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)

♥ 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.
- 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
