

As you can see, my skin looks FLAWLESS. I have a really oily T-zone and this makeup fixed it! And this is not even full fledged makeup!

A bit about Kryolan – They focus on the science behind makeup products and make light, safe and animal cruelty free makeup! They have a huge range of products for diverse skin types and geography, AND keep updating themselves in keeping with technology. The latest is their HD makeup that I’m wearing 😎
