UFCIH_S

With benefits in just 7 days, Kiehl’s revolutionizes hydration specifically for dry and very dry skin types in a new lightweight formula.

 

Kiehl’s Since 1851 presents its latest innovation, Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration for drier skin types, a revolutionary extra lightweight formula, with proven results in just one week. Drawing upon over 160 years of skin hydration expertise, Kiehl’s chemists have developed a paradoxical new formula architecture, specifically for drier skin types, that imparts deep hydration in a surprisingly lightweight architecture.

This new formulation provides improved 24 hour hydration and leaves skin looking visibly smoother. Instrumental results showed significant improvement in skin hydration and skin barrier protection in 100% of subjects. Clinical results demonstrated significant improvements on visible skin dryness in just 7 days.

Dry and very dry skin types comprise a large part of the world’s population: 33% in the United States, 32% in Korea, and 21% in Europe.1 These customers experience more intense symptoms than normal or combination skin: dry and very dry skin can feel itchy and tight, and look flaky or prematurely aged.

Unlike heavy creams available on the market to treat dry skin types, Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration does not use traditional thickeners such as waxes or butters that can feel heavy on the skin. Instead, it employs a lightweight cream foundation to impart a moisturizing yet weightless feel to the skin.

The chemists at Kiehl’s focused on a key ingredient, Enriched Hyaluronic Acid, a co-encapsulation of two hydrating molecules that work to complement each other and provide powerful, multi-action hydration benefits. This co-encapsulation is designed to “break” upon application to skin to deliver concentrated hydration pockets, providing immediate moisture that leaves skin hydrated for 24 hours. The result is an increase in the skin’s ability to capture moisture in the outermost layer of the epidermis, “filling the cracks” of dry skin.

Kiehl’s chemists selected a potent combination of powerful skin hydrating ingredients and infused them into an advanced, feather-weight cream architecture to create Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration.

Enriched Hyaluronic Acid is a co-encapsulation of two complementary hydrating molecules:
1) HyaluronicAcid:Thisingredientcanholdupto1000timesitsweightinwaterandisahighly

effective humectant that draws in moisture to keep skin hydrated.

2) BiomimeticHydrator:Thisbiocompatiblestructure,similartothestructureofthe phospholipids found in the human cellular membranes, helps seal in moisture. This hydrating ingredient is also known to be used in the medical world in soft eye lens technology to keep lenses hydrated, even in low humidity conditions.

With Enriched Hyaluronic Acid, the formula helps to increase water capture in the outermost layer of the epidermis to help “fill in the cracks” where symptoms of dry skin are most visible.

YSL is adding new collection of their Nail Polish range. La Laque Couture Spicy Collection consist of 1 gold flaky glitters and 6 cream shades. The shades released in this collection varies; some shades are very unique, it is something that I have not worn before whereas some other shade are quite similar to some of my nail polishes in my collection.

41 Eau de Rose 

This is described as Delicate Rose Petal Pink. The shade is very girly and the shade is opaque in two layers.

42 Safran Sultan

With La Laque Couture no 42 Saffran Sultan, YSL creates an atypical, intensely warm shade that is both surprising and chic. Essential for an inimitable, shade for an avant-garde YSL look.

According to the press release, YSL describe this shade as a royal yellow. It looks like a yellow mustard cream shade too. This is a very unique shade and I have nothing like this in my stash.

43 – Opulente Cannelle.

YSL describe this as a rich coral shade. I find that this shade is a mixture of a deep rose shade combined with brown. This shade reminds me of Moroccan houses with the exotic feeling. This is my go to color whenever I don’t feel like having a red nails but at the same time I don’t wish to have a nude nails too.

44 Ambre Gingemembre

YSL describes this shade as oriental orange. Somehow this shade reminds me of pumpkin too.

46 – Poivre Noir 

This color is describes as piquant plum. This shade is gorgeous and I love it so much. It is a deep plum shade which is suitable for all occasions.

46 – Piment d’Ailleurs 

YSL describes this shade as torrid red. In the swatch below, I applied Feuille d’Or on my index finger.

IMG_9208

 

 

47 Feuille d’Or

By just looking at the bottle, I am hooked onto this glitter shade. The glitter is gorgeous and it is looking festive. The texture of this nail polish is nice and it is easy to apply. Unlike some other glitter polishes, this glitter shade is not sticky and the gold sprinkles adds a touch of festive feeling to my nail.

Some tips from YSL on applying Feuille d’Or:

  • Applied over the opulent shades of La Laque Couture Spicy Collection. APply a fine coat over the entire nail, or just the half moons or the tips.
  • If you wish, apply a second coat to intensify the gilded look.
  • Feuille d’Or top coat can also be applied alone on bare nails for a 24 karat effect.

My Final Thought on the nail polishes in La Laque Couture Spicy Collection:

YSL never fail to impress me on their nail polish quality. The nail polishes are easy to apply; the brush are wide so it helps nail polish to be applied evenly and more easily. The shades are opaque in two coats and it does not feel thick when applied. Most YSL nail polishes last on my finger perfectly for about 3 days – I type everyday with my nails touching the keyboard and I do houseworks too. I am glad that YSL is always consistent with the formula of their nail polish. I can say that YSL is my favorite designer nail polish brand.

Chanel Spring 2013: Illusion d’Ombres in Diapasson & Le Vernis in Tapage Swatches

IMG_9196

 

After reading so many positive review on Diapasson, I finally decided to purchase this item. Diapasson is added to the permanent collection and it is a deep purple with very fine shimmer. I am a big fan of Chanel Illusion d’Ombre; I love the bouncy and smooth texture. The eyeshadow is so easy to apply and to blend and the pigmentation is superb!

IMG_9197

IMG_9199

 

Diapasson is a deep purple with duochrome effect. In certain light, I see it as a deep purple and sometime I see a hint of brown in it. In this picture, I couldn’t really capture the shimmer but you may see the fine shimmers in the next picture below. I applied two layers on the swatch below. The swatches below is taken outdoor with indirect sunlight.

 

IMG_9201

IMG_9200

 

I did a comparison of Diapasson and some other two Illusion d’Ombres that I think might look similar. They are Illusoire and Ebloui. The swatches below is taken under indoor lighting. The shimmers are captured better here.

Initially I thought Illusoire would look quite similar to Diapasson but it turned out that Illusoire looks much deeper and it has a deep grey tone in it too. Ebloui carries a plummy tone but it also leans more to brown shade.

IMG_9206

 

 

I also purchased the nail polish shade from this collection. Le Vernis Tapage looks like a very deep pink that leans towards red. I love Chanel red nail polish so I thought of adding this to my red nail polish collection. In the swatch below, I applied two coats of Tapage and I used Chanel Extreme Shine top coat.

Here’s a quick swatch of Tapage:

So what is your pick from this collection?

YSL Radiant Blush No 6 swatch

With Lunar New Year is just around the corner, I thought of sharing this picture with all of you. Recently YSL Beauty released a special packaging for the radiant blush no 6 with Lunar New year theme. From what I know, this packaging is Asia Exclusive but hopefully they would release it somewhere else in the future.

YSL Blush radiance no 6  consists of satin watermelon pink and salmon pink. I have swatched the shade when it is swiped on single shade and when it is mixed in the swatched below.

YSL Blush radiance no 6 is a permanent color but the packaging is not. So if you have a chance to pick this up, don’t miss the chance ;)

 

Happy Lunar New Year to those of you who celebrates! May the year of horse brings you good luck and good health, a prosperous career and a happy family too!

 

Thank you for reading!
