this store's life 7.15.15

The past few months at Kiss and Makeup have been somewhat of a blur due to a trifecta of moves that all happened at once (of course). We built a new shop, moved to a new home and created a new HQ office. Boxes are still full and things misplaces but the show must go on... so here's a round up of what's been happening in our little boutique(s)*** of late.

***I just totally squealed here. That's the first time I've written boutiques. It's taken 10 long years to get here and we finally have. Location Kiss and Makeup # 2 is now open at 1791 Manitoba Street, Vancouver. Come on by. 

Night shot of the new Kiss and Makeup shop in Olympic Village, False Creek, Vancouver - Our new neighbours include Craft Beer, Steel Toad, The Flying Pig, Earnest IceCream, and Terra Breads. Needless to say we are delighted to be in the neighbourhood, our waistline not so much!

With record breaking heat here in Vancouver, we have been hitting Kits and Third Beach regularly. Summer essentials: Throw - Beyond Borders, Straw Hat - Hat attack, Clutch  - Jade Tribe

Who's festival ready? Our Coachella inspired #ootd. Little white lace dress - Anine Bing, Essential ankle booties - Sol Sana, Fedoras are a must - Brixton, A cross body clutch to keep you hands free ready to dance - Tyloulip sisters. 

New store means new products! Brand newness from a hair care line called R+Co . This is a collective of  products created by hair care styling geniuses Howard McLaren, Garren, & Thom Priano. This trio is out to change the industry and we are excited to be along for the ride with R+CO.

The Astro ear climber. Another brand new line from Vancouver by Leah Alexandra. Her pieces are made right here in Gastown and they are delicate, beautiful and I want them all. 

Honey Bees are all the rage this season. We have skincare, candles and even found some Vodka ( which we unfortunately do not sell) all based on these little bumblers. No bees were harmed in the making of any of these. Pollen Arts makes candles from the honey produced from bee hives on their property and makes moulds from vintage bottles they collect. Benir Beauty from Victoria is skincare line that created BV-9 Platinum Provectus serum that contain bee venom to help keep wrinkles at bay and fight the signs of aging. And, finally unruly Vodka also from Vancouver Island is just really cool and the honey adds just the slightest hint of sweetness. 

Watch our bugs Aromaflage is here. Natural, organic and super effective bug spray free of DEET, chemicales and parabens. This has been tried and tested by us this summer, on the boat, in the back yard and at the lake and work, trust and give it a try!


Our best selling tank of the summer from Good Husbands Apparel, the North Shore tank is a hot commodity that we cannot keep in stock. There are more coming in I swear.  

Time to hit the pool in sexy black one piece from Lspace, with a Pendleton / Mara Hoffman towel, Tkees flip flops on your feet and Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion to give you perfect beachy hair. 

That's all for now. Kisses.
