Lakme Face Sheer Blush Sunkissed: Hey, Girls! I am back with another LAKME review. This is one of my most loved blushes for daily use. It is compact and tiny enough to fit in my makeup pouch and is one of the stars of my makeup collection.
It is priced at 400 INR for 4g of the product. Currently on sale for 300 INR on Nykaa.com.
My experience with Lakme Face Sheer Blush Sunkissed
The packaging is very cute. It comes in an almost round packaging with a lid. The lid is in gold metallic color. There are two main points in the packaging which are very creative as well as usable. The first point is that it has an inbuilt sponge on its mouth, just when the lid is opened. It, therefore, does not need any blush brush. The second point is that it has an inbuilt tiny mirror on the outside of the lid making it easy to look at you while applying with the inbuilt sponge plus container.
Directions to use:
After prepping your skin and putting on a bb cream or foundation and applying compact or loose powder, it is time for the blush. Apply this blush on the cheekbones as a highlighter and to the apples of your cheek as a blush. Smile well while applying this product for a fair and even application. This product is available in two shades – Sunkissed and desert rose.
As the name suggests the product is a sheer blush but also has a pinch of glitter in it and hence can double up as a highlighter. For the simple and elegant look, you can go for the Sunkissed shade which is my personal favorite. For the more dramatic look, you can go for the desert rose which gives a nice pinkish tinge to your cheeks.
Shade and Texture:
The Sunkissed shade is a perfect sheer copper highlighting shade. It would best suit wheatish to dusky skin tones. The texture is not too dry. It applies smoothly even though it is a powder texture. It is fairly well pigmented. I love the product ever since I got my hands on it. I did not find any flaws in this product.
This would flatter all the skin tones as it is a classic highlighting sheer shade. It instantly brightens up the face. It would amp up any look whether simple or dramatic and with any combination of eye and lip makeup.
A swipe of this product after office for that dinner date with a nice coat of mascara and you are party ready! This works best for college girls or for someone on a budget as it is very affordable for any branded drugstore blush which would also work as a highlighter.
The staying power is fairly good for this product. It lasts for at least 3 hours without smudging. If rubbed vigorously it would stay for a maximum of 1 to 1.5 hours. It would last your party all night long if not rubbed much though.
Go for this blush if you want to use one product for both blush and highlighting. Experiment it with different types of eye and lip makeup combinations as this is one shade and type of blush with which you would never go wrong.
Maintain the direction of the strokes consistent while applying to have an even and smooth look.
Would I recommend it?
Oh Ya! I will definitely recommend this blush plus highlighter and it is totally worth the price.
The Colorbar body shimmer also is a bit similar but is slightly pricey than the LAKME face sheer blush.
Stay happy stay beautiful J<3
