Spring Cleaning: Makeup
Spring is a good time to clean the house, change your clothes, and prepare for spring and summer. It’s also a good time to check your makeup kit, add new colourful eye shadows and get rid of the products that have expired, or simply don’t work well on your skin. Be sure not to ignore the expiration date on cosmetic products; otherwise you run the risk of infection and irritation. 
Let’s take a look at the life expectancy of skin care and makeup products:

Mascara
You probably use it often, so it’s important to know that you should throw it away if it has been more than three months after you opened it, otherwise you risk a nasty eye infection. Mascara and eyeliner are very sensitive products, so it is best to change them every three months even if you haven’t used all of the product.

Powder
Powders last longer, approximately three years. If they are older than this they begin to go dull, and dry - they won’t go on smoothly and you may get a patchy application.

Primer
Primer allows for your makeup to last longer, apply better, keeps oil production in check and camouflages small imperfections. It doesn’t last more than two years, so you shouldn’t worry in applying it every time under makeup.        

Eye Shadows
Coloured eye shadows last about two years, but there are so many new colours and textures on the market every season that it would be a pity not to introduce new eye shadows every season to change things up. 

Lipstick
A lipstick’s life is between two and four years, depending on the ingredients contained. Generally, if it’s more than two years, you can tell by the smell if it’s still good or not.

Brushes
It is important to clean your brushes on a regular bases. Makeup brushes can become coated not only with makeup residue, but also with body oils and dead skin, making them havens for bacteria that will decrease the life of your brush, negatively affect the proper application of makeup and can also cause skin problems and possible infection. Check your brushes every 6 months. If they look worn out, they need to be replaced.

We love reading reading Jane Iredale testimonials! Here is one we received recently that we had to share: 

Hello,
I am writing to share my complete satisfaction and admiration for the
Jane Iredale line.
Around 6 years ago, I was diagnosed with Vitiligo. It was something extremely hard for me to deal with, as my nice tan, Mediterranean skin was my favorite feature about myself, and all of a sudden out of the blue, it was gone. I was becoming a Dalmatian.  I was ashamed. I stopped wearing skirts and shorts, not wanting people to see my legs. I always had a cardigan or sweater on, not wanting people to see my arms.  I stopped going to public places where I would be seen in a bathing suit, completely embarrassed about how I look.
I have always been a very natural person, not wearing makeup other than a bit of blush, mascara, and a simple gloss.  However, given these circumstances, I had to start wearing some, as I wanted to hide my spots on my face too, not to forget to mention the new extreme sensitivity of my skin. The only thing I could not cover, were my hands. So I quickly became addicted to makeup, trying everything and anything I could to cover up. Since the beginning of my Vitiligo, I have spent thousands on makeup, trying every single brand available to me, determined to find the best one. But nothing really impressed me. Either they were too thick and heavy and made me feel like I was wearing a mask, of they didn’t hold and I would have to reapply regularly throughout the day. Or they were too expensive. I became discouraged. 
A few months ago, one of the most precious people in my life opened a great urban spa in the downtown Montreal area. I walked in last weekend, and noticed that she was now carrying makeup. Jane Iredale products. She said that she brought in this line with me and her in mind (she has skin cancer so has also been looking for cosmetics that are good for extremely sensitive skin).  
She started telling me about the brand and how great it is for people with skin issues. I smiled, loving her positivity and enthusiasm, but I was not convinced, as I tried so many kinds before. I thought to myself, how will this be any different?  Then she pulled out a book, showing me the different products for the different skin conditions. She flipped to the Vitiligo page, and there I saw a before and after picture that impressed me. I asked her to try the makeup on me - I couldn’t wait. I wanted to see if this stuff was for real, or was that picture Photoshop work. 
So she did - we used the Disappear concealer in Medium, the Amazing base in Amber, and the D2O spray.  I just loved the feeling as she was putting it all on me. The smell, the freshness, how it felt like there was absolutely nothing on my skin.I loved it already. But when she was done, and I saw myself in the mirror, I instantly became so emotional because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.  The most amazing coverage - we could barely notice anything. And I felt so natural - I didn’t look like I had makeup on. And I didn’t feel like I had any makeup on. I felt like myself again!  I gave my friend a giant hug thanking her for bringing this line in. I was sold. I bought those three items, and now I have a few more items I am going to pick up later on this week.  Jane Iredale is now all that I will be using. I feel that I am in good hands, and I know I am doing good for my skin with this brand.
So thanks to amazing people in my life, I have now given up on hiding behind thick makeup, and I have my confidence back. So all that to say Thank You.  I am forever grateful, and I am now a trusting and loyal customer.
With kind regards, 
M.S.

