Hi everyone! Last Friday, Lakmé Salon hosted me and 5 of my readers from Instagram to a lovely afternoon of pampering. I got a chance to meet these lovely girls and chat about all things makeup and beauty! Its always such a great experience to meet people who love makeup and who’ve been supporting my channels online. Lakmé Salon had offered a few of their pre-bridal services to us – the Lakmé Signature Manicure, Signature Pedicure, Glow Masque and Moroccanoil Head Massage. They had also arranged for some yummy food so we had a really nice time talking makeup, social media and the crazy Mumbai rains & traffic (always a hot topic!) over the delicious canapes, while the ladies got their services done.
Today I’m reviewing the Lakme 9-to-5 Weightless Mousse Foundation in shade 02 Beige Vanilla. This was a new launch early on in the year and to be honest, I did not like it one bit when I first tried it out. I’ve worn it several times since then and I feel a little differently about this product after some trial and error. Read on to know my thoughts on this lightweight foundation.
A few months back, I started a One Brand Tutorialseries on my YouTube channel and after creating looks using Maybelline, MAC, Natio and Clinique, I’ve done a look using all Lakme products. Lakme is the one brand that I’m sure every Indian woman has tried and its easily available across India. I really like the colors they come out with, be it lipsticks, eye shadows or foundations because their shades always work really well for Indian skin tones. In this video, I’ve created a festive look that would work for all special occasions!

This week’s discussion is all about lip liners! Do you use lip liners regularly? Which brand and shades do you like the most? I personally have quite a few lip liners (a ton of NYX ones though I use very few of them) and its hard to pick a favorite. But the one that I’ve used a lot since I bought it last year is Soar by MAC. Its the perfect dusty rose shade that adds just the right tint of pink and works pretty much with any pink lip color. I like to wear it by itself or with a sheer pink lip color over it. I’m also a big fan of the shade Spice, also by MAC.
Talking of slightly more affordable liners, I think Brick Rose and Red Alert by Lakme are fantastic and a must for everyone! I also love Peekaboo Neutral and Natural by NYX which are fantastic nudes for my complexion and very budget friendly!
Every season, Lakme launches a new collection with Lakme Fashion Week and this summer, the theme is Illuminate. The Illuminate collection from Lakme contains 3 new pencil eye liners, 2 eye shadow palettes with 6 eye shadows each and new Lip Shimmer lipsticks. I received a few samples for review last week and I tried out some of them in my Summer Color Makeup Video. I know many of you were curious about the lipsticks so here are the swatches and my thoughts on the products –
