In Rose Noir & Oud, Rose de Mai and smoky oud are combined with hints of incense, black leather, and patchouli to create a sultry, floral fragrance. I love to have the seasonal fragrances in my house and these new scents have been an amazing addition to the overall vibe and fragrance for the season. The warm florals give a beautiful floral scent which is gentle and not overpowering. I have Rose Noir & Oud Reed Diffuser and Rose Noir & Oud Classic Candle which are new to me. There are new accessories from the brand including the Silver matchbox holder and Matchbox set.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might know how much I like the new Shiseido makeup, the products are so beautiful, the formulas glide on the skin like second-skin and the performance is great. I reviewed most of the products from the newly launched Shiseido Makeup range here in the past. I am sharing two products – one is new to me and the other is new shades of a favourite – in this post.
Shiseido Kajal InkArtist is one of the creamiest and beautiful product with enough pigment that builds on quickly to give as much intensity and boldness you want or a single swipe is perfect for everyday use. The staying power is amazing. I have been using the shades 04 Azuki Red and 05 Plum Blossom since January this year and they are like my reintroduction to colour on eyes, which in the past I did not like to experience much. They work great as an eye shadow, eyeliner, and even on the brows. The formula is very lightweight and the finish is matte. The tip of the liner with a sponge on the other side is perfect to apply and smudge.
I have two new shades on rotation – 06 Birodo Green and 09 Nippon Noir, swatches are below. This is definitely a keeper and I do look forward to using more color on my eyes.
Shiseido MicroLiner Ink is a micro-fine eyeliner with high impact pigments glides across lids with the utmost precision to deliver a weightless, smudge-proof matte inky line. The weightless, inky pencil features thermo-sensory technology that allows this formula to transform from a solid to a liquid upon contact with skin, creating a flexible, water-resistant film that lasts for over 12 hours that I have tested. The micro-thin lead can also be dotted between lashes or glided across eyes with remarkable precision and no skipping. It is available in five shades inspired by Sumi ink sticks used in traditional Japanese calligraphy and I have swatched two shades for you guys which I have been using on rotation – 01 Black and 02 Brown – both are perfect for my everyday look.
This new makeup launches are definitely , I will keep the products in the rotation since I am really enjoying them in my everyday routine. Shiseido Makeup Collection is available Sephora Canada, Hudson’s Bay, Murale, Beautyboutique by Shoppers Drug Mart.*Press samples
bareMinerals has come amazing products which have a cult following, the formulas and performance combination is something that is suitable to most of the skin types as well as to the people who have never been a fan of makeup, they treat the products as part of their skincare. bareMinerals barePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation with SPF 20 was a well-loved foundation by my skin and I reviewed in almost two years back here. I am so glad to try and share my thoughts on the NEW bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF25 with you today.
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF25 is a water-based liquid foundation in a stick that combines hydrating skincare benefits and SPF with naturally radiant medium coverage. The easy-to-blend texture melts into skin for all-day wear that’s lightweight and never cakey, with a radiant finish. Use the multitasking formula as foundation, concealer, contour or for touch-ups on-the-go. It is suitable for all skin types, especially dry skin.
The formula glides on nicely on the skin and I blend it with my fingers or a buffing brush. For my combination skin, as I like glowy and dewy base, this works like a charm. It does not make my skin look oily but is hydrating enough to not emphasize the dry areas on my face. I have swatched three shades of the foundation below. I mix shades 5 and 6 for my medium skin tone with golden undertones.
The coverage is medium and the formula is comfortable on the skin. It does not breaks or cakes during the day, with or without a makeup primer. I use a setting powder on my oily areas and I am good to go. It looks very natural and radiant on the skin. The staying power is nice stays put throughout the day with some fading at the end of the day which is normal for a medium coverage foundation. It is a nice addition to my makeup bases and the stick packaging is welcome in my travel bag.
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF25 is available at Sephora, Sephora.ca, and Nordstrom.*Press samples
