Dior Uncovers Its First Ultra-Wear and Care Lipstick

A beauty guru definitely knows how iconic the Rouge Dior lipstick is in the beauty world and ladies we’ve got some news for you, as the French house blends this already swooning combination of color and creativity with care – resulting in what a woman would call “the perfect deal”. With care being a strong trend in the cosmetics scene today, Dior, with its share of extensive research, came up with a formula that not only provides your lips with hydration, but also uses flowers – which were ever-present in Monsieur Dior’s sources of inspiration in all fields.

“The Care has become an essential step in the creative process,” confirms Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup. “It is the very beauty of makeup that gains from this extra touch, since when you feel good, you look good.”

Rouge Dior Ultra Care colors your pout with a selection of hues ranging from raw shades to true reds, provides it with care and lasts for 12 hours. What else could make this new beauty marvel so special? In fact, its formula features 100% natural cameline oil that deeply nourishes your lips thanks to its richness in fatty acids and a derivative of jojoba oil extract in a double quantity comparing to Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge to help limit the loss of water and keep your lips perfectly hydrated.

For this new Rouge Dior chapter, the French house chose Natalie Portman, who reveals a softer and more sensual side of her character in a red sweater that recalls the softness of petals.

Lip Fillers

My girlfriend just called me to ask me if she should get her lips injected; “just a little bit” she said. Of course, my response was “do whatever makes you happy.” But let’s admit though, we all have that one friend that became addicted and is labeled “duck lips” because of her Instagram selfies.
Lip injections have become out-of-control-popular with even super young girls asking for them nowadays. If done right they look pretty amazing. But the idea of a needle going anywhere near my lips is frightening to me. That said, I do always stare at this one influencer’s lips in envy.

So, if you are self-conscious about your lips and the lip liner just isn’t cutting it, here is everything you need to know.
First off, the safest form is a hyaluronic acid injection. Collagen is a thing of the past and fat transfer is too permanent.

Go to a doctor that understands the look you are going for. For example, for a more natural look don’t do the corners of your mouth.

There are different injecting techniques so get more than one consultation.

It lasts about 4-6 months the first time and kind of dissolves on its own.

It does hurt a lot unless you get really numb and you might bruise from a couple of days to a week. Happy pouting!

Redefining Charm with Musky Fragrances

The weather is getting colder and as the temperature drops, you might be considering  a warmer fragrance. However, going for a perfume with warm notes doesn’t necessarily mean that the one you choose must have a strong scent. Here’s where the musky fragrances come in to offer you a great substitute for strong scents that are ideal for those colder times of the year.

Becoming rarer with time, musk in fragrances acts like the white canvas on which all the other notes lie. Why is it so important in the fragrance industry? Well, it’s all thanks to its ability to add a perfect balance to the perfume’s composition while adding a subtle touch of sensuality and warmth to it and making the perfume last longer as it reduces its evaporation rate.

Priced at almost $45,000 per kilogram, musk is one of the most precious ingredients used in perfumery. In fact, it’s not only precious in price, but its scent also adds an unparalleled luxurious feel to the fragrance. For the love of this sophisticated ingredient, we’ve gathered a list of perfumes that make musk their base note to get you ready for the colder days. Join us below and check it out!

Update Your Brush Collection

I don’t know about you but my brushes are like my babies. I take such good care of them because they are part of my everyday life. If I’m good to them they are good to me and stay with me for a long time. With that said, I have decided to add a few more to my collection and here are some incredible choices.

Fenty Cheek Hugging Bronzer Brush 120- First off it’s shaped like a shark tooth, how cool is that? But what is the point of that shape? Well our faces aren’t flat so when you put a regular brush against it, the product doesn’t go on correctly. But when it “hugs” your face it does exactly what it’s meant to do. 

Smashbox Fan brush- When using powder if you want a really light hand this is a must. It’s almost like a little tickle. Use it to gently apply setting powder, bronzer, highlighter and blush.  

HUDA BEAUTY Bake & Blend Brush- This double-sided brush is great for applying dense amount of product and then blending it out. Since I’m not much of a “baker”,I love using it when I contour with my cream bronzer.
