I know its been ages since i wrote my last post, everything is okay, i have been busy with two kids and stuff. Life is running too fast. Its been 7 months since my delivery of Baby no 2, a Boy. My girl is almost 4 years. Both are keeping my hands full.
I have been regular on instagram since last few weeks and with that, i am planning to be regular on my blog posts. In the past year, i have been regular with trying new stuff for my skin, hair and makeup. My skin was a total wreck after my delivery, which was totally unexpected and really scary for me. I expected my skin to be better after delivery but it was total opposite, my skin was in the condition it had never been. I had terrible hormonal acne which really effected my confidence. And when the acne came under control, it was the turn of my hair. I will share all the things that i tried and which one’s worked for me. Also, i had my trip to India for my Brother’s wedding last year, lots of fun and shopping.
I would really like to hear your experiences of postpartum acne and hair fall and what worked for you.
This is my first purchase from the Kate Somerville skin care and i am really excited to try this line of skin products. After hearing good reviews about Kate Somerville from Caroline Hirons and doing bit of my self satisfactory so called research, i decided to give this brand a try. The packaging of this kit is very nice and sturdy.
Sephora Canada had a kit having four of the best selling products in a deluxe size. I believe this set will last me for a month. As per Sephora Canada “With efficacious botanicals, Gentle Daily Wash cleanses and conditions while removing makeup and pore-clogging oil. ExfoliKate® features scrubbing microbeads designed to deep clean pores along with fruit enzymes to clarify and renew skin, balancing hydration without over-drying. Patent-pending DermalQuench Liquid Lift® produces both immediate and long-term results by combating the visible signs of aging: wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven tone, and dryness. Innovative Age Arrest Anti-Wrinkle Cream is proven to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, increase skin firmness and elasticity, improve the appearance of skin discoloration, and significantly hydrate. Revolutionary Telo-5™ technology is designed to combat the comprehensive signs of aging and deliver a younger-looking complexion. Skin is left hydrated, soft, and refreshed. ”
This set contains:
– 2 oz Gentle Daily Wash
– 1 oz ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
– 0.5 oz DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment
– 0.5 oz Age Arrest Anti-Wrinkle Cream
The packaging of Age Arrest cream looks a bit odd in the set as all other product tubes are quite nice. I am pretty sure this will not be my last purchase from this brand.

The 5 Couleurs High Fidelity Colors and Effects Eyeshadow Palette is a symbol of Dior look which always reminds of the expertise that we can give an example of in terms of color and the visual effects. The 5 Couleurs palette is reinvented in 12 color harmonies this season. It is said to be more creative, with stronger pigments and richer effects. Each color harmony is precisely worked on so that the effects and colors of one palette are easily blended with each other to create a perfectly balanced makeup.
The packaging of this eyeshadow palette is slimmer than the earlier versions, making it look more stylish. The reinvented color harmonies offer new finishes like Matte, Velvet, Satin, Lame, Iridescent, Glitter and Shiny. These harmonies are inspired by the catwalk fabrics which make the colors vibrate with multiple highlights. The formula of the new 5 Couleurs palette has same results on the eyelid as seen in the case. The pigments, in these high impact colors, are formulated into powders using binders that create a creamy application with the fingertips. The staying power of these 5 Couleurs palette is spectacular. The applicators provided with this palette are foam applicators, liner applicator, and long eyeshadow brush.
‘For a natural look, apply the medium shade on the entire eyelid with the round foam tip to open up the eyes, and then the darker shade along the lashline with the liner tip for definition. Using the brush, highlight with the lighter shade beneath the brow arch and at the inner corner of the eye to widen the eyes.
For a sophisticated look, apply the medium shade on the entire eyelid with the round foam tip to open up the eyes, and then the darker shade along the lashline with the liner tip for definition. Blend over the entire eyelid and outward using the brush. Use the round foam tip to highlight with the lighter shade beneath the brow arch and at the inner corner of the eye to create even greater contrast and structure.’, from Dior official website.
Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow 757 Dream Matte is a matte palette with a mix of cool and warm shades.
They are quite pigmented and blend so easily. The texture of this eyeshadow is very soft, they are no grainy or dry. For a matte eye shadow, it is important to be not soft and not stiff, which helps them blend easily and does not accentuate any fine lines.
These eyeshadows are quite a good combination of quality and combination of shades. All the harmonies are created so well and they are close to each other making them blend so well with each other. I am a fan.
The 5 Couleurs High Fidelity Colors and Effects Eyeshadow Palette retails for CAD $72 excluding taxes and is available at all Dior retailers and sites including Sephora.
