Pinstagram | Wolves in all sorts of clothing

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver). Cat ears and cat eyes. When I styled a back-to-school shoot I fell in love with this kiddie cat ear headband and I always love beautifully executed liner. Flatastic. I spent a good portion of my weekend running around in […]

Beauty | Kiehl’s Limited Edition Midnight Recovery Oil

I don’t believe in miracle products. But I do believe in this. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is as close to miraculous as I’ve seen an oil come. I lather the stuff on. And I happened to run out right before Kiehl’s released a limited-edition version. A partnership with Alicia Keys and Keep a Child Alive, […]

Beauty | René Furterer Karité

I figure if you’ve done summer right — salt, sun, chlorine, sweat, and in my case baby barf — your hair should be a disaster right about now. But if you condition the heck out of it, it doesn’t have to look it. I’ve been layering on René Furterer’s Karité leave-in conditioner, which is thick but light. […]

Beauty | Bright Eyes

Eye cream’s all about texture as far as I’m concerned. I’m not a fan of the ultra thick creams. And I’ve never tried an oil around my eyes but I can’t imagine loving it. Gels, though. Gels are where it’s at. This one by Racinne feels like you’ve sat for 15 minutes with cucumbers over your eyes […]

Beauty | Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée

One of the things that stuck with me most from my interview with makeup artist Caitlin Callahan was her tip that powder blush looks like makeup but cream blush looks like your own colour. I didn’t ask for her thoughts on cheek gelée but if she were to ask for my thoughts I’d give it major kudos. This version […]

Beauty | Lush Ultrabalm

The concept is simple, really. Lush’s Ultrabalm is like that old standby Vaseline but it’s made with ingredients like jojoba seed oil instead of petroleum. It’s a staple that you can use anywhere (even, apparently, your hair, though I use it as a before bedtime lip balm) and though its texture is not as silky […]

Beauty | Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Nail Laquer in So Vain

Typically I opt for bright colours on my fingers and twinkletoes (see exhibits A, B, and leopard-printed C). But there’s something about Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Nail Laquer in So Vain that has me putting a sophist-o-twist on my usual palette. It’s as neutral as neutral can be so it goes with everything and it’s slightly sheer […]

Beauty | MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick

I’m not typically a lipstick kind of girl — in fact, I’m more into Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 than anything. But when I sat down with MAC Pro Team Senior Artist Caitlin Callahan I got to play the pick a colour, any colour game. What did she recommend? MAC Mineralize Rich in Everyday Diva. It’s bold, […]

Beauty | What’s in MAC Senior Artist Caitlin Callahan’s Cosmetics Bag?

If MAC’s entire collection is essentially your makeup drawer, which five products would you consider essential? I met up with MAC Pro Team Senior Artist Caitlin Callahan at Metropolis at Metrotown to ask her exactly that. Turns out one of her favourites is the plumping lipgloss Plushglass and you’ll find the other four on MetropolisAtMetrotown.com. P.S. I posted […]

Beauty | AG Hair’s Keratin Repair Serum

Between the masks and the BB creams, hair care is looking an awful lot like skin care these days. Enter AG Hair’s new Keratin Repair Serum. It’s like a light leave-on conditioner that’s made with keratin protein, not unlike your hair come to think of it. Meant to repair the damage you do to your mane by, you […]
