Bourjois Sweet Kiss Naturel 03 - Rose Sensuel - Review

What it claims: Bourjois Sweet Kiss Lipstick is a smooth formula that deposits a fine and radiant film of colour on lips. Enriched with lightweight oils and waxes, it combines polymers and argan oil for its emollient properties. It also contains a gel complex that ensures maximum comfort upon application and intense colour.

Price: Rs. 600/- (I have the shade 03 Rose Sensual) for 3gms

Pros:

03 - Rose Sensuel

1.  Long lasting: Although it doesn’t claim so, but the color lasts a good 4-5 hours.

2. Very lightweight on the lips, the formula is amazingly moisturizing and glides on very smoothly on the lips. No tugging or pulling.

3. The finish is really nice – sheer but buildable, just swipe on more coats – without any product buildup. The finish is almost glowy – not matt, but not shimmery either. Pigmented with a little bit of shine and gloss

4. The lipstick claims to be made from ingredients of 100% natural origin.

5. The packaging looks really nice, it just looks nice though. (see con below)

6. The shade I have 03 Rose Sensuel - is a mix of peachy pink shade that tends to go on more pink on my lips. It looks natural, yet polished thanks to the fact that it doesn't look heavy or textured on the lips.

Cons:
1. The silly “push button” to slide out the lipstick mechanism!!

I don’t understand why Bourjois makes simple things so complex.  I thought their blush had the most incompetent & obnoxious locking system (which breaks after a while), but then I met this lipstick. The first few times I tried using this lipstick, I literally had to struggle with it for a good 2 minutes, sometimes I even gave up & used some other lipstick that opens the old fashioned way. There is a learning curve here &  I have got the hang of how to slide the damn thing out.

But even then, Bourjois stop making your products Mission Impossible to open & use.

Will I re-purchase: Yes, I plan to get more colors from this range.

They are quite similar to Revlon Colorburst, but they are better in terms of moisturisation & I also feel that they last longer as well. I even like the shade selection – they have a lot of pretty English Rose type of colors to choose from as well as darker shades. I wish they would do something about the silly lock!

  9. Hi Tanveer,

    That looks like a pretty English colour. I love these kind of colours. I am not really a lipstick person, more a lip balm kind of person. But i like the colour and more so the fact that the ingredients claim to be of 100% natural origin. Will def have a dekko.

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…
