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


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 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:

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 & 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…
