Toronto Fashion Week is on its way. Show invitations are flooding my inbox and I almost can't keep track. This is an exciting time in the city as everyone's getting ready to check out our homegrown designers. New sponsors to the 2012 lineup have caused for a quick name change: World Mastercard Fashion Week. New to the family is also Maybelline New York Canada stepping in as the official makeup brand and Redken New York is the official hair sponsor. Even our friends at Essie will be present backstage.
I'll be previewing backstage looks with Maybelline and Redken minutes before the models hit the runway. Did I mention this is all happening in less than a week? I'm out of breath just thinking about it.
In the spirit of fashion, hair, and beauty, here are some hot items to add to your must-have list:
Ever since Maybelline artist Grace Lee introduced me to Baby Lips, I can't get enough of it. It smells so good I want to eat it and leaves your lips feeling super soft. Caution, it can become addictive.
NARS single Eyeshadow in Lhasa
NARS single Eyeshadow in Lhasa is a new favourite. Just got it last week and I really like the shade and its super smooth finish.
The Colossal Volum Express Mascara
The Colossal Volum Express Mascara by Maybelline is one of my latest favourites. It gives me long lashes, doesn't clump, and while it is waterproof, it comes off easily.
Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia
I have tons of perfume but Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia Essenza Eau de Parfum has been getting a lot of play lately, maybe because it's new and the fresh smell reminds me of spring.
Dream Matte Mousse
I was surprised by
New Quickliner for Eyes Intense by Clinique
While I didn't throw out my other liners after I started using Quickliner, they are definitely on ice. Love the various shades, goes on smooth, and it lasts all day. PERFECTION!
Ole Caliente by essie
While this colour is part of their spring collection, I was able to review it, and a touch of it on my nails makes me feel like spring is here. Wouldn't you agree?
