REVIEW & LOTD: Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush in Floral Fucsia

They say earlier when make-up wasn't really a way of life, girls pinched their cheeks to bring that "blush" to their cheeks. But alas that never works for me. However hard I pinch myself I can never get that "virginal blush" on my face. But why should I lose out I ask myself and hence get myself a "blush" that gives me the just-pinched blush and better still, it stays on me for a much longer time :D So take that :P

Ladies and Gentlemen welcome the newest kid on my "blush block", Colorbar's Cheek Illusion Blush in Floral Fuscia :) Colorbar has changed the packaging of its blushes and also introduced a few new shades :) The packaging thus has become more striking and blingey :) Not that I am complaining ;) Floral Fuscia though looks quite muted like its older cousins Plum Brown and Just Earth, but on the cheeks it truly imparts a rosy blush that would suit especially warmer skintones :) While applying these blushes you will also notice that Colorbar has changed the texture as well and these are much lighter and powdery than their older cousins :) I took a couple of trials to get used to it cause they wuld fly all over the place but now am quite a pro at it ;) 

Floral Fuscia tends to make me look all sun tanned and quite exotic (I like to believe that :P). Ha ha I guess what I wanna say is that it totally transforms my look and makes me look like I am enjoying my Summers a bit too much ;) They really are little pieces of gems I have realised :)

Oooohhss And Aaahhhsss!!!
1. The shade no doubt is gorgeous.
2. I love the lighter powdery texture of these new blushes
3. They stay on for like ever! Minimum 8 hours guaranteed!
4. The packaging is way prettier than before!
5. They do not cause any reactions or allergies

Ouches!!!
1. Colorbar has increased the prices of its blushes :(
2. At first you might find it a bit too powdery
3. The brush that comes with it still still quite useless.

Price
I seriously don't remember how much I got it for but I guess it was for Rs.590/-

Repurchase?
Definitely! I like the newer texture better than the older ones :)

Would I Recommend?
You go girl! Go get yourself at least one shade :) I guarantee that you'll love them :)

Overall Rating:
9/10

    1. haha yeah they have doubled the prices and I guess thats cause of the change in texture.. abhi they ve made these blushes much lighter and hence they can be used for light as well as pigmented blush coverage :)
      this is very different from Plum Brown cause Plum Brown was more "earthy" and very subtle. This isn't neutral. It shows on your cheeks and a gives subtle rosy blush :)

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
