FELL THE FRAGRANCE WITH BODY WASH FT. BODYCODE

Hey Loves,

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! This is my very first Blog of 2019. Let’s start it with the freshness and fragrance all around.

Let’s face it, bars of soap are old school – it’s all about the body wash these days. When picking one out, it’s often the scent that seals the deal, because who doesn’t want to smell like warm vanilla sugar or Japanese cherry blossom?

Never underestimate the power of a superb body wash: The best of them can leave your skin softer — and possibly healthier — after a couple of uses. Plus, it can make you smell like a treat and even thwart body blemishes.

Grab your loofah (or, on second thought, maybe stick to your hands) and shimmy into your birthday suit — it’s time to take a second to treat your shoulders to your feet. (For the full body-pampering trifecta)

Let me tell you, I am a big sucker for Body Wash and Shower Gels!! I have tonnes of them and every month I love to try new of them. Recently, got my hands on ‘BODYCODE’ Body Wash which are so phenomenal.

BODYCODE Body wash enriched with natural ingredients deeply cleanse your skin and uplifts your mood with the experience of mesmerising fragrance. I was so happy that they are so cheap and economical.

I got three of them, and already tried them for two weeks. They smell amazing and you feel so fresh!

  1. WHITE LOTUS & TURMERIC SHOWER AND BATH GEL BODY WASH

This body wash is made up of natural extracts which effectively cleanse & balances skin without stripping and keeps your skin fresh & smooth. Nourishes & moisturizes skin, leaving it soft and healthy.

Upgrade your bath routine with our one of its kind Body Wash and get a big warm hug in the shower on a hectic day with lovely floral fragrance along with magical benefits of turmeric. I so loved the fragrance and the natural ingredients of white lotus and turmeric makes my skin feel so soft.

  1. LAVENDER & ALOE VERA BODY WASH

This body wash is enriched with natural ingredients of Lavender & Aloe-Vera will leave your skin feeling and smelling beautiful all day. Lavender eliminates nervous tension and Aloe Vera repairs the skin.

This is my favourite body wash. I personally love this body wash as the fragrance is so good and gives me a super fresh and charismatic feeling.

  1. READY TO BLOOM – 3 IN 1 HEAD TO TOE

Body Code Ready to Bloom “3-IN-1 Head to Toe” with 3 in 1 application – Shampoo, Face Wash & Body Wash Shower Gel with Chamomile Oil & Calendula Extract. It is formulated for both Men & Women.

Chamomile Oil & Calendula Extract helps in keeping hair smooth and nourishes the skin. A 100% vegan & cruelty free face product manufactured in strict accordance with international standards & is suitable for dry skin, oily skin & even sensitive skin. This is only worth Rs.299/-.  They are also available on www.amazon.in and www.flipkart.com .

Keep following points in mind while using a Body Wash:

  1. Body wash and washcloths go hand-in-hand:Using a washcloth will work best to get a good lather. Plus, it’ll help scrub away dead skin cells.
  2. It’s great for moisturizing:Bar soap is infamous for drying out skin, whereas body wash is better at moisturizing because many contain lotions or oils.
  3. But that doesn’t mean skip the moisturizer:While many body washes do contain moisturizers, most are not sufficient enough to prevent or treat dry skin on their own. If you suffer from dry skin, follow up with a moisturizing lotion within three minutes of leaving the bath or shower.

So, don’t forget to try these and stay connected loves.

 

 

 

BLEND OF DETOX- THEKIVALIFE

Hey Loves,

It’s been long we haven’t talked about something about health! So, today’s post is all about DETOX.  The detox juice diet has become very popular in recent years as an easier way to consume lots of nutrients without having to eat lots of whole fruits and vegetables.

Experts recommend you eat at least 6 to 8 servings of vegetables per day, which many people (myself included) have difficulty achieving. That’s where juicing recipes for weight loss can help fill the void. With a 3 day detox juice cleanse, you drink only juice and water for a period of time, usually for 3 days, to give your liver and digestive system time to detox.

