NARS NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette Review and Swatches

One of the launches for Spring 2016 that I was super excited about and so in love with, is this new NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette. This is a Sephora exclusive palette and is limited edition. I have been playing around with for almost 2 weeks now. The colors in this palette are beautiful and may be more suitable for fair/lighter skintones. Nonetheless, it seems like a well thought out palette. So, let's move on the the pictures, swatches and then my experience.

FRESH Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream Review and Swatch

At my last facial, the aesthetician told me that those fine lines in my under eye area are expression lines, which means that I laugh a lot. I sure do, but for some time I have been obsessed with the fine lines in my under eye area and was looking for something that would give me the necessary hydration. So, I sampled a lot of eye creams and settled for this one from Fresh. Despite the weird rosy smell, that most Fresh products have, I was sold by the idea of a gel eye cream that gives 30 hours of hydration. How did it treat my under eye area? Let's find out...

MARC JACOBS Velvet Noir Mascara Review and Swatches

That luxurious packaging and a ton of hype motivated me to purchase this mascara from Sephora. I was looking for something dramatic for my lashes because I do not wear falsies. So, words like "major drama" hits me at the right spots and Velvet Noir Mascara's overall branding is so spot on, who is not gonna get one?
Anyways, I really took my time to evaluate this mascara on how it treats my lashes and how long it lasts and I am quite surprised at the results.
Now is the time to share my experience with you all...

L'Occitane Shea Face Soothing Fluid Review

I have been using these two products non-stop for quite some time now and I love the combination. It's part of the Shea Collection from L'Occitane and this Face Soothing Fluid not only has 5% Shea but is also preservative free and provides protection against pollution, skin stress and dryness. I layer this over the Face Comforting Oil at night and sometimes, I mix them together and apply to my face and neck. My skin looks smooth and fresh; its unbelievable what a few simple ingredients can do for skin. 
On a daily basis, I use the Shea Face Soothing Fluid for day time and this lightweight moisturizer does not disappoint. It keeps skin moisturized and protected all day.

L'Occitane Shea Face Comforting Oil Review

This quick absorbing and ultra hydrating beauty oil has quickly become a favorite of mine. I have been using this at night, before my serum on face and my skin feels so smooth and baby soft. I love it especially during this time of the year. It's been a great addition to my skincare regimen.

ThairAPY Salon and Dermalogica Skin Center - Review

I recently had a chance to visit ThairAPY Salon in Calgary for customized facial and skin mapping. I was attended by Erin who is a trained aesthetician and a very friendly person. She not only did my facial but also gave me a lot of information about what products were used on my face and I just knew that I am in good hands. All the products used during the facial were from Dermalogica.
A few of my favorites were the activated charcoal clay mask, the hydrating mist and exfoliation using products with rice enzyme and lactic acid. At the end of the facial, my skin looked so fresh and radiant, I couldn't believe how much of a difference a good facial can make.
