Elle Canada 2015 Beauty Grand Prix

This past February, I was sent a hefty box filled with full sized skincare and cosmetics from Elle Canada to test and evaluate them. The products were all concealed with pretty holographic stickers so they remained brand-less to keep reviews unbiased, but if you're a regular shopper, you'll recognize most of the packaging. As a first time juror, I was thrilled. It was like Christmas in spring!


The following are the items asssigned to me.

The largest items in the box were the bottles of haircare (shampoo and conditioner) from four different brands.
Next came four skincare items- creams for the face.


Then five lipsticks and glosses in various textures and forms.
I was mailed fairly neutral shades, save for the cherry red and deep crimson.
The package also included two bronzers.
One with shades of bronze, some matte and some with shimmer, mixed in with a smattering of pink .
The second one was a medium bronzer with just the faintest but of shimmer.


What I have to do with these items is use them and review them. I have to fill in an online logbook and give ratings, likes and dislikes. Jurors are given 12 weeks for this process and by May 22nd (which is coming up) everything should have been tested and evalutated. I have yet to use the 'mosaic bronzer', so that's what I'll be working on this week.


Do you recognize any of these items?
