Lakme Fantasy Collection- True Wear Nail Color Swatches and info

Hello Ladies,

Today I am reviewing the True Wear Nail Color which is a component of the Lakme Fantasy Collection.

Decently priced at Rs 90, the True Wear Nail Color claims to give you a colorful summer.

"Flash around those enchantingly pretty nails. Happy nail colors in mellow pink, hot pink, soft lilac and mauve, bring gorgeousness to your fingertips. Brush them on your nails and bring magic to any look."

Lakme Fantasy Collection consists of 6 True Wear Nail Colors, out of which I was sent 3. :)

Here are the 6 shades:

The pictures of the shades which were sent to me:

True Wear Color in shade no 247

It's a very wearable color, apt for formal attires, office going ladies will love this shade. :)

True Wear Color in shade no 249

It's a subtle peachy pink shade, suits both casual and formal attires. :)

True Wear Color in shade no 250

It's a bright pink summery shade. So bright and fun!!

My take on the True Wear Color

Beautiful colors
Dries Super Fast
Smooth application
Nice wand
Doesn't chip at least for 4 days. :)
Not sheer, 2 coats and you are done


Definitely YES! I am picking up the other 3 shades too. :) And I recommend it to everyone.

My Charm Factory "Awareness" bracelet!! :)

Hello Ladies,

I received the "Awareness" bracelet by Charm Factory few days ago!! :)

But before that, a little on the brand.

Charm Factory features almost 5000 high quality, unique sterling silver charms, bracelets, beads and more. Silver charm bracelets are so easy to personalize. Start by choosing a charm bracelet (or necklace). Then add as many .925 sterling silver charms as you like. Each charm comes with a free jump ring to attach it to your bracelet.

The charms and beads are .925 sterling silver and manufactured in the United States, all lead and nickel free. Their pewter charms are also nickel and lead free. Charm Factory products do not contain cadmium, which is a concern with some products made in Asia. (The jump rings attached to our pewter charms do contain a small amount of nickel. A few imports that they do not make here, like some chains from Italy, are noted in product details.)

*A note about prices: As you know, silver and gold markets are on the rise, and as precious metal costs skyrocket, charms and jewelry become even more valuable. The Charm Factory's prices on silver items will change, up and down, as the markets change.

Not just bracelets, they have a huge variety of charms, pendants, pins, and rings.

The bracelet is made of sterling silver, and has beautiful finishing. :)

I am loving my "Awareness" bracelet!! :)

Charm factory is offering free shipping over the purchase of $25. They already have their spring collection out. SO hurry!!

Lotus Herbals WHITGLOW Yogurt skin whitening & brightening Masque- Review

Hello Ladies,
Today I will be reviewing the Lotus Herbals WHITGLOW Yogurt skin whitening & brightening Masque, this one product from the entire WHITEGLOW range didn’t work for me. 

Here’s why.

Product Claim:

Nourishment is vital for healthier, fairer skin. WHITEGLOW yogurt skin whitening & brightening masque provides complete nourishment for your skin. It is enriched with yogurt enzymes and bearberry extract that improves skin texture making it firm. The result, you have brighter, younger and radiant skin. Contains no harmful chemicals.

Price and quantity:

145 INR for 80g


Comes in a handy screw top tube. Provides non messy product discharge and also helps in avoiding product wastage.


D.M, Water, kaolin, light liquid paraffin, glycerin, bentonite, glyceryl monostearate, polysorbate-80, zinc oxide, acacia Senegal (gum acacia), yogurt powder, cetostearyl alcohol, arctostaphylos uva-ursi (bearberry) extract, cetyl alcohol, xanthan gum, 2-phenoxyethanol, methyl paraben, propyl paraben, alpha arbutin, fragrance.

Active ingredients:
Milk Yogurt & Bearberry.

Yogurt and bearberry the active ingredients not only nourish your skin but hydrate and help regain moisture. Yogurt is rich in lactic acid which is an active skin lightening, anti- aging, firming and restructuring agent of skin. Yogurt is effective at cleansing and disinfecting pores, preventing acne, moisturizing and revitalizing skin texture, it also reduces the size of pores, and eliminates skin texture, it also reduces the size of pores, and eliminates dead flakes to reveal a fresh, glowing visage.

How to use it:

Apply generous amount of the masque on the face and neck. Let the mask dry. Once it dries, rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Use twice a week for brighter and firmer skin. Follow with WHITEGLOW skin whitening & brightening gel crème and micro emulsion.

About the Lotus Herbals WHITGLOW Yogurt skin whitening & brightening Masque:

This is one product from the entire WHITEGLOW range I am unsatisfied with, of course it didn’t cause any irritation or skin problem to me, neither did it work for me but it simply fell flat on my expectations.
It’s a cream based masque which claims to tighten up the skin and give your skin radian and glow. I liked nothing in the masque except its packaging and its ingredients. 

Reasons to like the Lotus Herbals WHITGLOW Yogurt skin whitening & brightening Masque:

• The packaging is non-messy. I like it since I do not waste product from this tube, since it has a screw up top and a wide nozzle. 
• It didn’t give me any types of skin irritations or break outs. 
• It didn’t make my skin dry, like some masks do. 
• One claim which proves to be right by the product is that it’s suitable for all skin type. 
• It’s got a mild fragrance. 

Reasons to dislike the Lotus Herbals WHITGLOW Yogurt skin whitening & brightening Masque:

• It does nothing to my skin, except making it look a bit clean (which happens even after washing the face with a face wash).
• It doesn’t firm up the skin, as claimed.
• It doesn’t really help reduce the large pores (Mum used it, and found it ineffective).
• The masque never dries, I know it’s a cream based masque but it’s mentioned that “wash after the masque dries”.
• The skin lightening & brightening claim doesn’t work with this too, you simply see a nicely washed and clean face after washing the masque. 


No, I won’t repurchase it. This is the only product which I shall skip from the entire range.  I wouldn’t recommend it either, but if you really want to fit in the whole routine of the WHITEGLOW range you may pick it. It’s worth a miss otherwise, but do try their other products for sure.
