Laneige has some really amazing products which are suitable for most of the skin types. I recently emptied Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream and Serum and their Lip Mask is still one of my favorites, nothing like that. Another product I like from them is the Pre Perfecting Primer which I reviewed here. I have few skincare products from the brand which I have included in my skincare routine along with the new Laneige BB Hydra Cushion which is so much raved about by anyone who has tried it.

Laneige BB Hydra Cushion, Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel, Laneige Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Laneige Lip & Eye Makeup Remover

Laneige BB Hydra Cushion is described as the next generation of cushion, exclusive to Laneige, with unique double coating technology and new Skin Fit air cushion to uncover a new degree of beautifully radiant and protected skin. It is a global million-seller and one Laneige BB Cushion is sold every 3.8 seconds. It has received over 82 global beauty awards, isn’t that wonderful.

I have been using this new cushion since last few days and really impressed by it, the hype is all real. It is such a beautiful formula, seems like melts into the skin and makes the skin look so beautiful and radiant. The skin looks natural and the staying power is just so good, it looks great even at the end of the day. The coverage is light to medium and it blends in beautifully into the skin. There is a scent present in the product but is nice and subtle, fades in some time. I use my brush or beauty blender to apply this foundation, applies nicely in any way. The shade Coffee 35 is a bit dark for me but for a light coverage, it works okay as my summer shade but for sure I will need a light shade for winters. There is a flawless factor, means it provides some smoothing and blurring of pores. The added SPF protection is a great thing to have in any makeup product. I am really liking the dewy natural finish of this foundation.

A new addition to my eye creams is the Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel. Water Bank Eye Gel is described as a cooling eye gel to instantly address tired-looking eyes with the surge of weightless moisture. It is suitable for most of the skin types. Water Bank Eye Gel features the same superior technology for accelerated hydration, now in a singularly refreshing and quick absorbing eye awakener. Micro-sized particles of hydro ionized mineral water penetrate the gentle eye area, preventing dryness and protecting from external aggressors. In tandem with quinoa extract, olive oil, and moisture-balancing tillandsia, the skin around the eyes reveal a fresher, more radiant appearance.

Laneige BB Hydra Cushion, Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel, Laneige Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Laneige Lip & Eye Makeup Remover

It has almost the same gel-like formula and texture as the Water Bank Gel cream which is light and gives a nice cooling and relaxing effect to the skin once applied. It has a light scent to it and is very cooling once applied. It hydrates the eye area and I do feel it helps puffiness, sinks nicely into the skin and makes the eye area look brighter.

Laneige Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask is a new mask in my skincare stash. Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask is described as a leave-on sleeping mask with brightening, illuminating, and hydrating ingredients. Laneige Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask features rich brightening ampoules within a hydrating gel cream. This innovative texture helps reduce redness and diminish the appearance of uneven or dull skin tone while you sleep. The brightening ampoules feature Laneige’s Melacrusher™ Brightening Technology, which reduces the appearance of dark spots and discoloration to reveal evenly toned and beautifully luminous skin. An optimal ratio of hydrating gel cream to these ampules hydrates deeply while brightening for a softer feel. Perfect for travel, the disposable one-time-use capsules guarantee a hygienic experience each time.

I have used this mask twice and really like the brightening and hydrating it provides to my skin. I like how it is individually packed and is more sanitary than dipping the fingers into the jar every time. Even then, the little pack is enough for two nights. I applied this on my face, wait for sometime before I hit my bed. It did not stain my pillowcases or sheets. My skin feels very soft and supple in the morning. I do not go overboard with thick application, I feel it might be too much for my combination skin.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a favorite of mine, I am on my second jar of this mask and I noticed I never talked about it on the blog yet. Lip Sleeping Mask is described as a leave-on lip mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips overnight. Lip Sleeping Mask has a softening balm texture that closely adheres to lips for quick absorption. Enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants, its Berry Mix Complex™ offers a nutritiously sweet and fragrant blend of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts to indulge the senses. Its exclusive Moisture Wrap™ technology boasts hyaluronic acid and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients. A generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime helps reduce flakiness so you can wake up to lips that feel refreshed, supple, and soft to the touch.

Laneige BB Hydra Cushion, Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel, Laneige Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Laneige Lip & Eye Makeup Remover

I apply this lip mask after my skincare routine and once I am about to hit the bed at night. This has a thick consistency and spreads nicely on the lips. It feels thick and rich once on the lips. This is one of those products that I always know will work, when nothing else is helping my dry, peeling, or dehydrated lips, making them soft, hydrating, and plump in the morning. It is still on my lips in the morning which I wipe with a napkin before brushing my teeth in the morning. It is an even great treatment on the night when you know you are going to wear a matte lipstick.

