NEW Product Line: Lise Watier Neon Love

(From the press release) "For Summer 2010, the Lise Watier Neon Love collection lets loose and dives into a fantastic world of vivid colour, a place that blurs the lines between dream and reality.

This summer, go bold with neons – and not just on your fingernails! Dare to create a punchy, potent look with exuberant hues. Shades of the 80s, but brighter, fresher, freer: intense acid pastels like shimmering lime, bubblegum pink, and icy aqua, teamed with more neutral, sometimes darker tones that balance the palette’s brilliance."

Quator Neon Love Eyeshadow Quartet, $35 CAD
Two wildly seductive incarnations, each with 4 eyeshadows that work in perfect
harmony. The season’s palettes are imbued with rich tones and shimmering finishes. As always, Lise Watier shadows are satiny-textured and easy to apply, gently formulated and paraben-free. Limited edition. Available from May to July inclusively.
- Shine: a foursome of shadows with super-saturated pigments. Brighten the
lids with iridescent lime-green, frosted pinkish-white, shocking pink and incandescent taupe
- Bronze: features a gold-tinged sun yellow, a soft coral, a warm brown that’s both muted and shimmery, and an amber tangerine

SOLO Eyeshadows, $17.00 CAD
The SOLO eyeshadow family by Lise Watier adds 3new shades to the regular line-up: a trio of delectable sorbet flavours that share a sublime affinity with the Neon Love trend.
- Blanc Neige: snowy white with frosted accents
- Orange Crush: an electric fruity hue
- Bleu Curacao: an icy aqua

Eye Shine, $16.00 CAD
These timeless favourites are renewed in 3 brilliant shades, making a fleeting appearance for the season. Eyeliners with an ultra-metallic finish and creamy texture that glide on for a perfectly contoured eye. Limited edition. Available from May to July inclusively.
- White: the misty snow-white makes summer’s wild fluorescents really pop. The unique formula brightens the eye area (always remember the inside corner!) and is a great alternative to traditional, pale highlighting shadows.
- Lime: a metallic lime shade, as vivid and tonic as freshly squeezed citrus.
- Orange Cuivre: a 100% metallic orangey hue that's reminiscent of a blazing sunset, a color inspired by the fiery sun rays disappearing below the horizon.

Neon Lash & Line Glitter Duo, $19.00 CAD
Our beloved glitter liners have a new look and innovative new tube! The formula’s the same: water-based, non-streaking, long-wearing and, of course, 100% glitter! The difference is in the fabulous new applicator. Both a liner and a mascara, Neon Lash & Line Glitter Duo features an applicator to precisely line the lids and a high-definition brush to brighten the tips of the lashes with shimmery accents. This summer, rediscover 4 classic shades, available, just for this season, in a new tube that complies with your every whim. Limited edition. Available from May to July inclusively.
- Sunshine (satin): a honeyed base shade with the glimmer of precious stones, gold, and bronze
- Opale (satin): a delicate pinkish-white base, at the heart of a glittering pastel rainbow
- Peacock: glitter particles in notes of
turquoise, blue, and tourmaline
- Fuchsia: loaded with vibrant fuchsia sparkles, with the subtlest hint of violet shimmer
- Lime: an effervescent formula of acid lime glitter

Duo Havana Bronze Evolution, $35.00 CAD
With the much-anticipated arrival of summer, this bronzing powder is the
indispensable tool for brightening the complexion, getting a sunless tan and an instant glow. Its innovative formula presents 3 options of shades that will evolve with you over time and adapt to the intensity of your tan. A lighter shade
to dive right into summer, a darker shade to enjoy the last days of summer or a combination of both shades to create a brand new shade halfway between the summer solstice and the fall equinox. The soft, silky texture of this loose powder blends easily into the skin and provides a natural, sun-kissed glow. Its mineral formula suits all skin types. Limited edition. Available from May to July inclusively.

Havana Duo Kiss & Glow, $35.00 CAD
The innovative packaging offers 2 products in 1 bottle: a shimmering body gel at the bottom, a creamy lip gloss at the top. The light, non-sticky and non-greasy texture of the shimmering gel blends into the skin to enhance your sun-kissed glow. Its precious golden glitters leaves skin bathed in shimmering highlights. The gel goes on effortlessly, sparkles all day long and washes off instantly with soap and water. Its delicate aroma is reminiscent of warm summer days with subtle notes of sweet coconut. Use alone for a total luminous look, or blend with moisturizer for a more understated effect. The spatula-applicator is perfect for an easy, mess-free application. The creamy-textured gloss dresses the lips in a warm, shiny hue – a bronze shade that makes for the perfect, natural, sunkissed look. Limited edition. Available from May to July inclusively.

