A subtle pop of dewy colour for lips and cheeks. The nourishing tint with safflower, jojoba and sunflower seed oils feels luscious yet lightweight. Fluid-gel formula slips on with ease thanks to a convenient wand applicator that delivers the perfect amount every time.
This is a brand new launch from Clinique for spring 2016. It has a liquidy, lip gloss like feel but without any stickiness, which is great! The formula is lightweight and nicely moisturizing with a sheer to medium color payoff. I got the shade Black Honey Glow which is perfect for fall/winter months. The only thing I didn’t like is that the color doesn’t last very long. I have tried it only once on my cheeks and it gives me a subtle, dewy flush of color that looks pretty!
Kiehl’s “instant facial” masque brightens and energizes the look of dull, fatigued skin and restores a healthy, rosy appearance. Formulated with Cranberry and Turmeric, this invigorating formulation helps to visibly even the look of skin tone, while crushed Cranberry Seeds gently exfoliate for smoother, brighter, illuminated looking skin.
This is a new face mask from Kiehl’s that combines turmeric with antioxidant packed cranberry extract to provide an instant pick-me-up for dull, tired skin. Turmeric has always been known for its healing, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and brightening properties. Did you know that in India, it’s an ancient bridal ritual where brides-to-be are covered from head-to-toe in a mixture of turmeric and sandalwood powder on the morning of their wedding to give their skin a radiant glow! I got the turmeric facial too on my big day and now I have this instant face mask to get me glowing in just 5-10 minutes, whenever I want!
Infused with the finest French “cashmere talc,” this non-dusty, non-drying translucent powder sets makeup and creates a flawless finish. A unique light-reflecting ingredient creates a soft-focus appearance that smoothes away fine lines and imperfections. The translucent shade looks and feels natural on all skintones, and creates a flawless finish. Use it to add a velvety finish to any makeup or for a bit of color and coverage when foundation is not worn.
I had heard great things about this loose powder from my fellow beauty aficionados and after trying it out, I have become a fan too! It is so finely milled and I love its silky feel! It doesn’t make my skin look dry or leave a chalky/powdery finish and does a great job of setting my makeup and under eye concealer. It definitely lived up to my expectations and helps my makeup stay put all day!
Gucci Power Liquid Liner ($38)
Gucci Power Liquid Liner defines the eye with a clean line of saturated black color in just one swipe. Achieve a dramatic long-lasting glossy finish through a combination of a high intensity black pigment and precision applicator. The innovative nib features a protected fiber core, designed for precise control and remarkable versatility to create thick or thin strokes. 12-hour waterproof and smudge-resistant wear.
This is the first time I have tried Gucci makeup and I love it! I am usually not a fan of liquid eyeliners anymore….why deal with the fuss? But this one is a fabulous find with amazing pigmentation and a super smooth glide on the eyes…color me impressed!

High-impact and high-drama in the blink of an eye. Designed exclusively for this mascara, the jumbo brush head grabs and visibly pushes each and every lash upwards, while the rich, carbon-black formula intensely thickens, curls and lifts lashes from root to tip for the ultimate eye opening effect.
As you guys probably know, I don’t use masacara on a regular basis and apply one only when I am dressing up for a special ocassion or party. Well, nevertheless I am happy to have this fabulous mascara from Bobbi Brown in my stash! It really gives me va-va-voom lashes in an instant!
SK-II Facial Treatment Mask (10 Sheets, $135)
A luxurious facial mask with an indulgent concentration of Pitera™ in a single application. Your skin is immediately and exceptionally immersed in moisture, resulting in a visibly radiant and crystal clear complexion.
This radiance and moisture-enhancing facial mask is one of the bestsellers of the SK-II line! It drenches the skin with Pitera’s fusion of vitamin, amino acids, minerals and organic acids, while working to revitalize, comfort and provide intense hydration. The 100% cotton mask has a super soft and luxurious texture that feels so good your skin and I love how it leaves my complexion glowing! This is perfect before a special occasion or anytime your skin needs a pamper session!
An easy five minute foaming gel mask: Innovative, oxygenating cleansing agents replace harsh detergents and drying clays to deep-pore-cleanse, lifting dirt, oil and make-up away from the skin without irritation, while creating a physical barrier to seal hydration. Complex amino acids and natural almond extract gently and effectively purify, clarify, balance and soothe. Stable Vitamin C, anti-oxidant Vitamin E and Soy Protein help firm and address concerns for aging. Natural fragrance and color.
This is a deep cleansing and purifying face mask designed to be used one to two times per week. I haven’t used it yet but from the description it sounds like a nice product, especially for oily skin types!
