The iconic designer Sabyasachi and the iconic beauty brand Lakmé has come together once again to create Illuminate 2.0, a range designed to create looks that celebrate the glamour of shimmer. This range is all about luminous make up and includes the Illuminating Foundation, 4 new metallic shades of the Shine Line, the Sun-Kissed Bronzer, Moon-Lit Highlighter and Illuminating Shimmer Bricks. I was sent some of the products from this range to try out and in this post, will finally share my thoughts on the new Lakmé Absolute Illuminate Range.
I, for one, have been a Lakme CC Cream loyalist from the last year or so, and found it to be more effective than the contemporaries flooding the market. I would normally use it with a tiny blob of moisturizer (read MAC Strobe Cream), and it would instantly perk my face up, give it a natural sheen without going dry or patchy. That was then. Now, with the launch of the new variant of the Lakme CC cream, the Lakme 9To5 CC Color Transform Cream and the very lucrative color transforming element added to it, I couldn’t wait to try it and figure out what more it has to offer .
Lakme 9To5 CC Color Transform Cream Description
Tired of using a bunch of different products every day to get that perfect look, what if you could have your fairness cream, moisturizer, sunscreen and concealer all in one seamless CC cream. It’s time to toss the clutter aside and make way for first colour changing CC cream from the house of Lakme.. Lakme’s first advanced fairness cream that changes color as you blend, to give a make-up finish. Instantly brightens, conceals, evens skin tone and moisturizes, freshens and protects.

The heat, terrible humidity and of course the constant coloring of hair has made it quite frizzy and dry. I was looking to get a hair treatment done when Moroccanoil got in touch and asked if I wanted to try out the new Smoothing Treatment using products from the Smoothing Range. I was told that the treatment is meant for dry, unruly and frizzy hair and my hair fit the bill perfectly.
In Kolkata, you can get Moroccanoil products and treatments in quite a few salons but the one chosen for me was Bridgette Jones Fashion Salon. The process started off with the expert giving an overview of the new Smoothing Range, enriched with AminoRenew which restores amino acids into frizzy, unruly hair resulting in more manageable hair with a smooth appearance. She also analysed my hair and rightfully said that I have very dry ends and therefore the treatment would be quite beneficial. The following products were used :
- Moroccanoil Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner ( Rs 1800) – AminoRenew ingredient aligns hair’s keratin structure. Smoothes hair from the inside out. Color-safe, sulfate, phosphate and paraben-free.
- Moroccanoil Treatment ( Rs 1800) – The essential foundation for all hair types. A versatile styler that can be used for conditioning, styling and finishing. Fast-absorbing, antioxidant argan oil-infused formula transforms hair to become shiny, smooth and manageable. Speeds up drying time.
- Moroccanoil Smoothing Mask ( Rs 2790) – Concentrated argan butter formula. Intensely conditions to set the stage for smooth styling. Improves elasticity.
