Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush (71) Malice Review

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m reviewing the Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in shade Malice which is a lovely warm peach toned color. I have previously tried the Cream Blush in Revelation and it is one of my favorite blushes of all time (I’ve hit pan on a blush for the first time!). The Joues Contraste powder blush formula is the one of the silkiest I’ve tried and truly feels worth the price tag.

Price : $45.00 (around Rs 2800 in India)

1. MAC Matte Blush : Melba

Melba is a one of the best blushes for Indian complexions in my opinion. Its a dusty peach color that is neither too peachy nor too earth toned and adds just the right amount of color to the cheeks. The matte formula is smooth and easy to blend, gives a natural looking finish and stays well. One of most loved MAC blushes for sure!

 

2. MAC Satin Blush : Fleur Power

If memory serves me right, this was my first MAC blush and one that I’ve recommended to countless people. If you’re looking for a pretty pink, look no further. This one of the shades that look fantastic on all complexions. The color is brightening but not too bright and livens up the face. If you’re feeling tired, this is the blush that would brighten up a dull complexion and add a rosy glow to the cheeks. The formula is soft and smooth, blends with ease and well pigmented so its best to use a light hand for application. The satin finish looks natural and the color stays on quite well too.

5 High-End products worth the splurge!

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m sharing a few favorite high-end, luxury makeup items that I feel are worth the big bucks! This is by no means a list of all of my favorite high end beauty items but just a few that I have been loving lately. Do share your luxury beauty favorites in the comments section below!

 

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (Rs 3000)

This is my favorite foundation and that is saying something because I’ve tried a ton of them! Its a classic liquid foundation – neither too runny nor too thick which gives medium-high coverage and a flawless natural finish. It makes my skin look amazing every time and it stays put throughout the day without oxidising or turning greasy on my skin. It photographs really well too which is why its perfect for special occasions, especially weddings. Highly recommended! Full review here.

2. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipsticks ($37)

I couldn’t NOT mention the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks here. They are simply the prettiest lipsticks around (look at the gorgeous gold packaging!) and the formula is wonderful. The classic range is creamier while the Shine range has a glossier finish and a slightly sheerer formula. It still packs on plenty of pigment and gives a gorgeous, luscious look to the lips. The formula is buttery soft and it hydrates better than any lip balm I’ve used. It also smells like mango which happens to be my favorite fruit! If you like pinks, do check out #17 Rose in Tension.