During the cleanse, aim to drink every 2 – 2 ½ hours and try to be consistent. Skipping a juice may disrupt your blood sugar levels and cause you to go off the juice detox.

While I was searching something to make my tummy feel light, I got my hands on the ayurvedic products from www.thekivalife.in

KIVA make tasty ayurvedic shots and other innovative, delightful products to bring the goodness of ayurveda to millennials. Ayurveda doesn’t need to be boring! No jargons, no imported herbs or fruits, no shortcuts. All products are conceived, conceptualized and produced completely in India at state-of-the art manufacturing units in Hoshiarpur and Jaipur. All processes from sourcing of ingredients to product packaging are closely monitored by experts.

For a lot of people, it can be difficult to get your recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Detox juice provides that extra nutrition you’re lacking in your diet.

Here are the top benefits of a juice detox:

  • Helps you lose weight quickly.
  • Improves nutrient absorption.
  • Feeds good bacteria in your gut.
  • Helps lower cholesterol.
  • Helps detox your liver.
  • Lowers blood sugar levels.
  • Improves your skin.
  • Broadens the range of vegetables you eat.
  • Improves athletic performance.

I got my hands on various candies and juice shots from kivalife. The below are the products:

  1. WHEATGRASS DETOX SHOTS

Kiva’s Wheatgrass is a natural, Ayurvedic juice shot that helps in detox and immunity building. It surely taste yum and my tummy felt so light weighted.

Benefits: 
The best source of chlorophyll, aggregator of all vitamin groups, numerous minerals and essential metals like iron and zinc. Fresh Wheatgrass juice, Aloe Vera juice, Coriander juice, Lemon juice, Lemon peel extract, Honey – all sourced fresh from the foothills of Himalayas.

How to consume:
Ready to drink. No mixing required. Shake well and Gulp! 1 shot every morning (preferably before breakfast).Consume regularly for minimum 2 weeks.

Results

I tried Kiva wheat grass juice about a month ago and instantly liked it as it seemed all natural. Since then I have been using it every morning. I can feel its positive effects on my body immunity and general health. It also is better than similar other Ayurvedic brand products. Highly recommended for all age groups.

  1. LEMON HONEY CINNAMON SHOTS

Another amazing product I bought is this Lemony Honey Cinnamon Shots. It taste super yum and yes we all know the benefit of Lemon and Honey.

This combination of Lemon + Honey + Cinnamon has been the most popular ayurvedic technique in India for weight loss. The pectin in Lemon makes you feel full longer, while the cinnamon helps in digestion and breakdown of carbohydrates

Benefits:
Fresh Lemon juice, Honey, Cinnamon extract, Ginger juice, Apple Cider Vinegar
This is the first ever Ayurvedic product I have tried and fell in love! It’s been a month since I have been consuming this and it has actually worked well. I definitely follow a balanced diet but this works so well in curbing my hunger pangs throughout the day.
The great part is their travel-friendly size, I am usually traveling for work and carrying these shots is so much easier in comparison to the big bottles. I feel they are completely worth the price.

  1. FUSION JAGGERY CANDIES: CINNAMON & MASALA

Jaggery is known to be 50 times more mineral rich than refined sugar. It helps greatly to improve digestion, nourish the skin, purify blood and is great for treating respiratory issues.

Kiva Jaggery-Cinnamon Candy is a balanced fusion between the traditional ‘gud’ and cinnamon combining the comfort of jaggery with the richness of cinnamon.

Benefits: 
Cinnamon has a significant positive impact on blood sugar levels besides reducing risk for heart diseases and cancer.

How to consume:
Anytime, anywhere, anyday. Though it benefits the most if consumed after meals.
Also a great substitute to refined sugar in your daily cup of tea.As soon as I opened it I was so happy to have it as a candy form. Loved it thoroughly. It has a proper taste of organic Jaggery with good amount of organic ingredients.
I added it to my Chai and it has given a new taste at all. It is purely amazing and we can use it in any way we like since it is organic.

