Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Review

Hey Friends,

I am back with another exciting review of Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Eyeliner!

I must say, its one of the reviews I have been wanting to post in a while but wanted to use the product enough to be able to share my opinion on it.

PhotoGrid_1472103371559

Lets begin with some facts first, this is a gel eyeliner from Lakme and i have it in the shade ‘Tempting Teal’. This was one of the most widely used product during the Lakme fashion week and claims to be smudgeproof and waterproof. You get 2.3 g of the product and retails at Rs.800. However, I had ordered mine from Nykaa website and got some it at discounted price of around Rs. 650. There are more shades in this line as well.

The packaging is really cute like that of a nail polish bottle and has a small liner brush attached on the top of the bottle. You need to pull out the applicator brush to use it.

Teal is my favourite color and I have been looking for a gel liner in teal for a very long time, I use the Chambor eyeliner pencil in teal at the moment and love it!! but being a gel liner fan, I was on look out for teal shade in gel liner. Looking at some gorgeous pictures of Tempting Teal gel eyeliner used on models during the Lakme Fashion week, I was awestruck! I had to get it…but this shade was always very difficult to find. Finally, I got it in stock on Nykaa

When I received the package, I was super excited! I open the package and got dejected!! That was because the color of the gel liner was sky blue in color!! and I was so sure that maybe I was sent some incorrect color. I checked the name of the package and it read ‘Tempting Teal’! I was like how can a sky blue color be called TEAL!

Finally, I picked some of the liner to swatch and it swatched TEAL!! OMG…I can’t express my relief and happiness! The reason of sharing this story with you is purely to confirm that though the liner in the bottle looks light blue in color…it swatches dark teal!!

The color is gorgeous!! totally true to its claim – smudgeproof and waterproof. Glides on like butter and stayed all day long. Though, if you look closely, it has the tiniest bit of sparkle particles to it. But that is what it gives the rich look. The sparkle particles are so small that you may not even notice them unless looked closely. So, definitely wearable color during day and in office.

Given the good experience with this product..I am really tempted to order other shades from this line. Its a bit expensive than other gel eyeliners in the market from Maybelline or Loreal..but I would say given the color range and the long staying power, its worth the money. And a little bottle goes a long way!

If you have tried any other shades from this line, let  me know your experiences too. Hope this review is helpful to you!

Lakme 9 to 5 Foundation Review

Hey Loves,

Apologies for being out of circuit for a while, was busy at work. But, here I am 🙂 with the Lakme 9 to 5 Foundation Review.

I was really looking forward to try this new range of Lakme – the 9 to 5 range. I have been using this product for a while and am loving it. Its a wonderful foundation for daily office wear. Its long wearing and most importantly, helps curtail the oiliness around my T zone 🙂

Lakme 9 to 5 Foundation PicsArt_1379666523940

Pros:

  • Provides full coverage – You can build on it for heavy coverage
  • Blends well – you can blend it by itself with a brush or beauty blender. I noticed, it blends well with a wet sponge/brush.
  • Completely soaks in my skin
  • Doesn’t feel heavy
  • Covers the pores very well.
  • Helps curtail oil secretion around my t-zone
  • Decently Priced – Rs. 450INR
  • Good packaging – loved the sponge packing inside the box as well as the matte bottle
  • Has a pump – that’s definitely a plus one for me
  • Travel friendly.
  • Long lasting – my face looked radiant for a good 7-8 hours
  • It is good by itself but like to seal it with a compact.

Cons:

  • It dries quickly, so you need to be quick at blending it on your face. That can be a pro as well…the way you wana look at it.

All in all, i loved it for a day-to-day routine foundation. Have received compliments at work stating my skin looks fresh and radiant when i had this on. And, it doesn’t give me a feeling of wearing a foundation at all…so that’s what i like about it the most…gets soaked in the skin pretty nicely.

Its definitely been my go-to product this last month. My recommendation, you must try it. Do let me know your experience.

Affordable Makeup – Lakme Compact Powder Review

Hey Lovelies,

Goooddd Moorrnniinngg!!

Its been a crazy rainy Monday here in Mumbai! So thought of doing something to bring a smile on my face by blogging 🙂

Does it kill you spending all your pocket money on expensive makeup and wish there was an alternative!! Well, I am gonna help there. ..I will try and blog around adorable makeup alternatives:)

I was actually looking for some affordable compact for daily use and discovered this! I loved it. ..for the price that it is (Rs100-120).. its total value for money!  🙂

So thought of doing a quick review on it.

image

Pros:
– packaging a small with a small mirror
– has a nice soft sponge for application
– has good coverage
– competitive price – good value for money
– brings good glow in face

Cons:
– can’t think of any. …but a quick tip would be. ..use it after applying some moisturizer on the face first. On my face,  if used without a moisturizer…it gets a bit patchy around the mouth area.

So give it a try & let me know if you are searching for some affordable alternatives for your makeup. ..I can try & blog about those.

Have a wonderful week ahead:)

Lakme Absolute Mousse Review

Hey Lovelies,

Here’s a quick first hand review of Lakme Absolute Mousse.

Likes

  • Good stylish packaging
  • Not sticky
  • Not greecy
  • Soaks like magic in the skin
  • Has sunscreen

Dislikes

  • Felt the quantity was less.
  • Gets a bit patchy if used in excess around the mouth area.
  • I have a T Zone. Didn’t really help conceal the oil secretion there, my nose area started shining half an hour after application.

For best results, do not use it in excess. Take very little and spread well across the face. Do not use a compact after the application of mousse. Its dry enough. Its a good substitute to a liquid foundation…something i wouldn’t want to use on day to day basis. This one is definitely a good product for daily ware. Feels very good on the skin.

Do share your experiences if you give it a try 🙂

Enjoy!

BeaushionDiva.
