Lakme CC Cream in 'Bronze'



Hello ladies! For that matter gentlemen as well, as long as they are interested.  *WINK*
Today I shall be reviewing LAKME CC CREAM.

When Indian markets were swarmed with multitudes of BB creams, Lakme came up with their CC cream. I have tried Lakme’s body lotion and honestly it made my sensitive skin irritated. After my acne was treated, my face skin became extremely sensitive. This is the reason why I usually skip on any liquid products on my face, be it moisturizer or foundation. But because I was too eager to test what is the difference between a BB and CC cream, so I bought it from my local market. 



This comes in a shiny hot pink cardboard packaging and inside it is the real CC cream tube. The cardboard packaging has every possible detail on it, from ‘how to use’ up to ‘ingredient list’. The CC cream tube is of peachish skin toned color with a shiny metallic look a-like screw up cap. One major drawback of this product is that it comes only in two shades-
Beige- for fair complexion
Bronze- for sun kissed complexion.





HOW IT FARED-

This CC cream isn’t actually a CC cream but more like everyday foundation with medium coverage. It has lingering fragrance of its Peach Winter Body lotion. It is easy to spread and absorb into the skin. It sets up into a dewy look foundation. But for summers it would start getting oily on T-zone within one hour, so a compact or loose powder is a must to set it. With compact it remained intact for roughly 2 hours (I have combination skin).




For trying out its staying power I kept it for more than four hours and it was the time when my skin began to get irritated. I guess it comprises of that same Peach body lotion which targets my acne prone skin. For normal to combination skin it would suit perfectly well for everyday usage. But if you happen to have sensitive skin like me, then be careful of not keeping it for too long.


Swatches-




RATING- 4 out of 5

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
