Garnier Color Naturals Burgundy 3.16 Review


Rs. 180

The pack Contains

50ml developer milk, 50g Hair Colorant-TYPE III, Hair Conditioner 2*5ml, Instruction Leaflet, and Gloves

How to use-
  1. Read carefully the instructions leaflet before application. One must always do a skin allergy test(a process discussed below) without fail 48 hours before each use of this product.
  2. Put gloves on. To color entire hair, first, open developer bottle and pour the whole milk into a non-metallic bowl, then empty the whole tube of the hair colorant into the bowl. Mix very well. To color, only some portion of the hair, use half the bottle of developer and half the tube of colorant. Note: mix equal amount of developer milk and hair colorant into the bowl.
  3. Put on an old t-shirt. Carefully apply the mixture on the portions of your hair which you want to color using a hair coloring nonmetallic brush or by hand(with gloves on). Try to avoid contact with your skin.
  4. When you are done with the coloring, tie up your hair with a nonmetallic hair more clutch or cover it with plastic or old towel. Leave on for at least 30 mins. For better results, leave it on for 3-4 hours.
  5. Then rinse your hair thoroughly with water. Then apply the conditioner given with the pack. Keep it for 2 mins, then wash it off.
  1. This product contains ingredients which may cause skin irritation in certain cases and so a preliminary test according to the accompanying directions should first be made. This product should not be used for dyeing the eyelashes or eyebrows; as such use may cause blindness.
  2. This preparation may cause serious inflammation of the skin in some cases and so a preliminary test should always be carried out to determine whether or not special sensitivity exists. To perform the test, remove the earrings. Behind the ear and using a cotton bud apply a small quantity of the hair dye as prepared for use to cover 2 sq. cm. Allow drying. Carefully reseal the colorant tube and developer bottle. Leave for 24 hours without washing, covering or touching. If during this period you notice any abnormal reactions- such as itching, redness or swelling in or around the test area, do not apply the product. This test should, however, be carried out before each and every application.
  3. Ignoring an allergy can be life-threatening. In case of any reaction or when in doubt consult a doctor before using any hair color product.
  4. Do not color your hair if you have a rash on your face or sensitive, irritated and damaged scalp or you have ever experienced any reaction after coloring your hair or you have experienced a reaction to a temporary ‘black henna’ tattoo in the past.
  5. A person under the age of 16 is advised not to use the product.

My experience after using the Garnier Color Naturals Burgundy 3.16

I really like my hair color. It feels so natural. My friends are complimenting me every time they have a look at my hair. This was my first time trying out hair color. Yes, I was nervous thinking about how my hair will turn out to be. But the results are worth trying out this product. Especially the shade ‘burgundy’! The color is so pretty and mesmerizing! The color is best visible in sunlight. Bleaching your hair before coloring will obviously make your hair color completely visible but if you want to directly apply it on your black or dark brown or brown hair, it’s not a bad idea because it looks natural and beautiful as well. I have used it on my dark brown hair and my hair really radiates a soothing color when I go out. Though I haven’t colored my entire hair, you can see it in the pictures that I have given, still, it looks quite good for natural looking hair color. And also, bleaching your hair is not a very good option. At an affordable price, this product perhaps won’t disappoint you.

My rating


Would I repurchase this product?

Yes because I like my hair color. I don’t really have any complaint regarding this product. My hair has turned up perfectly fine after the application. Those who want to have natural shades on their hair, I would recommend you this product. But those who want to highlight your hair, I would say this product is not suitable for that.

My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Sorbet Tuesday

Initially, I wasn’t planning on to buy this product. I actually went to the store to buy Lakme lip matte crayon, but the store lady suggested me to try this out. I wasn’t really sure about whether buy it or not, but thankfully I am not disappointed with this product. I am very much impressed with its pigmentation. Most importantly its smudge proof, thus it frees us from worrying whether it will leave lipstick stains on a coffee mug, and also regular touch ups are not required as the lipstick is quite long lasting. Since I am a college student, this shade ‘ sorbet Tuesday’ is pretty much suitable for my everyday use. My lips feel soft and light. This shade is a beautiful baby pink color, giving my lips a natural pink color. Another amazing feature is its matte finish. I just love it. My lips look super smooth.

