The eyeshadow formula is very easy to work with, is very smooth, and pigmented. It blends easily, even the matte shades. The shades are buildable to high intensity. I really like how all the shades give a vibe of frosty winter days. There is cool grey-blue shade and on the other hand, there is a pop of bright color, overall a beautiful curation. The shades are very rich, both in the palette as well as on the eyes.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Frost Lip Creme is a rich, creamy lipstick a metallic frost finish. The color-rich, indulgently shimmering lipstick is housed in a sleek leopard-print case. Le Marc Lip Frost Lipstick delivers metallic shine which is not glittery. The color payoff is really nice and is long lasting, lasts for over 4 hours which I have tested. The formula is lightweight, does not dry the lips but is moisturizing despite the long-lasting color. It has a subtle vanilla taste and scent mimic a decadent dessert.
The lipstick is the perfect balance of pigment and translucency to give a subtle dose of frosting this winter. It is comfortable to wear.
It comes in five shades, all with metallic finish:
Sugar Sugar 500 – Pinky Nude Frost
Diva 502 – Pale Pink Frost
Just Peachy 504 – Peachy Copper Frost

La Prairie products are one of the most treasured and luxurious products in my skincare routine, like when I want the best, not just the treatment on my skin but also to feel the best and you feel the best when things work for you. It is not just the formula, the packaging, or the luxurious textures but there is also decades of research by scientists which thrive to create something but the best. The newest product from the brand and in the Platinum Rare Collection is the La Prairie Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion.
The first thing that got my attention when I was reading through the details about this new launch was detoxification. For my combination skin which is prone to hormonal congestion, I am very much drawn towards the products that say – detoxification, antioxidants, refined texture, brightening, and last but not the least hydration. And it makes me even more excited to share with you that this essence-lotion aims in providing all my skin needs. But does it works? Well, let me come to my verdict after using La Prairie Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion for almost a month.
The deep amethyst tones of the bottle reflects sophistication, harmony and attention to detail, every surface and cap catches light and reflects it in a way that it looks like a beautifully cut gem. ‘La Prairie Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion is infused with the eternity of platinum.’ The lotion has a delicate scent which is very uplifting and relaxing, it is actually the same as the rest of the products in the Platinum Rare Collection. The iridescent amethyst lotion has a liquid consistency which feels very silky on the skin. The glides nicely onto the skin and then absorbs giving the skin a beautiful veil of glow as you see after applying. But form within, the lotion helps in the natural detoxification process of the skin with a 3-level approach: Protect, Restore, and Energize. It protects the skin with the antioxidants in its formulation, the skin texture looks refined, smooth, and comfortable. I am so glad it is working for my combination skin, I have noticed my skin is brighter and the problem areas look blurred, no breakouts. The skin looks radiant and fresh.
To use, apply AM and PM after cleansing and toning. Dispense a small amount into the palm of the hand. Gently press hands together, diffusing the essence-in-lotion over both palms before gently patting onto the face. Massage into forehead, cheeks, chin and décolleté, allowing it to absorb completely and avoiding eye area. Follow with the serum and moisturizer for day and night.
‘Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion is a complete essence-in-lotion, helping to boost skin renewal from within by supporting three key detoxification processes. First, it enhances the skin’s ability to break down the damaged proteins that impede its function. Second, it improves the skin’s energy production system. Finally, it helps the skin to fight external stress factors.’
Overall, I am in love with this lotion and can totally see and feel how this single product makes a difference in how my skin looks and feels. I believe it is so worth the price and if you believe in taking good care of your skin, not just for today but also for the future, to have good quality skin. La Prairie Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion is available at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue.*Press sample
Laura Mercier does not need an introduction when it comes to makeup and makeup products, the brand has been loved and trusted for decades. I have three products from the brand which have been on rotation since last few weeks and glad to share with you – Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm, and Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is a multi-tasking product which is lightweight, an essential for everyday use and for a no-makeup look. It has a sheer hint of color and the finish is natural dewy, no doubt why it is an award winner. The moisturizing formula provides a beautiful glow to the skin and is perfect for all skin types, it does not emphasize any dry areas or make my oily areas oilier. Skin looks like skin but a beautiful radiant version of it, more even toned. It can replace foundation if you are looking for a very lightweight sheer hint of color.
The tinted moisturizer stays on well for over 8 hours. The main ingredient for hydration – ‘Sodium hyaluronate hydrates and softens fine lines, dry lines. Broad Spectrum SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen plus a power-blend of antioxidant vitamins C and E help protect skin from the damaging effects of the environment.’ I have shade medium and works well for me. It applies well with fingers, sponge, and even with a makeup brush. Definitely a keeper!
Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm is a 3-in-1 lip color which provides medium to full coverage, balm level comfort, and high shine lip gloss finish. The formula is very smooth and creamy, comfortable to wear, glides on beautifully, keep the lips moisturized plus with color and shine. The lips look and feel supple and natural. The staying power is nice too. I have swatched shade Amaretto Swirl which is a Pink Beige and suitable to most of the skin tones, it is a beautiful nude shade on my lips.
Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara – is a nice mascara, but I do feel it clumps after few hours of application. It gives a nice volume to the lashes. I do like the comb applicator which has a large, firm brush that coats the lashes well with just one swipe. I have this mascara in shade black.
