Masks are a game changer for the skin if you are using the right one for your skin’s needs. I am very diligent with my skincare routine in the morning and evening, the reason is the way my skin looked a few years back and the difference I have seen in my skin since then. It was my skin at its worst, my hormones were exploding through my skin after delivering my second child and it continued for over a 4 months period, there was nothing that was working and my face was a mess. I had consulted my doctor, dermatologist, and all the home remedies, the only thing worked was my patience and being consistent with the products I was using targetting the need of my skin at that time. With my experience and testing a whole lot of products, masks have their own importance, they are actually really important part of either weekly or bi-weekly maintenance of your skin targetting the major concerns. I do agree that the products you use every day are the major active workers on the skin, but then to have those extra benefits and outcome from those products, you need to see the broader picture, to maintain what is already there. I can target my congestion by using a serum or moisturizer targetting blemish prone skin but on the other hand, I do need my anti-aging, my dark-spot treatment, my brightening products. So mixing and matching all those to create and maintain that beautiful skin is so important. If you have a story of your skin like mine, let me know and we can talk more about it. In this post, I am going to recommend, yes I am already recommending them even before I have even introduced the products, because they have given me instant as well as long-lasting results since almost over two months I have been using them, bi-weekly. I am talking about Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask and Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask.

Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask and Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask

Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask

Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask is described as a cleansing mask with red clay which immediately leaves the skin with a radiant glow. The absorbing power of the clay, in combination with plant extracts (carrot, red vine, and rosehip) and essential oils (rosemary and chamomile), helps to eliminate impurities that dull the complexion while deeply cleaning the skin. The texture of the Radiant Glow Express Mask is soft, supple, and non-drying and does not create a pulling sensation on the skin. Within 3 to 5 minutes, skin is left clean and radiant. The key ingredients include Red Vine to tone, Carrot to revitalizes and hydrates, Plant Glycerin to hydrate, Chamomile (essential oil) to soothe, Rosemary (essential oil) to cleanse and stimulate, White Clay to absorb excess sebum, Red Clay to absorb excess sebum, Rosehip to protect from oxidative stress.

Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask and Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask

For anything with clay, you might think of it to be drying or for oily skin, but this whole mixture of ingredients is nothing like that. I have been using this bi-weekly and I have seen instant results after using this mask, and those results are not for a short period of time or for a day, I fell and notice them for a longer time. My skin is toned, smoothed, and radiant. My skin looks even and fresh. I apply a thick layer of this mask on my face and neck, avoiding the eye area. I let it stay for a little over 5 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with water, and that’s it, I get fresh, radiant, beautiful, even-toned skin in just 5 minutes. It is perfect for even the days you are running late or have a tight schedule, it is recommended to be applied for 3-5 minutes which is like drinking a cup of coffee while the mask in on. The mask is great for the mornings as well as evenings, just before the party or a full day of work, when you are feeling a little dull or you need an instant brightening shot for the skin.

 

Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask

Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask is enriched with natural plant extracts and essential oils, thoroughly cleanse the skin while visibly lightening the complexion. The synergistic combination of lemon extracts, Scutellaria, and white mulberry, which have lightening properties, evens out the complexion and gives it back its radiance and transparency. The key ingredients include White Mulberry and Scutellaria Extracts to help lighten the complexion, Lemon Extract to unifies the complexion and tone the skin, White Clay (Kaolin) to absorb and remove excess sebum, gently cleanses and dislodges surface impurities, Phytosqualane (derived from Olive trees) to moisturize and soften the skin, Vitamin E to reinforce the skin’s natural defenses, Essential Oils of Lavender and Marjoram to quickly diffuse active ingredients, purifying and balancing action.

Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask and Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask

I usually use this mask on its own and other times use it for multi-masking, pairing with the Radiant Glow Express Mask. Every time I get breakouts, hormonal or due to stress, they leave dark spots on my face that do take a really long time to fade away. So anything with good ingredients and lightening is all yes for me. Along with lightening my dark spots, I need something that avoids more breakouts too. Just want to mention here that the lightning mask is not just about lightening your skin, but to even out the skin, giving a more smoother, purified and moisturized skin. I keep this mask on face for over 10 minutes. Every time I use this mask, my skin looks so beautiful, radiant, and bright from within. I can notice the difference almost instantly and it stays on for next few days, I do use the products and re-use the mask as in the application instructions to maintain the results. I do notice it works on keeping my skin clear and calm.

Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask and Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask

Overall, I am very impressed with these two masks and highly recommend you guys check them out. I would never want to be without these, actually, I do want to check more masks from the brand, they work and they work so well. Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask and Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask are available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom.

With Spring, all I can think of is florals everywhere, the bright and beautiful, full of life and colors. In this post, I have two new fragrances for women from Givenchy for the spring and summer in this post, Givenchy Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush, and Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale.

Givenchy Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush

Givenchy Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush (CAD $113 – 75ml) is a new fragrance for 2018 from the house, a new edition of Live Irrésistible from 2015. The fragrance is a beautiful mix of fresh florals – rose and peony with bittersweet aromas of cocoa beans and musk. The nose behind the fragrance is Dominique Ropion.

Givenchy Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush

From the official description, Live Irrésistible, Givenchy’s most joyful fragrance, boldly sings the praises of joy in its purest form. Its latest variation, Blossom Crush, is a sparkling and irresistibly charming Eau de Toilette that advocates spontaneity as an asset and freedom as power.
Just like its unpredictable heroine, Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush is an astonishing floral bouquet. It reveals an abundance of fresh, delicate petals of roses and peony with a twist of the cocoa bean, the unexpected ingredient which tinges the fragrance with a bittersweet note for an immediate crush.

Adorned with the Givenchy House’s trademark studs enhanced with a luminous mauve hue, the slender facetted bottle is a fresh and modern remedy against the blues.

With Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush, delicateness turns into impertinence, and the crush becomes love at first sight. Eau de Toilette Musky Floral Fresh, Bouquet of Peony and Rose, Cocoa Bean, Musk.

To me, this is more of a young sparkling fragrance for spring, fresh and delicate. I smell peony first when I spray it, the next is rose, the mix is both fresh and a little sweet, please note that it is not overly sweet. The cocoa note is subtle. So basically what I am getting is floral and musk which I am liking this season. The fragrance stays on well for over 6 hours on me and I love the feeling and smell of it in the spring and summer days. Imagine a flowery flowy dress and this fragrance, perfect combination.

Givenchy Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush is available at Shoppers Drug Mart from May 1, 2018.

 

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale is a new fragrance, a new edition of Dahlia Divin and Dahlia Divin Eau de Parfum Nude which is one of my favorite fragrance and reviewed here. Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale (CAD $113 – 75ml) is a floral woody musk scent which is very pleasant and elegant. The top notes of the Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale are bergamot and blood orange, the middle notes are magnolia, and the base notes are musk and sandalwood.

 Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale

From the official description, Dahlia Divin introduces the new Eau Initiale. The aura of a dawn full of promise. A new beginning echoing the origins of time. A fragrance that captures the divine-like power. The delicate perfume of a natural goddess, experiencing the blooming of a new, exquisite day. A fragrance designed around the magnolia, one of the earth’s first flowers. Thousands of fresh jasmine and rose petals give this fragrance its crystalline sparkle that is dressed in the sensual, magnetic elegance of woods and musk, as sublime as refined as a Givenchy Haute-Couture gown. A divine force, Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale is a delicate and sensual temptation that lures others closer. Made for a goddess who can’t help but shine, this empowering perfume creates a radiant aura of sophistication. Its fresh and sweet composition succumbs to her need for a fragrance to match her enchanting spirit. Blood orange and bergamot pour themselves over a white floral core of magnolia and jasmine. In the fragrance’s final moments, a creamy base of sandalwood and musk is revealed for a warm and exquisite dry down.

