What times of india says– Purplle.com, an online beauty and personal care site, has raised its first round of institutional funding from IvyCap Ventures as the startup looks to scale up its services business and tap the international markets. Purplle’s earlier investors include networks like the Mumbai Angels, the Chennai Angels and early-stage investment fund Blume Ventures.
Founded by IIT-Delhi alumnus Manish Taneja and IIM-Ahmedabad graduate Rahul Dash.Purplle has tied up with more than 7,000 salons, spas, skin care and hair care chains across Mumbai and plans to take that number up to 50,000 across 30 cities by the end of this year. “We hope to close 2015 with annualized sales of $30-40 million,” Taneja said.
Besides specialized players, subscription-based discovery commerce players like Fab Bag inspired by US-based startup Birchbox also operate in the online beauty space.

To see the review of LAKME ABSOLUTE SKIN GLOSS GEL CREME
i have had this product for quite awhile….so i just thought it should be reviewed as it works really well for me.
It comes in standard old lakmé maroon box . Lakmé rose powder which is actually an loose powder comes in two shade range : warm pink and soft pink.
Warm pink is for medium to dark skin tone while latter is for light
Shade reviewed– 02 Warm Pink(this shade for wheatish to dusky skin)
What Lakme claims about Rose Powder:
- Foundation make-up in a powder format- gives a flawless radiant look.
- Contains rose fragrance to keep you fresh, contains sunscreen to protect from harmful UV rays.
- Gives a flawless radiant look.
Price– 140 INR for 40 g( 2.14 US dollar)
Ingredients: Talc, Zinc Sterate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Titanium Dioxide, Aluminium hydroxide, Steric Acid, Perfume, Rosa Damascena Extract,Phenoxy Ethanol, Butyl Paraben, Ethyl Paraben, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben.
The texture of Lakme Rose Powder- 02 Warm Pink is very smooth, it is not chalky, and it blends smoothly and evenly into the skin.
The Lakme Rose Powder- 02 Warm Pink imparts a natural finish to the skin, neither too matte, nor dewy. The skin looks just natural, and I like this property too. The staying power is around 3 hours on my oily skin.
The powder claims to have SPF, though the exact SPF content is not mentioned on the pack. One pack has a lot of powder, so even if used daily, it will easily last for more than 6 months.
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.
i really love the way it works…this powder is more like a “mineral powder ” but at an indian drugstore range.

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.

a) Skin Brightening Pearls that add a pearly glow

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?
