 Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish loose powder and Givenchy Prisme Visage Perfecting Face Powder are my favorite makeup products from this brand. I'm not a person who loves loose powders because of their messiness and I was not sure it was a good decision to buy this Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish loose powder but I'm so glad I did.

What is Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish
 loose powder and what it does:

This is a universal, transparent loose finishing powder for the face that imparts radiant complexion throughout the day.
This transparent, featherlike, superfine loose finishing powder applies completely sheer, and gives skin an even, matte, and naturally radiant complexion. It feels absolutely luxurious from the moment you open its gorgeous black enamel case to the minutes you apply it with its microfiber powder puff on your skin.
Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish loose powder is really superfine that has a very pleasant smell. I usually apply it over my liquid foundation and it gives my skin natural, airbrushed finish. The only downside is that it's not the best option for traveling. 

This takes me to my another favorite Givenchy powder that is great for travelling since it's a pressed powder and as a bonus, you can  also color correct and highlight your skin.


What is Givenchy Prisme Visage Perfecting Face Powder 
and what it does:


This is a mattifying, ultra-fine, and smooth pressed powder that's formulated with silk proteins in a harmony of four complimentary shades to perfect the complexion.

Givenchy Prisme Visage Perfecting Face Powder comes in different shades for different skin tones that is great. Its pigments are blended with mica powder for added luminosity, and a blurring ingredient smooths the skin and reduces the look of blemishes. It also includes a beleved brush for a flawless application. I'm personally not a big fan of this brush, but the powder itself is great.
I bought it shade Satin Ivoire which suppose to create a luminous effect on light skin tones but you can get in a few shades, including Mousseline Pastel for color correction. You can use each shade of four-shade pressed powder separately or together.


To sum up my thoughts:

Fall is the perfect time to try new, warmer-tone perfumes after light scents that most of the time accompanies Summer days. If you are in the middle of searching your new signature perfume for this Fall I have a few suggestions for you (but this is not a sponsored post, it doesn't contain any affiliate links either.) 
It would be hard to choose just one favorite because I love all of them, it just depends on my mood and outfit of the day, which one of these perfumes I wear each day.

Burberry "My Burberry"

Inspired by the trench coat of the Burberry brand, "My Burberry" captures the fragrance of a London garden after the rain. Its contemporary floral scent features a delicate heart of rose woven with an unexpected touch of geranium leaf.


 Top notes: __  sweet pea, bergamot
                                        Middle notes: _ geranium, golden quince, freesia

                                        Base notes: __  patchouli, damask, centifolia roses

 It's a fresh, soft floral, a bit powdery and someway unisex scent of "My Burberry" that makes this fragrance so special to me. Even though it lasts only up to 6-7 hours, "My Burberry" has become one of my very favorite fragrances. 

The flacon is stunning __ it's made of glass with a stopper inspired by the bottom of a Burberry trench coat and how cute this ribbon is, that is made of the same fabric as the Burberry trench.


Burberry "My Burberry Black"

If you liked how the previous perfume sounded but didnt like its lasting power, then this "My Burberry Black" is for you because it lasts longer than original "My Burberry" and it smels as amazing as the previous one. This is a warm, floral and intimate fragrance that can be worn in chilly days and even better _ for your next night out because it is sexy but not overwelming.



As Burberry describes, "My Burberry Black" fuses the scent of sun-drenched Jasmine flower and Peach nectar with a sensual touch of Rose. The iconic Rose note at the heart of My Burberry fragrances is given a sweet and inviting candied twist while rich Amber Patchouli rounds out the scent for a deep and captivating finish.

Notes:

Peach Nectar, Sun-Drenched Jasmine
Candied Rose and Amber Patchouli

I like that My Burberry Black has a spicy scent but soft spicy, nothing annoying in it, with deep Amber Patchouli tones that can for sure make you stand out wherever you go. 
Some people might call this fragrance masculin but I would call it bold, it's a bold scent but not overwhelming. 
The bottle is almost same as My Burberry, just in a darker tone with the same cute ribon on the cap. Lasting power is amazing, you don't even need to re-apply it during a day or night.   



Bottega Veneta "Bottega Veneta"

This perfume has very sensual and intriguing scent __ it's little bit floral, with more spicy and dry, woody notes. You can feel leathery undertones throughout a day as well.





