Lakme Fantasy Collection Cheek Artist - Review

I'm reviewing the shade - Kiss of a Rose

What it claims: Get those dreamy rose-kissed princess cheeks. This multi-purpose stick glides magically over your cheeks for a natural blush. Feminine and fun, these colors blend beautifully on all skin tones. Pick from Peach Blush and Kiss of a Rose.

Price: Rs. 395 for 6 gms tube

Packaging: Tube with twist up format, additional clear plastic cap inside.

Available: All Lakme counters as part of Fantasy Collection. 

What I liked: 

1. The shade Kiss of a Rose - is very, very pretty. It is a deep rosy shade with a hint of brown (it is excellent  for that English Rose kind of look - you know, like you just took a long walk in the country side) that makes it look very natural. Plus this is a matt shade - no shimmer - so it is great for daily office wear. The shade is a very universal shade for me - it would go with almost all eye looks. 

2. The ease of application - this is in a cream format & takes about 30 seconds to set - so one has plenty of time to dab on the cream blush & then blend it in. The formula is very creamy & easy to blend even for novices. 

3. Long lasting - the blush stays on for 3-4 hours, unless you have the habit of touching your face where you may wipe it off. 

4. As with all cream blushes - the intensity is buildable. So you can go with a light flush or a deeper tone by adjusting the amount. 

5. The quantity seems less - but it is not. It is 6 gms - the same amount as a NYX cream blush that is sold for 650/-. The length of the tube is a little smaller than a regular Lakme Enrich lipstick. 

6. Tiny compact packaging makes it easy to travel with.

What I didn't like

1. Application is a bit of an issue - I don't like applying directly from the tube as I have some acne these days. I generally get some on my fingers & then blend it onto my cheeks. 

Would I re-purchase: For sure. I love this shade. It is a neutral matt rosy shade  - it is matt enough for office wear, but pigmented enough so that it won't fall flat. The cream texture makes it very easy to blend it & the shade is a pretty neutral one - most girls will be able to carry this off without looking overdone. 

I was sent only this shade by the company, I liked it so much I thought of getting the Peach one also - only to find that it had a lot of shimmer. In fact it is a lot like Bourjois Lilas D'or #33 blush - a peachy pink shade with golden shimmer. Since I already have the Bourjois one I skipped the Lakme Peach. 

Product sent by Company / PR for review, this is, however, is true account of my experience with this product.

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…
