CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Lit Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Friday, May 27th, 2011

These glit­ter cos­met­ics are truly amaz­ing. I would rec­c­om­mend them to any­one! I have owned other big brand name Glitter’s and none of them even come close com­pared to Lit cos­met­ics glit­ter. First of all the glit­ter is VERY pig­mented, and they are very true to colour. This is what I seen in the pack­age that I received. I was very excited!!

The Amaz­ing thing about the Lit cos­met­ics Glit­ter Base is that it really does NOT allow the glit­ter to crease on your eyes. And It can also be used as a base for eye­shad­ows which is what I tried for a day and your eye­shadow lasts all day and night (until you take it off of course.) It enhances the colours of the eye­shad­ows, and I have also used it under my blush and it works with that as well! This is amaz­ing! I love this stuff!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to any­one who loves glit­ter and wants it to last all day long!

Lit cos­met­ics insists that with No Glit­ter there is No Glory!!  Start your LIT expe­ri­ence off with one of their great kits that include every­thing you need to add some glitz your look right up!  These nat­ural, water-based prod­ucts are alco­hol, paraben and Propy­lene Gly­col free.  LIT Cos­met­ics are hypoal­ler­genic and ideal for sen­si­tive skin. This fun, excit­ing prod­uct is easy to use and suit­able for every­one.  Bring some sparkle to any party with LIT Cos­met­ics or put them on your giv­ing list for some­one spe­cial and deserving!

Lit Cos­met­ics glit­ter is amaz­ing because unlike other glit­ter bases this one is com­pletely organic, and when it’s on you don’t even feel the glit­ter is there. No sticky, itchy, fly every­where mess. Best of all the patented water-based glit­ter base will last you for years. It’s a bang for your buck and a real defi­nate “must have.” They have the best cos­met­ics out there by far! Also note: ship­ping is just $10 any­where in the world!

Who Should Wear Lit Cos­met­ics
Our “tar­get mar­ket” is vir­tu­ally every­one. Lit prod­ucts are prac­ti­cal for all ages, both sexes and every skin tone. Our prod­ucts are worn by every gen­er­a­tion: daugh­ters, moth­ers, and grand­moth­ers all wear Lit! You will fall in love after the first appli­ca­tion and really what it comes down to is: “girls just wanna have fun!”

Along with every­day wear, Lit Cos­met­ics is per­fect for:

•Fig­ure skaters
•Dancers
•The­atre per­form­ers
•Cir­cus per­form­ers
•Cheer­lead­ers
•Face paint­ing
•Cos­tume par­ties
•Hol­i­days
•And much more!

HISTORY
The Birth of Lit Cos­met­ics
The idea for Lit has roots back in 2001 when Jodie Perks, the owner/inventor of Lit Cos­met­ics, was sling­ing drinks in the night clubs around Cal­gary. Hav­ing always been a fan of fun makeup and a lit­tle “bling, bling”, Jodie felt the need to be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from the rest of the girly girls serv­ing up drinks. That’s when she hit on the idea of glit­ter eye makeup!

The basic con­cept was sim­ple; sparkles give a look of opti­mum colour inten­sity and light reflec­tion at all times of the day and into the night. Jodie had finally hit on a cool makeup to match her flashy personality!

After look­ing into the prod­ucts on the mar­ket there was sur­pris­ingly no decent glit­ter eye shad­ows to be found, thus Jodie was forced to take mat­ters into her own hands and began exper­i­ment­ing. Long hours and months of test­ing in her “top secret” base­ment lab eval­u­at­ing the pros and cons of all other glit­ter prod­ucts she exposed a num­ber of flaws, the most obvi­ous being the appli­ca­tion process and the adhe­sive. With time and deter­mi­na­tion, Jodie devel­oped a won­der­ful adhe­sive that holds, is com­fort­able and keeps the bril­liant shine of the glit­ter, as well as a whole new appli­ca­tion process for an excit­ing loose colour cos­metic line. Since 2001, Lit Cos­met­ics is now not only a bar-star prod­uct but has grown into a makeup that can be worn by any­one of any age at anytime—and that’s how Lit was born!

Why Lit is Dif­fer­ent
“No glit­ter, no glory” is our motto—fun, yet true. Being in “glit­terol­ogy” (the sci­ence of glit­ter) for 6 years we have improved glitter/loose colour makeup as it is sold in the mar­ket today. With our liq­uid adhe­sive now per­fected, we have also bro­ken down our pig­ments into 4 dif­fer­ent sizes and 4 dif­fer­ent varieties-Lit sim­ply spe­cial­izes in glitter/loose colour makeup. Remem­ber: There are no rules when it comes to Lit! From a sin­gle colour high­lighter to hav­ing 10 shades blended over your eyelids-we dare you… Let the fun begin, and your cre­ativ­ity soar!

