It’s not been a long time since I shared how much I am in love with the Chantecaille eyeshadows and blush – both of which are one of the best formulas I have tried. 5 out of 7 days I am wearing the Vibrant cheek gelee blush in vibrant from Chantecaille – it has become a favourite. I was so impressed with the makeup products I have used from Chantecaille that I obviously had set a bar, very high, for the brand including the skincare products. I have been using a few products, including new launches, from Chantecaille for the last 2 months. The products include:
Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum, Bio Lifting Serum+, Bio Lifting Mask, Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence, and Anti-Pollution Mattifying Cream.
Before I share more about the products I have been using lately, just to note that ‘Chantecaille Aromacologie products are free of animal components, phthalates, sulphate detergents, mineral oil, petrolatum, palm oil, synthetic colour, synthetic fragrance and GMOs. No animal testing. No parabens.’
Bio Lifting Serum+ is an innovative serum that is infused with powerful botanicals and the peptides that smooth the appearance of horizontal and vertical lines while working to moisturize, immediately lift, visibly firm and protect against blue light pollution. It can be applied twice a day, before the moisturizer. Apply on clean skin, placing two to three drops of Bio Lifting Serum + between fingertips, gently press into the face until product is fully absorbed. Then, follow with moisturizer.
Bio Lifting Mask is a rich mask powered by botanicals that virtually iron out the looks of lines and wrinkles. The anti-wrinkle ingredients in it soften the appearance of expression lines. This formula is also infused with powerful plant extracts that moisturize and soothe dry skin.
The aroma of rose centers and uplifts promoting a sense of well-being. To use, a generous layer is to be applied twice a week over clean skin. Leave on for 10 – 15 minutes and rinse. May also be left on overnight for a fabulously smooth morning complexion.
Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum is a refreshing, hydrating hyaluronic serum gentle enough for all skin types. It is infused with a combination of botanicals that offer immediate, long-lasting hydration and visible plumping power while soothing and shielding the skin from the visible effects of blue light pollution.
It works ideally as a booster under the serum or the moisturizer. It can be applied morning and night on a clean face. I use two pumps of this gel-like serum, starting around the eye area, gently press into the entire face until serum is fully absorbed by the skin.
Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence is a lightweight finishing essence rich in powerful botanicals that create an instant barrier against pollutants. It is infused with novel ingredients that moisturize to soothe, protect and rebalance against urban pollution, smog and heavy metals, reducing the appearance of fine lines and dullness for a pinker and more radiant-looking complexion. It is suggested for use by women and men alike as the last step in the skincare routine. The aroma of rose centers and uplifts, promoting a sense of well-being.
To use, apply twice a day as the last step in the skincare routine. Using the Foundation/Mask Brush or fingertips, lightly sweep one drop onto the face, avoiding the eye area. Allow the essence to fully dry before applying foundation.
Anti-Pollution Mattifying Cream is a lightweight moisturizer that helps to visibly refine skin, shrinking the appearance of pores and blackheads induced by urban and screen light pollution. The powerful blend of antioxidants and the metal-binding complex provides skin with immediate protection against heavy metals and particulate matter while novel botanicals rebalance it from the harmful effects of chemical pollutants for a more radiant, rosy looking complexion. It mattifies and leaves skin flawless for women and men alike. The aroma of rose centers and uplifts, promoting a sense of well-being. It can be used morning and evening as a lightweight moisturizer or as a final step in skincare. It can also be used prior to applying the Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence.
Overall, it is hard for me to choose a favourite, these Chaintecaille products have definitely become a part of my everyday skincare routine. My skin looks and feels nourished, supple, soft, radiant, and comfortable. Beautiful formulas and amazing results – highly recommend you to check these out. Chantecaille Beauty Products are available at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue.*Press samples
Guerlain has launched the Spring 2020 Makeup Collection that is breathtakingly beautiful and definitely giving me the spring vibes. Guerlain has always been one of the houses I look forward to for all their limited edition launches as well as new additions to the permanent range. Spring 2020 limited edition collection is all you and your skin would like in your spring mood.
The Cherry Blossom Spring Collection 2020 includes Guerlain Meteorites Happy Glow – Light Revealing Pearls of Powder, Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick (refills), Rouge G Lipsticks No. 61, 62, Aqua Allegoria Flora Cherrysia, and Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil. I have three products from the collection which I am sharing more about in this article.
Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Case Cherry Blossom is a customizable lipstick case design with cherry blossom. The Rouge G lipsticks have matte-finish shades that have a blend of black seed oil and intense pigments for a satin formula with the perfect balance between hydration and vibrant colour.
The bullet’s ergonomic design allows ultra-precise application for a flawless, lip-enhancing result. The Rouge G Customizable Lipstick Case gives a nice choice to choose the case that suits your style and with this limited-edition Cherry Blossom case, it will definitely be my case to carry with me – either with the shades launched for spring or just to have my favourite Rouge G shade in this customizable case.
Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil in limited edition cherry blossom packaging is available in 50ml. This oil has been a regular in my skincare routine for over 5 years and still my favourite. I have shared many times about this oil on this blog as well as my Instagram. Linking my detailed post here, this oil is a must-try and must-have – never breaks me out, very lightweight, absorbs quickly, keeps my skin look youthful and radiant. I use this oil – few drops at a time – after my serum and before my moisturizer, it layers beautifully with other products in my routine. It also works amazingly when I add a few drops of this oil into my foundation to give a little extra radiance.
