Top 5 Blushes For Indian Skin Tones!


Top 5 Blushes For Indian Skin Tones!

ISLM Writer: Ishleen

Hello my darlings!
All hail summers! Yes, the season of oily, dull looking skin is here and this is the time of the year when I miss my Rosy-Posy cheeks and I crave for those just-pinched looking skin! And the best way to achieve that perfectly rosy cheeks is to get your hands on the best ever blush available in the market and sweep it across your cheekbones and blend it into your hairline and temples. But getting a great blush does not necessarily means you need to shell out a huge investment and we girl, have got you covered here! So in no particular order, let us start!

1. Maybelline Blush Studio Cheeky Glow Blush In Peachy Sweetie

If you just have 250 bucks in your pocket and you badly want a blush, just go get my favourite Maybelline Cheeky Glow blush in Peachy Sweetie. Like do not even think twice, just go get it now! It is decently pigmented, is a gorgeous daily wear peachy-pink matte shade, blends out pretty well and is just the perfect product for a nice pink flush for the daily wear makeup looks. Looks fresh and even stays on for a good 4-5 hours.

2. Kryolan Powder Blush In TC1

Kryolan is the most famous professional make up brand in the whole of India and it is so for a reason. The prices are affordable, the quantity is huge and the quality has the perfect finesse to it! The shade TC1 here is a gorgeous warm peach toned shade which has amazing oigmentation, stays on for longs, retails for 350 bucks and is the perfect option for both day looks and dramatic smokey makeup looks. One of the must have peachy-orangey, more terracotta like shades for Indian skin tones.

3. L'Oreal Paris Lucent Magique Blush In Fuchsia Flush

L'oreal is a bit expensive than other drugstore brands, but the quality it offers for the price is bomb! L'Oreal paris Lucent Magique blush range is pearly smooth and gives a gorgeous velvety finish. It retails for 850 bucks and the shade Fuchsia Flush is such a gorgeous blush with three shades of pinks--a pearly baby pink, a medium hot pink and an outright bright fuchsia pink blush. And without saying, the blush is packed on pigments and is the best bet for the range it is offered at. And above all it is my doll Suma's favourite, so it has to be purr-fect!

4. Mac Sheertone Shimmer Powder Blush In Plum Foolery

Mac is the epitome of blushes for me and if there is one thing I love about Mac blushes (no, not the price, that I hate :P) is the texture. Mac blushes are ultra smooth, blend out so damn well and are a dream to apply. But for the quality and quantity I do not mind splurging 1350 bucks on a single blush. And especially the shade Plum Foolery is such a perfect shade for us Indian beauties that no one can keep themselves from falling in love with it!

5. Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush In Soft Plum

Maybelline makes the best blushes in towns especially for those of us who do not find it worth investing in Makeup. A jar full of mousse blush from maybelline can be bought at a little above 200 bucks and it is the best blush if you are a newbie and still want to indulge in a pigmented blush. A little goes a long way and the shade soft plum is the best of the lot for Indian skin tones.

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…
