blinc Box Discovery Collection ft. Mascara Amplified, Eyebrow Mousse, Eyeshadow Primer and Eyeliner Pencil

I have been trying out the blinc Box for the past couple of weeks and I couldn't wait to share it with you. It features four water proof, smudge proof and life proof products! They are for real. I tested them out with the spray bottle and also in the shower and the pool. The results were quite spectacular. However, I do have my favorites and not so favorite products in this box. So without further ado, let's move on to the pictures and my review.

CHANEL Rouge Coco Stylo in 214 Message - Review and Swatches

My mind is literally everywhere as I write this blog. I have to finish up a couple of assignments, get back to working out and stop over thinking about my recent bout of acne. I am so upset, I can't even explain.  Just when my skin was looking good and my life seemed perfect, I got acne on both cheeks - exactly where my blush goes! Suspecting my blush to be the culprit, I sanitized it and the contour powder using rubbing alcohol (took advice from CBB member) and washed my brushes. Now I am going makeup free till all my acne clears out. 

So just to cheer myself up I applied this super hydrating  and lightweight lipstick from Chanel. It's a new lip product launched this month and the shade I am talking about is a bright red-pink color called Message 214. 
This shade is the brightest and most opaque shade from the line and even though I love this formula, there is no other shade I felt I could wear on my pigmented lips. There is a bright red-orange called Histoire 206, which could've be my second pick, but it seemed too bright for everyday use, so I passed.

VICHY Ideal Body AQUA SORBET Review

I have been so busy shopping for and planning my visit to Palm Springs next month. As you know, I live in Calgary and the weather allows me to wear my knits till late March (may be next month too, who knows..) and it's quite awkward to be looking for summer clothes at this time of the year, especially something that is 100% cotton! I can not even imagine how hot the desert would be, but I am hoping it's bearable for an Albertan. And because I like to be a bit high maintenance even when I am on a vacation, I like to pack up my favorite beauty products and take them along with me.
This deliciously scented, quick drying body lotion from Vichy is already in a little travel bottle and in my handbag because I love how quickly it dries up on skin and leaves it utterly smooth and supple. It's enriched with hyaluronic acid, which is my favorite ingredient. I wish I could bathe in it. Not only is it fantastic for adding moisture to skin, since it can hold 1000 times its weight in water, it also makes a great anti aging ingredient. I love using this after a bath and I keep it in my handbag to apply on my arms or feet. Sometimes, I look at my arms in the middle of the day, and I could see flakes of skin, so I quickly apply this and it does the job.

LA PRAIRIE Skin Caviar Luxe Cream Sheer Review

It's been exactly 45 days since I started using this ultra luxurious, life changing beauty cream from La Prairie. It's the Skin Caviar Luxe Cream Sheer formulated with caviar extract and an exclusive cellular complex that includes ginseng root extract, horsetail extract and many more age fighting ingredients to lift and firm facial skin. 
My skin looks even toned and definitely a lot fresher and youthful. I was amazed from day 1, because I could feel how it tightens the skin, especially around my cheek area. I am so happy to share this luxurious beauty cream with you because it works in more ways than I initially thought it would. To find out all the difference it made to me, keep reading.

BURBERRY Fresh Glow Compact - Luminous Foundation in OCHRE 20 Review

Today I am sharing this luxurious, beautifully scented powder foundation from Burberry. I am impressed with all the Burberry products I have tried before, so I wanted to try their powder foundation because, powder foundations are always tricky. They can quickly oxidize, may look drying or patchy.  However, Burberry nailed it with the blushes and eyeshadows, so I felt safe to get their powder foundation. I have been using this for a month now and I have mixed feelings about this one. Firstly, it only comes in 6 shades, so you have to be lucky to get a perfect match. The shade I picked is a shade lighter than my complexion, because the shades darker than this one, were rosy or orange toned. Ochre 20 is more like a light golden shade (yellow undertones). For swatches and review and how I use it, keep reading...

Irresistible Me DIAMOND Professional Styling Iron Review

This next generation hair straightener from Irresistible Me features some of the coolest things, I could only dream of! Like, the floating ceramic plates with crushed diamond particles mixed with tourmaline, for maximum shine, protection and longevity of style! I am so impressed by this light weight straightener - there is nothing I don't like about this!
And who doesn't like diamonds? Even if they are crushed and put into your flat iron plates. I have been using this regularly and I love it.