So, are you a health conscious person like me? Then go grab these packets of candies and shots and enjoy the taste.

HOW ABOUT ADDING SOME EXTRA FRAGRANCE THIS MONSOON- TRESCHO PERFUMES

After scotching heat, finally monsoon has arrived now. Season of love, joy, refreshment and lots of fun, and the other side moisture. The season of fragrance has arrived.

By the season of fragrance, Lets talk about PERFUMES!!

Scented oils, perfumes and other fragrances have been adorned by people since early civilization. Today, fragrances can be found all around, from scented candles, to all your favourite bath and body products. There are numerous reasons why people wear perfumes, but ultimately it boils down to the fact that they make us feel happy.

People are wearing fragrance differently too and perfume fits a more modern style of personal scent. Gone are the clouds of fragrance that announced one’s entrance and lingered long after one’s exit. Perfume tend to wear closer to the skin, which is bad if you want people to smell you across the room – or the street – but great if you are wearing them to the office or other environments where you want to enjoy your fragrance without offending others.

With the advent of mass-market fragrances, if you are searching for a unique, personal scent and indie then perfumes are the way to go. Talking about perfumes,  It has been historically used primarily for fragrance. It helps keep unwanted body odour at bay and ensures that you smell good throughout the day.

One of the main benefits of wearing perfume is enhancing the mood. Perfume helps lifts your spirits. You can also wear a perfume that reflects your mood to project it better. Whether you feel playful, mischievous, timid or even reserved perfumes offer many different kinds of smells for different moods. Select and wear a perfume as per the occasion so that you can get in the apt mood for it.

A dash of fragrance, can work wonders to your personality. Perfume can also be an important trigger of a happy memory one tends to associate people with particular fragrances.

Try and buy new perfumes every time you travel and wear them. The different perfumes will remind you of each vacation and help you relive those moments.

TRESCHO perfume was founded in the early 90’s. Their main aim was to provide affordable fragrance of best quality. They have non alcoholic roll-on fragrance oils. TRESCHO is also available on Amazon, Flipkart etc. There is no scientific evidence to ascertain the efficacy of perfume’s health boosting properties. You can use your favourite fragrance to beat your anxiety blues and lift your spirits.

The reason we wear fragrances, is to show off our individuality. With so many fragrances to choose from out there a person can truly be original in what they decide to fragrance themselves with. They can change the way they smell to match their mood, the occasion, or anything they like. One day they can smell like pomegranate and the next day, as their preference changes, they can smell like roses and musk and TRESCHO perfumes are perfect for any kind of fragrance and mood.

They have wide varieties of oils, deodorant and perfumes available at affordable prices. Recently, I got my hands on ‘MISS AMBER’.

MISS AMBER is an Oriental Arabic Fragrance meant for all women who love to explore the deep secrets of the arabic notes. The base of composition is formed of hot shades of amber wood and patchouli.

I am totally in love with the fragrance of this perfume.  It helps enhance the mood, which can keep stress and other anxiety related issues at bay. Rub Vaseline on your pulse points before spraying your perfume to make the scent last longer. Layering with a scented lotion in the same fragrance will also strengthen the effect of your perfume.

This one is a surprise! It is another therapeutic effect of perfume. Trescho perfumes can help you cure that nagging headache. So, the next time you wear perfume, remember that it’s not just making you smell good but feel better too. It can help you beat stress and cure insomnia too!

So, shop your hearts out this season. Don’t forget to have a look at the most amazing and affordable collection of Trescho Perfumes.

 

GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER

Happy Easter to everyone and hope all of you are enjoying the season. I know this New Year many of you might be travelling for a friend’s wedding, family trip and much more. Travelling often affects our skin. The issue of carrying makeup and cleansers must be a real task.

Cleansing waters have been one of my must have beauty products. Cleansing waters remove makeup dirt and grime without the need to rinse. Cleansing waters come in handy.

