Why Lakme Pure Rouge Blusher in Honey Bunch saved my bucks on expensive Bronzers? Review,Swatches and FOTD

I can't emphasize the importance of a blush/bronzer in my life enough..Bronzers are the perfect way to get that summer look year-round. These products don’t really call attention to themselves when applied properly. But it only takes a couple minutes for them to add a gorgeous radiance to your skin. Lakme Pure Rouge Blusher in Honey Bunch is actually a blusher that would look very nice on dusky beauties,but on my skin tone it works well as a bronzer..read on to know more:
Company Claims:
Price vs Quantity: INR450/6gm

Shades Available:
Honey Bunch is a warm brown shade without any shimmer (though a slight shimmer is visible in the pan,it does not get transfer to the skin). The packaging shows it as a true brown shade but on my skin it shows pink undertones as well. The fact that it has satin matte finish makes it super wearable even during the day.

Packaging:
It comes in a boring purplish-maroon square case,with a transparent attached lid. It also has a brush inside which is hardly of any use. The only good thing is that it is sleek enough to fit in your every day makeup pouch that you carry in your handbag.

My Take: 
I personally love using bronzers and blushes. They give so much definition to the face.Bronzer is one item that can really make or break your look. It can make you look warm, glowy, and naturally enhanced or it can just make you look like a clown. A good rule of thumb is to just choose a color two shades darker than your skin tone. Any darker and you will be slinging mud on your face. Since Honey Bunch is almost 2-3 shades darker than my natural skin tone,I very conveniently use it to contour my face. It works equally well as a day+night time blush too.
And this is how it looks on me:


My Likes: 
  • A blush that would work on all skin types.
  • Works well as a bronzer/contour powder on lighter skin tones.
  • The texture is very smooth.
  • Blends easily.
  • The blush can be built upon.
  • Decently pigmented.
  • Stays on for 4 to 5 hours.
  • Gives a satin matte finish.
  • Gives definition to the face.
  • Sleek travel friendly packaging .
My Dislikes:
  • No mirror provided.
  • Brush is of no use.
  • No ingredient list.
Last Word:
My goto everyday blush,that I personally use a s a bronzer.

Repurchase:
Yup Sure!!!


Overall Rating: 4.8/5

    1. Dear,the shimmers are there only in the pan..it comes out pretty matte on skin. Sure it can be used for contouring,if U're fine with a bit of pink undertone to it.

    2. I can't say if it'll do the contouring job perfectly (might not come as deep a shade as required),but as a blush it wud do wonders on u...its easily available everywhere,check once.
