2020 may have brought many unwanted surprised, but one thing we're eternally grateful for is our new reality TV goddess Christine Quinn, star of hit Netflix show Selling Sunset.
Like us, most of you probably spent the second half of lockdown desperate for the world to return to 'normal'. Then came Selling Sunset, an LA-based, The Hills-esque reality show that acted as the perfect escapism during a time where we wanted to be anywhere but home. And with it, it brought Christine, the diva of all divas but most of all, a constant mood.
In fact, ever since the show, we've been obsessed with her. Combining her fabulously over-the-top style and consist immaculately beat face, to her boss b*tch attitude, genius work ethic (two words: burgers & botox) and a billionaire husband, can you blame us? That's why whenever she dishes out any advice, we're all ears - especially when it comes to beauty.
Our first-ever VIRTUAL Beauty Mingle event is kicking off this Saturday with the QUEEN of the red vinyl lip, @theChristineQuinn from #SellingSunset! Grab your tickets (100% of proceeds will go to @runforwomen!) or just tune in to our IG live at noon EST this Saturday, September 12 to chat all things beauty with Christine. See you there! #BeautyLover #BeautyMingle Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty (opens in new tab)

Recently, Christine appeared on an Instagram live beauty event with Canadian drugstore chain, Shoppers Drug Mart. She revealed some of her favourite skincare products so, naturally, we took note 😍 .
One product she swore by was a popular Vitamin C serum that you may be familiar with, Origins Ginzing Into the Glow Brightening Serum (opens in new tab). The multi-action serum is not only packed with Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid but contains Origin's 5% Skin-Renewing Complex with Green Coffee Seed known to help support the skin’s natural enzymatic action which boosts cell turnover for smoother skin texture and reduces pores.
The serum has many rave reviews online, so it looks like Christine isn't the only fan. "This serum made my skin look brighter," one customer wrote, while another said: "Really love this product! Smells amazing and is great. My skin has looked much clearer since using this."
Why not try it out for yourself? We certainly will.
If it's good enough for Queen Christine, it's good enough for us.
