DIOR Diorskin Nude BB Creme in Medium 003 Review and Swatch

Last week I was getting ready for a Calgary Stampede Breakfast and used the new DiorSkin Nude BB Cream and literally, I had to wash my face and start again! Don't get me wrong, this product is amazing and I love the texture and finish but the rosy tone was way more than I expected; especially under the morning sun it looked completely off!
This is a new launch from Dior as part of the DiorSkin Nude line. I noticed it on Sephora's website and ordered it straight away because I love using BB creams during summers. I just feel they are airier and easier to use than a traditional primer+foundation combo. I am so disappointed that this did not work for me because of the unnatural orange tone it offers. That is the "unique rosy glow" for the medium shade of this BB cream. Stills is a pretty good product that deserves some attention and may be you can test it out at Sephora for yourself. It comes in 3 shades: Light, Fair and Medium.

L'OCCITANE Peony Perfecting Toner Review

The new L'Occitane Peony Perfecting Toner is designed to smooth, soften and tone skin's texture to reveal a radiant and "perfect-looking" complexion. I am always on a hunt for products that even out complexion and work on my dull skin. I am so happy that I don't have acne any more and even when my skin was super sensitive, this did not cause any irritation. I love how gentle and effective this formulation is. Its an alcohol free toner with peony extract that does the magic. I have been testing this out for a month and here are my thoughts!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer in Yellow - Review and Swatch

The ultimate primer and the only one I have been using for years. I shared it almost 2 years ago when it came in the pump bottle. This is a newer packaging with more color correcting shades to choose from. The tube packaging is meh for me but the product is quite awesome. I love this primer so be prepared to only read great things.

VICHY NORMADERM - 3 Step Skincare Routine for Acne Prone Skin Review

I have been dealing with acne for quite some time now and I can only wonder why I did not think about using a complete anti-acne regimen. Having so many amazing skincare products that help with complexion, skin's texture and radiance; I always thought my acne would automatically vanish and my skin would be as good as before. This was also because my acne is never consistent  until recently when things got a little out of control. That's when VICHY Normaderm came to rescue. 
I am so happy to have found this solution to adult acne. VICHY Normaderm definitely lives up to expectations. For full details and review keep reading.

Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation in Warm Natural 4.5 Review and Swatch

I have started to catch up with my regular life, now that I am home after a wonderful vacation to Palm springs, CA. It was amazing to be in a different climate, hearing different languages and tasting food I have never had before. The sun was so harsh but it felt great to get a tan after those winter months.
Sadly, my skin broke out and I was not carrying my anti acne treatment because I 'thought' I am done with it. Will share more on acne in my next post. 
Today, I am sharing this powder foundation from Bobbi Brown, and was the only foundation I flew with! Yes, I did use a concealer and a primer, but this foundation was pretty darn good! I got the coverage I wanted and could easily touch up, thanks to the huge mirror in this compact. It was the only makeup product, I pulled out of the z-palette to carry in my handbag, because its so thin that it could fit in the inner pocket without feeling bulky.

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.
