If you’re anything like me, you’re desperately hanging onto the last bit of summer despite the fact that September is a mere two days away. I, for one, live for summer. I love the heat, the colours, the vibes – everything – which is why I’m head over heels for the Mara Hoffman for Sephora Kaleidoscape collection. The show-stopping collection features stunning tropical prints created by Hoffman and natural products that your skin can appreciate.

“The Collection is a celebration of colour, travel, vitality, and femininity,” said Mara Hoffman. “I’ve had an amazing relationship with the Sephora Team over the years, who have masterfully executed the makeup looks for my past few shows. When they approached me about doing a capsule collection, it was a no-brainer – I knew we would create something really special together.”

If there’s one thing I know about Kat Von D beauty, especially after chatting with makeup artist Erik de Soto, it’s that every single product has been developed and tested to be of quality that Kat herself can be proud of. Vegan/cruelty-free makeup has come a long way – there was a time when payoff, shades & options available weren’t what you would hope for, but with lines like this the products are easily on par, if not better, to other non-vegan options.

For fall 2016, KVD has decided to expand on her Lock-It offerings, making it easier than ever to find the perfect components to create your most flawless complexion. So, what does Kat Von D have in store for us?

1. An expansion on the best-selling Lock-It Foundation ($47 CAD) lineup. With new packaging and the addition of 13 new shades (for a total of 30), KVD is making it easy to find your match – when you’re at either end of the skin tone spectrum, it can be a bit of a task to find the shade that accurately matches. The addition of these new shades, with various undertones, provides more options. Mo options, no problems.

2. Complexion perfection is just one step closer with the new Lock-It Concealer Creme ($34 CAD). Super pigmented, high coverage and nice & creamy, these cover imperfections in a flash and hide dark circles. They’re also perfect for highlighting & contouring – Erik suggests picking up 3 shades (one that matches your complexion, one darker & one lighter) and using these to shape your face

3. KVD is also adding in one more essential product with the new Lock-It Setting Powder ($39 CAD, not pictured). Completely translucent, and perfect for any skin tone, this loose powder is unbelievably lightweight with a matte finish that helps to blur the skin for an even smoother look.

The new Artistry Brush Collection is stunning and amazing – you’re going to want to get your hands on these gorgeous brushes. They’re soft and lush, with 100% cruelty-free bristles and stiletto-shaped handles that are not only super chic, but functional as well – Erik mentioned that these can be used as spatulas for blending products together.

4. The Lock-It Foundation Brush ($43) has been sculpted to fit into the contours of the face, ensuring even, all-over application that gets into every corner. Blending is also easy with the thick, full bristles.

5. The perfect companion to the new concealer creme, the Lock-It Edge Concealer Brush has a sculpted head to make precise, concentrated application easy. The brush is also perfect for contouring with its smooth edge – apply a deeper concealer in use the edge to blend up and into the skin.

6. Finish off your face by applying powder with the full, soft Lock-It Setting Powder Brush. The long, rounded brush picks up just the right amount of powder and evenly distributes it over the skin.

7. Fans of baking will definitely fall hard for the Lock-It Precision Powder Brush. An arched edge with dense bristles allows for precise application – apply a layer of setting powder over concealer, allow it to bake for a few minutes, then brush it off to lock the makeup in.

The new Lock-It offerings (aside from the foundation addition, available October 2016) will be available in July 2016 at Sephora.

Don’t forget about mom!  With Mother’s Day being only a few days away I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect treats to surprise my mama bear with.  Since it’s all about her this Sunday, I’ve come up with a few ideas that I think she’ll absolutely love and hope to inspire you as well!

