Inglot Freedom Lipstick #51 - Review

You know the drill by now right? For those of you who are new to Inglot Freedom series lipsticks, these cost Rs. 250 for a 1.2 gm container.

You can read my general review of the range here



Quality & Pigmentation: Three's the charm they say. This one is very creamy, soft & moisturizing on the lips. It is pigmented, but not as much as #01. A single layer may not cover the pigmentation of your lips completely, but second layer will take care of it. It does tend to wear off a bit quickly too because it is more emollient. Don't expect more than 3 hours of wear from this.

Color: Cool toned girls, here is your fuchsia, barbie pink shade. It is actually a gorgeous, girly & very spring - summer pink. Unapologetic. It reminds me of Barbie, in a good way.

This is one of those shades that requires the full face treatment when worn intensely. You cannot get away wearing this only, this requires that your skin look prefect, even if you skip heavy eye makeup, or else it starts to look OTT.

But worn as a tint, you can get away with just some basic tinted moisturizer - concealing (if you have acne, coz this pulls out all the pinkness in your skin). But you should not avoid it completely.

The good thing is that since it has cool undertones, it makes your teeth appear really white.

Inglot Freedom Lipstick in #51 - Swat
It seems like a close dupe for MAC Lustering. There, but not quite there.

Overall: This is a tricky color for even cool toned gals to carry off on a bare face, warm toned girls  - try in store before purchasing online. And try this one on your lips, not just a hand swatch. Cool toned girls looking for a fuchsia Katy Perry pink - this is a good option.

  4. The color is lovely, but I doubt if it would suit me. Not pigmented like others? So do we infer that the shades are not equally pigmented?

    Each of the colors that you swatched, I'm sure looks so pretty on you Tanz! :)

    1. This is a color that needs to tried on before purchase.. I noticed that there is a slight variation in the textures of these, some are more glossy and therefore comparatively sheer - the pigmentation is comparable to Revlon CB lipsticks. But some like #01 are less shiny, bit more creamy and therefore more pigmented.

      They all look good in swatches, but actually only 03 & this 51 are the ones that look good on me. 01 is a disaster :)

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…
