Is there anything better than the perfect velvety matte lipstick? What about finding one that is perfectly pigmented and is made locally? Check and check. Laura Clerici, the founder of Makeup Addict, is going viral with her collection of high-quality, Canadian-made lipsticks. With two decades of industry experience as a professional makeup artist, Laura was inspired to create a product that is not only long-lasting (4-6 hours to be exact), but also smells great, is chemical-free and is safe around children. “I really wanted to produce something that wasn’t just another brand in a store, and create awareness for small businesses and Canadian manufacturing,” says Laura. Makeup Addict receives feedback from makeup lovers and bloggers across the globe raving about the quality of its collections — Dainty, in the Liquid Velvet line, is the most popular.
