Lakme Just Kissed Cheek & Lip Tint - Review Update

Some of you may have read my earlier post where I completely dissed out Lakme Just Kissed Cheek & Lip Tint.

The other day I was going through the contents of my make-up bag when I perchance came upon this. I felt so disappointed since I had very high hopes from this product when I had bought it. Only to get very splotchy results.
On a lark I decided to give this another shot. And this time around I did not follow the given instructions of “dab in spots over cheek  and gently rub in”. Instead I took a tiny, small drop directly on the tip of my index finger, and rubbed it into my cheek apple.
And Wham, there it was the subtle, natural, rosy, pinkish glow on the cheek that Lakme had been advertising. I tried it on the other cheek to get the same results. This was on Saturday. Since then I have been using this gel with this technique every single day to get the same results.
Which makes this again “The best Blush I have ever tried!”  
The problem I think is that this gel sinks in just too fast, so by the time you apply it to the cheek and get around to rubbing it in, it has already sunk it to give you pink leopard spots.

& it also served as a reminder that I need not always stick to the instructions given by the company. They may serve well for make-up artists, but aren’t always the best for a lay-person.

  1. The best blush u've ever tried u say?? Then maybe I should try it too!

  2. @ CZ: Yea.. it is for me atleast.. coz I really don't like powder blushes. They don't suit my skin, rub off easily, don't last the entire office day of 8 hours and look un-natural in the humid, muggy weather of Mumbai..

  3. Btw, how is it compared to The Body Shop lip n cheek tint??? Haven't tried that either

  4. Hey CZ!! Sorry for the multiple comments.. Net went a little wonkers..

    Am yet to use the body shop tint for my cheeks. I just use it on my lips, and over there compared to Lakme it is much much better. It dries a little slowly, is more watery & easy to spread, gives a very even color and is very buildable in layers. Plus it moisturises. The Lakme one however is no good on the lips. It is blotchy.

  5. LOL ;) never follow the instructions, professionals shd not follow that either, accd. to me. If I were a prof. I wouldnt surely follow them. Thats wat makes u a prof. be creative in ur own way :)

  6. Yea Divija, u r right.. work out our own way of getting the best outta cosmetics is the way to go..

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…
