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 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.
