Texture and fragrance-The texture of the face wash is very thick, almost like that of a cream (swatch below) . Color- white. Only a very small drop is required for the face. The fragrance is very mild and not irritating.

My experience

This foaming face wash is true to its name as it lathers really well. It gives that psychological satisfaction of cleaning yourself properly 😛 . Yes, we do have a weird sense of associating things like foam and clean 😉 . It washes off quite easily in a few rinses and with very less water. Yeah! Even after that much lathering!!…  I usually remove the light everyday make-up with this face wash.

The first day that I used this cream, I was pretty impressed-the fragrance was really nice and there actually was a pearly glow on my face (I wondered how could that come so soon ☺) So I used it for a week. I then had a mixed reaction to this product. The cream felt mattyfying and drying on my face although I have combination skin

It can be drying for the dry skinners but is good for the oily skinners and  combination skin  like me.

It may not be the best product for those with very dry skin. I would recommend this face wash for those with combination skin/ oily skin from my experience.

Thumbs up 👍 

  • Foams well
  • Brightens face
  • Removes oiliness
  • Rinses off easily
  • Very little quantity is required each time
  • Removes light make-up
  • travel -friendly
  • easily available

Thumbs down 👎 

  • Controls oil only for 2 hours
  • No skin lightening effect as claimed

My experience

I know that by the name of the perfume….it might sound like a men’s perfume but it actually isn’t.

It’s not at all floral in scent ,the fragrance of it is more like men’s perfume….it reminds me of a davidoff parfum.

For those ladies out there who prefer less of floral fragrances…this one will be epic for you guys!!

Thumbs Up 👍    – 🙂

  • i like the fragrance(not so feminine though)

Thumbs down  👎 

  • not available online easily

Lakme insta-liner (Water Resistant Eyeliner)

Hi beauties, 🙂
I bought this product beacause it was from a reputed brand “LAKME”. Before using this instaliner ,I didn’t even know the difference between water resistant and water proof
Product Reviewed– Lakme Instaliner
Price: Rs.179 for 9 ml (2.76usd)
Shelf life: 30 months
Ingredient List- not mentioned
Packaging– it’s really not what i was expecting from lakme… 😦 Packaging looks cheap.The product comes in a transparent glass bottle with a sturdy screw type lid..I didn’t even like the brush attached to the cap,it has irregular bristles to it.
What the company claims-
  • Lightweight and comfortable eye make-up for perfect definition
  • Water-resistant formula ensures no smudging or smearing
  • Deep intense color that does not fade.

My experience-
Lakme Insta Liner has deep black color that gives a fine definition to eyes.Mainly the irritating factor in kajal is smudging but with lakme insta liner i have no problem about smudging also to add to it, it stays put for the whole day, sometimes the next day.Though it comes as jet black, it never gives the same shine when dried.Its doesn’t dries soon, so when you apply in your waterline and sneeze(yeah! i did) or do something where your eyes shutter before the liner dries, it gets inside your socket area which is not a pretty sight. Though it have never caused me any irritation when its gets inside the socket region still eyes are too delicate so it is a major con.
Thumbs Up-

-easy to apply

-easy to wipe off
– has a deep black color.
-smudge proof.
-stays on for really long.
– travel friendly.
– affordable price

-jet black in colour

-doesn’t irritates the eye

Thumbs down-

  • i don’t like the look of the packaging.
  • i really hate the bristles of the brush
  • it takes along time to dry out.(more than elle 18 liquid eyeliner

Everytime i apply i get an instant brightness to my face like a radiating glow which also look natural even without a base. It works well as a setting powder over any base.Even a small amount of powder can work wonders.
It comes in a large brown color jar, the top of which has five little holes so that you can control the amount of powder. Also a powder puff is supplied with the pack.

Lakme perfect radiance intense whitening compact-Beige Honey

Hi beauties !!

Shade reviewed-Beige honey 05

It gives very sheer light coverage. It does not cover any discoloration at all.
However its good on the oil control part. Keeps my skin matte for up to 5 hours in an a/c environment.
It does come off with sweat and transfers as well like all other powders.
The smell is somewhat soapy, which I hate.
But the fragrance kind of disappears 5 minutes after application.
Now coming to the shades, the darkest shade available is Beige Honey 05, which is what I have.

Lakme really needs to work on their shade range for medium and darker skin tones.
according to me this shade, is just beige with neutral undertones.
So if you have medium skin tone, you can still make it work by applying lightly since its pretty sheer.
But it does tend to look a little white on me

Shades available – from lightest to darkest:
1. Ivory Fair 01
2. Rose Fair 02
3. Golden Medium 03
4. Rose Medium 04
5. Beige Honey 05
6. Rose Honey 06

Price of Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact : Rs.200/- for 8 g

Ingredient : Skin Brightening Pearls, multi minerals, vitamin B3 and spf 23. Detailed list is missing.

Company Says: – New Lakme Intense Whitening Compact SPF 23 with UVA/UVB protection flawlessly blends in to your skin making it look visibly fairer and translucently radiant. Its unique formula contains:

a) Skin Brightening Pearls that add a pearly glow

b) Goodness of Multi-minerals

c) Vitamin B3 proven to visibly lighten skin tone with daily usage

d) SPF23 UVA & UVB protection

Shelf life : 24 months

Thumps up 👍  –

  • great affordable price
  • travel handy
  • it does not look cakey even if you overdo it.
  • Controls oil for 3-4 hours.

Thumbs down 👎  –

  • Does not provide any coverage.
  • No shades for medium to dusky skin tones.
  • Ingredient list missing.
  • Puff provided is so thin & useless.

Rating-2/5….Lakme could have done better

Would i buy it again?

no
