Clarins Éclat Minute Lip Perfector

This week many of my posts will be skincare or beauty related since I've been trying out new products for the past months in order to report back to you guys.

I will start by saying that I am not a big lip gloss wearer, they bother me, my hair sticks in them and most of the time they smudge all over your face.

Until Clarins Éclat Minute came into my life ! My friend spoke to me about it and I decided to give it a go, it is not extremely pigmented which was perfect for me, so I purchased it and since then, I cannot get it off my lips.

All my other lipsticks have taken a toll, since Clarins Éclat Minute was added to my collection. This lip product is described as a lip perfector and that is exactly what it does, it makes your lips looks amazeballs. First of all, this product has a vanilla smell which I absolutely adore. Once you apply it, it gives your lips a tiny tint and I don't know if it is just me, but I feel like it makes my lips look a tad plumper. To my surprise, the Clarins Éclat Minute acts like a wonderful lip balm and really hydrates my lips, while keeping them looking healthy and glossy.

This product is a definite win in my books, since it hydrates, plumps, glosses and smells good, you obviously cannot go wrong with all of that !

Enjoy !



Caudalie Beauty Elixir-Eau de Beauté

Sorry for the lack of posts but I've been trying to be a good girl and not raid Sephora or the drugstores, but sometimes a girl caves !

It is my obligation as a girl to share with you in a detailed review my product discovery of the year !

I am talking about the one and only Caudalie Beauty Elixir or Eau de Beauté !

Caudalie is a skincare brand that is very popular with our french neighbors and all throughout Europe. I had heard about this product a couple of years ago in the gossip magazines because Mrs.Beckham was apparently a vivid consumer, but I never bothered, until this year when it caught my eye in Sephora. The Beauty Elixir comes in a 1 oz. bottle which is perfect for first times users, for a try-out. I won't hide it, it ain't cheap but it is totally worth the hype. I have been using it since march and I am a satisfied consumer.

Caudalie's Beauty Elixir is known as a part-toner part-serum that is formulated without parabens or sulfates and based of essentials oils. Once you spritz this Elixir you will either love it or hate it, since it is made with essentials oils, the smell is very strong but very refreshing.

This product is described to ''smooth the skin and tighten pores while providing a splash of radiance''. Trust me this product has changed my skin. I've always had oily skin, come winter and summer, and this product has diminished drastically the oiliness of my skin and at the same time has reduced my pores. I kid you not, I was iffy about this product because it doesn't have a defined role, but I promise that if the smell doesn't bother you, you will get addicted.

This product comes with me everywhere, hence the 2 sizes that I now own, you can spritz this during the day to refresh you makeup. I use this product twice a day. First, I spritz the Beauty Elixir in the morning, after I was my face, I let it sit a couple of minutes, then I am ready to apply my day cream. At night, I spritz the Beauty Elixir during my nighttime routine after washing my face and right before applying my serum, it brings a relaxing vibe and soothes the skin after a long day. Also, you can use this as a setting spray right after finishing your makeup, it leaves your skin with a beautiful glow.

I kid you not this product needs to be on every girl's vanity or handbag, go on at Sephora and spritz it on, and if you like the smell, try it out, you will not regret it !

I just came back from a seven day holiday in the South and it was exactly what I needed. I am sure many of you agree that when you are on vacation your fashion sense consists of bathing suits and flip flops and when nighttime arrives you don't want it to become complicated and you search only for comfort.

Well, that is exactly what I did, as you can see, I stuck with basics ; shorts, maxi dresses, flip flops and cotton, cotton, cotton. When you pack your luggage make sure you have basics that you can bring from day to night by adding a piece of jewelry, that way your luggage will be lighter !
