From the “Poppy Power Pout” to “Merlot Chic” – it’s a glamour revival, Ladies!
Be bright, be bold and own that natural glow.
Invited to preview the Spring & Fall 2014 collections for Stila, Cargo, Anna Sui, Ardell, Ceramic Glaze and Seche, I left with some extra pep in my step and the confidence to rock some new looks!
First – let’s talk Cargo. They are BACK! Now found across Canada in Rexall and London Drugs, they have re-released some of their classic best sellers, like their incredible ‘Swimmables’ line of blush and eyeliners, while releasing new eye-shadow palettes focusing on seductive bolder tones for Fall.
I was obsessed with their ‘Blu Ray’ collection, as there was nothing like it to blur those fine lines. And now it’s back, better than ever, and renamed “Cargo HD”… Now in more colours, this pressed powder builds to provide you with a flawless, airbrushed look.
Now, Stila – a classic favorite with iconic colours like ‘Kitten’, this brand has released some fantastic new products. From a self-adjusting CC cream in 6 shades, the “Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss” in 6 incredible colors, to my favourite: the Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow.
Seriously, these heavy-metal hues will leave you with the confidence of Pat Benatar and the sultriness of Sofia Vergara. Coming in six shades, each equipped with a stay-all-day lid primer that allows you to build up the coverage. So. Much. Fun!
I love Anna Sui products; there is something so feminine about her use of Rosa Canina Fruit oil in all her products. Something so Marie-Antoinette about this distinct smell that goes so well with her unmistakable packaging.
The new collections have a limited edition Loose Powder and three new Lip Crayons in look-great-on-everyone shades. My favourite new products were the star-shaped lip sticks that are released this Fall. Lipstick V comes in ten shades that last all day. This is 401 – Anna’s signature shade, the perfect red for all skin tones.
Who doesn’t love a good set of falsies? Ardell has released some incredible new lash collections ranging from high glamour to punk.
I am in love with the ‘Curvy’ collection – a graduated lash, this will take your look from bore to va-va-voom instantly.
Now, lashes can be tricky to apply but Ardell has thought of everything, releasing a Dual Lash Applicator that allows a seamless application, even for first time wearers.
Manicures last about as long on me as a piece of cake does in front of me, so I never bother. But the newest Spring and Fall shades by Ceramic Glaze and Seche have me reconsidering.
The Ceramic Glaze core Spring collection has 23 incredible long-lasting colours with a new fast drying top coat… And for Fall they are re-releasing three of their top sellers accompanied by four new shades.
Meanwhile, Seche has the most beautiful Spring collection with 8 new, mostly-pastel colours. I tried the purple colour ‘Easily Swept Away’ and was super impressed by the need for only one coat. Salon-quality, these are found across Canada at Rexall and Loblaw stores.
And not to be forgotten about, St Tropez, the iconic self-tan product has released their most advanced and fast-acting tan yet.
What I was impressed about with this product was the lack of that uniquely strange self-tan smell. You know, that one. Blurgh. But this – it smells almost tropical. And, if you’re a high roller looking for a glowy tan, they have released a Luxe Dry Oil so pretty you’re not going to want to use it, cause then it’d be gone! Promising streak-free results, this crème de la crème of self-tans is non-greasy and gives you a subtle shimmer. Lovely.
