Lakme Pure Rouge Blusher ‘Rose Crush’ : Review, Swatch and FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing one of the favorite blushes – LAKME Pure rouge blusher in the shade ‘Rose Crush‘ . It is a matte earthy pink powder blush which gives an earthy rosy glow  and looks very flattering for Indian skin tones.

Price : Rs 395

Quantity : 6 g

Packaging : It has a rectangular maroon(signature Lakme!) sleek casing with a transparent cover and brush provided inside. This casing comes housed in a maroon cardboard casing open at two opposite ends so the inside casing can be slid out easily. The packaging is quite sturdy and the transparent cover snaps shut snugly. The brush provided is of good quality, the bristles are quite soft and does the job of application quite well. I don’t require another blush brush when using this blush. The only con of the packaging is the absence of a mirror for touch ups.

Spring/Summer look#10: MAC Vimi Joshi inspired Bubble gum Pink look

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a Bubble gum pink look inspired by MAC Senior Artist  Vimi Joshi’s Hot Bubble Gum Pink look ( Quite Cute Collection) recently posted on Twitter by the artist herself. Click HERE to see the inspiration behind this look.

The products used By Vimi J to create this look are from the MAC Quite cute collection. I’ve tried to recreate the look using whatever products I had. Some of the colors(like the lip color) haven’t come out quite right but I enjoyed doing this look! I wouldn’t have normally worn a white+pink combination of eye shadows but I loved the look Vimi Joshi created!

Here’s the final look :

Spring/Summer look#9 : Experiment with NYX ‘Yellow’ Jumbo pencil

Hi everyone!

This is an experiment I tried using NYX Jumbo eye pencil in the shade ‘Yellow‘.  I wanted a yellow all over lid color with a hint of blue at the outer corner and crease but instead it turned out a milky-white with a hint of yellow and blue.

I paired the eye makeup with a bright pink lipstick for a colorful spring/summer look. This is definitely not a subtle look but the lighter (milky-white-yellow) shade in combination with the blue gives a bright look to the eyes. I’d pair this look with a monochrome outfit in greyed down shades of blue, green or safer neutral shades- balck, white and beige.

Here’s the final look –
