Balm my Lips - Review of Biotique Sunflower Lip Balm

Winter is here, with it's dry weather and cold winds.. It's time sweethearts to balm your lips!!

If there is one thing that seems to signify innocence it is the lip balm. Although the people at "Addicted To Lip balm" ( have you think otherwise.

According to them, lip balm is as dangerous as pot..
Tinted lip balms are a rarity here. I have hardly come across any. While the counter girl assures me that the wonderful watermelon flavored lip balm will deliver all of the pretty color right onto my lips, nothing of the sort happens. it's like the color evaporates the moment it is exposed to the skin of your fingers/lips into an odourless vapour. (Edit March 2012: This post was written way before Ponds launched their tinted lip balms)

Pimply Days

Pimples, the scourge of mother nature, sent to bubble up angrily as a sign of all things bad. And no matter how I try to fight them, they rise from their comodones right before there are events to attend. I have to attend three marriages in the next one week and accordingly they have risen in drones.
It is time now for some remedial action and i turn to...hmmm.. well nothing actually. Nothing really seems to work on this sickos, frankly. I have tried multanimitti paste, Himalaya Acne & Pimple cream, Himalaya Neem face pack, Clean and Clear, Clearasil, Safi, Apricot / Walnut Scrub.. Blah, blah, blah.. Nada, nothing works. Nothing gets rid of the pimple, whiteheads or blackheads. The only solution is a trip to the parlour and shelling out 200 peas for a clean-up. Which as is obvious, is not sensible all the time. The only solution seems to be then, prevention. Which is Garnier Pimple Control Pen, or something similar. No don't go by the advert, it does not make your pimple go aw…

NYX Cream Blush in Red Cheeks - Review

Original Article (24th November 2008), for update scroll below: I have been looking for cream blush with the same intensity as that of a bunny looking for a suitable mate. I looked high and low, in Streetwear and in Lakme, in Revlon and in VOV. But it seems that all companies have decided that the powder blush is the way to go for us people.

Why the quest for a cream blusher?
Personally I think that the powder blush looks all very dollish and the 70s - JayaPradha. It's alright for use at night but during the day a cream blush is more natural and dewy. How do I know this? I have been using a lipstick as my blush for the past two years now with pretty good results, so I decided time to get the pro.
My quest landed me at New Beauty Center where I finally found --- Drum Rolls--- NYX Cream Blush... costing a whopping 500 rupees for 6 gms(gagging sound)..
