Inglot Freedom System Lipstick 03 - Review

Inglot Freedom System #03
It claims: Nothing. This lipstick is a part of the freedom system of Inglot where you can pick and create your own pallete of lipstick, eyeshadows & blushes in colors of your choice.

Price: Rs. 250 for 1.2 gm pan (the palletes cost extra though, depending on the size)

The product life is 2 years from date of manufacture

Availability: There is an Inglot store at Infinity - II (Malad). I was at G7 mall yesterday evening at 6 pm and the Inglot store there was closed. It may be shutting down, not sure.

Or else you can buy it online on shopatmajorbrands.com. They run discounts from time to time, so keep an eye out for those.


What I liked: 


1. The quality! The lipstick itself is very moisturing, and goes on smoothly. It is very buttery in fact. The feel is very creamy, but this lipstick doesn't add too much texture to the lips. You know that very creamy look of a lipstick that you get sometimes, you can see the lipstick sitting on the lips like a cream, you don't get that look with this.

2. The pigmentation is really nice, it delivers intense color right from the first application and it stays on the lips for quite some time (around 4-5) hours. If you wait for 10 minutes between applying the lipstick and then layering on gloss, the lipstick adheres quite firmly to the lips and the gloss doesn't reduce its life by a lot. You also need very little amount to cover the lips. I have pigmented lips and this manages to cover them pretty effectively.

3. This particular shade 03 - is a really nice natural / nude lip color that can be paired with smoky eyes. It is not too pale to wash me out, but by itself it is a bit plain. You would need a bit of a blush to balance it out in case you decide not to do smoky eyes. The color is a pretty mix of brown, peach & pink and is bound to suit fair skinned girls. It could also be a nice option for medium skinned girls looking for a nude shade. It has a bit of sheen to it, but is not overly shimmery. It is a good choice for office.

4. They are not strongly fragranced.

What could be better: 
1. I hate the fact that one needs a lip brush to apply it. The slot for the lip brush inside the palette is designed such that only a Inglot lip brush would fit into it. My Body Shop one doesn't, and so it has to be carried separately in a pouch. I generally do touch-ups on the go and this one is not travel friendly for working women.

2. The price. While Rs. 250 may not seem like a lot, compared to the fact that you could get a full-sized Maybelline / Jordana / Colorbar in this, it is a lot.

3. The Inglot policy of not selling single pans without the pallete in their stores. Honestly the palette is overpriced for what it is - just an empty box with slots. I feel Inglot would sell a lot more product if they let go of this policy. However it is unnecessary to buy the palette if you are shopping online. The only grouse with online shopping is that you can't swatch them and the shades online are very off the mark.

4. The color choice in the freedom system lipsticks are pretty limited when compared to the range they carry in eye shadows. They also don't have different textures or varieties like they offer in their eye shadows (matt, pearl, DS etc). They do have matt lip colors & other textures, but in their regular line. 


5. No names. It is very tough for me to remember & keep track of the shades I like. 

Recommended: The quality of these lipsticks is very good. They are soft, creamy, pigmented - almost like a lip butter, but are intensely pigmented and have good staying power. They are highly pigmented so a little goes a very, very long way. 


I'd suggest that you turn to these for shades that are hard to find - like the prefect nude or red for you. The range will give you choices, the price will give you freedom to experiment and the low quantity means that you will finish it up if you end up with a not so flattering color.


This particular shade #03, is the perfect nude / natural lip color for me. If you are cool toned like me, or are close to my skin color, but have pigmented lips and are on the hunt for a nude lip color, do try this out.

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…
