REVIEW: Bourjois Cendre De Brune Blush



Review of Bourjois Blush in Cendre De Brune

Guest Post By: Pranali

A Round domed baked blush enclosed in a fat round pot, with a tiny mirror above. If there were any words to describe this blush, I think cuteness will top the list.
I was in search of a Pink Bush that would suit Indian skintones. And I found this Dusty or Mauvish Pink Color. The Color is as Pink to Indian skintone as Bubblegum Pink is to white skin.
The Packaging is decent and travel friendly, though the brush and mirror is of no use. Baked Blushes are of high intensity and can be used wet and dry. And the best part about this blush is, it makes a wonderful cheek tint which looks as good as natural flush. For Richer Skintones, using wet  will add more intensity to the color, make it appropriate Pink for rich skintones. I went a little weird and applied it as a Lip tint as well, topped with salve. But it only adds tint to the lips, naturally.
There is little fall out when the brush frictionally touches the dome, but it blends effortlessly. And the result is No powdery look.

The staying power is not so great, 4 hours and it is done. But if used wet it is not more than 5 hours.
It has a baby powder fragrance to it, which is very pleasant. I have been using it for long, maybe a year or more. I am using it almost once a week, for natural looks, No makeup looks. And the shape of the dome is intact though a little flat.

Price of Bourjois Cendre De Brune Blush

INR 575/-, when I bought it back in 2012.

The Goods of Bourjois Cendre De Brune Blush

1) A Pink for Indian Skintone
2) No Powdery business. It totally adapt with the skin texture without looking powdery.
3) Packaging is a show, for all the flaunters.
4) Pleasant floral fragrance
5) Decent staying power of 4 hours.
6) Calculating its value, I think it is  amazing for the quality and quantity.

The Bad of Bourjois Cendre De Brune Blush

1) The provided brush is of no use for blush.
2) Availability across all Bourjois Counters.
3) The blush hardens with time. So it is necessary to scrape off the surface to reveal new layer.

A Dusty Pink for Healthy Flush, for Indian Skintones. If you are looking for The Pink, seek no more. This will work wonders with Wheatish to Medium skintones.

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 & 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.

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…
