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! 🍁

L’Oréal Lash Serum Solution

5 Aug

Hi beauties!

I can’t believe that August is here already. Around this time, I start to look forward to the fall, because it’s just too darn hot! 🥵

This is also a great time to check out new beauty products that are launched in advance of the fall season. (yay!)

Since my lashes take a beating from applying a ton of mascara and using different eyelash curlers, I’m always open to trying out a lash serum.

When I spotted the new L’Oréal Lash Serum Solution last week, I had to pick it up!

The serum is formulated with a Lash Caring Complex, which conditions and nourishes lashes with glycerin, pro vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, and arginine.

According to L’Oréal, it’s safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. However, I have to admit that I did experience a bit of itchiness when I first started using it. Since I was curious about the product, I didn’t ditch it, which is good because the itch soon disappeared.

You apply the serum with a brush applicator that you twist until the solution is visible on the brush. At first, it was a bit gloppy when I twisted the applicator, but eventually I figured out the number of twists that worked for me to deliver the solution.

You need to apply the serum to your lashes and lash line twice daily. I find that my lashes are a bit crunchy after applying the serum, so I use the serum at a time during the day when I don’t plan on wearing mascara.

The clinicals on this product indicate lash improvement after four weeks. I’ve been using the serum for about two weeks and I’m already seeing results: my lashes look denser and I haven’t seen as much lash loss.

In Canada, the L’Oréal Lash Serum Solution is priced around $25. Compared to other more expensive lash serums, this lash serum is worth checking out.
