Maybelline Blush Studio Cheeky Glow in Peachy Sweetie Review and Swatches!

Maybelline Blush Studio Cheeky Glow in Peachy Sweetie Review and Swatches!

ISLM Writer: Ishleen

Hello my angels!
How is everyone doing? Remember, how last week our darling Santa (read Samyukta) sent across a bag full of goodies for me to devour? Yes, I still was trying to get over that overwhelming happiness when she called up today and gave me more good news! Guess what? My bae is finally coming to meet me! And as Sam says, when we are in a good mood, we feel good about the products we are about to review! Maybe she is right, because I most definitely am in love with this little baby blush I am in for reviewing today!

What does Maybelline have to say?

For cheeks that glow with a natural finish:
• Ultra light weight, silky, blendable powders.
• Meet the new blush on the block. So Silky and Smooth, it blends flawlessly for the most natural finish.
• Soft texture for a natural hue.
• Easily blends with your skin colour.
• Comes with three fresh colours for your pretty skin: Creamy Cinnamon, Fresh Coral and Peachy Sweetie

More quantity for lesser price? Yes, please!

250 bucks for 7 heaping grams of product? Are you kidding me? We do not even get a decent lipstick in the 250 tag these days and here is our beloved Maybelline selling across gorgeous blushes in this cheap a price range! More power to you Maybelline!


How well has Maybelline worked on the packaging?

Small price tag, small compact, and not to forget, a super cute packaging is what Maybelline has to offer to us with the blush studio range of cheeky glow blushes! Though the blushes do not come with any mirror or an applicator or something, but at 250 bucks, I wasn’t even expecting one! However cute might the packaging may look, we have to agree that it is a bit flimsy and will break off if you let this baby fall even from the slightest of heights! Plus, the dome shaped product in the pan makes things no easier for the fidgety ones!

Is Peachy Sweetie really sweet?

I always wanted a nice cool peachy pink sort of shade to sit in my vanity, as I am done buying warm toned blushes and want to experiment so much with new variants in the market! And this baby right here is just a perfect (not too cool not to warm) shade of peachy hued pink with such subtle silver shimmers, which do not come up as shimmer, but as a nice dewy glow on the skin! Love the shade! It looks really natural and gives a healthy flushed look to the face!

How well does it stay and is it pigmented enough?

I mean I generally do not expect much wow from my cheaper products; especially well it comes to staying! The blush is moderately pigmented, especially on medium skin tones! I mean it took at least 3 swipes to get the colour to show up on my skin! On extremely fair skin tones, this wouldn’t be a problem though! But the downside here is the staying! I have oily skin which is not too oily in winters, but even in this chilly weather the blush could not manage to go beyond a 3 hour stretch! But thanks to the super petite packaging, I carried it in my bag and touched it up!

Do I recommend? 

Due to average pigmentation, it is great for makeup newbies! And at the price it comes, I can never say no to cheeky glow blushes!

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…
