Lakme Tanjore Rush Quartet - Review

What Lakme claims: Versatile quartets of vivid, high intensity powders put together to color, shape and highlight your eyes in an explosion of radiant color

Tanjore Rush Quartet

Discover two new sparkling sets, Silk Route and Tanjore Rush, that’ll fire your creativity

Price: Rs. 425/-


1. Really pigmented shades. The swatches below are without base/primer.

2. Although the quad is not co-ordinated, all 4 colors are very pretty shades individually. I really liked them all, they are perfect for wearing to parties & wedding functions. I think they should suit all skin tones.

3. They stay on for about 2 hours after which they begin to fade little by little.


1. They are a little difficult to blend, their texture is a little different from other eyeshadows that I have which are a little more powdery & silky. These are more densly packed in texture than a powder. They tend to adhere onto the skin.

2. All shimmery shades - in my case this palette is not going to used very often, with the exception of the brown shade which maybe applied sheerly for office. Rest all are night time vibrant colors

3. Using a base/primer is must if you want these to last longer than two hours

4. The sponge tipped applicator is, ummm, well, use it only in an emergency.
Would I recommend this: Yes, if you are looking for vibrant eyeshadows to wear to parties.  I really like the smokey menhdi green the best. The other shades of gold, coppery brown & purple are nice too. In all a good quad with really nice shades that should suit all skin tones.

This product was sent to me by the Company / PR for consideration, but that has not affected my opinion of the same.


  1. the colors really look interesting...but for me this collection is a miss except for the blush n kajal

  2. @AOYV: Thanks! I too quite like the colors they chose - very festive :)

    @HD: Ohhh, the kajal & the blush are like the killer apps of this collection - everyone's gotta have them :D.. I love them too!

  3. i was about to buy it, but just gave it a miss, as i found it to be very shimmery...

  4. @Retnu: Yup these are shimmery, not for office wear, considering that most Indian women wear makeup only occasionally for weddings & parties - this is a good buy for them :)

  5. Lovely colors..i like them all. Thanks for the great review Tanveer :)

  6. beautiful colours and pigmented too

  7. the colors are striking.really bold and pigmented

  8. I love the purple in this


  9. @BeautyDiva: Glad u liked it! Thks. It is a pretty quad :)

    @Anks: Yup! :D Have u swatched these at the store?

    @IMW: Yup, they are. Perfect for those who love dressing up

    @Butterfly: They are :)

    @CZ: It is pretty! :)

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…
