Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duo Coral Blush : Swatches, Review, FOTD

 

Hey everyone!

Lakme Absolute Face Stylist range launched around this time last year and had some hits and misses for me. I’ve had this blush from the range all this time but I completely forgot to review this. The Face stylist blush duos come in 4 variants and I am reviewing the Coral Duo today.

 

Price : Rs 750 for 6 g  |  Available online at Amazon.in

My take on the Product

 

The blush comes in a simple round pan packaging with a clear flip open lid. The outer packaging housing the compact had a small applicator brush but the actual blush compact has no space to store this brush so high chances that you would misplace it like I did! The blush has a fairly smooth texture but doesn’t feel powdery. The texture could have been a little silkier though. In comparison to the Cheek Chromatic blushes from Lakme, this almost feels chalky. It gives sheer color is a single swipe which you can layer if you want a more intense color. Its blends without difficulty and I’m happy with the staying power as well (6+ hours with foundation underneath).

Coral Blush duo contains a pale orange (left) and a rich coral (right). The two look quite similar on the skin but the finish is a little different as the coral on the right has some fine gold shimmer while the left shade is almost matte. The two swirled together give a beautiful warm coral flush to the skin while the soft shimmer adds a little glow. I think this color would suit a lot of people!

 

Sadly, the color for me is the best thing about the blush. The formula though decent could have been better (at this price!) and the packaging is not impressive either. Beginners might like using this as the color is sheer and buildable. Personally, I much prefer the softer, more pigmented formula of the Cheek Chromatic blushes.

Rating : 3.75/5

    hi…i always view your reviews before taking the product..please suggest me a good highlighter but that is in budget too 🙂

      You could try the Colorbar Radiant Glow Pen highlighter, it retails for around Rs 500 I think. Faces Metalliglow liquid highlighter is another good option.
