The Glow Box
They say: A curated box of made-in-Canada beauty products from the Vancouver-based glam team at The Glamoury. Inspired by the beauty lounge’s most popular look, The Glow, the set includes a bronzer, glow powder, two eyeshadows, a combo eyebrow liner, mascara and lip colour. The Glow Box is available in three different shades.
We say: These boxes take the guesswork out of creating a glowing makeup look. Our tester found the products had good colour payoff and a luxe feel. Plus, the how-to videos on the local company’s website were very helpful to ensure the selection of goodies were used to the best advantage.

Upswing Full Volume Mascara
They say: A vegan, cruelty free mascara formula from the Canadian beauty brand Bite Beauty. The product features tree berry wax — a vegan alternative to beeswax — to “grip” every lash and provide “buildable yet lightweight volume.”
