The Art Of Multimasking | L'Oreal Skin's Pure Clay Face Mask Trio - Purity, Detox, Glow | Review

The Art Of Multimasking | L'Oreal Skin's Pure Clay Face Mask Trio - Purity, Detox, Glow | Review | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

For the longest time, the words "affordable", "good quality" and "skincare" could not be found in the same sentence. Sure, you could find cleansers, moisturizers and treatments at drugstores but they often left much to be desired with ingredients and formulations that didn't prove as helpful as their more expensive counterparts. 

Thankfully, the last few years has seen a massive rise in quality and availability for skincare at a more affordable price. Brands like L'Oreal have been releasing incredible products that make skincare so much easier to handle but there was always one thing missing - masks! 

Face masks were practically non-existent at the drugstore but those days are now history thanks to L'Oreal's Pure Clay Face Mask Trio

The Art Of Multimasking | L'Oreal Skin's Pure Clay Face Mask Trio - Purity, Detox, Glow | Review | labellesirene.ca

L'Oreal is always way ahead of the game and it's no different when it comes to their skincare. They have harnessed the power of natural minerals and clays and paired them with genius formulas to bring you really high quality, sophisticated but affordable masks. 

The L'Oreal Skin Pure Clay Face Masks ($12.99 CAD/$9.99 USD) are designed to fill in the gap left in your skincare routine. Face masks are an absolutely essential part of your routine for they help to give your skin a break from the day-to-day and let it find a fresh start. 

This trio of masks (all sold separately) is designed to address all of your various skin concerns from clarity and dullness to clogged pores and dryness. They are formulated with 3 pure mineral clays and are then customized with different ingredients to deliver different benefits. They all feature Kaolin (to absorb impurities and excess sebum), Montmorillonite (to eliminate imperfections) and Ghassoul (to clarify). 

Each mask has it's own specific purpose, the green mask is to purify and mattify, the black is to detoxify and brighten and the red is to exfoliate and refine. They can each be used individually or all at once on different areas of the face to target specific needs. I love to use the green on my forehead, the black on my nose and chin and the red on my cheeks. 

The Art Of Multimasking | L'Oreal Skin's Pure Clay Face Mask Trio - Purity, Detox, Glow | Review | labellesirene.ca

The Purity Mask (green) is intended to work deep into the pores and get rid of dirt and grime while fighting blackheads, shine and oiliness. It features eucalyptus to help remove oil and leave you with soft, matte skin. This mask is best for oily skin. 

The Detox Mask (black) is a dupe for the original Glamglow mask. It includes active charcoal to act as a magnet to unclog pores and draw out impurities. It has a lovely creamy texture that cleanses skin's surface to leave it feeling ultra clean but not at all tight or dry. Your skin will not only feel great but it will be more even in tone and radiant. This mask is best for normal/combination skin. 

The Glow Mask (red) is a two in one product that acts as both a mask and a scrub. It has a creamy texture with tiny volcanic particles to exfoliate and illuminate as you scrub. It contains red algae which is known for it's brightening capabilities and antioxidant properties. The result of a mask application that is then scrubbed off is tighter looking pores, refined texture, super smooth skin and a bright, clear appearance. The mask is best for dull skin. 

Application Tip 

- apply to dry, clean skin
- apply in a thin layer covering well
- wait 10-15 minutes
- remove using circular motions to make the most of the exfoliation
- tone
- moisturize

The L'Oreal Pure Clay Masks are truly fantastic. They come in gorgeous, sophisticated glass jars, have a lovely fresh scent and pack a punch in formula. I love all three of them for their particular uses but I love to mix them all together and target my personal problem areas. 

I have been really happy with the result from each mask every time I have tried them and my skin is feeling pretty amazing. I would definitely recommend that you pick up at least one if not all three so you can try your hand at multimasking. 

The L'Oreal Pure Clay Masks are now available at your local drugstore.

