Elle 18 Liquid Eyeliner




Ladies, I am in an very uninspired mood today, hence forgive the un-inspiring title. But I have another winner product for you.

It's the Elle 18 Liquid eyeliner. I tried a lot to find a picture of it on the net, but the company seems to be aiming for anonymity. All I could find is a picture of their nail paint bottles and I have pasted the same, coz the eyeliner comes in a very very similar bottle. Don't worry about the two sinister looking curtains, they are there for a reason explained below.

The eyeliner is available in very cool shades of bronze, a cool sparkly aqua green (looks lovely at night - look at the cloth above to give you an idea of the shade), charcoal grey (black, but not intense black, goes well with my light eyes) and sparkly magenta (which I have to admit I am a little afraid to try - again look at sample cloth). But the other three I guarantee you are winners. Bronze is a shade I particularly love because it makes eyes of any color (other than black) look great. The charcoal grey is a god-send for me, as I cannot use black eyeliners because of my green eyes. I look really fierce (ok, "bitchy") in it, and not in a good way. The Black is dark enough to look wow on me without providing bitchiness. The Aqua shade is for you to play around with. It is such a fun color to use at night on a girl's night out.

The eyeliners are water-proof and last from 9 to 5, it costs anywhere between 35 to 40 bucks (depending on where you get it from - this is something I hate about this product. Why don't they just print the price? Each store charges whatever they wish to) for a 5 ml bottle (which if you ask me is quite a lot since each lid application takes on a very minute amount).

It dries in a few seconds and the applicator is very nice, if your technique is good. It delivers both a fine line and a thick line.

This is by far my favorite liquid liner.

  2. Same here.. But it is getting very difficult to source their products..

    There are no elle 18 counters in most stores, you will find them only in local beauty stores, where they are kept on dusty shelves. These stores carry very little inventory of this line, mostly only nail paints & eyeliners..

    I cannot find anything else.. It almost seems like elder sister Lakme has forgotten about elle-18 which is getting the Cinderella treatment..

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.



Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.


For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
