June Favourites

First of all, thanks a lot for your lovely messages, I am feeling much better now. :-)

I quite missed blogging & connecting with you guys during the last few days, and with my energy levels rising I hope to get back to it regularly quite soon.

In the meanwhile, I thought I would share my June Fav products with you.

1. Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks: My current favourites are Nude Rosey & Soft Rose for day, and Raspberry for night. With Maybelline Colorsensation lipsticks almost at our shores I am waiting to get well soon and check out how they compare with Revlon (They are supossed to be quite similar).

2. Jordana Glitterama Eye Pencils: I quite like these shimmery, glittery eyepencils. At Rs. 149/- a piece, they are quite soft on the pocket. But use a base to get maximum wear out of these pencils, they tend to fade over time otherwise. My favourites are Black Bash (which is actually a dark charcoal grey - black with silver shimmer) and the Dark Blue one (Dark blue with blue & silver shimmer)

3. ELF Wet Lash Transparent Eyelash & Eyebrow gel: Look totally natural, and are great for the rainy season. No worry of smears.

4. Nivea Hydrocare Lip Balm: my new face balm! This one is perfect as a moisturiser on the go, without the greasiness.

5. Lakme Lip Artist in Terracotta: While the orange undertones in this look a bit weird on me, once I layer a pink golden flecked shimmery gloss on top - it makes the prefect pink coral lip color for me. Having been sporting this combo quite a few times last June.

So those were my June favourites, what are your favourite products this monsoon?

    I'm also loving lakme teracotta lip artist a lot too :)

  10. Hello Tanveer,

    Thanks for following notyourAveragebeauty! Most delighted that you visited my little corner. You are so lucky to have Lakme as it is hard to come by here in Malaysia so I am missing out on that. I am glad that item 1 and 2 on your June fave's are products that I have too! Thanks for the support and I look forward to being inspired by you.

  11. Hey,
    Nice to hear that you are feeling well now,
    and I am going to buy ELF Wet Lash Transparent Eyelash & Eyebrow gel tomorrow.Also, could you tell me where can I buy OPI nail paint in mumbai??

  12. hey! i just found your blog while googling about nyx blushes and i lovee your blog. new follower =)

  13. Hi..i just saw your blog...its really nice...i'll have to come again...

  14. That was a nice list Tanveer...Happy to hear you are feeling fine now... do get ELF at the Kandivali beauty outlet too


  15. @Rima: I saw the Fuchsia one - It is so pretty, but frankly I kinda chickened out at the color - too bright for me :)

    @Ki & Sarah: I hope you like them. Maybelline Colorsensation is also getting good reviews ;)

    @Anamika: Aloe vera gel? That's smart :).. you can even use hair styling gel actually.

    @Shoppingaholic: good for you, I tend to experiment too much for my wallet's good :P

    @Wanderlust: Thks :).. I dunno about Jordana in the south.

    @Palak: Thks :)... I like the lip artist myself - does not dry my lips.

    @JackieA: Thks :).. Trust me, you are not missing out on anything major if Lakme is not available :P.. For the few things they carry that are worth buying - you will very easily find dupes in international ranges :)

    @Suchitra: Hey! Thks :).. Do let me know if u like the ELF mascara.. OPI nail paints, hmm, yet to see them. Will let you know if i spot them anywhere :)

    @KayKay & Rakhshanda: Thks :)...

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…
