From now on, Fridays shall be dedicated to a roundup of 3-5 products that I’ve loved over the week! In the first installment of this series, I have my favorites from the past few days that I want to share with all of you featuring products from – L’Oreal Paris, Lakme and Maybelline.
Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush : Pink Blush (Rs 750)
This has been my go-to pink blush for a while now! The duo contains a peachy rose shade along with a soft raspberry color – both containing ultra-fine subtle shimmer – the shades give a very flattering pink flush to the cheeks. The texture is reasonably smooth (not powdery) and the color intensity is buildable. The color stays well over 6 hours on my cheeks. Overall, like everything except the packaging – could have been prettier!
L’Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color : Bella (Rs 499)
This one deserves its own post (coming soon) but while I work on that, I recommend all of you try at least one shade from this range! This is one of the best lip glosses EVER. The formula is ultra light weight, very comfortable and hydrating and doesn’t wear off even with meals/drinks. Its absolutely AMAZING! Bella is a gorgeous peachy rose color – gives a very beautiful natural color to the lips. If only it wasn’t so expensive here in Japan
Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Gel Liner (Rs 450)
Maybelline India has relaunched its gel liner in a new avatar and I like the formula much more – its creamier, darker and stays on really well. I’ve not been a fan of Maybelline gel liners until now! You can see a full review for this HERE.
L’Oreal Paris False Lash Telescopic Mascara (approx. Rs 1100)
I’ve heard rave reviews of the L’Oreal Telescopic mascara and I picked up this one from Delhi Airport Duty Free. The brush feels quite skinny but adds good volume and length to the eyes without clumping. Love the jet black color (I have the shade Magnetic Black), its water resistant and comes off with ease with an eye makeup remover. I love big lashes and this one plumps them up really nicely. Awesome mascara, recommended! (Unfortunately, not available on counters in India). You can see it on my eyes HERE.
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Nail Enamel : Copper Cuff (Rs 235)
I’m wearing this on my nails currently (only on the tips, see manicure HERE) and LOVING it! Its such a gorgeous glitter nail polish – looks beautiful paired with nudes, pinks, peaches and corals. It even got me compliments from my husband, not once but twice on the same day It was launched as part of the Cannes 2013 collection, I think it should still be available in stores. Recommended if you love glitter!
