Estée Lauder’s #ShadesofCanada celebrates diversity and their iconic foundation

What’s your favourite foundation? We’ve reviewed several on this blog, and one of our hands-down-favourite foundation is DoubleWear by Estée Lauder. We’re not the only fans, this foundation is universally loved, especially in Canada. The popular foundation is celebrating Canadians with the launch of a new campaign. The new campaign celebrates diversity across Canada, and shines a spotlight on the fact that the foundation is made in Canada! That’s right, Canada is only one of two countries that are producing DoubleWear.


Estée Lauder Stay-in-Place Makeup is their #1 foundation, first launched in 1997. DoubleWear delivers 24-hour wear with a matte finish that looks flawless and natural. The colour stays true with buildable, medium to full coverage for all skin tones, and I mean all! The foundation is available in a whopping 56 shades in Canada and is $56 each.

The campaign features 11 Canadians of all different complexions and shades. Each person has a story to tell about their background and what finding the perfect foundation match means to them.

Get your glow on with Stila’s Little White Lies heavenly highlighting palette

You can never have too many highlighters. Stila has come out with an amazing highlighter palette called “Little White Lies Heavenly Highlighting Palette”. This one is special because on the surface, the colours look very similar. When applied, each shade comes to life, and transforms. The texture is a cream and powder combination.

Another cool thing about the highlighter is the base is actually translucent. What is being picked up by the light, are actually tinted pearl particles. The palette comes with 3 shades, and lasts all day when applied.

This palette is perfect to give you a summer glow.

Fresh Summer Scents

Summer and fall have the absolute best scents. When I think about summer, I think lemons, mandarin and other fresh, bright fruits.

This summer, I’m trying a new scent: Nest Wild Poppy. Poppies are such beautiful flowers, but I’ve never thought of them in a fragrance. That being said, I’m totally in love with their Wild Poppy Eau de Parfum. It’s an intoxicating mix of pear, raspberry, and apricot with hints of Himalayan jasmine and Rose de Grasse. I didn’t realize how stunning poppies were until watching the behind the scenes video below!

Ever since I made the switch, I’ve been getting lots of compliments and questions about where I got my perfume. It’s my official scent of the summer.

As for my home, I’m ushering in fruity scents with my Velvet Peardiffuser and candle. This lush scent is gentle and refreshing.

This understated fragrance blends velvety Anjou pear and crisp apple with bright, crushed lemon leaves. Hints of peony accented with white musk and amber round out this scent, creating its lush, flavorful appeal.

Nest fragrances are available at Sephora.
