July Favorites: Garnier, Mary Kay, Marcelle,Redken and more!

  1. Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil
    I'm currently obsessed with Argan oil. It's light oil can can be used on extensions, natural or relaxed hair. I use it on my ends to keep them moisturized.

  2. philosophy
    purity made simple
    foaming 3-in-1 cleansing gel for face and eyes
    I've never used a cleansing gel for my face & eyes before. Using a universal product like this was a nice change. I may purchase this product after I finish my sample.

  3. Mary Kay lash love waterproof mascara in Black
    Waterproof mascara is a blessing because its extremely hot in Canada. I would recommend that you have a good waterproof makeup remover so you don't destroy your lashes.

  4. Marcelle Climatik Outdoor Lip Balm SPF 30
    Every girl needs lip balm with SPF. Perfect for days when you don't feel like wearing anything.

  5. Garnier Fructis Style Pure Clean Smoothing Cream
    This is a must have for anyone who has frizzy hair. I almost used the whole tube on my vacation. It definitely defined my curls.After you wash your hair put a dime sized amount in and work it throughout your hair.

  6. Clear Hair & Scalp Therapy Total Care Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner
    I should have named these as 6. Not 6 & 7. Sorry! I used this product straight for 7 days on vacation and loved it. I couldn't stop smelling my hair. My favorite part was the fact that my hair felt very moisturized after. 
Have you tried any of these products?

Canadian Face of the Day featuring Annabelle & Marcelle

Happy Canada Day!

To Celebrate it's only right to share a look I did featuring Canadian brand Annabelle & Marcelle.
I shared this look in a previous post but now I will share details on what I used!

I have reviewed a lot of Annabelle & Marcelle products on my blog in the past. If someone asks me which products are definate must haves, I would recommend: Annabelle Smoothies & Marcelle Waterproof eyeliners.

The smoothies can be used as over the eye as a highlighter, shadow or liner. Once they set, they don't budge. To top it off they are crease free & waterproof.

The color I used is called melonade. I use it in my inner corners daily. I also blend it out as a highlighter.

 The waterproof eyeliners comes in 16 colors!
I chose Electric Blue because it compliments my skin tone.


Happy Canada Day!

Annabelle and Marcelle Beauty Premier Party!

A few weeks ago Annabelle and Marcelle Cosmetics came to Toronto for their beauty premier for Spring 2012. I'm lucky enough to have gone to several beauty event in the past but this one was truly amazing. There was makeup, food, drinks and most importantly engagement from Marcelle/Annabelle with us(bloggers).

I loved how there was different modules set up to learn about each launch. The most popular table was the make your own lip gloss table. This idea was purely genius!  Every girl Well I wish I could design my own lip gloss and I'm ecstatic that I got that opportunity to do so. We were given two bottles of our special concoctions.

The beautiful Robin from Fashionsta514 was at the table explaining the whole process.
Look at how long the line got at one point!
Close up of the color wheel.
We had to pick a minimum of 4 colors to mix our lip glosses.
Another amazing idea was offering us makeup on a platter!
I can't tell you how tempting it was not to empty it all in your purse..LOL

On to the launches for Spring 2012!
Each product set up was accomanied by an Annbelle/Marcelle employee. 
It was really cool to get your answers answered on the spot.
BB Cream in 2 colors: Light to medium & medium to dark!
Marcelle Gene Youth Skincare: Day & Night formula!
Annabelle Bigshow Lipgloss: Light & Sheer Gloss!
Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover that helps your lashes!
Marcelle Xtension Plus which curls & separates!
Check out some pictures from the event:

I snapped this HILARIOUS picture of Tamara. I just had to share :p

Marcelle Cosmetics Favs: Hydra-C Ultra-Light Matifying Fluid & Soothing Cleansing Water

As a Canadian Beauty Blogger I love highlighting Canadian beauty products. Marcelle is not a stranger to Spiced Beauty! I've been blogging about them since early 2010.

It is been a pretty "hot" fall and I'm still OILY!!

Lovely Isabelle from Marcelle read my mind when she sent me the Hydra-C Ultra-Light Matifying Fluid!

Since I don't wear foundation daily I really needed to invest in a GOOD matifier!

I remember when I tried it out the first time. For some reason I thought it would be dry like a primer but it wasn't. It was wet! I freaked out! Within seconds it dried to matte finish.

Definitely a recommend if your a oily blogger like myself LOL

Good Stuff: The formula rich in antioxidants, vitamins C, E and B5, aloe vera and cucumber extract. 
Last but not least Marcelle Soothing Cleansing Water!

I wear liner & mascara daily so removal is a serious issue for me.. especially after a LONG day!

This was my first time using Cleansing water and I'm a fan. I'm so surprised how water can clean off all my makeup even the waterproof stuff!!

I don't have to rub my eyes profusely like the oil based removers. It`s funny but once the oil gets into your eyes..its over..

