Revlon LipGlide in Sparkling Sangria


I discovered this jewel while randomly browsing at Alfa. The packaging says gloss, but when I tried it was this very rich colored gloss,unlike the lifeless colorless glosses I generally see. Most glosses are too pallid according to me. Or have too much sparkle and shine to them. But this one is a very rich bodied color with no sparkly little specks.

It is bold, it is strong and makes no bones about it.

Plus the packaging was very intriguing. So I got it.

This is a very lipsticky kind of Gloss. I mean isn't gloss meant to go on top of lipcolor? but this thing is so intense that it is like liquid lipstick.

What the company claims: Glide on full color and shine with Revlon LipGlide. Ultra-reflective micro prisms provide intense color application and glossy shine. Packed with vitamins C & E and jojoba oil for smooth, soft, comfortable lips. In 24 shiny, full color coverage shades.

Pros:
1. Very glamourous, very hollywoodish kind of color. Makes u look like a diva.

2. the gloss has amazing intensity to it so it gives off a deep rich color that is shiny as well: kinda like lipstick + gloss combined

3. the packaging is very very good. Prevents the entire product from getting contaminated - most glosses have a stick applicator that u use on yr lips and then it dips back into the entire product in the bottle.
It is available in this twist-up sponge tipped applicator tube that is easy to carry. You can carry this thing in your purse for days when you need to dress up to go out after office hours.

4. Staying power: unlike lipglosses that come off in a hour or so, this one has staying power.. lasts for 4-5 hours

5. Not sticky like normal glosses, but very moisturizing. This one will not dry out your lips.

6. High adaptable and suitable to both day & night wear..

Cons:
1. Well it is not exactly a gloss. It is not meant to go on top of a lipstick due to its intensity. You can put this on top of a similar colored lip-stain though, increases its staying power tremendously.

2. is a little expensive at 180 bucks (Alfa)

3. Have only seen this thing at Alfa. NBC does not carry it.

Bottomline:
I love this color. It is red without being too red or cheap looking. Looks really nice if you are of fair coloration.

You can also tone down its intensity by layering your lips with a lip balm and then apply a small dot on the center of your lower lip and spread using your fingers. This makes a nice lighter shade for those less adventurous but is a very fresh color that I think will suit all girls.

They also have a number of other amazing shades in this series like pinks, nudes and a lot of reds & maroons to suit everyone.

Do share your thoughts if you have tried this product!!

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 …

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…