Fair Skin Friendly | Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Bronzer For Face & Body | Review & Swatches

Fair Skin Friendly | Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Bronzer For Face & Body | Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

Summer might be coming to a close (who else can't wait for fall?) but that doesn't mean we want to lose our summer glow! The healthy golden gleam that we get to our skin during the summer not only looks beautiful but it helps us look healthier and more radiant. Then winter comes around and our skin tends to lose that life and become much more lacklustre and ghostly. 

 As a girl who has spent the majority of her life learning to accept her porcelain skin while envying that golden glow, I have gone through plenty of products trying to find the perfect happy medium. I want a bronzer that will add a bit of life to my complexion and a halo of warmth to my face but I also want my snow white skin to be able to show through. 

This is so much easier said than done and I think it's something we all struggle with, no matter our skin tone. Luckily, I have discovered the perfect bronzer, one that checks every box on my list and never makes me look orange or overdone. 

The Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Bronzer For Face & Body is a foolproof bronzer that gives you a naturally radiant glow and lasts for 12 hours. 

Fair Skin Friendly | Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Bronzer For Face & Body | Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

The Stila Stay All Bronzer ($47 CAD/$36 USD) is a serious blessing from the bronzer gods. It is a gorgeous golden sun that gives your skin the ultimate warm golden glow that always looks natural and seamless. 

Within a few applications it firmly took the top spot and became my favourite, go-to bronzer. In fact it has had so much love that there is a giant hole in the middle where I have worked my way down to the pan. 

Packaging

The Stay All Day Bronzer is another absolutely gorgeous release from Stila, it features their signature golden metallic-matte packaging with sleek lines and a slim profile. It is much larger than the average bronzer at 0.53oz while 0.28oz is standard. The large size not only means more product but it means it is much easier to get a big fluffy brush into the pan. The powder has the name Stila embossed into the centre and it is surrounded by sun rays but clearly I have used mine thoroughly. 

Fair Skin Friendly | Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Bronzer For Face & Body | Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Formula

The Stay All Day Bronzer is a lightweight, satin-matte bronzing powder that is intended to be used on both the face and body. It has an oil-free formula with patented high performance, fade-proof pigments that are uniquely coated to ensure superior wear, higher colour payoff and a softer texture. 

The lovely satin-matte finish gives it the ability to be utilized in a variety of ways, it can be used to sculpt and shape the face or to give an all over glow. The powder is not fully matte but not at all shimmery with no added glow apart from the gorgeous luminosity that seems to be built within every particle. It perfectly replicates the healthy looking glow that comes with a natural tan and the velvety texture means it melts into the skin so that no one will know you are even wearing makeup. 

The super smooth, almost creamy formula helps it blend seamlessly into the skin with no streaking, caking or blotchiness. It applies and blends effortlessly and truly looks like a second skin. 

Lasting Power

As part of Stila's infamous Stay All Day range, this bronzer is meant to withstand just about anything you can throw it's way and for extended periods of time. It is water resistant and the formula is designed to help it stick to the skin. 

Well, I can attest that it does indeed stay all day. I wear this bronzer every single day and some days last more than 12 hours, it never fades, transfers or melts away even on the hottest, sweatiest afternoons. 

Fair Skin Friendly | Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Bronzer For Face & Body | Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Shade Range

The Stay All Day Bronzer comes in 3 shades - Light, Medium and Dark - and I have the shade Light. It is literally the perfect shade for my fair skin and it is far better than any other bronzer I own. It has a warm base with enough neutral tones that it works on my complexion never looking even the slightest bit orange.

 I love that while it is incredibly pigmented, it has a slightly sheer quality that means you can never go overboard. You can apply as many layers as you want and it will always look natural, never fake. This quality also makes it fantastic for the body as you can add a bit of colour and dimension without looking like you have makeup on your arms or legs. 

Final Thoughts

I really cannot say enough good things about the Stila Stay All Day Bronzer For Face & Body. It is absolutely gorgeous in all aspects and the formula just can't be beat; it melts into the skin, blends flawlessly, looks natural, gives a lit from within glow and lasts for hours and hours. 

