I was recently invited to preview Stila’s Spring 2019 releases, where I also had the opportunity to personally try out the products. After being pleasantly surprised by what I saw and tested out, I was left asking myself how it was that I hadn’t explored this brand in closer detail? Let’s just say that Stila is most definitely on my radar now.
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to the launch of the spectacular new Beauty Hall found in the recently renovated Holt Renfrew Ogilvy store in my hometown of Montréal, where I also there to discover a first of its kind in Canada: Guerlain’s Parfumeur Boutique — and I even had the opportunity to create my very own personalized Bee bottle. When it comes to unique and customized beauty, this feature ranks high up there and most definitely warrants a visit.
Living in a climate with such extremes (ridiculously hot & humid in Summer, bone-cold in Winter), my lips are always in need of hydration and there are usually anywhere from 2-4 lip balms in my makeup bag at any given time. There are times when I also want a spot of colour thrown in along with the hydration factor, and to that end Givenchy’s Le Rose Perfecto not only meets that need, but does it with some of the most bougie packaging out there. For 2019, the brand has just added to the range with several new shades … all utterly wearable and incredibly comfortable to boot.
For Spring 2019, YSL Beauty is serving up rosy freshness, perfectly captured with the Shimmer Rush Multi-Palette — brilliant hues that are just the thing to shake off the last bits of Winter. Oh, and for the record, I may have spent more time than usual admiring the outer case … can you blame me?
Finding one’s perfect foundation match ranks way up on the frustration scale, but hang tight because the future of makeup is here, and last Friday I had the opportunity to test that out with Lancôme’s Le Teint Particulier. For the first time ever, I can vouch that this truly is a custom made beauty product, as it’s not only created based on your own unique skin tone & preferences, but actually made right in front of you … plus you get to name it too!
