Mary Kay Brush Cleaner

I have to say, when I first heard that Mary Kay was coming out with a brush cleaner, I was thrilled! If you follow me on Twitter, you already knew because I had tweeted about it. 
I don't understand why not all cosmetics companies carry their own brush cleaner?! It would make sense, wouldn't it? Take note cosmetics companies! ;)

Cleaning your brushes is essential if you want to keep your brushes 1- in good shape 2- keep germs away from your face (bacteria = acne) and your products (cosmetics are expensive, we all know that, so you want to make sure you treat them right, and that includes avoiding contamination with dirty brushes).  

All you need:

1- Paper towels or clean towels (I use paper towels because I already spend my life doing laundry so no need to add to my never ending pile!)
2- Brush cleaner
3- Dirty brushes
4- A good TV show or music CD to keep you company while you clean (MOTIVATION ladies!!)


1. Dirty brushes (shown here: mix of foundation, cream products, gel liner and powdered products like eye shadows and blushes for testing purposes! Yes, I had fun getting them dirty.):

2. Spray brush cleaner on dirty bad boy (the guinea pig here is a MAC 219 pencil brush).

3- Swirl the brush onto the paper towels to remove all traces of makeup. Spray and repeat until all clean...Ta da!!! (shown here: result after two sprays and 2 swirls):

4- Let your clean brushes air dry overnight. I like propping them up head down on a rolled-up hand towel to keep any moisture away from the ferrule. Just a little tip! ;)

I am a MAC brush cleaner fan (tried Quo, hated it). I have to say that the Mary Kay Brush Cleaner is a great alternative. As you can see in the picture, it removed ALL traces of makeup from the brush with just 2 sprays. The only thing I noticed, is that it doesn't work as well on long-wear cream shadows (it takes a few more sprays than the MAC version to get the product out completely). 

If you don't use long-wear cream products often, I would definitely recommend this brush cleaner. It smells divine and does what it claims. Plus, it helps condition bristles. At $10 CAD for a 6 fl. oz. bottle, you can't go wrong!

How often do YOU clean your brushes? What is your favorite brush cleaner? Leave me a comment below. I LOVE it when you guys share your thoughts. ;)

Psst! Mary Kay now offers makeup brushes. Review to follow! ;)

Yves Rocher Hydra Végétal

Fidèle à son principe de mettre en avant des produits à base de composants naturels, Yves Rocher est allé explorer de nouvelles régions pour découvrir de nouvelles plantes pour mettre au point sa toute nouvelle ligne de soins de peau. C’est au Canada et au Mexique que la nouvelle gamme d'Yves Rocher, Hydra Végétal, trouve ses origines. De là mon intérêt, vous savez combien j'aime parler de produits canadiens (ou conçus avec des ingrédients trouvés en sol canadien). 
True to its vow to always use ingredients that come from the plant world, Yves Rocher decided this time around, to go explore new landscapes to create its newest line - Hydra Vegetal. It's in Canada and Mexico that the Hydra Vegetal skin care line roots come from. This is why I was so interested when I first heard about it, as you all know how much I love to talk about Canadian products (or products created using ingredients found in Canadian soil).

A base de sèves végétales au fort pouvoir hydratant, ces produits ont un double effet: ils permettent à la fois d’hydrater la peau et de l’embellir grâce à l’association exclusive des sèves végétales d’Érable du Canada (un peu de fierté canadienne ici!) et d’Agave Bleue du Mexique. 
The Yves Rocher team chose two types of botanical saps for the amazing moisture-capturing capabilities they have; combining botanical Maple (a little Canadian pride here!) and Organic Blue Agave saps for the double effect these components have on the skin: long-lasting moisture and skin radiance.

Grâce à ses deux composantes, votre peau demeurera gorgée d'eau et qui dit peau hydratée, dit peau en santé! 
Thanks to these two botanical saps, your skin will no longer be thirsty. And hydrated skin is healthy skin!

Ces produits ont sauvé ma peau en croisière il y a quelques semaines après un vilain coup de soleil (surtout le Gel Crème Hydratation Intense 24h que j'ai également appliqué sur mes épaules et décoletté). L'odeur est très fraîche (ça sent le propre!) et la sensation apaisante et rafraîchissante. These products have saved my skin on a recent cruise I took after suffering a bad sunburn (the 24h Intense Hydrating Gel Cream was a lifesaver! I also used it on my shoulders and decoletté where I had also burned pretty bad). The entire line has the same fresh clean scent and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and soothed.

