Lakme Glide On Eye Color - Swatches

Some swatches of the Lakme Glide On Eye Colors. These are amongst my favorite eyeliners & I first tried these when I had got them as a part of the wedding makeup kit. You can read my review of these here.

I particularly like Glimmering Plum, Henna Gold & Baked Bronze, but I am not sure if these are still being sold. I thought I’d put up the swatches anyway, since some smaller towns might still be stocking them.

From L to R: Baked Bronze, Silver, Henna Gold, Bridal Pink, Metallic Black & Glimmering Plum
In Sunlight - From L to R: Baked Bronze, Silver, Henna Gold, Bridal Pink, Metallic Black & Glimmering Plum

In Shade: From L to R: Baked Bronze, Silver, Henna Gold, Bridal Pink, Metallic Black & Glimmering Plum
Baked Bronze: a light brown shade with same color shimmer - this has a hint of orange to warm it up.

Silver: This is plain icy-silver. This is very nice for the corners of the eyes & I also like using this for the lower lash line especially when doing a very modern funky look.

Heena Gold: This is the most complex color of the lot - a deep olive green shade with a lot of very fine golden shimmer. I love this one - upper lash line or lower lash line - it rocks everywhere.

Bridal Pink: This is a bright pink. I have really no clue why I got this, it just makes me look like I have conjunctivitis. I think it will look nice on someone dusky.

Metallic Black: A charcoal, grey light black with a bit of shimmer.

Glimmering Plum: A burgundy colored eyeliner with an undertone of purple to it. It is quite unlike any other purple eyeliner I have seen till date. I think this is perfect for those with green / hazel eyes. The combination of plum with purple really makes green eyes look exotic. I love pairing this with Henna gold/Metallic Black - Glimmering plum on upper lash line, Henna Gold/ Glimmering Plum on lower lash line.

  1. haha..I just posted my review on these and then come here and see swatches!!!! LOL

    I didnt know they had silver in this range..I am loving Heena that pink one really good? I found that shade a bit weird...also how similar or different is glimmering plum n colorbar prunella ?

  2. i have henna gold, bridal pink and 2-3 more shades from the range that came out last. love the quality of these liners. bridal pink especially looks very unique.

  3. i looooved henna gold...and this bridal pink is beautiful too...generally pink eyeliners are not that pigmented but this one looks cool..

    loved it:)

  4. plum is pretty...i hav henna does come out on swatch bt hardly shows up on eyes..

  5. @HDL LOL!! Gr8 minds think alike :P

    Yup, they have/had silver. Bridal pink looks nice - but it looks really weird on my eyes - like I have been crying :P

    Glimmering Plum is a burgundy colored liner with an undertone of purple; Prunella is purple - no burgundy here.

    @Rima: Yup, these are very good quality liners.

    @Anamika: Even I love Henna Gold! Bridal Pink is pigmented - but I can't carry it off :P

    @Bhumika: Ohhh! Aww, too bad yaa, Henna Gold works perfectly for me & shows up well on my eyes - just like the swatch.

  6. I guess I'll give bridal pink a miss...Will check out glimmering plum next :)

  7. even i have most of the colors mentioned here.its a good buy :)

  8. hey tanz .... first of all .. belated happy b'day dear :) i had to rush to home town urgently so missed it ... love u dear and respect u for all your honest reviews :) may god bless you and all your wishes comes true :) Wishing loadsssss of good luck and health for you and your family ....

    now for the swatches :D .... i love and i have bronze but now i think i have to look around for heena gold :) its looking lovely

  9. wow! there are so many shades...when i was in chennai they only had three :(

  10. Which is better Lakme Eye Glide or Colorbar???

  11. The bronze and esp the henna gold looks really nice!!!

  12. I love these too. I have henna gold, baked bronze & smokey green. Unfortunately, like Bhumika, the henna gold colour doesn't show on me. And you're right, 3 colours - the pink, glimmering plum & another one - have been discontinued. I really wanted the plum one after reading your views on it :( BTW, how is the metallic black? Worth a buy?

  13. @HD: Yup, Bridal Pink is little weird. I think Glimmering Plum has been discontinued (thank god, i have a back-up)

    @IMW: Even I love these liners :)

    @Rashmi: Thks a lot, your wishes mean a lot to me, thank you for being so kind & generous :D.. I hope u like these liners

    @Abi: They have discontinued some, so maybe that is why

    @Aarthi: Honestly, I prefer these to colorbar - coz they are bit creamier - but that is pretty much the only difference between the two. You could go for either..

    @Simran: Yea, they are very pretty shades

    @Poohkie: Aww, try using henna gold smudged under the waterliner (on the lower lash line) might show up there.. I quite like glimmering plum, god knows why they discontinued it.. Metallic black is not really black, it is more like dark grey with a touch of shimmer - works for me as I can't wear black eyeliners (I look like a goth), this is the darkest I can go in black. Go for it if you need a nice shimmery dark grey liner.

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…
