The Loop Duty Free Montréal Father’s Day Edit

 

The month of June is pretty much total madness here in Montréal, as the entire city breaks out with a major case of Formula 1 fever — thankfully this year, even the weather cooperated. Once that’s done with, we jump right into Father’s Day … which brings me to my recent visit to The Loop Duty Free Montréal and how pleasantly surprised I was to discover so many options specifically geared for those special guys in our lives. Of course, this also means you really have zero excuse for not picking up a Father’s Day gift, even if travelling. Best part: you’ll be purchasing at a discount with no added tax. Dad will be so proud.

TōN Cosmetics · The Nudes

 

Heads up my beauties, because there’s a new lipstick player in town and you’ll want to pay attention. Created by the Barillaro sisters (Maria & Vicki) right here in my hometown of beautiful Montréal, the concept behind TōN Cosmetics is simple yet positively genius: to decode the beauty world and help you find your perfect colour match. The breakout collection is centred around a ‘nude’ theme and as we all know, finding one’s neutral sweet spot is not always easy … until now, that is.

Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection

 

The latest release from Urban Decay is a collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. With packaging depicting his artwork and colours inspired by his works, the products feature brand new and exclusive shades and what’s more, all are absolutely wearable too. By the way, the 3 palettes (eyeshadows & blush) have an extra unique feature: they all have a ‘hook’ built into the back so you can hang them up. Now that’s what I call beauty truly imitating art.

Real Techniques · Spring 2017 Launches

 

Real Techniques, the makeup brushes created by Pixiwoo beauty gurus Sam & Nicola Chapman, have come out with new releases for 2017 with the goal of making your makeup application even easier than before, and at a price that won’t make your wallet want to run away in fear. What’s more, several of these brushes are actually good enough to give their higher-end counterparts a run for their money. Nothing like good old competition to level the playing field.
