This week I'm obsessed with... Dermablend Compact Setting Powder!

Dermablend Compact Setting Powder - $34 - a pressed silky, micronized finishing powder that  locks in makeup to keep it from smudging and helping it last up to 16 hours.

Unlike some "translucent" powders that can add a whitish cast to the skin or turn  orange when applied, this one goes on clear and does an amazing job of mattifying the complexion to leave skin looking flawless. 

My best recommendation is to chuck the sponge unless you don't wear foundation and are just using it to mattify - if you also want to set your makeup use a big fluffy brush instead, or if using it on the go, a travel brush - otherwise the sponge tends to move your makeup around while applying the powder.

Available now at select drugstores across Canada including Shoppers Drug Mart.

Skin is perfected with Guerlain Blurring Active Base!

Guerlain Blurring Active Base - 30ml - $52 - a makeup primer with an ultra-thin, non-greasy texture that allows the skin to breathe while prolonging makeup hold - while also doing so much more...

It offers: a blurring effect with a 2-in-1 action that instantly blurs the appearance of pores while refining the texture of the skin over time thanks to the PoreControl technology;

a mattified complexion to makeup application easier and last longer with silica beads that absorb serum throughout the day for a matte, shine-free complexion;

and protects skin with UrbanProtect Complex - which has antioxidant properties similar to those of vitamin E to fight pollution and protect the skin by targeting free radicals.

Mascara Monday - Zorah Mascara Volume & Care

Zorah Mascara Volume & Care - $27 - offers high definition and a false lash effect with an easy to apply, fast drying formula.
With an hourglass shaped brush that has supple and fine bristles at the tip that surround and separate even the tiniest lash, while firm and thick bristles at the base of the brush shape lashes
and intense black colour from pure mineral pigments it has a unique formula, enriched with organic argan oil that surrounds and treats each lash to give it breathtaking volume and perfect definition.
It adds lots of nice volume and definition without being the least bit clumpy but I must admit, what I love most about it is it smells like strawberry jello - no, seriously!

Available at select natural food stores across Canada and online at zorahbiocosmetiques.com.
