Prep + Prime Line Filler ($19.50)
Prep + Prime Line Filler is a targeted deep wrinkle filler with long term skincare benefits that uses a unique technological breakthrough. Line Filler plumps and smoothes skin and drastically reduces the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines. A combination of Gatuline Expression™ and Argireline work together to relax the appearance of facial tension and expression lines, as well as boost the skin’s natural collagen production. Line Filler produces immediate results, but will also help eliminate the appearance of expression lines with continued use. The product is designed to be used under or over makeup and can also be used to touch up throughout the day.
Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone ($19.50)
Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone is a partial primer designed for use in the T-Zone. This lightweight, oil-free, soy-based emulsion instantly helps minimize visible pores while helping to control excess surface oil and shine. MAC employs High Tech Optics, an advanced technology powder and light diffusers to fill in lines. The result: an invisible, natural-looking, long-lasting matte finish that also helps keep pores clean, clear and unclogged. It mattifies and hides imperfections using advanced powders and microspheres while a Mannose-Phosphate blend gently exfoliates away dead cells giving the skin a more youthful look and silica particles absorb oil. In addition to immediately minimizing pore appearance and shine, 24% experience an increased luminosity and clarity of the skin. Additionally, clinical tests show that over time, the Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone reduces the appearance of clogged pores and shrinks the appearance of pores to nearly two-thirds of its original size.
Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder ($21.00)
Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder is not your usual translucent powder. With a virtually invisible feather-light, silky colorless application, the powder both reduces shine and maintains radiance due to a finely milled formula of corn starch, silica and micronized mica. Though it was designed to set and stabilize makeup, it can also be worn alone over moisturizer for a natural and radiant complexion. It was also a huge hit backstage during fashion week and was used at nearly every major show including Zac Posen, Badgley Mischka, Stella McCartney, Behnaz Sarafpour, Alberta Ferretti and Giles.
- 129SH All-purpose for blush or face powder. This brush is particularly good for blush application. The fibers are soft and form a full, rounded shape.

YSL Treasures of Africa for Summer 2009
The NEW SUMMER LOOK 2009 is a tribute to a vividly imagined land that invites us to discover the treasures of Africa. The Yves Saint Laurent woman defies the fiery rays of the sun at its zenith. In the season’s visual, her lips are natural and just slightly colored to emphasize the tantalizing power of her monochromatic, deep blue eye shadow. Hovering between darkness and light with radiant, contrasting colors, she proclaims the power of supreme seduction. The sensuality of the sun illuminates her skin with golden hues, while her intense eyes affirm her presence, and her lips are sheathed in fleshy transparency.
Tresor d’Afrique Poudre de Soleil Collector (Collector Sun Powder) ($72.00)
A mysterious wooden case, like a souvenir brought back from an unforgettable trip, this monogrammed compact contains a real treasure, an XXL sun powder. The Cassandra-logo engraved in the middle looks as if it has been written in the smooth sand of an arid shore. The shade and formula of this Collector Sun Powder are identical to those of SUN POWDER N2 – Golden Sun, with an SPF 10 and Ampli Light + pigments. This bestselling shade heightens and illuminates all skin tones with beautiful transparency.
Tresor d’Afrique Palette 5 Couleurs Pour les Yeux (5 Colour Harmony for Eyes) ($62.00)
Purple, indigo and turquoise encounter yellow and ocher to boldly dramatize eyes. Matte or iridescent, these luminous, long-lasting, highly pigmented shadows are easily modulated to dress up the eyelids. Through every metamorphosis you choose, they can be combined in twos or threes, or stand alone for a powerful monochrome effect. This color palette features two foam applicators: a thin one for defining the lash line, and a broader one for shading and blending.
Tresor d’Afrique Palette 5 Couleurs Pour les Lèvres (5 Colour Harmony for Lips) ($62.00)
As multicolored as African jewelry, this alliance of five intense, vibrant colors is designed for precious, radiant, summer-y smiles. The three lip shades – fuchsia, pink and orange – and the two glosses – pink ivory and garnet – are gorgeous on their own or layered for results that are always unique, always flamboyant.
Water-Resistant Eye Shadow ($28.50)
- N1 – Pink Sand – a delicate, flesh pink ideal for natural-looking radiance.
- N2 – Amethyst Grey – an elegant gray with subtle purple highlights.
- N3 – Golden Fern – a soft, khaki green enhanced with gold sparkles.
- N4 – Copper Radiance – a deep, warm brown highlighted with copper sparkles.
Poudre de Soleil Sun Powder in N4 – Iridescent Sun ($48.00)
Rouge Pure Shine Sheer Lipstick in N32 – Frozen Mango, N33 – Wild Blackberry ($30.00)
Everlong Mascara Waterproof in N5 – Ever Peacock Blue ($28.50)
Touche Éclat in N3 – Light Peach ($ 40.00 )
Long-lasting Eye Pencil in N3 – Ocean Blue, N12 – Paradise Blue ($28.00)
