Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: Taking care of your skin is vital, especially as we age. We always focus on maintaining our face, minimizing wrinkles around our eyes and keeping our body moisturized and healthy but we tend to overlook places on our body that need Continue reading “4 Body Parts You Should Never Forget in Your Skincare Routine”
Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: At some point or another, we have a fascination (or obsession) with the lives of celebrities. It’s kinda hard not to in this day and age when they are constantly splashed all over our social media, TVs and magazines. Before, we used to look up to celebrities for their glamourous lifestyles (luxurious vacations, stunning homes, expensive clothes) but now, we see them pushing products and services our way more than ever. It seems like every actor and singer has something they’ve attached to their celebrity status to. While some can be cheap and tacky (sorry!), some have actually created some amazing brands, proving they’re more than just a pretty face. In today’s guest post by Mia Taylor from www.highstylife.com, she’s highlighting the top beauty lines some celebrities have created that are pretty badass!
It’s common knowledge that as soon as someone gets famous, they do their best to earn as much side money they can. That is why many celebrities choose to put their name on some garbage beauty products. However, there are always those who know what they are doing, and they’re doing an amazing job. Here is the list of 7 magnificent people whose products you’ve probably already heard of, and should definitely try out.
[ Jessica Alba – The Honest Company ]
Jessica Alba launched her company in 2012. Since then, the world of non-toxic and eco-friendly cosmetics turned upside down. We admire her products because they are absolutely free of all potentially harmful ingredients (parabens, phthalates etc.) and are much more pigmented and long-lasting than other natural beauty products.
[ Salma Hayek – Nuance Salma Hayek ]
Salma is also one of the rare persons who are super careful about which products she puts her name on. She truly loves and believes in her creations. In fact, she believes in her CVS-based hair and makeup products so much, that she pulled out a bottle of her texture enhancing finish spray and demonstrated it on her publicist in the middle of her Allure cover shoot.
[ Drew Barrymore – Flower ]
Drew Barrymore connected shockingly good quality with affordable prices. Her products range from lip glosses to makeup brushes, and they were developed in the same labs as many popular and high-end cosmetics. She said that people deserve something that is good and not too much of an investment. Now that’s what we call humaneness.
[ Jeffree Star – Jeffree Star Cosmetics ]
Of course that the sassiest person on the planet has to have a spot in this article as well! We are in love with Jeffree Star cosmetics because of its variety and quality. We are constantly enchanted by the unconventional coloured lipsticks (that by the way last longer than some relationships), the “Skinfrost” highlighters that give your cheeks that blinding effect, as well as killer eyeshadow palettes that make our eyes look like we came straight from a red carpet event.
[ Eva Mendes – Circa ]
Of course we have no chances of attaining her level of God-like beauty, but we can give ourselves a luxury of faking her higher-than-sky cheekbones with her new cosmetics line – Circa. You can find it at Walgreens, but don’t be fooled – this isn’t even close to typical drugstore products. Circa shadow palettes are extremely pigmented and feel really silky, while her voluminizing mascara with avocado oil makes your eyelashes shiny and clump-free.
[ Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian – Kardashian Beauty ]
It is like their parents “made” them inside some kind of beauty factory, not bedroom. They know it all – fashion, social media, entertainment and beauty. The proof is the wild success of their 2012 makeup line. Whatever you pick, you can’t go wrong, but our absolute favourite is their Pure Glitz Hairspray that gives your hair the best possible shield for those upcoming hot summer days.
[ Miranda Kerr – Kora Organics ]
Miranda was disgusted with the number of dangerous chemicals in commercial skincare products, so she decided to create her own line of green skincare products. They are filled with antioxidants that help you detoxify and recharge your skin the best way possible, with zero harmful ingredients. Also, they are enriched with noni juice – a fruit that contains more than 100 different minerals and vitamins. Besides this, there is also her macadamia oil and olive oil hand cream that won the Best of Beauty award in 2014.
That would be it – the ultimate list. Now all that is left for you to do is to start saving your “greens”.
Thanks for such an awesome list, Mia! While these are all great lines, I know there are many others that are as equally amazing that didn’t make the list – which celebrity beauty line would you add to this list? Share in the comments below!

One of my favourite things is discovering new products, food, restaurants, etc. As I try to do more and try more in my new life here in Toronto, I’ve definitely been coming across so much more things to discover!

I am a HUGE beauty fanatic. Makeup, hair, skincare, you name it. While some things tend to be more about creating a new look or feel for yourself, the other aspect is self-care. Taking care of yourself, including your skin, is vital. Ever since I was a pre-teen, I have been on a journey of finding the best products that will help me to put my best face forward. One of the struggles in trying to find such products is the trial and error you go through. Buying a product based on how cute the packaging is or how nice it smells can only get you so far when it comes down to putting that stuff on your face. While reading a magazine article or watching a commercial on TV can help give you more details about a particular product, I find nothing does it best than to read a review about someone who has the same skin issues as me (large pores & oily, blemish prone skin) tell me if this is a hit or a pass. One of the reasons I started my blog was to do be able to Continue reading “Arbonne Intelligence Ultra Genius Review”
Winter is coming. If you’re a Canadian reader, you’re probably already living winter conditions although it still is technically Fall (FYI – Winter is officially here on December 21). Maybe the cold weather has set in but you haven’t experienced any snow yet but you might be experiencing the telltale signs of dry hair and skin. Instead of going through the days dried out and looking flaky like a pie crust, it’s about time to swap out the ways (and products) of warmer weather and start transitioning for the long, cold winter ahead. Today, I’m sharing my ultimate guide to winter essentials to help get you started before you officially hibernate for the winter. Continue reading “The Ultimate Guide of Winter Essentials”
