When it comes to hair care, I am as obsessed with it as I am with my other beauty rituals and routines for skincare and makeup. I keep alternating the products while trying new haircare and do stick to my staples too. I change the products for hair as the weather changes, and also as they say you should be changing the products in order for you to notice the difference and for the chemistry of hair to work on a different level or different way with the other product. By changing the products, I mean changing after a few months and I do not mean always keep on trying new products, I mean to say keep rotating on what works for you. When it comes to haircare brands which I stick to, Leonor Greyl is one of that brand. For my irritated, flaky, sensitive scalp, I was very much excited to try the new launch from the brand, Leonor Greyl Huile Apaisante.
Leonor Greyl Paris Huile Apaisante is a composition of natural oils with anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties offers an immediate soothing effect thanks to its comprehensive action. It normalizes and purifies the scalp, rebalances sebum production, reduces dandruff and redness and repairs skin’s hydrolipidic film to prevent dehydration.
The roll-on bottle allows for precise application on targeted areas. The formula is fragrance-free and contains no essential oils. This has come as a savior for my scalp this season, and the application is so easy, I have never had to give two thoughts before using it, just grab and apply, then massage lightly. I really like how soothed and calm my scalp feels which is something so important for me, you might understand what I mean if you have scalp issues.
Leonor Greyl Paris Shampooing Crème Moelle de Bambou is a luxurious blend of bamboo marrow, plant extracts, Vitamin B and silk proteins work together to nourish, detangle, regenerate, smooth down and protect your hair. It is suitable for all hair types prone to dryness and per my understanding, the weather plays a major role here, as winter is approaching, I feel my hair are prone to more dryness.
My hair feels soft, clean, shiny, healthy, and moisturized (not greasy) after washing with this shampoo. It is gentle enough to not irritate my sensitive scalp. A little product is all I need for one time and the tube lasts for a long time. I do not use a conditioner with this shampoo, otherwise, it will be too heavy for my hair. And as I mentioned it is hydrating, so it is enough for my normal wavy hair.
Leonor Greyl Paris Masque Orchidee has Silk proteins, vegetal ceramides, and oils which work together to smooth, detangle, protect and restructure hair fiber. This mask is safe for colored hair.
It leaves hair soft, silky, and manageable. Not to mention about the heat, styling products, and whatnot we use on the hair, masking the hair is a great way to repair, manage, and protect the hair. I do like to use a mask on my hair weekly or biweekly as a treatment. The mask smells so amazing as the other Leonor Greyl products.
I am really happy with the results of the products, a staple brand in my hair care routine. I reviewed Regenerescence Naturelle, Creme aux Fleurs, and Bain Traitant a la Propolis in the past and are definitely the products I still love. Glad to have these new additions to my routine. If you want to try the products, they are available in deluxe sizes which are also perfect if you are traveling. Leonor Greyl Paris products are available on Leonor Greyl Paris Website, Net-A-Porter, Cult Beauty, Nordstrom, and SpaceNK.

Something that can perfect, soothe, and brighten not only a person’s skin but her spirit and overall outlook too.

Toru Yoshikawa develops the theme and concept for each one. Together, they make art as a team, known as Ribbonesia. Some of their work is as simple and understated as origami. Other pieces are intricately tangled and complex. Inspired by forms found in nature, Ribbonesia brings out the essential beauty of the natural world around us, in three-dimensional color.‘

I am still obsessed with how beautiful, unique, and practical Givenchy Teint Couture Radiant Drop and Givenchy Teint Couture Shimmer Powder are, which I reviewed here. And hard to divide my attention between the Teint Couture Shimmer Powder and this new fall collection, I am getting over excited to share the Givenchy Midnight Skies 2018 Fall Collection with you guys. Givenchy Fall 2018 collection is a collection full of mystery, sensuality, and temptation. Nicolas Degennes, art director for Givenchy took inspiration from the famous black dress created by Hubert de Givenchy for Audrey Hepburn in the classic movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s“.

Givenchy Midnight Skies Prisme Quatuor is the star of the collection and is a must-have. Red, the guiding thread of the collection, offers an intense and luminous chromatic spectrum. The evolving colors of its natural pigments, there is transition journey from orange to pink to red. The metallic hues ensure perfect coverage and incredible shine in an endless reflection.
The palette reveals three mother-of-pearl black shades contrasting with a powerful, ultra-sensual red inspired by the rich sequins used on Haute Couture places.
First of all, the case of this Prisme Quatuor eye palette illustrates the strong bond between Givenchy Makeup and Couture, the intricate details on the case are simply an amazing work of art.
The formula is easy to apply, comfortable to wear and is long lasting. The texture is smooth and creamy, glides easily on the lids. It is easily buildable from a simple subtle hint of color to the full glam intense color. I am so stunned with how gorgeous the shades are, I am definitely be wearing them with the subtle hint of color and shine during the day and more intense during the evening. The four radiant shades in this eye palette are silver-gray, olive green, brown and red, which are all unique and thus overall a must-have palette.

Givenchy Midnight Skies Noir Interdit
Givenchy Noir Interdit Limited Edition is the same amazing formula and packaging which has a bendable brush (shade black reviewed here) in a new limited edition shade Dark Red No. 2. I am so in love with the Noir Interdit Mascara that repurchased the original black shade twice, I still have a backup and this new shade is so gorgeous, I am already obsessed with it. The brush is bendable up to 90 degrees allowing the mascara brush to penetrate deeper into the lashes, extending each lash to the perfect state of the thickest curl.
The more it is applied, the more it reinforces the voluptuous shade of the lashes. The texture of the mascara is waxy and is long-lasting, for me stays on all day without smudging or falling off. It is enriched with black rose oil and a fortifying vitamin which brings nourishment and lash-enhancing properties. The shade Dark red No. 2 is Dark Burgundy Red. The red mother-of-pearl particles create a sleek, eye-catching, and radiant glow.
