Lise Watier Hydraforce
Kayla, Short Presents: "Lise Watier has launched a new moisturizing line (Hydraforce) that helps restore hydration, while protecting skin from environmental factors (and after winter in Canada I mean who doesn't need that?). They also developed an app that you can use to detect the current hydration level of your skin." Read Kayla's review of Lise Watier's Hydraforce products and app, here.
Allure Of Simplicity
Aney, Allure Of Simplicity: "... My outfit was inspired by a more modern-day version of what Audrey Hepburn would wear. A turtleneck to keep it Audrey, but a pair of distressed cuffed-up denim instead of black tights. Lace-up flats instead of ballerinas, and loose curls instead of hair up in a bun."

Caroline, Style On The Side: "Since the skin on your hands is quite thin, most of the same products that work on our faces will also help lighten any dark spots and build collagen, which is necessary to make them look plump and healthy." Read all of Caroline's tips for softer looking hands, here.
An exclusive with Coco Rocha
Fashion & Beauty Ink
Annie, Fashion & Beauty Ink: "Coco and I are tucked away in the hotel's restaurant, reminiscing on her year-long Co+Co journey, her modelling career, technology, fashion and motherhood. To describe Coco as simply a "supermodel" would undermine all of her accomplishments. With 14 years of industry experience under her belt, Coco is a full-fledged fashion icon in every sense of the word." Read Annie's full interview with Coco Rocha, here.
Sunscreen for oily skin
Henna, Canadian Beauty: "The best part is that this primer has SPF 20 in it, so you're doing the work of priming and adding sun protection in one step. I follow up with my tinted moisturizer and call it a day." Read Henna's full review of Avon's MagiX Face Perfector, here.
Coco & Breezy launch in Toronto
Carcia & Telly, HerCastleGirls: "These stylish sisters have now launched their eye wear collection in Canada ... Their shades are unique, but well thought out in design. There are designs for everyone from the minimalist to the eccentric!" Carcia and Telly write more about the launch of Coco & Breezy in Toronto, here.
Jane, Daly Beauty: "This is the kind of beauty collection that should be experienced and savoured. The skincare products are quite rich, so I don't use them every day, but it's a treat when I do." Read Jane's full review of Trimaran Botanicals skincare products, here.
Pink mirrored sunglasses
Fashion. Food. Flair.
Tee, Fashion. Food. Flair.: "Pink mirrored sunglasses are so hot for spring/summer 2016. Think festivals, summer days by the beach, or a girly coffee date (with an off the shoulder blouse in serenity)." Read more about Tee's pink mirrored sunglasses, here.
Kat Von D: Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in Sage
Kaitlyn Elisabeth Beauty
Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn Elisabeth Beauty: "I am impressed with the quality of the shadows. Nicely pigmented, relatively easy to blend, but I did experience some kick up/excess powder when I put my brush into them. The dark green is such a stunning shade and I can't wait to experiment with it more." Read Kaitlyn's full review of this Kat Von D shadow quad, here.
Should you be using a sleep pack?
Red Lips. Blue Eyes.
Morgan, Red Lips. Blue Eyes.: Asian brands have led the way for a lot of things that have picked up in North America, including BB creams, sheet masks, cushion compacts, and now sleeping packs. If you've started seeing these pop up everywhere, you're probably asking yourself, 'What is a sleeping pack, and should I be using one?'" Morgan explains just that and puts one to the test, here.
Love That Bag
Sophie, Smitten Sophie: "Love That Bag can give you access to lust-worthy designer bags at a lower price, and some of these bags are brand new." Sophie explains more about Love That Bag, here.
