review: fresh rose face mask

fresh_rose face mask

I love a good face mask so when a sample of Fresh’s Rose Face Mask landed on my desk I wasted no time in trying it out. Fresh promises that this mask will hydrate and tone the complexion to restore radiance and suppleness to all skin types.

Meant to be applied after cleansing your face, the first thing I noticed was how cooling the formula was. Infused with real rose petals, they practically melt onto your skin as you massage it in. I love using this in the morning, after a shower, while getting ready for work. It really does hydrate the skin and I wish I had this during the winter when my skin was just suffering. It smells like roses but isn’t overwhelming or “mature” like some rose scented products. Overall, I’m impressed and loving this mask.

Fresh Rose Face Mask is available at Fresh locations, online, and at Sephora.


PREVIEW: M·A·C Giambattista Valli Collection

Pictures of the M·A·C and Giambattista Valli collection just hit my inbox and it’s too beautiful not to share!
MAC and Giambattista Valli
Fashion designer Giambattista Valli brings his effortless elegance and luxurious celebration of the female form to a stunning collection of timeless lipsticks. There are a total of five lipsticks and one gloss, each housed in a beautiful shade which corresponds with the color inside. 
MAC and Giambattista Valli CollectionM·A·C and Giambattista Valli have been working together for almost 10 years ago so it was only fitting for them to create a one- of-a-kind collector’s edition!

Why focus solely on lip products for the collection? “Lipstick can revolutionize a woman’s look. A lipstick shade or texture can radically change the way you are feeling in the moment. Makeup not only completes a look, it often makes the look,” said the designer. “I love the idea of dressing up your lips in couture colors. The matte, highly pigmented shades are very modern and contemporary for a daytime look and then you can add a touch of the lip glaze over the top for a more sophisticated evening look.”
MAC Giambattista Valli CollectionThe lipsticks retail for $17.50 USD ($21.00 CAD) and are:

  • Bianca B: a pale white-pink (matte)
  • Tats: a bright hot pink (matte)
  • Margherita: a yellow bright peach (matte)
  • Charlotte: a rich yellow-red (matte)
  • Eugenie: a dark cherry with blue undertone (matte)

There’s also a Crystal Glaze Gloss ($23/ $27.50) in Lena, a clear with subtly multicolored pearl.

I haven’t received any samples so I can’t comment on wear and pigmentation but M·A·C’s matte lipsticks rarely fail me (especially their newest formulations).

The M·A·C Giambattista Valli collection is available in-store July 9, 2015 through August 2015.
