#ClarinsBeauty magic via DAVE LACKIE

Earlier this week I was one of the 20 lucky ones, that had the privilege and honor to be invited to Dave Lackie's  #ClarinsBeauty VIP dinner at Arcadian Studio in Toronto.

I was head over heels happy and excited, when I received an invitation to the diner and I didn't know what to expect. Let me just say, everything was even better then I could have imagined. 

Beautiful flower arrangements, an amazing vibe, positive people, charming smiles and such warmth. Just to say the least. 

Meeting people that you've felt you have known for the longest time was just magical (oh Twitter Power). And they say, that we are losing human connection with the presence of social media.. Oh well, not in this case, I'll tell ya. 

The Clarins name has been around and known since 1954. It's quite impressive for a brand to be alive, to be knows and to be admired for this long. I remember my mom using Clarins skin care decades ago and now I am using their products too. If that's not a quality statement then I don't know what is.
You can read more about the brand and it's evolution on Dave Lackie's blog post - very informative and interesting article.

All of us, wonderful women - Dave Lackie fans and Twitter followers, had an opportunity not only to be treated like known beauty editors, but also had the privilage to meet, chat, cheer, dine and share a laugh and a hug with fabulous and charming Eric Antoniotti - Clarins International Artistic and Training Director. Yes, that's right. Weren't we lucky? Yes, we were.
This man was so passionate about what he does, it was almost addictive.
Eric gave us more knowledge about Clarins products, beauty tricks and tips and shared some great stories and jokes.

This fantastic interaction was accompanied by a gourmet diner, that looked so good, everyone felt the strong need to snap a picture prior to attacking it with utensils. (It tasted picture perfect as well.)

Doesn't this all sound like it couldn't get any better?! Well it did, we all received an early Christmas present - a fantastic gift bag filled with amazing Clarins skincare and beauty products:

Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil
01 Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base
3-Dot Liner
744 Soft Plum Joli Rouge Moisturizing Long-Wearing Lipstick
Kit Sourcils "Pro" Perfect Eyes & Brows Palette

I can't wait to try them all out and share my thoughts and experience. 

I would like to send a sincere thank you to Dave, for inviting us and making this all happen. You are an amazing human being. Thank you to Clarins for fantastic products and your people that made this evening wonderful. Thank you to CityLine for capturing our happy faces. Thank you to O&B Caters for food. It was so very good, that all of us forgot about our figure concerns and diets haha.

TelomErase Serum 6-in-1 Multi Corrective

Couple of weeks ago I received Reviv Serums "TelomErase Serum 6-in-1 Multi-Corrective" to try and review via BrandBacker.
I was excited as I always tend to get, when trying out new to me products. 
As I have said before, it's like serums era right now and there are so many of them in the market, that it is very easy to get confused and lost. That's why I like to try and explore more, to share the information and find the one that works the best for me. 

So here is what I received - couple of sample size (5ml) serum bottles and little thank you/info note that also had 15% discount code for next revivserums.com order. Here it is, if any of you want to give this one a try - T2X5HN.  

Reviv Serums company is located in San Francisco California and claims to specialize in novel and innovative clinical treatment serums for skin and hair rejuvenation. By clicking this link here you can find more information about them and their products.

Here is little bit about my experience using serum:

Reviv Serum, as you can see in the picture, is in bright yellow, I have to say, color little surprised and scared me, as most of the serums I have used, are clear or white-ish color. 

At first I tried little amount on my hand - I was not a fan of its scent - it was very strong and almost medicinal and didn't fade much. After application serum seemed to absorb quite quickly, but left skin feeling little sticky. 

I used it for little under 2 weeks and I can't say it worked for me. There were no visual skin improvements and I didn't like the sticky-ish feel it left my skin with after the use, nor could I get used to the strong smell it has. 

Unfortunately I have to say, in my experience, serum didn't deliver it's promises and didn't work for me. But as we all are so very different, it might work better for you or if you have had better experience with it, I would love to hear all about it in comment box below.

Covergirl The Super Sizer Mascara

Little while ago, I got invited to take part in Bzzagent's campaign. This time I had an opportunity to try and rate Covergirl's new The Super Sizer Mascara. Here is a photo of package I received - product itself and few coupons to share with my friends. 

I am a huge mascara addict. I can not leave my house without one. I can skip on other make up products, but not my mascara. That for sure is my beauty essential.
Naturally I have my favorite brands and mascaras, therefor I was little skeptical about this product. Also curious and interested to see it perform.

Product is in bold black color and comes in a chunky tube but has a very delicate wand.

This is what CoverGirl has to say in product description:
The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes— just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contact lenses.
It really gives you a bold look in matter of seconds. Specially designed wand gets to even smallest and shortest lashes and brings that great "wide open eye" look. And if you want to achieve more dramatic - Katie Perry look, just apply mascara for few more times. 
I was pleasantly surprised that this The Super Sizer Mascara didn't clump on me as a lot of volumizing ones tend to do.

Overall I was satisfied with the look it gave me, with mascaras performance and quality. It's an affordable drugstore brand, that definitely lives up to its promises and delivers a good result. 
If dramatic look is something you're longing and you're on a budget, I recommend to try this product. And if or when you do, share you experience in comment section below the post, I would love to read what you have to say about your experience with the product. 

*I received product free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.
