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,

Not Just Beauty

Hello dear readers 🙂

Last time, I shared my makeover with you. Today, I want to share an amazing life-changing beauty product with you.

Some of us have skin problems like vitiligo / leucoderma, acne scars, big birth marks, tattoos or even dark circles that we would like to conceal. What if I told you that I have the solution to your problems? SCX-3200_20150526_13185101 - Copy creme The star of the range is the Dermacolor Camouflage Creme above. The creme works as an amazing concealer and gives great coverage. You can opt for light, medium to full coverage, fully dependent on how YOU use it 😀 IMG_20150528_185428096 After applying the crème, pat it with the Dermacolor Fixing Powder. After the powder, use the Fixing Spray. See the results for yourself! SCX-3200_20150526_13185101 NO Photoshop was used on this picture. Can you believe it? 😮 Dermacolor is THAT GOOD!

There is a huge range of shades available in Derma and suits all skin types from oily to dry – you can easily find your match. This is also a unisex product 🙂

Besides concealing serious imperfections, Derma can be used for everyday makeup as well. Speaking from my makeover experience, I felt that the products were quite light on my skin and felt wearable for every day. derma_chart Also, this range is great value for money. The formula is waterproof and UV shielding, and Kryolan gives good quantity for reasonable price.  For example, the creme costs 350 INR for 4ml and 1500 INR for 15ml. The fixing powder costs just 400 INR for 20g. These will easily last for months!

I must say, Kryolan has impressed me. They produce professional makeup not only for the camera, but also for regular people like me and you ^^’

You can get Dermacolor products at Kryolan City, Shop # 2, Silver Pearl Building, Waterfield Road, Bandra (West), Mumbai (022-26551713).

ALSO, stay tuned for upcoming Giveaways! I will be giving away a Dermacolor fixing powder along with other goodies! Love from Shruti ❤
