New in Makeup and Beauty – Lakme, Bourjois and MaxFactor

by Rati on June 8, 2010 · 47 comments

I was dying to see Lakme Eye Magic. I know we don’t lurrvvveee Lakme but still I don’t know I am always intrigued by their new launches. And WE kind of enjoy talking about Lakme. πŸ˜€ Anyway, I was so pleasantly surprised to see lakme Eye Magic. They are soooooooo beautiful. *I don’t believe I am saying this. :giggle: *Lakme Eye Magic Two shades available- gold and silver. Price : Rs 295 Lakme Eye Magic Suneet VermaCome with wand applicators, which are super easy to use. Gold Lakme Eye Magic GoldSilver Lakme Eye Magic SilverThe texture is gel like and shimmer just gorgeous. You can just apply them all over your lid, apply liner & mascara and you would be sorted. Lakme Eye Magic SwatchesSamantha wanted to see the shades of all the Bourjois blushes. There are 15 shades available. These are baked blushes. Price Rs 550. I think I will pick up at least one of these once again. πŸ™‚ Bourjois BlushAnd Bourjois Khol and Contour Pencils have launched in India. πŸ™‚

Rs 240. The price is so amazing. Isn’t it?

There are 6 shades available:

  • Black
  • Dark Gray
  • Kahki
  • Dark Green
  • Chocolate Brown
  • Purple

Bourjois Khol and ContourThey can be worn on waterline and can be smudged. The texture is soft and the pencils glide on pretty easily. I think the staying power wouldn’t be bad because when SA removed the swatches from my hand, they did not disappear completely. She had to swipe my hand at least 2-3 times . :yes: Bourjois Khol and Contour Swatches And the Maxfactor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush.

There are 5 shades available in total but Kunchals had only two shades left as of now.Pretty , pretty very pretty.

Rs 540



Max factor Cream Blushes

Left: Sugar Pink ; Right- Soft Murano



All the above mentioned products are available at Kunchals, GK-1 New Delhi.

What would you pick? πŸ™‚

I tried these – the eye magic thingies – this weekend. After reading all your blogs, now I am so curious about anything new I see on the counter and for a change the SA was really sweet. I loved the Gold but didn’t pick it up..and now I just know I should have πŸ™ Found a similar thing in Avon too, so maybe will just try that instead.

As for the Bourjois blushes..I read somewhere they tend to harden over time or they are already pretty hard or something..

Rati June 8, 2010 at 2:38 pm

The blushes are baked ones so the top layer tends to get hard over the time. Just swipe the *hard* brush that come along with it once in a month over the top and your blushes would be as new as ever. They very beautiful. Try picking up atleast one of them.

The only reason i didn’t pick up Lakme eye magic was that i have similar stuff with me. Otherwise they are very very pretty. My only concern is creasing. Although I don’t think they should because after blending they set beautifully on my hand. But I think thee would be a good pick. πŸ™‚


Radhika June 8, 2010 at 2:29 pm

Those eye pencils…the black is soo black..I HAVE to have this NOWWWW!!! Am loving the khakhi too…RATI..stop putting up swatches..I have been going up and down the post looking at pics and my list is already 3 items long!!

Rati June 8, 2010 at 2:42 pm

Have you ever thought how hard it must be for me not to pick up just every bloody thing available in the market. πŸ˜€ These companies are making better and better products and I just want everything. πŸ™ But how much would I use is the only question I ask every time. I don’t have a khaki shade in my collection. Errrr… now I am also looking at the swatches. 😯


Rati June 8, 2010 at 2:44 pm

Btw what all is included in the three item long list. πŸ˜›


Radhika June 8, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Oh..that is easy..the eyemagic..which I have now edited out of the list – cost-cutting πŸ˜› Am down to 2 – black and khakhi…hopefully my computer and internet will go on a vacation somewhere – and I won’t see anymore of the sinful pics on your site. And no, seriously, I have no idea how you don’t pick just about everything!

This internet..bahuuut bad thing!!

Rati June 8, 2010 at 3:46 pm

sinful pics?? loll!!

good picks, btw. πŸ˜›


Palak June 8, 2010 at 3:06 pm

ohh.. the Bourjois kohl and contour pencil looks b”ful.
Price dont hurt either !!
I’m surely picking up the “khaki” and ” Dark green” !~!

Rati June 8, 2010 at 3:51 pm

I am surely picking up khaki. πŸ˜› I dunno why I have not picked it up already. :-/


Aarthi June 8, 2010 at 3:23 pm

Blushes are really tempting πŸ™ but I dont use them very frequently.


Rati June 8, 2010 at 3:52 pm

oh you must use them. I have like 8-10 blushes with me and i can have more. πŸ˜€


sush June 8, 2010 at 3:26 pm

hi rati,the Lakme eye magic seems very tempting…..spe d gold one.
btw whick 1 do u think is better d eye pot or the eye magic???

Planning to pink up 1 v soon… kindly suggest :-))


Rati June 8, 2010 at 3:54 pm

errr.. both are different. Eye magic is more of shimmery eye shadow. Eye pot is a creamy base shadow. You swatch both and you’ll see the difference. Both are pretty. πŸ™‚


sush June 8, 2010 at 4:11 pm

OK I’ll do so. thx :-*


Sarah June 8, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Love max factor cream blushes , I have sample saze of soft pink which is kind of coral pink, gorgeous , soft texture and spreads like a dream .I’m gonna get full size when some1 goes or comes frm Uk


Sarah June 8, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Opps its size* not saze :p


Rati June 8, 2010 at 3:56 pm

Yeah, they blended in very beautifully. And the shades are pretty. πŸ™‚
I want to see when you get the full sazes. Okay. πŸ˜›


Priyanka June 8, 2010 at 4:00 pm

The bourjois pencils are just too good i wanted to buy a nice kajal so this one is a must buy for me.. and this is the best black i’ve come across..!!! And the price is so good that im tempted to buy khaki as well..!!!


