Most of "Beauty" lovers would know that Guerlain is the founder of bronzing powder!!!
But for those of you, who actually didn't hear about that - well-this year Guerlain is celebrating 30th Anniversary of Terracotta Bronzing Powder - introduced for the first time to the public in 1984!!

All I can say- Guerlain is really an expert when it comes to bronzing powder-offering such a wide selection of different types & shades - perfectly matching each skin tone&individual needs!!








This year - Guerlain is celebrating the Big Birthday:-) by welcoming another great product into the Terracota family - Terracotta Joli Teint - A formula that combines the perfecting power of foundation with the comfort of a beautifying texture, providing a radiant, healthy-looking finish. 

This lightweight formula gives skin an instant touch of summer, leaving behind a perfectly radiant glow. It contains nourishing natural ingredients which counter the visible effects of fatigue, reviving dull skin for an even complexion. Each shade is designed to work as a base prior to your Terracotta Bronzing Powder to create a flawless, customizable tan for every skin tone.
Available in 5 shades at Guerlain beauty counters across Canada!!! 



GUERLAIN'S HABIT ROUGE MENS FRAGRANCE WON PRIZE DURING FRENCH FIFI AWARDS* 2014!!!





Habit Rouge won the Mythical masculine Fragrance prize during the French FIFI Awards* 2014 this month!! 
A tribute to the very first oriental fragrance for men in perfumery created by Jean-Paul Guerlain in 1965.


Habit Rouge is a classic fragrance for men launched in 2003 as a reorchestrated version of the original fragrance from 1965.
 The composition is based on the harmony of fresh and intense citruses in the top (lime, orange and bergamot) and warm oriental balsamic notes in the base. The smoky and leathery nuances in the final notes are contrasting with the juicy beginning. The sophisticated heart is composed of flowers, precious woods with a warm touch of cinnamon.

DISCOVER BEAUTY WORLD WITH PINK CLINIC IN CALGARY!!!








Just recently, I had a chance to connect with Maria Wu - the owner of Pink Clinic in Calgary.
She invited me to see the place and learn more about the treatments they are offering.
Pink -  Permanent Ink Clinic - is located in beautiful "Keynote" building downtown.
Right after you enter - you can feel "modern touch" in the air -  the interior is simple yet welcoming-so is the clinic-located on the 5th floor. Very clean finish with lots of paintings-that was my personal impression of the space.





Pink - is not a typical clinic - it specializes in medical skin re-pigmentation, permanent cosmetics and skin camouflaging. With the expertise of Dr. Kirk Barber and Maria Wu (Micropigmentation Specialist) you can be sure to receive a gold standard care, where they use state of the art equipment.

For more information about specific treatments, please visit the website directly at: 

One of my main interests was to learn more about Latisse lash enhancement!!


 For those of you who never heard about it, LATISSE® is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, darker. It claims to see the results in about 8 weeks, so decided to give it a try and I am going to share with you my experiences with using the product (Thanks Maria!!!)!
Stay tuned!!!
