Kester Black Nail Polish in Bougainvillaea
First off, for all of you that havent hear of Kester Black, shame on you. This Aussie nail polish brand is pretty rad. Not only is it cruelty free and vegan, it’s also free from formaldehyde and camphor! You want to paint your nails now right?
The bright purple shade, called Bougainvillaea is perfect for summer, and pairs well with monotone and floral pieces. At the moment Kester Black is only available to Australian and New Zealand residents.
Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner & Cleanser
Popular since the 1960’s, Kiehl’s Calendula is an alcohol-free formula that is extra soothing and nourishing on the skin. Created with real, whole flowers that are hand picked, and induvidually added to each bottle this toner is great for any problem areas (i.e. acne, oily skin). This toner has become one of Kiehls iconic products, and deserves a place on your shelf as does the foaming cleanser.
This all-natural deodorant spray can be used for both women and men and can be spritzed as often as desired. We love that it’s a great alternative to the very small range of deodorant on the market right now and it’s rich botanical scent. It is created with eleven essential oils that help to neautralise underarm odour and keep you feeling fresh all day. Warning, it will not stop you from sweating which is totally natural for you body to do; it takes some getting used to, but it’s awesome once you do.
Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Cosmopop
If you havent hopped on the coral lips band wagon, it’s time to get a move-on. Cosmopop is a perfect creamsicle shade that provides optimal pigment and colour. The soft orange will look super sultry with a sunkissed tan.
Two Faced Pardon My French Set
I love makeup sets for two reasons. Firstly, it’s a great way to try out a whole bunch of products. Secondly, you get way more for your money and it usually comes in some pretty cute packaging. The Two Faced, Pardon My French set is perfect for creating that fresh summer makeup look. The set includes, Bonjour Soleil Eyeshadow Palatte (9 beautiful shades included), Lash Injection Extreme Volume Tubing Mascara, Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black, Shadow Insurance, and an exclusive makeup bag.

Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment 1 oz
This is literally the only spot treament I have used, and seen amazing results right away. This solution provides the highest level of sulfer that aids in the vanishing of blemishes and the prevention of future breakouts. This is by far the best product I have ever purchased!
MAC Pigment in Blue Brown
This beautiful pigment takes on a soft brown with subtle glimmers of peralescent blue and teal. This pigment can be used to create either a sheer all over shadow or it can layered for a more intense smokey eye. For pigments, a little goes along way so it should last you a good while. Bonus: Some of the MAC Pigments now come in a travel size. The travel size retails for $12.00 CAD in store.
BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle Guava/ Moonstone
Cream/mousse blushers are my favourite for summer! BECCA’s beach tint is a mousse like formula that provides, staying power a beautiful pop of colour and even a luminous highlighter to create that flawless flushed look. The Guava/Moonstone shade (coral shade with flecks of gold) is perfect for the summer heatwave headed our way.