Rati June 8, 2010 at 4:15 pm

he he, khaki is sooo pretty. Yes you would be able to wear it on your waterline and it claims 16 hr stay. I thought these would smudge a bit coz they are kohls but mostly I liked them a lot. And a little bit of smudging can be handled.:)


tanveer June 8, 2010 at 4:30 pm

Wow, all this stuff looks so pretty! I am liking the Bourjois Khaki pencil a lot.. & the maxfactor cream blushes!! They are so pretty.. Now i am so conflicted! I want them all!


Rati June 8, 2010 at 5:10 pm

I know. πŸ˜› Khaki i becoming fav here. πŸ™‚


Emjay June 8, 2010 at 4:36 pm

My heart beats for the Bourjois blushes! The Khol pencils are so reasonably priced! Rati, does Bourjois sell the 10 hour sleep effect foundation in India? I have yet to come across it.


Rati June 8, 2010 at 5:22 pm

No Emjay, I don’t think so. We are till stuck on healthy Mix Foundation. πŸ˜›


ki. June 8, 2010 at 8:24 pm

But it’s more for oily skin :-/

bas ho gaya I am closing my eyes now..


Rati June 8, 2010 at 5:28 pm

Buy Powder Blushes. πŸ™‚ I love blushes from Colorbar, MAC , Inglot and Bourjois. πŸ™‚ NYX also if you can get it where you live.

Sonal and Priyanka gave some rave reviews about the Maybelline Blushes as well. πŸ™‚


Blushes are the easiest to buy. They are more of shade selection. If you are fair , go for rosy pinks, wheatish- look for peachy pinks, peaches etc.


Urmi June 8, 2010 at 5:07 pm

Oh everything looks so tempting. I am coming to Delhi next week, I have to help Di buy cosmetics,shoes etc for her wedding. Can you suggest me a place where I’d find, colorbar, maybelline, revlon products and some accesories like makeup brush, false eyelash etc?


Rati June 8, 2010 at 5:33 pm


Go to select City walk. They are three malls in one place- MGF Metropolitan, Select City Walk and DLF.

At MGF you have shopper’s stop where you’ll find most of your Lakme, Revlon, Maybelline, Loreal. Even Clarins, YSL, Shiseido, etc.

At Select City walk you have stand alone stores of Colorbar, Estee Lauder, MAC, Inglot, Lancome, The Body Shop, Clinique, Lush etc.

If you want to pick up Bourjois and Max Factor, you would have to come to Gk- 1 M Block Market. Ask for Kunchals and you’ll get these two there. πŸ™‚

Hope that helps and Welcome to Delhi. πŸ™‚


Urmi June 9, 2010 at 1:19 pm

Thank You! That helps a lot πŸ™‚


ki. June 8, 2010 at 8:22 pm

I’m getting the cream blush and khaki, I think :))
.-= ki.´s last blog ..Stila, Urban Decay and blog sale major haul!!! πŸ˜€ =-.


Rati June 8, 2010 at 8:24 pm

Me too getting Khaki for sure now. πŸ˜€


Aastha June 8, 2010 at 10:01 pm

Love the new products.
I’m currently in the market for some non smudging kohl which gives an intense black line.
Most of the hindi film actresses sem to be wearing one.
Please give me some suggestions guys.
Really, really need the help


Urmi June 11, 2010 at 10:16 am

I can swear by Revlon Colorstay Eye pencil. It does not smudge on my eyes AT ALL. That too in humid weather of Kolkata. My mom has watery eyes and it works for her too!


Rati June 8, 2010 at 10:27 pm


Kohls smudge. Some smudge more and some less. The hindi films actresses get loads of touch ups before they step in public. We can’t afford such a huge luxury. Can we? But you can always set your kohls with eaither a dark brown or black eyeshdow. Just apply the eyeshadow on your lash line after you have applied your kajal. You can use an ear bud to apply eyeshadow or a very thin brush.


Sabrina June 9, 2010 at 12:30 am

Oh heck, Rati, I have over 35 to 40 blushes (am I mad?), I have now started giving away make up, but I still go out and buy anything new. !!!!!


Rati June 9, 2010 at 9:42 am

Now my only wish is that I want to see all of them. :DD

Since when have you been collecting blushes? πŸ˜›


HD June 9, 2010 at 11:39 am

Me 2…want to see them πŸ™‚


Sabrina June 9, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Been collecting blushes for quite some time now. Consists of Body Shop, Bourjois, MAC, L’oreal, Maybelline, Lakme, ColorBar, Faces, Chambor, Pupa, etc. etc.!!!!!! Will take them all out & try & do a review soon.


jomol June 9, 2010 at 10:31 am

A mere look at the blushes (Maxfactor) is enough to tell that they are worth every penny………….they would look so lovely on cheeks……


Rati June 9, 2010 at 10:39 am

Some factor will make them work. :rotfl: :rotfl:


HD June 9, 2010 at 11:39 am

Completely loving the blushes!!! I think I will get the bourjois one


Rati June 9, 2010 at 11:41 am

I am also going to pick my second Bourjois blush and the khaki pencil. πŸ™‚


HD June 9, 2010 at 11:53 am

Rati June 9, 2010 at 11:56 am

Any day Colorbar Peachy Rose. πŸ™‚

These are the good picks when you want to add something different in your collection.


HD June 9, 2010 at 12:04 pm
