PHYSICIANS FORMULA The Healthy Foundation MN4 and Spotlight Illuminating Primer Review and Swatch

Every time I use something from Physicians Formula, I wonder why I never tried it before. It is amazing to discover products that perform so well, they rival the most expensive beauty products I have ever used. I love a good foundation and that is usually where I feel the need to splurge the most, until its not! 
The Healthy Foundation with SPF 20 from Physicians Formula is a fantastic addition to my routine and even though this foundation stays perfectly without a primer, the new Spotlight Illuminating Primer adds just enough luminosity to skin to appear dewy and fresh.
As I get older and the contours of my face deepen a little more, I have actually started to appreciate highlighting products in a new light. I never thought I would be so concerned about how my eye area appears but as time goes by, I realize that these products takes years off my face just by bringing in more light or should I say Spotlight!

Winter Skincare Favorites ft. Belif, Marcelle, Burt's Bees, La Roche-Posay & The Body Shop

Bonjour mes amis!
Today I am sharing some of my favorite skincare products that are keeping my skin look its best in this frigid cold weather. I actually had to gather all my motivation to write this post down, as I sip my coffee and cozy up in my snuggly sweater. There is something about winter that slows me down significantly. I need to workout too, but hey those knits cover everything right?!
Anyways, so my skincare routine stays as simple as it can get and I like using products that are easily available and so affordable, that anyone can incorporate them in their skincare routine.
More on how to keep skin looking hydrated and plump this holiday season, in today's blog!

LOUIS VUITTON Attrape-Rêves Fragrance Review and Photos

On my birthday, my husband took me to the newly opened Louis Vuitton Store in Calgary's Chinook Centre to pick myself a birthday present. I was ecstatic because, that never happens! My husband would usually pick something for me himself, and in the past there have been instances when I have returned the gift and gotten something else that I really wanted. For a moment I thought, he might not have liked me exchanging the gifts later on, but truth is, I want my gifts to have more value than only sit somewhere in the closet. I want to use them, enjoy them and as soon as I entered the gorgeous LV store, I forgot about all this! I just wanted to try on everything. 
Initially I wanted the Me & Me necklace in my initial 'R' but as soon as I caught a whiff of the fragrances, I quickly turned around and discovered the stunning array of perfumes or shall I say 'les parfum' in my not-so-french accent.
So today, I am sharing a new fragrance that I fell in love with. I actually like four of them and I finally decided to purchase Attrape-Rêves which translates to 'dream catcher'! So me, so lovely, so I got it! More on this, on todays blog.

YSL Couture Blush in Rouge Saint Germain Review and Swatches

This is the prettiest blush I had seen in a long time and I wanted it to be my blush for this season. I picked up the shade Rouge Saint Germain, as the red tones were perfect for the fall and holiday season. It has gorgeous packaging and I love the new envelope design that the couture blushes come in. There are ten beautiful shades to choose from which come in satin and shimmer finishes. From the swatches on Sephora and YSL Beauté, this blush, in the shade Rouge Saint Germain is a bright pink red.
Unless, it really is not.

PHYSICIANS FORMULA Rosé All Day, Charcoal Detox and Refreshmint Review and Swatches

Today I am sharing some skincare products from Physicians Formula available at London Drugs. All of these products are vegan, cruelty free and free from harmful ingredients. My skin can be easily irritated by some ingredients commonly used in cosmetics, so I am extremely careful with what I apply on my skin and Physicians Formula products never disappoint! They work great for my skin type and never cause any sensitivities. All three of these come in beautiful and functional packaging and are very easy to incorporate in an existing skincare regimen. 
Charcoal Detox was a completely new experience for me as I hadn't use a charcoal stick before for cleansing and the Refreshmint eye de-puffer is so minty and delicious but my favorite is the Rosé All Day serum because its a versatile product that smells amazing!! It's really like smelling a bouquet of roses all day! 
I love these products and for a full review, how I use them and swatches, keep on reading!

PHYSICIANS FORMULA Butter Bronzer, Butter Blush and Butter Highlighter Review and Swatches

This is my first time using anything from Physicians Formula and I am pleasantly surprised by how gorgeous the product range is. I decided to share with you the new Butter Bronzer, Blush and Highlighter today as they were the very first products I tried from Physicians Formula, available at London Drugs. These deliciously fragrant powders, in brightly colored packaging, look amazing on skin and the best part is that they all work really well for my normal/dry skin and do not cling to any dry spots, may be because they are infused with Murumuru butter!

Hair Food Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner Review

So my entire family took turns to get sick this season. We usually don't get a cold/flu until December but hey, winter came in early for Calgary and I have a lot to complain! We didn't even get a flu shot, my trees were still green and I hadn't even emptied my annual planters! There was literally no autumn like activity in my yard! The trees on the median and road side had a wonderful golden display that could last just a day before 20 inches of snow got dumped all over the city. No matter how much I complain, this weather will constantly drive me crazy and wreak havoc on my skin and hair. My lips are dried, chapped, flaky and cracked and no amount of lip balm helps and I am actually desperately looking for something that is actually nourishing in accordance to the crazy Calgary weather. Is it just me or do vacations make you long for summer days more? Its like the more you see the sun/beaches/greenery/life , the more you despise your current situation.  
Anyways, so at least for dry hair, I have something you might like to read more on. Its the Hair Food Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, available at London Drugs, that is giving my hair some life this season. It adds volume without the frizz and it makes my hair look smoother and shinier. This is my everyday shampoo/conditioner duo and I can't wait to share this with you today.

I decided to share my full thoughts on this collection with you all today, so keep reading...