Talking about cleansing water I have tried many as it comes really hand and easy to use. Recently I got my hands on Garnier Micellar Cleansing water.

GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER

Micellar Cleansing Water removes make-up, cleanses and soothes with no need for rubbing or rinsing. No perfume. Hypoallergenic. Suitable for use on sensitive skin, including delicate areas. Micellar water is an easy way to remove make-up, soothe and hydrate the face, eye area and lips in 1 step, without rinsing.

Garnier introduces micellar technology in an all-in-one cleanser. Like a magnet, the cleansing agents capture and lift away dirt from the skin. No need to rub to remove impurities and make-up.

Quantity: 400ml

Directions for use: Apply Garnier cleaning Micellar water to a cotton pad and wipe the face, eyes and lips. No rinsing required. Just pour it apply it and it’s done.

Packaging: The packaging is a clear and sturdy see through plastic bottle. The bottle has a flip open cap which dispenses just the right amount of product.

My Experience with Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water:

Garnier Cleansing WaterThis product comes in a big 400ml bottle which is clear and the lid is pink in colour. Pretty and girly. The product itself is clear and the flip top cap gives out just enough products. This product apparently will give you 200 uses (it claims).I used this to remove makeup after work –instead of using makeup removing wipes. This water removed foundation, lip products as well as all eye makeup products but I use about 2 cotton pads with the cleansing water for my whole face and neck.

My face doesn’t feel dry or irritated after using this product. One of the best solutions to clean, makeup-free, skin is a clever multi-tasking product that works to remove makeup and cleanse in a single swipe.

About micellar water, it is a formulation made up of tiny micelles that work as magnets to lift dirt and impurities to leave skin clean and nourished. This product claim to thoroughly cleanse the face, eyes and lips without rubbing, require no rinsing after use, work to soothe the skin’s delicate surface, and deliver a refreshed complexion.I do not feel the need to rinse my face once I do not remove my makeup with the micellar water nor does my skin feel dry upon use.

You can straight away apply night cream or eye cream and hit the bed. If you like, there is no harm in washing your face with facewash. Do apply a moisturizer though.

Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water:Oil Cleansing Water

When it comes to removing makeup, the bi-phase Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water comes into its own. It’s highly effective at removing makeup and even makes light work of removing heavy eye makeup & long-wearing lipsticks. It’s quick and effortless to use and as it doesn’t drag or pull the skin, feels very gentle. It has a subtle floral fragrance.

Garnier ReviewOwing to the oily formula & the fact that no rinsing is required, I expected to feel some residue on my skin following use but I couldn’t. That said, my skin didn’t feel tight or stripped but instead felt wonderfully soft and I was able to forgo moisturiser. I wouldn’t use Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water on a daily basis but I’d certainly be keen to keep a bottle to hand for removing stubborn makeup.

Don’t forget to try both the products based on your skin preferences.

HAMDARD SAFI – THE BLOOD PURIFIER

Hey guys, how are you all?

I hope you all have started working on your New Year Eve plans like shopping, travelling visiting relatives and much more. Well, what about your skin, which is now more prone to sweat, makeup, dust and much more these days and due to all this has started to get those irritating acne, marks and pimples. Urgh! Who wants that?

These days I am super busy with my New year Resolutions and shoots. All these things have obviously affected my skin care regime which makes my skin even more prone to pimples and acne and that’s when my mom suggested me to start my day with two spoons of SAFI.She mentioned that it is easy to use unlike other skin care routines and treatments hence can effortlessly be a part of my hectic routine.

I am sure every one of you is aware of and must have tasted it at least once in your life. Safi by the trusted brand HAMDARD is a blood purifier and is available since many years and recommended by all who have tried it. It comes handy in festival days and especially when you need that natural glow on your face all throughout the day.

About Safi

SAFI (Arabic) is a masculine name of Arabic origin meaning “pure”-Hamdard Safi Blood Purifier is Unani proprietary medicine used for blood detoxification and improving skin glow and complexion. Safi purifies the blood from within by giving your liver and the rest of your body the support they need in eliminating the toxins that usually cause acne and blemishes.

