Toronto’s Evio Beauty, which just launched a new line of natural colour cosmetics, will be hosting an evening pop-up on April 19 at Evio HQ (555 Richmond Street West, Unit 909).

Misfit Studio will be bringing its beloved movement classes to pop-up spaces in multiple cities: 96 Ossington (formerly The Local), Free Space, MOCA and Stackt, all in Toronto; TurF and The Garden Strathcona in Vancouver; and ELMNT Studio and LOIC in Montreal. Keep an eye on the official class schedule for where and when.

Aldo is teaming up with Give Back Box to donate your previously loved shoes (or clothes or bags or accessories). How it works: pack a shoebox, print a free shipping label, and drop it off at UPS or USPS. Your shoebox contents will be routed to participating charities.

If you’re into cozy Canadiana, Roots is currently running a Warehouse Moving Sale, with an extra 50 percent off all final sale styles. You can shop it in stores and online until April 21.

Toronto-based undies brand Knix has started a podcast, Faces of Fertility, with the goal of destigmatizing issues like infertility, pregnancy loss and miscarriage.

Ulta Beauty, the biggest beauty retailer in the U.S., is reportedly eyeing an expansion into Canada. The Sephora rival is known for its high-low approach to merchandising, stocking products at all price points—totalling 25,000 products from 500 beauty brands, in fact.
