"Go All The Way" HD Mascara

Mascara is definitely one of the most important cosmetic products and should always be in your cosmetic bag.  Mascara adds definition and brightens the eye area.  When time is of the essence, choose one coat of mascara over any other application.  Our clump-free and water resistant mascara is designed to bring lashes to the focus of everyone's attention.
Our Go All The Way HD Mascara is a "wet" formula mascara.  This formula allows you to manoeuvre the product with ease, adding volume where needed.  It also features a dual-sided brush: one side to focus on volume, the other to emphasize length.
Available in black and formulated for 3 or more clump free coats; what more could you ask for?
For more information or to pre-order, please email or visit MJ Studios on facebook.

Use our HD Pressed Rice Powder alone to control shine from excess oil throughout the day. Use it to freshen the appearance of your skin throughout the day without looking or feeling dry or cakey. Packaged for convenience, it is the ultimate "take me with you" product.

After countless hours of details such as colour selection, packaging selection, working with our amazing graphics designer, or anxiously waiting for FedEx or UPS to show up: we are proud to announce that we have done it SASKATCHEWAN! M1 HD COSMETICS and M2 VIRTUOUS MINERAL COSMETICS are available for purchase right here in Regina.

A word from MJ:

"The entire production process of the M1 AND M2 cosmetic lines has created awe among the residents of Saskatchewan.  YES...this big of a cosmetics company can be developed by a Saskatchewan makeup artist and YES the two cosmetic lines are elite and manufactured as quality, high-end products. These products were not produced in my basement. We have worked with certified chemists and companies specializing in packaging and pad printing. Our products will not be marketed from independent sales reps but instead will be sold by qualifying retailers and directly from our facebook page, blog and soon, our website"

As a Saskatchewan Makeup Artist, finding MJ's niche into this growing industry was very simple; staying true to her roots and herself, and not only making women look beautiful but inspiring them to be their own kind of beautiful. All colour selections and combinations have been hand selected by MJ herself. These colour collections are all tried, true and tested colours from 15 years of working in the cosmetic industry. Using this experience and listening to the requests and requirements of real women, MJ was able to take the best of the best in the cosmetic industry and create two amazing cosmetic lines. The result: Makeup Artist quality products designed for the everyday women.

We remain dedicated to providing quality products and realistic education for the "real" women of Saskatchewan. We remain focused on exhibiting and promoting the M1 and M2 cosmetic lines in Regina and Saskatchewan as a province. TOGETHER we WILL put SASKATCHEWAN on the cosmetics map!

Magic Cauldron Holistic & Psychic Day 2011

Our launch event was this past weekend and we're happy to say that it went well! 

We had a great day and had a lot of fun! The day started early with setup and we were really happy when it was finally time to reveal our beautiful 2 series cosmetics line. People really enjoyed the services that we provided throughout the day. Richelle was on hand to provide a VIP brow service and MJ was providing complimentary makeovers and education sessions. We received tons of positive feedback and many people were amazed with our overall presentation and product selection. Many thanks to those who stopped in and to those we had the pleasure of meeting that day.

MJ had the opportunity to speak about the line and our philosophy at the event as well! We received a number of comments regarding the integrity expressed throughout her presentation. Tears of excitement and gratitude were found on both of our faces.

Special thanks to Denise Burant and Tracy Shepherd for inviting us to exhibit and for hosting a very successful event. Another special thanks to our family and close friends. Thank you for believing in our dream, for your help and support.

We are in the process of finalizing details for our next trade show. Stay tuned - you won't want to miss this one!
