Yves Saint Laurent Beauty has launched a new matte lipstick with sheer lightweight colour called Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Sheer Matte. The formula is very lightweight and comfortable to wear. It is not drying and glides on nicely on the lips while giving the desirable coverage – it is easily buildable. The unique square bullet design makes for a neat and precise application.
The slim silver and black packaging look very elegant and the unique square bullet design makes for a neat and precise application. There is a light scent to the lipstick which dissipates quickly. The sheer formula is perfect for everyday use and is easily buildable with more swipes. The shades look very natural on the lips with one swipe.
Below are the shades I have swatched in this post:
101 Rouge Libre – Vibrant Cool Red
109 Rose Denude – Vivid True Pink
111 Corail Explicite – Tropical Coral
112 Raw Rosewood – Soft Rosy Nude
The staying power of the lipstick is pretty nice for sheer coverage and matte finish, just that it looks very natural and sheer with one swipe. It does not dry my lips. The lipstick looks beautiful in the bag or on the vanity with the slim bullet gives an edge of sophistication. The formula is smooth and light.
The NuFACE Mini is an FDA-cleared, handheld facial toning device that helps improve facial contour, facial tone, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, all in a convenient travel size. With all the benefits of a microcurrent treatment in a petite, portable and powerful device, the Mini targets to deliver unparalleled professional results and is easy to use in as little as 5 minutes per day. It is shown to improve facial contour, facial tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Mini device stimulates the larger surface areas of your face and neck with gentle microcurrent, going beyond skin deep to improve facial contour, facial tone and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you’ve never heard of a microcurrent facial, you might be interested to know that they are often referred to as ‘natural facelifts’ or ‘non-invasive facelift’ – and you might be even more interested to know that you can now achieve one at home with NuFACE’s Facial Toning Devices. The NuFace mini emits extremely low-voltage electrical currents that mirror the body’s own electrical currents at a cellular level. This cutting-edge tool is known to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production, miraculously reducing signs of ageing. It is effortlessly easy to use in as little as five minutes, by simply apply a gel primer (included), adjust the intensity and glide along your brow, cheekbone, forehead and jawline areas to lift, tone and contour. Interestingly, NuFACE’s clinical tests have proved that the device improves the facial contour, as well as minimizing wrinkles and leaving skin even and radiant. The rave reviews everywhere about this device made me even more excited about the device’s extraordinary efficacy.
Without waiting, I indulged in this gadget which has gotten me so excited about it. (I so wanted this to work, even before trying it.) I have been using it for over 6 weeks now and already so glad about the results. To let you know, I am 35 and do notice some problem areas on the face. I know you might say it is too early maybe? But I do believe in preserving what I have and age gracefully. I started taking serious care of my skin since I turned 30 and with time and consistent routine, I have noticed my skin has improved. Even 6 weeks might not be enough time to review this device but I will try my best. And definitely I will keep you posted more as I use it more, as an update every few months on my Instagram or here, whichever way works easily for me. The first difference I noticed in my skin since I started using NuFace Mini is how fresh my skin looks. This innovative device has toned my skin to improve its facial contour, giving a visible ‘lift’ while minimizing wrinkles, problem areas and working towards more radiant, youthful skin. My jawline is definitely more defined now, not just me, my colleagues have noticed that too. I would not have believed it, even after watching many people post their before after pictures but now that I am using it, I feel like those reviews are all true. This device works.
There is NuFace Trinity which comes with different attachments for eyes and more, is the bigger size as compared to mini but I have been using this smaller edition pack with all the benefits packed into a petite, portable and powerful device, perfect for on-the-go use or for an introduction to microcurrent technology. This little gadget though has really tightened everything up and improved the overall texture of my skin. I use a little hand clicker to make sure each side of my face gets the same attention – it’s time consuming and a bit tedious but definitely worth it. I use it before bed, 4-5 times a week.
NuFace Mini Facial toning Device is definitely something that you can try out, and then you can move on to the Trinity or the other devices from the brand as you go along. NuFace devices are available at NuFace.com*Press samples

The formula of the eyeshadows had an ultra-sensory texture melts onto the skin and leaves an ultra-fine smoothing film. The texture of the eyeshadows is very lightweight and smooth, provides softness and comfort to the delicate skin on the eyelids. All the 20 shades, with light and color mixed, in the purest form to make the eyes sparkle, are adaptable to all skin tones.
The eyeshadows are nicely pigmented, one swipe is enough to give a cwash of colour to the eyes and is easily buildable. Sisley’s light-reflecting mother-of-pearl does amazing job of making the eyeshadow pigmented, luminous, sheer, and long-lasting at the same time for the ultimate radiant eyes. The eyeshadows melt on the skin and look very natural. The shades work well alone and also in combination or on top of one another. It does not settles onto the crease or accentuate the lines. Besides the formula and shades, the packaging of these single colour eyeshadows is so elegant as well as lightweight. The eyeshadow brush included works pretty well too.
I was a fan of Phyto Ombre Eclat for years now and so happy to have found something that I am even more impressed, the eyeshadows have become a new favourite. I wear all the shades I have swatched, depending on my mood and occasion – I wear a sheer wash of colour and radiance for everyday office look and go a little heavy hand otherwise. I definitely recommend you to check these eyeshadows. Sisley Paris Products are available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Sisley-Paris.ca*Press samples
