I was looking for a blush that will just impart some color to my cheeks-not something that will make me look Chili-Faced. So I opted for Night Sheen-as one of the other two colors was way too shimmery and the another one was too pink to fit my bills. Night sheen is a close to an orange blush-with copper and gold sheen to it. Its not shimmery. If used sparingly-it just imparts what I want-subtle color to me cheeks-I especially like it because this color aptly suits my warm skin tone and looks very natural. Another feature I like about this blush is that the color is very buildable. With a soft blush brush-you can pile up the intensity or tune the color as you like. The texture is very fine-and no gritty shimmer is observed. Because of this-this blush blends beautifully. The pigmentation is not very good-which again I will rate as a positive feature-since this prevents going overboard with color! Overall, I guess my first tryst with a  baked blush is really good-although I didn’t buy it from high end brands. Overall-the Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush is the most pocket friendly and pretty good quality baked blush in town now. Grab-able? Yes!! /blush

1) The color Night Sheen would be a versatile blush for girls with warm skin tones-during the day-this will impart a soft color. For nights-the finish can be built up to that of a bronzer.
2)The texture is fine. This makes it buildable and blendable.
3) Has no shimmer-so comfortably day wearable. The hint of sheen will not look OTT-but will add that extra punch to the –err-not face /wahaha but overall look 
4) At 550 bucks-this has lesser price than any other baked blush available
5) No break outs observed after applying

Light Application

Building up the intensity

1)I wish there were more variants in shade available

2) There is a lot of fall out when the brush is swiped over the blush  /no

  14. Looks so lovely on you. I want to try the pinkish shade now...nice review

  15. The shade looks really warm and nice on you ! Nice review and pics ! But i have few pores wonder how it will settle into these or ... .

  16. Prachi: I think this line of blushes will be good-you can go for the color of your choice safely :) :))

  17. Sukanya: thankuuu sweety!!! :) :) :)

  18. Shummerlicious: Thaankuuuuu!!!! Well, you can first apply primer and then foundation with a setting compact. A primer-a good one-will even out the appearance of pores-and then you can safely blend your blush-I do the same when I have some unevenness on my skin :):) and hey you have a lovely blog :) :)

  19. I want this just cos the packaging is so awesome!! Lakme seems to be making so much improvement from their earlier boring products naaa

  20. Hehe-yaa-the packaging is close to MAC ones na??? but donot buy the spf 20 intense white foundation-its looks are most deceptive :(
