This week’s most loved products include some old favorites and few new, including a skin care product for the first time on this feature. Brands featured in today’s post – NARS, Olay, Faces Canada, Make Up For Ever and Lakme!
1. NARS Blush : Torrid
NARS Torrid is the most stunning blush ever! Its a beautiful apricot shade containing gold micro-shimmer that instantly adds warmth and life to my face. Orgasm is the most hyped blush from NARS but it gives little color and mostly shimmer to my medium complexion. Torrid on the other hand is everything I had imagined Orgasm to be. The formula is excellent – soft texture, brilliant pigmentation, blends easily into the skin and stays on well! Full review coming up soon. I’m wearing it HERE. Price : 3000 JPY (Rs 1776)
2. Olay Total Effects 7 in one Day Cream
This is an excellent day cream for winters. The texture isn’t too thick so my combination skin carries it well, it adds an instant glow when I apply it and it contains SPF 15 which means I can skip the sunblock (for now!). I haven’t been using it too long so don’t know if it does anything in the long run. Will update if it does. Price : Rs 750.
3. Faces Glam on eye shadow : Ruby Quartz
I saw a girl wearing a pink eye shadow similar to this on the train the other day and had the urge to sport pink lids myself. I rarely wear pink eye shadows and when I do, I generally reach for this one. This coppery pink satiny eye shadow doesn’t have the best wear time but the texture, pigmentation and color is great! Its also easier to carry than a true pink. I’ve worn it HERE. Price : Rs 249.
4. Make Up For Ever Star Powder : 902 Pearl Gold
This is hands-down one of the most flattering highlighters for my skin tone. Pigments are a bit messy and hence I don’t reach for this often. But every time I do, I love how natural and soft it looks while adding a gorgeous golden glow to my skin. Swatched HERE. Price : $20
5. Lakme 9-to-5 Lip Liner : Brick Rose
Just like the 9-to-5 lipsticks, the 9-to-5 lip liners are an absolute delight! The formula is soft and creamy, color pay off is excellent and most importantly – they are matte but non-drying on the lips! Brick Rose is a beautiful peachy brown color – excellent neutral for the Indian skin (great nude for duskier complexions!). I love wearing this with a heavier smokey eye! Review coming soon. Price : Rs 375.
