Lakme Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer claims-
My experience with the Lakme Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer-
I never tried bronzer before so I thought to get one which is reasonable and i can try my hands on. When you think of reasonable product the only brand strikes in my mind is Lakme. So I have purchased my first ever bronzer from this brand and no doubt there was an high expectation with this product. When I saw the product for the first time, on its outer cover it was written “limited by Sabyasachi edition” and backside it was printed in small size “Inspired by trends at Lakme Fashion Week”.
When you take out the product from the box you can notice that product comes in round black color compact with visible hard plastic glass on it. The packaging is very simple and elegant.This product comes in 2 bronze shades i.e lighter and darker one. When you open the lid of the compact you can see that it looks like ice cream waffle design embossed on it which look very attractive and the texture of the product is very creamy, soft and smooth. It is highly pigmented, well baked and rich in color at the same time super blendable.
when I first swatched the product on my hand i found it too pigmented and shimmery so was little worried that how it will go on my day look but when blended the product nicely the result was awesome. The lighter shade got dissolved into my skin texture giving glowing effect on my face and the darker one is perfect for the evening look for giving those shimmery contour effect. The best part is both the shades blend it so easily and quickly giving luminous and glowy effect on skin which can be worn at both the times (am and pm). You can mix both the shades for getting proper match to your skin tone and can apply below your cheek line (i.e. diagonally from ears to lip). As this product is creamy in texture you have to be very light handed on face otherwise you will end up ruining your face by adding too much layers of shimmer.
When applied and blended on face it has actually given me sun kissed glow, very radiant and luminous effect. Honestly, I am very happy with this product but still I have to get my hands on this product as being the first timer so that it can get my desired look. The product stayed up to 4 hours on my face which is lesser than I expected. This product is perfect for festive season or party wear as it has all the things to brighten your skin and making it look glowy. Also as marriages are round the corner you can flaunt your look with this amazing Sabyasachi edition with your heavy and shimmery lehengas and sarees or dresses.
Overall, I loved the product very much as it is reasonable as compared to other brands. For first timer like me who have to try their hands on contouring or bronzor can definitely try this out. As they are highly pigment be sure to go little first with your soft hand. I wished they would have provided matte bronzer somewhere in between of shimmers. The advantage of this product is as it is round in shape you can enjoy every bit of the product otherwise in the case of rectangular or other shape palette where few product gets wasted.
Also let me know your thoughts on this product.Whether you liked it or not? Any other point which you feel need to be added in this post/ Waiting to hear from you on this product.
