Spring Beauty Launches + Favorites

Spring is just around the corner and few beauty launches are happening right now that I find quite interesting + a few hit beauty formulas that I am loving right now. I have found the best complexion products (makeup + skincare) that has wowed me. In this post, I am sharing spring products that I am currently obsessed with.

Makeup

Shiseido beauty’s complexion products are my favourite and they just launched the new Synchro Skin Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 30 which is a hydrating & breathable formula that offers a nice natural finish with a perfect glow. I was really impressed with the  Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Foundation that I discovered about a year ago and I am happy to say that now I have a better formula with a good amount of SPF that I can wear on daily basis. Skin looks fresh, radiant and stays up for a good amount of time.

There are new launches from Charlotte Tilbury which are quite amazing. The new Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray is one of the best oil-free setting sprays you can use to set your makeup without melting or emphasizing the fine lines. It blurs out the appearance of pores, and I have been applying it before as a primer and after my makeup as a setting spray for a super fresh and flawless look.

Charlotte’s Hollywood Flawless Filter Luxury Eyeshadow Palette in Diva Lights is a limited edition palette and it is a perfect palette with a great range of four shades to easily create day and night looks. The formula is non-creasing and has a soft-focus effect with amazing pigment + there is minimal fallout.

The shades are infused with pearl pigment that offers an iridescent shimmer finish with a super soft and smooth finish. The formula is buildable and you can get them to wear wet for a more intense finish or dry for a subtle look.

  • Prime is a soft glitter pink champagne
  • Enhance is a nice and perfect metallic blush pink
  • Smoke is a metallic mink brown which is one of my favourite colours to create a nice smokey.
  • Define is a metallic antiqued brown that can be worn alone or as an accent shade.

Eyes To Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadows in Copper Sunrise is also a limited edition shade. This formula has been one of my favourite cream eyeshadow formulas with amazing lasting power. You can wear it alone or as a base to add more dimension to your look. I really like this new shade, it’s a light mauve pink gold. The formula glides nicely over the eyelid and has a soft-focus effect.

Rouge Dior lipsticks have been one of my favourite lipstick formulas. They stay up very nicely on lips without feeling dry. There is a quite great range of shades and finishes but I love the Rouge Dior Matte formula. There is quite a great range of shades but as a nude lipstick lover, I picked the Tendresse Matte which is a nice deep beige/mauve nude. They’re refillable.

At the same time, I picked up the new Miss Dior Rose N’Roses Eau de Toilette in roller pearl for my on-the-go bag. As many of you know I have been a floral fragrance lover and this one is a classic floral scent that I can layer to refresh my perfume along with any other floral scents. I go through one each spring.

Skincare

Fresh Beauty’s Kombucha 2-in-1 No-Rinse Cleanser & Prebiotic Treatment has been on my radar for the spring season. This is a one-step cleanser and treatment that removes makeup and impurities and at the same time protects skin’s barriers. The formula is AMAZING! it’s a perfect formula for me, that I can use in my nightly skincare routine. It literally removes all impurities from the skin and the skin feels fresh and smooth.

Recently I was sent out the new Liftactiv Supreme H.A Wrinkle Filler from Vichy, which is one of the new launches from their skincare line and it’s been in my daily skincare vanity since then. It’s probably the best affordable hyaluronic serum I have ever tried. You all always ask me for my favourite affordable skincare products so I had to share this news with you. It plumps skin immediately and it’s a perfect way to prep skin for makeup application.

I also rediscover the Laneige Water Bank Hydro Essence. It is a lightweight essence formulated with highly-concentrated green mineral water and infused with vitamin-rich green vegetables that gets into the skin to boost skin hydration and help with skin’s water loss & firmness. I have had used and loved Laneige skincare products especially the Water Bank collection in past (7 years ago reviewed here) and it is still a hit formula to boost my skin’s hydration level.

