Lakmé Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush in Day Blushes - Review , Photos & Swatch

Since i saw the Lakme Absolute commercials on tv featuring lovely Kareena kapoor , i knew i wanted few bits from this line. Before i left for india, i googled several reviews and made a list of top three products i wanted from lakme absolute line. Unfortunately i couldn't find Absolute kajal any where in Chandigarh so i had to get the matte lipstick.I started using the day blushes as soon as i got it .

Lakmé Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush (Price : approx 550 INR) : Luxurious powder blush, baked on Italian terracotta tiles enriched with Jojoba Oil, Antioxidant Vitamin E for an extraordinary luminosity. Apply Dry for a sheer effect or wet for a long-lasting, dramatic look. Fragrance free. Capture that shimmering glow onto your skin with this luxurious powder blush that has been baked on Italian terra cotta tiles. Silky soft, it comes packed with the goodness of Jojoba Oil and the antioxidant power of Vitamin E, for an extraordinary luminosity.
Shades : Available in 4 shades 
  • Day Sheer
  • Night Sheen
  • Night Sparkle &
  • Day Blushes

First thing i like to mention is that it comes in a really light weight and travel friendly packaging . It comes in a round doomed shaped box with a transparent lid. The L logo on top gives a very classy touch.It doesnt come with a mirroe or a brush , which isn't a problem for me as i keep both in my makeup bag. The blush is a gorgeous mix of peach/pink and coral with fine shimmer. The texture is amazingly soft and smooth. It is not very pigmented , but it is buildable as it needs atleast 2-3 swipe to get good amount of color on to the cheeks. But if you are a begginer in makeup or a teenager who just started wearing makeup , it will suit you alot. The shimmer is not chunky and once blended , it gives a beautiful sheen.I usually don't wear makeup for longer hours but when i was in Chandigarh, India ,I used to apply makeup around 9 am and take it off 11pm.I was blown away by the staying power of this blush. It stayed on me all this time with very little fading away. When i first swatched the blush , it reminded me alot of Nars orgasam . But when i swatched few blushes which i thought were similar , it turned out to be quite a unique shade. Its not even close to Nars amour, which is a matte and much more pigmented and a totally different shade. Essence Babydoll is similar but lakame absolute day blushes is more pink.

*updated swatches since the above one came out really sheer , which was due to lightening .

Do i Recommend : A gorgeous blush, with smooth texture ,beautiful sheen and which lasts exceptionally long . If you can get your hands on this , i will highly recommend it. It will looks gorgeous on variety of skintones, But darker skintones might want to swatch it first before buying as it could look little ashy.
