Prescriptives Photochrome Light-Adjusting Compact Makeup SPF 15 ($35.00)

Look great in any light with the return of Prescriptives Photochrome Light-Adjusting Compact Makeup SPF 15. In these high-definition times, light-reflecting photo-friendly particles diffuse glare while softening the look of lines and wrinkles to help you look your best. Available in 12 shades, this lightweight cream-to-powder foundation glides onto skin for medium coverage that is smooth and natural. The oil-free, longwearing formula provides a seamless finish that never looks heavy. Apply with the patented ergonomic sponge that contours the face for a flawless application and you are ready for the spotlight!

I’ve yet to try this product, but I’m definitely intrigued. I say this because only recently I have had some foundation woes about my foundation *not* matching my face in certain lighting (mostly when I spy myself in the flip-down mirror in my boyfriend’s car!). It is designed to make your skinless flawless in high-def TV (think Cargo blu-ray collection). It is a long-wearing, buildable foundation that keeps skin looking natural in all light. It is also supposed to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores (gimme!). It’s also oil-free, fragrance-free, and non-acnegenic according to Prescriptives.

Availability: January 2009 at all Prescriptives counters nationwide, www.prescriptives.com and Holt Renfrew in Canada.

PRESCRIPTIVES TO LAUNCH FLAWLESS FACE PRIMER

Flawless Face Primer gives your skin a smoother, more even texture so makeup looks absolutely flawless and stays on even longer. This weightless formula reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while helping erase the appearance of redness and discoloration. Skin is soothed immediately, looking clear, less lined, super-smooth.

Prescriptives’ new Flawless Face Primer ($27.50) is designed to prolong the wearing time of your foundation while minimizing the appearance of pores and evening out skin tone. It’s an oil-free, non-acnegenic, dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested product (whew! that’s a mouthful). It uses a silicone elastomer emulsion as the technology behind the results, as well as cross polymers (soft-focus effect, reduces the appearance of lines/wrinkles), thea sinesis extract/sucrose calm to reduce redness, and vitamin C/poria cocos to improve skin clarity.

Availability:  January 2009 at all Prescriptives counters nationwide, www.prescriptives.com and Holt Renfrew in Canada.
