Modèle Plump & Sealed Lip Treatment

2 Jan

Happy New Year, everyone! 🥂 I hope this is a great year for all.

I received a sample of the Modèle Plump & Sealed lip treatment (courtesy of Farleyco) that I wanted to share with you.

I’m always game for a lip treatment, especially one with two products: a plumper and a lipstick sealer.

The Collagen Lip Treatment comes in an easy-to-use lipstick tube. It restores lip volume, reduces the signs of aging, and helps retain moisture. The lipstick is transparent and feels like a lip balm. I like this texture because it leaves my lips moisturized.

To get results with the Collagen Lip Treatment, apply it three times daily for the first 30 days or until you get the desired lip plumpness. After that, it’s just maintenance by applying it once or twice daily. You can also use it as a base for lipstick. 👄

The Lipstick Sealer eliminates feathering and bleeding of lipstick, while making lipstick last for 8 hours. The botanical formula is paraben free and not tested on animals. The product comes in glass tube packaging with a brush applicator. Once you apply it, it has a bit of a cooling effect.

For long-lasting effects, apply lipstick and blot lightly with a tissue. Then, apply two to four generous coats of the Lip Sealer, while keeping lips apart for 1 minute. No eating or drinking (or kissing) for 20 minutes.

In Canada, you can find the Modèle Plump & Sealed lip treatment at select Familiprix, Guardian, IDA, Jean Coutu, Pharma Plus, Pharmasave, Rexall, and Uniprix stores.

KORRES Pure Greek Olive Oil 3-in-1 Nourishing Oil

1 Nov

Hi beauties!

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post because life has been difficult lately.

I’m not sure whether I’ll pick up the pace here, but it’s good to get back to some kind of a routine when you’re going through the roller coaster that is the grieving process.


Face and body oils have been around for awhile now, and it makes sense to incorporate one into your skin routine if you’re looking to deeply hydrate your skin.

The KORRES Pure Greek Olive Oil 3-in-1 Nourishing Oil is extracted from the olive groves of Crete. It contains organic extra virgin olive oil, hemisqualane, crambe seed oil, and a blend of Vitamins E, F, and fatty acids.

This 3-in-1 (face/body/hair) oil is very light, absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave a sticky residue. There’s a slight healthy sheen to the skin after application, which is a nice touch for the summer season.

The best feature of this anti-aging oil is that you can apply it from head to toe. In addition to using it as a traditional face oil, here are other unique applications:

  • Use as a primer before foundation for smoother application.
  • Apply to cuticles and nails to help restore them to health.
  • Moisturize the body after a shower (a little goes a long way).
  • Nourish the scalp and improve the look of breakage for hair ends (this is my favorite way to use it!).

One thing to keep in mind about this oil is that it does have a fairly strong scent. If you hate scented skincare, then the KORRES Greek Olive collection is not for you. I wish that KORRES would turn it down when it comes to scenting their skincare, but the benefits of the oil are still worth it to me.

All the best for a wonderful fall and holiday season! 🍁

Doll 10 Beauty CC Powder

3 Sep

Hi beauties. 👋

I won a gift card from Doll 10 Beauty recently, and one of the products I chose was a CC Powder compact.

Doll 10 Beauty was created by a cancer survivor, Dr. Doris Dalton. Her goal was to design easy-to-use products, which allow women to take 10 minutes out of their day to get “Dolled Up” no matter what they’re going through.

CC powders are a bit of a throwback, but a good quality powder can correct skin imperfections, smooth texture, and even out tone. The Doll 10 CC powder is enhanced with lavender pigments to brighten, green to minimize redness, and peach to add warmth.

Hands down, this is one of the best correcting powders I’ve ever tried. Over a light foundation, it adds more coverage; over moisturizer, it creates a natural finished look. 

Even though it’s the end of summer, it’s still hot and sweaty in Vancouver. When I apply this CC powder, I find that it has lasting power and prevents summer shine.

I can’t wait to see how it performs in cooler weather!

Have a great fall, everyone! 🍁
