Someone with dry lips, I am always looking for something that gives hydration to my lips as well as also gives color or tint which looks natural and beautiful. Sisley Paris has launched Phyto-Lip Delight Collection which has a light, sensorial texture that subtly enhances the beauty of the lips with a sheer, luminous color. The formula is gel-like which melts into an oil upon contact with lips and provides a shiny, reparative and delicately tinted sheen. Phyto Lip Delight is a beautifying balm that provides all lips, even the most sensitive one – with softness and hydration upon use.

The packaging of the Phyto Lip Delight is so beautiful and luxurious. The applicator is one of the best I  have used, the applicator tip dispenses the perfect amount of balm to infuse the lips with the silky, oily texture that massages during application. It can be worn alone for a naturally luminous smile or can be layered on the top of lipstick to add shine and comfort while reinforcing the color.

I have been using the Phyto-Lip Delight regularly since last few weeks and it is one of the most amazing lip formulas I have tried, the texture is gel-like balmy and it literally melts once applied to the lips. It does not look overly shiny or oily but is perfect to give a luminous look which looks very beautiful. My lips which are dry and do peel time to time when I am not caring for them enough, I am seriously in love with these new launches. They are perfect for applying anytime and I do carry one in my handbag, they give a subtle luminosity and a slight hint which is what I prefer on most of the days at work and even it is perfect as an overnight lip treatment.  My lips are soft, feel nourished, and appear plump since I am using these. Even after the product has worn off, my lips do feel hydrated. It stays on well even when I apply it as a topper on another lip product, stays on well and keeps the lipstick stay longer and look shiny. It is hard to choose a favorite, I have been using the #3 cool as a topper on my lipsticks and #1 and #2 give a beautiful subtle hint of color on the lips and even over a lipstick to give shine and radiant color.

Another favorite from Sisley Paris these days is the new Hydra Global Serum which I have been loving since last two months, my skin is dehydrated time to time, I have linked it here for your reference.

The Sisley Phyto-Lip Delight Collection is available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom.

The newest launch from Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris is all about freshness called the Aqua Celestia Forte. I do love the Aqua Celestia which was launched last year and is in the rotation too. In 2011, when he dreamed up the forte version of Aqua Universalis – an iconic fragrance in his eponymous house – Francis Kurkdjian added a new word to the language of perfumery. He also conferred unprecedented intensity to the eau de Cologne’s spirit: a fresh, modern sillage, bursting with radiance and ensuring long-lasting hold. After Aqua Universalis and Aqua Vitae, Aqua Celestia, Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s third ultra-fresh eau de toilette created in 2017, is
now being unveiled as an eau de parfum.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Aqua Celestia Forte

Aqua Celestia forte, a fragrance which is heavenly fresh. Gazing at the horizon in an ambiance of absolute serenity, you notice a dazzling space between the blue of the sky and the blue of the sea. It widens to allow a sparkling sun to burst forth, featuring accents of petitgrain and jasmine. In the top notes, petitgrain bigarade from Italy, at once sweet and bitter, adds a sparkle to the fruity, sunny facets of Aqua Celestia brought by lime from Mexico and Mitcham mint. Middle notes of blackcurrant bud absolute from Burgundy and mimosa absolute from Provence are enhanced by a delicate touch of jasmine absolute from Egypt. In the base notes, a musky accord crowns and envelopes this fragrant tableau. Aqua Celestia forte embodies the radiance of a fresh, citrusy fragrance.

Olfactive family: musky, floral, citrus

To lend a deeper visual meaning to his creation, Francis Kurkdjian sought a special decor for the box and the bottle label. In a serene setting where body and mind are one, a sun is visible amid silver reflections.

For me, this is an absolutely beautiful scent, something that is going to be my go-to and is already a favorite for summer. To me, the mint note in the opening is very prominent, means it exudes a refreshing and cooler feel right away. The mint citrusy mix in such a delightful way. Another thing I have noticed is that on my skin, it seems to last longer before transitioning to the next note which is floral. The floral is beautiful too in a different way, not a common floral but a slight twist which is still keeping me thinking what exactly On my skin, it lasted for over a day, I mean I could smell this even in the morning on my wrists when sniffed closely. This is a perfect scent for any time of the day. I am really into good floral musks and what could be better than a hint of citrus for the summer.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Aqua Celestia Forte is available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.

I am so much in love with the By Terry Hippy Chic Summer Collection 2018 which I reviewed here, I have been loving to get ready in the morning just to play and use the beautiful products. There are more exciting new launches from the brand, which are perfect for anyone who needs sun protection (and yes we all need that I know) and beautiful long lashes ( off course me too). I am talking about the new By Terry UV Base Invisible Sunscreen Primer Broad Spectrum SPF50 and By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush.

With so many products for skincare and makeup, this is a really nice fusion of skincare and makeup properties into one. It provides sun protection and that too a high level of broad-spectrum, plus it helps give a smooth base for makeup application. It can be used as just the last step if you are not going to apply makeup and if not, it has become my perfect base these days. I am totally in love with the texture, does not feel like sunscreen, it is gel-like and does not give the oily feeling after application. There is a little radiance which is an add-on, makes the skin look healthy and radiant. I did not experience any breakouts while using this base. The makeup did not roll off and stays on pretty well for the full day, I mean lasts longer than usual.

Position-1 (non-twisted) for length

The innovative formula of the mascara is designed to enhance and nurture the lashes. There are nourishing vegetable oils of olive, avocado, and jojoba, sculpting wax of rice, carnauba, candelilla, and restructuring hydrolyzed keratin make it a deeply conditioning formula, which ensures a perfect makeup effect and healthy-looking lashes. The waterproof polymers adhere to lashes with each customized brushstroke, building bespoke volume and length.

Position-2 (twisted) for volume

I have been really impressed by the innovative design of this mascara, a twist makes the same product do something else, it is a double duty mascara of course. Length and volume are the main keys of this and I have been using this for few days and been trying both the features as well as each feature separately. The effect and finish from both are really great, and I agree with the claims. My lashes look healthy, naturally voluminous and long. The mascara is easily buildable for a more intense or dramatic effect. The mascara does not smudge, flake, or dry out. Even at the end of the day, it looks great and moreover, is really easy to remove with the right eye makeup remover.

I am really impressed and been using these on heavy rotations. Follow me on my Instagram to see the before and after pictures, along with my looks. By Terry UV Base Invisible Sunscreen Primer Broad Spectrum SPF50 and By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush are available at Nordstrom, Barney NY, Beautylish, Spacenk, Cult Beauty, NetaPorter.
