NYX Concealer in a Jar (Glow) - Review

What they claim: NYX Concealer in a Jar is a lightweight, emolient-based concealer that hides imperfections and discoloration naturally -- without looking caked on or clumpy. Super concentrated so just a little will do the job.

Ingredients: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Mineral Oil, BHT, Microcrystalline Wax, Nylon-66, Octyldodecyl Myristate, Silica, Butylparaden, Fragrance, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Ceresin, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/ Hexarosinate, Polyethylene, Sorbitan Sequioleate, Tocopheryl Acetate. MAY CONTAIN: Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Chromium Oxide Greens, Ultramarines.
 
Price: Rs 500 for 7 gm tub

Where: Beauty Centre in Mumbai
 
Shade: I have Glow (CJ06): This is a light shade concealer with a pink undertone. But I do remember that the counter had another 2-3 shades other than this. One was Tan or Beige I think with yellow undertones.
 
Pros:
1. Very creamy, easy to blend texture makes it a dream to apply on blemishes on the face. But it is thick enough to stick and not slide off the blemish.
2. This shade matches me to a T. I really like the fact that it has pink undertones to it. Most concealers have yellow undertones to them, which don't look natural when I apply them on blemishes and areas around the chin and mouth. They tend to wash me out. But this one blends in and looks super natural.
3. Despite appearing matt, it is not drying at all on the skin
4. Covers blemishes very well - esp ruddy areas like around the nose and mouth
5. Lasts long. The coverage lasts for a good 5 hours, plus this is also useful as a eye makeup base. This doesn't melt or shift easily in the heat, or even cake and crease.
6. Very tiny tub - makes it easy to carry when travelling out of town, and equally easy to lose as well :-P
 
Cons:
1. I am really not sure how this performs under the eyes, coz I havn't used it there. Actually I didn't get this for the under eye area at all, where I  prefer to use Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer (no 53) around my eyes as that way creamier (it is a lotion, almost) and very easy to blend and dab around the delicate eye area plus it is more pigmented and has a yellow undertone.

2. The packaging in a screw cap tub is not very nice.
 
Will I repurchase: Yes, but only to use on blemishes and on areas like around the nose, mouth and chin, not underneath the eyes.

  3. Hey great review!! I love NYX products. Hope this is available in Delhi coz it's not in DDun and if in Delhi I'll get it from there, it's quite near.

  4. @AOYV: Thks :)... I am not sure how this measures up to MAC & other higher end brands, if you use this do let us know if it matches to other HGs

    @Srish: I hope u have a good time in Mumbai.. For makeup you could visit new beauty centre and phoneix mills (lower parel).. For clothes & accessories, it depends on your budget & taste.. I find pretty good stuff at Inorbit mall in malad.

    For the undereye area I wld suggest u try NYX at the counter itself. I'm not really sure which amongst beige or tan will suit you.

    @Poohkie: :(

    @Rakhshanda: I think NYX is sold only in Mumbai. Hypercity in mumbai has a counter, maybe the one in delhi might have one.. Honestly I am not sure.. I can tell u only about Mumbai.

  6. I basically need a concealer for under eyes so this might not be the best thing for me.The packaging looks cute.And yeah this one is easily available on cherry culture but there aren't any swatches which makes buying it a big problem.

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…
