PRADA Candy Kiss Eau De Parfum Review

Happy Valentine's Day you all!!
I decided to share this bottle of perfume I got, just in time for today's celebration and also Hershey's Kisses. Come on! Who doesn't crave milk chocolate today? And a flirtatious and feminine scent that reminds me of my early 20s? Bring it on.
Sometimes its legit to be self indulgent, enveloping yourself in a cloud of fragrance, walking like you are a million bucks, without worrying about the possible judgements, only because, someone chose you. Because there is someone who loves you, makes your heart flutter and inspires you to become a better version of yourself, every single day. So what if there is one out of 365 days to celebrate it. Isn't it worth a celebration everyday?

So, this perfume is definitely something I would have never purchased myself. I stay away from sweet scents because they 'feel' immature. However, there is something different about this one.
Lets find out more...

STILA Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel Review and Swatch

If you love the sultry black kajal look but find it too dramatic for everyday, then here is a gorgeous, deep, dark brown shade that promises a softer, doe eyed look! It is my favorite eye liner for almost 2 years and counting and I love this shade on my big, black eyes. 
Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in the shade called Damsel really does make eyes look romantic, innocent - much like a damsel.

CHANEL ROUGE COCO Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in 434 MADEMOISELLE Review and Swatch

This Spring nude lip colors are on trend and I find that a refreshing change from the darker/bolder colors from Fall/Winter and there are so many beautiful nude colors to choose from. I am truly, deeply madly all about this shade from Chanel. Mademoiselle has been my go to shade and it always work for me!  
This gorgeous shade is from the iconic Rouge Coco line from Chanel. I don't even recall how many times I have repurchased this. Honestly, I own no other shade from the Rouge Coco line because I am always so hooked on to this one. Many of you might say, the shade is 'dupable' and I would like to agree, however, there is nothing I can find that matches this one. It looks amazing on my skintone. Its 'the one' nude shade I can't live without, even when it comes with a $45 price tag. Too expensive for a lipstick but the texture, the formula, the shade and everything else is so perfect; I do not even want to look for a dupe!

WINTER SKINCARE FAVORITES - ft. L'Occitane, Nivea, Origins, Caudalie, Josie Maran and YSL

Its always so hard to pick my favorite skincare products and as you already know, my skin has been ultra sensitive and generally not doing great for quite a long time. However, there are some products that have helped me significantly and deserve to be showcased in a favorites post.
So, today I will share with you, skincare products that are suitable for all skin types and especially for sensitive skin. Writing this post has been difficult because there are no facial oils! I am literally restraining myself because I wanted this to be a guide for anyone who wants to take good care of their skin and would like to include some of these products in their everyday routine without worrying about side effects. I am extremely satisfied with each of these products so without further ado, lets move on to the details.

L'Occitane Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm and Shea Foaming Cleanser Review

I came back from my month long vacation couple of weeks ago and these new L'Occitane products from the Shea Butter Collection were the first few products that I began using as soon as I arrived in Calgary. The weather here is so dry and it really takes its toll on my already dry skin. I can do everything to protect my face and feet but my hands are a disaster. May be because I wash them too much throughout the day and I do not follow up with a hand creme, even though I have plenty all around me at all times. 
Let me explain you what happens to my hands. The skin on my knuckles and around my nails and cuticles gets so dry that it starts to tear! Yes! It tears open and it gets worse as I do my everyday work. The tear get bigger if I try to grip on to anything, e.g. holding my child's hand :P and then there is blood. The irony is that I cant even put a bandaid on my knuckles! As it heals it leaves bruises and those dark patches on my knuckles forces me to wear gloves all winter long. But I need to meet people. Its so embarrassing; I couldn't even explain it to my manicurist the last time. 
I tell my friends I suffered from eczema in my childhood and this is one way it tortures me every winter. However, truth be told, I can't find anything that works fast and is easy to use!
The Intensive Hand Balm from L'Occitane has been a savior. I can't thank L'Occitane enough for creating a product that solves a serious issue. 
Ever since I started using this every night and morning, my hands are smoother, my skin is softer and there are no more cuts and tears! This product literally changed my life.

Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Oil in Cherry My Cherie Review and Swatch

This is my favorite lip product these days. I loved it during the summer months for a natural looking tint on my lips and I love it even more for the winter months. You can already guess that its a tinted lip oil and what could be so special about it? Its formulated with four essential oils for deep hydration: apricot kernel oil, coriander fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, and possiflora edulis seed oil. It makes my lips feel so smooth and look so moisturized. I love the look of youthful and nourished lips and this products helps me achieve that and a little rosy tint too.
The shade I am reviewing is actually my favorite shade form this line. There are 10 shades available in this line but no. 5 Cherry My Cherie is my favorite because its the most pigmented one and is great for anyone with pigmented lips. There is a very fine shimmer in almost all that I saw, but it a very subtle shimmer, just enough for a glossy appearance.
So let's get started with pics followed by a swatch and my review.
