TALIKA PARIS!

Oh my! Ladies, I have a new brand to share with you!  Talika Paris!  A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to a small makeup party here in Beverly Hills.  The common denominator: they were all French based cosmetic companies.  Imagine an afternoon filled with walking from table to table, learning from the brands’ experts about their products and best-sellers, and then being gifted with some goodies to try out on our celebrities, clients, and selves….  DREAM SCENARIO!  I’m sorry you all couldn’t be there with me, but at least I am able to report to you the good things that I found on this little adventure.

I am totally crazy about this (new to me) brand, Talika Paris!  I have tried a few of their products the past few weeks, and immediately had to share the results with you….SHARING IS CARING!  I’d like to start out and give a little intro about the brand….

“Our story begins here, by an unexpected discovery.

In 1948, a young doctor eye specialist in Hospitals of Paris, named Danielle Roches treated war wounded severely burned at eye level. Bactericidal cream it made with plant extracts show very specific properties. In addition to treating injuries, this cream applied to the eye area, has a surprising side effect: to significantly boost the growth of eyelashes and eyebrows of his patients.

This discovery is the basis of our society. In 1948, Danielle Roches created the company bearing his name, focusing on the beauty and growth of eyelashes and eyebrows. Over the years, millions of women, including many movie stars and models took advantage of the benefits of Talika Lipocils and became unconditional Talika brand. Talika today strives to bring this expertise and know-how for all women.”

As you know I am crazy for anything related to growing the eyelashes, so I was eager to try this serum….here’s the skinny:

TALIKA Lipocils Expert Eyelash Conditioning Gel contains a complex of five plant and silk proteins to condition and support the densification of eyelashes. Additional natural ingredients provide enhanced curling and color intensification to the lashes, especially for those with light or not very dark lashes.

My first impression was that I loved the applicator, and that you could apply it directly to the lash line, and also comb it through the actual lashes like mascara.  I have been using it for a few weeks and I have seen amazing results.  I was already using a lash serum previously, but this one is WAY LESS irritating to my eyes.  I noticed with other serums that my eyelids were always pink (not an attractive look) so I could never really go without concealer because I looked sad/sick.  Since I’ve been using this the redness has gone away and they are getting longer, darker, and more curled!  YAY, all the things that they claim are actually TRUE!  Also, compared to other lash brands, I think this has an amazing price-point.  (I linked all the products below!)

How to use: Brush the gel up along the lashes starting at the roots before applying mascara. Use twice a day, preferably in the morning and evening, for 28 days, then use once per day.

Next up, and one of my favorite beauty hacks: EYE THERAPY PATCHES!

A miracle worker for the eyes! Say goodbye to fine lines, dark circles and puffiness with revolutionary, reusable eye patches. Eye Therapy Patches rejuvenate eyes in just 30 minutes with a revitalizing, restorative technology that uses a proprietary blend of ceramides, essential oils and peptides to instantly eradicate signs of aging. After just one use the appearance of inflammation, puffiness, fine lines and dark circles are notably reduced.

Are you in the “know” about eye patches?  The best way to smooth, brighten, and take away puffiness!  These are a supermodel and jetsetter secret, and now yours too!  What I think is so INNOVATIVE about these patches is the fact that you can re-use them up to three times.  I haven’t seen that with other eye patch brands, so you definitely get more bang for your buck!  Take these on the airplane with you, use them after a long night out, grab them for a special event you are prepping for….you get the idea!  I love these!

Lastly, the best way to scare your partner or kids are with these masks!  Hee hee, but in all honesty, these are amazing.  I haven’t used all of them yet, but I did try the hydrating and anti-aging masks, and my skin felt SO AMAZING!

Since I haven’t had the chance to try all of them, I wanted to give you a quick description of what each of them does.

TALIKA Bio-Enzymes Mask Hydrating is designed to reduce the sensation of skin dryness and tightness, leaving skin hydrated and soft.

TALIKA Bio-Enzymes Mask is specifically designed to brighten oily skin, reduce the appearance of pores and even the skin tone, targeting blemishes and other skin imperfections.

TALIKA Bio-Enzyme Brightening Mask is made with refreshing cellulose and uses a bio-enzyme process to give your skin a brighter look.

TALIKA Bio-Enzymes Anti-Aging Mask reduces the appearance of the signs of aging by targeting fine lines and skin tones.

TALIKA Bio Enzymes Mask After-Sun promotes the natural rehydration and soothing of skin damaged by sun, leaving it plumped and smooth with a delicate sensation of freshness and cooling.

I am really curious to use the after-sun mask,  nothing sounds more refreshing after a hot day outside!

Below you can see the items where you can find them in the US, and of course if you are in Europe I think you will have an even easier time finding them!  I have really enjoyed their innovation and performance, and I hope you like the tip!  Xx
