Saying Goodbye

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Seven years ago I started Lipstick Powder N Paint, the very first beauty blog in Canada. It soon turned into the best full-time job a gal crazy about beauty could ever ask for. But, all good things must come to an end, and, it is with a sad heart that I tell you that I have decided to close Lipstick Powder N Paint.

Without your encouragement and support, Lipstick Powder N Paint would not have become one of the most popular beauty blogs in North America – thank you.

Through the site, I have had the opportunity to test the very best beauty products from around the globe, attend amazing press events, meet celebrities, travel, and my fave, create my own MAC Cosmetics eyeshadow. Will I miss all this excitement? Oh yeah! But, who knows what is around the corner.

I can promise you that this won’t be the last time you hear of Lesley Mirza. :)

Hugs to you all!

Target Opens Stores In Western Canada

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Target Coquitlam

In May 2011, I was one of the lucky peeps invited to join Target in Chicago for their press conference, announcing to Canada that they would indeed be coming to Canada in 2013. I am a huge “Tar-jay” fan and was so excited, but also wasn’t sure if I could wait TWO WHOLE YEARS to shop on this side of the border. 

The smart folk at Target knew we needed a little taste to keep us going and set up the Jason Wu for Target pop-up shop in Toronto early last year. I shopped my little heart out that day, I can tell you!

Well, Lipstick Powder N Paint readers, I am thrilled to tell you that the wait is over. Yes, Target is in Western Canada! (more…)

Spa Week by WaySpa image

Spa Week by WaySpa is coming to the East Coast this spring, offering Torontonians access to the largest spa & wellness marketing event in the history of the spa industry. This North American phenomenon will be running from April 15 – 21, allowing consumers to enjoy luxury spa packages from various spas across the GTA for just $50!

Since its North American inception in 2004, Spa Week Media Group has been a true pioneer in the spa and wellness industry. Spa Week has made it possible for millions of people across North America to experience the healing and therapeutic benefits of the spa with its Spring and Fall Events’ affordable $50 treatments. Following in America’s footsteps, Spa Week by Wayspa plans to play a major role in opening the Canadian spa world to the masses while diminishing its privileged and exclusive reputation. Yay!

Sadly, I am unable to attend as I now live on the West Coast :( , but I want you to. So, I’m giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky reader!

Find out how to enter below.
