REVIEW: Sleek Makeup Blush By 3 in Lace, Swatches & Review


So the last time I visited Vero Moda (that was 2 days ago), the bestie and I were overwhelmed by the sheer amount of lace that was in the store. Everything from sweaters to tops to skirts to dresses to shorts to undies to headbands was either completely made out of lace or had some part in lace...






Now lace is something that I have a love/hate sort of a relationship with... There are times when I completely adore the products of lacemaking and then there are times when I have had enough... However, lately I am in love with laces and it is not just in clothes!

I am hook, line and sinker in love with Sleek Makeup Blush By 3 in Lace!
Remember my Luxola Haul?





Price of Sleek Makeup Blush By 3 Lace Palette:

It costs USD14.99 on the Sleek website.
I got it from Luxola.com for INR 1000/-


It is a palette of 3 beautiful blushes, 2 matte and 1 shimmery, all named after types of laces... Crochet, Guipure and Chantilly... Sounds petty, don't they? :)
They look even prettier...


I am wearing Sleek Makeup Blush in Crochet

This Orange blush is called Crochet and it looks like a pale Orange on medium skintones like mine. It gives a beautiful dimension to one's face. Texture wise, the blush is a little chalky but not so much that will end up being bothersome...

This beautiful shimmery blush is called Guipure and is pretty similar to Sleek Rose Blush, which in turn is a dupe of NARS Orgasm. On the cheek it isn't very shimmery and imparts a beautiful sheen instead of chunky glitter.
Incidentally, Guipure is my favorite type of lace and I think the beauty of the lace is rightly captured in this gorgeous blush



Last but certainly not the least is this delightful pink blush called Chantilly... Its delicate shade of Pink that looks ethereal on one's face. The bestie says it makes me look virginal :P This too is a matte shade, a little chalky in texture but nothing that one cannot live with...

(L-R): Crochet, Guipure, Chantilly

All in all the Sleek blushes have a decent stay tie of about 6-8 hours in an AC environment... In the sun it may last you for 4-6 hours...
Pigmentation wise they are pretty low but the good news is that they are build-able and with 3 layers, you are good to go!

Overall Rating:
9/10

Recommendation:
If you love blushes, especially matte ones and want 3 in the price of 2 drugstore ones, then this surely is something that you must buy!

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…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
