La Mer:  The Radiant Concealer SPF 25

The Max Huber Research Labs designed La Mer’s gemstone-infused Skincolor Collection to help capture light and transfer its energy to the skin, continuously enhancing the benefits of La Mer skincare. Providing a translucent color palette, La Mer Skincolor allows the skin to be washed with light to invisibly and completely smooth away imperfections, revealing a naturally radiant finish. Today, the Max Huber Research Labs unveils the next generation of Skincolor: The Radiant Concealer SPF 25.

This lightweight cream-to-powder concealer was formulated to instantly camouflage and ease imperfections. Tourmaline and malachite gemstones capture light energy to instantly conceal dark circles and blemishes. The Radiant Concealer SPF 25 optically erases imperfections to create a smooth even finish, while complementing the benefits of The Eye Balm and The Eye Concentrate.

Precious marine and plant extracts help reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles, puffiness, and pores. Meanwhile, with use, visible redness and discoloration are diminished as a soothing chamomile extract and an Asian mushroom called Viapure Poria continuously calms and soothes the skin.

A unique polymer mesh technology delivers buildable, diaphanous layers to create a crease-resistant flexible/breathable application. Skin stays naturally flawless all day. Helps protect skin with SPF 25.

The Radiant Concealer SPF 25 is available in three scientifically engineered translucent full coverage, skin-perfecting, radiance-enhancing hues: Ivory, Beige, and Natural Warm.

Availablility Select Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and lamer.com.  The Radiant Concealer SPF 25 will retail for $65.

Bobbi Brown Goes Green for Fall, Take 2

Bobbi Brown Forest Shimmer Ink Gel Eyeliner ($21.00) is a new shade as part of Bobbi Brown’s Ivy League Collection.  Forest Shimmer Ink is a deep, olive-brown green with soft golden-olive shimmer.  It’s a very dark green-brown, and it is not lat all forest green to me (which is a bit brighter, more fervently green).  The addition of brown to the green makes it incredibly wearable, even to the office.  It has good pigmentation, goes on smooth and creamy, and then dries down and lasts me all day (on the lower lash line–not the waterline).

  • Product: 8/10
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 8/10
  • Packaging: 7/10

Recommendation:  For gel liner fans, this is an excellent shade to add to your stash.  It goes well with other greens, but it works with golds and browns, too, making it a versatile shade.  It even works well as a base — particularly under greens to give them a little more oomph!

Availability: Nordstrom, BobbiBrownCosmetics.com

Fusion Beauty: Infatuation Lip Fusion

This September, Fusion Beauty will be adding to their Lip Fusion line with Infatuation Liquid Shine Multi-Action Lip Fattener. It will be priced at $29 and released in six shades.

“What we really wanted to do with Infatuation is bring a lip product that, unlike LipFusion, plumps lips for the long haul,” said Tammy Yaiser, director of product development for Fusion Beauty. “We found the technology and what it does is that it helps your body increase fatty acid promotion and storage. It takes about 28 days.” — WWD
