Beauty Feature: Canadian Indie Beauty Brands Part 2

To continue with Canadian indie beauty brands you should know today's feature is Mai Beauty!

Mai Beauty: Maija Reisenauer is the creator behind Mai Beauty, a fragrance and cosmetic line. Taking inspiration from the starlets of the silver screen era, she set out to make a lipstick and lip gloss line full of glamour, sophistication, and femininity. All products are not tested on animals, free of phthlates, parabens, S.L.S. and Propylene Glycol. Check out my two must-have shades from the line!

Want a lipstick with bold luscious colour? These mineral-based lipsticks are highly pigmented and give your lips the sexiest pout. The texture glides on very creamy and your lips feel nicely hydrated. Pictured above is Olive, a delicious orange and one of my favourite shades from the line. It looks fantastic with bronzy skin, smokey brown eyes and equally gorgeous with just a touch of black liquid liner. 

One of my favourite trends this season has been a bold fuchsia lip. I was uber excited to swipe on Greta. Go rocker chic and pair this hot bold pink with some smudgy black liner or go classic with a neutral shimmering eye, black liquid liner, and rosy pink cheeks! Love!

Overall the entire line is all very pretty - if you like a pale pink lip go with Andee or if you love coral-peach lips with golden shimmer go with Roxy. The lipsticks are long-lasting and feel amazing on the lips. As for the logo, it's cute but I'm not too keen on the lips - so overplayed.

Have you tried Mai Beauty Lipsticks? Love it? Hate it? Want it?

Mai Beauty Lipstick retail for $20 CAD. For more information on the line and how to buy visit www.maibeauty.ca.

Stay tuned for Part 3 of my Canadian Indie Beauty Brand feature!

Gorgeous shades! I wish it was easier to get my hands on. :)

How do the lipsticks smell? I'm very particular about the scent of my lipsticks because they get applied right under my nose. :P

I'm shocked that Little Shop of Beauty hasn't been featured here. They're like the original indie beauty brand from Canada!
