Allerna Hair Care – Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Correction
Let’s face it, winter weather is just the worst for anyone’s hair. I mean, as I type this, I know my hair literally feels crispy. Before you drown your sorrows in your toque try Allerna Hair Care’s Cavier CC Cream. Like it says on the bottle, it will provide your strands with then tiny but needed miracles. The Cavier CC Cream is a leave in product that provides moisture, shine, no tangles, softness, anti- breakage, heat protection, light hold, UV protection, manageability and most importantly strength. Let everyone be envious or your locks this winter, and get yourself a bottle!
Buxom – Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation
This light to medium coverage foundation comes in ten beautiful shades. The foundation is clinically proven to increase hydration, nourishment and brightness in your skin. Jam packed with Vitamin C, tamarind seed and marine algea, this makeup will actually better your skin, and protect it from that harsh cold. Did I mention it is SPF 30? Bonus!
Urban Decay – Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush
I am a firm believer in foundation brushes. I know there are a lot of people who love to use their hands, I just can’t do it. No way! If you’re like me, you are going to love this vegan blending brush. This dome –shaped brush allows you to buff and blur the foundation beautifully into the skin. The shape allows you to get into those under eye and nose crevices perfectly. This is great for all skin types, but adds that little extra glow on mature skin.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics – Nail Lacquer in Suspiria
Staying on tip of the 2014 Colour of the Year Trend, is OCC’s Nail Lacquer. The densely pigmented Suspiria shade is the perfect vibrant orchid shade. The best part about this lacquer is the short-drying time and the fact it will probably last on your nails for a good ten days. Could you ask for more?
Balenciaga – Rosabotanica Parfum
I originally picked up this perfume, purely for the bottle design! I am a big sucker for pretty bottles. Then I spritzed myself, and fell in love. With notes of citrus, experimental rose, fig leaf and white amber this scent will literally shove you into Spring.
Evolution of Smooth (EOS) Lip Balm in Blueberry Acai
I love these little balls of heaven! For one thing, they are damn easy to find in a hobo bag. These guys are also 95% organic. Rich in shea butter, vitamin E and jojoba oil, these little spheres will keep your lips soft all year round.
Boscia – Black Hydrating Gel
This product looks a little scary (the charcoal inside causes the black colour), but I promise the results are amazing. This refining gel will not only clarify your complexion but the texture of your skin as well. With ingredients such as artichoke leaf extracts, charcoal, glycolic acid, and vitamin C your skin will look brighter, tighter and blemish free!
Bobbi Brown – Smokey Eye Mascara
Add the drama where it’s needed, and do it with this mascara! Your lashes will look more full, stretched out and ridiculously black. It’s the perfect addition to the smoky eye, or great on its own.
Aesop – Fabulous Face Oil
Facial Oil is all the rage right now, so why not try one that really works. Aesop’s daily moisturizing botanical oil will freshen up your dull winter skin with just three tiny drops a day. It’s a non greasy formula that will balance out your skin tone, and leave the skin feeling hydrated. Apply three drops on cleansed and toned skin, and let the magic happen. Note: This is an all season product! Thus, totally worth the splurge!
MAC – Strobe Cream
I know I have mentioned the Strobe Cream before, but that’s because it is my all time favourite product ever! If you have amazing flawless skin, a couple dabs of this and you look like an angel. Mixed with your foundation of choice you will actually look airbrushed. This product is phenomenal and you must add this to your makeup bag. If you’re not completely sold on the product you can go to a MAC store and test it, or you can buy the travel size bottle for only $12.00 CAD!
