RAVE! Lakmé Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush Day Blushes

"Dear Benefit Coralista & Nars Orgasm,
You've got competition. It looks prettier than you, and it's price tag is more likable than yours."
About Lakmé Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush: Luxurious powder blush, baked on Italian terracotta tiles enriched with Jojoba Oil, Antioxidant Vitamin E for an extraordinary luminosity. Apply Dry for a sheer effect or wet for a long-lasting, dramatic look. Fragrance free.


I love the packaging. It's sleek, light & portable
I didn't get any of these blushes as soon as they were launched, mainly because I find that baked blushes & eyeshadows become hard after sometime (Bourjois). But I swatched it at Shopper's Stop, and was so amazed! It's soft & super pigmented, and the color is....ahhh, I love it! I'd say it's somewhat a watermelon pink (?) with micro shimmer that don't really show on the cheeks but they do add some sheen. It's a tiny little thing, but you only need a little bit every time, coz it's so pigmented.
When applied wet, it looks like a cheek stain & still blends easily.
Lasts all day long! 
Swatches: Middle- heavy, Sides- light
You'll see it on my full face in an upcoming LOTD. You'll see what I mean ;)
 *Updated: 
* I wore it here *

Compared to MAC Fleur Power: It is deeper & has shimmer, while Fleur Power is lighter & pinker with a matte finish.
I just wish these blushes had proper names. I don't like all the Day Sheer, Night Sheen, Night Sparkle.... I had a hard time trying to figure out the name of this one, because the names aren't printed on the bottom of the packaging either.
"Okay. Benefit Coralista & Nars Orgasm, you win in the name category."

Price ~ I got it for Rs.550 from Shopper's Stop. But I see it's cheaper online.
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5

What do you think of this shade?

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! :)
