REVIEW: NYX HD Blush in HDB1 Bronzed

So I really want to rush through this post cause it's my bestie's husband's birthday in 4 hours and we are all going out and as usual I am running late... But no I won't rush through this, I promise cause well it is a review post and reviews should be lengthy and should go on and on and on, right? Wrong!

I believe reviews can be effective even if they are short but should be to the point and informative. Do you believe the same?

So anyhow, the NYX fever is on. For those who have no idea why then let me be the 1564th blogger to tell you that NYX has now officially launched in India. They haven't really shared much information with us but as of now it is available on And yes it was always available in Sephora. But what I am looking forward to is independent NYX stores or even kiosks though am not sure if that'll happen any time soon...
NYX is a little expensive in India still and there is a tiny margin of a difference in prices between Sephora and Nykaa.

Like many bloggers, I got sent an array of NYX makeup products before the launch and I have been having a go at all of them. Today, however, I plan to review the NYX High Definition Blush in the shade HDB01 or Bronzed.

Looking at the name, one expects a warm, bronzy blush while the pan as such looks a little cool toned shimmery peach. Surprisingly though it looks warm when I apply it. On a side note I am recently realising that I am probably not warm toned but neutral and hence since this peachy blush looks warm on me, it may not look the same on someone who is truly warm toned. I hope I am making sense here!

Price of NYX HD Blush

It costs INR 600/-

Texture wise the NYX HD Blush are very soft and are very easily bendable thus making it great for even those who are just starting out with makeup. They have pretty good pigmentation and you don't have to struggle to bring the color out if you know what I am saying.
They look great in photographs and make your skin look smoothed out in pictures.
They are absolutely odourless and don't seem to break me out or cause any reactions.

However, they don't stay very long on me, I have seen the blush disappear after about 4 hours of wear in an AC environment, which is baffling really cause all other brands of blushes stay on me for more than 7 hours.

Overall Rating:

It is a good blush but nothing that would make you go wow per se. For the price you could try out a couple of shades.


  1. Absolutely stunning. Love that shade on you x

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.

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…

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.
