Guerlain foundation L’Essentiel Natural glow 16h wear – SPF 20

Guerlain has a new foundation and the bottle is really incredibly beautiful.. it is not out yet all over the place, but soon it will be. Here is what I was able to dig online.. check the bottle.. isn’t it just adorable? L’Essentiel – Natural glow foundation 16h wear – SPF 20     It also comes with a brush that you buy separately.. but I really don’t care that much about the brush as it does not appear to be easily cleanable. See photo of the brush down below. I am just attracted by this bottle shape created by a designer.. just adorable..   DESCRIPTION Naturalness & make-up performance come together for the first time at Guerlain. A foundation Read More

Beauty in the Age of Celiac Disease by Ardith McCann

The Rollercoaster Welcome everyone to February, 2019 style. This month is like a box of weather chocolates, eh? You just never know what you are really going to get from year to year. This year is clearly no exception. From a Polar Vortex to lots of rain to a rollercoaster of daily temperatures, it’s a wild ride for sure. For me, coming out of January is like reaching a calm section of that rollercoaster ride. After three weeks of excruciating, unidentified illness so intense I was convinced at least four times that I was dying, I am off that scary ride and now trying to embrace the teacup version I seem to be on now. Since the local “health” clinic Read More

Guerlain Lipstick | Rouge G de Guerlain

How many lipsticks can one have? What is this new lipstick addiction? I feel like women buy lipsticks more than any other makeup product, when they are under heavy stress.. do you think that is true? I also heard that in times of war, despite the lack of money, women have continued to buy lipsticks.. There must be a reason for it. Maybe because it is a quick “pick me up”.. or is it? To be honest, I do have enough lipsticks to last me a while. I am being actually very modest here. While it was sale season, with the holidays coming and intense work at the office, I ordered a few Nars Lipsticks to add to my already Read More

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Aqua Nude Foundation

I so love this one foundation! I will explain why.. but I will be totally and brutally honest. I am in love with the scent. If creators of skincare knew how important scents are for some women, and what a role scents play in our decision to lean more towards a certain product rather than another, they would be actively concentrating on making sure their products are scented. Sure there are some who don’t like scented foundation, I am not one of them, I adore yes I said it, I simply adore the scent of this foundation. I have had previous foundations from Guerlain almost 20 years ago and it had the same scent and it was as ‘fluid’ as Read More

A luxurious highlighter | Guerlain Terracotta Electric Light Bronzer Highlighter

Every year Guerlain creates a special edition product and recently they created a very beautiful copper bronzing powder. To me it looks like a gold highlighter. When you touch the product you feel it is gentle and soft on your fingers. Very wearable. As for the packaging, it is la creme de la creme, very beautiful and elegant.. almost like a piece of jewelry. If you don’t own one item from Guerlain, do it a mission for you to get at least one of their compacts. It will be well worth it. Now let’s see what is being said online about this product… Guerlain Terracotta Powder, the emblematic leader in bronzing powder, celebrates the festive season and Guerlain’s 190th anniversary Read More

My latest skincare rituals | youtube video

I love doing youtube videos.. it is a way of sharing with others my experiences with skincare and makeup and my beauty journey.. whatever it is we seem to be all obsessed with beauty and anti aging in this century. Women want to stop aging at all cost ! I have used high end skincare since I was very young and today I gravitate around luxury and high end products naturally. Not that there is anything wrong with drugstore skincare.. some in fact are equally good if not better. Please keep that in mind. Makeup and beauty or skincare products selection is a deeply personal matter.. In this video I am sharing my latest loves and what I use, all Read More
