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 :)

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
