Working in the fashion industry, I am able to communicate with some truly talented make up and hair artists. I am lucky enough to learn valuable make up tips and tricks which has turned me into quite the beauty enthusiast.
I recently purged my beauty stock pile, getting ride of the not so greats and one hit wonders, in order to start fresh…
This is where the star of this blog post and beauty guru Scarlet & Julia comes in. Scarlet & Julia is a relatively new online one stop beauty shop, specializing in bringing their customers top quality products, without the hassle and scary prices.
In order for me to give you an honest and accurate review Scarlet & Julia generously provided me with a $50 gift card to purchase some items from their store. I used this gift card to purchase an old favorite as well as some new items that had caught my eye.
Coal just had to be in the picture… such a diva!
Shopping on Scarlet & Julia is clean, to the point, and easy to navigate. Check out was a breeze!
Shipping was relatively quick and took about 1 week. They include free shipping on all orders $75 and above, and under $75 a delivery charge of $9.95 is applied (within Canada).
My package arrived in this chic little black box (very Instagramable). Inside, all my items were wrapped in black tissue and an added surprise of tissue confetti!
With my $50 credit I was able to purchase some highly recommended products. All of the products listed on Scarlet & Julia are prestigious in the beauty industry.
NO COSMETICS: No Dark Shadows Complexion Enhancer
In the colour Pizazz, this under eye concealer is a perfect match for my skin. It’s not heavy or ‘cakey’ but offers a medium to full coverage. It’s oil free and waterproof. It is said to last 6 hours… however I haven’t fully tested this theory. I did wear it for a full 5 hours without any disappearance. Would highly recommend this product.
LISE WATIER: Eyebrow Fix Brow Control Gel
After running out of my Bobby Brown brow mascara, I have been looking for a product to take its place… I think I might have found the one! The Lise Watier brow gel comes with a comb as well as a mascara. You can apply it on its own or use on top of a brow pencil. I wore this gel the other day and can say that it most certainly adds colour to your brows (for a natural look), as well as taming any unruly hairs.
OPI: Lincoln Park After Dark
This nail polish is an old favorite of mine, so once I saw it on the pages of Scarlet & Julia I knew that I had to have it. I get so many compliments with this nail colour, it has the most amazing shine and is such a gorgeous deep plumy eggplant colour. A little goes a long way with this polish, it takes about two coats and has fantastic durability.
I also received a couple of samples in my box, which is a great way to learn and experience some of the other products Scarlet & Julia offers without having to fork out the cash.
I am very thrilled with my experience with Scarlet & Julia, every person I communicated with were helpful and resourceful. I also love the fact that they are a Canadian company located in Montreal, #shoplocal. I most definitely recommend checking out their website. These guys will most certainly be on my Christmas radar!
