Lakme Just Kissed Cheek & Lip Tint - Review


This is by far the best blush I have used

Correction:(24th August 09) This is by far the most natural looking blush I have used. This is certainly not the best as it requires skilled and extremely quick application. Further you need to either naturally porcelain clear skin with no acne blemishes (not me) or else a thick layer of foundation. So this is not easy to incorporate into a daily quick 5 minute routine. The blush is more of a stain and more often than not I ended up looking splotchy rather than glowing. The tint settled into my acne scars & made them more redder and even more prominent. Not exactly the effect i was looking for. I realised this after struggling for over a month with this tint. It worked marvellously when I had some concealer & foundation on my skin. But it requires a lot of deft practice &; quick strokes. 


Will I buy this again: No, I don't think so, since I don't use a foundation daily.

Review: (posted earlier) This is a liquid gel like blush that instantly absorbs into the skin to give the most natural shade that your skin takes on when you naturally blush. I think that this blush has some chemicals that react with the skin that result in blood being drawn up to the surface.

To apply dab small dots from brush directly on cheek. Use finger to spread & blend. Similar for lips.

Pros:

1. Absolutely natural color even if you apply excess it still looks real & won't make you look like a clown
2. Is water resistant and lasts for 4-5 hours
3. very multi-functional and can be used as lip stain
4. is a good way to bring life to your face in the rains. Plus it won't bleed or wash off.

Cons:
1. The packaging - the brush at the end is very user-unfriendly. It is useful only if you want to apply to your lips directly. I think they can eliminate that all together.
2. The price: costs 210 Rs. for a 9ml small tube.
3. Do not apply on inflamed skin, rashes or pimples - may cause stinging or react adversely.

Since the reason this thing works is a little shrouded in mystery, I suggest that you do a patch test before buying this. Visit any Lakme counter and get a trial done on hand. Wait for 24 hours, if there is no allergic reaction that it maybe safe for you to use this

  2. You wanted this to be darker?? I always feel that this should be a little less pigmented as it gives a rather vivid burst of color.. Too bad it didn't work for you and got over in ten days, My first tube of this is still going strong. Maybe you could try Bourjois - they have a number of tints, that might be dark enough for you. :)

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…