Directions to use:

Take a steel medium sized glass. Fill in with water fully. Now, add two spoons of Safi in it. You can drink Safi either with water or with fruit juice. Drink it religiously for at least 3 weeks.

Packaging:

It is a typical bottle which is made of plastic. Due to blackish liquid inside, it appears black in colour though the bottle is transparent. There is variety of sizes available, the one I got is big in size. The new packaging says 21 days pimple free and glowing skin formula. It has a very practical packaging and hence can be easily carried around in your bag.

Personal Experience:

Often we have heard that all bitter things have sweet results. Safi is exactly that! Its taste is a bit on the bitter side due to all the natural ingredients it contains but when mixed with one glass of water I completely forgot about its real taste. It however tastes just perfect.

So, I decided to take this Safi course, and I can’t believe how Safi is doing wonders to my skin.

Safi claims to clear your skin and start seeing the effects in 21 days, it also claims to check nose bleeding, cures constipation, corrects digestion and  helps stay slim, what else a girl or a woman want in life !?

Most of the teenagers face acne problem now a days and rather than falling prey to cosmetics and treatments which claim acne free skin, I would recommend to use Safi skin tonic daily which cures acne from within. It goes to the root of the problem and solves it. It is not a temporary solution like other medicines and creams.

Using it for almost 17 days and most of my skin problems have vanished and I fell my skin becoming fairer.

Also, a light glow has been added to my skin. As Safi has blood purifying agent, so even if there are no skin problems it can still be taken to improve digestion. I no longer have any indigestion problems. Thus I feel good about myself.

So, what are you all waiting for lovelies?  Buy it now and get a pimple free and glowing skin in few weeks. Stay beautiful from inside and feel beautiful.

Hey loves,
How are you all? Hope you all set for the festive season around. So, recently I attended an event hosted by VLCC.

VLCC is widely recognized for its weight loss solutions and therapeutic approach to beauty treatments. Since I have any queries about my skincare regime and hair fall issues; I was too much excited to attend the event.

It was such an amazing afternoon well spent with like-minded people. Beautiful ladies from all across the city actively participated in the event and it turned out to be a great success. VLCC team was very cooperative and they answered our queries with patience and understanding.

All the doubts regarding the skincare, hair fall etc are cleared and they had an amazing aura to make us all feel beautiful.
The event began with a round of introduction where we introduced ourselves to the team and it was so good to see how people from different fields joined in the platform.

There were experts who could guide us on how to take care of our skin and hair. Many of us discussed the problems we were facing and the experts guided us really well about how to take care of the skin.
The Do’s and don’ts were worth knowing. We got to know where we were going wrong in our skincare regime.

We were also introduced to SPMU revolutionary makeup technology, Also known as micro pigmentation, is the color that is tattooed into the skin, creating make up that does not wash off, looks good, stays put and lasts for about a year.

VLCC HALDI & TULSI FACE WASH

Yay! Monsoon is finally here! Don’t you just love this season? I’m a big fan of the rains; I love everything about this weather, the breeze, the downpour, and the smell of the earth, everything!

Although, there’s this one thing that gets on my nerves, and that is, yes, you guessed it right- too many skin problems; acne, oily skin, dry skin, you name it!

I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve updated you guys about my skincare regime and this looks like the best time to tell you. We all know how rains can make our skin too dry or oily, no thanks to the humidity!

My skin is rather oily and the monsoon just makes it worse- I get undesirable pimples on my face that sometimes leaves back scars. I was browsing the Internet the other day for some good skincare products when I happened to come across this new herbal product from VLCC-Ayurveda Deep Pore Cleansing &Brightening Haldi&Tulsi Face wash.

I’m all about herbal products and well, VLCC, is definitely a trusted brand, so I decided to give it a try. Guess what, it’s absolutely great and did wonders for my skin!

What’s it about?