La gamme Hydra Végétal comprend/The line includes:

  1. Hydrating Cleansing Milk/ Lait Démaquillant Hydratant (200ml) : Removes in-depth all traces of makeup and leaves your skin soft and hydrated. I use it at night only (I prefer the gel cleanser for morning routine)/Démaquille en profondeur en apportant hydration à la peau. Mon nettoyant de soir (je préfère le nettoyant en gel pour ma routine du matin).
  2. Hydrating Toner/Tonifiant Hydratant (200ml) : One of my favorites from the line. To be used after cleansing but before moisturising. It perfect cleansing by removing the last impurities, soothes and prepares the skin to receive the moisturizing agent./ Un de mes produits favoris de la gamme. À utiliser avant les soins et après le nettoyant. Il termine le nettoyage, apaise et prépare la peau à recevoir le soin hydratant.
  3. 24h Intense Hydrating Gel Cream/Gel Crème Hydratation Intense 24h (50ml) : Moisturizer suitable for normal to combo skin. Gel-Creme texture. Very light but moisturizes for 24h/ Soin hydratant fraîcheur pour peaux normales à mixtes. Texture de Gel-Crème. Hydrate durablement pour 24h
  4. 24h Rich Hydrating Cream /Crème Riche Hydratation Intense 24h (50ml) : For dry skin. Rich and creamy texture. Leaves skin deeply moisturized for 24h. Offers skin incomparable comfort./ Pour peaux sèches. Texture riche et crémeuse. Laisse la peau hydratée en profondeur pour 24h. Apporte comfort extrême aux peaux extrèmement sèches et sensibles.
  5. Refreshing Gel Cleanser/Get Nettoyant Rafraîchissant (125ml) : Eliminates traces of makeup, impurities and sebum. Great for combo skin. Leaves your skin comforted and radiant. Designed to give you a fresh start for the other products in the line to work as efficiently as possible. I use it in the mornings./ Élimine toutes traces de maquillage, impuretés et sébum. Sensation rafraîchissante peau nette. Formulé pour optimiser le rendement des autres produits de la gamme. Je l'utilise comme nettoyant du matin.
  6. Instant anti-wrinkles moisturizer/Hydratant Anti-Rides Immédiat (30ml) : Instantly smoothes wrinkles. Provides deep moisture to erase fine lines caused by skin dehydration. + enriched with Hyaluronic Acid./ Estompe immédiatement les rides. Offre une hydratation intense et durable pour effacer les ridules causées par la déshydratation de la peau. + enrichi en Acide Hyaluronique.

Mary Kay Hollywood Mystique

Hi beautiful readers, I know I have been MIA lately. Life is just a teenie bit hectic right now ;)
Bonjour mes jolies! Je sais, je était temps que je blog! Ma vie est un peu folle ces temps-ci, ce qui explique l'interval entre mes nouveaux billets.

But, it's saturday morning and I figured why not blog and show you the Mary Kay Limited Edition Holiday collection - Hollywood Mystique - while sipping on my morning coffee :)
Ce matin je me suis dit, c'est Samedi matin et pourquoi pas prendre mon café en bloguant sur la collection des Fêtes de Mary Kay Hollywood Mystique

This season, Mary Kay reinvents vintage Hollywood glamour. Express your inner starlet by pairing bold, high-impact lips and nails with well-defined eyes in feminine neutrals. Have fun experimenting with these new, of-the-moment looks and find your starlet style here.

Let me show you the collection (with the help of my oldest - her hand actually lol- who thinks beauty blogging is pretty cool!). I always say, a picture is worth a thousand words. And when it comes to make-up it's the only way to go!
Laissez-moi vous montrer la collection (avec l'aide de ma grande - sa main en fait- qui trouve qu'être blogueuse beauté c'est vraiment cool!). Comme je le dis toujours, une photo vaut mille mots. Et quand on parle de maquillage, c'est encore plus vrai!

 Deux teintes en édition limitée des Brillants pour les lèvres NouriShine Plus Une Beauté qui Compte dans les teintes Inspiration et Possibilités. La 3 ième teinte est une de mes teintes préférées de la gamme permanente de ces petits gloss hydratants - Berry Tart.