Want the look of faux eye lashes without irritating your eyes? 
Here’s the lowdown on fibre mascaras (aka ‘sculpting fibre’) that promise to deliver the look of false lashes without the mess:
They contain a high amount of nylon, silk or rayon micro-fibres that attach onto your lashes, giving you that longer, fuller look. Some come mixed directly into your mascara; others are separate and need to go on in layers in between coats of mascara. The upside is that they do create length and volume superior to that of a regular mascara. 
If you have sensitive eyes or wear contacts, however, these same fibres can fall into your eyes and create a mess of issues.
One of our favourite mascaras is one that is safe and gentle, yet delivers what it promises - Long and thick lashes that will not flake off - Jane Iredale Longest Lash Thickening & Lengthening Mascara.

For more info on Jane Iredale mineral makeup products click here. 

This dual-purpose formula contains sea minerals that condition lashes so they can grow to their fullest potential, while thousands of cellulose fibers coat the lashes for a look that’s glamorous, rich and full. The extra large, tapered brush makes application easy and separates lashes effortlessly.
• Packaged in a squeezable tube with the highest quality brush
• Contains 75% more product than normal mascaras
• Conditions lashes so they don’t clump, flake or break
Tip: When Longest Lash Lengthening Mascara is initially used, it may feel drier than other mascaras. This is because the normal water content has been replaced with algae extracts. The power of the extracts is what nourishes and conditions the lashes.

Are You Addicted To Lip Balm?

If you use a balm more than three times a day, carry more than one in your purse and keep various balms in multiple places, you’re probably dealing with an addiction. 
Here’s the thing: When your lips are covered in synthetic ingredients, they feel moisturized and protected, yet their cells don’t have a chance to turn over and renew. So, once your lips feel dry, you probably simply reapply your lip balm and your lips never have a chance to repair themselves. It’s a vicious, waxy cycle. - The Globe and Mail (Beauty Section)

Break the cycle with an effective lip care regimen. Regular exfoliation and a high quality lip moisturizer should help you kick the habit and keep your lips in tip top condition!
Lip balm addicts, get hooked on these!
1. Sara Happ Lip Scrub & Lip Slip Gloss
Lip Scrub exfoliates lips and eliminates dry, flaky skin to reveal lips that are ridiculously soft and supple.  After exfoliating, smooth on a small amount of Lip Slip Gloss to seal in hydration. No need to reapply every hour, it’s that good!
2. Environ Ionzyme C-Quence Lip Balm
 Enriched with essential vitamins and antioxidants, this balm assists to nourishing and smoothing the lips leaving them feeling soft and supple. A serious balm for a serious addict. 
3. Sacred Nature Lipstick
A lip balm rich in organic Buriti oil to regenerate, soften and protect the lips against environmental stress such as the sun, wind and cold.




4. Jane Iredale LipDrink SPF 15

This colourless lip balm really is a drink for the lips! It contains no petroleum-derived products that dry out the lips. LipDrink is made of a base of macadamia nut oil, an added active sunscreen ingredient of edible zinc oxide for broad-spectrum sun protection and antioxidants (green tea extract, Vitamin E and C).
5. (Malin + Goetz) Mojito Lip Balm
Flavoured with Mojito, this lip balm is scientifically blended to restore and replenish. This gel easily integrates for daily maintenance, prevention and treatment of dry, irritated lips. Colour and Paraben free.
6. LaLicious Lip Butter
A delectably moisturizing lip butter that leaves lips supple and kissably soft.  Sugar Kiss Lip Butter is formulated with natural oils and extracts to condition, invigorate and revitalize lips. This hydrating butter goes on clear with a sweet scent of vanilla, rose and citrus.

All products are available for sale in Montreal at Etiket Boutique and online as of March 2012.
