To Give Is Beautiful – Shoppers Drug Mart – beautyBOUTIQUE [EVENTS]

It’s that time of the year when to give is beautiful. This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a holiday event at Vaughan Mills shopping center as a Fragrance expert. I took people who attended (open to public) through a fragrance experience that peaked all of their senses! All fragrances I spoke about are available at Shoppers Drug Mart’s beauty boutiques.  In case you missed this event, don’t worry! The next one is happening at the Eaton Center, Dec 2nd and 3rd from mall opening to close hours.

October Beauty and Skincare Favourites [BEAUTY]

It has been a busy summer! With all of the great beauty events I’ve gone to this summer, I have lots of October favourites that I’d love to share with you. If you’re out on the market looking for something new, take a look here to see which items you might want to add to your beauty routine. Almost all of the items below can be found at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. 😉 October Beauty Favourites STILA I’ve been using Stila cosmetics for a few years now and I haven’t come across a Stila product that I didn’t like. I’ve been obsessing over these Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer and the Stila Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. The liquid lipstick is true to colour and speaking of colour comes in so many different shades. It’s staying power after eating/drinking blows my mind. I never…

Velour Lashes REVIEW + Live in Lashes EVENT [BEAUTY]

Velour Lashes is a Toronto based beauty brand that makes (in my opinion) the best luxury faux lashes! I had the pleasure of attending their very first pop up shop at the Eaton Center via Sephora. This pop up’s main goal was to “inspire lash confidence”. It did the trick for me, that’s for sure. A pro at applying falsies on others but terrible at doing my own. Finally a product I’m confident in applying to myself. Naturally I have long eyelashes and with mascara I can get them even longer and thicker. But the look I get with falsies doesn’t compare. You can see the difference in my pictures especially when I go full glam on my eyes.  Velour Lashes REVIEW + Live in Lashes EVENT [BEAUTY] At the event, we were lucky to watch a make-up demo done by celebrity make-up artist Patrick Ta. He walked us through a…

Elizabeth Arden Gelato Crush Colour Collection [BEAUTY]

I’m obsessed with this Elizabeth Arden Gelato Crush Colour Collection! It’s like a treat without the calories. The Plush Up Lip Gelato feels incredible on my lips! I’ve recently been wearing a lot of drier and matte formulations that don’t feel so good on the lips, so this was definitely a treat. My lips felt instantly cool and moisturized. The colour is perfect for a more olive skin tone. The Lip Gelato packaging is also a little different from the traditional lipstick. You push up on the Arden logo for quick access. Easier for us mama’s who only have one hand free at times! Thank you Arden!  Colour: Bare Kiss Price: $33.00 Comes in 18 shades. Key Ingredients: Peptides and Hyauronic Acid Shea Butter Vitamin A, E and Rosemary Extract This Plump up Lip Liner is so creamy and goes on really smooth. It’s also perfect for filling in the…

NEW No7 Skincare: The Serum that was Always Sold Out [REVIEW]

During my years as a beauty adviser at Shoppers Drug Mart, Boots No7 skincare was that one skincare brand that amazed me at the amount we sold, so quickly. A new brand to the store and it could barely stay on the shelves. It was the one product for months selling super fast. I wanted to try it so badly but at that time my young skin didn’t need it. I would try the tester on my hands to get a feel for the texture. Absorbed quickly, felt light and according to customer reviews: promised results that could be seen right away. Now fast forward to this month when I got invited to try the new advanced serums. Even better, now I’m at the age where I could use the products and see for myself the magic that awaits in these serums. No7 RESTORE & RENEW – FACE AND NECK SERUM…

Shoppers Drug Mart – Be Bold with Beauty and Joyce Bonelli

On August 9th I had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people in the beauty and photography industry. Shoppers Drug Marts Beauty Boutiques are doing a special campaign called Be Bold with Beauty from Aug 12th – Sept 8th. This campaign welcomes customers into Beauty Boutiques to choose their new bold make-up look, consult with the beauticians and learn about the products being used to create the new look. A beauty boutique make-up artist did the metallic look on me. Definitely something new for me. I usually go really dark on eyeliner and mascara. This look was light on the eyes, but popped with metallic eye shadow and more bold on the lips and cheeks. Especially for to my skin tone.
