Yes, you read the headline correctly. I’m single. And yes, I seek and find not only beauty, but love in my cosmetics bag. Let me clarify. I’m not delusional and believe my lipstick is in love with me, but rather I don’t need a man to state the elusive therefore highly coveted three little words, because I’ve got five great visual cues filling the void. Every. Single. Day. Literally. And all I have to do to feel the love is read the label.
Pretty Cosmetics, True Love, Lavender & Rose Triple Use Oil
This is my go-to daytime facial serum. It’s the perfect blend of organic lavender and rose essences mixed into a hydrating plant oil base. Trust me when I say my skin feels the love as the oil erases my fine lines, calms inflammation and gives my skin a radiant glow.
$30, available online at www.prettycosmetics.ca.
BECCA, Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation
With more than two-dozen shades, there’s a lot of love to go around. I like Shell’s neutral hue and how it smooths on effortlessly. Maybe it’s the formulation’s brightening complex, soothing ginger or moisturizing avocado and melon, but I can wear it all day long comfortably.
$53, available at Sephora stores.
Tarte Love, Trust & Fairy Dust Eyeshadow Palette
Dreamy and creamy, this palette is practically exploding with pink heart emojis thanks to it’s range of 10 matte and metallic neutral, rosy and plum eyeshadow hues and one highlighter. But it’s a limited edition, so if you want your daily loving fix, act now or forever hold your peace.
$49, available at Sephora stores.
Nudestix, Cream Lip + Cheek Pencil in Love
I’m in love with Nudestix’s “Love” stick. For starters, it comes with me everywhere I go. Plus, it’s almost bubblegum-ish hue gives my cheeks a soft flush and my lips the same sassy, trendy style as recently seen on Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Emily Blunt and Keira Knightley.
$28, available at www.nudestix.ca.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Love
All you need is the l.o.v.e. to smell this good. And by good, I’m referring to the radiant daisy tree petals, crystalized cloudberries and warm and cozy cashmere musk and driftwood notes that have been swirled together to create this heart-stopping, sweet blend.
From $96, available at Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora stores.