For me, it is a beautiful fragrance for women who dream to succeed and for women who are all about power, elegance, simplicity, and sophistication. I can totally wear this to my meetings and work appointments. The Blood Orange and bergamot blend really nicely together, and give a nice citrusy scent with a hint of sweetness. I get the hints of magnolia mixed with the top notes after some time. The musk and sandalwood give a nice base, make it a warm natural skin scent.

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale is available at Hudson’s Bay from April 21, 2018. Do you spot any favorite notes? Let me know which one of both fragrances do you like and would love to try.

Sisley Paris is a brand, the more products I try from them, whether skincare or makeup, the more I trust them. I am hooked on the Sisley-Paris Instant Correct Color Correcting Primer,  Sisley-Paris Phyto-Khol Star, and the Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twist Matte which I use every single day as many of you asked on my Instagram stories, which I reviewed here. I am talking about my essentials from the brand which I am absolutely adoring these days and hence are the essentials for anyone who loves the brand or who wants to get started with the Sisley Paris makeup products. I have a roundup of my essentials, which include Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist which I have been testing since last few weeks and you will see more products in the pictures below which I will link for their detailed review.

Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist

Sisley Paris Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation

Sisley Paris Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation (CAD $220) is described as an anti-aging fluid foundation which provides a youthful effect make-up, instantly and throughout the day. The complexion is radiant (complex of 2 Micas and ultra-pure pigments), the skin is smooth (unique smoothing base), make-up stays perfect for 8 hours (Sisley Color Expert technology). Its skin care formula combines many powerful anti-aging ingredients based on the latest Sisley research. Most notably, it is formulated with Persian Acacia extract, a key ingredient of Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Age, for cellular energy*, a source of radiance. The skin is more luminous and even–instantly and with continued usage. Signs of fatigue are minimized. In 4 weeks, the face appears smoother and more firm. The appearance of wrinkles is diminished. Skin is moisturized, plumped and firmer.

Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist

I have been using it for last three or so weeks and absolutely impressed with the formula. I would say, it has all the right ingredients and the formula which gives anti-aging benefits along with the giving the complexion enhancement. The formula just melts into the skin and gives a really beautiful youthful radiant complexion. The finish looks radiant and very natural. The staying power is really amazing, it last whole day on my combination skin tone. I do use a primer and setting powder on my t zone or on the areas I have used concealer. The coverage is medium and buildable. The consistency is good, not too thick or runny, blends in nicely into the skin. The foundation does not oxidize on my skin and stays beautifully radiant all day. Another thing is it did not break me out or have me any sensitivity or irritation. Apart from all the benefits that I can see on my face, means the way it looks to eyes, there are some good ingredients which are full of all the skincare benefits that ideally make it a really good all-in-one foundation. I even got so many compliments on my skin when I was wearing this to a get-together this weekend.  This is one of my top 5 foundations and highly recommend you check this out or get a sample to try first.

Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist

For my medium tan complexion with yellow undertones, I mix 3.B almond and 4.B chestnut this time of year. I was more of 3.B almond a few weeks back in winter and looking forward to 4.B chestnut in summers. To use this foundation, apply with fingertips or a foundation brush, by patting lightly over the whole face, and if desired, to the neck and décolleté. Smooth the foundation with circular strokes starting from the middle of the face and moving outwards. Start at the base of the face and work upwards to smooth lines. Pat to finish to even out the complexion.

Sisley Paris Instant Eclat

Sisley Paris Instant Eclat (CAD $115) is described as a two-in-one product – an illuminating primer and radiance-boosting skin care. A luminous complexion is easily achievable–including reproducing the same effects taught by professional make-up artists with just one step & product. Instant Eclat immediately revives the complexion’s radiance, erases shadowy areas and signs of tiredness, while it smooths and evens skin texture. A complex of key skincare ingredients (Kiwi extract, Butcher’s Broom extract and Padina pavonica extract), acts on 4 key factors that influence the complexion’s radiance day after day: moisturizing, energizing, toning, and giving a plumped look.Its fresh, evanescent texture feels like a light, second skin.Non-greasy, non-comedogenic and perfectly adhering, it may be applied immediately before or after make-up without the need for drying time.

Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist

This is a really great primer if you are all about glowy and radiant skin. I am all about the glow and radiance, which in turn makes your skin look youthful and plump. The consistency is light cream like, very smooth and blends into the skin easily. It makes the skin look fresh, toned, and radiant. I use this both before and after applying the foundation, Before foundation all over the face to boost the foundation’s radiance and hold, After foundation on the contours of the face to catch the light and highlight features. On the days of no-makeup, I use this on its own all over the face to boost the complexion’s natural radiance for a nude, radiant finish. This is a really nice primer, highlighter and an all in one product for the skin to look healthy, toned, energized, and fresh.

Sisley Paris Phyto-Blush Twist

Sisley Paris Phyto-Blush Twist (CAD $85) is described as a blush which is colored as a cream blush, as soft as a powder blush and as fun as a Twist. It has a rounded tip for easy and precise application, even without a mirror. Its cream formula with a unique sensory experience turns to powder upon contact with the skin to provide the benefits of both textures: the unique smoothing velvety finish of a powder in a long-lasting creamy texture. Non-comedogenic, enriched with Camellia oil and Shea oil, it maintains skin hydration. Luminous shades, ready to blush, boost the complexion’s radiance with just a twist.

Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist

First of all, the formula is so lightweight and the packaging is so beautiful, just so easy to apply and keep it in your bag too. The formula is very smooth, buildable, and pigmented. It blends in very easily into the skin, like literally melts to give a beautiful flush of color to the cheeks. The finish is a radiant flush of color with staying power for over 7 hours for which I tested. I have shade 2 Fuschia which is really pretty pink flush on the cheeks, just dab the cute little tip of the blush on the apples of the cheeks and I am done.

To use it, apply Phyto-Blush Twist directly to the face. Apply the desired amount of color, then blend with your fingers using circular movements. For optimal highlighting, apply the Glow shade over the shade of your choice.

1- To gently illuminate the complexion and strobe the shape of your face, use the Glow shade on the curved areas of the face.

2- To slim the face, apply the blush to the center of the cheek, then blend toward the temples. Opt for a darker shade.

3- To soften the features, apply the blush to the top of the cheekbones. For perfect application, smile broadly in front of the mirror and apply the color to the apple of the cheek.

Also, in the picture is the Sisley Phyto-Ombre Glow Luminous Eye Shadow which I have been using consistently, especially the shade amber which I reviewed here.  Another favorite for eyebrows is the Sisley Paris Phyto-Sourcils Design 3-in-1 Architect Pencil and Sisley Paris Phyto-Sourcils Fix Thickening Gel which I reviewed here and are worth checking out.

Sisley Paris Phyto-Lip Twist

Sisley Paris Phyto-Lip Twist (CAD $65) is described as a tinted balm, colored like a lipstick and shiny like a gloss. It is applied with a single “twist” and leaves the lips supple, moisturized, visibly smoothed and plumped thanks to its cocktail of original plant-based key ingredients. Its ultra-sensory smooth glide-on texture reinvents lipstick. Its luminous, easy-to-wear shades match any occasion, from virtual nude to intense color. Fun and practical, this new XXL pencil does not need a sharpener.

Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist

I am really liking the formula of this tinted balm, I would say one of my favorite formula which moisturizes and also gives color to the lips. It is very comfortable to wear, apart from making my lips smoother, I do feel they are soft, hydrated, and plump after the product is worn off. The staying power is nice, keeping in mind it is very hydrating too, it stays on well for over 4 hours with a little tint, I then reapply as and when needed during the day. I have shade 15 nut which is beautiful rosey beige and looks very natural.

Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist

To use it, applied like a lipstick the tip is the perfect size for outlining and coloring the lips in a single stroke. Apply a single coat for a sheen of glossy color, or add more for a stronger, stunning flash of color.

Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist

I do love the Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twist Matte formula which I reviewed here, I go for it on the days I need more coverage and a little matte but hydrated lips.

Sisley Paris products, Sisleÿa Le Teint Anti-aging foundation, Instant Eclat, Phyto-Blush Twist, and Phyto-Lip Twist, along with my favorites which I reviewed earlier and linked in this post, they are available at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Sisley Paris Official website if you are in the US, and House of Fraser.

There is a special thing in the product that makes it cult favorite and this is no doubt one of those products which was, is, and will always be loved for what it does. Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder is described as a loose powder with a fusion of four complimentary, complexion-refining shades that together, create a made-to-measure, color-correcting finish.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder

Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder is said to give the surreal skin perfection in four natural shades.

Upon application, imperfections appear diminished and skin looks more even and porcelain in nature, with a lasting, radiant, matte finish. The formula and the pigments are treated with an exclusive, technological atomization process that creates a perfectly uniform and natural-looking result.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder

The harmony of four lightly tinted shades unifies and enhances your complexion’s natural radiance. The sheer silky formula won’t ever turn chalky on the skin.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder

Givenchy Poudre Première Mat & Translucent-Finish Loose Powder

The powder is very finely milled and comes in a beautiful square shaped Givenchy cube. The sifter holes form the Givenchy logo which looks so pretty. There are four separate squares for each shade. I have been using these powders for quite some time now and do feel they are really amazing. They blend into the skin seamlessly without giving any feeling of powder on the face. It does not sit into the imperfections or the lines. I do notice it kind of blurs the imperfections and gives a more even-toned skin. I use it as setting powder and it gives me a nice radiant finish which is semi-matte but not overly flat kind of matte. Please note that I prefer glowy finish so I use a less quantity of this. The packaging of the powder can make it sometimes hard to get just the right amount of powder out but with use, you get the hold of how much you need to tilt it to get the right amount out of the case. I tilt a little less than 45 degrees and tip it over the cap, mix all the four shades with the brush, tap off the excess and apply. It does not emphasize the dry areas on my skin but makes my skin look radiant and fresh. Every time you use it, there is a very little amount you need, and even after using one for 3 years, I still haven’t made a dent in my first jar. I did not notice any oxidation or grey cast from these powders. It does not creases or settles in the lines, even on my mom’s skin, she is in her late 50s. The powder has fragrance, it is flowery and subtle, goes away pretty fast after application. The powder stays on pretty well for whole day and I usually don’t need any touchups with it, the natural glow is all I see all day.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder

Givenchy Poudre Première Mat & Translucent-Finish Loose Powder is a universal, transparent loose finishing powder for the face that imparts radiant complexion throughout the day. Nicolas Degennes’ featherlike, superfine, and comfortable powder applies completely sheer, and gives skin an even, matte, and naturally radiant complexion. Apply it to make-up to extend wear, or for complete simplicity, apply it over the bare or primed skin. Givenchy Poudre Première Mat & Translucent-Finish Loose Powder comes in a chic, rock-and-roll-inspired black enamel case. It includes a white microfiber powder puff.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder

If you are more into translucent powders, this is a must try. It is very finely milled, silky and gives the beautiful radiant finish. It is great to apply under the eyes or for the whole face. It just melts into the skin to give a beautiful glow and finish, the face does not look cakey at all. It does not settle into the imperfections and staying power is really good. Keeps my makeup intact for the whole day and the oiliness is not noticed. In the below pictures is the travel version of Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder in the universal shade to color correct 1 Mousseline Pastel.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder

Overall, the powders worth checking out and trying, worth the price and all the hype. A very little amount is all you need and I don’t see it going anywhere for years to come, in the context of getting over.  Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder in all the shades mentioned above and the Givenchy Poudre Première Mat & Translucent-Finish Loose Powder is available at Sephora, Sephora Canada, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Holt Renfrew.
