Review + Swatches: Cirque Vice 2017 Nail Polish Collection

Cirque Vice 2017 Summer Collection 2

If you’re not in the summer mood yet, wait until you see what Cirque Colors has in store for this season. With its vibrant shades, pops of neon, and holographic glimmer, the Cirque Colours Vice 2017 Nail Polish Collection* captures the colourful energy of summer.

Speaking of summer, mine has been busy. In fact, I got salon gel manicures in June and July because I didn’t have time to paint my own nails. So, when my friends over at Nail Polish Canada asked if I wanted to try out the Vice Collection, I couldn’t wait. The whole swatching experience was incredibly refreshing and reminded me of how much I love painting my nails and trying new polishes.

Read on for my review and swatches of the Vice Collection.

Review: Sothys Paris Instant Energizing Corrector (EE Cream)

Sothys Paris Instant Energizing Corrector EE Cream Review 1

So far, I have reviewed seasonal makeup collections and serums from Sothys Paris (you can read my reviews of these products in the Makeup Reviews and Skincare Reviews sections on my blog). Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on the Instant Energizing Corrector*, a product that is a makeup/skincare hybrid.

If you are unfamiliar with Sothys, it is an avant-garde beauty expert that produces products sold exclusively in beauty institutes and spas. This highly specialized brand has an extraordinary commitment to research and innovation, which is shown through its innovative line of luxurious skin and body care.

As the latest generation of Energy Enhancer (EE) cream, the Instant Energizing Corrector is a true representation of the company’s dedication to creating beauty advances. It contains encapsulated pigments to instantly target and correct visible imperfections while transforming during application to adapt to all skin tones.
