#SkincareGoals | The PERFECT Gift For A Skincare Addict | Sunday Riley #SquadGoals Skincare Essentials Set

#SkincareGoals | The PERFECT Gift For A Skincare Addict | Sunday Riley #SquadGoals Skincare Essentials Set | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

We all know that a good skincare routine is key for any situation whether it be a bare face or a full glam look. Every girl craves a clear, flawless complexion so they can always look and feel their absolute best but skincare is not quite as easy as it seems. 

I have been climbing a giant skincare mountain over the past few months, testing out brand after brand and constantly being underwhelmed. There were SO many products I wanted to love (especially the really popular ones) but nothing had even made a blip on my radar. Well, nothing up until I bit the bullet and decided to enter the world of Sunday Riley

Sunday Riley is an innovative brand that hails from the UK. It is known for its smart high-performance skincare that focuses on fast results with a long-term payoff. Their products have a bit of a cult following and it seems that they work miracles for each and every consumer. 
Sunday Riley claims to have found the perfect union between science and nature by specializing in "Green Technology" a transformative method that mixes advanced active ingredients and purified botanicals in an ultra-effective cocktail. 

I have had my eye on a few of their cult-classic products for the longest time but along with good ingredients and an effective formula comes a high price tag that I just couldn't swallow. 

The new #SquadGoals Skincare Essentials Kit ($110 CAD/$90 USD) combines 4 of their top bestsellers in one handy kit at a much more reasonable price and it is the PERFECT way to test out the brand for yourself. 

#SkincareGoals | The PERFECT Gift For A Skincare Addict | Sunday Riley #SquadGoals Skincare Essentials Set | labellesirene.ca

The #SquadGoals Kit contains a carefully curated regime intended to brighten, exfoliate and hydrate deep down. It includes the Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser (1oz - $63 alone), the Luna Sleeping Night Oil (0.25oz - $131 alone), the Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream (0.5oz - $85 alone), and the Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment (0.5oz - $147 alone).

This routine combines the power of retinol, lactic acid (AHA's), hyaluronic acid and brightening alpha-arbutin with select botanicals to improve the look and texture of skin (dullness, uneven tone, enlarged pores), fight hyperpigmentation, work against visible signs of aging (fine lines, spots and wrinkles) and prevent dehydration. Together all four products work to completely balance your skin and correct any issues you may have. 

The Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser - washes away pore-clogging debris and oil to deep clean and balance skin with French Green Clay and Morrocan Rhassoul Clay. Works wonders but doesn't strip the skin of moisture. 

The Luna Sleeping Night Oil - is a deep blue oil (turns clear on contact) that features a Trans-Retinoic Acid Ester Complex to fight wrinkles and texture as well as Blue Tansy and German Chamomile to calm and soothe skin. 

The Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream - offers an intense water drench with two forms of hyaluronic acid (draws water into the skin) and tamarind extract for visibly plumped and hydrated skin. Papaya Enzymes smooth and exfoliate while Alpha-Arbutin and White Bird Of Paradise diminish hyperpigmentation and illuminate the skin. 

The Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment - immediately exfoliates dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells with purified Lactic Acid to reveal fresher, smoother skin while licorice brightens. 

With daily use (I've been using it for two weeks) they wipe away all of your dead skin, clogged pores, and rough texture to reveal glowing perfected skin. The results are out of this world and probably the fastest and most obvious results that I have ever experienced. My skin has never looked or felt better and I have never received as many compliments as I have over the last couple of weeks. 

If you are trying to find a gift for a skincare lover or even if you just want to give Sunday Riley a try, the #SquadGoals Kit is the perfect option! I will definitely be buying the full sized products as soon as I run out because my skincare life is changed for good.  

Application Tips 

- Wash face with Ceramic Slip
- Massage Luna Oil into skin
- Smooth Good Genes over face
- Apply eye cream of your choice
- Finish off with Tidal

The Perfect Fall Outfit | Staples & Classic Pieces With Dynamite Clothing

The Perfect Fall Outfit | Staples & Classic Pieces With Dynamite Clothing | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

Fall is in full swing and I have been living for the chance to pull out my favourite fall outfits. While there are some days that I like to rock something a little more creative or unique on most days I like to stick to classic pieces that can be worn in a million different ways through switching up my accessories or even my lipstick. 

