Lake Enrich Matte Lipsticks Review & Swatches of My Favourite Lakme Enrich Matte Lipsticks Every once in a while a drugstore (afforadable) makeup brand comes up with a new launch that totally blows my socks off.

This time its Lakme that has me jump up with joy with their Enrich Matte Lipsticks...

Review: The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation I had updated on snapchat (@samyukta_islm) last week that I suspected the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation to be breaking me out and hence I have been keeping a keen eye on the foundation since.

So the wedding season has started and we all have been ton loads of busy in trying to keep up with the hectic but fun period that comes each year at this time! Long nights of sangeet and early morning rituals, not to forget the high dose of sugary nd greasy foods that we tend to gorge upon, do take a toll on the skin! And no matter what skincare regime you try on, a pimple, some spots, and a blemish or two, would definitely welcome you in these days! And yes, dark circles, how can we forget them?

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate ISLM Writer: Ishleen Hello everyone! Today I am here with a very interesting Kajal review—which has been the most raved about almost all over the Indian Beauty market! A very wise man once said—Eyes are the windows to a woman’s soul—and one thing which spark off’s the Indian beauty to its utmost extent is a heavy kohl-rimmed eye! Eye makeup using kohl is something which Indian beauty’s love to bits because we generally do not like using eyeshadows on a daily basis!

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Green   REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Green ISLM Writer: Sanchita Black liner, black kajal and black eyeshadow – sounds monotonous, eh? Well, thank the Heavens for beautiful colored liners. My new-found love are the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal which I bought in bulk for the festive and wedding season. These were launched way back in the day but those days my obsession was mostly black so I didn’t pay much heed to these. Today I am going to review the shade green which looks quite exquisite on the eyes too! Read on to know more about the color.


  LAKME 9 TO 5 INSTA LIGHT CRÈME REVIEW ISLM Writer: Sanchita Lakme is the household name for every woman in India. In fact, all of us, at some point of time or the other, has used something from this brand. The best thing about Lakme is that they keep the price tags suitable for both budget friendly and high end products. 9 to 5 range is quite a commendable range and happens to be my all-time favorite. After trying out the foundation, compact, lipsticks of this particular range, I decided to use the Insta light crème that they have launched few months back. So let us get into the details of this newbie love.

Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse   Review of Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse in Golden Medium ISLM Writer: Himani Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse in Golden Medium. I don't even remember how many foundations I have bought and tried to find my HG foundation.

And I am sure lot of you will relate and remember those wrong buys which once looked like a ray of hope.

REVIEW: Lakme Absolute Plump and Shine 3D Gloss in Peach Shine

Lakme Absolute Plump and Shine 3D Gloss in Peach Shine   Review of  Lakme Absolute Plump and Shine 3D Gloss in Peach Shine You know the biggest mistake that you can commit when trying to lose weight is, rewarding yourself. I weighed myself today morning to be 2 Kgs lighter than I was a week ago and to reward myself, the pati and I went out to Pizza Hut for lunch. Big Mistake! Huge Mistake! Humongous Mistake! The guilt I feel right now is immeasurable and I vow to not reward myself till I lose 5 more kilos...

REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Green

  Review of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Green The past couple of months have been crazy in terms of office workload and hence unhealthy sleeping patterns, family weddings and hence unhealthy eating patterns and well laziness... And so last week when I weighed myself to be 60 kg (I am 5'3.5") I almost freaked out and have been on a strict dietary regimen ever since. More about it in detail in an upcoming post...

REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Blue

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Blue   Review of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Blue As I sit here drafting this post while simultaneously watching Ghana fight it out with the USA in the FIFA World Cup 2014, I cannot help but feel sad for Portugal and the way they were washed out by the mighty "Aryans"... Portugal is my favorite team (Spain comes a close second), mostly due to my obsession with Cristiano Ronaldo but I like Pepe and Coentrao too and so Pepe's Red Card was something that completely broke my heart tonight.

Review: Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in Rosy Sunday

  Review of Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in Rosy Sunday Guest Post by: Mrittika After coming across this shade on a beauty blog, I nearly searched all possible Lakme counters at malls as well as small stores, but none of them had it. I had to book this shade and left my number with the SA to inform me whenever stock comes in. Well, that’s how I got it.

LOTD: A Perfect Look For Saturday Night Clubbing

  Featuring: Lakme Absolute Colour Illusion Eyeshadow "Smokey Pearl" I did this look with a blank mind, I had nothing going on and by the time I finished photographing, I was wondering what I should name it... So I did not do a post on it and just randomly posted it on Instagram and hence Facebook and Twitter... You guys loved it (thank you so much :D) and Bidisha labelled the look as Perfect for a Saturday Night Party Look and thus I got my title for the post :) Thanks sweetheart :) ♥

Lakme Absolute Colour Illusion Range By Rajesh Pratap Singh - A Sneak Peek

  New Launch: Illusion by Lakme Absolute I just made plans with an old colleague and a very dear friend for dinner on Friday. Its exciting and I can't wait for it to be Friday evening already :) Doesn't it feel amazing to meet with old friends and take a walk down memory lane? And that is the exact feeling I get when I use Lakme products... I know that Lakme has revamped itself, gotten an image makeover and glammed up to quite a few notches higher, but I still feel like a little girl rummaging through my mum's dresser, everytime Lakme products come up...

LOTD: Indian Wedding/Festive Makeup Look Featuring Lakme 9to5 Eye Color Quartet in Tanjore Rush

  Indian Wedding/Festive Makeup Look Using Lakme Tanjore Rush Just the fact that I have 3 weddings to attend in the first quarter of 2014 is enough to put me in a tizzy and start hyperventilating about my outfits and makeup. And the fact that all three weddings are not in Pune and are rather in different parts of the country doesn't help either! Managing leaves, getting outfits ready and deciding on my makeup are just a few things that are topping my mental lists right now and hence don't be surprised about the slew of wedding party and festive makeup that I shall come up with in the next few weeks ;)

Video: Get Ready With Me For A Quick Winter Makeup Look

A Quick Winter Makeup Video Tutorial The weather in Pune is getting awesome by the minute... With a slight nip in the air and yet abundant sunshine, it is really hard not to want to laze on your sunny terrace with a mug of Green Tea, some PikWik (strictly chocolate) and an Agatha Christie... Well at least that's how I envisioned spending my Winter vacations... However, closer to reality, I spent the whole sunny afternoon clicking pictures of products one after another till I was so exhausted that I brewed myself a cup of sweet but kadak  Indian Chai  and watched reruns of CSI Miami...

Video Tutorial: Rihanna Inspired Red Lips & Winged Eye Liner Look

Video Tutorial: Rihanna Inspired Red Lips And Winged Eye Liner Look More often than not Red carpet looks that awe us and leave us spellbound are so difficult to achieve and emulate and require loads of exotic sounding and expensive products. So much so that there was a time when I totally stopped even looking at Red Carpet looks for inspiration... And then I came across this gorgeous makeup on Rihanna that looked so gorgeous and so sexy and seemed so simple and easy to achieve...

REVIEW: Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush in Day Sheer

Review of Lakme Absolute's Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush In Day Sheer I am not a blush person per se. Don't get me wrong, I do use a blush and I totally realize its power in making or breaking a look. However, give me one blush that I can spend my whole life with it and not even feel the need to get myself another one until I actually hit pan with the one that I am using. Yes! I always finish my blush before I purchase another and I know many of you will just gasp at it with disbelief... So let me just reiterate, I am not really a blush person per se.
