The product I am reviewing today is the Lakme Pure Rouge Blusher in the shade Rose Crush that I bought a week ago. The pictures that I have posted below are a combination of pictures taken indoors with flash and pictures taken in natural light.
Rs. 425 for a quantity of 6 gms.
My Take on Lakme Pure Rouge Blusher Rose Crush:
The colour is a matte reddish-brown colour in the pan which when applied on the cheeks appear as a light brown shade with strong pink undertones.
The cover of the case is transparent and the rest of the case is purple in color (like eggplant purple :P). The case is quite sturdy and does not look cheap.
There is a small brush provided along with the blush, which I find useless. It does not even pick the colour up from the pan. No mirror is provided.
The pigmentation of the blush is nice. A single swipe of a blush brush would impart a soft colour to the cheeks which can be buildable with more swipes.

The texture is smooth and soft with finely milled powder with mild fallout from the pan during each application.
I like the way this blush blends on my cheeks so easily giving them a soft pinkish-brownish tinge when I apply it with a light hand. The result actually looks like a natural flush on the cheeks on my wheatish skin.
Staying power is pretty good. On my cheeks, this blush lasts for around 4 to 5 hours after which it starts to fade out evenly.
