Today I am all set to share with you all a new product launched by Lakme recently. Festive mood has already set in everywhere; I was surfing online sites for time pass. I saw Dussera offer for all Lakme products online, so without any further delay I ordered this product. I know it is not a big sale discount but I just wanted to try this new product so went ahead and ordered. I blindly bought this product, I always refer IMBB for swatches and more. As it was not reviewed, this time I took risk and just bought it, it did look pretty with that tiny computer image itself 😛 I had already bought the lakme absolute drama stylist eyeshadow duo from a nearby store but they did not have blush duos. I ordered bare essentials foundation sponge set along with a blush duo in coral. Read on to know more.
Gives your cheeks a natural radiance with this silky powder formulation that blends effortlessly for a luminous finish.
INR 750 for 6 grams, I got it for 562 after 25% discount
The blush duo comes in a black cardboard rectangular box which has the product name printed on it. Inside the blush is placed in a black flimsy plastic case, a small blush brush comes along with the case. Packaging of the blush comes very similar to the lakme absolute bronzer. It is a simple round case, the lid is see-through kind while the bottom part holding the blush in black. The two blushes are placed side by side.
The blush brush which comes along with the blush is super cute. The brush is quite fluffy and will be a little help for touch ups but I really don’t think you can blend out the blush. I wished they had an inbuilt space in the blush case itself to store it, as I am sure that black flimsy case will tear soon. Overall the packaging of the blush itself is simple and sturdy.
The blush has a duo of pretty coral with subtle silver shimmer and a deep peachy pink with subtle gold shimmer. I really love the colours 😀 Both the blushes have shimmer and the shimmer is subtle and delicate. The blushes give a soft flush and if you have a very deep skin tone, it would not show up well. I think these blushes would work well for fair and medium skin tones. I have a medium wheatish skin tone (I am nc 42-43.5 in mac) I really like the colour on my skin tone, it doesn’t wash me out but gives a good flush of colour after layering few times. If you are having a fairer skin tone it might give you good colour on your cheeks with two swirls of brush but with a medium dusky skin tone like me I would like three swirls to get a pretty flush. I really can guess all this because my face is nc 42 in mac and my hands are some six tones fairer than my face 😛
The texture of the blushes is soft and smooth. The shimmer is delicate and blends well with the colour. The pigmentation is average, which is what I love. If you are new to blushes you would really not know how to get the right amount of colour but with averagely pigmented blushes you can build it up slowly for the right flush.
The blushes have good staying time, it stays on me for about 5 and half hours. A primer underneath you can extend the wear time.
