Review: The color selection is nice, the shades will suit most Indian skintones. I personally liked 129 (it's the peachy pink swatch right in the centre) & 664 the best of the lot. The other shades are nice too. Colorwise I like the selection, although it is very conservative and sticks mostly to terracotta shades. I didn't like the browns in this collection - but then I don't like brown lipsticks at all in any case.

Quality wise, these are just ok. They last only for 2 hours & fade away without any tint. They are also a little drying and if I don't use a lipbalm with this, I get chapped lips. The texture is creamy, while they glide easily on application - the overall texture tends towards a matt look, making these perfect for day wear. The purple outer packaging is very boxy & ugly.

Have you tried any of these? Any favourites?

These products were sent to me by the Company / PR for review purposes, however that has not affected my opinion of these products in any way.


  1. I liked the earthy shades, but I did notice that the colours stayed if I applied several coats. What I didn't like was that they fade badly... unlike the pricier brands. Know what I mean?

  2. Hi Tanveer, its too drying for my chapped lips. Have to apply atleast 3 coats for intensity but like you said fades out. Complete disater :( Lakme lipsticks dont suit me :(

  3. i love ur review Tanz :) atleast u do justice to all the stuff and dont mislead ur readers ...
    i m just fed up hearing all good here and there ...
    u r so right the lippes r too dry

  4. the shades are very beautiful..not dark..I love the pink peachy shade...i haven't use any Lakme Gypsy collection lipsticks till now but I love Lakme's other lipsticks which I have...I'm surprised to know that the quality of this collection is not too good.

  5. they look so pigmented but fade out in 2 hrs :(
    Not good Lakme

  6. I am totally off Lakme lippies and I think forever...same old colors !! just dont like thm anymore

  7. lol! me too liked 129! my next purchase is that!

  8. not a fan of lakme lippies..129 is gud though...
    I have 2 awards for u on my blog...:)

  9. I never buy lakme lipsticks as they never suit me and i end up not using 'em but the swatches of the new collection looks awesome!

  10. the swatches look good, but if they just stay for 2 hours, and dry lips, then not worth it :(

  11. Your lipsticks look good, whereas mine are all dented and squished =[. Lovely favs are 531 & 129 (I think...forgotten the nos)


  12. @SpeakingChic: I know! I too like the shades, but the quality is not very nice. They fade first at the centre, then at the edges & don't even leave behind a tint.

    @BeautyDiva: I can't wear these myself unless I use a lip balm, & I hate the fading myself. Love the colors so I try & persist :P

    @Rashmi: Hey! Thks so much! Glad u liked the review & thank you for your kind words :)

    Yup, they don't compare at all to Revlon Colorburst.

    @Rakhshanda: I don't know if the problem is only with this collection or the rest too, I have never liked lakme lipsticks. Earlier when I was a novice, I had no idea that better stuff existed & I thght these were amazing. Now after having used Revlon, I just don't like these anymore.

    @Sharon: I know! Pretty colors but not built to last :P

    @HD: I totally understand what you mean & why you feel that way. :)

    @Flamante: I hope you like it :)

    @Bhumika: hehhee.. Thks for the awards, i will chk it out :D

    @IMW: Yup, all pretty terracotta shades & very wearable :)

    @Retnu: They don't dry out so much if used with a lip balm, but then the lip balm causes them to fade faster!

    @CZ: awww! I thght only yr eyeshadows were spoilt by that nail paint spill! I love 129 too..

  13. what colour will suit me ???????
    my skin tone is yellow.

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…