I will always recommend the Stay All Day Bronzer first and foremost and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words | Weekly Instagram Roundup #3


Hey Beauties! 

This week has been seriously crazy and I am so ready for the weekend. I have been working on a few upcoming projects that have kept me busy and then my fiancĂ© had a few health problems that meant we spent the night in the emergency room and our sleep schedules got completely turned upside down. 

This weekend is going to be jam packed with a shoot day tomorrow and my nephews 4th birthday party on Sunday. I can't believe he's growing up so fast, it's got to stop! 


This Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist is a thing of beauty! It's a setting spray that hydrates your skin while giving it a serious glow! 


One of my most recent purchases is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette and it is probably the most incredible palette I have ever used. Not only are the shadows really nicely formulated but the shades are STUNNING. 


I have been loving this lip colour the past few days. It's the Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in the shade Drivers Seat. 


I am living in a Disney bubble right now because we just booked our honeymoon for next summer and we are spending 7 days in the happiest place on earth! If you guys know me, then you know I am a Disney addict but I have never been to the parks. Finally, my dreams are coming true! 

Hopefully this next week will be a little less intense. How was your week?

New In Beauty | New Makeup Releases That Are Beyond Exciting Ft. YSL Smashbox, NARS & More! | Vol. 1

New In Beauty | New Makeup Releases That Are Beyond Exciting Ft. YSL Smashbox, NARS & More! | Vol. 1 | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

I don't know about you but I have a bit of a love affair with the "Just Arrived" page on Sephora. There are new products popping up on almost a daily basis and there is nothing better than the burst of excitement you feel when a product you've been anxiously waiting for appears! So I figured you guys might just feel the same way and I thought why not be excited together?

So welcome to the New In Beauty series where I will periodically share the new releases that I am most excited for! 

1. NARSISSIST Dual Intensity Cheek Palette ($76 CAD) - a limited edition blush palette featuring four of NARS' Dual Intensity powders in the form of a highlight, 2 blushes and a contour. These powders can be used wet or dry for a customized finish and they feature Translucent Prismatic Technology, which delivers a multidimensional effect. The shades are Soft Tulle (highlight), Damask with Gold Sheen (blush), Peony (blush) and Titian (contour). 

2. Elizabeth & James Nirvana Rose Eau de Parfum (1oz $82 CAD) - the original Elizabeth & James Nirvana fragrance (which is my absolute favourite!) has been reimagined in two new scents - Rose & Bourbon. I'm more excited for Rose since I LOVE anything Rose but I'm sure Bourbon is incredible. Rose is described as "a seductive floral blend embodying the heart of a dark rose with notes of rose de mai, geranium and vetiver for a sultry refined scent with intrigue." 

3. YSL Lumiere Divine Highlighting Finishing Powder Palette ($59 CAD) - YSL can do no wrong in beauty, everything they release is absolutely stunning and this baby is no exception. This is a lightweight finishing powder infused with light-reflecting gold shimmer to give skin a luminous glow. Apply when the light naturally hits the face for an enhanced, natural-looking radiance. 

4. Marc Jacobs Style Eye Con No. 20 Eyeshadow Palette ($124 CAD) - a limited edition palette with 20 of Marc Jacobs' signature eyeshadows. The shadows are organized into five columns for a complete wardrobe of curated looks - a golden moment, red-carpet glamour, a modern smoky eye, daytime glamour and a casual daytime look. The oversized golden palette features shimmering metallics, buttery mattes and lustrous sheens formulated with advanced pigments for true colour payoff and long lasting performance.

5. NARS Sculpting Multiple Duo ($52 CAD) - a portable, dual-ended stick that make contouring a breeze with a contouring shade and a luminous highlight that can be used on lips, cheeks and eyes. This versatile stick comes in 3 shades so there is an option for every skin tone including the infamous Laguna and Copacabana. 

6. Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation ($48 CAD) - I have heard so many rave reviews about this foundation and some of my beauty blogging friends have said it's the best they've tried so I need to get my hands on it! This is an oil-free, hydrating foundation that is designed to last all day from start to finish. Light diffusing spheres blur imperfections while makeup stays colour true in any light. The blendable formula offers medium to full buildable coverage that is exercise-resistant and sweat and transfer proof for an all day flawless finish. It has an incredible shade range with 22 shades that cover a number of undertones and depths. 

So those are the products that are at the very top of my "must buy" list - at least for now! New products pop up all the time so I will be back before you know it with even more products! 

What are you coveting right now?

Cheek to Cheek | Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon "Kick Up Your Cheeks Blush Kit" | Review & Swatches

Cheek to Cheek | Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon "Kick Up Your Cheeks Blush Kit" | Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

Being in this business means a lot of products come across my desk every single day and to keep track of everything I have a certain method for organizing and storing them. When something new comes in, I shoot it, I add it to my "to write" lists and the product then gets added to my makeup collection for testing. After a few weeks a blog post is written and scheduled to be shared with you!

Well I must admit that every once in awhile a product will come into my life that I become so obsessed with that the testing phase just goes on and on. That is exactly what happened with the Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon "Kick Up Your Cheeks Blush Kit". It was love at first sight and I just couldn't put it down long enough to write a review. Thankfully, this limited edition palette is still available at Ulta, some Sephora's, Beauty Boutique and Benefit's website! 

The Cheekathon Basics

The Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon "Kick Up Your Cheeks Blush Kit" ($58 USD/$75 CAD) is a seriously adorable palette with pink and gold accents and Benefit's beautiful boxed powder showgirls front and centre. It is a slim almost book-sized palette with a magnetic closure that is perfect for travel. The packaging is pretty much the prettiest thing ever but it gets even better when you open it up!

Cheek to Cheek | Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon "Kick Up Your Cheeks Blush Kit" | Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Inside Cheekathon

Inside the Cheekathon palette live 5 of Benefit's classic best-selling boxed powders. These carefully picked powders offer everything you could need for contouring, bronzing, highlighting and adding a flush of colour in one handy package. 

The great thing is all of these powders are multifunctional and can be used by just about any skin tone. You can wear each one alone or you can layer and build for your own custom creation. 

While Benefit has done plenty of similar boxed powder palettes over the past couple of years (and they have been amazing) this particular palette is in a league of it's own! Not only are all 5 of the blushes FULL SIZE giving you an incredible value of $150 USD/$180 CAD (each blush comes to $15 each instead of the regular price of $30 each) but the quality is top notch. 

Cheek to Cheek | Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon "Kick Up Your Cheeks Blush Kit" | Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Cheekathon Shades & Formula

Hoola - Matte Cool Toned Bronzer 
Dandelion - Baby Pink Brightening Blush or Face Powder
Rockateur - Rose Gold (mauve-pink with gold shimmer) Blush
Dallas - Dusty Rose (mauve-brown) Blush or Bronzer
Coralista - Shimmery Coral Pink Blush

The powders in the palette are exactly equal to their individual counterparts in pigmentation, softness and blendability which is rare in most mass palettes. These powders are super smooth and soft with an almost buttery texture. 

They are really nicely pigmented with Dallas & Hoola being just a bit stronger. The colour payoff is at that perfect level where you can build it up and layer to get your ideal flush but you can never go overboard.

(L-R - Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas, Coralista)

Cheekathon Verdict

The Cheekathon palette is a total showstopper! It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful palettes I have ever seen and it has everything you could ever want on the inside. The combination of the incredible value (5 blushes for the price of 2!) the incredible formula and practicality make this a palette you don't want to miss! 

Application Tip 
(my favourite way to use the palette)

- apply Dallas all over as a bronzer
- use Hoola as a contour
- apply Rockateur on the apples of the cheeks
- add Watts Up for an extra pop! 

The Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon Blush Kit is still available at Ulta, some Sephora stores, and Beauty Boutique.

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words | Weekly Instagram Roundup


Hey Beauties! 

Oh my gosh, I can't explain to you how crazy this week has been! It seems we are going through an intense heat wave at the moment and it has been almost 40 degrees (90ish Fahrenheit) all week long. It has made everyone super sluggish and uncomfortable so I have been staying inside as much as possible! 

I have officially booked my first wedding dress appointment for October so it's crunch time to get in shape. I have been getting up early in the morning and hitting the gym and my diet has changed significantly but of course I can't ditch my coffee. 

I recently discovered a gorgeous cafe in the city that is like stepping into a piece of Paris. I fell head over heels for the atmosphere and the fact that their coffee is delish is a bonus. 


Nothing feels better than a fresh set of nails! I always go for a longer coffin shape and this time I went with OPI's Tiramisu For Two


There is something so beautiful about handwritten notes so I made sure to send out a few. I just love the look on someone's face when they receive a note, you can always tell that the time it took to write means so much. 


There are SO many new goodies being released at Sephora right now and I just couldn't help myself. I placed two orders and this is what I got! Stay tuned for reviews!

What did you get up to this week? Make sure to stay up to date on Instagram @labellesirene_

Roses Are Red | Wild Rose Infused Skincare With Korres | Brightening Vitamin C Oil & Targeted Tone Corrector Review & Swatches

Roses Are Red | Wild Rose Infused Skincare With Korres | Brightening Vitamin C Oil & Targeted Tone Corrector Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

If you know anything about me then you might know that I love anything rose, whether it's rose scented, infused or themed I just know I will love it. It might have something to do with Rose being my middle name or the fact that they have been my favourite flowers since I was a kid but it more so has to do with the amazing benefits that rose has for your skin, hair and overall wellbeing. 

Luckily, I'm not the only one who sees how great the benefits of roses are and skincare brands are pumping out rose themed products. One of those brands is Korres and they have been at the front of the pack with 20 years of Wild Rose Oil being used in their products. 

Who is Korres?

Korres is an incredible brand from Greece that uses Ancient Greek formulas and potent botanicals found in nature to create products packed to the brim with benefits. They have a variety of collections with themed around specific ingredients including their Wild Rose range that is developed around Wild Rose Oil which is nature's most potent skin brightener with 9 times more vitamin C that what you find in orange juice. 

Their Wild Rose range is full of tone correcting moisturizers, masks, toners and serums and I got to test out two of them in celebration of their 20th anniversary of using Wild Rose Oil. 

Roses Are Red | Wild Rose Infused Skincare With Korres | Brightening Vitamin C Oil & Targeted Tone Corrector Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Korres' Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil ($54 USD/$75 CAD) is a powerful brightening oil that treats discolouration, dark spots, acne scaring and more. 

The clear oil comes housed in a gorgeous glass bottle with a dropper and a layer of rose petals nestled along the bottom. The oil is home to a number of powerful ingredients like Wild Rose Oil and Super C, a stabilized fat soluble Vitamin C derivative that helps increase skin's absorption of Vitamin C up to 1000%. It is also rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9, fatty acids and Vitamin A all of which combine to provide a healthy dose of antioxidants to the skin while repairing the look of fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin's overall texture and tone. 

Roses Are Red | Wild Rose Infused Skincare With Korres | Brightening Vitamin C Oil & Targeted Tone Corrector Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

The inclusion of Camapu, a plant derived extract delivers anti-thermal aging (by stimulating collagen production) and anti-inflammatory benefits while improving skins texture, tone, luminosity and elasticity. It is 94.5% natural and also includes Bisabolol and Ginger Root to soothe skin and Sunflower Seed Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil to moisturize deeply. 

