Needful Things - Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette

I was hoping to find this little beauty under the tree but since Santa stiffed me, I'm buying my own Christmas present:

Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette - $51 - a palette with three radiance-enhancing highlighters: Transcendence - opalescent pink - for a bold, ethereal glow, Kitten - shimmering nude pink - that brightens and illuminates and Bronze - sunkissed radiance - for a sunkissed glow - layer them together or wear alone for a multitude of effects.

The highlighters themselves are ultra-smooth and bouncy to the touch with a texture that melts into the skin for a barely-there feel and are infused with ultra-fine, light-diffusing particles for skin that looks naturally radiant and glowing from within. 

Available at Stila counters across Canada including Murale, select Shoppers Drug Mart stores, Sephora and sephora.ca.

This week I'm obsessed with... Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette!

Seven years in the making, it's finally here!

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette - $43 - an eye, lip and face transformer palette with four holographic shades that catch the light from every angle for a spectrum of luminizing special effects: Emerald - green, Saphyre - blue, Amethyst - ultra-violet and Opal - pink - that are part top coat and part transformer - perfect for achieving a spectrum of radiant, special effects through layering and blending - or can be used as a super-shimmery highlighter - because the formula is packed with high-quality, pearlescent particles, a little goes a long way so don't overdo or you'll end up with alien face!.

Formulated with Double Dimension Technology, a first-of-its-kind formula that is packed with 360° refractive pearls, dipped in a prismatic coating, to deliver twice the transforming power.

At first glance the palette seems underwhelming with very muted looking blah kind of shades - don't let it fool you though, they are freaking amazing! Best test you can do - go find that eyeshadow or lipstick that I know you have that looked nice in the package but crappy on your skin - now add a layer of the transformer shade of your choice and watch it turn from blah to wow! Now try it again with a different transformer - something new every time - I feel like a kid with a new box of crayons!

Available exclusively at Sephora - if your'e a Sephora VIB member, this little beauty can be yours now, otherwise you will have to wait until Saturday to stick it in your basket!

Chic hair made easy with L’Oréal Professionnel French Girl Hair by Techni.ART!

Been longing for a way to get a little bit of that je ne sais quoi that French girls exude so effortlessly?

L’Oréal Professionnel introduces a way to get that chic, yet effortless look for your hair that French girls pull off so well with Tecni.ART’s new French Girl Hair styling products.

Hair of any type can get the perfect French Girl look, thanks to a couple of new products that offer effortless texture and natural shine:
French Froissé - 150ml - $24.15 - a cream for thin hair to give nonchalant tousles on lengths and ends

Messy Cliché - 150ml - $25.65 - a spray for thick hair to give messy texture on lengths and ends.

The last secret to perfect your chic à la française is the pro braided gesture that your hairdresser can do in salon and teach you how to replicate at home. Inspired by backstage hairstylists, it originally comes from the beauty routines of French women themselves who braid their hair before going to bed. It will give your hair this slightly wavy effect that makes all the difference and will definitely make you look so frenchy!

I plan on getting pro tips on how to do it next time I am at the salon but my non-expect experimentation has me adding a dab of French Froissé to slightly damp hair and then braiding it before I go to bed and in the morning my normally fine hair has so much texture it's unreal! I find it looks best when I vary how tightly I braid - some of the braids tight, some loose for a less even look that looks more natural and so pretty!
