Three Ways to Use the Impossible Glow Drops

Have you heard of Pai Skincare's Impossible Glow Drops? Learn how to customize this liquid highlighter to get your glow in time for summer!

Have you tried the Impossible Glow drops from Pai Skincare? The brand first launched this skincare-makeup hybrid product back in 2021. It was so well received that Pai decided to launch two new shades: Champagne and Rose Gold. These highlighters offer a lit-from-within glow in just a few drops. With summer just around the corner, and bronzed, glowing skin making its comeback, we’ve decided to share with you three ways to use the Impossible Glow drops.

1.  For subtle radiance, add one drop to your daily moisturizer or SPF.

2. For a more intense glow, massage one to two drops directly onto skin.

3. For a lit-from-within highlight, gently dab on the high points of the face and body.

Pro tip: add a few drops to your body lotion and apply to the legs, shoulders and collarbone for an irresistible glow.

Which shade is best for me?

Although all shades work for all skin tones, you may be wondering which one would complement your skin tone the best. If that’s the case, here are Pai Skincare’s suggestions:

  • If your skin has pink undertones, you might prefer the Rose Gold shade.
  • If your skin has more yellow undertones, you might prefer the Champagne shade.
  • If you’re looking for a warm, sunkissed glow, go for the original shade: Bronze.

Pai’s pro tip? Experiment! All shades work for all skin tones – it’s all about finding the right application to create the effect you’re after.

The Etiket Traveler

Winter Vacation Essentials

Not sure what to pack for a winter getaway? Discover the skincare, makeup and haircare essentials I'm packing for my upcoming tropical vacation!

I’m jetting off. In an attempt to flee the cold Canadian winter we’ve been enduring, I’ve booked a trip with my friends to the tropical island of Turks and Caicos. I always pack light when I travel, especially when I’m going somewhere warm. A few bathing suits, shorts, a sundress or two, and of course, some beauty essentials. Keep reading to discover the products I can’t possibly leave without!

SKINCARE

Let me preface this blog post by saying that I will be checking a bag. When you’re like me and are unwilling to compromise on skincare and beauty products, you always check a bag. Trying to fit all of your essentials into that small plastic bag TSA gives you at the airport is a sport, and I want no part of it. For my cleanser, I’m bringing the Pro-Derm Gentle Cleanser. It’s been a staple in my skincare routine for over a year now and I just can’t get enough. I will also be adding my Phloretin CF Vitamin C Serum from SkinCeuticals. I use it everyday, but it’s especially important when you’re getting a lot of sun exposure. As you may or may not know, vitamin C compensates for sunscreen’s inherent shortcomings by neutralizing the free radical damage that sun exposure causes. They literally play a defensive role by diffusing the effects of the bad rays that make it through your sunscreen.

For sunscreen, I will be bringing my Sunforgettable Enviroscreen Protection Face Shield and the Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen to re-apply my SPF throughout the day. In the event that I get a little too much sun, I like to bring a soothing moisturizer for my skin, just in case. The Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion is definitely a must when venturing off on a beach getaway. Like a wheatgrass shot for your skin, this lotion delivers powerful antioxidants and nourishing, soothing ingredients that help skin bounce-back after a day in the sun. For my body, I use the new COOLA Mineral Sunscreen Spray. It’s lightweight, offers SPF30 protection and is water-resistant!

MAKEUP

I like to keep my makeup simple when I’m on vacation. The weather is hot and humid, so I’m usually either in the water or dabbing my face with blotting papers. For that reason, minimal makeup is key. I’ve decided to bring the RMS ‘Un’ Cover-Up to use as a concealer and to cover-up any imperfections. I’m also bringing ILIA’s Limitless Lash Mascara and the Colorescience Color Balm Collection. This kit comes with three balm shades: blush, berry, bronze. The great thing about these shades is that they can work as a blush, bronzer, eye shadow and lip tint. Plus, they offer SPF50 protection. When I travel, I look for versatility in my products, and the Color Balm Collection offers just that!

HAIRCARE

I’m pretty simple when it comes to my hair. I will pack my favourite shampoo and conditionner duo: R&CO’s Gemstone Color Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as R&CO’s Rockaway Salt Spray. My hair is naturally curly, so I like to lean into the beach hair look when I’m at the beach. This spray adds volume and texture and just accentuates my natural beachy curls. I also pack Rahua’s Hydration Detangler, especially when I know I’m going to be spending my days in the ocean and at the pool! This product helps keep hair detangled, moisturizes hair, smooths frizz, prevents breakage and damage, and provides color-treated hair with photoprotection. Everything you need on a beach vacation.

Staff Favourites for 2021

To get a feel for the products that shined this past year, we asked a few of our staff members to pick their favourites of 2021 and to explain why they loved them so much. Let's discover our staff favourites of the past year!

As one does when entering a new year, we’re looking back on 2021 and the products that made it so special. To get a feel for the products that shined this past year, we asked a few of our staff members to pick their favourites of 2021 and to explain why they loved them so much. Some of their picks are established cult-favourites, others may surprise you… Let’s discover our staff favourites of the past year!

