FOR BELOVED GIRL Mineral Cloud Silk Masks - Skin Renewal and Extreme Moisture - Review

I have loved these cloud silk masks from For Beloved Girl in the past and I am so excited to share this winter beauty staple with you today.  The weather is only getting colder and drier, so I rely on products that flood my skin with hydration, tightens pores and renews it. And that is exactly what For Beloved Girl sheet masks promise. 
These Mineral Cloud Silk Masks are designed to focus on a skin concern such as hydration, ageing, pore cleansing, etc. Today I am sharing with you, Na - Extreme Moisture Mineral Mask, which contains hyaluronic acid that helps keep skin hydrated and plump and the Ca - Skin Renewal Mineral Mask which focuses on pore cleansing and exfoliation for a smoother looking skin. No one wants to see pores on their face right?! And a poreless look is what truly makes skin younger looking. Its always the little things we do regularly that makes a huge impact. Cleansing, exfoliation and a pore tightening mask followed by hydrating hyaluronic acid based treatments are essentials of my skincare regimen.

JOICO K-PAK Clarifying Shampoo, Conditioner and Restorative Styling Oil + InstaTint in Violet Opal, Rose Gold and Amethyst - Review and Swatches

Yesterday on my Instagram feed, I read a quote that said, "Good Hair is the Best Revenge!" with hashtag #MondayMotivation. I laughed at first and then, I thought to myself, good hair day is e-v-e-r-y-thing, so it could be the best thing to flaunt in front of haters everyone.
As much as I love styling my hair, regular heat damage is bothersome, so I make sure I always use the right styling products. The chemical buildup in hair from all the hair sprays, heat protectants, serums, natural oils etc. require a nice hair detox at least two times a week. Joico's K-PAK Clarifying Shampoo is perfect for cleansing hair and I follow with the K-PAK Conditioner and the Restorative Styling Oil before I blowdry.  Once a week I like to apply K-PAK Lustre Lock mask for insanely smooth, shiny hair! I love the K-PAK line from Joico - it works wonders for my long hair and makes me fall in love with my hair, again and again.
More on the K-PAK Clarifying Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Oil and three shades of these super fun InstaTints, on the blog today!

b.liv Hydrate Away Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask Review

B.liv has always impressed me with their sheet masks, especially their Japan Silk Masks, so I was excited to try the new Bio-Cellulose Masks. My skin is quite sensitive these days, as the weather is changing and I have started to notice red spots all over my face. The dryness in Calgary is unreal and being a dry skin person, that means I have to immerse my skin in intensely hydrating products that work at a cellular level and do not clog pores.
b.liv Hydrate Away moisturizing bio-cellulose mask promises 15.6% increase in skin hydration level after 2 hours of single use and skin hydration level retains even after 4 hours. This moisturizing bio- cellulose mask is packed with revitalizing nutrients to hydrate, repair and clarify skin. I used these masks for the past couple of weeks and I feel my skin has improved significantly.

YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain in NU INTERDIT and GRENAT NO RULES - Review and Swatches

This revolutionary matte liquid lip stain from YSL promises tattoo like color that feel light on lips, high color impact and 8 hours of wear time. I was so delighted to get my hands on these because I was craving a non drying matte lipstick. My lips are just as dry (or more) as my skin and I would get anything that makes them look better. My usual picks are cream/satin finish formulas but I love the look of matte lips. There is something alluring about a matte lip - its powerful, mature and exudes a feeling of self satisfaction. Like 'I am not asking for attention with my shiny lips' kind of look. And I have been looking for shades that work for my skin tone and feel great on lips but most of the shades I liked were always out of stock. Even when I was at Sephora, swatching all of these shades in the Tatouage line, I loved the shade called No. 16 - Nude Emblem and it was out of stock of a full month. I had to give up and get something I felt I could use over the holiday season. The best thing about these lip stains is that they are so hydrating and feel so comfortable on lips. They might not be not completely matte and I have to layer for extra pigment because its a lip stain after all not a liquid lipstick. Will be talking more on this with tons of swatches to show.