-Eye Intrigue quad/Quatuor Intrigue:
Includes 4 monochromatic shades. In a pinch, you can even use the two middle shades as blusher! How handy is that?

Eye Intrigue e/s quad/quatuor. 
On base skin, no primer/ sur peau nue, sans base.

I cannot tell you how many times I was asked what perfume I was wearing. The new fragrance Dance to Life is also offered in Radiant Shimmer Lotion. This is great for evening looks. I brought it with me on the cruise and wore it every night on my decolleté and shoulders. It just adds a little bit of fine gold shimmer on your skin. It is very lovely. ;)
Je me suis fait demander tellement de fois ce que je portais comme parfum quand je suis allée en croisière. Dance to Life est aussi disponible en lotion lumière chatoyante. Produit parfait pour les looks de soirée. Je l'avais emmené avec moi en croisière et je l'ai porté tous les soirs sur mon décolleté et mes épaules. Cette lotion ajoute un voile de fines paillettes dorées sur la peau. L'effet est tellement joli!

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure & Kiss Nail Dress Halloween Collection - Spooky!

Halloween is just around the corner and I am sure you guys have your costume and make-up all planned out already...right? If not, then you might be even more interested to check out these new fun Halloween nails. They are an easy way to accessorize for the season!

Check out these cool displays!

The best thing about these, it takes only minutes to put them on! The sticky tabs on the imPress nails make it so easy to do and mess free! If you need more info, check out my review here.

Ok, so being the big baby that I am lol I couldn't wait to see what they would look like on! Presenting the Broadway imPress Nails Limited Edition in Orange with the Kiss Nail Dress in style #57860 (accent nail).

As you can see in the pic, the Kiss Nail Dress gave me a little grief...these aren't decals, they are stickers...see the evil bubbles on the sides of the nail?  Now, my question is, would they have given me this much trouble on bare nails? I will definitely have to test it out and report back. 

I really love the fun spooky designs offered in the 2012 Halloween collections. Note: these are much longer than the regular imPress nails. Scary spooky nails need to be long after all! But you can always cut and file them down to the desired length.

What do you think?

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to jazz up your Halloween look, definitely take a look at these nails from Kiss and Broadway Nails next time you stop at the drugstore or Walmart. Available now in 6 new designs for each, these limited edition designs retails between 8.99$ CAD and 10.99$ CAD. 

Are you doing anything fun for Halloween this year?

Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine

Maybelline recently came out with a new range of insanely pigmented lip glosses - the Color Sensational High Shine.

I was a little bit weary about testing them out (let's be honest, we are among friends after all). I have tried many Color Sensational lipsticks and I am not a fan of the formula. The only shade I will grab for (out of the 6 I own) is Born With It. But, I have to say, these are truly a ''beauty find of the month'' for me.

-wax free formula
-non-sticky (love!)
-The shine effect makes your lips appear fuller.
-Comfortable to wear, they don't dry out your lips
-No need to apply lipstick underneath, they are pigmented enough to wear on their own (great for busy moms!).
-Sleek packaging with a great doe foot applicator. The slant in the tip makes all the difference ladies!

Gleaming Grenadine, Iced Chocolate, Raspberry Reflections
Iced Chocolate has become my go-to "throw it on and forget it" shade when I am short on time. It's perfect to go with a smokey eye too.

The Color Sensational High Shine glosses are available in 12 different shades and retail for $9.99 CAD each.You can find them in drugstores and mass retail stores.

Have you tried the Color Sensational High Shine glosses? What do you think of the formula?

Want You To Want Me - Kisses On My List/ Anastasia of Beverly Hills Review

I love great PR pitches. Remember when the PR people for Anastasia of Beverly Hills sent me the See and Be Seen kit to review and they had included a View Master in their press kit? Fun, right? This time around for their Holiday 2012 goodies, they made it fun again!

The Want You To Want Me kit came in with....a record! Oh so 1970's! Which is also the theme of the kit, with its design and shade names drawing inspiration from the disco chic era!

Even though I am not ready to start thinking about Xmas until after Halloween (at least!! lol). I just had to show you these now!

The set comes in a gorgeous ''clutch-like' velvet packaging with rose-gold accents.

