Cle de Peau Beaute’s original bestselling treatment – Lip Glorifier, which I reviewed here in the past, is now available in three new shades. The exciting thing about this one of the best and one of my favourite multi-tasker ‘Lip Glorifier’ is that each new shade has its own scent and sensation. The three new shades launched are Red, Pink, and Coral. I have swatched Red and Coral.

Cle de Peau Beaute Lip Glorifier has a natural-looking tint that enlivens the colour when layered under lipstick. The formula of the new Lip Glorifiers offers a beautiful makeup finish while locking in moisture to make the lips look and feel fuller.

I have been a big fan of the original Lip Glorifier and these newly launched shades were like I was asking for from within. It has been a saviour for my dry, chapped, uncomfortable lips for a few years now. The new formula is definitely something I was expecting after using the original version for a long time. The Lip Glorifier cares for the lips, keeps them smooth and supple while giving a beautiful natural tint at the same time. And it is not like once the product has worn off, the lips are dry again – but the lips stay soft and nourished even after – for the day.

Lip Glorifier can be used alone or as a lip primer. This has been a delightful staple in my lip care arsenal and as it is multi-tasking, works great as a lip balm as well as a lip primer/base for lipstick. It is comfortable to wear – not sticky or too thick – just the right consistency that stays on while caring for the lips. The packaging as you see in the picture is so pretty in pink. There is a weight to the packaging, and the brand logo looks beautiful in a golden engraving.

Sisley Paris has a new addition to its Phyto-Blanc Collection – and as the entire collection helps with the brightening, luminosity, and protect the skin – the new Sisley-Paris Phyto-Blanc Pure Bright Activating Serum is a clarity enhancing serum that helps with an intense, overall brightening effect and diminishing the look of dark spots.

New Sisley-Paris Phyto-Blanc Pure Bright Activating Serum review

If you already use a Serum in your skincare routine, you might know the importance of why you need a serum in your skincare routine and if you do not use one and are not aware, here is why you need a serum. The serum is designed to be applied in a thin layer after cleansing the skin but before a moisturizer, the formula of a serum delivers concentrated ingredients in a texture that allows it to absorb easily into the skin. The key ingredients in a serum target to address a very particular concern, making it an ideal addition to the daily skincare routine to see visible results in a specific area. In other words, it is a focused, targeted, and concentrated product that targets a specific skin need or concern like dullness, dark spots, wrinkles, dryness, and more.

Based on studies highlighting the phenomenon that makes the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet naturally lighter, Sisley-Paris has discovered a new, unique innovation that helps to bio mimetically reproduce this action in the face. DKK1, a dermal protein specifically produced in the fibroblasts in the palmar and plantar regions, is a natural inhibitor of melanin production. Sisley-Paris is reproducing this natural brightening phenomenon by stimulating the production of DKK1 by non-palmoplantar fibroblasts. Egyptian Myrobalan Extract reduces melanin production by stimulating the production of DKK1 by non- palmoplantar fibroblasts, which offers an intense brightening action on the face.

The formula contains a patented complex of four active ingredients acts on all four stages of melanin production for a targeted anti-dark spot action. This complex fights the appearance of dark spots on the skin’s surface. The external environment (pollution, UV, etc.) and lifestyle (smoking, stress, etc.) cause oxidant and inflammatory micro stresses leading to an imbalance of the melanocyte and the overproduction of melanin. Vitamin E acetate and Alpha-bisabolol of natural origin are powerful soothing antioxidants that fight against the overproduction of melanin.

New Sisley-Paris Phyto-Blanc Pure Bright Activating Serum review

Phyto-Blanc Pure Bright Activating Serum has been a very nice addition to my skincare routine. With combination skin that is prone to congestion and breakouts, my medium skin tone takes forever for the dark spots to fade and I was very excited to try this serum which targets pigmentation and dark spots. After using this serum for over a month now, my skin is brightened and dark spots are reduced. My overall complexion looks luminous and uniform. The creamy fresh texture glides onto the skin and transforms to leave a soft and velvety finish. It sinks into the skin without leaving any residue. I follow with my moisturizer after this serum – both day and night – of course, SPF followed by the moisturizer during the day. The makeup sits on well over it without any issues. My skin does looks bright with faded dark spots – and definitely what I was expecting from this serum. It is suitable for all skin types – I do follow with a hydrating serum or hydrating moisturizer when my skin needs some extra help – especially in this cold weather.

The Phyto-Blanc Pure Bright Activating Serum is available at luxury retailers including Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. It is also be available at Sisley- Paris.ca.

Kilian Le Rouge Parfum Lipstick review swatches of new Dangerous, Intoxicating, Prohibited, Devil Rouge

Le Rouge Parfum is like a talisman to carry close from day to night to early dawn. The lipstick is covered entirely in the brand’s emblematic Achilles shield motif engraved into black lacquer. The packaging of Le Rouge Parfum is a weighted, sensual accessory in your hand.

The inspiration behind the fragrance, “The quest of every woman to find their perfect Rouge is exactly the same as the quest to find the perfect scent. Once they find it, it becomes their signature.” – Kilian Hennessy

The lipstick is available in both matte and satin finish – each of them provides intense colour in one stroke. The matte lipstick creates ultra-matte lips with a powdery velvet finish while the satin finish is more like balmy nourishing lipstick with beautiful pigment and intensity. Both are easy to apply and comfortable during their wear time. Both the formula work well for even the dry lips, does not dry them out – I would prefer satin finish more during the winters when my lips are more dry than normal. When I want bold pigment and finish with good wear time – I prefer the matte version. The formulas are lightweight and glide on effortlessly on the lips. The matte version can go even without a lip liner – the precise shape of the bullet is perfect to apply and define at the same time. The same is the case with the satin finish lipstick, only that it has a balmy feeling to it, might feel a little bleeding due to the formula – in this case, a lip liner makes it work perfectly.

The lipstick is fragranced – it is obvious though – as it is something coming from a niche luxury brand. If you are a fan of KILIAN’s ‘Don’t Be Shy’ fragrance, you will love the scent of Le Rouge Parfum. The experience of sensuality is enhanced by embellishing Le Rouge Parfum in an enticing blend of gourmand and floral notes, a specially-created harmony of marshmallow and orange blossom. The scent of the lipstick once applied, keeps reminding you of its presence but is not overpowering.

Overall, I am really loving everything about this lipstick, be it the packaging, the formula, the shades, the performance, the scent – it is a total luxurious indulgence that smells as well as looks splendid and exceptional. Kilian Le Rouge Parfum Lipstick is available at Holt Renfrew, Sephora Canada, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