VLCC’s Ayurveda Deep Pore Cleansing &Brightening Haldi&Tulsi Face wash combines the benefits of haldiand tulsiin one tube.

Ayurveda says that Haldi has antioxidant properties that checks skin problems and give it a natural glow, while Tulsihas anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial qualities that cure skin infections, lightens dark spots and gives the skin a soft texture.

So, thank you VLCC for giving us the combined benefits of these time-tested ingredients in a single face wash!

Packaging

It has the usual VLCC packaging, i.e. a simple clear plastic squeeze tube. The label at the front and back lists every detail of the product. It’s travel friendly and easy to carry.

It’s available in two sizes, i.e., a 100 ml tube for INR 99, and a 50 ml tube for INR 55; easy on the pocket as well!

Ingredients

It comes enriched with all-natural ingredients like Rose water, Haldiextract, Tulsi Extract, Aloe Vera, Fenugreek, Mulberry and much more.

Benefits

  • Paraben Free & Synthetic Colorant free
  • Soap Free Ayurvedic Formulation
  • Herbal

How to use it?

The face wash is a translucent gel with yellow colored exfoliating micro beads with a strong herb like smell.

A pea-sized amount is enough for even the oiliest of skins. The micro beads dissolve during the massage and scrubs away the dirt, leaving your face clear, fresh and glowing.

The result

I used it regularly for a week and I was surprised to see its startling difference on my skin.

The bothersome pimples are gone and my face looks fresh, clean and feels soft! The haldi and tulsi truly works-even my dark spots have lightened.

This is one face wash that’s perfect for all skin types and daily use! If you have oily skin, then this one’s a must-try.

L’OREAL PARIS GOLD OBSESSION COLLECTION

Hi Munchkins,

Do you want a total new makeover just with a pair of LIPSTICK?? or that HIGHLIGHT on you cheek?, then I am sure you gonna love this blog for your new look.

So, recently I am obsessed with lot many beauty products and brands.

L’Oreal is a brand that keeps on coming up with new ranges and products every now & then. The latest is Gold Obsession Collection that includes 7 Lipsticks, 1 eyeshadow palette & 2 nail polishes. The teasers were enough to excite me and I couldn’t stop myself from swatching all the products the moment they reached me.

 

It includes –

  • 7 glamorous shades of lipsticks infused with 24 karat gold
  • The La Palette Gold, an exclusive symphony of 10 gold sprinkled eyeshadows
  • 2 beautiful shades of nail paint

The lipsticks reminded me of L’Oreal Color Rich Star Collection however the packaging of these lipsticks is gorgeous ! Gold & Black ombre with shade indicator in front. There are 7 shades including one gold shimmery one. Formula of all the lipsticks is smooth & sheer, with visible gold flecks. The texture feels very moisturising and the shimmer doesn’t feel gritty whatsoever.

G101 Le Gold – Its a pure gold shimmery shade. Can be used alone or as a top coat to add shimmer.

C601 Coral Gold – A bright coral orange, quite neon

P601 Rose Gold – Rosy Pink, a bit bright

R601 Rouge Gold – Warm Toned Red

RB602 Scarlet Gold – Deep Red

M601 Mocha Gold – Deep almost burgundy brown

PM601 GL’s Plum Gold – A deep plum

L’Oreal Paris LA Palette Gold

The palette packaging is similar to previous LA Palette with a sleek shiny black case and a mirror inside. The palette also comes with a brush which is a dual ended one, one side has sponge applicator other is a brush.

The colors in La Palette Gold are all shimmery jewel toned.

Texture is these eyeshadows is powdery with loads of shimmer. Some darker shades have good color payoff but lighter shades fail to show up on bare skin. I guess an opaque colored base would be the best way to make these work. I haven’t tried them on eyes so can’t say anything about the blend ability etc.

Until next time, love to all-  Stay connected loves:) Find me on www.instagram.com/thedreamctchr

 

MAKEUP REVOLUTION DUO FACE SCULPT

Hey beauties 🙂 How are you all doing? So I am here today again with a beauty review by MAKEUP REVOLUTION.

