Streetwear Stay-On Lip Color

What it claims: Well, nothing much. It does say a lot (actually it says nothing, on the package or on their non-existent website). So I'll hazard a guess here, and make the inference that Stay - On means long lasting and that is what they are claiming. I have the shade Red Current.

Pros: 
1. Really long lasting. A coat will take you through 5 to 7 hours (depending on how much you talk and lick your lips)
2. The shade Red Current is well a reddish berry colored shade. It appears dark berry in the tube and has very very very tiny, like microscopic shimmer in it, that really sets it apart. So while it appears matt in texture, it has a lovely shine to it that you just can't put your finger on! So you don't need gloss separately to put some shine in this.

Cons: 
1. They have a very small selection of shades, just 9, I think
2. This tends to feel drying on the lips after a while.
3. Dissolves very quickly in oily food, or lip balm or even gloss that is applied on top.

Price: Rs. 290/- (I got 15% off, actual price is some 300 odd bucks)

Will I buy this again: This is somewhat like a lip tint. Once applied it stays on for a few hours. & I like that a lot. Considering that it is not claiming a lot, this does stay on my lips for a good 5 hours. I like the Red Current shade and may re-purchase, unless I find something that lasts equally long without drying my lips.

Do take care to apply this to only completely clean and dry lips or else the color will not hold. Also this dries very fast, so you will have to be precise and quick in your application. And don't put gloss on top if you want this to last.

  3. @ Divija: I don't do pics. Frankly I don't have the patience to stop and take pics, adjust the lighting, upload them & all. I have a slightly busy schedule where i am working for about 13 hours a day.. So my posts tend to be short, spiffy and pics sourced via the internet. You are also unlikely to find me doing FOTD, or pics of the day type stuff. I just don't have the time to spend playing with make-up (yea, sad i know)..

  4. @ Rati: Really? In fact the opposite is happening here in Mumbai with Maybelline. They are almost always out of stock on something or the other. Streetwear seems to be doing fine tho.

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…