Key Features of the Product
  1. Smooth Matte Finish- The lipstick gives a smooth texture that makes the lips soft and patch-free due to the presence of primer.
  2. Long Lasting- The color stays for quite a long time, for 5-6 hours or more than that. It doesn’t really fade away after having a meal. But after a heavy meal, it may need some touch-ups.
  3. Pigmentation- The color is pigment-riched. Even a single stroke will leave you with a perfect shade. Color is bright and does not leave a stain like some other matte lipsticks.
  4. Perfect texture even after a long time- The lipstick do not get settled into lip creases and curve even after a long time, which makes this product perfect.
  5. Mild fragrance- The product doesn’t have a strong smell, thus it is unlike other lipsticks. It gives off a mild fragrance which fades after some time. So if you are not comfortable with a strong scent of lipstick, this product is suitable for you.

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Green

Who is it for? Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Green is for ladies who love to show off a wild look sometime, or for those who prefer colored kajals instead of our same old black one. It is perfect for parties and many other occasions as well as regular use.


Rs. 250 for 0.35g

How to use

Draw your eyelid taut and draw a line across your upper lid. Or else you could also use it on outside your lower lid for a dramatic look.

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Green

My Experience with Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Green

Smooth Glide

Unlike various kajal pencils, Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Collection has the specialty of easy glide. It is easy to use due to its smooth gliding nature, and you can get the perfect color in one go. It has a very smooth texture


Lakme Eyeconic Kajal is generally smudge proof, and so is this product. After an all-day work or a party, my eyes still looks the same, smudgeless. But still, it is less smudge proof than the black one and may get smudged if your skin type is oily.

Water Proof

One of the best features of Lakme Eyeconic is that it is absolutely waterproof. You can not at all wash off your kajal using water only. Even my kajal stays after a shower if I do not use cleanser to get it off.

Long Lasting

Except that you accidentally rub off your eye, this product stays for quite a long time without any touch-ups. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal promises to last up to 10 hours, I can say it stays deep and strong for more or less 8 hrs, provided your skin type isn’t oily.

Pigmented Green color

Just one strike of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal, and you can get that absolute bold green eyes. The color is not a proper green color but it is pigment-rich and dark.


The product contains quite a moisture. You can create the smoky look by blending the kajal on your eyelids due to its smooth texture. Also due to the moisture content, my eyelids do not feel itchy.


  1. Easy glide, smooth texture, moisturization
  2. Smudge-proof and Water Proof
  3. Long lasting
  4. Pigment-rich color
  5. No irritation of eyes
  6. Affordable
  7. Everyday usable product


  1. May get smudged if the too much oily skin
  2. Color may not show on pigmented eyelids

Would I recommend this product?

Yes, I would recommend this product. I will basically recommend this shade to ladies with lighter skin tone because the color may not be distinguished by darker skin tone. It actually best suits people with normal skin, as it may get smudged on oily skin type after a while. As my skin is normal type, so this product suits me. For a regular use or party look with bold smoky eyes, it is worth a try. I would like to rate it 4 out of 5 overall.

My Experience with Lakme 9 To 5 Lip Liner Red Alert

Smooth Glide

The product smoothly glides over the lips because of its satiny finish. It is rich in pigments, so it matches the texture of lips. One stroke of Lakme 9To5 Lip Liner achieves absolutely smooth red lips.

Smudge and Waterproof

Unlike various lip products, it is smudge and waterproof which is a very big advantage of this product.

Staying Power

It is quite long lasting and needs lesser touch-ups than most of the lip products. Due to its richly pigmented color, the color stays for a long time.

Color and Moisturisation

Lakme 9To5 Lip Liner ‘Red Alert’ have higher color pay off. It blends in a stunning red color in lips, thus effortlessly suits the texture of lips.

The product does not dry up lips at all. Its moisturization is amazingly cool. So you can also try it out solo on your entire lips and it gives a wonderful stunning matte finish lip color that really surprised me. So no need to use any moisturizer or lip balm before applying this product. Also, most importantly it doesn’t form patches on lips and doesn’t accumulate in lip creases. I often use this product entirely on my lips. It gives a bold red color.


