Diorskin Forever Extreme Control Perfect Matte pressed powder makeup creates a shine-proof complexion that stays vibrant from morning to night, even under the most extreme conditions.
This compact powder contains smart blotting particles, a mesh of incredibly fine mattifying mineral powders that absorb oil and keep your skin looking fresh.
The unique correction formula blends seamlessly with skin and delivers tone with lightweight, pampering comfort. Day after day, Forever Extreme Control Perfect Matte powder’s poreless effect skincare essence targets pores to help refine your skin’s texture. The powder can be used alone or over foundation makeup.
Climatic changes can wreak havoc on skin, causing both irritation and dryness, which only increases after age 40.
That is why the French derma-cosmetic company Filorga has developed a new skin-reactivating Oil-Absolute elixir that helps to undo the degradation of external and internal aging factors, including those that produce wrinkles, sagging, dark spots and loss of radiance.
Enriched with liquid amber and four precious oils (jojoba, apricot, camelia and buruti), this all-in-one serum nourishes skin with stem cell regenerating hexapeptides along with antioxidant polyphenols to boost skin’s natural defense mechanisms.
Oil-Absolute leaves skin’s texture sublimely renewed and has a non-greasy, satiny feel. Skin looks fresher and younger after just 30 days of use.
The Eyes Have It
If you really want your eyes to stand out, Revlon’s Love Is On collection has a Colorstay Brow Crayon that perfectly defines brows in one stroke and stays put all day long.
And for a more sculptures brow, Revlon’s Colorstay Brow Pencil is waterproof and has an angled tip plus a blending brush to allow you to shape and define every hair.
Both products last up to 24 hours, and come with tips on the back to help you create the brows of your dreams.
Also, Revlon’s Colorstay 2 in 1 Angled Kajal Waterproof Eyeliner will help you frame your eyes for a dramatic stand-out look.
And Revlon’s Colorstay Creme Eye Shadows glide on like a gel but dry to a soft, powdery finish.
Ducray has launched a new ultra-gentle shampoo that is both eco-friendly and suited to the entire family (even babies and toddlers).
Ducray Extra-Doux Dermo-Protected Shampooing for frequent use has a fresh-scented, mild texture especially that protects the scalp, tames hair and restores strength, beauty and shine to delicate tresses.
Its biodegradable composition was created to minimize environmental impact, and its paraben-free, pH-balanced formula will not sting or irritate eyes.
Extra-Doux joins Ducray’s other specialized haircare range, including Sabal, designed for oil hair, Nutricerat, for dry hair, and Sensinol, for delicate and itchy scalps.
The company also makes a Neoptide serum to help stimulate hair grown and slow balding in men and women. Ducray is the number one haircare line in Europe.
Keep That Color
Wella Koleston has three new haircare products to help you keep that just-dyed color all month long.
The first is the line’s traditional Koleston permanent hair color that lasts for up to six weeks, and which now comes with a special Color Reactivator that will revitalize your shade on day 15 after coloring.
Also, Koleston has a new temporary, 10-minute root retouching dye that can be used between permanent colorings.
And for the last-minute events when you just don’t have time to dye your hair, there is the line’s save-the-day Retoque Raíz 3, an easy-to-use spray that temporarily covers roots with natural-looking color in just three seconds.
This wash-out color retouch system is available in five shades: black, dark brown, light brown, medium blonde and red.
To promote the new collection, Wella, which is the European expert in permanent hair color, has hired Mexican film and television star Jacqueline Bracamontes as its haircare ambassador.
