Last Wednesday, I attended the media launch of Dermablend Professional Canada. The event was held in the very posh Distillery district in Toronto. 

We were welcomed with cocktails, finger foods and of course Dermablend Makeup.  Makeup stations with makeup artist on hand to colour match you with your perfect Dermablend shade.
We were treated to a very informative presentation of how this amazing camouflage brand works accompanied with a live demonstration. 
I was truly amazed with the amount of coverage Dermablend products deliver. The most impressive part of Dermablend Professional is that even the most sensitive skin and skin with special concerns like rosacea, spider veins, acne and more can wear this with confidence without reactions or having that cake face. It delivers the most natural looking, natural feeling light weight coverage. 
Choose your coverage and formulation according to your needs:
 

We were gifted with a smooth liquid camo foundation, a loose setting powder and a long wear makeup remover.

I have been wearing the smooth liquid camo foundation with the loose setting powder for 4 days now and I must say that this foundation delivers! I am amazed how long the foundation last on my face. It lasted for over 24 hours...yes..yes I know what you are thinking and yes I did wear it over night. Testing sometimes will make me do this..in my defence my weekend included Imats, NYX Afterdark Imats party and Nuit Blanche. The weekend was a soggy weekend as well and foundtion held! 

The dermablend smooth liquid camo foundation is listed as a medium coverage foundation but on my skin its Full coverage. I mean it covers even my little purple veins on my cheeks. 

The loose setting powder is key for longevity for this foundation, a generous amount of this silky finely mild powder all over with at least a 2 minute "baking" time is all that's needed to have this foundation set for your day.

Dermablend Proffesional Products will sold at selected Shoppers Drug Mart starting October 8th, 2016.

I am bringing back POTD (Product of the day) because so many gems out there that get overlooked and forgotten.

Like these amazing INFALLIBLE PRO MATTE GLOSSES from L'Oreal Paris..they were launched I believe in the beginning of 2016 and not much love or attention was given to these great liquid lipsticks.

The claims are all true but I would not consider them a full matte finish liquid lipstick, its very comfortable to wear but its more like a demi matte, I see why they call it a matte gloss. The formula takes a bit to dry and its not transfer proof. But, they are very comfortable to wear and very long lasting. The colour selection is beautiful and the applicator is great to get the most precise application.

  • matte finish
  • highly pigmented
  • long lasting 6 hour wear
  • comfortable and non drying
  • velvet finish
  • soft texture 
  • whipped cream consistency 
  • hydrating
  • 12 shades 
  • SRP $14.99
L'Oreal products are available at your local drugstore and walmart.




*Product was sent for consideration by LOREAL Canada

A Reflection on 2017...

Wow what a year it was! Started the year with moving from a job that I was comfortable in for 9 years to a different new role, still in the beauty industry but this time in the medical side of things. It has been a year of learning and challenges but I can truly say I am happy. Plus! a side job with an amazing cosmetic brand has given me the love of makeup back. 

I have met new people that have really changed my life, made new friends that I know I will have for life and ended a 2 year relationship...

I made amazing memories this Summer with my family that I will cherish forever and I will be forever grateful for the all the love I received from everyone, I am truly blessed to have them in my life.

A new member of my extended family has brought us so much joy and I will look forward to seeing him grow..

2017 was a year I will never forget, I will keep those memories deep in my heart and cherish them forever. 

2018...

What is coming, you ask? Well thebeautyblog.ca has been dorment for 2017 but It's back!

YOU all know how much I LOVE to change up my hair colour, and can't commit to one particular shade...so when L'Oreal Paris announce the launch of their new Colorista semi-permanent hair color line I immediately reached for the bleach and waited to get my hands on the product.

Lucky for me the lovely people of at L'Oreal Canada invited me to the official media preview of the their Spring 2017 beauty products (review coming up on the beauty products!) and part of the launch included the new COLORISTA semi-permanent hair color and was gifted about few shades.

What is COLORISTA?

  • semi permament hair color
  • fades in 4-10 washes 
    • washes out faster if you use the L'Oreal fading shampoo
    • use the Colorista hair color remover to remove it all in one step
  • no mixing 
    • unless you want to create your own personalized colour, mix shades or mix with the clear mixer to soften the shade
  • no ammonia
  • 7 shades for bleached hair/blonde
  • 4 shades for brunettes 

My Review:

OK, I love this product! hands down the best semi permanent hair color I have ever used, and if you have been with me for a while you know I have tried probably everything out there. 

This product is so easy to apply, does not stain the skin, leaves the hair shiny, smooth and vibrant. 
The lighter shades do fade quicker than the darker shades, and do not stain your towels or stain your pillow. (this is important! because the other products I have used, they do)

I did mix a few colours to get more of a customized magenta colour. You can mix a few shades together to get the shade that you want to achieve.

The COLORISTA kit comes with a tube of semi-permanent hair color, a coloring brush, 4 sets of plastic gloves and simple to read instructions. 

The fading shampoo works really well if you want to fade out your colour quickly, it removed most of the my colour within 3 washes. It's like a clarifying shampoo and removes the colour effectively but does leave the hair feeling dry and squeaky clean. 

In total I tried out 5 shades of the COLORISTA line and they all delivered amazing results!

The ultimate winter warrior survival kit consist of 4 products that will keep you outer shell looking and feeling the most hydrated, smooth, luminous and healthy looking.

Let's start with your body, Canadian Winter means extreme cold temps and to survive we pile on layers and layers which suffocates our skin and leaves us feeling so dry.

Olay Regenerist Luminous overnight mask will have you looking radiant, rested and #ageless. Nightly use of this overnight mask will have your skin waking up so hydrated and even toned that you will not feel the freezer burn of Winter.


Olay Eyes Illuminating eye cream will make sure that you look rested, make your dark circles look bright and hydrated. The light reflecting pigments camouflage the darkness of tired looking eyes with an amazing illumination of a dual swirl of illuminating goodness. 

Pantene PRO-V Intensely Strong Repair creme will keep your hair strong, unbreakable and moisturized through the harsh Winter hat wearing months. The leave in treatment will maintain your hair split ends to a minimum and prevent future breakage. 

Surviving Canadian Winters are hard but thanks to Olay and Pantene we are all Winter Warrior Survivors!
