Addict Lip Tattoo is my new favorite lipstick/lipgloss. Since I bought it two months ago I’ve been wearing it every single day.
As usual the packaging is meticulous. It has the Dior Addict lipstick signature shape with a shiny silver bell at the top which is the handle of a foam applicator. The applicator feels soft and moves really smoothly on the lips. Unlike the other liquid/fluid lipstick from Dior this one does not come in a glassy see-through container. Although you can’t see the actual color the container is in the same color as the lipstick only in mat. I find this a little bit confusing since this isn’t a mat lipstick by any definition.
Addict Lip Tattoo is described as “Long wear tint with extreme weightless feel” by Dior (check it here). I agree with the second part, I wouldn’t feel it on my lips if it wasn’t for the taste which is good by the way. It’s a little bit sweet yet it’s not too much. But when it comes to “long wear” it’s not exactly what I had expected. This lipgloss comes off whenever I eat or drink something yet it last really long hours as well. Let me explain; The first time I saw the lipstick stain left on the coffee mug I was disappointed. Until two hours later when I stood in front of a mirror to retouch my makeup. Then I realized that my lips looked much brighter and more colorful than ever. It didn’t look like that I was wearing any lipstick and I definitely didn’t feel anything on my lips. Yet here I was staring at my lips in amazement. After a few days I find out that If I want a natural look all I need is to move the applicator once on my lips. The Addict Lip Tattoo leaves a hint of color on my lips that looks so natural. It’s the most natural looking lipstick I’ve ever come across. In that case it won’t come off. On the other hand this is a lipstick that you can build up to create a more dramatic look which will come off layer by layer until your lips are left with a tint of color. This would be fantastic natural look after a whole night drinking and dancing with your partner. It guarantees that you won’t say good night without a kiss, or more than that.
The color I’m using currently calls Natural Beige (number 421) I also like the color Natural Rosewood (number 491) which I’ve already ordered and waiting for it to arrive. If there is one product you want to try this summer let it be the Addict Lip Tattoo from Dior.
During last month or so my skin felt dehydrated and dull despite applying moisturizing cream regularly. One of the skin experts at beauty shop suggested that I used an oil treatment. Among all her suggestions I chose Clarins orchid oil since I’ve heard a lot about it.
First thing that I’ve noticed is the smell, it’s absolutely lovely. It reminds me of a fresh spring bouquet. I apply two drops all over my face and neck every night and some mornings. Although the texture is a little bit thick -it isn’t watery at all- it absorbs by skin almost immediately. I noticed that it fairly minimizes pores on the T-zone in addition to giving my skin a tint of glow. This was a surprise for me since there was nothing on the description about it being pore-minimizing.
I love to apply it after washing my face when the skin is damp. The oil keeps the moisture in and makes my skin feel amazing. I’ve been using this for last three weeks and I love the result. My skin feels softer, more radiant and really hydrated.
If you have dehydrated skin or just need something to rejuvenate and nourish your skin this Clarins oil treatment is a perfect option.

So far bare Mineral has not disappointed me and this serum essence is not an exception. According to the brand this is first of its kind with lots of benefits for every skin type due to its natural ingredients. I have a combination-skin type which means that I have an oily T-zone while the other parts, specially my chin, are dry. Yet the serum is work evenly on every area of my face.
I use two pumps for my face and neck. The serum is pale, almost watery and really light weight. It absorbs quickly into the skin and tighten it up at once. It does not provide any coverup neither adds any color to the skin. Yet my skin feels smoother and softer instantly.
I also noticed that there are less pores visible on the T-zone since two weeks ago that I started using Skinlongevity. I use this every morning on my face and neck under the moisturizer cream. For night skin care I switch between bare Mineral Skinlongevity and Lôncome hydrazen constantly. But I use the Skinlongevity on my neck both morning and night on clean skin.

I change my skin care routine almost every season to protect my skin. One of the most important factors is to choose a right moisturizer according to the weather. A few months back when I was about to buy a new moisturizer/ day cream I decided to give the Lancôme Hydra Zen anti stress moisturizing cream a try since Hydra Zen Beauty Essence is one of my favorite( read my review on the Hydra Zen Beauty Essence here).
During last four months I use the cream every morning on my face and neck. It makes me fall in love with my skin again. I don’t see any redness that used to appear on my skin after spending a few hours outside in the cold.
Although Hydra Zen moisturizing cream has rather a rich consistency it does not feel heavy on skin. It makes my skin soft and keep it moisturized all day without making it oily. The surprising part is that the cream has the same affect on the t-zone (which is oily) as the rest of my face. Having a combination skin type make it really hard to find a good moisturizer like that. So there is no surprise that I love this one so much that I’ve already purchased the second one.
The only down point I can think of is that the Lancôme anti stress cream is not perfume-free so there is a chance that those who are really sensitive to smell won’t like it. I personally don’t have any problem with the scent since it’s really pleasant and makes me feel even more fresh. You can check out the cream here and the beauty essence here.
