Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in 12 Sensual Rose Review and Swatch

I have immense respect for 'truly' moisturizing lipsticks, and, as I was slightly underwhelmed by the formula of Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick, I decided to go for the satin formula this time. The shade that I picked, is a gorgeous rosy berry shade that looks perfect for my warm, yellow skin tone. I am also quite amazed at how this shade can be worn at any time of the day  - thanks to the sheer/buildable coverage. Ever since I got it I am using it non stop and without further ado, lets jump on to the pics and swatches and my thoughts!

Nourish Rejuvenating Peptide Serum Review

I have never been more excited about a facial serum until I tried this one. I had shared Caudalie's Beauty Elixir as my favorite serum/toner, but ever since I started using this, I only use the Beauty Elixir as a toner!
I absolutely love vegan, ethical beauty products and Nourish skincare products, are definitely one of my favorites. They never cause any allergic reactions and do exactly what they claim. 
The Rejuvenating Peptide Serum is a brightening serum that contains light responsive bio-actives to enhance skin's natural luminosity.

Guerlain Meteorites Perles in shade 3 Medium Review

I absolutely love Guerlain Meteorites, just like everyone else. I have been using it for soo long but I never reviewed it, so I decided to do that today. Described as light revealing pearls of powder and categorized as a face powder: I use it primarily as a finishing powder.
This was, quite literally, the first finishing powder I came across, even before Hourglass Ambient Powders became popular and I feel, they truly are a finishing powder, because they do what they are meant to do. Its not a highlighting powder, it really just blurs imperfections and creates an illuminating effect - u know something like, what we use Instagram filters for! :D Its actually quite remarkable.
