Lakme Fantasy Collection Satin Enrich Lipsticks

Lakme has launched new Enrich Shades from 131 to 138 as a part of the Fantasy Collection.

Price: Rs. 225 /- per peice

Available as a part of Fantasy Collection

Shades: I'm reviewing shades 131, 137 & 138

What I liked: 

1. The formula seems to be better - they are more creamy & moisturising as compared

131, 137 & 138
2. Long lasting - they all leave a tint behind, esp shade 138. It stays for around 3-4 hours.

3. Priced decently at 225/-

4. Some of the shades like 137, 138 have a lot of shimmer - but this shimmer is very fine & it doesn't not travel all over the face. It stays put on the lips

What I don't like

1. No cribs with the formula - the packaging is a bit boring but am ok as long as the lipstick is affordable.

2. The shimmer is a little difficult to take off.

The shades:

131
Shade 131 - is a glossy barbie milky pink shade with no shimmer. However I need to use some foundation on my pigmented lips to help the true color shine through

137

Shade 137 - is a shimmery reddish orange shade. I don't like this one so much. It does look fun & summery, but this is just a shade that I don't wear personally.

138
Shade 138 -  Berry shade with multicolor shimmer. This is most def. an evening or night shade as it has quite a bit of shimmer. The color is very deep & gorgeous - it leaves behind a very nice berry tint. While there is a lot of shimmer - it looks really fab layered with clear lip gloss. This is my fav from the trio

L to R: 131, 137 & 138
Over Opinion: The shade selection this time is really nice & fresh compared to the regular old browns & brown tinted shades that Lakme is so famous for. Those of you who are looking for a change will find something that catches your eye. I think shades 131 to 134 are matt & the rest are all shimmery. The shimmer is very fine, but then not everyone likes shimmer in their lipsticks - so you might wanna consider that before purchasing.

Product sent by Company / PR for review, but that has not affected my opinion in any way.

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…

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…