Laneige BB Hydra Cushion, Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel, Laneige Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Laneige Lip & Eye Makeup Remover

Laneige Lip & Eye Makeup Remover is described as a moisturizing, oil-free makeup remover for lips and eyes that lifts away waterproof makeup. I am on my second bottle of this product and really like how gently it removes my makeup. I have my detailed review on this makeup remover here.

Laneige BB Hydra Cushion, Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel, Laneige Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Laneige Lip & Eye Makeup Remover are available at Sephora Canada.

Givenchy has some amazing formulas when it comes to lip products, I have been a long time fan of their lipsticks and review them in the past herehere and here. The newly launched Givenchy Rose Révélateur Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick is a combination of Rouge Interdit Vinyl Noir Révélateur No. 16 (reviewed here) and Rouge Interdit No.22, Rouge Interdit No. 27.

Givenchy Rose Révélateur- New Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Marble Rouge Lipstick 25 Rouge Revelateur is described as an intriguing marbled lipstick where a deep red and an edgy black melt together for long-lasting wear, vibrant, and satin color. It is concentrated within an intriguing, marbled lipstick, the shade Rouge Révélateur combines the powerful red Rouge Interdit N°13 with the mysterious Noir Révélateur, the brand’s signature edgy color. Black gives depth to the color and enhances its every facet, while a magic pigment reacts with the lips’ pH and adapts to all skin tones. This unique color offers a dark, customized shade of red. Apply first to the heart of the lips and then on the edges. For a more intense finish, build the coverage with an additional coat.

Givenchy Rose Révélateur- New Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Marble Fuchsia Lipstick in Marble Fuchsia is described as an n intriguing marbled lipstick where a luminous pink and an edgy black meet and melt together. Long-lasting wear, vibrant and satin color, the perfect made-to-measure shade of pink. Concentrated within an intriguing marbled lipstick, the shade Rose Révélateur combines the powerful pink Rouge Interdit N°22 with the mysterious Noir Révélateur, the brand’s signature edgy color. Black gives depth to the color and enhances its every facet, while a magic pigment reacts with the lips’ pH and adapts to all skin tones. This unique color offers a dark, customized shade of pink that perfectly suits its every user. Apply first to the heart of the lips and then on the edges. For a more intense finish, build the coverage with an additional coat.

Givenchy Rose Révélateur- New Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick

I will start with the packaging, looking at the lipstick alone makes you appreciate the art and creation of it. The outer packaging is a signature Givenchy packaging, the only difference is the red and pink color edge on the fabric of the cap matching the lip color inside. It looks so bright and classic shade matching with overall black packaging on the cover. Now the formula, I would say Givenchy has one of the best formulas and this is no exception.

Givenchy Rose Révélateur- New Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick

It is very moisturizing and it never dries my lips. I always have one of my Givenchy lipsticks in my bag because I know when my lips are peeling or feel dry, and I need some color which will not emphasize the dryness, this will work for me. I have been using this lipstick for last few days and this works as I expected, amazing formulas.

Givenchy Rose Révélateur- New Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick

Now, coming to the finish, the lipstick has a satin finish which looks beautiful. It makes the lips look youthful, very subtle shine, which is almost natural plus the color. The shades of these new launches, I have been having a hard time choosing which one I like most. Unless many other pinks and reds, these will suit most of the skin tones. The pink is a perfect pink, the undertones are kind of balanced to make it a nice pink for everyone.

Givenchy Rose Révélateur- New Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick

The red shade is great for every day as well as occasional use, the shade is really beautiful. I have been using one-two swipes of these lipsticks for a wash of color to the lips and it builds it up with more swipes to get intensity. The staying power of the lipstick is nice, for the subtle wash of color, it stays on well for over two to three hours but for the intense look, it stays even more until I feel the need to reapply after three to four hours.

Givenchy Rose Révélateur- New Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Marble Rouge Lipstick 25 Rouge Revelateur and Givenchy Rouge Interdit Marble Fuchsia Lipstick Marble Fuchsia is available at Holt Renfrew, Sephora Canada, and Sephora.

