Lakme Fantasy Gold Dust Shimmer Bronzer - Review

What it Claims: Be born again as an enchantress. This pure-pressed bronzing powder kissed with a golden shimmer blends beautifully to flatter any skin tone. Sweep it once all over your face or body and enjoy a glamorous glow that’s straight out of a fairytale.
Available as 3 shades in 1

MRP: Rs. 450/-

What I liked:
     1.  This is a wonderful shade of bronzer. I am generally not able to wear bronzers as they either look too muddy or orange on me, but this is a really pretty shade of bronzer – it is a really nice shimmery light brown that will look good on most people
     2.  It has a undertone of shimmer to it – which prevents it from falling flat, most matt bronzers tend to look flat & muddy.

     3.  It has 3 shades, but I feel it looks best when all 3 are used together.

What I didn’t like

     1.  The big chunks of shimmer on top of the bronzer – they have been added apparently as garnish on top & a light sweep with a fluffy brush dusts them off – but also spoils the design on top.

     2.  It lasts for 2-3 hours on my face & slowly the color disappears leaving behind the shimmer

In Shade
Overall: Get this if you, like me, have a hard time finding bronzers that you can carry off. The price is right for the amount, & it does really look nice at night – gives the skin a wonderful glow. 

Product sent by Company / PR for consideration, this is a honest recount of my experience with the product.

  1. the colors looks really great, but I will pass it coz of the shimmer overload!

  2. hey tanveer do u use it only on ur t zone or also as a blush??

  3. @imw: I understand, the shimmer can be too much for some people :)

    @Shivani: Errr.. I don't understand what you mean by using a bronzer on the T-zone?? From what I know, one never uses a bronzer on the T zone, it is to be used the same way one uses a blusher.. The only thing I use on my T zone is loose powder to stop oiliness, using something this shimmery would just make me look more oily on the T zone :P

  4. I think it is better suited as a blush/all over glow powder than as a bronzer. I like my bronzers to be matte, because I mainly use them for contouring. But it will make a nice shimmery blush, for sure.

  5. I liked it..infact as it has three shade the darkest shade suits me the i use it as highlighter..

    reading yur review after a gap Tanz.Guess u r really busy nowadays :(

  6. Its so beautiful. I have never been to comfortable with bronzers. but I do use them for highlighting purpose

  7. @Tanveer-- Like you, I found the shimmer a bit too much. Would have liked more pigment.

  8. I was planning to give it a try... but reading various reviews have made me think, esp the overload of shimmer....
    Tanveer, which bronzer will you recommend?

  9. ohhh the mua at mac palladium had shown me a mac bronzer and she told me u can use it as a blush or over your t zone for a sun kissed look....I dont own any was asking...

  10. and the bronzer she showed me was very matte..not shimmery at i am confused.....will need to check on this again....:(

  11. I didnt really like this. Even after removing the shimmer i found it so shimmery.. Its such a shame because the actual colors are absolutely gorgeous...

  12. Hi Tanz,

    long time no updates?

  13. lots of i'll pass it.
    hey I just gave you an award..check it out!!

  14. Hi Tanveer. I have described you and passed on an award to you. Please check back when you can for sure

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…