"Bottega Veneta" is not a typical feminine perfume __ it's a unique mix of spicy, leather and floral notes that can change your mood right after you apply it and yes, wearing this parfume, you can definitely make a statement. 


Dior "Miss Dior"


Warm, Sweet, Floral __ that's how I would describe this Dior "Miss Dior" Eau de Parfum in three words. If you love sweet scents you may enjoy wearing this perfume. 

Key Notes: 

Rosewood, Bergamot and Grasse Rose.



In the heart of the fragrance, the fresh, sensual beauty of the Grasse rose combines with the boldness of Damascus rose. They are woven with Calabrian bergamot, vivid rosewood from French Guiana, and pink pepper from Reunion Island. You can smell sweet notes with the pink pepper and orange at beginning but it settles into powdery roses and blossoms.


Lancome "Hypnose"

"Hypnose" is a sweet, elegant and feminine, kind of cozy fragrance with its low note of passion flower and violet, mid notes of vanilla and jasmine and top notes of amber and woods. It's not overwelming but definitely outstanding. 
The bottle of this fragrance is so luxurious, evocative of a woman's silhouette. There is something about this fragrance that makes you feel very special.

Two weeks ago, we decided to take a road trip to Canada. Since we are only few hours away from the Canadian border, we decided to use this opportunity and visited Montreal and Quebec City.

Quebec City,Chateau Frontenac , travel to Canada
Chateau Frontenac __ holds a Guinness World Record of "the most photographed hotel in the world"


Once we got to Montreal, we stopped by downtown Montreal to see Barbi Expo first. It's a free exhibit in one of the upscale malls in Montreal that is the largest permanent exhibit of Barbie dolls in the world.

It was absolutely amazing experience __ there were over thousand barbies __ from entertainment industry barbies to movie characters and personalities to fashionista barbies,  dressed by leading fashion houses, including Burberry, Prada, Balenciaga and also, barbies dressed in different national costumes from all over the world. (If you follow me on Instagram you should have seen it in my InstaStories.)
After that, we went to The Westin Montreal __ luxurious hote, located in Old Montreal.

Unfortunately, the hotel didn't impress us, to say the least. When we got to our room, you could see stains all over the floor and the bed sheets were covering the mattrass only half way__ something that you never expect from the hotel that charges you more than $300 a night (?!). In the end, they offered us a new room, cleaner than first room, but overall, it was not the hotel that would ever make us want to visit Westin hotels  again, unless it's Westin Rome in Rome, Italy, that we stayed in, two years ago, and it was so spectacular, we just didn't want to leave.

Anyways, moving to a different, cleaner room took some extra time so by the time we were ready to explore Montreal, it was already late evening. We strolled down the street towards Place D'Armes and Notre-Dame Basilica, in Old Montreal, and at that point, all we wanted was to find a place where we could have dinner.
Near Notre-Dame Basilica, we found a cute Italian restaurant where we had nice dinner and after getting some coffee, (and dessert for my daughter,) we were ready to go back to hotel and rest.

Next morning, after a quick breakfast at the hotel, we drove to Quebec City and spent all day there.

It was very charming and beautiful. Even though it rained couple of times while were there, it didn't ruin our mood, eating some gelato in cafe and getting some souvenirs must have helped us not to worry about rain, haha.

We visited  a few must-see places that I am going to write about in a different post, but for now, let me tell you that Quebec City was so amazing, we decided to go back next summer and stay longer.
Late night, we drove back to Montreal and went straight to the hotel.
Next morning, after quick breakfast, we drove around the city, took some pictures, ate lunch and left Montreal.

After 4-hour of driving, on the way we stopped by cute small town in New York state and found the small charming place to have early dinner.

First thing that will come to your mind when you think about Tiffany&Co. is classic, beautiful, sophisticated  jewelry but did you know that Tiffani&Co. also has some amazing fragrances? __ I didn't , honestly.. until I didn't receive this gift set from my husband. 
I remember, first few minutes of disappoint because I usually expect perfumes from my all-time favorite brands like Burberry, Dior, Chanel and etc, but after I sprayed it on my wrist I loved the scent.



