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.
Spring is just around the corner. Dior has a dazzling array of new products for spring! My favourite products are the Dior Lip Glow Hydrating Color Reviver Lip Balm ($41). The lip balms are from Dior’s Backstage collection. The formula is created with mango butter for hydrated lips. The formula reacts to the chemistry of each persons lips to adjust to a custom shade for each person.
Caryl Baker Visage Beauty has partnered with Skeyndor, the number one skincare brand in Spain, to bring several new facials to their menu. Facials include POWER C+ (a facial with pure Vitamin C to make your skin look radiant) and the POWER HYALURONIC (a super boost of moisture).
I tried the express Power Hyaluronic facial, and it left my face feeling super plump and soft. This is the best treatment for the maximum hydration.
So how does it work? The magic behind this facial is hyaluronic acid and aquaporin (the protein that transports water to a cell) This pairing helps to hydrate the skin, and impvoes the regenerating process of the skin. The service itself was very relaxing. My face was gently massaged with hyaluronic acid and I cooling hydrating gel mask was applied. After, my skin had more moisture even days later.
If you’re looking for a gift for Mom this Mother’s Day, why not go and get facials together at Caryl Baker Visage? Take a look at all of the locations here.

Extreme coverage brand Dermablend Professional has finally launched in Canada! The #1 brand recommended by dermatologists is best known for having amazing coverage for any skin, but especially sensitive skin, due to its allergy tested ,fragrance free formula.
Make Up For Ever has reformulated their traditional face and body foundation into a new formula. I wasn’t sure what to expect for the texture of the Make Up For Ever Water Blend Face and Body Foundation ($54) since it is not only waterproof, but also 80% water-based. The foundation comes with a convenient pump to dispense the right amount of product. Since it is also gel based, the texture was similar to a hair gel. I received the shades Y445 and Y455. (more…)