Lately, I have been pretty obsessed with buying my classic pieces from Dynamite Clothing. Every time I wander into a Dynamite store, I find myself surrounded by beautiful classic cuts and quality fabrics that just scream "buy me!". 

On my last trip, I picked up this GORGEOUS cream sweater (also comes in gray!) that is not only soft as butter but the subtle stripe detailing makes it feel so luxurious. It is the perfect cozy fall sweater, especially when paired with a pair of black jeggings and a patterned scarf (I also found this striped scarf at Dynamite!) Finish it all off with a vampy lipstick (Veronica by Anastasia Beverly Hills) and I am feeling fall!

Big Bang Beauty | Luxe Beauty Gifts That Might Just Break The Bank - But They're Totally Worth It! | A Gift Guide

Big Bang Beauty | Luxe Beauty Gifts That Might Just Break The Bank - But They're Totally Worth It! | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

Happy November! I don't know about you but I'm a little bit sad that October is no more. It is always one of my favourite months with the fall festivities, the changing leaves, and the yummy treats so it's bittersweet to see it go. 

The silver lining in the whole situation is that the beginning of November signals the beginning of the holiday season which means that beauty brands start releasing all of their holiday sets! 

Well, it seems that brands have gone above and beyond to make this year a year to remember with massive collector's sets that pack a punch in both product and price. 

The ultimate collector's sets are the PERFECT gift for any beauty lover but they are selling out fast so I thought I would compile a few of my favourites so you can score them while they last. 

1. Glamglow - The Magic Box of Sexy - $329 CAD ($560 value)An 11-piece gift set featuring mud and lip treatments for an instant glow. Comes with 6 mud masks each with a different purpose, 1 lip balm, 1 exfoliating lip treatment, 1 matte lip treatment, 1 gloss lip treatment and a dual-ended brush/spatula. 

2. Natasha Denona - Eyeshadow Palette 28 - $305 CADAn eye shadow palette with 28 shades that beautifully layer together for breathtaking eye looks. 

3. Velour - Holiday False Lash Collection - $390 CAD - Sold out already! 

4. Kat Von D - Shade & Light Obsession Collector's Edition Contour Set - $263 CADA once-in-a-lifetime, limited-edition set of Kat Von D’s Shade + Light contour collection—plus, a hand-signed note from Kat. Inside, discover the Shade + Light Face Contour Refillable Palette and Face Contour Brush, the Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette and Eye Contour Brush, and two Shade + Light Eye Contour Quads in Plum and Smoke. 

5. Laura Mercier - The Iconics Celebrating 20 Years of Laura's Artistry Set - $204 CADA limited-edition makeup collection of 12 iconic Laura Mercier favourites. It includes full sizes of the Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rosegold, Longwear Crème Eye Pencil in Noir, Full Blown Volume Supreme Lash Building Mascara, Lip Pencil in Baby Lips, Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Mon Cheri. Mini sizes of Face Polish, Foundation Primer in Radiance, Translucent Loose Setting Powder with a mini Velour Puff, Bonne Mine Stick Face Colour in Peach Glow, Matte Radiance Baked Powder with a mini Fan Brush, Eye Basics in Wheat, and Lip Glace in Bellini. 

6. Make Up For Ever - Artistic Aqua XL Eye Pencil Collection - $298 CADA limited-edition collection kit, featuring a complete range of 20, full-size, waterproof Aqua XL Eye Pencils. 

7. Kat Von D - Everlasting Obsession Liquid Lipstick Collector's Edition - $300 CAD ($375 value)A one-of-a-kind, collector’s edition of top-selling, Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in 13 favourite shades and two new exclusives (Devils, a siren red color, and Lovecraft, a beloved nude from the Studded Kiss Lipstick collection) all in full size.

8. Urban Decay - UD XX 20 Years of Beauty With an Edge - $450 CAD ($936 value)a bold collection with favourites from the last 20 years. This ultra limited-edition set features a whopping 20 shades of eye shadow and 20 shades of the coveted 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.
