Shoppers Drug Mart summer beauty haul

If you live in Canada, then you know that Shoppers Drug Mart has become a hotspot for good beauty brands in recent years.

From mass-market brands like Maybelline New York, to new-to-Canada options like Nude By Nature — and even luxe brands like Givenchy — their bricks-and-mortar shops and online store are a new go-to for many beauty collectors. Ourselves included.

So, when the team behind their beauty offering sent us over a selection of their hot new beauty offerings for summer, we were delighted to dig in. Here are a few notes on our favourites:

-Nude by Nature Beach Glow Liquid Highlighter ($21), this liquid highlighter gives skin an instant glow and is super easy to apply thanks to the mess-free wand applicator. Just dab on, blend and go.

-Catrice Prime + Fine Spray ($9.99), a setting spray that can be used before or after makeup application. The spritzer dispensed a nice amount of product, without fully soaking the face like some tend to do.

-Pixie On-The-Glow ($24), an innovative skincare product that is a moisturizer in a solid format and can be used on skin, lips and hair. The formula is non-sticky and greasy when applied. Very cool!
