Dior never ceases to amaze me with their spectacular launches, and their new Rouge Dior line is nothing short of incredible. Gorgeous and bold shades with different formulas and finishes to help you look your best no matter what.
Enclosed in a chic dark blue and silver bullet with the inside of the cap painted red, the packaging couldn’t be more classy and chic. The red coloured cap is very reminiscent of Christian Louboutin’s red soles for me. Very alluring, the perfect touch for fall.
With over 40 new shades in different finishes, they have been divided into five major categories: Lengendary Reds, Passionate Corals, Pretty Pinks, Natural Nudes and Extremes. I received 5 of those new shades to try: Red Smile 080, Première 060, Miss 047 , Pretty Matte 576, and Superstitious Matte 789.
I know what you’re all thinking, like didn’t she have a blogpost about Gentlemen Only already? Well as seasons change so do fragrances. For fall, it is not about being refreshing unlike spring’s Parisian Break EDT, it is about being sensuous, passionate, bold, and the absolute best. Givenchy embodies all of that with their newest addition to the Gentlemen Only line with their new men’s fragrance, Absolute.
Seductive, enchanting, and haute couture… the latest fragrance for women from Givenchy for fall 2016 is the embodiment of luxury in a bottle. The timeless fragrance Dahlia Divin now comes as a Nectar de Parfum.
Dripped in luxury, the bottle is adorned with golden flakes, and amazingly, the fragrance itself has a gold tinged. Gold thread adorns the neck of the bottle and engraved on a golden plate is the signature Dahlia Divin namesake. An absolutely stunning and luxurious packaging that I can’t get enough of.
For fall 2016, Dior is embracing the warm earthy and rich red tones of the Eiffel Tower through a selection of gorgeous lipsticks for their new Skyline collection.
Dior is introducing several beautiful fall shades to their Dior Addict lipsticks as well as a stunning limited edition shade. Each lipstick will retail for CAD $43 and will be sold at all authorized Dior retailers.
Dior has been one of my favourite, if not my favourite, brands ever since I discovered makeup so you can imagine how excited I am to share with you all the Fall 2016 collection, Skyline.
A little bit about the collection before I delved into some of the beauty products. Skyline is inspired by the beautiful city of lights, Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Having been to Paris, this collection is even more precious to me as it is an absolutely breathtaking city and this collection reflects this really well.
If you’ve seen my previous post about Givenchy’s lipsticks, you’ll know that I’m rather fond of them. Their formulas are superb and the colours stunningly vibrant. For Spring/Summer 2016, Givenchy once again released a couture edition of one of their best selling shades and I was very lucky to receive one to share with you all. I received this year’s couture edition, the Magnolia Couture Edition in Le Rouge in 306 Carmin Escarpin.
Vichy has been one of the leading affordable skincare brands for years. I recently was lucky enough to be chosen for ChickAdvisor’s #VichyWorksForMe campaign where I was given 3 full size products to try. Having used Vichy in the past I couldn’t have been happier to get the chance to try Vichy products for my first campaign.
The products I was able to try as well as their review are as follow:
Vichy Normaderm Deep cleansing purifying gel ($19.95)
Forzieri Italia? Ring any bell? No? For me too, until a few weeks ago.
Because of the lack of reviews I could find regarding Forzieri, I wanted to share my experience with Forzieri. I stumbled upon Forzieri a while back on instagram when they were running their win a $1000 shoes or bag contest. I didn’t win their contest (I wish) but part of the entrant process was to sbubscribe to their email program and because of that I kept receiving promo codes so I figured I’d check them out.
Back when I was in high school, my friends would always say Dayana your skin is flawless, even my guy friends would accuse me of wearing foundation which heck I didn’t even own until my last year of high school. While I didn’t think my skin was flawless as I would get occasional blemishes from picking at pimples (I know awful awful thing to do), my skin was still much healthier in comparison to many. The reason as to why? Well genetics play a huge and important role in the way your skin is but there are many other factors as well. So I thought I’d share a quick list of tips that I use to take care of my skin.
Tip #1: Don’t wash your face too much.
You’re probably thinking what is this girl thinking..but overwashing your face actually results in dry skin so don’t do it!
I only use a cleanser at night and only if I’m wearing makeup. Otherwise, just water and soap it is. Cleansers tend to have many chemicals which with too much use can be harsh for your skin. Also, if you’re cleansing before going to bed, then there is no point in cleansing again in the morning.
My current favourite and go to cleanser is the 4 in 1 Philosophy Purity cleanser. It’s seriously a holy grail cleanser, so light, refreshing and smells great as well!
As the title suggests, I was lucky enough to have the chance to attend another Givenchy event which was once again hosted by Dave Lackie a.k.a beauty editor extraordinaire and one of the nicest person on the planet. (Totally out of context but funny enough the last event I talked about was Givenchy too🙈). Check him out on davelackie.com for amazing contests and for the chance to even attend one of his events!
Onto the Art of Pefumery which was amazing from the very first step into the room at Arcadian Court. From gorgeous roses everywhere to cocktails inspired by the fragrances that were displayed to candy stations, it was simply magical.
