Carrying Me Into Fall – Sephora Collection Nano Lip Liners


One of my greatest finds this month was the sale on Sephora Collection Nano Lip Liners ($5 CAD). I have happily paid full price for these in the past, but I couldn’t pass up a $5 Sephora lip pencil (especially since Ebates was offering 16% cash back at the time!).

These liners have it all — pigment, smooth application, lasting power, great colour selection (though several seem to be out of stock; perhaps they’re discontinuing this line?), comfortable to wear. I love that they come in a smaller pencil format; it’s great for travel, sure, but it’s also an inexpensive and non-committal way to try out a colour you wouldn’t normally go for.

Good News Week for Canadian Beauty!

Two exciting news items this week!

MAC Cosmetics has joined Ebates.ca, offering 3% cash back. This news was actually more exciting yesterday, when it appeared that MAC was actually offering 6% cash back. Cash back can’t be earned on Pro purchases or combined with discount codes not offered through Ebates. Still, this is better than a kick in the butt. I am definitely more inclined to purchase from MAC now that they’re in the Ebates circle.

Bite Lip Lab is a heavenly place that allows you to create your own customized lipstick for about $40 USD. Bite Beauty is a Canadian brand, so it’s always been a bit of a bummer that they didn’t have a lab in Canada. That’s all changing. They are finally opening a location in Toronto!

Bite Beauty also released a Sephora-exclusive, Toronto-inspired shade of their Amuse Bouche lipstick called GTA ($30 CAD). The Amuse Bouche formula is so pigmented and creamy without being slippery.

Between these items and yesterday’s news that Boxycharm is coming to Canada, it’s a good week for beauty in Canada.
