comfortable finish.

I am loving this formula - I find cream blushes much easier to apply, build and sculpt with while powder blushes have a softer looking finish - with this one I get the both of both worlds - genius!

Fusion Beauty SculptDiva Contouring & Sculpting Blush - $31 - in 4 shades: Crave, Cherub, Gossip, Haute - a silky cream to powder blush that glides on effortlessly for the most natural flush of colour. Infused with rose bud extracts, it helps to reduce the appearance of pores on cheeks and hydrates with advanced skin conditioners while delivering a concentrated dose of AmpliFat, a marine concentrate of a special sea fern that increases fatty acid storage helping replace lost natural volume in the skin - for visibly firmer, more youthful looking cheeks in 28 days. Just be careful to keep the blush closed when not in use and make sure you here the click when you close the container so you know it's totally shut - air will dry these suckers out in a hurry!

Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush - $34 - in 5 shades: Rosewater - rose, Water Lily - vibrant rose, Water Blossom - pink violet, Shimmering Lotus - golden pink, Water Poppy - vibrant coral red - that bring a sheer wash of colour to the cheeks while creating a rejuvenated effect. With a gel formula that cools on contact and blends seamlessly into the skin to create a luminous, healthy-looking glow. The oil-free, water-based formula goes on crystal clear, allowing the pure pigments and pearls to be dispersed evenly and blend in seamlessly, giving the skin a fresh, smooth, and supple appearance.My favourite part is the mesh-touch colour dispenser which makes it easy to pick up just a bit of product at a time with either your fingers or brush so you end up with a luminous finish and not a glob of colour!

Fragrant Friday - Elizabeth Arden Always Red

Elizabeth Arden introduces a new fragrance that celebrates the New York state of mind - boldly living out load, making your own rules and leading the in crowd:

Elizabeth Arden Always Red - 50ml EDT - $60, 100ml EDT - $82, Red Drops Souffle - 200ml - $48 - a luxurious floriental with top notes of vibrant blood orange, luscious red plum and passion fruit; heart notes of jasmine sambac, pink freesia and velvet rose petals; and base notes of praline, mahogany woods and red amber.

It smells so different from any other EA fragrance I have ever tried that I never would have guessed it is one of theirs. I find Arden fragrances to be either really light - like the Green Tea collection - or really strong - like Red Door - Always Red falls pleasantly in the middle - Goldilocks would approve! It has a little too much floral to it for my taste but it is a lovely smelling fragrance and I have smelled it on other people and it made me wish that I could do florals!

Available now at Jean Coutu and London Drugs for the 50ml, Shoppers Drug Mart and Hudson's Bay for the 100ml and Hudson's Bay for the Souffle.
