The application of the products is very easy and smooth on the skin which allows for buildable coverage allowing you to create a daytime look for the office and a night-time look for a night out in town.

* Beauty Tip - If you love bronzers all year long, I would also recommend trying out the Lise Watier "Havana Bronzing Powder", it lasts all day long and provides a beautiful natural glow throughout every season of the year. This product is also a winner for a second year in a row of the 20th Elle Quebec & Elle Canada Beauty Grand Prix Awards.

Luscious Lips created with Lise Watier Luxoil Lipstick





Cat eye created with Lise Watier Dramatique Gel Eyeliner Ultra Noir








As a make-up base to get this look, I applied a layer of  Lise Watier CC Creme SPF25 in Light Neutral.

What I like about this CC Cream is that it is a light-weight color corrector that provides both hydration for a dewy looking skin and prevents skin aging and pigmentation against sun exposure and free radicals.

Over that, I applied the Lumistick Highlighter in Pearl over the cheekbone area and T-zone. I finished off by lightly dusting on all over the face and neck the Luxotika Bronzing Powder to give me a natural summer sun-kissed look.

For the cat-eye look I used the Dramatique Gel Liner in Ultra Noir which is water resistant and it sure does stay on for hours without smudging or running over the eyelids.

I love doing a smokey-eye but I also like to tone it down with a mix of warm and neutral eyeshadow shades if I want my eyeliner to be the focus point of my eyes. With this Luxotika 5-Colour Eyeshadow Palette you can create both a day and night time beauty look and also highlight any other eye makeup around the eye and eyebrow areas.

For the lips I chose the Luxoil Lipstick in Voyage, this product feels amazing while you have it on. It has a light feel on the lips with lots of shine and sheer coverage. It also contains natural plant oils and Vitamin E making this lipstick a very hydrating and nourishing lip treatment throughout the day.

3-step Beauty Care system for luscious kissable lips for Valentine's Day!

3-step Beauty Care system to treat dehydrated, dry lips.


With Valentine's just around the corner and this cold weather we are currently experiencing in Toronto, I would like to share with you some skincare products and beauty tips that will help you treat chapped, dry lips and also give you fuller looking lips for the perfect sexy pout.

 EXFOLIATION
 Just like the rest of the face and body, regular and proper lip exfoliation is needed to help remove dead skin cells from the surface of the lips.

LISE WATIER Sensational Kiss is a gentle sugar exfoliating balm, enriched with Shea Butter, Panthenol and Vitamin E. #Parabenfree #exfoliation 

*Retail Price: $23.00

 FACE/LIP MASK
 The benefits of using a skin hydrating mask 1-3 times per week is essential mainly for adding and locking in skin hydration. All skin types can certainly benefit from doing this as part of their skin care regime and the product can also be applied around the eye area, lips, neck and chest to address any skin concerns such as dryness, fine lines and dehydrated skin.

AVENE Soothing Moisture Mask is a rich mix of thermal spring water and nourishing safflower oil that provides immediate relief and hydration to upper layers of the skin. I highly recommend this mask if you are experiencing extreme skin dryness, irritation and redness due to cold weather conditions and over-exfoliated skin. #Parabenfree #mask

*Retail Price: $37.95


 LIP TREATMENT
If the skin's barrier is temporarily impaired and damaged, proper care and treatment is necessary to bring it back to a healthy state. In the case of chapped and dry lips, you also need to use daily a good quality ingredient lip balm. There are a variety of lip balms and treatments in the market that offer multiple healing and repairing benefits including safe lip-plumping properties.

NEOSTRATA Anti-Wrinkle Lip Enhancer contains peptides and Vitamins A & B3 to help increase lip volume due to aging. This lip product also provides long lasting moisturizing benefits and shine without feeling sticky or drying out the lips. Can be used safely a few times a day. #antiaging #lipplumper

*Retail Price: $39.00


LISE WATIER Spa Fondant Moisturizing Lip Therapy is rich with moisturizing Vitamin E and Shea Butter ingredients for ultra-hydrating benefits and "Maxi-Lip complex" provides anti-aging properties that add volume to the lips and refine the lip contour. This is also another great lip treatment product that provides natural shine and a healthy look to the lips. #parabenfree #antiaging

* Retail Price: $22.00

Wishing You a Happy Valentine's Day with lots of Love & Happiness!

AS SEEN ON TV at ROGERS TV - FILORGA ANTI-AGING MOISTURIZERS OFFER BOTOX LIKE RESULTS IN A JAR.

FILORGA - shopping counter at Holt Renfrew Center in Bloor-Yorkville. 



This counter is beautifully designed and arranged in a way that each skincare product system is displayed in a fashionable manner. The counter also carries the skincare line called; "Skin Perfusion" which is the one that is used inside the treatment room to perform the anti-aging skin treatments. 

At the end of my facial, I received a goodie-bag with a 1 week supply of three anti-wrinkle treatments along with a 20ml sample of MESO+ Absolute wrinkle serum. 

Thank you to the Beauty Advisor, Renee for an amazing experience and gift. She can be reached for more information about any FILORGA product lines and skin treatment bookings at; Tel: 416-922-2333 (ext.21322)

Cryotherapy Treatment

I am a truly advocate of getting monthly skin care treatments since one single treatment can make such a difference on the way your skin looks and feels and have a big impact on your overall well-being. Most spa skin treatments include a face, neck and shoulder massage which helps alleviate muscle tension, relieve stress giving you a more relaxed, youthful and radiant appearance. 



The treatment I received by the lovely esthetician, started out with a thorough product explanation of the line of products that are used during the treatment. 

SKIN PERFUSION serums are massaged into the skin by using a "cryolift" machine to further the penetration of the serums into deeper layers of the skin with the aim to target and correct specific skin conditions such as wrinkles, fine lines, dry skin and brown spots. While the serums are being infused into the skin, there is a cooling effect on the skin's surface which stimulates circulation and helps to detoxify the skin from within for a more radiant and healthy looking skin. Each treatment is customized and layered with a combination of 5 different Professional Skin Perfusion serums available to suit the client's needs and specific concerns.

As part of the anti-aging skin treatment, there is also an application of a skin hydrating masque that adds extra hydration to the skin's surface and also furthers penetration of the serums application into deeper layers of the sk
in. 


Hydrating Masque 






FILORGA UNVEILS INNOVATIVE SKINCARE PRODUCTS 
NOW AVAILABLE IN CANADA
NUTRI-FILLER: day-time moisturizer. Retail Price: $95.00 for 50ml.
SKIN-ABSOLUTE: night-time moisturizer. Retail Price: $195.00 for 50ml.
RETAILERS: Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, Murale & Shoppers Drug Mart.


I received these products early this Fall and I am extremely happy with how the products perform on the skin. I am personally all about cream textures and  natural cosmetic scents. Both day and night-time FILORGA moisturizers contain Hyaluronic Acid and NCTF (New Cellular Treatment Factor) complex which mimics the same results of an aesthetic solution found in acid-based injectable products such as "fillers".  


For anyone looking for a "non-surgical" cosmetic anti-aging solution without the negative side-effects and downtime recovery, I highly recommend using both moisturizers. The best part is when you purchase any two FILORGA skincare products, you will receive a complimentary facial.  For more product information and treatment bookings, please contact Beauty Advisor Renee at Tel: (416) 922-2333 (ext.21322)



T.V BEAUTY CARE SEGMENT
