Real Techniques Cosmetic Brushes
Read our review HERE
Don’t tell anyone but until I discovered Real Techniques cosmetic brushes just this last month I’ve been using poor quality brushes. I didn’t really know they were poor quality, I just thought I was bad at putting on make-up. While I’m not expert (far from) I can see now how the quality of your cosmetic brushes can make a huge difference!
I don’t wear a lot of make-up but due to my roseacea I’ve had to start wearing foundation so I wan’t to be able to apply it in more useful and esthetically pleasing fashion. In other words I want my make-up to work and it does now with these fabulous brushes.
The Real Techniques Bold Metal Collection are the first ones I discovered and you can get them online at Farley Co or at select London Drugs locations. You can also order them online at LondonDrugs.com and pick them up at a location near you just in time for the holidays! If it’s not available at your London Drugs you can ask them to transfer it from another store, I just did that for another product. They are awesome like that at London Drugs!
Real Techniques Core Collection is a fabulous set for those starting out to the beauty experts!
- detailer brush: precision cut to effortlessly conceal problem areas; or, use with lipstick for long-lasting shape and definition
- pointed foundation brush: Use with liquid foundation to build custom coverage
- buffing brush: ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation
- contour brush: delicately applies highlighter to contour or create sheer, soft-focus finish
- panoramic brush case is a 2-in-1 case + stan
The EcoTools Six piece Bamboo Starter Kit is also a wonderful gift choice and is only about $18.99 what a deal! Cruelty Free & environmentally friendly products!
It is also available online at Lond Drugs and other select stores!
The EcoTools Six-Piece Bamboo Starter Kit features animal-free taklon bristles which are cruelty free (made from soft and pliable synthetic hair), with the metallic ferrule made from recycled aluminum.EcoTools Bamboo Domed Bronzer Brush
EcoTools Bamboo Domed Bronzer Brush – Cruelty Free & environmentally friendly products!
In my opinion everyone needs a bronzer brush, this is a brush I would use daily and now that I have a good quality one I will use it daily! It just adds that little bit of glow and finishes of a natural look in my opinion.
Create a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow with one of our softest and fullest brushes! The plush, round head provides a smooth, one-sweep application of bronzer. Apply where the sun would naturally hit to warm up your look.
Books or gift cards to a book store
I’m not going to suggest certain books as everyone’s tastes are different but as someone who is an avid reader I love getting books or better yet a gift card to my favorite book store. Seriously it’s one of my favorite gift options.
I love receiving good quality chocolate and giving it so for myself it’s always a great gift idea!
Full review & giveaway coming soon
Hagensborg’s fine quality chocolate is simply amazing and is a treat for the taste buds. This dark chocolate lover even likes their milk chocolate goodies because it’s just that good. Better yet it’s located right here where I live in the Metro Vancouver area, however don’t fret our friends to the south Hagensborg will deliver to the US and trust me it’s worth it! From their tasty Boar Bars to their Truffle Pig Chocolates (can you sense a theme here?) their chocolate is AHmazing!
Aromatherapy products are always at the top of my list and when you can add them to your own bath products, creams and more it’s even better. Aromafloria gives you that option!
- Select your preferred base product.
- Add your preferred essential-oil blend.
- Mix, smell and enjoy.
Emani HD Corrective Concealer Vegan Cosmetics – Available at London Drugs
Just this October after I had the opportunity attend an event where almost all the brands that London Drugs carries I discovered Emani Vegan Cosmetics. As someone who has roseacea these products are made for people like me, those with sensitive skin BUT they are fabulous for everyone! If your local London Drugs doesn’t carry Emani that’s okay just go to Londondrugs.com and order it that’s what I did! I recently purchased their Hydra Wear liquid foundation and love it too, can’t wait to try more of their products.
While every effort has been made to ensure accuracy of product colour, some variations in colour may occur.
I love these wine glasses they are too funny and the drinking wine in yoga pants that one is perfect for me!

You can’t go wrong with giving essential oils as a gift. I personally use essential oils daily for a variety of reasons and I love the ones from Spark Essential Oils. I would recommend doing the Oil of the Month Club, it’s only $15.99 a month and you get a 15ml essential oil each month. Each one is worth well more than 15.99. It also includes all shipping and taxes both to the US & Canada! Some of the ones I’ve received normally sell for $30 or more! GO HERE to check it out.
