New beauty products – April
Puff ‘n’ stuff
Model Co, the creative cosmetic innovators who brought us the LashWand (thank you, thank you!) have done it again, launching what is quite possibly the most gorgeous new beauty product around. Puff + Blush ($30) is a heavenly-scented, shimmer powder that lives inside its own light as a feather fluffy boa puff. With names inspired by some of the world’s most famous cocktails, this all-in-one glamour essential is perfect for party girls! Try Brandy Alexander Puff + Blush for a bronze shimmer with a subtle cinnamon scent for that sun-kissed Brazilian babe look, or go for a Cosmopolitan Puff + Blush and bask in a cheeky, flirty pink glow with a divine pink grapefruit scent. Available from David Jones and Myer/Grace Bros nationally.
A healthy glow
New from Nivea is a revitalising moisturiser that delivers a healthy glow all day long. Nivea Visage Pure Energy ($13.95) is a vitamin-rich treat for your skin that will keep it looking good and feeling great the whole day through. Light reflecting particles give skin an instantly refreshed appearance and the built in UV filters help protect your skin from light-induced premature ageing. You’ll love the fresh, light apricot fragrance too! Available from supermarkets, mass merchants and leading pharmacies.
Pump up the volume
Whip your lashes into a frenzy with a new breed lash enhancing mascara. Estee Lauder’s Magnascopic Maximum Volume Mascara ($46.00) gives you extravagant long lashes and superb definition. No nasty clumping thanks to the Speed-Meter brush and the special Triple Reservoir system that promises to combs, separate and coat individual lashes to perfection.
Available in black, brown, purple and blue for $46 from Estee Lauder counters nationally.
Cover up, girl!
If a few too many late-night caprioskas with the girls have left you with telltale dark circles under the eyes, fear not. Banish those pesky shadows with the lightweight, natural looking Fresh Complexion Under Eye Concealer ($10.95) from Cover Girl. Oil-free, hypo-allergenic and dermalogically tested, the Fresh Complexion range is great for sensitive skin. Available from Target, Kmart, Big W, Priceline and selected supermarkets and pharmacies.
Ramp up the vamp and step out to party with Napoleon’s Lash Impact Kit ($32). Give yourself a bit of catwalk glamour in three easy steps with this fun and flirty lash kit. The kit includes Napoleon Quick Intensity Mascara with a unique bendy wand for professional application, a tube of Virtual eyelash adhesive and a pair of uber-luxurious ‘Minelli-lashes’ made from natural hair. Keep your eyes peeled for Napoleon Creme Sorbet Shadows too. Smooth, deliciously creamy and easy to apply with your finger, these soft yet long lasting eye shadows make a welcome addition to your autumn makeup kit. Beeswax in the formulation conditions the eye and makes the colour budge proof!
