Happy Canada Day! Canadian Products by Cocoon Apothecary and Coco & Lulu (by Cake Beauty) Swatch & Review

Featured Image: livingbetweenwednesdays.com

Firstly, Happy Canada Day to all those in the great white north! Canada is celebrating its 148th birthday today. I didn’t grow up in Canada, exactly (if anyone’s ever wondered why I don’t spell the Canadian/British way, this is why), but I’ve spent the vast majority of my adult years here and I could not be happier to be raising my baby son in this country.

Secondly, I apologize for reviewing a recently discontinued line of nail polish today, but it’s the only Canadian brand from which I own a red polish!

But, I am reviewing two Canadian products today, and the second product is by Cocoon Apothecary, which is definitely available! It is currently also 25% off at Well.ca (referral link, sale runs through this Sunday).

Brand: Coco & Lulu (by Cake Beauty)

I’ll cover the nail polish first. Coco & Lulu was a line of 3 Free Nail Lacquer created in 2013 by Toronto-based Cake Beauty for the Canadian books & lifestyle chain, Indigo/Chapters. I’m not 100% sure that the line is dead, but Indigo/Chapters no longer sells it online, and the line’s Twitter hasn’t been updated since, well, 2013.

The set a Paris-themed holiday release, which I bought the following January, for $14 on clearance. It included three colors: Champagne, Eiffel Tower, and Left Bank. I’ll review Eiffel Tower another day, but my Canada Day mani this year is Left Bank + Champagne.
