Yves Saint Laurent Palette Lumiére de Jour Review, Photos, Swatches | YSL Spring 2015

The Yves Saint Laurent Couture Face Palette Lumiére de Jour ($55 CAD) for Spring 2015 is truly a collector's piece.

Inside is a pale pink (lighter than the promo pictures indicate) shimmering powder that can be used as a highlighter or all over the face. There is a fair amount of delicate sparkle meaning I would reserve this for evening use all over the

The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream Review | A Perfect Product for Teens

While The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream ($15 CAD/40 ml) may not be suited to my dry, aging skin it IS the perfect product for teen girls.

Often I find BB cream type products only come in a light-medium shade that is far too dark for fair skin tones. The Body Shop Tea Tree BB in Light is indeed very light and I didn't experience any oxidization through the day. I
