Thoughts: Power Fabric by Giorgio Armani

Anything skin coverage its Armani Beauty for me. I am a huge fan of their foundations  Luminous Silk, Maestro and Power Fabric Foundation. I have them all and I use each one on different days / occasions depening on the look I am going for. I love how airy they apply and yet provide the coverage I need without irritating my skin.

To be honest I do not wear concealer everyday, I like it when my skin is able to breathe. So I apply concealer on occassions or if I really look tired.

When I heard there was a Power Fabric Concealer coming out, I got so excited. I remember going to the Armani counter at Selfridges and I wanted to try it instantly. I was surprised at how AMAZING it looked and felt on my skin. I thought it was just in my mind but it actually enhanced the shape of my eye. SOLD.

My current shade is 5.5, it provides high coverage yet feel so light and breathable with a velvet finish. I sometimes apply it on bare skin and it still looks the same, stays for long hours, blends so easily and comfortably and does not cake at ALL.

It is honestly a concealer that does it all: conceals reddness, blemishes, dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines by providing a brightener fresh complexion.

The concealer comes in 20 different shades and its applicator allows for application over large and small areas using different techniques.

I find it to be average priced, 32 GBP which is not expensive but not cheap. Personally I really think its worth the price and it lasts a long time.

This product is a YES !!!

Farsali Volcanic Elixir – My Thoughts

I tried the first product of Farsali almost a year ago or so, few months after its release. I thought it was another beauty brand that just mixed a bunch of oils in a bottle and claimed it’s great for the skin. I was wrong, I loved it.

This time, I decided to try the Volcanic Elixir – and WOW.66950A7A-79EF-4C94-B8DD-7B73408BEF87

What this Oil is made of:

The oil is extracted from the nut kernels of the Tamanu fruit, which flourishes in the south pacific islands of Polynesia, due to the volcanic atmosphere. Volcanoes have a very good effect to the surrounding soil. The Volcanic ash contains minerals that are beneficial to plants and provide nutrients to the soil.

 

Benefits:

The properties in oil can help regenerate skin tissue. It also has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties, making it ideal for acne sufferers.
The Volcanic Elixir aids in regenerating new healthy skin. It can be used on acne and acne scars, dry and scaly skin, stretch marks, etc. The oil does have a strong scent (disappears few minutes after application).

 

Why I love It:

The Volcanic Elixir is a thick and heavy oil with a strong nutty aroma and yellow color. It is best to use this at night because of the strong scent and thickness of the oil. I either apply it before bed, or throughout the evening when I have a solid 2 hours at home. The thickness of the oil takes time to get absorbed and that is why you need to dedicate time for it.

I absolutely love the effect it had on my skin, it left my skin so soft and hydrated, sometimes I experience redness in my pores in my T-Zone area, but this oil manages to close the pores and reduce the oils that are extracted. I also have some scars and this oil also managed to reduce them, I’m in love with it.

Another plus is that I use a drop of oil on my lips, wait 30 minutes and then I apply a liquid lipstick, usually these lipsticks dry out your lips, so with this oil I don’t find any problems. If I feel my lips are still dry I re-apply the oil after I remove the lipstick.

Coconut, Sesame and Curry Leaves for your Hair.

I can’t even begin to say how much this mixture is amazing. It really does wonders.

Let me start with the benefits of this mixture and then I will add the recipe to this mixture at the very end. It is super simple, all you need is commitment.

Benefits of this Mixture for the Hair-

  • It repairs damaged hair roots by supplying essential nutrients to your hair and scalp.
  • Curry leaves contain beta-carotene as well as protein that reduces hair loss – drastically.
  • Antioxidants contained in curry leaves help revive dead hair follicles, stimulate them and promote hair growth.
  • Curry leaves contain Vitamin B which is helpful in restoring the natural color of your hair.
  • Prevents premature greying of hair and impart radiant texture to your hair.
  • Vitamin B6 contained in curry leaves act in an effective way to strengthen the hair.

. I managed to have my hair grow in less than a year, my hair is no longer dry have dry and feels heathy, soft and thick. So let’s do this 🙋🏻 Recipe for Coconut, Sesame and Curry Leaves 🍃 

  • 100ml – 100% Pure Coconut Oil
  • 100ml – Sesame Oil
  • Put on very slow gas. Add to this
  • 2 handfuls curry leaves 
  • Heat till just before curry leaves turns black.
  • Cool and Strain.

 Remove from flame, cool, strain and bottle. Apply on hair by massaging your scalp downwards to the ends of ur hair. Preferably to leave over night and shower in the morning, but you can wash it off after a minimum of 30 minutes. P.s smell goes away xK-003

How do I apply it – I usually do it 2 -3 times a week before my schedule for washing my hair, which is every 2-3 days. After preparing the mixture I start with applying it on my scalp, massaging it all around. I then add more of the mixture to start applying down my hair, from the roots all the way to the tips. Then, after I am sure I covered most of my hair with the oil I tie my hair up in a bun and wait for at least one hour before washing it.

Silk Foundation !! Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation has been voted as one of the best foundations out there, by celebrity makeup artists and from celebrity themseleves like Kim Kardashian.

dsc_0253This award-winning foundation is formulated with micro-fil technology, producing a low-density product that pairs high-impact pigments with weightless texture. Inspired by the silk shantung worn by kings and emperors, this foundation glides seamlessly onto the skin. It blends well and easily with all skin types, with no break outs.

“These products are directly inspired by the way I choose fabrics for my collections. They allow the natural glow of the skin to come through no matter how many layers you apply.”—Giorgio Armani, Fashion DesignerIMG_4167

TIP: When choosing foundation, never check the color match on your palm or face, the best way to pick a color fit is by applying the foundation on your neck.
