Faces Pencil Eyeliners - Review

What it claims: Soft gentle pencils in a rainbow of shades. Use them to enhance your natural eye color for dramatic effect or give you that bright-eyed glow. Gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.

Price: Rs. 250 for a pencil (Beauty & More at Khar give 15% off on MRP, I got these from Pantaloon’s sale at 20% off)

Shades available (These are what I have seen; I don’t know if there are more)

1. Solid Black – plain black
2. Sparkly Black – black with silver shimmer
3. Solid Brown – simple brown
4. Metallic Brown – coffee brown
5. Forest Green – jade jewel green
6. Deep Green – dull dark green
7. Grey – matt grey (for a change, this is actually grey like grey should be and not silver toned. Most brands sell silver toned eyeliners under grey)
8. Purple – matt purple
9. Turquoise – deep blue green shade
10. Electric Blue – a bright blue shade


1. Very soft, - these are the most soft & creamy pencils I have tried till date. They are so soft it feel like I am using a cream.

Top: Turquoise Blue, Below: Metallic Brown

2. Long last, smudge proof – they stay & don’t budge. I have had these on for 18 hours straight during my cousin’s wedding & they just stay put

3. Priced very well

4. Didn’t irritate my eyes – even when applied to the lower lash & water line

5. It takes a few seconds to set – so if you are looking for a smudgy look – that is doable too. Just blend quickly after applying.


1. It tends to melt & smudge a bit if you are in the sun for some time (like 1-2 hours).

2. Because it is so creamy, it does tend to get over a little fast.

Will I repurchase: Yes! I initially got Metallic Brown & Turquoise for trial – they impressed me so much that I have gone back & got Grey as well. I really love these liners, so much so, that they are all that I have been using ever since I got them & disregarding my earlier eyeliners.

PS: Those of you wondering how these compare to Colorbar – IMHO, these are far more superior – they are softer & creamier, and much easier to sharpen as well. Plus they have a wider range of colors.

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…
