Balmshell Me Baby!

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

I just love Balmshell and their fun and funky ‘floating art’ lipglosses (article). Now you can enjoy THREE of these magnificent products in the “Holts-aholic” gift set ($59.99 CAD).

With the emphasis on retail therapy, Balmshell have included three lip-luscious shades in this set. Their most popular shade Shop-aholic, a baby pink, is the main feature, with the artwork resembling a delightful Holt Renfrew store front. Thus it is aptly named “Holts-aholic”.

It also includes Shoe Fetish, a sheer fuchsia shade and Curse of the Purse, a neutral peach shade.

What a fantastic gift for that BBF of yours that adores a little gloss or… is a shopaholic.

They are available at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada.

Find Your Inner Balmshell

Friday, October 20th, 2006

Jennifer and Fiona Lees from Toronto were in the search of the perfect lipgloss – aren’t we all! They decided if they couldn’t find it, they would develop their own. After years of working with a cosmetic manufacturer they developed a formula using only the finest ingredients to produce a high-shine, moisturizing lip-gloss.

What really caught my eye when I saw this product is the packaging. Balmshell has developed the most unique, creative packaging, I think I have ever seen. Each of the 10 glosses has its own floating art story inside – kind of like those pens you can get.

Sheer Hot Cherry Red ~ for those fabulous nights on the town!

Illustration description
This is a story of how a Balmshell prepares for a night out on the town. The story begins with a woman wrapped in her favorite plush terry cloth towel as she is getting ready for the big night. She then glides behind a changing screen and when she comes out, “Ta-Da!” she is effortlessly dressed and ready. She looks into the mirror and thinks to herself, “Darling you look fabulous!”

Each amusing story aims to celebrate the inner goddess that exists in all women.

When finished with your lip gloss unscrew the “float art” top and screw it into the keychain component provided in the packaging.

So far these delightful art glosses are only available in Canada and the UK but Balmshell will be opening their online store in the next little while so keep your eyes peeled.

$25.00 CDN
Available at Holt Renfrew
