Like most things in life, makeup can become a little bit of an addiction. Personally, I am always trying to find the latest, the greatest, and the most talked about products but it can be a massive task to track down certain brands and products in Canada.
Sometimes, the anticipation over the latest Milani lipstick is so strong that I find myself paying crazy shipping costs and biting the bullet on the exchange rate. Well, those days are now far behind me as I have discovered a one-stop-shop for all of my favourite unattainable brands like Milani, NYX, e.l.f, the Balm, Real Techniques & more!
I recently had a chance to shop those brands and I went a bit crazy when I saw how vast, up to date and inexpensive the options were. So I thought I would share the latest products to join my collection, some of which I have been coveting for months and months.
Milani was the first brand that caught my attention and I may have done a little happy dance when I saw how large and well stocked the display was! They had every product that I have been dying to try and in every shade option possible.
I ended up purchasing the Milani Conceal & Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation & Concealer in the shade 01 Creamy Vanilla, the Rose Powder Blushes in 08 Tea Rose, 01 Romantic Rose & 05 Coral Cove, the Matte Lipstick in 68 Iconic, the Moisture Lock Infused Lip Treatment in 01 Moisturizing Almond & Coconut as well as 05 Repairing Primrose, and lastly the Everyday Eyes Shadow Collection in 05 Earthy Elements and 02 Bare Necessities.
The next two brands that I knew I needed to explore were NYX and e.l.f! NYX is slightly more available nowadays but the selection tends to be a bit lacking. This NYX display was massive and VERY well stocked! I was so overwhelmed by the choices that I only grabbed a few bits but I will be going back ASAP!
I ended up choosing the NYX Eyeshadow Base in Pure White, the Ombre Powder Blush in 04 Mauve Me, and the Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks in 12 Vintage, 04 Soft Spoken, and 21 Brooklyn Thorn.
e.l.f is a brand that has always intrigued me since it is SO popular in the US and the prices are so affordable. Unfortunately, it is pretty much non-existent in Canada. Until now that is. This e.l.f display had all of the core products and even a few of their new palettes and brushes!
I ended up grabbing the e.l.f Illuminating Face Primer since I LOVE a glowy base.
That's everything that I picked up on this trip apart from a few Real Techniques tools which you know I love, but I will be heading back very soon to grab even more goodies!
Now if you're wondering where I picked up all of these incredible, hard-to-find products prepare to be excited! All of these brands and many more are now available at the brand new Rexall Beauty Department located at 901 Eglington Ave West in Toronto! The new Beauty Department is a revolutionary concept store that makes shopping for beauty an absolute breeze. I will have another post coming up soon with all of the details and updates on upcoming locations to stay tuned!
