Jordana InColor Luxury Eyeshadow - Review

What it claims:
  • Premium Pigments; Matte, Shimmery & Pearlized
  • Triple-Milled; Luxurious Velvety Finish
  • Long-Lasting Stay Fresh Color
  • Crease-Resistant Formula
  • Sponge Applicator Included
Price: Rs. 129 per single eyeshadow (2.3 gms)

Where: New Beauty Centre

Colors I have:
  • Storm Watch: Silver Grey with white shimmer
  • Creme Da La Creme: Warm Ivory with shimmer (I use this as highlighter on the browbone and also in the corners of my eyes)
  • Mimosa: Warm Peachy Orange
  • Sunset: Warm Copper with self colored shimmer
  • Cafe Latte: Matt light brown
  • Hot Cocoa: Walnut Brown with shimmer
  • Mocha Frost: Taupy Brown
Pros
1. The quality of these eyeshadows is very good, they are very finely milled and go on very smoothly on the eyelid even without a base/primer
2. The pigmentation is awesome! Unlike some eyeshadows which *need* a primer or else they won't show up, these are pigmented enough to show up without the primer too
3. Economical. Unlike most girls, I prefer to get eyeshadow singles rather than pre-defined palettes. I have noticed that singles tend to be of better quality and this gives me more freedom to choose and pick only those colors that I know I will wear.
4. The packaging is pretty sturdy and makes it very easy to carry with you. The sponge applicator is of good quality - but it is just an applicator, it is not so good to blend with. Also the small window on top makes it easy to pick out the color you need.
5. I have never experienced any fallout from these eyeshadows. There is a bit of creasing through once you cross the 4 hour mark of wearing these
6. They have never irritated my eyes or skin.

Cons:
1. Lasting power is an issue. Even with a primer, these last for only 4 to 5 hours. After which they begin to fade.

Will I re-purchase: Yes! I love these eyeshadows despite the lasting power of only 6 hours. They have a huge range in browns, are economical and great for daily wear. They are easy to carry along coz they are so tiny and so I generally am able to touch up on these every 4 hours making it easy to avoid the fading.

  1. hey can the mocha frost or hot cocoa be used as a bronzer, if yes, then this is a sure buy for me

  2. @Retnu: Mocha frost is a a little greyish purple mixed with brown - a taupe brown. It certainly won't look natural as a bronzer. Neither will Hot Cocoa as that a deep dark brown with shimmer. Jordana has a huge range of blushes that has a number of bronze / brown shades, I think you should try those as bronzers.

  4. Jordana is a very good brand. Their stuff is decent and they are priced very economically. I reviewed their blushes here: http://addictedtoblush.blogspot.com/2010/04/jordana-powder-blushes-review.html

  7. @Anks: I don't know how they compare to MAC, but I do like these better than Lakme and even Maybelline quads

    @IMW: The brand is rather tiny & easy to miss. That crawford market store is so congested at times.

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…
