Right from giving your lips a La Vie En Rose full coverage to offering a natural blush to sculpted cheek-bones, Lakmé 9 to 6 Matte Mousse is all you need this Valentines Day. I have been trying the tint for an all day look to wearing it up on a Delhi-Mumbai travel spree and not even once have I felt the need to re-apply the tint or wipe the smudge off over a quick meal express. The application is swift, texture- smooth and credibility – flawless. The great part about this Lip and Cheek Colour? The texture is matte yet weightless on application. Which means, your lips look fuller without the feel of overdoing the usage.

All shades go well with the Indian skintone and are apt to be worn at all seasons. The application is smooth, blends well with the skin and leaves behind dry yet highly pigmented lips and blush-cheeks, post application.

Why Godrej Nupur Coconut Henna Crème Haircolour? First visible signs of ageing include graying of hair. While for decades that has been the norm, in recent years the graying of hair has developed in younger generation too. Thanks to the polluted environment that we live in now, colouring hair has become more of a necessity, than just adding some extra shades to your tresses. I have seen my girlfriends making monthly appointments to their hair stylists for retouching their pre-matured grey hair. If that dilemma was not enough, then come the after effects of brushing up chemicals on your natural hair. Hair fall, weak strands, dandruff, itchy scalp and what not. In short, grey hair only signals towards the downfall of the quality of hair.

Eating something sweet is considered as a sign of positivity. While some like have something sweet occasionally, there are people like me who literally find a reason (or not) to have a hearty bite of heaven. Delhi, being the abode to many rich cultures, comes with a significant array of desserts to boost about. With a hint of neighboring Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana with the evergreen elements of Mughal royalty; North Indian Sweets in Delhi are quite diverse. If you are a Delhiite, or know someone, you might have come across the statement “Khaane ke baad Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye” (Let’s have something sweet post the meal.), quite very often. That’s what we have inherited from the royal food etiquettes of the Delhi Mughal era! So what exactly these north Indian desserts consist of?

Available as early as 7 in the morning, this juicy piece of caramel is one of the best Sunday morning feasts, for Delhiites. Don’t complain if you got to stand in the queue to try on this one! Kulfi Falooda image source : amritsartourtravel.com Mostly available in the hot summer period of Delhi, this ice cold milk bar is different from any other Kulfi you will find in India. Topped with sweetened boiled noodles and dollops of Roohafza (rose flavored), the Kulfi comes in a variety of flavors to try from. My personal favorite is the kesar kulfi that’s full of nuts and raisins. Daulat Ki Chaat – You probably won’t have heard about this one, right? Even if you have …
