Hot Shopping: Natural Make-up from Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

Lush’s new line of natural make-up

The name of the game is beauty, and Lush scores big with its just-launched line of natural make-up. Shelve your foundation during the hot summer months and opt for a skin tint; fight mid-day oiliness with a translucent powder; swipe on some no-smudge liquid eyeliner to make the eyes pop; and complete the look with a swish of mascara—the first-ever from this cult-favourite company. Struggling to choose between the 29 colours for eyes? A personalized reading using the colour wheel (pictured) helps to narrow it down to three choices.—Jennifer Patterson

Hot Shopping: No More Falsies

Benefit's They're Real! mascara

Forget fiddling with false lashes and give Benefit’s recently released They’re Real! mascara (pictured, $29) a whirl. Sashay through the day with thick, lustrous lashes thanks to the durable, long-lasting formula and easy-to-use precision applicator—guaranteed to leave even the finest follicles standing at attention. At Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale and Sephora.—Amanda Peters
