The blush looks very pretty, and I hope the lip palette is as good as it looks. The kajal too looks interesting

But I am also a little confused by the selection of products - essentially the very colorful eye quads. I find them too colorful to wear anywhere but to a wedding. There is just too much of purple, & I actually like purple, but this is too colorful for me. I would have loved it if they had also introduced a brown quad - with taupes, deep browns & greys to go with the entire earthy rustic look. 

All over the world major makeup houses are gearing up to launch makeup that revives the 80s natural look that was first introduced and popularized by Ms. Bobbi Brown. 

First we had Burberry launch with its natural look products, MAC too is gearing up with its Tartan A Tale collection which too comprises of soft browns and greys.  Maybe Lakme too could have added a neutral brown / grey quad in this collection, I would have really liked to try that out. 

So what do you think?


  1. I think the earth trio is a surefire is the lip pallette- not sure about eyeshadows..i dont get the concept of putting in blue/indigo, green, and beige all in the same quad..

  2. I agree. I think the lip palette looks awesome and they should have come up with an earthy quad to go with that.

    The collection looks good, but as usual it is overpriced!

  3. I am already loving the blush and now that u've mentioned it is LE I def want to get it...just hoping the pigmentation is goo..

  4. the blush looks interesting, but the things sure are overpriced, and guess what? hav been living under a rock- had absolutely no idea about this line!!!

  5. ya der shd hav been a brown eye shadow m lookin forward to d kajal..hope its smudge proof n long stayin..

  6. i got the sheer satin gloss today in shade 23. i loved the packaging so got it. i like the mirror at the top but don't know how it's supposed to be used because it's on the back of the applicator!

  7. love ur blog! hope u"l check out mine too :)

  8. @rima:hehe...weird lakme !!
    do tell us how d gloss was...

  9. Hahahaha...@Rima's comment! :D. OMG yeah now that she said that it is on the back of the applicator! wth?!

    T I agree with u about the eyeshadow quads...too jhatak lol!

    The blush looks so pretty in the pic


  10. @Mehak: It does look interesting. I hope it is of equally good quality. I agree with you on the eyeshadows. The entire point of putting colors in a quad is that they should complement each other in some way. Here they just seem like an assembly of shades.

    @Poohkie: Yup. The collection is overpriced, I want the blush but will think twice before shelling 600 bucks.

    @HD: Yup, the blush & lip palette are LE. Do let me know if you like the blush. Will wait for your review.

    @Simran: LOL, yup everything is again expensive.

    @Bhumika: Same here. The Kajal sounds interesting

    @Rima: LOL… typical of Lakme.. How’s the gloss otherwise?

    @Priyam: Thks :) I’ll def check your blog

    @CZ: I know, even I am quite liking the blush. But the eyeshadows are too jazzy.

  11. i quite like the gloss. it smells exactly like the starshine lipgloss but has a mildly sweet flavour as well. i think this is the first flavoured lakme gloss apart from those fruit glosses that came in tubes. the gloss is decently pigmented and very lightweight. not at all sticky. love the shimmer, it's not gritty at all. my lips do not peel or flake after removing the gloss. thumbs up from my side!

  12. wow..everything jus looks awesome..wil love to try out the kajal and the blush trio n also the lipies..

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…
