Lakme Pure Rouge Blush in Ginger Surprise and Avon True Color Blush in Peche
This one is for you Rati! When Ki asked the IMBB gang what lakme products she can take with her abroad, we all came up with fab selections for her. I had to think a little though, as lakme can be very disappointing though at times. Not to mention the prices they increase almost overnight. Some products still are safe to be picked up on recommendations. My pick for her was one such blusher in ginger surprise. One of the blogs had mentioned its resemblance to nars orgasm but frankly have no idea. I don’t wear blushes everyday simply because of fear of braking out and also I do not find it appropriate to wear a blush everywhere I go. But I just love the thought of blushes and can’t stop buying more, I don’t wear blushes on the apples but rather I locate the jaw bone and wear a light color over the jaw line and if it’s a darker color, I wear it in the hollow. That’s the max for me and I go absolutely easy on matte blushes. Less is def more for blushes unless u want to look like u just came back from a jog all red and flushed on the face. These are two blushes totally different from each other.
Lakme pure rouge blusher ginger surprise:
Price (can’t remember but 300 to 400 rs I believe, sorry) for 6 gram
What the pack says: a pure pressed powder blusher provides sheer and lightweight application.color builds layer after layer without heavy coverage. Enhances cheekbones with a luminous silky matte finish.
The packaging : I love the packaging. It covers with a outer carton which you can slide off . The inner case of heavy plastic looks very nice and protective of the contents .it comes with pretty transparent and purple kinda casing. the case is heavy and unlike other lighter packs of cosmetics. I believe it is very much like the lakme eye shadow quads in packaging. 4 on 5
The brush : no comments, it’s a flat brush and I have no idea how one is supposed to apply blush with it . It may be used to mark the hollow or jawbone because the brush is flat and straight. It has plastic bristles.
The color: the color of the blush is unlike any I have seen or I have. It’s very pretty coral rust type of color with sheen and has the shimmer of a bronzer, the color is no where close to pinks or peaches but a totally pretty earthy color for Indian skin. I think the sheerness and the luminous effect it gives can be compared to a bronzer. It looks amazing for evening and just a hint over the hollow to enhance and highlight the cheek is enough.
The color is not matte and will look best when not used on the apple but directly on the cheek bones. The color is soft and there can be fall out on the face if u don’t pat the excess off the brush. It comes out sheer and can be really built if needed. I totally recommend it for all Indian skins. If oily skin do not want the luminous sheen it gives, u can skip it or mattify with pressed powder. I will rock dry skin and normal skin giving it a healthy glow.
It is kinda like that highlight that Rati wore (chanel I guess) and we all went gaga over it saying her skin looked luminous and fresh, its very comparable to that color. It is very silky but for oily skin it may cake up in 4 hours. Needs to be blended well. Cant say about breaking up as I don’t wear it daily and I have acne prone and oily skin. 🙁

About the blush:
It a matte peachy pink color. I do not find it smooth enough but good enough for the sale price of 199 Rs. It is semi smooth and comes out very lightly pigmented on the cheeks. It may not suit dark skinned people and dry skinned people may find it drying and doing nothing for adding sheen. the color is not very pigmented and will go light on the skin. It will disappear in 4 to 5 hours . it will need blending well .on the plus side, it’s a very wearable color for everyday and will never look over the top. It will not cake up on oily skin. good color for the apple of the cheeks. Cant say about breaking up as I don’t wear it daily and I have acne prone and oily skin. 🙁
Packaging: I love the dark glossy black case it comes with, there s an oval mirror inside and the case is classy enough to carry along. There is also an outer carton packing for it.5 on 5
The brush: It has animal hair and I find it scratchy. 🙁
Pricing: :-*:-*:-*:-* at least on sale price
Availability: :-*:-* through avon reps and till the clearance sale stocks last this month.
Over all an above average product for everyday wear.
