When things are labeled “natural” it can mean a number of different things. We’ve combed through the influx of these products and have come across a real gem – Micabella Cosmetics. All of their products – bronzers, eye shadows, lipstick, nail polish and mascara – consist of 100 per cent mica. Because of their earthly pedigree, we’ve found the products to be especially gentle on our eyes. The range of 80 shades (yes, 80) is enough to satisfy our need to constantly switch up our colour palettes. (more…)

We’re all about products that make you look great and take just seconds to apply. That’s why we’ve stocked up on the new VIP Bronze Expert Sun Glow Perfecting Brush by Terry. It delivers long-lasting radiance in a single step. With one click you’ve got a gorgeous sun-kissed glow. Click the brush once and dab it around your face wherever you need highlighting and then blend it by simply sweeping it back and forth across your skin.
The featherweight cream-gel is loaded with hyaluronic acid microspheres that blend into the skin, plumping the hollow areas and creating that perfect airbrushed effect.
Super easy to apply, quick and convenient, you’ll wonder what to do with all your free time in the morning.
Available at Sephora, Space NK and Barneys

Leave it to the minimalist master Calvin Klein to keep our beauty routine simple and streamlined. The CK Shimmer Palette works as a bronzer, highlighter, blush and eye shadow in one. Swirl the pearly shades together or layer individually to turn up the heat and make your skin glow.
Try patting the colour of your choice over a clear lipgloss to stretch out the possibilities of this palette. Or just toss it into your makeup bag and bust it out mid-lunch for a “touch-up” to feel all, you know, chic.
Available at Sephora throughout North America and Sears in Canada

You’re sitting on a patio enjoying a cocktail—and the stares from the cute guy at the next table when you realize he’s not staring at you, he’s staring at your makeup drip, drip, dripping down your face. We’ve all been there, but what’s a girl to do during the lazy hazy days of summer? The new Melt-Proof Makeup Collection from CARGO is a limited edition kit of long-wearing, water-resistant make-up and includes Better-than-waterproof Mascara, Melt-proof Bronzer and Melt-proof 3-in-1 Eye-Cheek-Lip Palette that doesn’t melt, smudge or run and provides the perfect dose of summer colour—think shimmering apricots.
Perfect for traveling, hitting the beach or lying poolside, this collection is super-easy to apply (finger-paints anyone) and made up of a mixture of emollients and waxes that create a water resistant barrier and provide increased staying power.
Available at Sephora and Beautymark
