Bourjois Regard Effet Duochrome Eyeliners - Review

From L to R: 62 Brun Mordore, 61 Vert Dore & 58 Noir Bleute
What it claims: Bourjois Duochrome Eyeliner Pencil (Regard Effet Duochrome) is an eye pencil with double reflections for a real duochrome effect. It is enriched with interferential pearls which change colour depending on the light. The high concentration in pigments provides intense shades for the eyes. The soft and smooth lead has been enriched with natural wax so that it glides comfortably across lids with the lightest touch, meaning that smooth lines are easily achieved on both the upper and lower lids.

Regard Effet Duochrome is available in Noir emeraude, Noir bleute, Violet rose, Gris perle, Vert dore, Brun mordore, Tilleul doré and Noir Bleuté.

Price: Rs. 280/-

I have:
  • 62 Brun Mordore (Brown/Peach)
  • 61 Vert Dore (Green/Yellow Gold)
  • 58 Noir Bleute (Indigo Blue/Black)


From L to R: 62 Brun Mordore, 61 Vert Dore & 58 Noir Bleute

1. The colors! Each liner is such a delicious combination of 2 colors with a lovely chrome metallic finish. The liner appears to change color in different lights as the pigments pick up and reflect light. These are very different from all the other liners that I have.

2. They apply smoothly without dragging.

3. Very pigmented liners, no need to apply or rub again & again. I suspect these would work very well as eyeshadows too, though I haven't used them that way yet.

4. They didn't irritate my eyes.

1. They last only for 4-5 hours. They begin to fade on me after 3 hours and pretty much disappear by the 5th hour.

2. Pencil based - not twist up. I don't like pencil based liners coz each time I sharpen them I feel like I am losing/wasting product.

Will I re-purchase: For sure! I love these because they are so different & unique from the regular single toned liners!

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…
