Lakme haul pics and a few swatches

Hi All,

Here are some haul pics and a few swatches of the Lakme Bridal Sutra Collection.

Bridal Sutra 2009

Eye Artist - Outline, define and intensify your eyes in one easy stroke. Bring out the artist in you. Create wings or bold, structured eyes. Eye Artist is a unique foam tip eye liner pen that gives you complete control and precise lining so you can experiment till you get that ultimate, dynamic look.

The color is intense black, the felt tip is nice and thin, and the color stays on all day. I was very impressed!

Glide On LIPCOLOR - Glide On is a lip pencil that glides on smoothly, stays creamy, and keeps lipstick, gloss, and lip tint from feathering out of bounds. Use it to define your lip-line or fill your lips with a coat of sumptuous color in shades of barely-there nudes to crushed ginger shades.

I got two shades Honey Crush and Rose Shimmer.

Honey Crush on Top, Rose Shimmer in the middle, Just kiss lip and cheek tint on the bottom

Just Kissed CHEEK AND LIP TINT - Just Kissed Cheek and Lip Tint is a revolutionary, new product that adds a pop of color to your cheeks and lips giving a freshly flushed look. The silky gel works into your skin and adapts to your complexion into the shade you blush naturally. Highlight your cheeks with a flush of color for that just-blushed look. Dab evenly on your lips for a berry-kissed look.

The swatch is on the pic on top (with the lip liner).

Enrich Matte LIPCOLOR- Enrich Matte is a lip color with super rich moisturisers combined with a silky matte texture to give you a natural, soft look. In delicious shades of nudes, peaches, roses and honey.

I got shade numbers - 662, 525, 526, 264, 127

Swatches below: 662 (top), 525, 526, 264, 127 (bottom)

Pure Rouge BLUSHER Pure Rouge is a pure pressed powder blusher that provides sheer, lightweight application. Color builds lightly layer after layer without heavy coverage. The natural shades delicately highlight the apples of your cheeks and add a warm glow to your complexion.

These are one of my favs, and a big surprise - pigmentation and texture are divine!! I got Honey Bunch(left) and Ginger Surprise (right). Ginger surprise looks a LOT like NARS Orgasm, but much peachier! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Next are some products from Bridal Sutra 2008 and from some other lines

Lipstick colors are: (left to right) 157, d117, d653, apple crush, taupe

Liquid eyeliner colors are: (left to right) Olive, Brown Shimmer, Onyx

Some swatches of the eyeliner: (left to right) Olive, Brown Shimmer, Onyx

Last we have Eyepot (cream eyeshadow) in Jade

The color and pigmentation are awesome again, but it creases like hell..this was the only disappointment in the entire haul.

Which are your favorite products?

I've actually never heard of any of these brands, but that Olive liquid liner is SO pretty!

Arezu - I should have added Lakme is an Indian brand, I have not been able to locate it in the USA.

thank god for you! i was looking for someone to review these newish products in the lakme range.

i have always loved the intensity and pigmentation of lakme eyeshadows, so i knew that the blushes wouldnt disappoint. but after this review, i am getting one for sure!

as far as the glide on lip colour is concerned, rose shimmer appeals to me the most.

i tried the lip and cheek tint at the lakme counter. personally did not like its colour.

the eyepot? well lets say i am not a fan of liquid/cream shadows.

black eyeliner? the one i have refuses to get over. dont want to buy another!

coloured liner? i have all their shades. love them!

lipstick? i have a couple from the other lakme ranges. love them to death. dont want more, though, at the moment.

thank you so much!

how do you like the lipsticks? moisturing? ive got very dry lips. so its hard to find lipsticks i like. the blushes look gorgeous. I'll have to find someone going to india willing to haul

They are surprisingly moisturizing compared to most drugstore brands in USA, but not as much as the MAC creme formula.

I love Lakme. You are so lucky. I've been searching like crazy too and I can't find it in the us. But I did find some companies ship at an inflated price. I'm lemming those lippies and blushes. Thanks for the swatches it helps a ton!

I love these. They don't sell them where I live (NJ) Can you suggest some dupes for the liners/lipsticks and blushes? Thanks.

lakme eye artist pen s one awesome product....u can use it for ur lower eyelid's jus stunning..but dnt use it on ur waterline...a pencil kajal could b used on the waterline n lakme eye artist pen could be used to sketch the outer layer of the lower eyelid! lakme eye artist s not dull unlike other brands...the color s really strong n it jus flows with ease...
