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 537 Touch Matte is a neutral matte palette with shades that are wearable for most skin tones.
The formula is lightweight and they are easily blendable. The pigment can be easily build up based on the requirement.I usually am not a fan of matte eyeshadows but this looks quite wearable for me. The shades are very soft and neutral and can work for both day and night looks.

Being in the century where there are multiple factors affecting the skin, there may be countless options to resolve them. Since the time I purchased Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion for the first time a few years back, it has been a staple in my body care favorites. I am always looking for offers and deals where I can purchase the backups for one of my favorite body lotions. My skin tends to get extra dry during fall and winters, so to keep the dryness which also causes itchiness away, this works wonders. It keeps my body moisturized for over 24 hours, what can I ask for more, right?
Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion (CAD $55 – 400ml, $44 – 200ml) is described as moisture-replenishing lotion—with Peach Milk, Shea, Candlenut Oil and Orange Blossom—visibly minimizes the signs of aging caused by sun, cold, heating and air-conditioning. It helps smooth dry, rough patches and improves skin tone. Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion gently removes dull, flaky cells for a youthful, allover glow. The featured ingredients in this body lotion are Oats, Shea, and Bitter Orange.
Another good thing about this lotion is it absorbs very quickly into the skin, that means even if I use this in the morning and have to run to work, I do not have to worry and wait for few minutes to let the lotion be absorbed before dressing up. The consistency of this lotion is not very thick but it is very moisturizing. It is very soothing and comfortable for my dry skin. I do not just use it in winters or fall, but it works great in all seasons. The scent is very delicate which I love. I have noticed my skin is very soft and smooth with this body lotion.

What is your favorite body lotion for the winter months?
Hi Lovelies, today i am going to write my experience of the Aveda Brilliant Spray-on shine for my dry hair. I have used this product for the past few years on and off. My hair are dry, frizzy and my scalp is kind of combination, it gets oily next day after wash. Taming the frizz and fly-aways has always been a difficult job and i am always in hunt for a product that is good enough not to harm my hair but also works.
I have used this product on and off for the past few years but last few months i have been regularly using it. And here i am writing my reviews for same. The product comes in a very bright blue plastic bottle and has a spray nozzle over it. When i bought this product, the representative at the Aveda store used a small quantity on my hair, just a single spray amount. So, i too started using the minimal quantity as i didnt want to make my hair greasy in the first try of the product. I sprayed twice on my palm, keeping the nozzle very close to my hand and applied it to my hair after rubbing both the palms together. I have always used this on dry hair. After applying this on my hair, i make sure to comb my hair with a paddle brush so that the product gets to all hair. And it gives instant results, my hair look soft and shiny. There are less fry-aways and frizz is the least.
One thing i have noticed is that if i go above the spray twice limit, my hair start look like a bit greasy, so i think the quantity of product matters here, it may be different for different length and kind of hair, but i would recommend starting from minimal and then stick to the perfect amount once to achieve the desired result.
Overall, the product is good and can be used on all hair types. It can be used on dry hair prior to using a flat iron to get a smooth, sleek finish with added shine. It has not weighed my hair down, can be used daily.