Guerlain Cherry Blossom Spring Collection 2020 is definitely something I can highly recommend you guys to check out – whether you are a fan and collection of Guerlain or if you are trying from the brand for the first time.
Charlotte Tilbury’s globally-adored, Iconic Pillow Talk makeup collection that is perfect for a dreamy, romantic makeup look that can be dialled up or dialled down for every mood, every moment and everyone has new additions to it. In the magical world of Pillow Talk, you are sure to fall in love with the iconic nude-pink shade that’s on everyone’s lips, eyes and now faces – means there are new shimmering, eyeshadow palettes, rosy, glow-giving blush hues, pout-perfecting lipsticks, lip liners, lip glosses and more. I am sure you must be super excited to know more about the launches – I am equally excited too. Please note I am sharing the original Pillow Talk products along with the new launches for comparison and description of all shades that now make it a DREAMY Pillow Talk Collection.
I am going to divide this post into three parts – focusing on lips, face, and eyes. Starting with the lips, the new lip products in the Pillow Talk Collection are Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk Medium, K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Pillow Talk Intense Deep, Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Medium and Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Intense, Collagen Lip Bath in Pillow Talk.
Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk Medium is a warm berry pink lipstick shade in a long-lasting, hydrating, pigmented, and moisturizing formula. The lipstick glides on the lips while keeping the lips comfortable during the wear.
K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Pillow Talk Intense Deep is a berry rose shade that gives a luminous, full-bodied pout that captures and reflects light. The formula glides on the lips easily and also conditions the lips.
The Original Pillow Talk Lipstick is the nude pink matte revolution lipstick which is universally-loved, best-selling lipstick launched to give all women what Charlotte Tilbury calls ‘the most beautiful lips of your life’. The moisturizing matte formula nourishing, softening, and light-reflecting.
Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Medium (warm berry-pink) and Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Intense (deep tawny-brown) is a waterproof lip liner that provides a long wear time (5-6 hours) with no smudging and transfer. I have been a fan of the original Pillow talk shade and still love it. The formula glides on smoothly for a seamless line, to resize and reshape the look of the lips for a fuller-looking pout. The original Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk is nude pink iconic lip liner launched to worldwide acclaim and has become a hero product in the beauty industry, sold 1 every 2 minutes worldwide.
Collagen Lip Bath in Pillow Talk is a nude-pink high-shine, sheer lip gloss. The lips are hydrated, defined, feel and look smooth, supple. The formula has a refreshing flavour and cool feeling on the lips.
Lip Lustre in shade Pillow Talk is a light-reflecting, nude-pink gloss which gives the lips a cushiony, velvet lustre finish. The formula is hydrating and comfortable on the lips, can be used alone or over other lip products.
Coming next to the new face products in the Pillow Talk Collection – Beauty Light Wand in shades Pillow Talk and Pillow Talk Medium, Cheek to Chic in shade Pillow Talk Intense.
Beauty Light Wand in Pillow Talk is a nude pink shade while shade Pillow Talk Medium is Nude peach-pink. If you have used the light wand from the brand before, you might know what I am talking about, it is a beautiful light reflecting product that looks so magically beautiful on the skin. These two new shades look beautiful – perfect additions to the Pillow Talk Dream.
Beauty Light Wand gives a high gloss highlighting effect on the skin which not only enhances luminosity but also provides magical coverage for a translucent, radiant-looking skin. It keeps the skin hydrated and smooth. The texture of the light wand is silky smooth and non-greasy.
Cheek to Chic in Pillow Talk Intense is a deep rosy-pink powder blush. The formula is beautiful, smooth, and finely milled – blends in easily into the skin. This deep rosy-pink powder blush adorns your cheeks with a sweeter hue of Pillow Talk and looks extra dreamy on deeper skin tones. The finish is a luminous complexion – the perfect and gorgeous glow.
Cheek to Chic in the original Pillow Talk shade is a two-toned pink and champagne powder blush which is the best-selling blush from the brand. This universally flattering blush adds an instant healthy sheen to the complexion for a gorgeous glow.
If you are not familiar with this blush and why there are two shades on one blush – that is the secret to a glowing, just-kissed blush de-coded into a two-step “SWISH & GLOW” ritual for a flawless-looking finish every time – means you have to first swish the brush on the outer circle and then dip in the middle – means blush + glow.
Finally moving on to the eyes – the new launches in the Pillow Talk Collection – Pillow Talk Eye Liner, Instant eye Palette in Pillow Talk (limited edition).
Pillow Talk Eye Liner is a smokey berry-brown liner for the eyes. It is very pigmented, blends easily, has a creamy matte texture. It can be used as waterline and eyeliner – it did not give me any irritation for my sensitive eyes and looks beautiful – this shade gives depth to my dark brown eyes.
Instant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk is a dreamy 12-shade palette including champagne & soft pink eyeshadows for 4 Pillow Talk eye glow looks. It is inspired by Charlotte Tilbury’s best-selling, globally-adored nude-pink shade that’s on everyone’s lips, this limited edition eyeshadow palette features four eye glow looks that can be dialled up or down for every occasion, from day to desk to date and beyond. The 12 magical shades from the dreamy world of Pillow Talk in a mix of super-soft, intense matte and metallic pearl finishes. The diamond Powder infuses a jewel-like light and clarity to eyes, creating a luminous, natural-looking glow. The matte shadows contain coated pigments with silicones for a silky, luxurious touch and emollient oils for optimized spreadability while the metallic pearl shades contain coated pigments for a soft, cushiony feel and Emollient Esters for comfortable-to-wear glam.
