Invisible Makeup. Visible Perfection: Georgio Armani Beauty Introduces Neo Nude

 

 

NEO-NUDE2

Supremely fine, weightless textures; ultimate skin comfort with long-lasting, luminous hold; a masterclass in flawless nude beauty. Since its creation in 2000, Giorgio Armani beauty has been the expert in empowering women to achieve a flawless complexion with a completely natural result, guided by the philosophy of ultimate beauty.

It’s you – but better. It’s your Armani nude.

Now Giorgio Armani beauty introduces a complete Neo Nude range for skin, cheeks and lips, with the promise of “no makeup makeup” perfection: a perfection that looks real. Invisible, mistake-proof, sensorial – it delivers everything a woman needs to feel confident and to embody the signature Armani glow.

Giorgio Armani Neo Nude Fusion Powder

 To match the needs of a demanding modern lifestyle, in which women want to achieve natural beauty on-the-go, Giorgio Armani beauty introduces Neo Nude Fusion Powder: the first finishing powder to combine similar ingredients and luminosity of a liquid foundation, with the clean application and nomadic practicality of a compact. Backed by 10 years of research, with Neo Nude Fusion Powder Giorgio Armani beauty reveals two groundbreaking patent technologies.

Liquid or powder foundation? Fusion Perfection is born.

Floating weightlessly onto the skin like a cloud, the secret to its brilliance lies in Giorgio Armani beauty Laboratories’ new patent: the water memory formulation process. During formulation, water within the powder evaporates, leaving a powder texture behind. Upon contact with the natural moisture found within the skin, the process is reversed: the powder transforms into a veil-like liquid that becomes one with the skin, avoiding harsh lines, smears or caking over time. A second patent* allows a soft weightless powder – so thin it appears invisible.

Mix, build, blend, create your own bare-skin beauty. Available in 12 shades, Neo Nude Fusion Powder contains a high-performance colour fusion emulsion with advanced pigments that maintain a skin-matching veil, which stays true no matter how many touch-ups you make throughout the day.

Even, natural and radiant, the beauty of the skin is amplified, thanks to a sensorial, ‘new skin’ feel. It’s as if flawless radiance were entirely natural. Alternatively, the powder can be used for a bronzing effect. To ensure the application process is clean, the refillable compact is accompanied by a soft, synthetic brush. It’s so mistake-proof that it can be applied with eyes closed.

With Neo Nude Fusion Powder, the time-short woman of today can carry the practicality of a powder – yet achieve the luminosity of a liquid. Now, you can have the best of both worlds.

63fa2bd54fc9ea5f4100862ba61fa7bb

Enhance your natural beauty. To empower and enhance this individual beauty come three products to complete the Neo Nude range. Water-based, each one instantly fuses with the skin, comforting and hydrating whilst simultaneously adding radiance. Naked feel, nude perfection – your ‘no make-up make-up’ finish lies entirely within your own hands.

So light, the products promise to blend seamlessly with one another. The new pointed applicator of all three also collects precisely the right dose of formula to accentuate your most natural beauty.

Giorgio Armani Neo Nude A-Contour

Two cool browns to sculpt and define your natural beauty, melting on contact with the contours of the face, the water-based formula seduces impeccable cheekbones into the limelight.

 

Giorgio Armani Neo Nude A-Blush

A-Blush: From light to dark pink, through brightening orange, five shades deliver a weightless, healthy cheek glow. A wash of colour gives skin a healthy flush, so natural it looks like you – but better.

 

Giorgio Armani Neo Nude A-Highlight

Amplify your freshest glow with light pink or pale champagne. A second skin feel that dresses skin in a glowing veil.

Three liquid textures that leave an ultra-fine film of colour on the skin. They melt, they blend, they build: together they empower your ultimate Neo Nude glow.

 

Giorgio Armani Neo Nude Ecstasy Balm

excstasy-balm-neo-nude-armani

Sublimate your natural lip color. Your bare-skin canvas complete, Neo Nude Ecstasy Balm brings nude perfection to the lips, kissing them in a veil of colour that delivers comfort and hydration for eight hours.

The shine of a gloss meets the care of a balm; antioxidant caper oil adds softness with every application. Your lips, but better – day after day. Shiny oils reflect the light, bringing impeccable luminosity in a non-sticky formula.

Available in three lip-enhancing shades, the radiant glow is made possible thanks to a unique ‘top-filling’ process: this tailor-made process involves alternating between heating and cold, to enable crystallization. In time, it leads to a soft, lightweight texture with radiant mirror shine that’s effortless to blend and apply.

Melting upon contact, outshining traditional lip products, the wardrobe of shades allows you to gently enhance your natural tone – or power it up, by building a stronger colour.

