Eye Love Wednesday - Beautycounter Color Define Brow Pencil

Beautycounter Color Define Brow Pencil - $29 - in 3 shades: Light, Medium and Dark - define brows so they appear thick and natural, yet polished - perfect for when you need to fill in gaps or even out color - they go on smoothly and blend easily with the built-in brush wand.

I tend to mostly use brow powders because I usually find brow pencils to be either too hard with no pigmentation or too soft and won't draw a proper line. These ones are Goldilocks approved and just right - firm enough that you can draw precise lines while still having enough give for the colour to be deposited correctly!

Available online and through independent consultants - check out www.beautycounter.com for more info.

This week I'm obsessed with... Sun Bum Beach Formula 3 In 1 Leave In!

Sun Bum Beach Formula 3 In 1 Leave In - 118ml - $19.99 - a hot weather must-have with a lightweight, humidity resistant formula that instantly penetrates into the hair shaft to detangle, condition, and protect while enhancing hair's natural body all without weighing it down. It also protects hair against heat appliances and chemical damage, delivering instant repair and adding elasticity to dry, damaged and frizzy hair; slows colour fading and extends healthy luster; prevents split ends; and shields hair from sun and wind damage.

And unlike some leave-in formulas that are total greasy crap in my fine hair, it really is a weightless formula that doesn't make hair look oily or dirty so can be used in any hair type!

Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.

GOSH Lumi Drops - for a lit from within glow!

GOSH Lumi Drops - 15ml - $17 - in Vanilla, Peach and Bronze - brighten up with a liquid highlighter that dresses the skin in an illuminating veil of beautiful radiance and enhances the complexion with a shimmery finish from reflecting pearl pigments - as if light is  coming from within. 

They brighten up any look and highlight your most beautiful features easily - use for strobing with a few drops where the sun would naturally hit your face - including the bridge of the nose, tip of the chin, center of the forehead, cupid’s bow, brow bones and cheekbones or use alone for a radiant all-over finish. I find it hard to use all over because you need such a small amount that it was hard to evenly spread it so I mix a tiny bit of Vanilla (because I'm pale, if you're darker go with the Bronze) with my moisturizer or bb cream and it really does add a great glow!

Available now exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.

Mascara Monday - Lise Watier Dramatique Curl Mascara

Lise Watier Dramatique Curl Mascara - $27 - a high tech mascara that curls lashes for a star look.
The curve of the brush and the precise bristle placement guarantee an amplified effect and curve the  lashes for an intensely dramatic gaze.
It takes 2 coats to make it curl - you can actually see the curl on the right eye - I just did one coat on the left - it makes them nice and fluttery but no curl.
For my taste, 2 coats makes it too clumpy, you get the curl but more thickness then suits me, especially for during the day - I'll stick to one coat and a lash curler!

Available now at Lise Watier counters across Canada.
