MakeupVogue!: Lakme Lip Palette

MakeupVogue!: Lakme Lip Palette: "Choosing a lip color from a ton of colors, textures and brands can be a difficult and exhausting! Specially when you need different one..."

Revlon PhotoReady Compact Makeup

Revlon's much awaited Photo Ready Compact Makeup has finally arrived in India!!

The Photo Ready collection is believed to have  photochromatic pigments to provide a full but airbrushed coverage.

The Photo Ready Compact Makeup is unique in the sense that it a product in between a compact and a foundation.
It is creamy like a foundation but gives a soft powder finish like a compact.

  1. Available at all leading stores like ShoppersStop, Pantaloons, NewU etc.
  2. The creamy texture glides on the skin and allows room for blending
  3. The effect is that of a compact, with better coverage. The soft dewy texture feels good on the skin without caking up.
  4. Comes in good packaging, it has a liquefying screen that instantly turns cream into a weightless liquid. It also comes with a makeup sponge and mirror.
  5. Can be substituted for foundation for medium to light coverage.
  6. Comes in 4 colors (in India)- Vanilla- For very Light coloured people, Shell- For Light to Medium complexion, Natural Beige- Most suitable for Indian skin color- For Medium skin tones and Caramel- For Darker Skin tones.
  7. SPF 20, oil and fragrance free.
  1. Only available in 4 colours in India
  2. A bit pricey: Rs 900
Final Verdict: A good product, something new in the Indian Cosmetic Market. But not suitable for very dry skin (as the product makes the skin look more flacky on dry skin)
