Beauty markers

Beauty markers

By Jennifer Campbell

Back in the olden days, one of my favourite times of year was shopping for school supplies. Nothing could quite top that new-notebook smell. Somehow, ordering Post-its from the Grand & Toy catalogue (my current m.o.) doesn’t have the same nerdy thrill. However, I recently came across a couple of products that sate my need to fill a pencil case.

Nicole by OPI’s Nic’s Sticks ($10, at select drugstores) are polish pens filled with eco-friendly colours that I would have killed for back when I was in my best friend Jodie’s room painting my nails five different colours. I think I’ll relive the glory days in “Form One Lime” green and “Two-Minute Makeover” silver. You can try them all on virtually at

The neutral/berry shades of CoverGirl’s new lipstick markers—officially Outlast Lipstain (shown, $10, at drugstores)—may be grown up, but you can still have fun with them. P&G’s makeup guru, Pat McGrath (who we would totally invite to our next slumber party) suggests putting a bit of gloss on top to dress them up. But we just love that they’ll last through the Doritos and Jolt Cola.
