Colorbar Cool Eyeshadow Palette - Review

Some swatches of the Colorbar Cool Eyeshadow palette:

Price: Rs. 499/-

From L to R: #09 Smoky Grey, #19Quarry, #20Amethyst, #21Tealo & #22Blooz

In Sunlight- From L to R: #09 Smoky Grey, #19Quarry, #20Amethyst, #21Tealo & #22Blooz

In shade: From L to R: #09 Smoky Grey, #19Quarry, #20Amethyst, #21Tealo & #22Blooz

Quality wise this is exactly like the Warm Eyeshadow palette. You can read that review here.

But I do prefer the colors in this palette a lot than the warm palette as they show up & look better on me. That is probably because my skintone is on the cooler side as well as my eyes are greenish - grey (again cool shades/tones).

I also find these are slightly more pigmented than the Warm Palette.

My favourites are the first two shades: Smoky Grey & Quarry.


  1. that was a crisp review :)

  2. @HD: LOL! There wasn't much left to say :D :D

    Except for the difference in colors, there is little difference between the two palettes.

  3. hmmm..des wud suit m warm toned i liked dos colors more...

  7. yup ,waiting for tutorials from u tanveer

  8. @Bhumika: :D

    @Rakhshanda: Yup, I thght u wld like these as well. i notice that you do use a lot of cool toned shades yourself

    @Val: Yup, they are very holidaish :D

    @Nivedita & Amy: Thks! Yup, I haven't done a tutorial & sorry to disappoint you, but I don't think I'll be doing one in the near future too.

    I have a full time job & blogging is just something I do as a hobby, on the side. I really don't have the time to sit & make tutorials as of now during the week (I have a 13 hour work day on average, sometimes it streches to 17 hours) & weekends are reserved for interacting with family & friends (who hardly get any time from me during the week) as well as I need to do my household chores then.

    As much as I love blogging & makeup, I do have to prioritise and draw the line somewhere. I hope you understand.

  9. hey i liked the 1st two smoky grey and quarry, they are really nice

  10. pretty shades ..i don't go for metallic shades but love the pink on though....

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…