The Want You to Want Me is a kit within a velvet like clutch.  The set includes an eye shadow palette you can use to create a ton of 70′s inspired looks (c'mon, you know you want to!). Side note: don't you just love the shade names? So fun!

I just love the rose gold hardware on the clasp and the chain accent on the front and back of the clutch (love the attention to detail!). Inside, you have the compact palette, jet black liquid eye liner, clear brow gel (structured brows are so IN this season) and even a dual-ended mini eye shadow brush. 

The eye shadows are velvety soft. I did experience fallout with a few shades but nothing a little loose powder dusted under my eyes couldn't help take care of ( take note of the tip ladies! Then all you need to do is brush it all away with a clean kabuki brush).

Anastasia of Beverly Hills is also offering a lip gloss set (Paraben Free) this coming Holiday season. The Kisses On My List set contains 6 gorgeous ''tame'' shades perfect for everyday wear or to pair up with the smoldering plum smokey eyes you can create with the Want You To Want Me set. Each gloss is named after famous 70’s muses: Lola, Maggie May, Sharona, Roxanne, Jolene, and Moi.

A limited-edition HydraFull Gloss set that includes three sheer, ultra-hydrating glosses and three new and exclusive Hypercolor glosses.

I love the shade range included, but a plum or red shade would have been a great addition to this set (to wear with the more neutral shades included in the eye shadow palette I am thinking!). Nothing is ever perfect right?

To end this post on a fun note, take a look at the footage of the behind the scenes at the “Want you to want me” set. 70's glam, rock and roll and giant hairblowing fans all worked together to create this look! Hello inspiration!

The Want Me To Want You (44.00$ CAD) and Kisses On My List (39.00$ CAD) sets are already available at Sephora or online at Will they be on your wish list this holiday season? Pssst! They are sized perfectly to fit in a stocking! ;)

Am I alone with this song stuck in my head now?

p.s. Étant donné la longueur de cet article, j'ai opté de le laissé seulement dans une langue. Mais, si certaines d'entre-vous aimerait pouvoir lire cet article en français, laissez-moi un commentaire au bas de ce billet. Il me fera plaisir de le traduire!

Batiste Dry Shampoo/Shampoing sec

We've all done it. Wake up late one morning and no time to shampoo. Or get in the shower thinking "oh my hair is fine, no need to wash it today" only to realize after getting out of the shower that it was in need of a wash afterall. Oops!
Ça nous est tous arrivé au moins quelques fois. On se réveille en retard pour le travail et pas le temps de se laver les cheveux. Ou encore, on se lève le matin en pensant ''pas besoin de laver mes cheveux aujourd'hui, ils sont passables pour la journée et je les laverai demain!'', mais on sort de la douche, on se passe un coup de brosse dans la tignasse et on se rend bien compte que, finalement, on aurait dû se laver les cheveux. Oops!

Got your attention now? Good. Meet Batiste Dry Shampoo. Aka, the hair saver!
Maintenant que j'ai votre attention, je vous présente le Shampoing Sec Batiste. Surnommé aussi mon ''hair saver'' pour avoir sauvé, non pas ma face, mais bien mes cheveux en plusieurs occasions!

I have lost count of how many cans I have gone through in this household. My teenage daughters can't live without it.
J'ai perdu compte de combien de bouteilles de Shampoing Sec Batiste j'ai acheté. Mes deux ados en sont accros!

Don't know what a dry shampoo is or how it works? Here's what Batiste tells us:
Vous ne savez pas ce qu'est un shampoing sec ou comment ça fonctionne? Allons voir ce que Batiste nous dit:

The ultimate multi-tasker. Just spray into roots, massage into hair, brush and style! Batiste Dry Shampoo banishes oily roots, giving dull, lifeless hair the makeover it needs without any water. It revitalises hair, adds body and texture and leaves hair feeling clean and fresh.

L'ultime produit multi-action pour les cheveux. Simplement appliquer sur les racines, masser dans la chevelure, brosser et coiffer! Le shampoing sec Batiste élimine les racines huileuses, donnant aux cheveux ternes et sans vie la mise en plis dont ils ont besoin, et ce sans eau. Revitalise, donne du corps et de la texture et laisse les cheveux propres et frais.