Product Review: LillyPilly Eucalyptus with Nerolina Hand & Body Creme

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: LillyPilly
Name: : Eucalyptus with Nerolina Hand & Body Creme
Size: 50 ml / 1.7 fl. oz.
Price: $9.99 USD

I've recently discovered the lovely Australian brand, LillyPilly and am excited to start trying more of their products

The Hand & Body Creme has "the refreshing and cooling properties of natural Eucalyptus. The subtle menthol aroma blended with the lavender and lilac undertones of Nerolina oil works together to invigorate your senses and leave your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Enriched with vitamins A & E, omega oils and Aloe Vera." (from the website)

To learn more about LillyPilly or to order their products, check out their website at

To Purr About:
- super light scent is barely noticeable
- not greasy
- extremely moisturizing and absorbs very quickly

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
I love this cream! It's very light, has very little fragrance and is so effective. It takes nothing to rub in and absorbs very quickly, leaving my skin moisturized, but not greasy at all.

My skin feels great after using this.

The only drawback is that the price is a little high for 50 ml. Considering most of the body creams I use come in larger volumes, I have to ration the cream and so have been using most of it on hands and elbows/knees.

Product Review: Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Olay
Name: : Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
Size: 50 ml
Price: $36.00 CAD

I have tried a few Olay products with positive results, so I decided to try their new Regenerist line.

From Olay’s website: "The result of over 50 years of Olay research, this luxurious cream has the highest concentration of our signature amino-peptide complex infused with intracellular fortifier and a touch of precious marine proteins.

Intracellular hydration regenerates skin’s appearance by improving volume and shape across skin’s 10 million surface cells, progressively firming to help:
  • Firm the appearance of sagging-prone areas, even the jaw line
  • Smooth skin’s surface
  • Restore elasticity"
To Purr About:
- super moisturizing and left my skin feeling plump, soft and amazing
- did not irritate my super sensitive skin
- had a pleasant (not overpowering) smell

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
Although I don’t require much "firming" of my skin at this time in my life, I did try this product as my night time moisturizer.

I don’t think I would use this as a day time moisturizer for several reasons: it would too heavy, would probably interfere with my make-up application and does not have any SPF. I would however definitely use this as a night time moisturizer, especially in the dry winter months.

It left my skin super moisturized and looking healthy and is priced quite reasonably for such a heavy-duty cream. I can’t say anything towards the "firming" properties of this cream, but while using it my wrinkles did stay at bay which is always a good thing.

My only comment against this product is that it comes in a jar format. I’m beginning to really like the pump dispensers as it seems more hygienic and reduces the likelihood of any germs on my fingers from contaminating the rest of the contents.

Product Review: Skindinavia Summer Moisturizer

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Skindinavia
Name: : Summer Moisturizer
Size: 4 fl oz / 118 ml
Price: $39.00 USD

Skindinavia has just launched a new moisturizer for the summer, a mist-able solution to heavy cream moisturizers. The Summer Moisturizer is a spray moisturizer with SPF 8.

From the press release: "Perfect for summer weather, or year round for those with oily / combination skin, this delicate and breathable mist offers all-day hydration that absorbs instantly without an oily residue. Summer Moisturizer primes skin and helps keep makeup in place and its simple spray application allows for use anywhere."

To Purr About:
- incredibly light, watery moisturizer that absorbs super-fast
- lovely moisturization without any greasiness
- does help prime my skin for makeup application
- very little goes a long way
- another light layer of SPF for my face

Claws Out:
- I can't get used to the spray, so it's a little messy in application
- my skin is still a little dry from the winter and this moisturizer isn't hydrating enough right now

Final Comments:
This moisturizer is so different from any other facial moisturizer I've ever used. It's a light, watery spray that gets instantly absorbed and leaves my skin hydrated and primed for makeup.

The only drawback is that I can't get used to the spray. I have to cover my eyes to apply it and it gets kind of everywhere. After a few sprays, I usually spread it around with my fingers until every part of my face is covered.

It's a great, light moisturizer and the SPF is a bonus. Because it's so light, a little goes a long way.

I just wish I could figure out a better way to apply this without getting it all over the place!