Ecstasy Balm Deep Nude – softens the lip tone with a subtle plum shade
Ecstasy Balm Soft Nude – empower lips’ natural beauty with a confident, sheer shade
Ecstasy Balm Neo Nude – lifts the lip colour to a pretty rose shade

Effortless to apply, shiny care that lasts and lasts. Your lips, your rules. Pick a shade – then let your natural beauty shine through.

 

 

Application: ‘No Make-Up Make-Up’ your way 

Alternative-visual-3.jpg

For an ultra-natural Armani glow, prepare your skin with Prima Glow-on Moisturizing Balm. Apply then the illuminating concealer High Precision Retouch, followed by Neo Nude Fusion Powder to perfect your skin. Add a touch of A-highlight where your complexion needs to be brightened up.

Linda Cantello, Giorgio Armani International Make-Up Artist

Every woman knows her own face best of all. So try, apply, blend. Create your own custom routine to invisible makeup and visible perfection.

To prepare:

‘No make-up make-up’ starts with the perfect canvas. Prepare skin by applying Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Balm, to drench skin with moisture and add hold to your make-up that follows.

Armani Prima Day Long Sking Perfector blurs away the appearance of oiliness by regulating sebum production, when applied to the eyelids, around the nose, chin and other shine-prone areas. Plumped and hydrated, the canvas is complete.

To perfect: 

Use the made-to-measure Giorgio Armani beauty kabuki brush to dress skin in a weightless veil of Neo Nude Fusion Powder. It can also be used as a finishing powder, after foundation. Instantly, it evens out the tone, smooths and adds radiance. Skin looks as good as new. High Precision Retouch Concealer corrects imperfections when applied where needed, to the eye contour, dark shadows and blemishes.

To enhance:

A-Contour: Apply two drops to the side of the cheek, near the hairline, and blend horizontally towards the nose. Sweep it down either side of the nose. Finally, add a touch to your chin, blending downwards to the neck to sculpt and define the face.

A-Blush: Dot it onto the upper apples of the cheeks and blend for a naturally healthy flush. Or, use your fingertips to blend it up towards the temples, to lift the face and showcase your eyes.

A-Highlight: Blend over the upper cheekbones, temples and onto the brow bones to create structure. Pat onto your Cupid’s Bow to bring out lips’ natural shape and fullness. Then amplify with a three-dimensional skin finish by sweeping it down the bridge of the nose.

To sublimate:

Gently enhance your natural lips tone by applying Ecstasy Balm.

To finish:

Apply Eyes To Kill Mascara. Define brows naturally with Eye & Brow Maestro, selecting the shade that’s closest to your hair colour.

Invisible make-up; natural perfection. It can only be your Armani Neo Nude look. Come into the world of Armani Beauty

 

 

 

 

Sisley launches new Le Phyto Rouge lipsticks in 20 shades

SISLEY-PHYTO-ROUGE-visuel-mannequin-HD.jpg

Sisley Paris introduces a new version of its signature lipstick – Le Phyto Rouge. Announced as a vibrant, sensory, caring lip color, the Phyto Rouge lipstick debuts next month in 20 dynamic beautiful shades.

The intensity of a lipstick and a balm-like sensation in an exceptional skin care formula

Le Phyto Rouge Lipstick features a long-lasting moisturizing formula that provides a daily dose of protection against pollution, UV rays, and even cigarette smoke. This colorful multitasker that combines the best of makeup and skincare delivers instant and continuous hydration that soothes and enhances lips for no less than 8 hours. Its soft and creamy, enveloping texture is due to a trio of esters, oils and waxes that form a soothing film on the lips, giving a balm-like, comfortable effect.

40246051_1789972434452988_6045658139227814791_n.jpg

Formulated with the cutting edge Hydrobooster Complex, the lipstick is, for the first time ever, infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Konjac Glucomannans. The powerful duo, delivered as filling microspheres, locks-in moisture to create visibly plumper, smoother and fuller lips.

An ultra-silky hydrating lipstick with comforting skin care properties and has a plumping, smoothing and more voluminous effect of the lips.

The unique anti-aging and hydration-boosting formula is also enriched with Camelia oil, which nourishes and keeps the lips soft and elastic, and Jojoba oil, to keep lips smooth and comfortable. Finally, the formula includes Padina pavonica, a hydrating and plumping ingredient that promotes Hyaluronic Acid synthesis and, with continued daily application, visibly enhances lip volume.

Phyto_Rouge_Photo_Ambiance_12.jpg

Sisley Le Phyto Rouge Lipstick is available in 20 shades, divided into four color harmonies. Each of the shades comes in the same, zebra-striped gold packaging with magnetic closure, inspired by Sisley’s Twist line.

