Get Those Mesmerizing Eyes: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal and Curling Mascara Review.

I do hope your enjoying the  400 + Followers GIVEAWAY  I am hosting on this blog -- Have you entered the giveaway yet ?? If Not, Please Enter my GIVEAWAY HERE

A while ago, Lakme Launched Its EYECONIC Range of Products which included Kajal and Curling Mascara. I had posted about the launch on the blog HERE - Blogosphere went all crazy with reviews coming up about both of the products... I read some pretty bad reviews. 

 Lakme Eyeconic Kajal and Curling Mascara
Women and specially college girls wholesomely and mostly depended on Maybelline Colossal Kajal - I mean - You're most welcome to check out my college's washroom to see girls swiping away the yellow pencils over n over the bottom lash line to achieve that jet- black lined eyes.

I had the Maybelline SA from The Beauty Shop nearby my place saying "Buy it .. I have last few pieces left.. Its for INR 135 /- after discount"  :) 

Anyways, Enough of gaga over makeup talks - Lets get to the review on Lakme Eyeconic Kajal and Curling Mascara. I was pretty excited when the Eyeconic Kit arrived... Was head over heels looking at Kareena Kapoor with those tantalizing jet black rimmed eyes....  I wont bored all of you with the details of the product and bla blaa... You can check the details (price and packaging) about both these products HERE.

 Lakme Eyeconic Kajal and Curling Mascara

Eyeconic Kajal

 Lakme Eyeconic Kajal and Curling Mascara
I love this product to the core !! A sleek black pencil which is same as the Maybelline Colossal Kajal in terms of packaging - is a perfect tool to achieve that diva jet black eyes. The consistency is Bang on !! Its creamy and glides over your lids - No tugging or pulling required !! The color is blackest black !! It lives upto its claim of being waterproof , smudge free once its settled onto your lash line, skin-friendly. I have watery eyes and this product stayed put easily without losing its color intensity for the whole day !! I have read reviews where bloggers say - the kajal removal process takes quite a toll but Honestly !! I didn't face any such problems as long as you use good makeup remover which is capable of removing waterproof makeup.  I totally LOVE this kajal and Would recommend this to everyone !!

Eyeconic Curling Mascara

 Lakme Eyeconic Kajal and Curling Mascara

Now - Just the Jet Black Eyes won't do the trick !! If you want to achieve those hypnotic Eye Look - You got to take your eye makeup a notch up !!  That's where the Eyeconic Curling Mascara comes in !! The Eyeconic Mascara gives your eye lashes the finished look when you team it up with the kajal. The Mascara does have curling effect to your lashes - So if you are a lazy bum like me who does'nt like to use eye lash curler everytime - This is the product for you !! I wand of the mascara is perfect to distribute and coat each lash evenly with the product and curling them while they do so. It really opens up your eyes and gives your lashes a separated and groomed look. The mascara is also waterproof which is great. I would recommend buying both the products and using them together to give your eyes the EYECONIC LOOK!!

Sunsilk Keratinology Shampoo,Conditioner and Hair Mask Review

Somehow I had stopped using Sunsilk products ages ago, I don't know why ! but it's just that we are now spoiled by choice - there are tons of brands with a range of shampoo and conditioners.  

Sunsilk only taught my attention recently when they launched -  its first ever advanced premium hair care range, Keratinology, its breakthrough in hair care innovation. Keratinology by Sunsilk is specially designed and tested to harness the power of Keratin Micro Technology, to prolong the beauty of salon-treated hair. It has two ranges, Advanced Reconstruction Program and Sun Kissed Colour Therapy. The Advanced Reconstruction Program has been tested to recover up to one year of accumulated hair damage, compared to a non-conditioning shampoo in just 5 days. The Sun Kissed Colour Therapy protects coloured hair and luminous hair colour is retained for longer.  

Advanced Reconstruction program consists of 5 products : 
  • Detoxifying Shampoo : Gently removes residues and impurities from hair, ensuring complete cleansing, while preparing hair for full reconstruction.
  • Express Treatment Conditioner :Penetrates the hair, gently repairing the damage; the deep softening action leaves hair healthy and smooth. 
  • Hair spa Mask :Penetrates through three layers of hair, for deep intensive action; reconstructs and seals cuticles leaving hair healthy and beautiful.
  •  Over night Treatment : Recovers up to a month of protein loss in one night.It fills in cracks from damage for salon-like repair. 
  • Heat protector Spray:Protects every millimeter of hair during styling, for truly professional salon beauty for longer.

My Experience with the Products : 
Sunsilk Keratioology Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Mask

 Shampoo and Conditioner:   
I was given the opportunity to try Advanced Reconstruction Program Shampoo and Conditioner. I had discussed my hair problems with the company's PR in order for them to recommend product better suited to my hair problems. I have fine and brittle hair. I suffer from hair fall and also have dry scalp.  

Both the products - The Sunsilk Keratinology Shampoo and Conditioner are priced 200 INR/- for 200 ml. Reasonably priced.   

The shampoo and conditioner are light yellow in colour and the consistency is just right - not too runny nor too thick. The products have mild pleasant smell which I like.

The shampoo lathers up really well and effectively cleanses your scalp. A little quantity is sufficient in cleansing your hair. 

