BURBERRY Kisses Hydrating Lip Color in PINK PEONY No 37 Review and Swatch

This past week had been so hectic for me and the icy road situation added to the stress. Even on Black Friday, I was volunteering at a community school, so that's how the week ended. Winter driving is really taking its toll on me and thankfully the weather is much nicer in the next week. *fingers crossed* 
On stressful days with no time to even think about makeup, I still go for a minimalistic make up look, (;o)) which basically means a sun screen, powder foundation, powder blush and a pink lipstick.  I just feel powder products are much easier to throw on my face then creme products, that require blending and making sure everything is even. I have quite a bunch of pink lipsticks but my favorite shade these days is this Burberry Kisses lipstick in Pink Peony. I'll be honest that my first impressions were not great about this one but the color is so perfect for every occasion, that I couldn't stop wearing it. 
Without further ado, lets move on the pics, followed by the swatches and then my experience with this lipstick.

There is something magical about holiday products and I love collecting them. So, I had my eyes on Burberry beauty ever since I saw them on and also on and two weeks ago, The Bay had 10% off on beauty and that included Burberry as well!!

SCARLET & JULIA Review - Burberry Splash Eye Palette and Stila Smudge Stick in Damsel

I came across Scarlet & Julia recently and got a chance to purchase a few of their products. They offer a unique range of beauty products at incredible prices. My favorite section is the Beauty Outlet because they have such amazing brands at really low prices. Beauty Outlet is a member only section, and signing up is pretty easy.  I also earned points for signing up and for my purchase. I even received a discount coupon for my next online purchase. Quite amazing, right? You must check out this section and you will be amazed at the prices they offer.

BIODERMA Cicabio Soothing Repairing Cream Review

I know rashes and minor cuts on skin due to dryness, like no other person and the one product, I can totally rely on is the Cicabio. Even though it is a creme, it forms a thin layer on the top of the skin, (or a rash or  perhaps a minor skin damage), and protects and restores the epidermis. 
This fragrance free, soothing and repairing cream has antibacterial agents, (copper-zinc) that purify the epidermis and relieves the feeling of discomfort or the need to scratch it. It also contains hyaluronic acid that does wonders to the skin. 
I used the Cicabio this morning on a razor rash, on the cuticles of my nails, on the dry and damaged skin on my knuckles and I also use it after threading my eyebrows. I seriously feel that it heals the skin much faster. Its actually quite amazing and to be honest, I have had used a prescription to heal my skin for rashes and burns; it was a silver-zinc based formula. I am so happy that I can replace that with this relatively inexpensive creme that is paraben-free and can safely be used on babies, children and adults.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation Y345- REVIEW and SWATCH

My definition of "favorite foundation" -  one that offers a medium build-able coverage and not cause a skin reaction! Honestly I am pretty amazed by the quality of foundations I come across regularly. Make Up For Ever is one of those brands, I look up to for innovative and exciting formulations and this new foundation is no exception.
I can only rave about it because I love the formulation, the feel of it, how it blends on skin and also the fact that this is a perfect shade for me and it does not cause any skin reactions on my sensitive-dry skin.

Jouviance Restructive SRD Collagen Boost Review and Photos

I know what you are thinking. A wrinkle filler for me?! I am definitely not in the age group this product is designed for, however, I find this to be extremely beneficial for quenching my dry and thirsty skin type.
Jouviance Restructiv SRD is a serum concentrate that promises to give the same skin plumping effect as a hyaluronic acid injection and the results can be felt in just 2 weeks.
For me, I felt my skin felt and looked much hydrated after one day! And it did not cause any other reactions, like clogged pores, redness or the dreadful acne. That is the reason why I tried to get over my busy life and re-enter the world of blogging with a killer product. (Yea, I did not blog for 3 months, u get it, dont you?)
