Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Blush Day Blush

The Boy has a theory about me. He says, my moods change through the day depending on what im wearing. According to Mr.Freud here, he says im the nicest and cutest when i change into my snuggly  pyjamas (hence anything he knows might piss me off is revealed only once the pyjamas come on) . He says I put on the ‘Dont Mess with me or ill bite your head‘ mode as soon as there’s lipstick on my lips (He tries to stay away then ),  and I turn preachy and goody-goody as soon as my specs are on my eyes. No Idea how he managed to conclude all of that , but according to me the only product that really is  a mood changer for me is the Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Blush: Day Blush . The minute this sweet, innocent pink hits your cheek you cant help but feel yr floating in the sky all the way  to pretty-land.

Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Day Blush is a soft, peachy pink that really is what fairytales are made of. A dusty,  sweet, cloudy pink thats super flattering on pretty much all skintones. If you are darker than NC 45 , you may want to test whether this ends up looking chalky on you, but otherwise it really is like India’s Version of Coralista . (Though i dont really see too much coral in it honestly, its more like a cloudy , soft pink to me, but Coralista is like that too). This has really tiny micro shimmer in a small amount, and though  they are completely invisible on the cheek, They do manage to give a very soft sheen which looks gorgeous .

Iv always said the Lakme Absolute Blushes are totally under-rated. In terms of texture this is really fine, and silky smooth which is a surprise for any sort of baked product ( Not like cakes and cookies , theyr soft and smooth but baked makeup products are hard as rocks). It blends like an absolute dream, it picks up color easily and the color is very buildable which is perfect for any blush. These last a pretty long time too. I get about 6 hours of wear with thid which is honestly the maximum i get out of any blush!

Price: Rs 550/-

Recommendation: The Lakme Absolute CHeek Chromatic Day Blush is an absolutely gorgeous, soft, cloudy pink that is  a must have according to me ! The texture is finely milled, and it blends like a dream. Lasts long too!

Hi I’m a follower of ur blog but this is the fist time I’m commenting. I like ur blog a lot. Great work.
I got this blush recently…though I love the shade, I find it difficult to apply it perfectly like u!! Can u do a small tut with this blush if possible?


mehak February 19, 2013 at 7:27 pm

Sure, will try but no special technique !


Marianne February 19, 2013 at 1:40 pm

Great review. I am from dark wheatish [ i don’t know how to explain it] and it looks soft powdery pink on me. i thought pink blushes were a no for me..they always looked garish pink. But this sits well.Though its a day blush it looks good at night too. I paired it once with only plum lipstick….i thought it would garish but guess what ….It brought out the plum on lips well !


mehak February 19, 2013 at 7:28 pm

Yeah smae here when i wear plummy kind of lipsticks with a hint of magenta/purple in em it works quite well


Vineetha February 19, 2013 at 4:50 pm

Hey Mahek… such a gorgeous skin you have… have you applied any TM or foundation here?


mehak February 20, 2013 at 9:22 am

Hi Ishita,
Yes mac face and body foundation!


Smriti Kaur February 19, 2013 at 9:27 pm

Mehak its really nice… how u add masala to a plain vanilla review and make it an interesting read, with your small stories included. This seems to be great blush with soft pink hue, but unfortunately can’t try it as its is not available here… But love to give it a try as soon as i can lay my hand on it…!
<3 keep up the great work girl…
