Best of BEAUTY EDITOR: Rethinking Mary Kay, my Aveeno handbag giveaway and the nails you want now

Mary Kay Liquid Lip Colours shades

Think you know Mary Kay? Think again—I can’t believe how great this makeup is! (And word on the street is that it’s several makeup artists’ best-kept secret.)

New giveaway: enter to win not just some fab hair and skincare products from Aveeno, but also a gorge Matt & Nat handbag!

You may recognize this week’s Babe in the Biz, fashion expert Afiya Francisco, from her frequent appearances on shows like ET Canada, Steven & Chris and CityLine. I love her insider beauty picks!

Reader Jen C. won a hair makeover (cut, colour and style) from Vidal Sassoon—check out her before and after pics!

Are you a “squoval” girl? There’s a subtle shift happening in nail shapes, and this is what I think looks the most modern right now.

Thanks for the update on Mary Kay. The last memory I have of it is from about 15 years ago when this small shop owner invited us to her not so great apartment to try Mary Kay on my mom. I think the image of the brand probably suffers from that sorta thing. She was really nice and all but the environment that you sell a product in is almost as important as the product itself, right? But I’m gonna check this new selection out, looks great!

Agreed – and no, it wouldn’t be my cup of tea either. But they DO let you order online!
