According to Dior, “Diorific Matte Velvet Color Lipstick is an easy-wearing matte whose secret lies in its unique use of an exceptionally soft and velvety micronized silicon powder. The “powdery” silicon smoothes color with no streaking while striking a subtle balance between hold and comfort. Unlike traditional matte makeup, this formula continuously moisturizes lips without drying them. Finer, sheerer and less opaque, Diorific Matte radiates color with a subtle velvety finish.”
I ordered this lipstick once it became available online from The Hudson’s Bay. There were four colors launched for December 2016 and I wanted to buy Fascination and Charm but Charm sold out quickly. I wanted something both classic and suitable for my skin tone and plum is always a safe bet. Fascination 880 is a classic plum shade.
First of the all, the packaging is so gorgeous, the lipstick is enclosed in a golden metallic casing which has beautiful round ends and some lined detailing in the middle. It looks and feels very luxurious.
The formula for this lipstick is full coverage, smooth and flawless. This matte has a very soft texture which feels very light on the lips. They give a very subtle luminous sheen to the lips. The lipstick does have the regular Dior lipstick scent. I am totally in love with this one and this is going to be my staple during fall and winter.
What is your favorite lipstick for fall and winter?
Marc Jacobs Beauty products have been on the top of my wishlist, whether it is their makeup or the blushes. I am slowly and steadily building up my collection from this brand. Marc Jacobs is a well-known name when it comes to fashion and now for Beauty also. I am always looking to have the products that work well as well have a nice quality, so that is natural for me to be drawn to Marc Jacobs Beauty. Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo is available in 5 shades and I picked up Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in Flesh and Fantasy from Sephora. It is so beautiful that I could not control myself to click pictures first and then touch it, you will see in the pictures I have already dipped my brush into it.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo ( CAD $57) is described as an innovative powder blush duo palette with two shades for customizable color that delivers foolproof radiance all day. This blush is infused with Japanese air powder for the perfect cheek look. Air Blush is created using a process called soufflage, means air-whipped in French, for a silky-soft, cream-like texture that blends effortlessly with the complexion. The unique striped pattern on this blush is inspired by Marc Jacobs dress.
The blush is very lightweight and very easily blendable. The light shade is meant to highlight and the darker shade is for adding color to the cheeks, I prefer to swirl my blush in both the shades and then apply on the apples of my cheeks. It gives a really natural and radiant effect to the cheeks.
The staying power of this blush is amazing, I do not have to worry about it the whole day for around 7-8 hours. If I go a little heavy handed, it still blends in so nicely. I picked up the shade 506- Flesh and Fantasy which is a medium peach and the result of both shades mixed together is radiant peach shade which looks very natural on my medium tan skin tone. The product is buildable and in my opinion, will suit most of the skin tones. The packaging of the blush is so luxurious, sleek black case with button closure.
This is one of my favorite blushes at the moment and I do not see it going anywhere from my favorites list anytime soon. Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo Flesh and Fantasy is available at Sephora Canada.
Blushes are always my weakness and when they are pink with a gorgeous packaging, i can not resist. This is Guerlain Spring 2017 limited edition blush. The packaging and the product inside, both looked marvelous online and i placed an order with hesitance. And i do want to mention the name of this blush again “Happy Glow” and i love these both words.
This is a powder blush with highlighter that imparts radiance to the complexion with a blend of pearly pigments. The blush has a sheer coverage and the finish is matte and imparts radiance to the area. That means it is safe to use during the work days. I have to consider this fact before buying any makeup that the products should be office friendly, off-course few exceptions i do not mind.
The pressed pearls of powder in this blush does Colour Correction and the stardust technology for a soft-focus perfecting halo gives Radiance which is tailored to every skintone. This blush does have a delicate violet fragrance which is not very heavy. I have used this blush with light hand and with heavy hand, and it totally looks natural and glowy on my medium pale skintone.
