DECIEM NIOD | Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex: Review

Disclaimer: The product featured was provided for review.
DECIEM NIOD | Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex: Review
Touted as a professional skincare range that's a non-invasive complement to "dermatological and surgical options in beauty", NIOD is a brand under DECIEM, The Abnormal Beauty Company. I really enjoyed the three DECIEM's The Ordinary products I've recently tried so I thought I'd delve into the realm of NIOD and test out their bestselling product. Made with a combination of 15 different forms of hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate suspended in a peptide-charged delivery system, the Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex ($35 CAD for 15ml or $60 CAD for 30ml) is a hydration booster designed to make the skin healthier, plumper, and more elastic. So how well does this product work? Read my review to find out......

Christian Louboutin | Rouge Louboutin Silky Satin Lipstick: Review and Swatches
The story goes that when Christian Louboutin was putting the finishing touches on a pair of his glamorous stilettos, he thought that something was still amiss Luckily, his assistant was painting her nails nearby with a bottle of red nail polish and in a moment of eureka, the designer grabbed the nail polish and slathered the soles of the shoes red. Just like that, the iconic Louboutin red soles were born. Many years later with the launch of the Christian Louboutin Beauty range, the same red color was reinterpreted in many different forms, aptly given the name "Rouge Louboutin". So today I will be sharing with you my review and swatches of the Rouge Louboutin Silky Satin Lipstick ($120 CAD). To read on, click......