After the long weekend here in Canada, it has been a really long week for me. With a wedding, birthday party, guests, and work assignments, I have been looking forward to writing and sharing with you some amazing products from Surratt Beauty I have been testing since last few weeks. There is no doubt on the range of products and their quality, everything is exceptional which I have tried in the past, eyeshadows, and lipstick here and blush here. The new lid lacquer had been on my radar since it launched this year, as all the products are so versatile, exceptional in quality that you can use the product in different ways. Same with the lid lacquers, they work great on the eyelids as well as lips and even as a highlighter or blush depending on the shade, there are no rules when it comes to these products. Along with the lid lacquer, there are more products I have been using from the brand which I have been really liking as shared further in this post.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer is described as a unique eye gloss which creates a lustrous glow for eyelids. It is inspired by a Japanese lacquer technique called urushi, this non-sticky formula features rich pigments suspended in a moisturizing, dewy base. The finish can be either sheer or vinyl-like and can have either a wash of color or a deep opacity. The high-gloss effect provides a modern alternative to traditional shadow.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

I have been using the lid lacquers almost every day and absolutely in love with them. They have the beautiful glossy finish which is always my favorite look on the eyes. The formula is very lightweight and very creamy, glides on really effortlessly. It gives a beautiful wash of color with the subtle yet glossy finish. They are non-sticky and perfect for one eyeshadow look or to layer with others. The range of shades is amazing, can work for every day as well as for editorial looks.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

The packaging of these lid lacquers is in a black lacquered mini compacts with red writing. As for the application, I highly recommend you start with the tiniest amount of product. The time I have been testing them, a little extra means it will crease. I want to stress by using a little to layer and then use more for the next layer. They can be used with fingers if you have firm control to be precise with the application, it can be used with the eyeshadow brushes for blending and even application while using fingers where needed, and it can be used with the foam applicators designed by Surratt Beauty specifically for these lid lacquers. As the name suggests, lacquer means you have to use it as a lacquer, a precise and thin layer and then build up as needed. It stays on well on my eyelids for almost all day, a sheer wash of color or a little more on the lid, the glossy finish, just perfect of what I like for my everyday effortless natural look.  I have the shades Komugi, Kogecha, and Kira Kira. Komugi and Kogecha I can use for my daily routine and for work, Kira Kira is more of a highlighter for my skin tone or a beautiful fun and shiny eye color for evening or occasions.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

Komugi is a gleaming taupe which is buildable, it has no shimmer

Kogecha is a melted chocolaty bronze with a radiant satiny finish

Kira Kira is incandescent crystalline gloss

Surratt Beauty Artistique Blush is a long time favorite and I have reviewed them in the past in detail. The texture of the blush is very fine, they are pigmented and blend very easily. The product is made with an exclusive Japanese Slurry leaves method which makes the product very soft with a satin finish on the skin. The Japanese tradition of minimal elegance is what is implemented here too, the product in the pan might look dark or light but once applied it gives the most beautiful natural glow and color. I have been impressed with the texture and the results. A small amount is all that is needed and the results are amazing. The color payoff is good, the formula is cream-like, silky smooth and blends easily. The new shades I have been testing are Halo, Flamme, and Cantaloup.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

Halo is a divine golden highlighter – bright, golden yellow with warm undertones and a frosted, sparkling sheen

Flamme is a molten heat – medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a gold, frosted shimmer

Cantaloup is a golden melon – perfect peach with yellow undertones, no red or orange undertones

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

Surratt Beauty Surreal Skin Foundation Wand is described as a skin-perfecting foundation wand that’s a foundation and a brush in one. The Surreal Real Skin Foundation Wand leaves your skin looking flawless. Its innovative design makes application easy, and it instantly melts into skin, reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines. With a number of shades to choose from, it’s perfect for every skin tone. This foundation features a self-setting, oil-free formula that provides an invisible, medium-to-full coverage and a long-wearing finish. It dispenses foundation through a brush for effortless application and quick touch-ups.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

As you see the packaging, it is a very innovative product with brush and product in the same wand, and also the black sleek cylindrical tube looks amazing. The foundation comes out from the brush side when you click from the opposite side of the wand, it takes a few clicks to get used to how much product dispenses depending on your need. The formula is creamy and blends beautifully into the skin. The finish is natural and glowy, which I am a fan of. The coverage is medium and covers most of my problem areas by building it up.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

The staying power of the foundation is great, stays on well for over 8 hours on me and does not oxidize. I usually apply the product on the face in dots and then blend and buff with my other foundation brush or my beauty blender. I am really impressed by how natural and radiant my face looks with this foundation. It does not cake, or settles into my problem areas or even the dry areas. I have shades 4 and 7 which both work well for me, shade 7 for the whole face and shade 4 as a highlighter or concealer. Overall, the foundation is going to be on my favorite’s list.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

