Fragrant Friday - Guess Dare

Inspired by sexy, daring 70s icons like Charlie's Angels, Bond Girls and Peggy Lipton in the Mod Squad is:

Guess Dare -  50ml EDT - $60, 100ml EDT - $75
a green and fruity floral with top notes of kumquat, lemon blossom and pear blossom; heart notes of cactus blossom  surrounded with wild rose and elegant jasmine; and base notes of exotic coconut accords, subtle blond wood and musk.

I don't love the fragrance, I'm not a fan of the coconut accords but I sure do love the pale pink bottle with rose gold rivets and cap - it even comes with it's own necklace because who doesn't love a well accessorized bottle!

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Guess retail stores across Canada.

In My Shower - Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash

Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash with NutriumMoisture - 710ml - $7.47 - a super-mild wash that contains almost 25% more Glycinate, an ultra-mild cleanser primarily found in premium face products, offers amazing lather and has 10x more moisturizers than other leading body washes.

I tend to mistrust any product that promises me softer, smoother skin after just one use but in this case it's actually true! I felt my skin before showering with it the first time, used it and then felt my skin again after the shower but before applying any moisturizer and my skin not only felt great, it also didn't feel dry or tight. If it only had some sort of fruity scent to it, it would be perfect!

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

Eye Love Wednesday - Make Up For Ever The Ultimate Jet Black Liners

Make Up For Ever goes beyond black this January with two new liners that offer the purest, deepest, richest blacks ever - in either a matte liquid or precision pen formula for the boldest, blackest lines!

Ink Liner - $27 -combines professional precision with easy handling to master any line - from ultra-fine to graphically bold and everything in between. With a flexible, ergonomically designed, calligraphy pen tip that perfectly renders the lightest stroke to produce intense, super-matte and quick drying black lines on the skin with flawless wear and hold. Just dip the felt tip into the bottle and apply along the lash line for the perfect amount of transfer-proof colour.

Graphic Liner - $29 - with an ultra-fine tip that makes it super easy to control, so even a spaz like me can draw a straight line with it! The felt tip glides along the skin creating a clean and long lasting line of carbon black colour with a glossy plastic finish. If liquid liner is new to you or still scares you I definitely recommend giving this one a try - it's very user friendly!

Available January at Sephora, sephora.ca and Make Up For Ever boutiques across Canada.
