NEW Dermalogica PowerBright TRx

Well, well, well… It’s always nice to know that a Hollywood actor like Ryan Gosseling uses the same Dermalogica products that I treat my skin to every day!

Ryan Gosling was showing some love to Dermalogica’s best-selling daily Microfoliant, but the brand’s latest skincare launch was the true star of this exclusive event held at the beautiful Dermalogica location on McGill Street in Old-Montreal last month.

Full review of the amazing PowerBright TRx product line to come soon!

New Leyla Milani Give It To Me Straight Professional Ceramic Flat Iron & Miracle Brush
Simply put, the Leyla Milani Give It To Me Straight Professional Ceramic Flat Iron is the best ceramic flat iron I’ve tried, and that’s coming from a haircare addict who only uses the best salon tools.
My hair is naturally thick and curly, but I prefer wearing it straight most of the time, which means that I blow-dry it and follow with a flat iron to straighten my long hair to perfection.
With other professional ceramic irons that I’ve tried and won’t name, the process was a chore that I couldn’t wait to be done. Most professional irons may heat up quickly and do the job well, but they are quite often heavy and leave hair feeling dry and damaged.
So imagine my surprise when I picked up the Leyla Milani Professional Ceramic Iron and discovered the lightest, most efficient flat iron I’ve ever had the pleasure of using on my waist length hair! 
Not only does it perfectly straighten sections of hair like it’s supposed to – quickly and effortlessly – this luxurious styling tool from Beverly Hills, California, has the most coveted feature in powerful professional salon tools: dual voltage. Finally, a professional, high quality flat iron that leaves hair impeccably straight and shiny, and works anywhere in the world! 
I couldn’t be happier about this flat iron and all Leyla Milani haircare products, namely the brand’s best-selling Miracle brush pictured above (twice)! Specifically designed for long, full hair that tangles easily, the Leyla Milani Miracle Brush, $20, beautifully smoothes and detangles your hair without pulling, reduces static and boosts shine all in one step.
This boar and nylon bristle paddle brush is simply perfect for detangling tough hair and is great for all hair types. Its smooth, no-slip satin finish handles feel great in your hand while the bristles feel great on your scalp, and enhance natural shine and volume.

New Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance Makeup & Pure Color Nail Lacquer
This Fall, Estée Lauder introduces what the brand claims to be the world’s most luxurious liquid makeup – Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance foundation – and upon trying on the product, I have no choice but to back up that statement. Re-Nutriv’s breakthrough formula works by sending light streaming through a prism of precious micro-fine gems for a flawless finish and unprecedented radiance.
A drop or two of Re-Nutriv foundation, applied with a foundation brush of the finger tips is all it takes for skin to look noticeably fresher and more vibrant. The silky smooth and moisturizing formula includes patented anti-aging technologies with vitamins and anti-oxidants that nourish skin all day long, leaving skin healthier and more luminous over time.
Ideal for any skin type, this long-wearing, color-true foundation is one of the best I’ve tried and would highly recommend it for daily wear because of its staying power and skin-saving benefits.
Re-Nutriv helps even skintone from within and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Imperfections are instantly covered by to the highly pigmented formula, and quickly fade at the cellular level thanks to Re-Nutriv’s corrective action, resulting in a naturally youthful look.
Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance Makeup, $100, is available now at Estée Lauder counters everywhere.
Pure Color Nail Lacquer, $30
The Fall-Winter 2014 Estée Lauder nail polish collection has definitely surprised me in terms of quality and cool effects. For instance, this seemingly classic nude shade is anything but boring. It dries on matte and slightly greyish, which adds an interesting touch to an all-black outfit. Estée Lauder’s Pure Colour nail polish self-levels for a flawless application every time, dries quickly and lasts so long without chipping that you no longer have an excuse to go out without perfectly manicured hands. Even the busiest women have 5 minutes once a week to do their nails! 
With a plethora of beautiful shades and a high quality formula, Pure Color is the nail polish discovery of Fall 2014.
