REVIEW: Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush in Day Sheer

Review of Lakme Absolute's Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush In Day Sheer

I am not a blush person per se. Don't get me wrong, I do use a blush and I totally realize its power in making or breaking a look. However, give me one blush that I can spend my whole life with it and not even feel the need to get myself another one until I actually hit pan with the one that I am using.
Yes! I always finish my blush before I purchase another and I know many of you will just gasp at it with disbelief... So let me just reiterate, I am not really a blush person per se.

So I was at a loss when I was provided with a sample of Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush and I was almost ready to give it away to someone. Then the diwali bug bit me and I just couldn't help but dig into the sheer Orangey blush resplendent with tiny golden shimmer particles. So much so that I have regularly reaching out to this beauty the entire two weeks I have been on vacation...
It is a gorgeous shimmery blush that would suit festive occasions and would look ethereal on fair skin tones and downright sexy on medium and tan skintones.

Sadly, I will now have to stash it away and go back to my favorite muted, neutral and matte blush as I resume with office this week... Needless to say, this blush isn't apt for work especially in corporate environments but then of course there is no stopping you if you are feeling uncharacteristically brave one day...

If you are looking for a gorgeous shimmery blush to wear for your friend's wedding or to that New Year's Eve party, you might want to give this a shot!

The pink dupatta that I am wearing in the picture is a part of the phulkari collection I have sourced from Patiala for HOI. For more information click HERE


  1. The dupatta looks great... you should keep this one :p

    this blush has the capacity to look muddy! oh and on the blush thingie, same pinch! have been using my one borjois one for the last 2 years now :D

    1. Gah! I wish I could! but I promised the pati that I wouldn't buy anything from HOI for the next 2 months :(
      Muddy? No ya... the blush is pretty sheer to look muddy... But have you experienced otherwise?

  2. It looks like a yummy crisp chocolate cookie in that second pic! Guess they don't call it baked for nothing... :D Love all the pics!

    1. Marianne you have a superb way with words!!! ab=nd yup Baked Chocolate cookie is exactly how I would describe it too ;) yum yum yum ♥

  3. all phulkari dupattas I wan are sold out

    1. awww which ones were you eyeing sweetheart? There still are a lot more in stock btw :)

  4. beautiful shade and the last pic of urs is just awesome!

  5. I'm like you..not much of a blush person. Of course, you've got great cheekbones so you dont even need to use blush :) This shade is really pretty though and great for the festive season and weddings.

    1. OMG thank you for the compliment Doll! And Hi5 for being similar where blushes are concerned! :)

  10. And I thought only I was the one who was not a blush person... And here I find my stock :) But no doubt it looks super on ur super sexy cheekbones...
    And yes, the dupatta looks awesome... maybe u shud try teaming it up wth a paraandi and big jhumkas... making a true punjabi kudi... :)

  11. Hey sweetie,I have seen ur blog so many times before but never loved so much as today itself as u were the only one blogger who puts up the most clearer pictures, zoomed up at their best & close to their original colour and texture, i can't define how u have helped in deciding so many products..i dont want to mention the name of another blogger who looks quite pretty but she forgets and never put right color of any lipstick which is the main emphasized part of her blog , all her foundation , blush ,lipsticks differs in a marginal way & u cant even predict where she is wearing a different product...seriously i truly admire ur way of representation in a true way........

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: 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…

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.
