HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello beauties, I wish you all a
"HAPPY NEW YEAR"!



I have almost recovered from the flu and have to give all my energy at work again (I'm part-time working as a waitress at my boyfriend's Chinese restaurant - ok, actually it belongs to his parents).

New Year's Eve always means an intense rush to us at our restaurant... so I'm already mentally prepared, and hopefully I can also (even if I can't, I MUST) bear it physically, hehe...
Luckily I'm already used to this, since I grew up with my parents' restaurant.

Hope you spend a much more comfortable and exciting New Year's Eve than me... I know, you definitely will! ;)

SISLEY Body Scrub - Energizing Foaming Exfoliant

| r e v i e w |

Hi guys! I know, it's been quite a while since my last entry, but I really had a lot to do these days... so today I'm back again!

I'm going to give you a review of Sisley's body scrub Energizing Foaming Exfoliant.

Well, before I start to tell you anything about it, I should let you know that this one is really at a dear price, but I think this scrub belongs to one of those products, I hardly can do without.


So what is it, that makes just this scrub such awesome, so that I immediately felt into love with it? Well, I don't know, but all I can say is that I love its texture (the grains are not harsh at all), its fresh scent and the fact that it leaves my skin so smooth, soft and glowing. And the best is, it doesn't dry out my skin, unlike many other scrubs, I've tried before.

But now, I'm really curious about the body scrub you use. Can't wait to receive your recommendations!

R E V I E W : KANEBO Refreshing Body Wash

Today I'm going to introduce Kanebo's Refreshing Body Wash - which I highly adore - to you. First of all, I should let you know that this body wash, unfortunately, is not a bargain at all, but a luxury, you should allow yourself once in a while.

So, now you certainly want to know what makes this body wash so desirable, don't you?

It's all about its incomparable silky and delicate texture, which lathers pretty well, and the luscious, airy scent of green tea. This body wash cleanses that gently, so that it leaves your skin smooth, comfortable and fresh-smelling.

Once you have tried this, you hardly want to swap for convenient drugstore body washes again for sure!


KANEBO'S PRODUCT INFORMATION
Foaming moisturising wash that thoroughly cleanses the skin without leaving it dry or taut. Refreshingly scented with green tea accents.
Smooth all over with washcloth or sponge. Rinse well.

R E V I E W : DIOR DiorSkin Forever Compact

I have been in love with Dior makeup for a long time. Not only do I appreciate Dior's lovely and sophisticated way of packaging of every single product, but also the high-quality most Dior products feature.

DiorSkin Forever Compact Flawless & Moist Extreme Wear Makeup SPF 25 is one of those products, that combine lovely design with high quality, and is simply one of the best powder foundations I have come across until now.

DiorSkin Forever Compact has a very finely milled powdery texture, which is so smooth and lightweight that it just melts into skin. It doesn't block my pores, nor does it accentuate any dry flakes. All you will get is an even and radiant complexion.

The staying power is good, as I only need to reapply a little bit on my oilier t-zone during the course of the day. The only thing I would find fault with, is that the range of colors is rather limited, so that it might be difficult for some to find the perfect color match. I believe that the color 021 Lin / Linen would match my fair Asian skin best, but unfortunately this color isn't available in Europe.

If you are also a fan of compact powder foundations like I am, you should give this a try!


DIOR'S PRODUCT INFORMATION
Total fusion, extreme smoothing, wear and comfort.

Inspired by nano-technologies, Diorskin forever takes smoothing, comfort and wear to teh extreme for stay-true beauty, even in the most unfriendly environments. A Dior innovation, its unique formula includes:
  • Nano-Stretch Network, an invisible, micro-airy nano-network for a perfect complecxion
  • Hydra-Gel System, a new-generation moisturization regulator for optimal comfort hour after hour
Ultra-smooth, the complexion keeps its radiance, even in the most extreme conditions. A two-level case, modern and ready-to-go where the foundation is separated from the sponge for more comfort and user-friendliness.
No transfer. Waterproof.
Size: 0.33 oz

DiorSkin Forever Compact is available in 10 shades:

  • 010 Ivoire / Ivory
  • 020 Beige Clair / Light Beige
  • 021 Lin / Linen
  • 022 Camée / Cameo
  • 023 Pêche / Peach
  • 030 Beige Moyen / Medium Beige
  • 032 Beige Rosé / Rosy Beige
  • 033 Beige Abricot / Apricot Beige

R E V I E W : SISLEY Phyto Teint Eclat

When it comes to foundation, I'm usually very picky...

SISLEY Phyto Teint Eclat is one of the few fluid foundations that convinced me.

This
foundation provides you with a smooth and radiant complexion, with high comfort, because it feels so lightweight and with great lasting power.

I have very fair asian skin with some redness on the cheeks and the colour (Porcelain 0) was the perfect match!
Most other fair colour shades of other brands make me look pink, but this one evened out my skin tone perfectly.

Many fluid foundations also feel heavy or sticky! This one feels so lightweight as if you don't have makeup on. It provides good coverage, yet it still looks very natural.

I also found out that you'll achieve the best results when applying it with your fingers.

Although this foundation is formulated oil-free, it doesn't dry out skin, due to the botanical extracts as active ingredients.

What I don't like that much about this product is the pump (it's so hard to get the right amount out of it) and the design of the bottle. Even it's very pricey, I will repurchase it, because of the high quality and one bottle will go long way.


SISLEY'S PRODUCT INFORMATION
A fluid emulsion with an ultra-lightweight texture for a long-lasting, perfectly luminous and even complexion.

Phyto-Teint Eclat’s lightweight texture makes it easy to apply, creating a smooth, luminous finish.
Apply every morning to grace the skin with a silky-soft, powdery veil.
Natural plant extracts (Gardenia, Linden Blossom and Mallow), selected for their softening and emollient properties, provide extreme comfort.

Its oil-free, non-comedogenic texture makes is suitable for all skin types.

You will love:

  • A radiant complexion.
  • The silky-soft, natural-looking finish that fades blemishes and fine lines.
  • The moisturising action of a non-greasy texture that does not dry out skin.
  • Your complexion’s light, clean feel, even in hot and humid climates.
Phyto-Teint Eclat’s lightweight texture allows it to be easily and quickly smoothed across skin, making it very pleasant to use daily.

Beauty Tips
After your usual face care treatment, apply the foundation with the fingertips using gentle smoothing motions, from the centre of the face outwards. Blend lightly onto the throat and ears. Alternatively, for a more sophisticated look, apply with a sponge using light sweeping motions.

For an optimal result, set the foundation using the Transparent Loose Face Powder or the Phyto-Poudre Compacte. This will enhance its even, long lasting properties.
Active Ingredients:

  • Gardenia: softens
  • Woodmallow: moisturizes, softens
  • Linden: softens, soothes
Phyto Teint Eclat is available in 6 colours:
  • Porcelain 0
  • Ivory 1
  • Soft Beige 2
  • Natural 3
  • Honey 4
  • Golden 5
