Kiss & Makeup Media Preview

If you're still shopping for the aunts, sisters and girlfriends on your list, look no further than Kiss & Makeup. Located in Park Royal Village, this skincare mecca, apothecary and lifestyle store is full of gift ideas, as evidenced by the media preview I attended a little over a week ago. Here's a glimpse of what you can expect in-store.

Stila eyeshadow palettes and boxed lip gloss sets would be welcome presents for any beauty lover.

I like the idea of giving a party hostess something for the home or kitchen. The Laundress products--natural non-toxic detergents and solutions for all your delicates--are practical and sweetly packaged. I picked up a bottle of Wool and Cashmere Spray for myself while I was there. The non-toxic, biodegradable, anti-bacterial spray freshens delicate knits between drycleaning trips.

You can't live in Vancouver without knowing at least one person who owns a pair of classic Hunter wellies. So how about getting her a pair of cozy fleece socks to go with her rain boots?

And for those who don't want a classic pair of Hunters, well, Kiss & Makeup has those too.

Erickson Beamon jewelry. Just divine.

Luxuriously scented and beautifully wrapped Atelier Cologne soaps are another great hostess gift idea.


  1. that looks like a cute store, haha I thought about getting a pair of Hunter willies but I just got a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs back in sept... I am thinking of getting a Canada goose winter jacket though cuz it's getting COLD here!

  2. Pop Champagne, Canada Goose is awesome! I had dinner with their CEO a while back and got to see the jackets firsthand. Great quality and very warm.

  3. Love The Laundress -- saves so much money on dry-cleaning.

    Obsessed (and I don't use this word lightly) with Erickson Beamon. Divine is the right word to describe it.

  4. Kiss & Makeup is one of my favourite places on the North Shore, such a great little secret! Love how they carry such a huge range, from jewellery to clothes to makeup. And the staff's always so nice too.

  5. I want those Hunter boots. I really need to buy myself a good pair of rain boots at some point.