The shampoo can be disastrous if you use it in large quantities - It caused me lots of hair shedding. The detoxifying shampoo is a perfect product if you looking for something to get rid of excess hair product buildup in your scalp. 

The conditioner does a really good job in detangling your hair and making them really shiny and soft.  I must warn everyone with fine hair - Use this conditioner in small amounts to prevent your hair going limp afterawhile. 

Hair Mask: 

I really liked the spa Hair mask - the consistency is more like a gel than the cream and is light.  

I apply the hair mask after shampooing and conditioning my hair . Applying the hair mask on you hair tips works the best.  If you wish to deep condition your hair and scalp... apply the mask prior to shampooing your hair. Keep the mask for an hour and then proceed for hair wash followed by conditioning. It works well either way. 

The hair becomes super soft and shiny after using this hair mask. Also it helps to define your hair curls if you have any. 

It didn't completely remove frizz but I didn't mind as long as it made my hair look good. 

If you want your hair to be like salon - set, Apply this mask to your hair tips after hair wash. Clip your hair and keep it for 30 mins. Rinse and then  blow dry your hair to give it more volume and bounce. 

Love it or Chuck it ?

Shampoo and conditioner are really good products if you looking for products to detoxify your hair. I recommend the hair mask to everyone who wish to pamper their hair to a good hair spa session at home. 

Please Note: The products were sent by the company's PR for consideration.

Say Yes to Hair Color: Casting Creme Gloss Review

Loreal Paris recently launched the Say Yes to Colour Campaign on digital which is about the benefits of using Casting Crème Gloss to colour your hair. India as you know has always been a grey coverage market but Loreal feels that given the right product, they can get the modern Indian woman to experiment with colour and bring out her individuality.

Casting Crème Gloss

Casting Crème Gloss is the perfect hair colour for women who prize quality and care over everything else. It is a no ammonia hair colourant that gives your hair rich, visible tones and a stunning glossy shine. Enriched with Royal Jelly, a naturally occurring substance known for its rare nutritive and rejuvenating quality, Casting Crème Gloss ensures that post colouring hair is left revitalized with a glossy shine. Its crème formula contains a special patented conditioning complex that helps protect the hair fibre inside and out for exceptionally soft voluptuous hair. It is easy to apply, takes just 20 minutes and comes in a do-it-yourself kit which saves unnecessary trips to the parlour. The delicate fragrance makes colouring a luxurious treat! It delivers on every aspect, quite like the modern Indian woman.

Casting Crème Gloss

For more information on this revolutionary hair colour you can visit:

The campaign aims to educate women about the benefits of colouring their hair. They would like to also get them to Say Yes To Colour! Since, most women are apprehensive about colouring their hair; they want to introduce women to the safe No Ammonia Casting Crème Gloss. They want women to rediscover themselves and try different shades from our range!

Throughout the campaign Loreal encourages women to colour their hair by busting myths related to hair colour. They have already busted a few myths on their Facebook page. Have a look at them here:

My Review On the Product:

I was pretty excited to try on this hair color, I had my cousin's engagement coming up and I wanted to try out something new for my hair. This product came at the right time - just when I needed it. 
To experience and understand the product better, Loreal gladly sent across a Casting Creme Gloss in my choice of shade. To pick a shade that suits me the best, Loreal suggested me to  take their 'My Hair My Colour' quiz here: I took the test and I picked  400 dark brown as my choice of shade. I did not wish to color my hair into something very obvious and bright !! 

The moment the hair color arrived at my place - My mom jumped on to try the product. She was super excited to try it on her hair. So, Let me first start with my mom's natural hair color -my mom has wavy hair - grey to white on the insides which are clearly visible when we part her hair. Her hair is more prone to go white near the forehead on the top and side locks. Washing her face frequently causes the color to wash off easily in these areas.  She then does touch -ups every 2 weeks where she doesn't color her hair completely but only touch up the areas where the color has faded.

So, my first impression on this product was that it appeared as any other hair color available. The words" NO AMMONIA" was the only thing that caught my attention. I was keen to see the effect the hair color will have. Casting Creme Gloss has a variety of shades to choose from which is a huge plus point for this product. 

Casting Crème Gloss

The hair color comes in a pink colored box packaging which claims that the color covers away grey and imparts satin. glossy and soft feel to it. The box also features a small chart - kind of color chart which shows "before" and "after" effects this hair colorant will have on your hair. 
I personally feel that this chart are never precise in nature and I suggest you be the judge and try out the shades personally. 

Casting Crème Gloss

Opening the box - it featured standard things you find in a hair color : Instructions leaflet, Developer creme, Color creme, conditioner and HUGE Gloves !! The  developer creme bottle had a nozzle to it which made the hair color application process very easy. 

I really liked the fact that there was no pungent, nasty smell when the formulation was prepared and the formulation was just right in consistency it did not drip anywhere - The result of this hair color was also amazing, it was very natural looking and also imparted a shine to my mom's hair. The hair color is not very intense and needs to be applied again to acheive the intensity which you desire. Also the color faded slowly after 10 washes.  

Since the hair color didnt contain ammonia, the hair color did not have any adverse effects on my mom's hair. I had pretty bad experience when I had used garnier hair color years ago... 

I really liked the overall effect the hair color had on my mother's hair ... Since my hair is long I think I ll need to buy another box of this same shade to color my hair. I would suggest this hair color to all you beauties out there who wish to experiment something new with their hair.
