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.

Like a Bollywood film, Nicolas Degennes creates an extravaganza of colour to make everyday life a dream. “I saw India as a bombardment of colours bursting forth to the rhythm of filmi music. I had already been a fan of this infectious, upbeat music for a long time, but of course it was the imagery that really grabbed me — Bollywood and its palettes of colours burst with beams of light. Melodramatic love stories… But love stories all the same, with all the emotion, the ardour, the passion of hearts that are torn apart and the struggle through hardship… The stuff of life! And the women! So beautiful, vivacious, dazzling… … and yet so sweetly demure. A homage to Indian beauty, heightened with a discreet air of eroticism and anchored in the purest tradition. What I adore in these love sagas is the eternal femininity in a showcase of flashy, ultra-kitsch glamour and gaudy music.