Top note: Vert de Mandarine
Middle note: Blue Iris
Base note: Patchouli, Musk


Fresh, classic and sophisticated __ that's how I would describe this Tiffany&Co. Eau de Parfum in three words. This is a radiant and modern scent that opens with vibrant top notes of vert de mandarine. At its heart, the signature ingredient _ iris flower _ adds femininity. It dries down on the skin with warm nuances of patchouli and gentle musky notes, but I barely smell these notes on my skin.
This sparkling floral musk fragrance is designed around the noble iris, a flower _ associated with Tiffany as a recurring motif in its jewelry designs.
As for longetivity, it lasts almost all day on me so I'm I have nothing to complain about.




This fragrance can be worn any season of the year, including summer, since its not overwhelming scent. It's slightly floral with slight sweetness and freshness.
This perfume git set includes a full size (2.5 FL Oz) and travel size perfumes and comes in the signature Tiffany&Co. Blue Box. Just like the scent itself, the bottle is also simple and classic. The crystal bottle recalls the iconic Tiffany Yellow Diamond cut and inside the bottle you can see a delicate juice with the slightest tint of blue. 

Have you had Tiffany&Co. perfumes yet? How you liked them? Let me know in the comments below.

If you are looking for a new moisturizer to add to your daily skincare routine, here are few options you can consider. I have used quite many moistturizers from Estee Lauder over the years and here are the ones that I liked the most:

Estee Lauder "Verite Moisture Relief Creme"

Let me start from the best of the best _ "Verite Moisture Relief Creme". This alcohol-free and fragrance-free moisturizer is for truly sensitive skin. It contains special anti-irritants that help reduce the appearance of redness _ common to sensitive skin. The formula is free of common allergens and created without harsh emulsifiers.




 Estee Lauder "Verite Moisture Relief Creme" is the most soothing, gentle moisturizer I have ever used. It was the only cream that didn't irritate my sensitive skin that was covered with red rash from an allergic reaction to one of my shampoos, back then. Of course, I could name many other moisturizers that could moisture my skin longer than "Verite Moisture Relief Creme" but when my skin was in its worst condition this was the only product that helped my skin to be moisturized without irritating already irritated skin. 
The lightweight formula feels luxurious when you apply on your skin and absorbs quickly while leaving the skin smooth and hydrated. So, if you have very sentitve skin or your skin is extremly irritated for whatever reason, you should feel safe to use this moisturizer.


Estee Lauder "Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme"

If you looking for a moisturizer with SPF support, you can check out Estee Lauder "Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme" . This is a high-performance moisturizer for normal to combination skin. This cream not only moisturizes the skin for up to 24 hours but also reduces the first visible signs of aging, like dulness and fine lines. It has SPF15 to help you stay safe agains sun rays. The only thing you should keep in mind is that it is slightly scented, but nothing that can bother too much.




Estee Lauder "Hydrationist" Maximum Moisture Creme

Another great product from  Estee Lauder __ "Hydrationist" Maximum Moisture Creme. This is a lightweight moisturizer that absorbs quickly and leaves the skin feel amazing. It is slightly scented but to the point that never borthered me when I used use this cream. "Hydrationist" is perfect under makeup as well. The only thing is that it doesn't contain SPF so you will need to apply sunscreen after this moisturizer.




Edited: After I published this post I found out that unfortunately, "Hydrationist" Maximum Moisture Creme has discontinued. 

Thanks for reading lovelies.

The best Estee Lauder moisturizers I have used

If you are looking for a new moisturizer to add to your daily skincare routine, here are few options you can consider. I have used quite many moistturizers from Estee Lauder over the years and here are the ones that I liked the most:

Estee Lauder "Verite Moisture Relief Creme"

Let me start from the best of the best _ "Verite Moisture Relief Creme". This alcohol-free and fragrance-free moisturizer is for truly sensitive skin. It contains special anti-irritants that help reduce the appearance of redness _ common to sensitive skin. The formula is free of common allergens and created without harsh emulsifiers.




 Estee Lauder "Verite Moisture Relief Creme" is the most soothing, gentle moisturizer I have ever used. It was the only cream that didn't irritate my sensitive skin that was covered with red rash from an allergic reaction to one of my shampoos, back then. Of course, I could name many other moisturizers that could moisture my skin longer than "Verite Moisture Relief Creme" but when my skin was in its worst condition this was the only product that helped my skin to be moisturized without irritating already irritated skin. 
The lightweight formula feels luxurious when you apply on your skin and absorbs quickly while leaving the skin smooth and hydrated. So, if you have very sentitve skin or your skin is extremly irritated for whatever reason, you should feel safe to use this moisturizer.


