I received the product for review the day before yesterday and I just could not wait to try this :). It comes packed in the form of a bullet stick, which is very much similar to the Lotus Natural Blend 4 in 1 makeup stick. Only two shades are launched in this range, they sent me the shade “Fawn” which I felt is very much suited to my NC42 skin tone.

The Shade: “Fawn”, a golden beige color , which would suit most of the Indian skin medium skin tones.

The Texture:  Very soft and silky, one is left with a airbrushed kind of feeling. It is moisturizing and does not feel overtly oily on my oily-combination skin. Blends easily and is very light on skin. I guess it might be oily for people with very oily skin, especially in summers.

The Lasting: Lasted on me for an evening out, that is for about five hours. I cannot comment more on this because, I wore it only for the mentioned time period only.

The coverage: Medium, it is something which would lend a very natural look, and is n ideal daily wear product. It would not cater to those seeking heavier coverage.

The aroma: Nothing overbearing.

My Experience: I am impressed with its performance, this one is really good, apt to its nomenclature “BB Stick”.

It does, smooth out the overall persona of skin and minimize the appearance of pores to a great extent. The shade “Fawn” disappears into my skin to give me a very natural look, and at the same time covers minor flaws. Overall, a great product, especially for working women and students. The coverage is medium, it would not cover major imperfections.

Those who are concerned regarding the shade, I guess this particular shade would suit skin tones, above MAC NC 40. It is not so heavy in texture and very easy to blend, hence it easily disappears into the skin without any patches or un-uniformity.

Below, I have explained on its application procedure. I have applied this on bare moisturized face. Some product has stained my lips, sorry for that !

To apply, twist out the stick and swipe all over your face. Horizontally on the the forehead, on the bridge of nose, on the cheeks outwards and around the mouth.

    I was tempted to buy this. I wish they release more shades. Was the other shade darker or lighter than the one you bought?

  6. Ugh!! not for me….and especially when summers are here 😦
    But it suits you, and I think the coverage is pretty good……Do you think it will work better with a dusting of compact powder 🙂

  7. it does give a nice airbrushed look but I’m not sure if radiance will suit me 😦 wish they had introduced more shades..nicely Reviewed!

  8. Perfectly justified. Blends really well and not to pricey also.