What is the Vision of Lit Cos­met­ics?
Other than want­ing to “glit­ter the world” it has always been our dream to change the way peo­ple per­ceive or think about glit­ter makeup. Our vision was to cre­ate a good qual­ity, sexy new makeup line unlike any other that is fun, excit­ing, easy to use and suit­able for every­one. Whether it’s a day at the office or a spe­cial night out, glit­ter is the per­fect com­pli­ment to your look. Get noticed, get con­fi­dent — get Lit!

A Note To Cus­tomers
Hello fel­low Lit Chicks and we can’t for­get about those Lit Dudes out there, it is now time to have fun and be cre­ative with your make-up, acces­sories and fashion—to real­ize that girls do just want to have fun, as Cyndi Lau­per preached to us in the 80’s. Life is way too short to be bor­ing or to sim­ply be bored. Don’t be one of those girls who says, “Oh, that looks great on her but I could never pull it off.” You know who you are, and there are a lot of you because I hear it every sin­gle day! So don’t be blocked by your­self, break though and be bold, be beau­ti­ful. This next bit of infor­ma­tion may sound a lit­tle odd but it’s true, and all the present glit­ter girls of the world know this lit­tle secret and I believe in it as well: glit­ter is good for the soul. Some­thing hap­pens when you add a lit­tle glit­ter to your day. It gives you a smile, a good energy and just pumps you up and makes you feel glam, bam, thank you ma’am! So give Lit Cos­met­ics a try and enjoy every­thing you get out of it, like I have for the past 11 years! My final piece of advice for you is to stay young and try not to take things so seri­ously all the time, there is no age limit for glit­ter so you old gals like myself get it goin’ on and always remem­ber, “no glit­ter, no glory!”

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Preston Cosmetics North American Hemp Co. Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Nat­ural skin care is the care of the skin (the largest organ of the body) using naturally-derived ingre­di­ents (such as herbs, roots, essen­tial oils and flow­ers) com­bined with nat­u­rally occur­ring car­rier agents, preser­v­a­tives, sur­fac­tants, humec­tants and emul­si­fiers (every­thing from nat­ural soap to oils to pure water). The clas­sic def­i­n­i­tion of nat­ural skin care is based on using botan­i­cally sourced ingre­di­ents cur­rently exist­ing in or formed by nature, with­out the use of syn­thetic chem­i­cals, and man­u­fac­tured in such a way to pre­serve the integrity of the ingredients.

As a result of this def­i­n­i­tion, many peo­ple who use nat­ural skin care prod­ucts, turn to Pre­ston Cos­met­ics for their all-natural cos­met­ics and envi­ron­men­tally friendly per­sonal care products.

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics cur­rently car­ries the ever pop­u­lar brand called “North Amer­i­can Hemp Co.” as to which all of these fan­tas­tic prod­ucts are cur­rently avail­able to pur­chase. High qual­ity cos­met­ics at unbe­liev­ably low prices!! North Amer­i­can Hemp Co. is the first all nat­ural per­sonal care prod­ucts made with cer­ti­fied organic hemp seed oil!

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics is thrilled to announce 2 won­der­ful brands launch­ing in the Spring/Summer of 2011 called “Hush” — the nat­ural evo­lu­tion of salon pro­fes­sional hair care, and “Boo Bam­boo” — Nature’s fastest grow­ing plant has been har­nessed into a col­lec­tion of hair prod­ucts that’s guar­enteed to make your hair strong and glo­ri­ously shiny in no time flat!!

In the Fall of 2011 be sure to watch for Pre­ston Cos­met­ics — prod­ucts that are renew­able, rare, exotic, and mirac­u­lous!! How exciting!!!

Cos­met­ics nowa­days are con­sid­ered for both men and women. Nat­ural and organic cos­met­ics are fast becom­ing a trend in the indus­try. “Going green” for the envi­ron­ment has influ­enced the lifestyle of many peo­ple includ­ing their choice of make up, cos­met­ics, and skin care products.

Ide­ally and in gen­eral, all-natural and organic cos­met­ics are not tested in ani­mals and they do not con­tain chem­i­cals. Con­stant use of chemical-based make up on the face or skin can be harm­ful. Nat­ural cos­met­ics con­tain plant oils and extracts, barks, spices and dif­fer­ent oils from flow­ers. Elim­i­na­tion of unnat­ural ele­ments from your face and body can improve your com­plex­ion and skin condition.

Organic cos­met­ics appear the same as chemically-based cos­met­ics. They also come in var­i­ous colours and can enhance a woman’s beauty. The advan­tages of using nat­ural make up include health­ier skin and bet­ter com­plex­ion. The dif­fer­ence will become notice­able as you con­tinue to use pure organic cos­met­ics. Do your own research and dis­cover the ben­e­fits of using nat­ural beauty prod­ucts for your face and body.

