Atelier Cologne | Atelier Cologne Musc Impérial Pure Perfume

I love a good scent, something that is classic and very different with good lasting power. I just came across the Musc Impérial from Atelier Cologne (C$195.00 for 100mL and C$110.00 for 30mL).
Its very fresh scent and the formula are made from 90% renewable natural ingredients of the highest quality, harvested around the world.

Top Notes

  • Clary Sage from Spain
  • Bergamot from Calabria
  • White Musks

It carries a very sophisticated and seductive style. I absolutely love the blend of clary sage and bergamot that gives this fragrance a warmth.

The packaging is stunning! very exclusive and exquisite. Although it carries the brand’s Iconic style the combination of colors makes this packaging stand out and offers a very classic finish.

You can find this available online at Sephora. Have you tried Maison Perfumes before? I would love to know what’s your favorite scent.

Spring Beauty Launches on My Radar…

It’s the time of year when I put out my eyes on new and fresh launches from beauty brands. Most of these launches are ones that tempt me toward them depending on how the trend goes for the year, as well as what my beauty needs are at this particular time.
I am already testing quite many new beauty products that will be shared on upcoming posts but these ones are some beauty products that I think are going to be a super hit formula for this season.
I will either get them as a press sample to test and try while some will be purchased from me to share them with you all here with my thoughts on their performance and quality.

In general, I love Nars Cosmetics beauty products especially their eyeshadows. Nars | St Germain des Prés Eyeshadow Palette from Claudette Collection is one of the items from the collection that I have my eyes on. I absolutely love the combination of colors and finishes in this palette.

YSL | Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation you all know I always get too excited to find new complexion products especially foundation and concealer. I have been a long-time lover of the YSL beauty’s foundations and I still remember the first foundation that I purchased was the YSL Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation back then about 18 years ago in my early 20’s and I wore it on my Engagement day. So very excited to test this new formula.

Fenty Beauty | Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation I love full coverage powders and I always dig for those that don’t make my skin look dry and patchy. I think Rihanna nails her complexion products and looking forward to testing and try this new addition.

I always love Laura Mercier complexion products especially the Secret Camouflage Concealer Duo was one of my favorite concealers to hide my dark circles yet Laura Mercier | Secret Camouflage Concealer Duo Stick now comes in a new look. This is a 2-in-1 formula that is lightweight and full coverage, sounds good?
Yes, I am super excited about this new addition from her and this is going to be a new item that I will be reaching out to from now on.

Givenchy | Teint Couture Shimmer Powder is a Limited Edition compact that I am super excited about and I think it will a beauty product that you’ll need. I always love Givenchy’s complexion products especially their powders and can’t wait to try this.

There are quite amazing skincare launches yet Dior Capture Totale Set right now is offering quite an amazing skincare set which I find are perfect traveling. Dior is also introducing their Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss now in a new shade – Ultra Pink which is a very nice and fresh pink.

as well as Tatcha | The Dewy Serum Resurfacing and Plumping Treatment just launched a new addition to their Dewy line that sounds like a one skincare product that will must-have for this year.

As many of you know I am a huge lover of cleansing oils and balms, here Shu Uemura just launched Botanicoil Cleansing Oil that I am very excited to test and see how it works on my skin.

Another skincare item that has tempted me is the Murad | Rapid Dark Spot Correcting Serum. I want to get my hands to this as soon as possible since I live to use the brightening serums during the winter season.

Charlotte Tilbury launched few new beauty items yet I have my eyes on the new Hollywood Flawless Filter Luxury Eyeshadow Palette and the Walk of No Shame Jewel Pot Eyeshadow. I love her eyeshadow formulas especially the gel cream shadows.

A couple of hair care products that really excites me at this time are the Living Proof | Curl line, as well as the Gisou | Honey Infused Hair Oil is not something new but I have in my mind to test and try it.
Sol de Janeiro | Triple Brazilian Butter™ Hair Repair Treatment Mask is a new bundle of hair joy that I am looking forward to testing this season.

There few new scents that are really tempting me and the Spicebomb Night Vision Eau de Parfum is something I have my eyes one for this father’s day. I think its going to be a fresh scent for this season.