Surrat Beauty Surreal Skin Concealer is described as a long-lasting concealer that erases dark circles and offers surreal coverage. This creamy concealer stick helps vanish under-eye circles, dark spots, and discoloration. The enduring, opaque formula becomes one with skin and outlasts hot lights and long days. This is a beautiful product which is creamy and very lightweight. It blends seamlessly into the skin while concealing the problem area. It does not make the area cakey or dry. I use it to cover my problem areas on the face including the dark spots left by my acne, the pigmentation and also works nicely under the eyes to brighten up the area. The staying power is nice, and I do set this concealer with a loose powder. The bullet stick is easy to dab on and then smooth with my finger or a brush. It does not settle into the problem areas or lines. The finish looks natural. It is one of the best concealers I have used after my Cle de Peau Beaute and Laura Mercier Concealers.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

Surratt Beauty Relevée Mascara is described as black lengthening and defining mascara for creating impossibly long, arched lashes.  Its slim, angled brush lifts, arches, and gracefully fans out lashes, while the humidity-proof Japanese tubing formula hyperextends them with microfibers. The formula shrink-wraps around lashes, preventing smudges or fallout. It is a really nice mascara for giving some length and volume to the lashes, the gel-like formula does not flakes or clump. It stays on well all day, the lashes look long and thick. It is super pigmented, the richest black I’ve ever seen.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

Surratt Beauty Expressioniste Brow Pomade is described as a clear, flexible wax formula works to lift, shape and hold each and every brow hair in place in one sweep. The comb-like brush grooms hairs with ease in a colorless, undetectable finish. If you see in the finish, you might think is it glue like and waxy white product but it dries clear, looks so natural, without any stiffness on the brows. It is undetectable on the brows and gives beautiful brows on sleek. The applicator takes few turns to get hold off but once you get used to it, it is going to be a favorite. It does not clump the hairs together or make them feel dry and crispy, Instead it fluffier, fuller, smooth and keep your brows in place all day long.

I am really impressed with all the Surratt Beauty products I have tried till now and these new additions are definitely going to stay in rotation for as far as I can see. I highly recommend you to check out these products if you are looking for the foundation, concealer, eyemakeup products, blushes, or the brow products, they know what they are creating and for whom they are creating, very practical products that are perfect for everyday use. You can read my previous reviews on their products which I linked in the starting of this post. Surratt Beauty is available at Sephora Canada, Beautylish, Sephora, Barneys New York, CultBeauty, and Net-A-Porter

On this National Lipstick Day, I am sharing the lip products I have been liking from Pur Cosmetics. I have been really liking the 4-in-1 Lip duo from Pur Cosmetics since I tried them and reviewed them here. For me, I am more inclined towards the products which do not dry my lips, give color, hydrate lips, and the staying power is good. The two new formulas I have been trying and liking are Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick and Pur Cosmetics 4-in-1 Lip Duo. The packaging of both is beautiful and the applicator works pretty well and makes the application easy.

Pur Cosmetics - Velvet Matte & 4-in-1 Lip Duo

Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick

Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick (CAD $29) has an innovative mousse texture that glides on with ease and coats lips in a rich and conditioning burst of color in a true matte finish. It is designed with color perfecting technology, the formula does not flake or dry lips and provides a smooth and flawless finish.

Pur Cosmetics - Velvet Matte & 4-in-1 Lip Duo

The formula of Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick is richly pigmented, does not cracks on the lips. It contains Pur Agave extract offers durable hydration. There are light diffusing properties that help fill lines to create a flawless finish. The formula is nice and comfortable to wear. The staying power is really good, and the formula is quite pigmented.

Pur Cosmetics - Velvet Matte & 4-in-1 Lip Duo

Pur 4-in-1 Lip Duo

Pur Cosmetics 4-in-1 Lip Duo is a dual-ended lipstick (CAD $29) with 4-in-1 benefits. The lip-duo contains a creamy, transfer-resistant, matte lip stain on one side and an ultra-nourishing lip oil treatment enriched with moisturizers like agave and lip-plumping goodness. I have linked my previous post on this above if you are interested to read more along with the Summer 2018 collection from the brand.

Pur Cosmetics - Velvet Matte & 4-in-1 Lip Duo

The formula gently plumps, volumizes appearance of lips, conditions, and hydrates them. The staying power is really good, even after a few hours of wear, there is still stain on my lips which I really like. Depending on my mood, I just keep the matte formula on and then either top it with the lip oil for a shine and extra moisture and other times, just the matte lip color is perfect.

Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick  and Pur 4-in-1 Lip Duo are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and online at Beautyboutique.ca