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics was extremely kind and gen­er­ous in send­ing me a huge box filled with fab­u­lous prod­ucts from North Amer­i­can Hemp Co.! I was ecsta­tic when it arrived and saw all of the great prod­ucts in that box!

Included was hemp hang­nail helper — hand & nail cream, linoleic line lift­ing face cream, area 369 hair serum, organic oil oasis scented body oil mist, smooth cleanse smooth­ing sham­poo, and smooth seal smooth­ing con­di­tioner, all in full size!!!!! Also included were many trial sized sam­ples of the sham­poo, con­di­tioner and area 369 hair serum to make trav­el­ling much eas­ier!! I was beyond impressed with the gen­er­ous amount they sent me to try, and the deliv­ery time and cus­tomer ser­vice skills were also outstanding!!

Hemp is one of the most ver­sa­tile plants known. It can be grown in most cli­mates, is drought resis­tant, requires lit­tle fer­tiliser, min­i­mal pes­ti­cides or her­bi­cides, and has a range of uses. The seeds can be used as food and fod­der, and can be processed to pro­duce hemp oil. The stalks pro­vide fibre for tex­tiles, cloth­ing, rope, paper and build­ing prod­ucts. The bulk of the woody stalks can be used for paper, ani­mal bed­ding, and plas­tics. The hemp plant bio­mass can be used to pro­duce fuel. Any­thing that trees/timber can be used to pro­duce, hemp can pro­duce and more, includ­ing house construction!!

I give Pre­ston Cos­met­ics a huge thumbs up, and defi­nately rec­om­mend them to everyone!

The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Pre­ston Cos­met­ics have gra­ciously offered to give 1 VERY LUCKY Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win the exact same box chock full of items from North Amer­i­can Hemp Co. that I was sent to review! SWEET!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Lavera Skin Care Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Lav­era is an organic range of skin­care that in my hon­est opin­ion beats all other’s that I have tried yet. At Lav­era they are com­mit­ted to bring­ing you the health­i­est & safest prod­ucts: organic cos­met­ics, organic makeup, organic skin care, organic sun­screen, and so much more!!

Lav­era Organic Skin­care cre­ates 100% nat­ural cos­met­ics and skin­care, with the main focus on tol­er­ance for even the most sen­si­tive skin. Lav­era boasts that they are the only nat­ural cos­met­ics man­u­fac­turer that offers a com­plete sys­tem of body and skin care spe­cially for­mu­lated for allergy suf­fer­ers and sen­si­tive skin. Their anti aging line Lavere, is quite pop­u­lar among the eco friendly Hol­ly­wood set for being effec­tive, gen­tle and ‘green’. In fact they are the most ‘green’ beauty and skin­care man­u­fac­turer in the mar­ket, with cer­ti­fied nat­ural and cer­ti­fied organic ingre­di­ents. Their prod­ucts are also gluten free, paraben free, and ‘cru­elty free’.

Lavere, the anti aging line, uses repair­ing vit­a­mins, pure plant-based flavones, nutrac­e­ramides, soramides and olive leaf extracts for their nour­ish­ing organic essen­tials, which ensure gen­uine accel­er­a­tion of cell renewal, resis­tance to free rad­i­cals and reduced lines.

Lavera.com sent me some mag­ni­fi­cient prod­ucts to review which I highly rec­om­mend to any­one out there who has not had the oppor­tu­nity to try them for themselves!

I was sent their Famous lav­era Man­gomilch Hair Sham­poo as well as their Mango Milk Hair Con­di­tioner and both of these prod­ucts are com­pletely outstanding!

Not only do these 2 prod­ucts make your hair soft, smooth, silky and shiny — they smell heav­enly to boot!!

NATURALLY EFFECTIVE, ORGANIC HAIR CARE
“What chem­i­cals are you putting in your hair? With Lavera’s Hair line, rest assured that its all nat­ural and free from Sodium Lau­royl Sul­fate and Parabens!

Lav­era offers a Hair Styling Gel with extra strong hold and a full range of sham­poos and con­di­tion­ers that are sim­ply delicious!

You’ll also want to try our sham­poos: Mango Milk for Col­ored Hair, Rose Milk for Dry Hair, Apple Milk for Nor­mal Hair, Lemon Milk for Oily Hair, Almond Milk for Sen­si­tive Hair, Orange Milk for Fine Hair and Corn­flower for Dan­druff Con­trol! You’ll be blown away every morn­ing by the all nat­ural scents we’ve cap­tured in every bottle!”

Shop­ping at Lav­era is a com­plete snap as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left hand side of their web­site, and their prices are totally rea­son­able as well! They have an exten­sive array of fab­u­lous prod­ucts such as:
