Lakme Cheek Artist Peach Blush Review, FOTD & How To Apply It


I've been using nothing but Lakme Cheek Artist Peach Blush for the past 1 week, and the verdict is in. 

I have used a blush like this a while back, No7 Blush Tint Cream Blush, which I adored. So this brings back good memories (of the blush and shopping at Boots in London)

Likes:
♥  Shade. It a gorgeous peach-coral shade with tiny gold shimmer that would flatter almost any skin tone
♥  It's very hard to overdo with this, because the more you blend it, the more it'll disappear in your skin.
♥  Blends effortlessly. It doesn't become blotchy at all.
♥  Stays put throughout the day, as long as it's not too hot.
♥  Although it's a cream blush, it doesn't feel greasy or sticky. It dries to a matte finish.
♥  Portable and fuss-free. No need for a brush.
♥  Inexpensive.

Dislikes:
-  Packaging is kinda unstable. The upper cylindrical tube that holds the blush came out of the base from the first time I tried to pull the cap.
-  Can't apply it on temples and chin (and nose) coz of the shimmer. Then you'll look too disco.
-  You need to layer it for the color to show. You'll only see the shimmer with just one swipe.

How to Apply: Smile and apply right on the apples of your cheeks (make round spots) and blend towards your hairline & downwards with fingers. Try not to go inwards towards your nose. That's where the large pores are, and because this has shimmer, it will emphasize them. Place 2 fingers (index and middle) between the sides of your nose and apples of your cheeks as a guide.


Daylight washed out the color out too much (on camera) so I had to take pictures in different lighting to show the true color of the blush.

All-in-all, I think this is a pretty good cream blush and hope Lakme comes up with more shades (and maybe prettier packaging....sigh.) It's available in just one more shade- Kiss of a Rose, a dusty rose shade in matte finish, which I'm getting next.

Price ~ Rs.395
Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥4/5

  12. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (http://www.geocities.jp/hongkong_skii/index_e.htm), enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It's a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth - particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had - even without makeup.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
