Inglot Freedom Lipstick in #01 - Review

You can read my detailed review of Inglot Freedom Lipsticks in general here.

This is the color #01 from their range:

Inglot Freedom Refill Lipstick in #01
About Quality & Pigmentation: This is just as pigmented and moisturising as the #03 one, although it is slightly less creamy in its finish. Since this a more intense shade, it lasts a bit longer than 03. You can expect 5-6 hour wear from this, of course, depending on what you eat and if you tend to lick your lips a lot - you might get slightly less wear. But the quality is awesome!

In terms of pigmentation, my lips are a naturally pigmented with my upper lip being darker than the lower one. But this covered the pigmentation quite well.


About the color: This one I think is meant for the warm toned gals. Because it looks awful on me!

This is one of those corally - orange - peach - pink shades that medium warm toned girls carry off so effortlessly. This is a really pretty shade for the summers up ahead and would gorgeous with all kinds of summer, pastel, neon, flowery prints. I feel it is a good alternative to red, esp for the day time.

Inglot Freedom Lipstick Refill in #01 Swatch
Only it doesn't work for me, and I think this will not work for anyone who is cool toned. On me it just appears a weird bright neon, florescent pink, totally fake & totally over the top. And it's not like I have an issue with bright colors. Hell, I have worn MAC Ruby Woo during the day.

But this one makes my skin look dull as well. I think it just clashes with my skin tone. I'd probably dig this out if I wanna dress up for a psychedelic color themed party. In any case I know that peach - coral shades don't work for me.

Overall: In terms of quality - this is very good and it is very pigmented. Despite my lips being an cool toned pink this lipstick covered them with a single layer. But as far as the color goes, I think this is one for the warm toned gals.

Cool toned babes, try it at the store first, before ordering. If peach - coral shades have not looked nice on you in the past, this won't either.

    1. Hmm, let me check it out.. the only corals I'm able to carry off are those that have a tinge of red in them, even coral pinks are an issue for me. My skin highlights the pink only & they start to look neon :P

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…
