We’ve all been cooped up inside during the pandemic, but summer
is short and it’s time to enjoy the weather and do a little shopping.
Shoppers Drug Mart has always been my one-stop-shop for the
latest and greatest beauty products, so today I am sharing my favorite seasonal
There isn’t much you can buy for thirteen bucks these days
and the Revolution Reloaded Eye Shadow Palette ($12.99) looks way more expensive than it is. The shadows are large,
the pigmentation is great and the colors are gorgeous! (I've been using it everyday). Although it is labelled “neutral 2,” the sultry sunset hues are anything but boring. I love the rich
orangey-pinks, deep coral and shimmery garnets.
We all want radiant skin this summer and for just $11.99 you
can get it! The new Catrice Luminice
Highlight & Bronze Glow Palette comes with 3 pretty powders that
illuminate your face in all the right places.
The Catrice Retractable
Brow Pen Pro ($9.99) is available in 3 long lasting, waterproof shades. The
rich, creamy color glides on effortlessly (never dry or ashy) and on humid days it does not run or transfer. The little brush smooths down stray hairs and keeps everything in place.
If you usually sweat off your mascara during a heat wave, try the essence Bye Bye Panda Eyes ($4.99) with smudge-proof black pigment. The brush is supposed to be "volumizing" but instead it adds definition and length. If you want thicker lashes, layer Panda Eyes with the essence Lash Princess Mascara.
Have you ever finished your makeup and left the house only to realize that your foundation looks blotchy in direct sunlight? With the Catrice Slim’matic Camouflage Stick ($7.99) you can fix your face on-the-go. The small tube slips in any purse or pocket and helps conceal blemishes, cover dark circles and correct discoloration with a creamy waterproof formula enriched with vitamin E and jojoba oil. The pigment is full-coverage, vegan and cruelty-free.
Planning to spend a lot of time in the sun this summer? Keep
your complexion healthy and hydrated with Honest
Beauty’s Hydrogel Cream ($29.99). It cools on contact, firms, blurs fine
lines and drenches skin in layers of supple moisture for an instant glow.
For even more hydration, layer the cream with No7 Firming Booster ($44.00). The
applicator is made to target, massage and treat problem areas for visible
results in just one week! I may not have loose skin or wrinkles but this
formula is definitely defining my jaw line and profile.
The Cocokind Oil to
Milk Probiotic Cleanser ($24.99) is cruelty-free, eco friendly and does not
contain toxins, fillers, artificial colors, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil
or sulfates. It is formulated with a blend of fermented oat, grape seed oil,
and flower oils that balance pH, remove dirt and emulsify makeup while
nourishing the skin.
Whether I’m hiking, working or traveling, I always keep a
hydrating spray in my bag. The Indeed
Hydraluron Moisture Mist ($24.99) is usually on my desk because it protects
against pollution and blue light damage (I spend a lot of time on my computer,
tablet and phone). The formula contains hyaluronic acid and butterfly bush
extract which is rich in soothing antioxidants, amino acids and polysaccharides
that detoxify and protect against UV damage.
The Oh K! Chok Chok
Hydrating Serum Mist ($13.99) moisturizes, sets makeup and refreshes dull
Don’t forget to stock up on face masks. Shoppers carries a
wide variety including this Life Brand
Replenishing Seaweed and Ceramide Hydrogel Sheet Mask ($4.99) and Masque Bar’s 99% natural Banana Mask
($4.99) which hydrates, plumps and illuminates.
While you’re at it, make sure to pick up some of these handy Quo Snap Clips ($10.99) to create cute
styles and keep your hair in place.
Last but not least, another delicious smelling Body Lotion from Soap & Glory ($16.00)
- their new scents are fabulous! This lightweight, fast absorbing cream is perfect
for summer. It contains a luscious blend of coconut, Vitamin A, shea butter, almond oil and green tea
extract to keep you soft, smooth and flake free.
