New in at Lancôme Paris is their innovative foundation/makeup stick. I was lucky to receive one as part of ChickAdvisor’s latest campaign and I thought I’d do a quick review!
It comes in a cute, small tube which makes it super convenient for on the go. This convenient little stick isn’t quite like other foundation sticks out there on the market though! It is a multipurpose stick. It can conceal, contour, and highlight amongst other things. Also, Lancôme specifically created a product with several shades to suit everyone’s needs and concerns.
As for the product itself, the formula is super creamy and contains SPF 21 so you can forego sunscreen while wearing it! It’s so easy to blend and it provides a medium coverage which can be build up. I was sent the shade 410 Bisque to be used as a highlight shade, which conveniently also worked as a concealer for me.
Contouring and strobing are two of the biggest trends in the fashion world that are here to stay, at least for now. They help to define one’s best angles and to illuminate the face. Dior is embracing contouring and strobing for its fall 2016 Skyline collection through the release of the Diorblush Light and Contour stick ($48CAD).
They are available in three different shades, light, medium, and dark. What I like the most about these duos and differentiates them from other contour kits is how easy and convenient they are. With one end being the highlighter and the other the contour end, application is so easy. Just rub it directly on your face or use a brush then blend and tada!
Just because it’s fall, it doesn’t mean you have to lose the bronze-y glow that comes with summer just yet. Givenchy has the perfect products to help you keep that glow all year round with their Les Saisons collection which is part of their Summer 2016 collection.
Givenchy’s Les Saisons collection is definitely one of the coolest launches of 2016. The products are really innovative and so aesthetically pleasing. I have two products from the collection that I think are perfect to rock a bronze-y dewy look for fall.
Japanese brand Shiseido is one of the ultimate beauty brands. I recently discovered Shiseido through my favourite beauty editor Dave Lackie. It is one of his favourite brands and I can totally understand why. It is such an innovative brand and their latest campaign really showcases that.
Their Rouge Rouge campaign is aimed at finding a red for everyone out there and there are a whole 16 of them! Unlike other reds, these ones are all red tones thus the rouge rouge portion.
As an avid fan of asian beauty, I was super excited when I finally got one of their lipstick in the #CitylineBeauty giftbag. The one I got is RD503 Bloodstone. I was totally impressed with it that I thought I needed to write a review.
The lipstick itself is a rich deep red colour with very fine shimmer. It reminded me a little of the colour a geisha would wear. Despite not being the greatest fan of shimmer in my lipstick, this one worked well and wasn’t so overwhelming. It was a very subtle shimmery effect, it blended right up in the lipstick.
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.