With a bevelled tip, you can apply the colour straight from the bullet to experience what the brand calls ‘glide-on texture and a balm-life effect’.

Marc Jacobs Glam Glitter Eyeshadow

N0X6vv9wvXGU.gif

Marc Jacobs See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow Runway Edition is a limited edition glitter eyeshadow packed with bold pigment to deliver maximum sparkle. The formula is created using an innovative demi-pressed process, which allows the pigments to apply more vividly.

The ‘sequin-finish’ eyeshadows are created using a ‘demi-pressed’ process to preserve the colour pigments in each shade, so the product really pops on eyelids once applied. Each shadow can be used as an intense glitter, or can be blended out for a ‘soft wash’ of sparkle.

Marc-Jacobs-Glitter-Eye-Shadow-Banner

The formula can easily be applied with a fingertip or brush and gives lids an instant dose of shimmer and shine. Applied lightly to bare lids, the product provides a pretty wash of colour. Or, layered over another eyeshadow, or on a sticky primer, it gives eyes a bold, party-ready look.

The formula is supposed to add a ‘super-shimmering dimension to any look’ with a ‘demi-pressed process’ that has ‘high-impact dazzle with smooth glide and bold color’. It can be ‘packed on for intense glitter or blended for a soft wash of sparkle’. I recommend packing it on with a fingertip or using a flat, synthetic brush in a gentle pressing motion.

Marc Jacobs actually launched two shades of these earlier in the Fall but the limited edition shade range for the Holidays is up to six! The range, which is part of the larger Marc Jacobs Beauty holiday collection, was inspired by the ‘anything-goes esthetic from the Mod Era’, according to the brand materials.

o.18871.408

Marc Jacobs See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow is abailable in six beautiful shades:

Flashlight 80 (icy opal)
Gleam Girl 82 (champagne beige)
Glam Noir 84 (icy black)
Copperazi 86 (fiery copper)
Glamethyst 88 (sparkling amethyst)
Topaz Flash 90 (smoky bronze)

While the formula crease throughout the day without a primer, it is easy to quickly blend back to a smooth, crease-free finish. The formula stays in place, doesn’t melt around the eye area and the glitter doesn’t migrate.

Pro tip: Or, layered over another eyeshadow, or on a sticky primer, it gives eyes a bold, party-ready look. Available in glittering jewel tones they can obviously be used on eyes but also on your cheeks or body to add a luminous sparkle!

Looking to sparkle this season? Try these picks to get glittery in a flash. Marc Jacobs See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow is available now. Come into the wonderful world of Marc Jacobs.

Clé de Peau Beauté: This Luxe Cushion Foundation Is Going To Be Your New BFF

 

Clé-de-Peau-Beauté-Radiant-Cushion-Foundation-Banner-02

Japanese luxury beauty brand Clé de Peau Beauté is known for products that feel great and actually work. And by that we mean their products give obvious results that you can see with the naked eye. So when we found out that it was going to launch its first cushion compact, we were intrigued.

Hydrating Essence Complex provides and seals in moisture, preventing dryness for up to 24 hours. It helps the foundation to blend effortlessly, creating a dewy, fresh-looking finish.

The brand initially never planned to create a cushion foundation, but finally caved to pressure from many of its fans and customers who were constantly asking for one. If you’ve ever tried any of Clé de Peau Beauté concealers or bases, you probably already know that no one does natural-looking makeup that feels more like skincare quite like them.

Long-Wear Cushion Gel helps the foundation to glide over pores and texture. Flexible, bouncy, bonding coverage with skin. Responding to its movement during the day. Resisting creasing and shine for all-day wear.

The Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Cushion Foundation has an ultra-fine texture that glides over skin and gives a weightless, dewy finish. But don’t be fooled. It can conceal flaws and hide pores with just one layer. It’s made with a long-wear cushion gel that feels almost bouncy, which allows it to move with your face without creasing or caking.

Clé-de-Peau-Beauté-Radiant-Cushion-Foundation-Closed-OpenEven in hot and humid weather you’ll be surprised that you don’t need to touch up even once throughout the day. Your complexion look fresh, radiant and shine-free for more than 12 hours. And even more importantly, your skin looks like skin, so people can barely tell you have anything on at all.

Soft Refocusing Powder gives a diffused effect over the surface of the skin, while also directing light beneath it to give lit-from-within luminosity. It has a natural-looking coverage, even when layered.

Another major plus: it is infused with a complex of platinum golden silk and Japanese pearls to hydrate, repair damage and boost radiance, so it acts almost like a serum. With continuous use, this multi-tasker will even help to boost skin clarity and smooth roughness. When you got your hands on the Radiant Cushion Foundation, you won’t be able to leave home without it.
