I have been a fan of Sisley face masks and always reach out for them for a quick fix or for my skin’s regular maintenance. A new mask from the brand did excite me so much and after using it for over a month, here I am sharing my thoughts. Sisley Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask with Saffron flowers is formulated to give a well-rested, soft, comfortable, and revitalized skin.
Sisley Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask with Saffron flowers is a must-have for dry skin, giving the nourishment and moisture to the skin by making up for the lack of water and lipids. The cocktail of powerful key plant-based ingredients nourish skin, restores its suppleness and softness, and long-lasting hydration. The plant-based glycerin and Pro-Vitamin B5 in the formula hydrate the skin. Extract of Saffron flowers is the key ingredients of the range which releases its positive effects throughout the night to bring the skin absolute comfort. The airy, smooth texture of the mask envelops the skin in softness. The notes of honey and orange flowers delicately scent the skin and soothe the senses.
The Velvet Sleeping Mask can be applied twice a week in a thin layer on the face and neck instead of regular skincare, even a perfect product to reach out to when not in the mood for the skincare regime and still want the healthy, nourished, well-slept skin in the morning. The mask absorbs into the skin in a few minutes and stays put without transferring to pillowcase. I have used Velvet nourishing cream during the winters and was a big saviour for the harsh weather, complementing it with this new mask can be the perfect regime for dry skins. The mask can also be applied for 10 minutes in a thick layer as an SOS mask for smooth skin and soothing benefits.
After using the velvet sleeping mask overnight, the skin is relaxed, revitalized, supple, and nourished in the morning. The complexion is velvety soft as the name suggests while the look of the skin is radiant. Sisley Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask with Saffron flowers is available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Sisley-Paris.ca*Press samples
Buxom has launched Full Force Plumping Lipstick which is a full-coverage lipstick and available in a wide range of shades. I have only tried Full-On Plumping Lip Cream Gloss which I am still a fan of, means it really left a good impression on me about the Buxom lip products and not to forget the Power-full Plump Lip balm which is a lovely lip balm.
Buxom Full Force Plumping Lipstick is a full-coverage, creamy lipstick that smooths and fills for fuller-looking, plump, and soft lips. The lipstick saturates lips in satin colour with a tantalizing tingle. The hyaluronic acid and conditioning oils smooth and hydrate, while the teardrop-shaped tip effortlessly hugs every curve, every time for fuller-looking lips in one stroke.
Buxom Full Force Plumping Lipstick is available in 15 shades and I have swatched them below:
Baller – True Red
Winner – Ruby Red
Powerhouse – Fire
Icon – Nectar
Mover – Soft Pink
Influencer – Spiced Brown
Rockstar – Mystery Mauve
Gladiator – Deep Plum
Dolly Dreamer – Mauve
Lover – Cranberry
Hot Shot – Warm Orange
Badass – Grape
Triple Threat – Deep Nude
Boss – Cinnamon
Goddess – Beige
Shaker – Candy Pink
The formula of this lipstick is so silky and smooth, glides on like a dream or it is better to say it just melts on the lips. On my lips, I did notice a tingle on the lips which is almost similar to the Full-on plumping lip gloss from the brand and the result is subtle but noticeable plump look of the lips. The finish is glossy satin.
The formula is medium to full coverage and easily buildable, does not accentuate the lines or dry lips. It is moisturizing on my dry lips. The lipstick stayed on for a nice time like over 2-3 hours without reapplying. And finally coming to the packaging, it is so pretty case and looks good on the vanity as well as very handy in the bag.
Overall, Nice formula and beautiful shades, very comfortable to wear plus a hint of plump lips – why not. Buxom Cosmetics are available at Sephora and Sephora.ca*Press samples
With summery and warm vibes, Buxom has launched Boss Babe Betty Eyeshadow Palette with 12 shades ranging from sultry mattes to sparkling metallics. The palette features a shade range which is all you need for day time as well as a night time look. The palette has new and best-selling shades of very pigmented, primer-infused eye shadow formula in a range of finishes, so you can really play with the shades and be creative.
The shades in the palette are below:
Cashmere Craving – soft ivory matte
All Access – golden white shimmer
Gold Status – warm gold shimmer
Invite Only – terracotta matte
Crazy Rich – golden copper shimmer
Faster – golden orange shimmer
For Real – soft copper metallic
Upgrade – copper rose glitter
Werk – reddish-brown matte
Boom – rust brown metallic
Bronzed Bod – deep bronze shimmer
Unapologetic – deep chocolate-brown matte
The formula of the eyeshadows is very pigmented. The shimmery and metallic shades are more smooth than the matte shades but the matte shades also work well with a blending brush. The formula blends, builds, and stays on nicely on the lids without fall out or creasing on my lids for over 6 hours without primer.
The shades are beautiful and I like how they complement each other in the palette to create multiple eye looks. For me personally, I use a matte shade as a base and then use the shimmer or metallic shade to give a hint of shine and works well for me even at work. But of course, this palette is giving me the motivation to explore my creativity. The packaging is so pretty, the palette is lightweight, slim, and will store easily. I still love the blushes and gloss from the brand I reviewed here if you are looking for nice summery blush and lip products. Buxom Cosmetics are available at Sephora and Sephora.ca*Press samples
