Express stores have finally made their way into Canada, and it’s about time.
Now you can get your beauty fix while you shop for the hottest fashion trends because Express has launched a beauty collection.
Right now, the collection has just a few pieces but the line will be expanding each season to add new items.
I was lucky enough to try out some of their holiday pieces (available online and in-stores).
Love Express Shimmer Body Powder
The limited edition Shimmer Body Powder ($29.90) comes in a tube with a white fluffy brush. You can apply the light pink shimmer using the Push button for a light touch to your shoulders, legs, arms, hair and décolleté.
The tube also has a Close/Open switch to avoid spilling powder on your makeup counter or in your makeup bag.
The bonus with this shimmer powder is that it’s a two-in-one product: the powder is lightly scented with Love Express, the first fragrance for women by Express. Love Express is a floral fragrance with notes of Blackberry, Lily of the Valley, Tiare Blossoms, and Sheer Vanilla Musk.
The Love & Cheers Lip Gloss Trio ($16.90) includes three limited edition shades of tasty lip gloss specially designed for this kit: Iced Sugar, Currant Tonic, and Peppermint Mist.
All of the Express glosses feature a clear shine or a light shimmer in sheer to medium color. The easy glide-on glosses also have a smooth, non-sticky texture.
If you don’t live in Calgary or the Toronto area (where you can find the first Express stores in Canada), be patient. The rumour is that 50 stores will be opening across the country over the next few years. I’m crossing my fingers Vancouver will be next on the list!
