Lakme Absolute Drama Stylist Shadow Duos Review And Swatches


Hey everyone!
Today, I am going to review Lakme absolute Drama Stylist Shadow Duos in the shade Pink Wink. Which is very similar to one of it's other variant which is Purple Haze. It is a pretty shade of pink, one is a general fuschia pink and one a deep tone purpllish pink. Both the colors are really apt. for a smokey eye look. I will do an EOTD soon by using this eyeshadow duo. I purchased it from Nykaa.com and it is also available on other online websites.


Lakme Absolute Drama Stylist Shadow Duos In Pink Wink

Price:- Rs. 350 for 3.5g
What the company claims :- An incredibly smoothoil and powder formulation that delivers intense color with a delicate shine.

Packaging :- It comes in simple plastic packaging , a round pan containing 2 shadows with a transparent flip open cap  and comes with a sponge applicator. I personally don't like the packaging because it there is no separate compartment for keep the brush and the brush is also useless. I will recommend to use your own brush to apply the eyeshadow rather than using the one provided with the shadow duos.


Pigmentation:- It is very sheer and you need a good 3 to 4 swipes to build it better , otherwise it is just a sheer wash of color and the wearing time is also very low , according to the price I  expected it to be better but it is very disappointing for me that the wear time is so less.
Swatches:-



Personally I don't like this shadow much and I think that I have wasted my money by purchasing it, in fact ingredient list is also not mentioned anywhere which is one more drawback of this shadow, but one thing which I like about it that it is finely milled and very smooth and soft in texture otherwise there is nothing much to say about these shadow.

Will I repurchase it ? :- No, I will definitely not purchase it , I am still regretting that why did I purchased it :P

Rating :- 1.5/5

Have you purchased Lakme Eyeshadow duos ? which is shade is yours ?

5 Best Beauty And Health Uses And Benefits Of Green Tea


Hey everyone!
Today I am going to post about 5 best uses of green tea. As we all know green tea is full of anti-oxidants and flavonoids. Green tea is also known as Camellia sinensis in scientific language and is made up from camellia sinensis plant. It is mostly prepared as a beverage and is being used for many years by people for it's health benefits and it is also extracted from it's plant for preparing medicines. green tea has lots of benefits but I have chosen 5 best uses of green tea which is very easy and healthy too.

i) Cures eyes puffines and dark circles :- If you have dark circles and eye puffines you don't have to spend a lot of money on under eye serums to cure it. You can vanish your dark circles by using green tea ice cubes or you can also place green tea bag on your eyes and let it sit on your eyes for 15 minutes, do it daily and your eyes will be full of life. It is very easy and yet very simple to do.

ii) Increases fairness and adds glow to skin :- Green tea is very helpful in increasing fairness and adding glow to the skin. You can consume it or you can also spray it on your face or just wash your face by it. You can also use ice cubes of green tea on you face. it also works as an excellent moisturizer. It cleanses,adds glow and also moisturizes your skin. 

iii) Prevents cavities and makes teeth white :- Green tea prevents cavities and plague. We all have seen green tea in the ingredient list of various mouthwash brands. It is totally true that green tea helps in preventing cavities and also makes teeth strong and whiter. If you want to use it as a mouthwash than you don't have to do a whole lot of thing. The thing which you have to do is to just brew 1 tsp of green tea into one and a half cup and let it cool and than use it as a mouthwash. Do it regularly and you will have strong and gum problem free teeth.

iv) Aids in weight loss and flat belly :- Green tea is full of anti-oxidants which help in reducing weight loss and the result is a flat belly. Green tea contains catechins which is responsible for weight loss. It also expands the life of heart muscle cells. Many nutrition experts have recommended two to four cups of fresh brewed green tea daily to assist weight management goals.

v) Beneficial for bones :- Green tea is very beneficial for bones and muscles. It has anti-inflammatory properties which helps in soothing arthiritis pain and also decreases the risk of osteoporotic fractures. Many nutritionist have said that it helps diminish bone loss through anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It also increases the amount and activity of bones building cells.

Lakme Absolute Face Stylish Blush Duos Swatches and Review


Hello everyone!
Today, I am going to post my first blog post of 2014, and today I am going to review Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos in shade coral. these blushes have two shades and the face stylist range is also available in 3 more beautiful shades of pink blush, peach blush and rose blush. The shade which I have purchased is in coral and the blush duo contains one coral shade and one light pink shade. I really really like the shades and the way it looks on cheeks is gorgeous.




Price :- Rs. 750 for 6g 

What the company claims:-
Give your cheeks a natural radiance with these silky powder formulation that blends effortlessly for  a luminous finish




Ingredients:-
Ingredient list is not mentioned which is a bit scary :\



Packaging:-
It comes in a sturdy plastic round case with an outer cardboard. I personally don't like the packaging because there is no compartment in the blush case to keep the blusher. they have only provided an outer cheap plastic kind of frame to keep the brush. This is very disappointing as I have used Lakme 9to5 and satin blush which had compartments for the brush.

Swatches :- 



                                        My Experience With The  Lakme Blush Duos
I really like it's color and one plus point is this that it is a blush duo because you get two colors by purchasing just one from the range and I also quiet like the color selection of all the blush from this range but coral shade was the one which attracted me the most and it did suited my skintone very well so thumbs up for that. But being expensive and pricey it doesn't has a good color payoff and for a good color on your cheeks even if you want a subtle one you have to swipe it 3 to 4 times so that it can show up, but after blending it looks beautiful. Both the colors will suit Indian skintones well. It stayed upon my cheeks for 2 to 3 hours and faded away with a little hint of color which I kind of liked. The brush which comes with it is very soft and really doesn't feels scratchy. It has very minute shimmers which are really not bothering and add a nice glow to the skin.

Likes:-
- Nice shades available
- Easily available 
- Has very minute shimmers
- Will suit most of the Indian skin tones
- Brush is soft and not scratchy on the skin

Dislikes:-
- Very Expensive
- Very less color payoff
- Compartment not available for the blush brush
- Ingredient list is not mentioned

Recommendation :-  Yes, I totally recommend it if you want a blush which give a very subtle color payoff to your cheeks.

Will I repurchase it? :- No, I am definitely not going to purchase it.

Rating:- 3.5/5

So, this was my review on Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos , hope you have liked it, have you purchased Lakme Face Stylist Blush Duos? Which shade is yours? DO share in comments.
