I am really enjoying Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation, reviewed here, in the rotation when I need medium coverage and since using this foundation, I am really impressed with the Dermablend formulas for my skin tone and type. I was really excited to see Dermablend Leg and Body Makeup, something which I have not tried in the past – a cream foundation for the body. I have AllEven Spray-On foundation which was spray version as compared to this Dermablend leg and body makeup foundation I have been testing for a few weeks.

Dermablend leg and body makeup foundation review and swatches

Dermablend Leg and Body Makeup is a buildable, transfer-resistant body makeup that can be used to cover a wide range of body and skin concerns, like as tattoo cover-up makeup or enhance body features for a flawless look. The formula is very pigmented and easily covers varicose veins, stretch marks, tattoos, scars, age spots, birthmarks and bruises.

Being highly pigmented, it is still lightweight, buildable and easily blends on the skin. The foundation does not dry the skin, keeps the skin hydrated and comfortable without smudging and transferring if applied and set as advised. Another nice thing I have experienced is that the formula does not look like a mask or cakey during the wear time but is very natural looking. This has become a go-to when I am wearing a dress or wearing short sleeves but I mostly use it on the legs as I have few scars and stretch marks on my legs, it just makes my legs look flawless and yet very natural. The staying power of it is really impressive, kept my legs as-is for a full day, I removed it in the evening after work. I have swatched shade 40W Medium Golden which is a bit more golden than my natural golden undertones for my skin on the body which is a little lighter than my face but I do make it work on the legs.

To apply it, a brush, a sponge, or even hands will work, I prefer a big sponge as in the picture. I have reviewed the Dermablend Loose Setting Powder here and it works pretty well to set this leg and body makeup. To apply,

step 1 apply: use long strokes to apply.

step 2build: for more coverage, allow makeup to dry before adding additional layers.

step 3 set: for 16 hours of wear, apply a generous amount of setting powder and leave on for 2-5 minutes; buff off.

Dermablend products are available at Dermablend.ca and BeautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart.

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 review

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.

Sisley Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask with Saffron flowers review

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

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.

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
