Revlon Luxurious Color Smoky Crayon in Bronze Smoke - Review

It claims: Smoky liner & eye shadow. Get a smoky eye effect with creamy rich color.

  • For smoky effect, fill in lid with crayon & blend
  • For a more defined look, sharpen tip with pull out sharpener. 
Price: Rs. 525 for 1 gm. 

Shades available: Only 2 in India: Bronze Smoke & Black Smoke

Available: At most Revlon counters. I recently bought the Black Smoke one from Urban Touch. They were pretty prompt & I got my parcel within a day of my order :-)

What I liked: 

1. It is a gorgeous color, perfect for office. It'll look good on almost all eye colors & skin tones. The shimmer lifts it from being a plain boring brown, but it is subtle enough for office. It doesn't have any chunky glitter. 

2. Unlike a lot of fat pencils from other brands - this one does not smudge or spread all over. 

3. This is a very good dupe for MAC Teddy. I had that pencil until recently. Not only is this a very close color match, it also last longer on my waterline comparatively (5-6 hours), and is half the price. 

4. It is very easy to blend this - it blends easily with a brush. 

5. It goes on really well on both my upper & lower lash line as well as my waterline. 

6. It has a built in sharpener, that is easy to use. 

What could be better: 

1.  The exposed tip tends to dry out over a while, so now I need to apply a bit more pressure and go over my line 2-3 times for the same intensity that it delivered initially. 

2. It is LE 

3. One cannot make thin lines with this - for obvious reasons. 


4. More colors please Revlon - give us Steel Smoke, and how about a Deep Amethyst Purple Smoke, Emerald Green Smoke, Khaki Gold Smoke.. You get the drift, yeh dil maange more!

Recommended: Yes! I already have a backup as it is LE. You're not gonna like this if you like thin, precise lines from your liner. But if you are into smoky, smudgy makeup - this is your one stop pencil.

  12. Avon has a nice eye pencil called Glimmersticks Liqui-Glide. It provides the look & feel of a liquid eyeliner but is in the form of a twist up pencil!

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…
