Show your Canada Day pride with Kiss, Electoplast, Good Luck Sock and MAC!

It's almost time for our big birthday which you should spend in whichever celebratory pursuit will make you feel the most Canadian - paddle a canoe, watch some fireworks, have a few drinks on the patio - but whatever you do, dress it up with some patriotic Canadian pride!
Obviously a tattoo is the way to go if you want to show true patriotism, but those deathly afraid of needles (yes, me) can take the easy (and much less painful) way out with Kiss Body Tattoos - $4.97.

Available now at Walmart stores across Canada.
Elastoplast Limited Edition O Canada Assorted Bandages - $4.99 - with 40 strips featuring 9 classically Canadian designs so you can deck out all your scrapes and scratches in patriotic red and white - no boo boos? no worries - they also make for great Nelly approved face and body decor!

Available now for a limited time at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
Do Canadian have the coolest (and hottest) PM ever? Yes, we do! Part of that is down to his love of a funky pair of socks like these Good Luck Sock Canada Maple Leaf Socks - $13 - in size 5-9 and 7-12 - where you can show how much you love Canada (and be Justin's twinsie) with these Canadian themed knitted cotton/poly socks featuring a maple leaf print.

Available online at www.goodlucksock.com.

And of course there is nothing more patriotic then a nice bold maple leaf red lip like from our very own MAC Proud To Be Canadian Lipstick - $21 - true red (matte) - embracing 150 years of nationhood with a specially packaged lipstick in truest red that embraces their homegrown start in a Toronto salon in 1984 to sharing fearless artistry in over 150 countries around the world, proving they're as proud as ever to be Canadian!

Available now at MAC stores across Canada and online at www.maccosmetics.ca.

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops - 15ml - $52 - in 3 new shades: Halo - holographic effect, Blossom - soft pearlescent pink, Rose Gold - warm pink - that can be used to create a buildable highlight - use them alone for a light reflective strobing even on top of powder or add them to your favorite liquid foundation or skincare product for an all-over glow. Or you can do it the easy, lazy way that I do it, just dab a few small drops on bare skin after moisturizing but before foundation and as you apply your foundation with a brush or sponge it will automatically mix the illuminator in - no extra work required!

They're formulated with a high concentration of ultra-fine pearl particles that produce a lit-from-within glow without ever appearing too glittery or overdone. As an added benefit, they contain a  nourishing trio of jojoba, sunflower and mimosa  to soften, moisturize and plump skin. Each weightless, silky drop diffuses light and imparts a soft-focus look that helps blur out skin imperfections, such as fine lines and scars for a perfected, lustrous finish - the more drops you use, the more luminosity you’ll get, allowing you to customize your glow.

Available now at Sephora and sephora.ca.
