By Monday, June 27, 2011

I love Canada, so all this week is Canadiana week here at Batting A Lash.

Today I wanted to list some of my favourite Canadian Brands.
  • Annabelle Cosmetics
    • A great brand I have loved since I was 14 and first allowed to wear makeup. They have an excellent selection of liners and many other products.
  • Balmshell
    • Specializing in cute lip glosses and fantastic stains this brand makes lips happy.
  • Cake Beauty
    • Skin care and other yummy yummy products made right here in Canada.
  • Cargo Cosmetics
    • Some of the best blushes/bronzers you can buy. I am a big fan of their products and most of which are Canadian made too.
  • Consonant Body
    • This brand features all natural skin care. l just discovered them and I am loving it. I am sure I will be trying out more of their products in the near future. 100% made in Canada, how could I resist? Oh and many of their products are named after places, how cute is that?
  • CoverFX
    • Focused on foundations and concealing, this brand has been helping women and men world wide obtain beautiful skin for over 20 years now. I personally could not live without their primers (eye and face).
  • Face Attelier
    • Silicone based products equal beautiful makeup. Some of the best lipsticks and foundations you can find.
  • Fruits & Passions
    • Delectable smelling and amazing on your skin, this brand has by far the best body butter on the planet (as well as many other products that rival no other) all made here with pride in Canada.
  • Joe Fresh
    • Spin off of the fantastic and frugal Joe Fresh clothing line their makeup and more importantly nail polish are affordable and divine.
  • Lise Watier
    • Some of the best liners in the nation. Skin care and fashionable colours are their staples.
  • MAC
    • This cult classic brand started out in Toronto but is now owned by the American Estee Lauder Companies. Still its head quarters remains in Canada and Estee Lauder has a factory that makes many of my Mac/Clinique/Estee Lauder products in it (every Mac Shadow/Paint Pot/Fluidline I own is made in Canada), because of this Mac will always be Canadian in our hearts.
  • Marcelle
    • Big sister to Annabelle, this brands focus is mainly on skin care but has in the past little while expanded its colour selection and is amazing. I love so many of their products.
  • Quo 
    • Shopper's Drug Mart's own brand is now 10 years old and has grown into a serious brand. I have found many loves on their shelves over the years. I still love their primer.
  • Vasanti Cosmetics
    • This is a rare brand that every single item they sell is made in Canada. They all are named after places (still so cute), oh and they all rock. 
  • Yaby Cosmetics
    • Pick and choose what goes into you palette for a pro feel even if you are not.
