A few weeks ago I got invited by Pari Beauty and Farah (Faces by Farah and founder of Toronto Beauty Bloggers) to attend the Pari Beauty event at the Novotel Hotel in Downtown Toronto. To be honest I had never heard of the brand prior to the event so I no idea what to expect.
We got to meet Shaun one of the founders of Pari Beauty and Amanda their Account Manager who also happens to be a makeup artist. Here are a few tidbits that we learned of the beauty brand:
- Pari means "a heavenly beautiful woman" in Sanskrit
- One of the co-founders is a PHD Chemist so all of their products are formulated in-house
- Pari is used in makeup schools all around the world
- Their No More Circles Eye Gel contains an ingredient called Arnica which is good for dark circles
- The is no Titanium Dioxide in any of their foundations and all product is HD ready
- When Makeup Forever decided to pull their line out of the Sears stores, Pari Beauty was asked to take over the space

Shaun and Andrea also showed us many of their popular products. One product I was intrigued by was the Skin Perfecting Veil and Primer. Andrea had raved about it because she never use to believe in skin primers. But this one had changed her perception. I have actually been using this for a few weeks now and I actually like it. At first I thought it felt heavy when I swatched it but after putting it on my face and using it after a while it's actually pretty lightweight and feels wonderful on my skin. It really does fill in all the fine lines in my face. I sometimes wear this alone when I don't have time to wear foundation. The results are flawless!
