Full confession; when Diana and I were young and started buying our cosmetics at the department stores, we totally fell for to the whole gift with purchase marketing. Clinique GWP with one of those cute little cosmetics bag, yes please! That was then and this is now and we are hard to please and hard to impress. Call us jaded or whatever you will but the last time we saw the words "gift with purchase" we just kept on walking. I guess brands are realizing the same because they're really stepping up their game because we just got our hands on the most epic GWP we've ever laid our eyes on and it's from Murale! Phew! Deep breath!
If you haven't heard of Murale, here's the story.
Murale is Shopper's Drug Mart's little sister but she's all about the glam.
"Murale provides access to the world’s best beauty brands and enhances the shopping experience with an elevated level of expertise and personalized service."
You can find top brands like Eve Lom, Tata Harper, Chanel, Juice Beauty and Bobbi Brown, across their five Canadian stores. Just in case you're wondering, yes, you can totally collect your Shopper's Optimum points at Murale!
Murale's gift with purchase includes everything you see here, minus the marble tray. That you have to buy on your own. LOL. We even love the grey wool tote bag that's included because it's perfect for fall!
This GWP is available at Murale stores starting this month.
Nars Orgasm is probably the brands best-known shade. This pinky-coral shimmery lipstick is flattering on most skin tones and layers beautifully with other lipstick shades.
Juice Beauty is a natural brand that's been around for sometime now but it's getting more traction now that Gwenyth Paltrow is their Creative Director. We secretly love Gwenyth here at Lipsick so we're excited to try the Phyto-Pigments Liquid Lipstick. It's more of a gloss than anything else and this pinky colour looks great alone or layered on top of other lipsticks.

Make sure to pencil in a good chunk of time at Murale because you're never going to want to leave. Diana and I are both obsessed with the Chanel counter! I saved up enough Shopper's Optimum points to splurge on my Chanel L'eau No 5 this summer along with a few Chanel lipsticks.
