Now when you're at Murale, you can have your Cake (Beauty) and eat it too!

What does one do when one loves the beauty industry, loves natural products and sees a glaring absence in the market? Well if one is Heather Reier, founder of Cake Beauty - you just go to your kitchen whip up a bunch of fantastic smelling products and start a company! Okay it probably wasn't quite that easy but when I met with her a couple of weeks ago to celebrate the line's launch at Murale, she looked so polished and calm, she made me believe it could be!

We chatted about the origins of the Canadian company - back in 2003, Heather was a product junkie (we can relate to that) who was tired of putting junk on herself and wanted things with natural ingredients, that smelled and felt good. Since they didn't exist in the marketplace what else was a girl to do but make them herself - from this, Cake Beauty was born!

And who better to ask about is her must have products from her line - it took a little bit of prodding since a mother doesn't like to reveal her favourite but she finally admitted to a Satin Sugar Hair Powder addiction - it's a talc free dry shampoo which enables her to only have to wash her hair every 4 days, it adds lasting volume and can also be used as a body powder - Heather went so far as to say that it changed her life and she gets nervous when she gets down to less then half a bottle of it left! Her favourite new product is her new (and first) fragrance - Indulge - which she let me smell and I have to agree, it's delicious!

We can expect new and exciting things coming from Cake in the first half of the year including a twist on her fave dry shampoo product but if you are looking for gifts or want to try the Cake line now, here are a couple of great gift sets that you should check out:
Holiday Handful - 3 x 100ml - $36 - Includes Milk Made - whole vanilla milk and baked raspberry, Vanilla Snow Woman - sweet vanilla cream and UnSweet - un-coloured and un-scented - hand creams blended with shea & mango butters, whole milk, marshmallow extract and just the right amount of glycerin to lock in moisture and protect your winter-worn hands
Winter Wonderlips - 3 x 11ml - $30 - in: vanilla frost - creamy pearl with opalescent shine; pink icicle - sheer pink with diamond sparkle; and gold glimmer - glistening nude - a golden sheen trio of creamy and delectably flavoured lip gloss will nourish and hydrate lips giving you a wash of colour and loads of shine. Blended with natural emollients and infused with antioxidants to leave your lips smooth, shimmering and looking winter wonderful all season long.
You'll now find the Cake Beauty line at Murale and you can still find it at Sephora, and - and if you're shopping at Cake Beauty online, be sure and take advantage of the Topbox 30% off Promo Code - TOPBOX when checking out!

  1. They also carry them at EdenFantasys now! (You can get 15% off with code SP3) I ordered the hand cream trio a few days ago, it should be here tomorrow! I think I might go for the dry shampoo next, it sounds awesome.
