LAKMÉ ABSOLUTE ILLUMINATE

This Summer/Spring collection of Lakme Fashion Week brought about a new trend on the runway – Illuminate. Illuminate by definition means something that has an inner glow that shines and sparkles by itself. If you are someone keeping track of international makeup trends you would have definitely followed up on the illuminate technique of makeup and its product.

LAKMÉ ABSOLUTE ILLUMINATE is a collection by Lakme where it has a got a collection of new face makeup with a lot of shimmer and shine. I am loving how illuminate technique is making its way in our lives and I really like the collection.

Lakme Illuminate Collection has –

  • 11 Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist
  • 3 Lakme Absolute Precision Artist Eye Liner
  • 2 Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette
  • 15 Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer

Gel Stylist is a set of 11 nail paints which are good to go with all your outfits.

The Lakme Absolute Precision Artist Eye Liner is a retractable pencil with a rubber grip from the Lakme Illuminate Collection. The pencil is shaped differently unlike most other kohl pencils. The texture is creamy and something between a pencile and a liner. Since it has a great finish you can use it in various ways. You can easily outline your eyes and give a little oomph your eyes in just a few minutes. it is creamy enough and does not bleed easily, once you have got the perfect color with a few strokes it does not transfer. The pencil glides almost perfectly and has three colors –  Burnished Brown, Emerald Green and Sapphire Blue. It is priced at 850

The Lakme Absolute Lip Shimmer is a new range of shimmery lipsticks from the illuminate collection. I always like shimmery lipsticks but I am not too fond of Lakme lipsticks because of a distinct strong smell they have. I find it in most of their lipsticks like this one too. These lipsticks are available in 15 shades and I am sure you can take your pick. These colors have a varied range of red and pinks. It is priced at 700.

The Lakme Absolute Illuminate Eye Shadow is available in two variants – Gold and Silver. This is the first time where Lakme has created shimmery eye shadow pallet and I would have them add on to a few more colors. Though I still feel the pallet has very wearable colors and you can use them for most of your outings. You might use them more for highlighting than for the shadow itself. It is priced at 995

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet Review

I am a hoarder for great scents so you can very well understand my love for The Body Shop products. Firstly let me tell you what a body sorbet is – Sorbet is frozen desert made of flavored sweetened water. If you ever had to apply strawberry sorbet on your body, it would feel exactly similar to the The Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet.

Recently I picked up The Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet from the local store. While I had to choose from the other flavors like The Body Shop Moringa Body Sorbet, The Body Shop Satsuma Body Sorbet and The Body Shop Mango Body Sorbet but since I have never tried something in strawberry scent I went ahead with this product.

Packaging

The product comes in a soft plastic tube with a flip open cap which is perfect to let out the exact amount you need. It neither sticks nor oozes out while travelling.

Texture

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet has a very soft liquid like texture which is very easy to apply and can be absorbed well by any type of skin type. You gently need to massage it on your skin for best results. It is very light and refreshing and seems ideal for summers or humid climate. It has a fresh strawberry like scent which is light and nice which stays for some time after application.

Although it does not provide enough moisture if you have very dry skin or if you want to use it for winters. It would have been better if it had little more hydrating powers and people with oily and combination skin could have used it any time.

I still feel it’s USP is the sweet and fresh strawberry fragrance. While application it does not smell anything away from strawberries and that’s why it seems to be my favorite.

Pros

  • Fragrance
  • light weighted
  • easy application
  • easily available
  • non oily

Cons

  • not hydrating enough
  • can’t be used in winters

Why should you watch Ram Leela – Nov 2013

 

After hearing all the cmparisons with Ishaqzaade you might also feel that the story line is a lot similar and so do I. But I can give you a few reasons why should you go in the theaters to watch this film.

Deepika Padukone has performed brilliantly as an actor. You see her various avatars and she has done complete justice to all the emotions in her character.

  • The Cinematography

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a master of colors and cinematography. He has proved it right time and again, be it Saawariya or Devdaas or even Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

  •  Song and Dance

Each one of us have loved the dance when we saw it in trailers Nagada Sang Dhol has become a favorite of every girl who likes to dance.

  • Ranvir and Deepika’s Chemistry

You will enjoy the intense performances by all and be charmed by their online chemistry.

I liked the film for the performances and the vibrant cinematography.
