Eye Love Wednesday - Quo Brow Kit

Quo Brow Kit - $18 - contains everything you need to achieve brow greatness with ease including: 2 brow powders in medium and dark brown that can be used separately or combined together to create the perfect shade; a double-ended brush for easy application with an angled brush on one end and a spoolie brush on the other; along with a clear brow gel to finish the look and maintain the brow's shape all day.

It's a great kit that could be made even better with the addition of a light powder for  more colour mixing options - and totally perfect if they added an auburn powder for us gingers!

Available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.

This week I'm obsessed with... Lotus Aroma Youth Anti-Wrinkle Night Serum!

Love the idea of using a night time product on your skin but find that most night creams are too thick for your oily skin - or maybe your usual night cream isn't giving you all the results you want and are looking for something to boost it? Then check out:

Lotus Aroma Youth Anti-Wrinkle Night Serum - 30ml - $46 - smoothes out unevenness and rejuvenates the complexion thanks to a 100% natural formula rich in natural AHA's - made of citrus and maple sugar that coat and improve the skin; BHA's - extract from white willow bark that promotes cell renewal and impairs the skin's aging process; along with vitamin E-rich hyaluronic acid - moisturizes the skin deeply, filling lines and wrinkles for an even and rejuvenated complexion; Witch Hazel Floral Water tones and soothes; and  German chamomile extract - an exceptional skin revitalizing agent.

Just two or three drops at night on a clean face and neck every night and the result is skin that becomes visibly balanced, hydrated and more supple, rested, silky and glowing - and it can be used alone or in combination with your usual night cream.

Available at fine pharmacies and health food stores across Canada.

Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream For Oily Skin

Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream For Oily Skin - 30ml - $8.99 - in 6 shades: Fair, Light, Light/Medium, Medium, Medium/Deep and Deep - with an oil-free formula that provides the perfect amount of coverage to even skin tone, hide blemishes and keep skin shine free all day without clogging pores or looking cakey.
 
For most foundation-type products I would usually recommend applying with a brush, but this one goes on much nicer with your fingers - or sponge if you prefer - something about the formula gives it a much more natural and smooth finish when sponged on rather then brushed on! 

Available now at drug, grocery and mass retailers across Canada.

Available at Murale stores across Canada.
Avon True Color Cuticle Conditioner - 12ml - $8 - with a fast-absorbing formula containing vitamin E and evening primrose seed extract for instantly healthy looking nails - just brush on and massage into nails and cuticles.

Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca.
If you can resist cutting cuticles, that's what the experts always recommend but I'm a fan (and addicted) to cutting mine - so I look for something very precise that won't butcher my cuticles like:

Sephora Cut To The Point Cuticle Nipper - $30 - a professional-quality precision cuticle nipper crafted from salon-quality stainless steel for easy cleaning and sanitation. The handles feature fine-tuned tension to maximize grip for precise control, and the blade angle has been designed for precision cutting.

Available at Sephora and sephora.ca.

Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot

Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot - 30ml - $39.99 -  an intense moisture concentrate that works to deeply hydrate thirsty and dry skin for a moisture locked and plumper finish. 

The formula contains Dragons Blood - a sap found in the Croton Lechleri tree in the Amazon - which works to protect and heal the skin from all outside aggressiors while motivating skin cell regeneration as well as inhibiting inflammation and reducing redness; along with a 50% Hyaluronic solution - to instantly plump the appearance of the skin, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and soften and smooth skin for a radiant and younger-looking complexion.

It's super hydrating but also fairly light so can either be used directly on the skin (if you are oily to combination) or mixed with other products for a double shot of hydration and plumping!
