Rumour - Fact or False!!

OK Girls, I need your help! The other day while browsing the net I came across this site that claimed that Lakme Ginger surprise powder blush is very similar to NARS Orgasm (read it here)

I have never tried NARS, coz it ain't available here in India... but have read major raves & reviews about it.. If there is anyone out there who can corroborate this - rumour or fact, please let me know!!

Thanks All!

Update: As it turns out Lakme is the not the dupe. Wait continues.


  1. Ooh..this is music to my ears! Does look similar. Definitely going to check it out..Thanks for posting this Tanveer :)

  2. hehe !!
    tanveer I read the same review and got ginger surprise buh I can definately tell they aint same .. ginger surprise lean toward peach while orgasm is pinky - peach .
    even I dont own orgasm (NARS one ! OK ?)
    buh I have TBS golden pink blush which is also touted to be orgasm dupe and I find this lean toward pink .
    so my ultimate verdict would be _ NO, they ain't similar buh Lakme ginger surprise is unique enuf to own :)

  3. Tanveer, that page doesnt exist? It says so! If thats true, definitely worth-a-try :) i am kinda trying to compare those two, but where shall I? In my blog? is it okay?

  4. Guys! I was really excited when i wrote the post so i think i didn't give the complete link:

    @ CZ: Do check it out & let me know...

    @Palak: ohhh.. this is news to me.. so the body shop also makes a NARS dupe.. This just got interesting :D :D...

    @Divija: Yea! Yea! be my guest! pls go ahead & compare in your blog or wherever you feel like & let us know yr verdict!!

    As you all can see I am very excited about this entire thing!! :D

  5. Oh no! Ginger isn't similar to Nars orgasm!!
    Ginger is a peachy/golden blush and Orgasm is a very light pink.
    Orgasm doesn't suit on desi skin color. It's invisible.
    Ginger is a teeny weeny bit like Nars Taj mahal.


  6. @Litchi: Thks for the heads up that O is not too good on our skin tone - helped save me some monies :)

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…
