SST Cosmetics‘ Signature Series makeup line for summer called “Quintessential,” prices vary from $17.95 to $21.95 per piece.
MADE IN CANADA! Yes. Love this.
Everything in the SST makeup line is mineral-based and free of harsh chemicals (read: no parabens! And no talc, boron nitrate or gluten, either).
This SST Cosmetics summer collection is five pieces strong, featuring a really soft, natural palette ideal for making skin glow.
The packaging is really slick, and the eyeshadows have a great, easy-to-open-and-close mechanism.
SST’s lipgloss goes on beautifully and has long wear…the kind that’ll get you through a coffee or glass of wine.
The eyeshadow pigment just isn’t very strong, and it’s dusty. This means that not only do you have to swipe so many layers to get a really good base of colour, but you’re left with shadow dust all over your lashes and under your eyes. If you sport eyelash extensions like I do, it’s a pain.
I don’t find the lipstick as hydrating as the marketing materials promised. In fact, I found my lips got a bit puckery within a short time. Even though the colour was quite pretty.