My method - I soak a cotton pad with Soothing Cleansing Water and saturate it on the lid. If I have more time I do a extra foam cleanse, if not, since its a soothing water I just go to bed.

Good Stuff: Rinse-free formula that micro-emulsifies impurities and waterproof make-up without irritating skin, gentle for even the driest and most sensitive complexions.

How I get long luscious lashes! What is your favorite mascara?

Ever since I was 13 years old I was obsessed with lashes. I got my free AVON mascara and never turned back! I have to add that after 12 years of mascara wearing I still have healthy, full & curly lashes that I'm not embarrassed to sport with without mascara as well.

I personally like layering my mascaras. It's a process that starts off with a light coat of a lengthening mascara. My current choice is CARGO 3 Triple Action Mascara as a base coat. I let it try fully then I apply two coats of Marcelle Power Volume Mascara. Lastly finish off with CARGO 3 Triple Action Mascara on the tips.

It's a tedious process but I achieve lashes that look exactly like falsies! So my question for you is do you layer your mascaras?

The Marcelle Mascara was sent to spiced beauty for review purposes. I wont the Cargo mascara in a contest.

FOTD: My new easy look

My new easy look is quite simple! I would explain it as neutral with a kick :) The kick is colored liner..

I work early like 8:00am so days when I feel like wearing makeup,I need a effortless look which requires no touch up.

I used a black eye liner to create a winged tip on my upper lid. Personally for weekdays I feel liquid liner is the best. It's quick and USUALLY can be done without mess. My favorite picks are Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner & Eve Pearl Smudgeproof eyeliner.

Then I follow up with 2-3 coats of mascara. Sometimes I mix Mascara because I like the combined look. My favorites are Cargo triple action mascara & the new Marcelle Masacara.

On my bottom lid I use MAC Rave pearlglide eyeliner in Rave. I love this purple!! The staying power is amazing. Sometimes I add white eyeliner to my waterline depending on how much time I have.

To finish it off I always highlight my inner corners using Smashbox Eyebeam double extender brightener. This is amazing.. I haven't had to buy anything else after this.

I hope this post is descriptive enough. Feel free to leave me any questions you have :)

Marcelle Lux Metallic & Lux Diamond Liquid Eyeliners Review

I was recently sent some Marcelle products to try out:
Cobalt Blue, Jade, Ultraviolet, Aqua,
Silver & Pure Gold.

Lux Metallic liquid eyeliner lets you experience glimmer and sparkle never like never before! Infused with thousands of tiny, little mirrored flecks that reflect light and literally brighten
your eyes.

-Thin applicator which is good for precision lining
-Hypoallergenic and perfume-free
-Great lasting power

-They need to be applied more than once to be vibrant

This is a swatch of ultraviolet with two swatches. I love this color on my skin tone :)


Lux Diamond liquid eyeliner is formulated with a gel filled with glamorous sparking flecks that shine as brightly as quartz; perfect for adding a touch of long lasting scintillating brilliance to your look.

Highly versatile, you can use it in a myriad different ways! Colour stays true, doesn’t streak or flake and its clever micro applicator brush allows for the most precise and accurate application.

Doesn't silver look gorgeous!! These liners remind me of Annabelles Glitterama Liquid Liner! Click here to check out my review.  They`re both pigmented. Also you`re able to control the amount of glitter that comes out.

Tip: Apply pencil eyeliner under these colors to make them pop :D

Visit a Canadian retailer and pick up one of these babies for only $11.95.

My question for you is: Would you be interested in trying these?

Marcelle Lux Gloss Sheer - Nectar Review

Marcelle is the cosmetics and skin care brand that offers every woman high quality, effective and affordable products. Hypoallergenic and perfume-free; women of all ages believe in Marcelle products.

I was sent Marcelle Lux Gloss Sheer - Nectar to review for you girlies! First off I've never tried any Marcelle products, so this gloss was a great introduction.

Marcelle Lux Gloss Sheer is an absolute gem that will illuminate your pout with a touch of glittering glamour.
  • Easy to wear, Lux Gloss Sheer gives your lips that delicious wet look shine while also revitalizing them. Each shade provides the sheerest of coverage and the most brilliant shimmering iridescence.
  • Exceptionally comfortable, Lux Gloss is infused with a unique Vita-Lip complex, a combination of lipopeptid-based amino acids proven to stimulate collagen production and provide optimum hydration. Your lips are fuller, smoother and plump.
Marcelle Lux gloss comes in 7 different colors and are suitable for all skin tones!

 This gloss is very smooth not cakey or clumpy, even though it has shimmer! I hate products which make your lips feel like your rubbing pieces of sand paper together!! LOL
Swatch of nectar with one swipe
It's really easy to build up color because it's sheer! I also have to add that it photographs beautifully :)

Tip from Marcelle:

For natural-looking lips, use Lux Gloss Sheer over nude lips. If you’re looking for a splash of glamour, simply apply a coat of Lux Gloss over your lipstick.

This swatch was done on nude lips

Overall this is definitely a product I would buy.
