I like the fact that there are so many categories in lipsticks, for each color. But I also see that it is mostly dominated by foreign brands. There is no sign of Revlon or Maybelline.

So which of your favourites have made it to the list?


  1. actually I find the list rather juvenile, only between a handful of brands.

  2. U know i was just going to do this post..::)
    but now u have done it so let me give my unimportant comments..:D

    i am glad Shahnaz Kajal one..Mac studio fix powder is one of the best thing i got ..I am not rich enough to buy MAC goodies but this came out as an investment.

    In my buying list will be

    Loreal color pallate, Lancome mascara, Nude loreal lipstick..and eye cream too..and...lets forget it ..:D

    i will try buying some of the stuff:P

  3. @Adorable: That is true.. but then India doesn't have a lot of brands to start with the first place, unlike US & Europe.

    But I did feel that they could have included more "Indian" brands in a India list - but then it could also be a telling comment on the quality of stuff our companies make here, considering that only Lakme & Colorbar have made it..

    There are no herbal indian brands (Forest essentials, biotique, himalaya, lotus, SH, Aromamagic) in skin care - tht to me is surprising.

    @Anamika: Awww... I am so sorry! I guess u cld still do a post on this if you want to. I don't mind..

    Pls, yr comments are never unimportant :P... I always look forward to them :)

    Is Mac Studio Fix good for dry skin? I am wondering now if I should invest in one after finishing my Bourjois Healthy Mix.

    I too started to a make a list soon after I read this.. :D :D.. but then I saw the prices & decided not to :P

  4. I am not sure about the dry skin thing Tanz.i will check on the product if they have mentioned on it...but now when you have mentioned about the prices my list will have to be reviewed too:(

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. I use russian red by MAC and its a great color specially for fair skinned people, I wore it on my wedding also.
    bourjois has a lip pencil(rogue) that is the same color as MAC russian red and if you wear clear gloss over it, the effect is exactly the same.

  7. Its good that we r finally having such award things...glad colorbar made it. they do totally deserve it!!

  8. well , what should I say ? Colorbar liners are my personal fav . but only 1 complain ,, they are SOOO creamy that they finish up in no time !!
    Nice post tho :)
    I have been meaning to invest in MAC studio fix powder , after reading the list I'm more determined than ever :D
    Btw Tanny , MAC SF is good for controlling oil and great for oily skin .. even combination skin will like it but I'm skeptical about it working for dry skinned ladies :(

  9. I agree with Shivani there. They should have included more Indian brands

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…
