There are more new launches from Rodial, I have been really enjoying the Rodial Soft Focus Glow Powder and Collagen Lip Lacquers I shared last month. The new launches include Rodial Diamond foundation, Microblade Eyebrow Effect Pencil, and Bronze-Tour Powder. All three products are something I use every day, so it was very amazing to test and assess how they work for me.

Rodial Diamond foundation, Microblade Eyebrow Effect Pencil, and Bronze-Tour Powder

Rodial Diamond Foundation is a lightweight perfecting foundation that delivers medium to high coverage and boosts skin’s luminosity for a radiant complexion. This satin formula has a feather-light skin feel that blends effortlessly for comfortable wear without drying or flaking. The formula blur and even skin tone and pores, while Diamond Powder and other luminosity boosting ingredients enhance radiance for a flawless look. The packaging of this foundation is in a pump bottle and one pump is enough for my face.

I have been using this to work every day and looks natural, radiant, and stays on all day. It did not emphasize my dry areas neither it made the oily areas oilier. I did not experience any irritation and breakouts with this foundation. It works nicely with or without powder over it. I have swatched two shades 04 and 05 in this new foundation below. 04 suits my medium skin tone with golden undertones. I am hoping that 05 will suit my skin tone during the summers.

Shade 04 – Light/ Medium beige, with neutral, cool undertones for medium skin tones

Shade 05 – Medium beige, with golden undertones for medium, olive skin tones

Rodial Bronze-Tour Powder is a bronzer/contour hybrid to get a naturally defined, sun-kissed glow. ‘The shade is a mix of the ashy tones of contour and bronze shades of a bronzer, enabling bronzing and sculpting to be done in one sweep.’ The powder is finely milled and blends seamlessly into the skin for a flawless finish. This universally flattering bronze toned shade suits all skin tones to enhance facial contours and add a natural warmth to the complexion. It can also be used on the eyelids and the sides of the nose. The bronzer looks really natural on the skin without looking greyish or ashy on my medium skin tone.

Rodial Microblade Eyebrow Effect Pencil is a creamy brow pencil to define and enhance the brows. The calligraphy tip of this pencil allows a tailor-made stroke to suit your unique features. The brow pencil gives light color with less pressure and deep intense color with more pressure. The tip works nicely to mimic the hairs in the brows. It stays on well for the whole day. I am using the shade Dark Ash Brown for my dark hair.

Overall, I am really loving these three new launches – Rodial Diamond foundation, Microblade Eyebrow Effect Pencil, and Bronze-Tour Powder from Rodial which are definitely worth checking out based on what you need. The packaging and performance of the products are both great. Rodial Makeup is available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale, and Beautyboutique.

You might have some idea of what this post and range of haircare products is about from the title of the post. I know I am late in sharing about this range as many of you asked for it since I shared about them in my Instagram stories. Vichy Dercos Densi-Solutions is all about thick, strong hair.

I have shared about my concerns regarding my scalp and hair in the past too, I am always on the lookout for something that will help my sensitive irritated itchy flakey scalp and also help with my rarely-growing hair which is in need of density and strength. I have used this range for over three weeks and at first, I was pleasantly surprised that is it this hair care range that is working or is it something in my diet or routine. Finally, I am able to conclude that this range works. I have three products from the range that I am using religiously which I believe helped texturize fiber and give body and vigor to hair.

The whole range, with three products, once applied gives hair an instant cooling effect to stimulate microcirculation as the shampoo. It also has an invigorating and refreshing fragrance.

Dercos Densi-Solutions Thickening Shampoo improves hair to appear thicker and stronger, leaving hair fibers healthier and easier to style. It gives hair an instant cooling effect to stimulate microcirculation. It has invigorating and refreshing fragrance.

Densi-Solutions Fortifying Thickening Balm slips between scales of weak hair to restore strength and reinforce hair cuticles. It has a melting texture. It makes my scalp feel super refresh because after massaging it into the scalp I get a nice tingling sensation that lasts even after the rinse.  My hair feels thick and works as a nice conditioner too.

Dercos Densi-Solutions Hair Mass Thickening Concentrate acts from the scalp for visibly stronger and denser hair. It is formulated to target weakened and damaged hair.

Overall, I am pretty impressed with this range, all the products work nicely in harmony with each other. My hair looks and feels strong, voluminous, and shiny. The tingly sensation makes me feel like its working, and these never irritated my scalp or made my scalp flaky or itchy. I do plan to keep using them and will repurchase. I am seeing and feeling a positive difference in my hair and scalp. Vichy Dercos Densi-Solutions Hair products are available at Vichy.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart, Beautyboutique.ca