Estee Lauder "Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme"

If you looking for a moisturizer with SPF support, you can check out Estee Lauder "Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme" . This is a high-performance moisturizer for normal to combination skin. This cream not only moisturizes the skin for up to 24 hours but also reduces the first visible signs of aging, like dulness and fine lines. It has SPF15 to help you stay safe agains sun rays. The only thing you should keep in mind is that it is slightly scented, but nothing that can bother too much.

There are many things you can do on weekends in New York City but how about outside of city, have
you wondered how you could spend your weekend ? Here are few things you can consider when you are heading outside of your city:
 If shopping is something that can make your day, go to Weschester Mall in downtown White Plains, New York. This upscale mall has mid to high end stores and some of the major retailers like Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. There are plenty of comfortable sitting areas on every story and gorgeous decorations.

If you enjoy outside dining and people watching, you will enjoy going to Piermont, New york. It's a small village incorporated in Rockland County, New York, on the west side of the Hudson River, only 25 minutes away from the George Washington Bridge. Piermont, NY has a lot of restaurants and coffee shops with outside sitting areas, that gives this place very charming, European look.

If you don't mind to drive little further from NYC, you should visit Cold Spring, New York that is a village in the town of Philipstown, NY. Once you are in Cold Spring, make sure you go to Dockside Park __not only you will enjoy beautiful views on Hudson River but also, you may get treated with outdoor movies or live music. We went there this Sunday and enjoyed Live Music (check out my Instastories for more details __ HERE). Buy some delicious ice cream in the creamery across the street. And, you can not leave Cold Spring without strolling Main Street where you will find the cutest small shops.

If you have little kids and you are in Bergen County NJ, you can visit Bergen County Zoo in Paramus NJ, your little ones will love there even though it's a small zoo. The best ting is that it has a train and  also, you can purchase a food stick for birds for $1 and feed them. For my daughter that was the best part of her Bergen County Zoo experience .

 Today I want to show you guys a few products I've recently bought at Sephora and that I desperately needed, especially this Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant ($29) that I had purchased few times in the past and lip products. I picked up this gorgeous DIOR ADDICT "Lacquer Stick ($37) in #202 "Stargirl" and MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour ($22) in color "Dance All Night."

I also bought Stilla "Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner" ($22) because they didn't have in the store my favorite Sephora eyeliner but I'm happy with this Stilla eyeliner too, it's got a thin tip that helps me create a clean line, it's waterproof and bold black.

I also bought this Caudalie Energizing and smoothing eye cream ($39) that is a fragrance-free anti-wrinkle eye treatment to combat fine lines, puffiness, and dehydration. I like that it comes in a tube that is a great hygienic option and it contains Vitamin C to support collagen around delicate skin. 

Have you used any of these products? Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading, and make sure to come back on Wednesday.

 Long gone those days when I used to wear matt finish makeup on my face and loved it. In recent years, I started to appreciate glowing skin more, whether I get it from skincare or makeup products. When I saw Tatcha Luminous Dewy Mist ($48) in  this beautiful bottle, that was claiming that my skin would get that luminous glowing look, I knew, I had to have it.



What is Tatcha Luminous Dewy Mist:

This mist is a silky, fine mist moisturizer for a boost of soothing hydration and a luminous complexion. It is formulated with more than 20 percent botanical oils to leave skin dewy. It is also infused with anti-aging complex, Japanese anti-aging super-foods __ Green Tea, Rice And Algae that restores the look of youthful radiance.


                                                  How to use Tatcha Luminous Dewy Mist:

As the label claims, the Dewy Skin Mist's super-fine spayer only takes two to three spritzes for your whole face but in reality, you will end up spraying way more than that. You can use right before applying makeup for flawless application and dewy, glowing look, or you can mist it over makeup you replenish moisture and prevent caking.




I love the idea of applying this mist over makeup to give the finish that glow, but unfortunately, I can't apply it over my makeup because, for some reason, this mist gets clogged or something, it starts leaking and the spray is never even. The product leaves oily blotches that have to be blend out after application otherwise it's noticeable  on the skin. Once I blend it out, the finish is absolutely beautiful.

Overall, it's a great mist for glowing skin, I also like the fact that it doesn't contain harmful ingredients,  but the application process makes me realise that I will not be repurchasing it in future.

Have you used this mist yet? Let me know how it worked for you.
