Lakme Earth Rose Trio Blush - Review


What it claims: A palette of complementing earthy shades that are super easy to apply and perfectly buildable. The silky smooth highly pigmented formula allows for effortless, uniform application blending in easily for a gorgeous  glow. The three shades complement each other, to create endless options for defining, highlighting and accentuating features.

How to use: Use the lighter shades of Rose and Peach to highlight the apples of your cheek.Then use the brown shade in the hollow of your cheekbone to create the contours.

Price: Rs. 600/- (This is Limited Edition)

Pros:
1. The colors are oh-so-pretty & just perfect for most Indian skin tones. The lighter brown-peach has a touch of shimmer to it, while the rose & brown are matt. The trio works perfectly, whether used in the manner given above, all 3 blended together or else even each color separately. I like using the rose & peach mixed together, it looks like a very pretty summer flush.

2. The blush is very fine milled, pigmented and smooth. It blends very easily to a nice finish - no powdery looks here. The shimmer is subtle & makes the skin glow. Although I have dry skin, it glides on very smoothly & did not emphasise any driness.

3. It looks very pretty - the design, you almost don't want to use it for fear of spoiling the design.

Cons:
1. It doesn't last at all on top of a cream/liquid foundation. Used on top of my Ponds Tinted Moisturiser, it didn't last even 2 hours. The foundation just absorbed the blush. It lasts longer if I apply this over a layer of loose powder or else use a liquid/cream blush & then layer this on top.
 
Overall: I really like this blush. The quality is superb, intense payoff & the color is just amazing. Almost all bloggers are raving about this beauty - & the praise is well deserved. 

Have you tried this LE blush?

  12. @Retnu: I generally use cream blushes so they seem to stay on fine on Ponds TM, but powder blushes are a big problem! I agree, Ponds TM does seem to hate powder blushes :)

    @Anamika: I thght I was the only one having trouble with Ponds TM & powder blushes not getting along! :) I hope u liked the review, the blush looked real nice on you btw :)

    @Beautydiva: i hope u also end up liking the prdts I tempt u to splurge on :P

    @Sara: Ohh, too bad lakme doesn't even sell online. But i am sure you are not missing out on a lot :)

    @Rakshanda: Thanks! Almost all other bloggers have done hand & face swatches for this. I am just being a lil lazy & greedy here, but I won't being doing swatches, as this is LE & I love it too much to even waste a tiny bit on swatches. Sorry! :(

    @Amy: I hope u like it & buy it before it runs outta stock

    @Bhumika: Isn't it just so pretty to look at?? I love it. It'll work great, just don't apply it directly on a cream/liquid foundation.

    @Shoppingaholic: hey! thks for the award.. I'll def chk it out

  13. It's so lovely, no? :). T powder blushes stay well when you have powder underneath, so yeah definitely use powder before this

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…

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…
