So…what products do I absolutely LOVE and will help you get that sought after ‘just-had-a-great-run‘ glow?

Click here to shop my favourite products!

Here is a list of my personal favourite products that I use daily.

In no particular order:

1) MAC Select Cover-Up for inner eye corners and pesky pimples

2) Shiseido Pressed Powder to keep shine at bay.

3) Victorias Beauty Rush Secret Oil Blotting Sheets I like to use these before dusting with pressed powder.

4) Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara.  I take a tissue and wipe off excess before using to reduce clumping.

5) Annabelle Single Eyeshadow I wear the colour shown almost everyday. It is a great daily colour that makes the eyes look nice and bright.

6) Too Faced Liquif-eye Kit   I dip the liquid eyeliner brush into the dark brown shadow and use this to line my top lashes everyday. For a more dramatic look, I dip it in the black for an evening look.

7) Blistex Lip Conditioner     I use this easily 10 times a day, maybe more in the winter!

8) Lacross Exacta Tweeze

9) Sugar Tropic Tan Blush and Bronzer Duo    I sweep a bit of the bronzer all over my face concentrating on the hallows of my cheeks. Then, I dot the blush on the centre of my cheeks, close to my nose to give a ‘pop’. Blend with fingers.

10-14) Vive Pro Color-Care Conditioner; Nivea Moisturizing Care Lotion; Cover Girl GC Smoothers Powder in Translucent Light (I have never tried this); Life Brand (Canadian) Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover


Note: I hated the GC SMoothers Compact Powder! It was very chalky and messy!

15) Two favourite perfumes: Victoria’s Secret Amber Romance; Philsophy Pure Grace


16) Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo If I don’t have enough time to wash my hair, I sprinkle some of this amazing, magical powder into my hands and then swipe it over oily areas of my hair (i.e., scalp). I rub it in good and then brush it out to make sure no white shows. I have yet to find a better product! It has a fresh, lemon scent…so if you don’t like lemon you won’t like this…but it sure beats the smell of sweat! ;)

What an interesting idea for a blog! Why should you be limited to one interest. Loved the wedding video, too! You certainly did glow as a bride. Can’t wait to follow your blog adventures.

Caitlin Yes, I love the MAC cover up! It stays on all day long too :) I tend not to buy MAC because it is pricey but it really is great stuff.

Heather Hi and thank you for the compliments! I am glad you enjoyed the wedding video- our photographers are genius.

Where do you buy the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo? I wouldn’t mind getting some when I am home at Christmas.


Angela November 9, 2008 at 1:32 pm

Hey Leah! I bought them at Sephora :)

Oh my – where is your wedding dress from??? That’s EXACTLY the style that I want!

I noticed you don’t have a foundation listed, Do you use a full face foundation? If so, would you mind sharing the brand & color.

I just wanted to recommend my favorite product as of late – MAC Minteralize Skinfinish powder. It is the first MAC product I’ve used and I am in love – just a quick swipe and my face looks smooth and flawless. You’ve said before that you’re on the lookout for a new powder so I thought I would mention this one because it is great!