How It Works

Behind all of those ingredients is a beautiful oil that just might be the perfect oil for those who fear anything oil. It is incredibly lightweight and feels quite dry compared to others, it has a silky, smooth finish that is not at all greasy, shiny or "oily". It absorbs easily into skin, softening and soothing any irritations or discolouration. 

After just a few days of use you will notice considerably brighter, clearer skin. Any dark spots or acne marks will have faded and be less visible, wrinkles and lines will be less obvious and your skin will be more plump with an overall radiant glow. 

Application Tips

I have been using this oil for a couple of months and I have seen such an incredible difference in my skin with the way it looks and feels. I like to add a couple of drops to my moisturizer both day and night but you can also use it before foundation for an added glow. 

Roses Are Red | Wild Rose Infused Skincare With Korres | Brightening Vitamin C Oil & Targeted Tone Corrector Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

The Korres Brightening Targeted Tone Corrector ($43 USD/$60 CAD) is the perfect partner in crime to the Brightening Oil. It is an intensive facial treatment that helps to further prevent and correct all types of discolouration. 

The corrector is a 91% natural treatment that can be used all over the face as a serum or directly on a certain area as a targeted spot treatment. It is enriched with active ingredients including pure Vitamin C, Wild Rose Oil and Super C to brighten overall skin tone, Sea Fern Extract to decrease pigmentation and Sand Lily Extract to reduce the size and pigment of dark spots. 

It is a lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly and dries to soft matte finish. It does not irritate skin or clog pores. 

Roses Are Red | Wild Rose Infused Skincare With Korres | Brightening Vitamin C Oil & Targeted Tone Corrector Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Both the Brightening Vitamin C Oil and the Targeted Tone Corrector are fantastic products packed with ingredients that prove the power of natural botanicals. They work wonders for your skin in a short period of time and they smell incredible to boot. 

Have you tried any of Korres' products? They are available at Sephora & Shoppers Drug Mart

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

Let's be honest, the beauty world has become crazy obsessed with perfecting our eyebrows and I am totally a supporting member of the brow revolution. I remember my high school days when I had no idea what magic could be created with a brow pencil and a little bit of gel but those days are long gone - for the better! 

I have tried a million different pencils, powders and gels from a million different brands and my skill set has definitely grown and improved over time. I definitely think that my years of bad brows, mismatched shades and poorly products has made me a bit of an expert when it comes to my brows and now I know what truly makes the ultimate brow collection. 

The new Benefit Cosmetics Brow Collection is what my eyebrow dreams are made of and the answer to all of my prayers. I gave you guys a little sneak peek before the collection was released but now that I have tried, tested and fallen head over heels for every product I wanted to give you an updated review. 

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

Benefit's new magic show themed collection debuts some brand new products as well as re-formulating the staples we all love. 

The new range features 9 products that will help you achieve the eyebrows of your dreams. They come in vibrant, colourful boxes with pop art-esque writing and retro touches. Each product comes in gorgeous silver packaging with an overall vintage vibe and touches of art-deco design. Going along with the magic show theme, some of the products look very much like miniature magic wands which is so very fitting. 

The overall design of the line is very well thought out and incredibly cohesive from one product to the next. The line really speaks to Benefit's aesthetic - it's fun, bright and playful!  

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

The Products

The new range features a few old favourites that have either been re-formulated or have had additional shades added to the line as well as a bunch of brand new goodies. It covers everything from pencils and powders to gels and primers. 

BROWVO! Conditioning Primer ($28 USD) - is going to be a staple for girls with sparse brows! It is a nutrient-rich primer that helps to give the look of fuller looking brows while also helping your brows grow! It features Keratin and soy proteins and can be used alone or under brow products for extra fullness. It's the perfect base for any brow, helping products stick to the hairs and letting them fulfill their potential.

The Goof-Proof Brow Pencil ($24 USD) - is the answer to achieving picture perfect brows in seconds. It is a thicker, retractable pencil that features a tip that lies somewhere between the shape of a triangle and a hexagon. It gives you the ability to draw different lines with each side for various depths and thicknesses. You can be very precise or fill in your brows in seconds. 

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

Precisely, My Brow Pencil ($24 USD) - replaces the original brow pencil and is Benefit's answer to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. This twist-up pencil is all about adding definition and depth with a tiny tip that can draw hair like strokes and precise outlines. It is perfect for carving out areas like the arch or the tail and it promises 12hr wear. It comes in 6 shades. 

I like to float between this and the Goof Proof pencil for carving out my brows. They both have an incredibly creamy and ultra pigmented formula that glides on with just enough tug. 

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

KA-BROW! Cream-Gel Brow Colour ($24 USD) - is one of my absolute favourite products in the new range. It is essentially a brow pomade that comes in a pot and features a hidden angled brush. It's cream texture makes it the perfect product for achieving those picture perfect brows that you see all over Instagram. It is great for carving out bold brows or for filling in brows with sparse areas. It comes in 6 shades. 

I love it because it has a really beautiful texture and the perfect level of pigmentation for bold brows. I love to layer it over a pencil for extra depth. It is much creamier and easier to work with than it's ABH counterpart. 

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

Brow Zings Total Taming & Shaping Kit ($32 USD) - a long time favourite of many benebabes, this duo got a bit of a make over but no worries it is just as amazing as before. It features a tinted wax and a powder along with a pair of mini tweezers and a handy hinged double-ended brush. It now comes in 6 new shades. 

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

Gimme Brow Volumizing Fibre Gel ($24 USD) - my favourite Benefit brow product is back and now comes in a third shade for those girls who didn't fit into the "light" or "dark" selections. This is a tinted setting gel that makes your brows look more voluminous by adding tiny fibres that emulate the look of natural hair. It great for adding depth, thickness and fullness to your brows. 

I also love to use it on my off days for adding a quick wash of colour when I need to run out the door. 

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

Ready, Set, Brow! Invisible Shaping & Setting Gel ($24 USD) - is a clear setting gel that lets you decide where you brow hairs should lay and it locks them into place. It promises 24hr hold and has an invisible finish that never gets crispy or stiff. The real magic with this product lies within the brush, it is a flat paddle style brush with bristles along the edges. The flat sides make it simple to push brows into place and help tricky hairs lie flat while the bristle help comb through them. 

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

3D Browtones Highlighting Gel ($24 USD) - is a really interesting new product, it's the first of it's kind and a new staple in my routine. It is a subtle brow enhancing gel that essentially adds highlight to your brows. For a girl like me who can't live without her highlight it makes so much sense to highlight my brows in another way. 

It comes in 2 shades that compliment all brow tones and it has a fascinating brush that only deposits product onto the hair itself for a natural highlight. I love to use it as the last step in my routine to add a glow to the tops of my brow hairs. 

A Magical Brow Show | Benefit Cosmetics New Brow Collection | Product Reviews & Roundup | labellesirene.ca

High Brow & High Brow Glow Pencil ($24 USD) - these infamous pencils are back and better than ever. The champagne and ivory-pink pencils are incredible for cleaning up around the brows, hiding unsightly hairs and highlighting under the arch and the inner corner. The new version features a creamier formula that glides on smoothly. 

Colour Selection

Not only did Benefit introduce a variety of new products and newly improved products, they introduced a completely new shade range. There are now 6 different shades with corresponding numbers that translate through all of the products. The new range makes it an absolute breeze to find the shade that works best for you and I know it's true because they had the PERFECT shade for me when I have never been able to find a match in any other product or any other brand.

Wearing shade 3 of the Goof Proof Pencil, Ka-Brow Gel, Ready Set Brow & 3D Browtones. 

The Benefit Cosmetics Brow Collection is truly a thing of magic. It has the perfect product for every brow need and every shade. I have never loved a brow product as much I love this collection and I have never been as impressed. If you buy one new thing this month, make it a Benefit brow product!

Pin It!
