Revlon Lash Fantasy Total Definition Mascara - Review

It claims: Revlon Lash Fantasy Total Definition™ Mascara Waterproof nourishes thickens and lengthens lashes with amazing clump free definition!

- Vitamin enriched primer nourishes, lifts and makes lashes look up to 70% longer
- Mascara delivers thickness and rich, intense color impact that lasts all day, without smudging or flaking
- NEW Lash Separating brushes comb through every single lash for beautiful definition without clumping


Price: Rs. 750 /- for 4.4 ml

Shade: 101 Blackest Black

What worked well: (Not much!)

1. The brush is very nice, it is bendy and it has these short bristles that really help you grab the curved lashes right from the roots. 

2. The shade blackest black is very dark – true black & it does makes your lashes look longer and more defined.

What could be better: (A lot!)

1.Instead of volume, what you get is clumps when you apply the black mascara. It is odd that it claims to provide "amazing clump free definition" when all one gets is clumps from the very first application. I think the problem lies with the primer. You see, the primer is white in color. When you apply that you get these hideous white lashes. The black mascara doesn't coat the lashes throughly - maybe the formula is too thick or the brush doesn't pick up enough. God knows. So what you get is "Zebra" lashes - half white and half black. In order to salvage the situation, you go back in with the mascara formula that is not designed to layer well - Clumps Ahoy!



2. There are no directions on the pack whether one needs to wait for the primer to dry before you apply the mascara or if it is to be applied immediately. 

3. This is not for office / day or natural looking lashes. The end result is not soft, pet-table lashes but intense dark, very obviously mascara-ed  lashes.

4. Overpriced! I know of mascaras from Max Factor, Maybelline & Lakme that are much cheaper than this & work a lot better. Considering that you gotta "officially" throw away mascara in some 3 months of use, this is an expensive proposition. (And I use my mascara till it gets dry & clumpy, which is generally 6 to 8 months after first use)

5. Not waterproof. 

Overall: I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Maybe it needs to be used in a particular way, and I am just ignorant about it. In any case the pack doesn't carry any instructions, so I assume that it was created to be dummy - proof (which means that dummies like me can use it without burning out grey cells). You get much better mascaras at 1/3 the price for eg, the Lakme Absolute Mascara which I adore to bits!

Have you tried this mascara? Any thoughts on how to make it work?

  2. I agree Tanveer.. It is expensive considering we can get cheaper and better mascaras. I like Maybelline hyper curl mascara a lot, doesn't clump much.
    I will try Lakme absolute soon!

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…