DAPHNE – SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF +34

I received a tester of this product earlier this year and didn’t expect to like it since I was already obsessed with EltaMD’s UV Clear SPF46. To my surprise, I fell in love with this one from SkinMedica. At first glance, it’s nothing special. Its texture and color makes it feel like any other sunscreen. However, when I melt it into my skin, it hydrates and leaves my skin looking airbrushed. For that reason, it makes for the perfect makeup primer. I even use it at night before I apply my makeup to go out! My pores look smaller, my skin isn’t as oily. I don’t know how, but it just makes my skin look better and that’s all that matters!

JORDANNA – The entire ILIA brand

The whole line! For the first time in my life I have fallen in love with a makeup brand. It does so much more than enhancing your beauty, the ingredients do wonders to treat you skin, lashes and brows.

MARIE-FRANCE – Huna Organic Nourishing Lip Shine

I have this lip balm on me at ALL times. What I love about it is that it hydrates my lips without me feeling like I need to re-apply it every 10 minutes. It also is formulated with nothing but natural ingredients which is a major plus for me, and it’s Canadian-made! Practical and inexpensive, everything you could want from a product!

PAULE – Pai Skincare’s Heavy Mettle Hand Cream

Wow!!! I have eczema, so this hand cream was a game-changer for me. It really helped me get through this past winter and is almost entirely organic! Here’s a quick tip on how to use it: apply a thick layer on your hands at night, right before bed, and cover them up with cotton gloves. The next morning your hands will be silky smooth!

KARINE – ZIIP

From the first day we launched ZIIP in the Etiket spaces, I was fascinated by this tiny device that receives praises from celebrity, beauty editors and men and women from all over the world. I had tested the product in the past, but it was only this year that I decided to go for it and purchase a device for myself. To be honest, after the first few times I used it, I didn’t really notice the ‘instant lift’ effect that everyone talked about. Only after using it consistently for a few weeks did I notice a difference, particularly around the eye area. Recently ZIIP added treatment plans to the app that allow you to follow a specific routine for a certain amount of time and the results are amazing! Do I recommend this product to everyone? Absolutely not. Only to those that are ready to commit. I compare the ZIIP device to going to the gym. You’re not going to see results if you only use it once in a while. You need be to consistent. If you do commit, you will see results!

SIMON – Tata Harper’s Hydrating Floral Mask

I love this mask as my skin gets dry and dehydrated in the cold and winter and after this it is always better. I use it as an overnight mask and when I wake up in the morning my skin is always smoother, hydrated and less red. It’s my go to Sunday self-care mask.

STEVE – Kat Burki’s Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm

This cleansing balm is definitely a holy grail product for me, especially in the winter months! It removes everything from my face at night, all while leaving my skin feeling hydrated and soft. It’s cleaning and nourishing my skin all at once. Because it contains vitamin C, it’s also brightening my complexion. There’s really nothing this cleansing balm can’t do!

Clarity Line – Nuori

How to fake a summer glow!

How to achieve the ultimate summer glow

What screams summer more than tan, glowing skin? While this look may be attractive to most, it is not the healthiest for our skin. What if we told you, however, that this sought-after look could be achieved with a few beauty products? Discover the products that will recreate a sunkissed look in no time!

What screams summer more than tan, glowing skin? While this look may be attractive to most, it is not the healthiest for our skin. In fact, many people don’t know that tanned skin is actually damaged skin. The melanin produced by your skin is its way of healing itself from the damage caused by the sun’s UV rays. We won’t bore you with the details, but just know that tanned isn’t a sign of healthy skin. In any case, tanned skin looks good. We get it. What if we told you, however, that this sought-after look could be achieved with a few beauty products?

Discover the products that will recreate a sunkissed look in no time!

GLOW

Glow is a term that first comes to mind when talking about summer skin. It represents youth, health, hydration, and an overall flawless complexion. To ensure that your skin is glowing at all times, sometimes you just have to fake it by reaching for a highlighter. If you prefer cream products, we recommend trying out the Living Luminizer or the Luminizer X Quad from RMS Beauty. Both offer a subtle radiance that is entirely buildable. If you prefer powder products, we recommend the new ILIA Daylite Highlighting Powder. Available in 4 shades, this highlighter offers a beautiful glow in a long-lasting formula.

BRONZE

Bronzed skin is a must when trying to achieve a sunkissed look. As previously mentioned, bronzed skin is not healthy skin, so you have to fake it till you make it! Luckily, we offer a selection of bronzers that give you a naturally bronzed look without ever having to step foot in the sun. If you prefer a cream texture, we recommend you take a look at the Buriti Bronzer from RMS Beauty. Apply it with your fingers for a more controlled application or with a beauty blender. If you prefer a powder, discover ILIA’s new Nightlite Bronzing Powders, or Glow Skin Beauty’s Bronzer. For a contoured look, you can even try Glo Skin’s Beauty Contour Kit!

BLUSH

We’ve all gotten sunburnt. It hurts. It’s not fun. BUT, when the sunburn is subtle, it can sometimes look cute, right? It just gives you a flush of color, especially when the sun hit the contours of your face, your nose and cheeks. To try and recreate the look without the damage, we love adding a flush of color to the nose and connect it to the cheeks. For this effect, we love ILIA’s Multi-Stick in At Last and RMS’ Lip2Cheek in the shade Beloved. Both give you that kissed-by-the-sun look effortlessly.