      1. Pamper her with the OURS by Cheryl Hickey line!  There’s no better gift that being taken care of and feeling refreshed. As a new mom, Cheryl wanted to create a line that would be safe, simple and natural, and perfect for the whole family to use. The line is free from all the bad stuff so you can feel good about using it!  Put together a little gift basket with the Face & Body Exfoliator ($11.99 CAD), EveryBody Lotion ($11.99 CAD) & 3-in-1 Hydrating Oil ($14.99) to mom can feel beautiful (as if she isn’t beautiful enough already) from head to toe! PS.  Click here for a Mother’s Day message from Cheryl!
      2. Treat her with eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balms ($7.99 CAD)! These cute little sphere shaped balms are a fun little treat for her to pop in her purse.  This limited edition set contains the Passion Fruit and Fresh Watermelon flavours.
      3. Give her a fresh scent with Avon Outspoken Fresh by Fergie Eau de Parfum ($30.00 CAD). This fun, vibrant fragrance is perfect for spring and summer with fresh notes of sparkling citrus, blackcurrant flower and sandalwood. One spritz and she;ll feel her spirits instantly lifted!
      4. Illuminate her with the new Lise Watier Teint Lumière Luminous Foundation ($39.00 cAD). This foundation provides ultra-light yet buildable coverage for a finish that blends seamlessly into the skin.  It evens out the skintone and gives a look of instant radiance.  Make her glow like the goddess she is!
      5. Treat her like a pro and give her the perfect tools for flawless beauty with this brush set ($50.00 CAD) from the QUO Mother’s Day collection. Colourful and springy, this set contains everything she needs for her beauty routine; foundation, concealer, blush, shadow definer, crease blender, gel liner, liner/brow definer and lip brushes can all be found in this lovely kit with a handy pink travel bag.
      6. Refresh her with an at-home spa night. These face masks from Montange Jeunesse are exactly what she needs to kick back for a night.  Through on her favourite movie and treat her to a glass of wine while these masks work their magic.  The Super Fruit Mud mask ($1.99 CAD) deeply cleanses & nourishes pores while the Dead Sea Mud Spa mask ($2.49)  cleanses, invigorates & revitalises the skin so she ends up looking brighter and feeling fresher than ever!
      7. Let her relax with a warm cup of tea & let her enjoy the beautiful weather outside with Lemon Lily’s Canadian Maple tea ($7.00 CAD). This organic & all natural tea contains a blend of fair trade rooibos, Canadian maple & brown sugar for a sweet treat that she’ll love.

I am really excited to share with you the new mark. Jewel Shine Collection, which arrived in my mailbox last week.  I think this is a really fun collection – really fresh and perfect for creating a glowing look at this time of year.  This collection will be available starting in February 2013.   Take a look at these awesome new products:

Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette in Warm Glow ($18) – This new version of their best selling palette features 9 new, warm shades for a nice glow (which is especially nice this time of year).  I really like how versatile this palette is – the different shades can be worn individually as eyeshadows, or they can be brushed together for a really nice bronzer effect.  Some of the shades may look quite dark, but combined I found that they blended really nicely and were easy to wear – even on my pale skin.  Fun fact:  Makeup artist Jamie Greenberg used this to give Kaley Cuoco a gorgeous glow during the People’s Choice Awards (find out more about her look here).

What a Gem Face Brush ($14) – I’m not going to lie to you guys… I actually squealed when I saw this brush – seriously, what girl doesn’t want a brush with a handle full of gems?  This brush has a full, soft head, and is a perfect partner for the Touch & Glow Shimmer Cubes.  It’s also my new favourite brush.

Glimmer Shine Lip Gloss ($12) – This lip gloss, in 3 limited edition shades, is already making the rounds – Kaley Cuoco rocked this gloss in Pink Glimmer (center) during the People’s Choice Awards!  These glosses are shiny, and not too heavy, adding sheer colour to lips.  I loved how they looked on.  The only (minor) downside for me was the smell, which reminded me of honey.  I’m all for scented lip gloss, but I prefer something with more of a berry/vanilla scent.

Jewel Shine Eau de Parfum ($28) and Body Lotion ($14) – This eau de parfum has a really lovely, playful scent, keeping in line with the rest of the collection.  Hints of bergamot, golden gardenia, and marshmallow shine through, giving it a fun, sweet, and feminine scent, which I am really enjoying so far.  The scent carries through to this lightweight body lotion, and together they create a scent which has a lot of staying power.

What do you think of the new Jewel Shine collection?  Anything you want to get your hands on?
