Estee Lauder Summer Collection – Bronze Goddess

In a sense all summer collections can seem like they’re the same – lots of golds, bronzes, and similarly shimmery neutral shades. But this summer, you’ll see a lot of “pops!” of colour. In Estee Lauder’s case, it’s a pop of bright magenta, which I have to say I really like. You see, the mix […]

Hi-Def Makeup

It has been an uber-busy week for us over here at Canadian Beauty, what with post-birthday partying (“…so sorry I could make it to your fete, lets celebrate now”) that has led us into post-post-birthday detoxing.
