One of the breakout makeup products of this year is Clinique’s multitasking Beyond Perfecting liquid foundation.
Makeup junkies are loving this foundation because it combines a foundation and concealer in one formula yet it delivers lightweight, full coverage.
For those of us who prefer powder foundation, Clinique is now offering the same 2-in-1 formula in a powder format. Beyond Perfecting Powder Foundation + Concealer is a weightless powder makeup that lets your skin breathe with 13 shades that stay true.
The powder has a matte, natural finish (good for those of us with oily skin) and offers a versatile coverage: medium to full coverage with a lightweight feel. The coverage is pretty good if you want to cover skin issues like red spots or the odd blemish.

Contouring is still the rage, but it’s taking on a new form for beauty brands like Estée Lauder.
I heard about this new frontier of contouring at a recent Beauty Trend presentation in Vancouver and just had to share it with you.
Contouring Skin Care
The New Dimension range from Estée Lauder includes two new skin care products designed to create facial volume and reflect the skin’s best qualities.
When it comes to aging, loss of volume is a big deal as it can cause your eyes to look sunken and your cheeks to hollow out.
This serum targets the cheeks and jawline with a pro-collagen complex. Over time, expect to see your face look more defined and radiant.
Are you a sucker for multitasking products? If you answered yes, you’ll want to check out a new addition to Clinique’s foundation portfolio: Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer.
Beyond Perfecting features an oil-free formula that combines a liquid foundation and concealer for long-lasting (12 hours) yet lightweight, full coverage. The consistency is creamy yet it still keeps shine under control.
The foundation comes with a unique wand applicator that lets you use the foundation based on the level of coverage you want:
- Use the doe foot part to apply dots all over your face or sideways to spread across your cheeks.
- Use the tip of the wand to cover smaller imperfections.
NEW Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer is available in 20 wearable shades for Skin Types 2 and 3. When I was selecting my shade (I’m fair skinned), I was impressed with the range and was able to pick up the perfect match!
Just when I was thinking about picking up a Clarisonic , there’s a new facial cleansing device on the scene to complicate matters.
The LUNA™ mini from FOREO is a facial brush with 1,300 nonabrasive silicone touch-points that provide deep and gentle cleansing using sonic technology (up to 8,000 pulsations per minute).
Suitable for all skin types, the thicker touch-points on the reverse side are designed to deeply cleanse oilier skin, while the thinner touch-points gently channel pulsations and are best for sensitive or dry skin.
News flash! Nude lips are a big makeup trend this fall season. So now couldn’t be a better time to explore a new nude lip collection.
If you’ve never tried a product from NYX Cosmetics, here’s your chance and you won’t be disappointed.
The Simply Nude Lip collection includes six moisturizing lip pencils in every shade of the nude rainbow from pink to deep beige.
The six shades are:
- Peaches (nude peach)
- Exposed (reddish brown)
- Disrobed (pink brown)
- Fairest (pink beige)
- Honey (nude beige)
- Sable (deep brown with pink undertone)
Wear these shades with a smoky eye or a natural look and you’re good to go!

Getting rid of wrinkles may now be as simple as sleeping on the right bedding. SkinGlow™ Cupron® Copper Technology bedding features copper-infused linen that promises to restore your skin’s texture and tone.
According to a clinical study by the manufacturer, sleeping on the copper-oxide containing pillowcase for at least four weeks “will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crows feet around the eyes and will improve the skin’s overall appearance while you sleep.”
New way to Experience Web, Email, and Photos
Your favorite spring accessory for 2010 may be a patterned Marc Jacobs scarf or a matte silver cuff. Or, it just may be your Apple iPad tablet introduced yesterday by Apple CEO, Steve Jobs.
According to Jobs, the iPad is a better device for reading books, watching videos, and playing games than a laptop or a smart phone. The iPad has a 9.7-inch touch screen and weighs about 1.5 pounds (just the right fit for your oversized leather saddle bag).