  1. Super Gliding
  2. Absolute pigmented finish
  3. No need of frequent touch-ups
  4. Smudge-proof
  5. Waterproof
  6. Moisturisation
  7. Long lasting


There is hardly any cons that I can think of, but one thing is it doesn’t have a pleasant smell. But I like it as it is because I don’t really prefer too much fragrance on lips.

Would I Repurchase This Product?

Yes, its a thumbs up because apparently, I found no major cons of this product. It is easy to use and the color is pigmented and smooth. A very good product for regular use as well as party bold look. A must try for college and office goers.

Achieve pout perfection with easy to glide Lakme 9To5 Lip Liner, and say goodbye to regular touch-ups. This product is worth a try. My rating for this product is 5 on 5!

Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera Gel

Who is this for? Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera Gel is basically an alternative to our very own Aloe Vera plant and can be used by both men and women. It is the upgraded version of “Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel”. It is for regular use to remove dark spots and patches on your skin, moisturizes your skin as well as hair.

Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera Gel


Rs. 80 for 150ml

How to use:      

  1. The best time to use this product is at night. Wash your face thoroughly with water. You can also use facewash to clean your face if you have an oily skin. Dry up. Then take up the product at your finger tips and massage well throughout your face. After massaging, you can also apply a thick layer of the gel on your face, just for a better result. Then wash your face with water in the morning.
  2. In morning, 30 min before taking bath, apply the gel on your face and leave it.
  3. Massage the gel into rough areas of your skin, dark spots, or pimple marks.
  4. Hair problems such as hair fall, no growth of hair, thinning of hair, losing the strength of hair roots and dandruff etc, can be healed by applying and massaging the gel on your hair 15 min before going for a bath.
  5. Before applying makeup, you can apply a little amount of the gel in your face and massage well. Wait till it dries off. Then apply your makeup. This works as a moisturizer and primer.

My Experience on using Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera Gel:


As we all know Aloe Vera is the perfect natural skin moisturizer. Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera gel works as an absolute skin moisturizer with no stickiness. It contains 90% of aloe barbadensis and also vitamin E which moisturizes the skin thoroughly, leaving a naturally soft and glowing skin. For those who have naturally rough skin, this product is perfect.

Cures Pimples and Reduces Dark Spots and Pimple marks:

This product is really useful for reducing dark spots and pimple marks. Apply it daily and get rid of dark spots and pimple marks. Also applying it to existing pimple helps to get a faster recovery. It dries out a pimple and clears off the skin.

Overall Effectiveness

In the 1st year of college, I had a Major Acne Breakout!!! I used many products, medicines, and natural remedies to cure it. Thank god they were gone within a month or two, but, then the actual problem arose! Acne Marks!! As we all know Aloe Vera is the best remedy to cure acne and acne marks, but applying the plant daily is really tiresome. So I bought this product Patanjali Saundarya  Aloe Vera Gel, and it really helped. After applying it on the face daily for 1-2 months straight, I saw clear results. My marks were gone actually! Plus it is non-sticky and smooth. It doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. It doesn’t harm the skin at all unlike most of the products. As I use this product personally, I will say that the product doesn’t ensure that you will not have any a further pimple or acne on your skin, but applying it on your existing pimple does work. It causes a faster recovery and the pimple dries off.  As a pimple is caused due to impurity present in blood, so don’t expect that by using this product you won’t have any a pimple further.

My skin feels really soft after application. I apply it every night before going to bed. It reduces my dark spots as well as works as a night moisturizer.

What I liked about this?

  1. Reduces dark spots and acne marks
  2. Moisturises skin
  3. Soft and glowing skin
  4. Dries off a pimple faster
  5. Good for both skin and hair
  6. No harmful chemical
  7. Cheap
  8. Easy to apply

What don’t I like about it?

  1. A bit sticky when a thick layer is applied
  2. Doesn’t ensure ‘no further pimples’.
  3. Very strong smell (for some it may be problematic, but not for me)

Would I repurchase this Product?

You must have already guessed my answer for this, a very big yes! I have bought it a number of times already. I find this product very useful. I will definitely recommend to buy this product and use it daily for a soft glowing clear skin. Though using the original aloe vera plant is the best option, but using this product as an alternative is not a bad idea, especially for those who are a bit lazy to work up like me. So guys, buy it up, this product is worth trying out once. And you won’t regret buying it.
