Lakme Night Fever Lip Artist - Review

What Lakme Claims: Use these color rich sticks to define your lip line or fill with intense color. Enhanced with skin care vitamins for soft, smooth application. Take your pick of the hottest shades from deep crimsons to classic terracottas.
M.R.P. : Rs. 250/-

Pros:
1. They are quite soft and apply easily on the lips without tugging or pulling
2. Colors are intense, you just need to apply a little bit for the colors to show up and the pencils themselves are not as drying as lip pencils can get
3. They stay on for quite long - I generally use them to fill in my entire lip & top it with gloss. It lasts for a good 3-4 hours. Without gloss, I think it would last even longer.

Cons
1. The colors. They could have made some more lighter shades.  I have terracotta, siena and crimson.

Terracotta is a nice peachy coral shade, but on my pigmented lips it shows up as Orange (not nice), but once I layer it with a light pink gloss it looks really fab for both day & night looks.

Siena is too brown for me and looks muddy on my skin tone;

Crimson is a deep red, this is intense by itself. By layering transparent gloss over it I was able to make it look less overwhelming. Also this can dabbed on lips coated with transparent lip balm to make a light tinted lipbalm.

Lakme had some really nice shades in their Glide-On Lip color line like Rose Shimmer, Honey Crush, Hot Chocolate & Berry, which I loved (They have longer staying power than lip artist - but are also more drying). I would really like to see some similar shades in this line too.

Swatches: Cynthia of India Vanity Case has done some really good swatches here.

These products was sent to me by the company for consideration, however that has not affected my review in any way.

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…