If you have never tried a dry shampoo before, do. And then come back here and thank me. It's such a lifesaver on mornings when time is short. It's also perfect to take with you on vacation for reviving beach or hat hair.
Si vous n'avez jamais essayé de shampoing sec, mettez ce produit sur le banc d'essai. Ensuite, revenez ici me dire merci! C'est un essentiel pour les matins pressés. Super pratique en vacances aussi pour donner un souffle de vie aux cheveux ayant été cachés sous un chapeau toute la journée ou après avoir passer la journée à la plage.

China Glaze Real Nail Polish Appliqués/Auto-collants pour Ongles - Seeing Stripes

Today I have something fun from Nail Polish Canada to show you. China Glaze Nail Apps. This is the design I had the chance to try, called Seeing Stripes in Blue.

Aujourd'hui, je vous présente quelque chose de pas mal cool du site Nail Polish Canada (à noter: pas de versant en français sur le site mais il est tout de même très facile à naviguer). Le design que j'ai eu la chance d'essayer s'appelle ''Seeing Stripes-Bleu''.

Made from real nail lacquer China Glaze nail apps combine the ease of a decal with the beauty and art of a salon manicure. Each pack contains 16 pieces and is good for one application with a few leftover pieces to account of varying nail sizes.

Fait de véritable vernis China Glaze, les auto-collants combinent la facilité d'application d'un décalque avec la beauté et l'art d'une manucure de salon. Chaque paquet contient 16 bandes auto-collantes (1 application avec quelques auto-collants en extra pour offrir un plus grand choix de grandeurs dans l'emballage).
SRP $11.00

The package contains the nail polish strips, one nail files, one rosewood stick and an instruction booklet. 
Even though the information provided were complete and clear, I still had some difficulties applying these (or maybe I just wasn't caffeinated enough!?). Just press on, and file off the excess. Then apply a top coat. 

L'emballage contient les bandes auto-collantes, une lime à ongle, un repousse-cuticules en bois de rose et un livret d'instructions. Bien que les instructions étant bien détaillées et complètes, j'ai tout de même eu de la difficulté à appliquer les ''Nail Apps'' de China Glaze (ou peut-être que je n'avais pas assez bu de café?!). Méthode d'application assez simple pourtant: Appliquer sur l'ongle et limer ce qui dépasse au bout de l'ongle. Ensuite, une couche de top coat.

Ta da! Here's the result/Voilà le résultat:

Small problem I encountered, and you can see it on the pic above, is that the strips pulled back a little after a few minutes (see pinky finger where it's more apparent). My advice: don't pull too much on the strips when applying them. Simply press onto the nail and smooth out toward the edges.

Un petit problème que j'ai rencontré, et vous pouvez le voir sur la photo ci-dessus; les bandes auto-collantes ont ''refoulées'' au bout de l'ongle un peu (voir mon petit doigt où c'est plus apparent. Mon conseil: ne pas trop tirer en appliquant les bandes. Il suffit de coller les bandes et de bien lisser l'auto-collant pour éviter les plis et/ou bulles d'air.

Final thoughts:
These were really fun! I love the design as it's not something I could have done with nail polish only. At $11.00 for one use, I do find them to be on the pricey side a little. Also, why include 16 strips? Granted, different nail sizes are included, but I would rather have the option to purchase a kit for small nail beds (or medium or wide nail beds, you get the point) that would include 20 nail strips and pay a few more dollars (15$ for 20 strips so you get to have two tries out of one package)? Something to think about China Glaze!

Mot final:
Je les trouve vraiment amusantes et le design n'est pas quelque chose que j'aurais pû faire à main levée avec des vernis à ongles. Mais, je trouve que 11.00$ pour un usage unique est un peu cher. Et pourquoi inclure 16 bandes?? Oui, avoir l'option de plusieurs grandeurs pour assurer un bon ''fit'' est bien mais dans ce cas, pourquoi ne pas offrir l'emballage en différentes grandeurs (pour petits ongles, moyens ou ongles plus larges?) et inclure non pas 16 mais 20 bandes? Dans ce cas, on en aurait pour deux manucures. Au lieu de payer 11$, on monte le prix à 15$. Juste une petite suggestion China Glaze! ;)

Thanks Nail Polish Canada for sending these over! I really like how they turned out. ;)
Un grand merci à Nail Polish Canada de m'avoir envoyé le design ''Seeing Stripes''. Ils sont jolis non?