Glow Recipe just launched the Watermelon Glow AHA Pink Dream Body Cream that is a lightweight body moisturizer that hydrates and soothes skin immediately with Glow Recipe’s Watermelon scent. Living in Canada for more than 20 years my skin became dry and super sensitive. I always look into the different body cream formulas to soothe and hydrate my skin. I can confidently say that I have found a formula that soothes and hydrates my skin just the way I want it + without feeling heavy or greasy.

I hope this Spring round up was helpful for you to pick some of must haves while there are quite other launches that will be featured in coming days. Let me know what’s been your favorite Spring beauty product find?

L’Oreal Paris’ | Elvive 8 Second Wonder

We all don’t get to see our hairstylists for the past couple of months and for me it’s been more than 5 months. Not only that we don’t get to see our hairstylist and not get regular hair trimming, but we are also facing cold and dry winter months that seem like never ends. Although we no longer under a lockdown yet I am taking extra measures to avoid going out at this point. I already changed my hair colour at home which was a great achievement. And at the same time, I have been testing quite some new hair treatments to reset my dull and dry hair and finally, I got to try out the  L’Oreal Paris’ Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water that caught my eyes while I was shopping at my local Shoppers drugstore.

L’Oreal Paris’ Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water is an in-shower treatment that launched in 2020 and transforms hair visibly softer and smoother within 8 seconds. The results are immediate! Its formulated with amino acids, and lamellar water technology that targets the areas of the hair where it needs attention without weighing down the rest of the hair.

The packaging carries a pre-measure usage indicator depending on your hair length and thickness but overall I found that one usage is good enough. Although it’s meant to use after your shampoo and conditioner, yet I have switched it with my conditioner. Squirt a dose of Wonder Water onto your mid-lengths of the hair and massage it through your hair. And rinse it out, and you’re all set. You’ll see results just within one use especially after you get to style your hair after the treatment. I love that I don’t have to set in the shower to get a hair treatment (you know how quick a shower should take for a mother of 3). I have already used it more than 3 times for the past two weeks and it has visibly transformed my dry & dull hair into a healthier and smoother-looking hair. I saw its best results when I blowout my hair. I have been kept touching my hair and wanted to feel the softness, and it looks unbelievably shiny.

BareMineral | Strength & Length Serum-Infused Mascara & Strength & Length Serum-Infused Clear Brow Gel

BareMineral’s Strength & Length Serum-Infused Mascara & Strength & Length Serum-Infused Clear Brow Gel has been on my radar since its launch date. For the past year, I have been reaching out to more natural beauty products + products that enhance my natural look.
Strength & Length Serum-Infused Mascara (&29.00) & Length Serum-Infused Clear Brow Gel (C$29.00) are clean, vegan and cruelty-free mascaras with plant base lash serum which adds more excitement for me. It visibly delivers longer and fuller lashes & brows immediately after application as well as you’ll see dramatic results after a period of time.

Strength & Length Serum-Infused Mascara formulas are super black and formulated with Red Clover Flower + potent peptides that help lashes look healthier and longer with fewer fallouts. Although I love the full and bulky lash look yet this one really separates out the lashes nicely and evenly yet you can layer the lashes using the back of the applicator for a fuller and bolder look.

The brush itself is quite interesting, it’s designed the way that you don’t need to wiggle the lashes. I love how it brushes out the lashes individually while you can build up the look by adding more layers.

Strength & Length Serum-Infused Clear Brow Gel sets brows nicely in place with a lightweight gel formula that provides natural-looking bows with fullness. It also comes in a tinted formulation that adds more dimensions to the brows. It’s been quite some time since I have done my brows professionally and I have been plugging out here and there. I am looking forward to springtime and wanted to grow my brows fuller before I go to my brow stylist.

It has been almost more than 4 weeks since I have been using both the Mascara & Brow Gel and yet I still have to use another 4 weeks to really see the results which I will update you on soon.

Bottom line I loved both the new additions, knowing that they are formulated with ingredients that will have a strengthening and lengthening effect on my lashes makes me more excited. I have already seen a good transition to fuller and longer lashes since I have started to use them. As well as they perform quite well with good lasting power.
