“I would like to express how impressed I am with Shmink Cosmetics. We here at CTV Toronto have had the opportunity to experience many different lines of makeup; Shmink has a wonderful and diverse pallet of colours with great staying power. Shmink Cosmetics is hip and current, in tune with the trends and needs of the makeup world. I recommend that everyone try Shmink Cosmetics as they too will be pleased and become a regular customer.”
Ann Carman, CTV Station Manager, Montreal
“Shmink Cosmetics provide the quality of product, choice of colours and velvety textures that are unique in this industry. What truly makes Shmink unique, however, is the passion, care and understanding provided by its creator, Steven Reti.”
George Athans, Producer/Director, Athans Communications Inc.
“Steven Reti and his Shmink cosmetics have played a very important role in the production of Caribbean Workout, which is broadcast to more than 100 million households each day worldwide. His talent and amazing products have enhanced the look of the program, and all its on camera performers. Thanks for your contribution in making CW the best show of its kind on TV.”
Miranda Esmonde White, creator of the Esmonde Technique, and star of the American PBS network national fitness show Classical Stretch
“As the host of Classical Stretch I was looking for the highest quality makeup and makeup artist. I have found both with Shmink makeup and Steven Reti. No matter how long the hours are in front of the camera in the blazing Mexican heat, my makeup looks as good at the end of the day as in the morning. Shmink makeup and Steven’s artful application has taken ten years off my life, on camera as well as off.”
Mitch Charron, VP and General Manager, The Weather Network
“The Weather Network prides itself on creating win-win relationships, and our partnership with Shmink Cosmetics has been a resounding success. Our on-air presenters are thrilled with the quality, feel and colour of the cosmetics, and we are delighted with Steven Reti’s professional and passionate attention to our needs.”
Mose Persico, Producer and Host, Entertainment Spotlight, CTV Montreal
“Steven Reti and his Shmink Cosmetics line, played an integral role in the success of Entertainment Spotlight, a weekly entertainment magazine show, produced in Montreal, Canada. As the exclusive makeup on the show, Steven and his multi-talented staff gave the hosts and segment reporters a unique look, which reflected immensely in the overall production values of the program. Steven brings professionalism, competence and honesty to any production his team is involved in.”

SHMINK. This one little word means makeup in countries across Europe, but it has a much bigger meaning to us.
At SHMINK, we see beauty in everyone. We see potential, promise and possibility. We see the average woman’s desire to look anything but average. And we see it as our role to educate and empower her. It starts by demystifying makeup application. By taking the time to teach, while providing the tools to help women gain confidence, we can impact lives through colour and fashion, technique and choice, instruction and involvement.
Knowledge is beauty. That’s how we see it.
