Apparently July 29 is National Lipstick Day, and my beauty-loving self couldn’t be happier! As a result, I couldn’t help but notice the amazing selection of lipstick options during my recent visit to The Loop Duty Free Montréal; I say options, because while lipstick will always be a beauty rock star, it now comes in so many new permutations and textures, with something to suit everyone’s tastes. All the luxury brands are duly represented at The Loop – some I’m actually not permitted to show (starts with a C and ends with an L), but rest assured that they’re most definitely available there, and even with the mid-priced brands you’ve got plenty of choices. But the very best part — especially for the beauty obsessed such as moi, is the fact that everything is at least 20% less than downtown retailers (with the exception of MAC which is at 15% less), and no tax. Say it with me: NO TAX.
Oh, and that’s Barry the Canadian Black Bear in the opening photo — what do think of the colour I chose for him? #noshame
TIP: travellers can also pre-order their purchases through The Loop’s website, then simply show up, pay & go!
Stay tuned to be “in The Loop” as I continue to explore this amazing store!
Lancôme’s Juicy Shakers are hands down THE most fun lippies

For the multi-taskers: lips & cheeks done with one product
Busted with handfuls of beauty booty
Goals: owning an entire wall of Armani lip options
Oh, and Armani’s entire collection of Lip Magnets are there too
Not to be outdone, some Guerlain love too
… then there’s Rouge in Love (I sense a theme here)
Couldn’t resist leaving my mark while testing Québec brewed Pur Vodka