Product Review: bodycology Body Mist

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: bodycology
Name: : Body Mist
Size: 8 oz.
Price: $4.99 USD

Scent Tried: Cherry Blossom

A lovely and light body mist with aloe vera that hydrates the skin and leaves a light, summery scent.

Also available in:
- BerryPear
- Brown Sugar Vanilla
- Coconut Lime
- Cucumber Melon
- Fresh Waters
- Sweet Petals
- Midnight Garden
- Vanilla Cupcake
- White Gardenia

To Purr About:
- lovely Cherry Blossom fragrance
- mist is nice and cooling
- very good value

Claws Out:
- scent is a little strong to be able to use too much at once

Final Comments:
I love the scent of cherry blossoms and it's a favourite scent of mine during the summer months. So I was excited to try bodycology's latest body mist in Cherry Blossom. At a low price for a nice-sized bottle, it's a great deal. I love the cooling mist and the fragrance is really sweet, but it's quite strong so only a little spray is enough to leave a lasting scent. I find the scent a little overpowering if I use too much of it so a little goes a long way with this!

I'd love to try some of the other scents available from bodycology!

Product Review: Lise Watier Resist-Age Reenergizing Night Creme

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Lise Watier
Name: : Resist-Age Reenergizing Night Creme
Size: 50 ml
Price: $58.00 CAD

Developed to complement the other products in the Lise Watier Resist-Age line (the Metamulsion Serum and the Youth-Extender Day Fluid), the Reenergizing Night Creme "stimulates cell repair and revives tired skin to give it a smoother, more rested appearance". (from the press release)

The formula:
- contains to parabens
- includes sweet almond oil, shea butter and glycerine
- contains DNA Protector and Phytoamine NRG Complex
- is recommended for normal and combinationskin

To Purr About:
- light formula absorbs quickly
- light fragrance isn't too sweet
- easy to use pump packaging
- a little goes a long way
- skin felt moisturized

Claws Out:
- quite expensive for the amount you get
- not as moisturizing as other night creams I've tried

Final Comments:
I liked this product because it was extremely light and quick absorbing, but still moisturized my skin and kept it from feeling dry. It's quite expensive, so it's a good thing that you don't need very much to cover your face/neck area and the pump packaging is conveninent. I'm used to my night creams being very rich, so this is very light in comparison and I wasn't sure what to think. It does keep my face moisturized, but is probably better in the summer than in the winter (when my face is extra dry).

I have found my skin feeling slightly more...supple (not sure who else to describe it) and the dryness I was experiencing earlier last month has gone. I haven't switched my day cream so I have a tendency to think that this Lise Watier product contributed to the increase in moisture in my facial skin.

Product Reviewer: B. Kamins Booster Blue Rosacea-Targeted products

Reviewer: ShellySuperstar

Brand: B. Kamins
Name: : Booster Blue Rosacea-Targeted products
Size: varies
Price: varies

Seeing red? Try Booster Blue from B. Kamins

It’s quite fitting that my first post for Cinnamon Kitten comes just after April – Rosacea Awareness Month. I’ve never been officially diagnosed with the condition but I suffer with a lot of the symptoms; uneven, red blotchy skin, broken capillaries on my cheeks and I never where blush on my cheeks because my face is always flushed.

I’ve been looking for a product to cover the red on my cheeks and smooth my skin. For the past week, I have been using the Booster Blue Rosacea-Targeted products by B. Kamins:

- Soothing Skin Concentrate – 50 ml, $84 CAD
- Bio Maple Rosacea Cleanser – 237 ml, $41 CAD
- Moisturizer SPF – 62 g, $80 CAD

The line promises to "calm and sooth irritation, as well as cosmetically neutralize and reduce skin redness and blotchiness on rosacea type skin." I was quite sceptical...but when I stepped out of a hot shower after trying the Bio Maple Rosacea Cleanser and looked in the mirror – I was very pleasantly surprised. The normally blotchy red skin was calm and there was minimal redness. I continued with the rest of the products and was very impressed.

To Purr About:
- It instantly reduced the redness in my face, even after a hot shower – loved that!
- Soothing Skin Concentrate felt great and calmed my skin. Really nice to use under cover-up.
- Made in Canada

Claws Out:
- The Moisturizer Spf was quite thick and didn’t spread easily.
- The price is a bit steep for my pocketbook – but I loved the products.

Final Comments:
I really loved this line and was very happy with the results. I saw a noticeable improvement in the red on my face and neck within a week. So if you are sick of seeing red, I suggest you try the Booster Blue line from B. Kamins. It’s available in Canada at Sephora & Murale stores or online at
