REVIEW: Sleek Blush in Life's A Peach

Review of Sleek Make Up Blush Life's A Peach 
Guest Post By: Shabby
Sleek was a brand I was very eager to try and when I heard that it accepted debit cards I tried my luck and to my utter surprise succeeded. Then within 5 days I had my sleek order in my hands in safe condition too. So moving on to the ordered items, I ordered a blush as I had heard so much about the awesome quality of Blushes by Sleek. Somehow I was impressed by Life's a peach with the online swatch and ordered that.

REVIEW & LOTD: Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush in Floral Fucsia

They say earlier when make-up wasn't really a way of life, girls pinched their cheeks to bring that "blush" to their cheeks. But alas that never works for me. However hard I pinch myself I can never get that "virginal blush" on my face. But why should I lose out I ask myself and hence get myself a "blush" that gives me the just-pinched blush and better still, it stays on me for a much longer time :D So take that :P

Ladies and Gentlemen welcome the newest kid on my "blush block", Colorbar's Cheek Illusion Blush in Floral Fuscia :) Colorbar has changed the packaging of its blushes and also introduced a few new shades :) The packaging thus has become more striking and blingey :) Not that I am complaining ;) Floral Fuscia though looks quite muted like its older cousins Plum Brown and Just Earth, but on the cheeks it truly imparts a rosy blush that would suit especially warmer skintones :) While applying these blushes you will also notice th…

Review & LOTD: Illamasqua Powder Blush in Morale

Ever happened to you that you hear people talking about something over and over again and then suddenly one fine morning you make up your mind to get it for yourself as well? LOL... That's exactly what happened to me when the biggies in the Indian Beauty Blog-o-sphere were all talking about "Illamasqua" day after day and well I had to have one too :P So when I got the opportunity I got myself this blush from Illamasqua and well yes I am glad that I did! :)

Illamasqua they say is make-up for your alter ego. It is for the bolder person hiding inside all of us. It is an act and an attitude. A symbol of tolerance. A celebration of idiosyncrasies. A confident statement of self-ownership.

The shade Morale, which is from the "theatre of the nameless" collection is a bold fuschia and it sure isn't the kind of shade that looks really bright in the pan but is pretty sheer and "wearable" in person. Rather, Morale is a shade that seems to be proud of its &q…

Blush Blush...

Having been a fan of making up my eyes for effects ranging from sheer drama to pure innocence, I decided to experiment with other parts of my face... Now you see I have been gifted with really thin lips and so experimenting with them isn't really a welcoming idea to me. So I zeroed in on BLUSH. Yes yes yes blush that makes you look "oh so fresh", "oh so rosy", "have you just been pinched" pink... And it sure did turn out to be a good idea :D

I am not ashamed to say that I did try being cheap and initially used a pink eye shadow as blush. And voila! It turned out to be a success. BLUSH actually suited me! So I have finally gone ahead and have bought a propah blush for myself. It is STREET WEAR Smoothwear blush, the shade being "Pink Blossom". I bought it for Rs.190/-. It is turning out to be pretty ok, nothing very noteworthy, well what did I really expect out of Rs.190? It imparts a pink flush to my cheek and that's about it! Oh but yes, …
