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 πŸ˜‰

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 JabongΒ where it is priced at INR 600/- against the market price of INR 750/- !!

You can order it here πŸ˜€

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? πŸ™‚

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 😦

Here’s how it looked on me!

I know what you’re thinking – where’s the blush?! πŸ˜›

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

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 πŸ™‚

Until next time,

This is again, a thrifted dress πŸ˜€ (Gosh, I love thrifted stuff). I paired the dress with heels and a clutch-cum-sling bag!

This lovely dress is very simple and yet, very striking! So I kept the look very clean and minimalist, without any bling πŸ™‚

Since this shift dress is colorful, I decided to play up one color, that is, blue. I got these blue wedges from Pune (FC Road, I think!) and the chic blue sling-cum-clutch from Jabong.

I opted for black winged eyeliner and bright pink lips, and my Tissot watch and tiny black ear studs completed the look!
