Toronto is one of North America’s fashion centres, meaning it’s one of the best places to go for custom cosmetics and fashion. We’ve picked five of the best fashion and beauty destinations in Toronto for you to visit and get your glam on!
Toronto is home to Canada’s only Lip Lab location, where you can mix and create your perfect shade of lipstick. The process is fun and simple, and you get to work with one of their Colour Experts to choose your shade, add a finish, add a scent, and even engrave a chosen name for your new lip colour! The best part? Once you’ve created your lipstick, you’ll be able to reorder it exactly the same again and again from their online store. This is an awesome experience solo, or level up and go for a bachelorette party or birthday with a group. Be sure to follow them on Instagram @liplab for announcements and new product launches!
Le Labo offers a luxurious fragrance-creating experience, allowing you to create perfumes, candles and bath & body products with their own unique scents.
