Colorbar Juicy Candy Gloss – A Review


I have Rati – who writes this wonderful blog called "Indian Makeup & Beauty Blog" to thank for this recommendation.
What it claims: Juicy candy lip gloss is highly recommended for those who want the ultimate shiny lips. Its ultra creamy formula with a skin conditioning agent gives the lips a soft and supple look. This deliciously irresistible lip gloss comes in 8 lip smacking flavors. So go ahead...treat your lips!
Price: Rs. 199 /- for a 9 ml tube
I have the shades  “Just Berry” – a purple looking gloss which applies clear with silver shimmer - looks very cool toned and “06 – Strawberry Twist” – a pink looking gloss that also is clear with pink shimmer - this is more warm toned.


Pros:
1.A great substitute for lip blam. They are very nourishing and moisturize while they shimmer away prettily.
2. Good staying power – they stay on for upto 4 hours.
3. They smell really nice though it fades away quite quickly
4. The packaging is very cute and they are easy to apply on the go.  No wands to manipulate. It is like a lip balm in its packaging.
5.The colors are very nice and make you look very fresh
6. Great as a top coat over lipstick or even by themselves as the glosses themselves are transparent
7. There are 8 shades in all – some have green (Guava) and even golden glitter (didn’t like those – range & Caramel)
Cons:
1. Like all lip glosses they wear off after some time
2. The  Pink “Strawberry Twist” and Red “Apple” glosses always seem to be out of stock here in stores.
Will I re-purchase: Yes, I really like these tiny cute little tubes full of pretty gloss. These are a no-brainer. They look natural but also make you look finished and glamorous. Swipe a little in the morning on your way to work & you look more alive and fresh. And the thing suits everyone, no matter what your skin shade. You only need to pick the glitter/shimmer color that attracts you the most.

These are unpigmented glosses – transparent with colored shimmer and a hint of fragrance. While in the tubes the gloss appears colored, on the lips it is colorless. So it a great day wear for just a hint of shimmer and wonderful as a top coat as well.

  1. Oh great! :) I have used a lot of clear glosses ranging from Lakme, Maybelline, and Revlon but this is where I stopped. Unlike other glosses it does not feel sticky and for a gloss I like its staying power.

    I also have in just berry. This colour attracted me the most. :P

    Glad you liked it and thanks for the link love. :)

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…
