8 Seriously Exciting Must-See Beauty Launches

There are some seriously great beauty launches this month. And I’ve selected eight that I think stand out from the crowd. Some of these won’t be advertised anywhere so I wanted to give you the inside scoop.


clarins all-in-one makeup penClarins All-in-One Makeup Pen

In the 1970s, Bic made a pen that contained four different colours of ink. You would pull down the tab of the shade you wanted to write with. It was hugely popular. Clarins is reimagining the concept with one of the most fun beauty products for spring 2017. This makeup pen features three eye pencils in black, chocolate brown and indigo blue and one lip pencil in universal natural beige. Simply pull down the slider for the product you want to use. It’s also so practical for travel.

This cleanser-oil-lotion hybrid is made with chia seed oil – a major superfood that also works wonders as a skincare ingredient. It emulsifies with water to remove makeup, protects skin’s natural moisture barrier, and leaves your face feeling soft and cushioned. It’s ideal for anyone with dry skin.


Versace cosmetic bag gift with purchaseVersace signature cosmetic pouch Gift-with-Purchase

This just may be the best-made gift-with-purchase item I’ve ever seen. It was designed in the same studio where Donatella Versace creates her fashion accessories and you can tell. It’s a large square cosmetics bag with a high shine finish and the Versace emblem. It’s free with the purchase of any large Versace fragrance at Hudson’s Bay stores in Canada beginning mid-month. Run, don’t walk to get this one. It’s spectacular.

It’s an accurate description of his really lovely new fragrance “for her fleur de musc” The eau de parfum contains notes of pink flowers, pink peppercorn, woody amber and musc. It’s a beautiful floral musc scent for her.