We hardly get good and affordable contouring products in India. I tried maybelline V Face contour kit which was way too light for me but had right tones. I recently got a chance to try out Makeup Revolution Duo Face Sculpt which is a large round disc with a contour and a highlighter matte powders.

The Duo Face Sculpt provided effortless contouring in one duo palette. An all over powder which is easy to blend that goes on matte, then you can build up the contour powder to add definition. Silky and easy to blend formula.

Packaging is simple and quite big. The Makeup Revolution Duo Face Sculpt c0mes in a round compact with clear lid. It feels light and fragile. The pan is divided into highlighting powder on one side and contouring powder on other.

Shade – There is only one shade. The highlighter is not yellow toned and has slight beige tones to it. This may or may not work for all skin tones. The contouring powder is red toned which isn’t the perfect shade for contouring.

Texture & Formula – Both the powders are matte which is amazing since I don’t like shimmery formula. The contouring powder is a shade darker than my complexion which is good since it looks quite natural on me. The highlighter powder doesn’t give crazy highlighted look to under eye area.

Formula is soft & easy to blend. I like how you don’t have to spend hours blending it into the skin. Only gripe is the warm tone of the contour powder which isn’t something a contour powder should have. It should be more cool toned. The quantity is huge and will last a long time.

 

This was one amazing product I recently had in my makeup bag. I bought it from www.nykaa.com

Also let me know what kind of reviews you would like to have me upon?

Stay tuned loves 🙂

LOREAL BLUSH REVIEW- GOOD OR BAD ?

Today I’m reviewing 2 shades from the L’Oreal Paris Lucent Magique Blush range – a vibrant fuchsia 02 Fuchsia Flush and a glowing peach 04 Sunset Glow.

These blushes come in a luxurious looking rose gold compact (reminds me of Dolce & Gabbana blushes!). The compact contains a flat angular brush and mirror. The Lucent Magique range of products is all about subtle highlights and bringing light to the skin.

Concurrent with that theme, these are highlighting blushes that contain fine shimmer that adds a soft glow to the cheeks.

I like the concept of the blushes and the 3 colors in the pan do look attractive! The shimmer is very fine, non-gritty and adds a soft radiance to the skin without drawing attention to pores.

Each blush contains 3 strips of coordinating colors in the same color family. The lightest shade is a pearly light shade which packs the most shimmer, the middle shade is a bit deeper with a more matte/satin finish while the last strip of color is the darkest color.

The strips are too narrow to pick up individual shades and the best way to use these is to swirl a brush around to pick all 3 together and apply to the cheeks. Be careful to use a soft brush with these because the texture is soft and a scratchy brush can dislodge a lot of powder from the surface.

Overall, I quite like these blushes – the packaging and the formula feels lovely and luxurious though the lighter shades could have better wear time. These are slightly expensive though at Rs 850 for 4.5 g!

02 Fuchsia Flush is a cool toned pearly fuchsia blush – very pigmented and fairly long lasting (7+ hours).

The texture was smooth but not as soft and velvety as Sunset Glow. The color is muted down by the pearl running through it and despite the vibrant shade, its not difficult to wear. Do use a light hand during application because this is very pigmented! Pairs well with pink lipsticks.

04 Sunset Glow is a golden peach blush – great for light to medium complexions though may need layering to show well on deeper skin.

The color reminds me a lot of Benefit Coralista though Sunset Glow is peachier and shows up much better on my skin. This is the kind of color that you can wear with anything, any time of the day and it just works with everything! Being a softer color, this did not wear as long as Fuchsia Flush but a decent 5 hours on me.

I liked the soft, velvety texture of this shade. Great color for the festive season and in general as well! Sunset Glow is a golden peach shade, works well with many skin tones. Although requires more product when used on deeper tones. This can be worn both day and night, and for any occasion. It stayed on me for 5+ hours.

Fell free to share your views loves 🙂
