As far as concealers go, finding one with the right consistency tends to be tricky. Oily skin favours a lighter blend, while those with a dry complexion crave a little extra moisture. We bet that Benefit Boi-ing can please both parties, and then some. While the texture is certainly creamy, it’s light to the touch and dries quickly – leaving a velvety smooth veil on the skin. Don’t be fooled by its lightweight texture, this product delivers flawless coverage. (more…)

If art was your favourite subject in school, we have a product that will totally satisfy your inner artist. Lise Watier Couleur Folle is loose powder eye shadow packed with shimmering pigments – ideal for a big night out that demands major impact. But what makes it so darn special is its ability to transform. While the powder is lovely worn on its own, once mixed with the Métamorfix liquid, it turns into a bold, long lasting eyeliner.
We’re crazy about the new shades, Folie Aqua and Folie Ciel, which, despite how bright they appear, look surprisingly pretty and soft when applied.
Available at Sears in Canada and Naimes Beauty Centre in the U.S.

When it comes to lip gloss, we don’t ask for much. In fact, we’re happy to find one that provides our lips with ample shine, in a flattering colour, and if it happens to stick around after an espresso or two that’s a bonus. Darphin Lip Gloss meets all of our requirements, and a few more. Each of the three shades is pretty, and made to enhance your natural lip colour. We love layering it over our lipstick for a beautiful shine.
Loaded with healthy ingredients, like rosemary, soy extract and vitamin E, this gloss works hard to keep lips soft and healthy. The sweet and subtle scent is a big draw. Plus, the dainty little vessel with the signature gold lid amps up the luxe factor in our makeup bag.

As far as moisturizers go, when we see the words jojoba and cocoa butter printed on the label we get a little excited. Bonus points if they start listing vitamins. So, Olay Quench Mousse-Deep Moisture – with Aquacurrent Science technology – tends to win us over quite effortlessly. After revamping the formula of their incredibly successful moisturizer, Quench, they’ve gone the extra mile by marrying portability and lightweight application. For girls who loathe applying heavy cream but demand intense moisture, all the benefits from the original lotion are here. It’s especially handy for tossing in your gym bag, as there won’t be any spillage or bursting, and it dries surprisingly quickly after application.
