Mai Beauty - a Canadian line to love!

Mai Beauty is the brainchild of 26 year old Canadian, Maija Reisenauer, a young perfumer with a passion for design and quality cosmetics.  She was having a hard time finding cosmetics that weren't either too granola or too corporate.  She wanted the corporate look and quality with the organic attention to ingredients.  Since there didn't seem to be any middle ground she decided to create it herself and Mai Beauty was born.  Her items are free of harmful chemicals, preservatives and certified by PETA to be fully cruelty-free while still having a youthful and glamourous look.

This is my favourite part of her line.  The formula is mineral based and super creamy.  The colour is rich and it didn't change on me during the day at all.  If you are looking to rock the orange trend, order yourself "olive", you won't be disappointed!  I also found them to be very moisturizing so all around, a good lipstick experience!

Lipsticks are $20 each and come in the 10 colours shown here.

If sheer is more your thing, the same range of colours come in a lip gloss formula.  I haven't actually tried it so I can't speak to how intense or subtle the shades actually are.

Lip glosses are $18 each

And of course there is a fragrance line! It comes in two signature fragrances:  Sweet and Spice.  Meant to be worn alone or layered together.  I am partial to the Sweet, while Christelle liked Spice, go figure!

78ml - $45 each

The scents also come in a perfume oil roll on set - half sweet/half spice - yours to experiment with and create the perfect scent for you!

5 x 5ml - $32/set

As well, the Sweet and Spice scents can be found in her line of bubble bath and body lotion!

Bubble Bath - 250ml - $18each
Body Lotion - 250ml - $20each

All products are available online to order - go to to check it out!
