Dior Tie Dye Pink Sunrise 01 blush review

Housed in a cannage case, Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush reveals a harmony of shades for your cheeks to give them the perfect sunny glow.

Sweep on with a kabuki brush, concentrating on areas naturally warmed by the sun—the top of your forehead, nose and cheeks. To sculpt tanned skin tones, use a blend of orangey and effervescent coral hues. To brighten light complexion, use a gradation of soft pinks and pearly mauve.

I chose 01 Pink Sunrise, the product is beautiful in its case, and applies easily, no glittery effect, very light shimmer , with an easy to apply soft pink powder formula. In summary, it is just a pink blush, the colors cannot be separated easily for sculpting purposes. Also love the goat hair brush it comes with, usable product as well. I originally expected this to apply like Diorskin Nude Shimmer, but this is an actual blush, much more pigmented. Love Dior powders/blush.

This product is... just WOW for me! I used it last night and today I still can feel it working for my skin! 
It gives such a big comfort to your face! After a prego time my skin was aking for more water, hydratation and this serum helps me to keep it in a good condition. 

It looks gorgeous and innovative!! I love the droplets in it, looks kinda like magic. It feels very fresh and hydrating and I love to apply this on my neck too. I don't really feel a difference, therefore I'm on the fence if I would buy this again. It does give a really nice hydration boost.. but it is too expensive to just give a hydration boost and nothing more. But for now Chanel, it's a yes.

New Shiseido WET FORCE sunscreen review

SHISEIDO has been actively pursuing stronger UV protection technology that maintains its performance even when exposed to water or perspiration, to shield the skin against UV in a variety of common situations, including outdoor leisure activities.

As a result of the most recent research and development, SHISEIDO has successfully developed WetForce sunscreen technology, the first in the world that interacts with the minerals in water and perspiration, defying common sense as its sunscreen film becomes more uniform, smoother and stronger upon contact with water or perspiration. This creates a more uniform UV shield, with about 120%1 higher protection effect.

WetForce technology will be incorporated in sunscreen products to be launched next spring.

Note 1: UV protection effect before water contact calculated as 100%

Background of the development

To meet the needs of customers who want to protect their skin from every conceivable negative effect of UV, from everyday life to harsh outdoor situations, SHISEIDO has developed technologies for sunscreen that is pleasant to apply, offers UV protection with maximum tanning resistance, has excellent waterproof properties that keep UV protection from declining even after sports or swimming, and comes off easily with facial cleanser or soap, requiring no special removers.

Because conventional sunscreen technologies were incapable of maintaining their full UV protection effect after contact with water or perspiration, SHISEIDO researched and developed ways to prevent this decline. SHISEIDO focused on the minerals contained in water and perspiration and turned convention on its head by asking “what if water contact could improve the performance of a sunscreen film applied to the skin, actually enhancing the UV protection effect?” With this approach, SHISEIDO embarked on a new path of research and development.

Research and development of WetForce

In SHISEIDO’s research and development, the company focused on the relationship between minerals, such as the calcium ions and magnesium ions in tap water, sea water, perspiration, and the components that make up the film in sunscreens.

This resulted in the discovery of an Ionic Mineral Sensor, a technology that causes the minerals in water or perspiration to bond, improving the water repellency of the sunscreen, and making the sunscreen film on the skin more uniform, smoother, and stronger, with a higher protection effect.

This new technology will be incorporated into sunscreens in addition to the features already developed by SHISEIDO, such as easy removal without the need for special cleansers, and a texture that is pleasant to use.

Different sunscreen products may contain the same type and amount of UV absorbent and still provide varying degrees of UV protection, depending on the uniformity of the films they create on the skin.

If we compare Sunscreen A, which is applied as a uniform film and blocks 99% of UV, with Sunscreen B, which is applied unevenly so that half of the applied area is 90% blocked, and the other half is 99.9% blocked against UV, the UV protection effect of Sunscreen A is approximately five times as high as that of Sunscreen B, illustrating the importance of a uniform sunscreen film. Conventional sunscreens however, become compromised when in contact with water or perspiration, causing a decline in the uniformity of the film, and a related decline in their UV protection effects. The challenge SHISEIDO took on was to overcome this common problem, and to keep this decline from occurring.

The newly developed WetForce technology emerged as the innovation that, when exposed to water or perspiration, makes the sunscreen film more uniform and smooth, enhancing its UV protection effect on the skin.

SHISEIDO scientists see vast possibilities for WetForce, and they are exploring more UV protection products that incorporate it, to help people in all areas, with all types of skin, enjoy active lives outdoors, even under the strong summer sun.

This is my HG product. I'm truly impressed how nicely it works with heavy and lightweight foundations. It's really matte and light on skin.

Dior Cruise fashion show 2016 new products for Fall '16

Dior Cruise Fashion Show 2016 

Get the fresh look! 

New products for Fall !

“The make-up is very natural as I wanted to create contrast with Raf Simons’s collection, which plays with checks, prints and different associations,” explains Peter Philips. Adding that this “luminous naturally flattering beauty look reflects the relaxed side of the collection, embodying its cool, fluid style.”

How to: 

1. To achieve a luminous and transparent complexion, begin by blending Diorskin Star Fluid Foundation into the skin.

2. Next add a touch of colour to your cheekbones with Diorblush Cheekstick in Rosewood.

3. Add radiance by lightly dusting Diorskin Nude Cosmopolite highlighter all over.

4. Philips used a range of natural shades from the Dior Eye Reviver palette. “I used the primer as a base across the eyelids, then I selected eyeshadows depending on skin tone. Next, I applied the darkest shade, which is a stronger brown, just along the lash line. To finish the eye look, lashes were coated with Diorshow mascara in black and brows were emphasisied using Diorshow Brow Styler Gel and Diorshow Brow Styler.

5. For a subtle shine, Philips used Dior Contour Universel 001 neutral lip liner and Lip Maximizer in Sunrise 006

Chanel CC cream new shades !

The expertise of Chanel Research meets the artistry of the Chanel Makeup Studio in this fusion of skincare and long-wearing makeup.
Enriched with anti-aging and anti-oxidant properties, the next generation of lightweight, velvety CC CREAM creates a fresh and flawless complexion while nourishing and protecting skin.
A complex of peach extract Prunus Persica, an age-defying ingredient unique to Chanel, with regenerating properties, helps visibly reduce wrinkles and fine lines, while smoothing skin.
A natural marine extract comforts the complexion.
Hyaluronic Acid helps maintain optimal hydration levels all day long by retaining moisture inside skin.
Broad Spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen effectively blocks age-accelerating UVA-UVB rays. Anti-pollutant ingredients help remove impurities and protect skin’s natural defense barriers to help prevent free-radical damage, which can lead to premature aging.
The appearance of redness, dark spots and pores is visibly diminished for a fresh, natural and long-lasting finish with moderate makeup coverage.
 The shades are Beige 10, 20, 30, 40.
The formulation is reassuringly thick. I find that this applies best with fingers, and it thickens as you massage it into the skin to form a really lovely veil of coverage which still looks like skin. I love the fact that this contains SPF 50. It goes for healthy finish, and looks like your skin on a great skin day!!!
