My Take Time : Sephora Hydrating Powder Blush in Raspberry Sheen

hey beauties !!! During my Hari Raya outing with my hubby (see pics here), I gave a short visit to Sephora KLCC :) I didn't plan to get anything but while having a look at the Sephora Color Wall , I immediately fell for this Sephora blush in Raspberry Sheen
So, here I am to talk about it with you lovelies :)


  • Well the packaging is nothing so exciting, except for the Sephora logo engraved on it.
  • Its retails for rm 49 at SEPHORA.
  • Its a beautiful dusty rose shade with silver micro shimmers.
  • Its not over the top shimmery but it gives a nice sheen and glow to your cheeks.
  • It has a smooth and blend-able texture.
  • The shade is perfect day time blush. However you can always build it up by layering for a glam night out.
  • Its well pigmented.
  • It has a long lasting finish. I have tested for 5hours out of which few hours was in sun and the glow from the blush was still there on my cheeks at the end of the day.
  • The only thing I complain is that Sephora don't have lot many shades to choose from. I saw just four shades at Sephora KLCC :(

Well its a HIT HIT HIT for me :) And I am surely gonna try the rest of the shades.

Lets Prepare : Gajar ka Halwa / Carrot Halwa

Gajar ka Halwa is a well known dessert in India. Be it any occassion or festival or just family time, Gajar ka Halwa is very famous. Its made out of gajar/carrot and milk. Its a yummy sweet and easy to make.

This recipe is for 10 servings

  • 1kg Carrots
  • 1litre Milk
  • 5 tablespoon butter
  • Sugar to taste
  • Cashew nuts
  • Cardamom
  • Grate the carrots.
  • Boil the milk.
  • Roast the cashew and keep aside.
  • Now take a pan and melt the butter on medium heat.
  • Add the shredded carrots to it and fry for 10 minutes. Stir in between.
  • Carrots should be tender and change colour to brownish.
  • Now add milk to it. 
  • Do not add all the milk at a time. Rather keep adding little in between cooking the carrot .When the carrot is soft and cooked, stop adding the milk.
  • Add sugar, cardamom and cashew and stir fry till the milk is absorbed and halwa is kind of semi liquid.
  • Now switch off the flame and leave it for 30minutes. This will help the halwa to sit well.
