A product-heavy post is back by popular demand, Primpers. So, let’s take a look at what’s going on the land of beauty this week…
Here’s the video…
And here are Cliff’s Notes (he likes jotting things down)…
1. Redken is launching a fun new matte hair powder called Style Connection Powder Grip 03, $20.95 that gives heaps of volume to chicks like me with fine hair. A little goes a long way, but when you rub it into your roots, it’s instant vavavoooom!
2. Our clever friends have Almay have come up with a primer that comes out like a Twisted Frozen Yoghurt (a spiral of green and purple) but when blended, dissolves into this magical clear product that glides on your skin and keeps your makeup in place for longer. The point of the green and purple is to simultaneously neutralise redness while adding luminosity. AMAZING! It’s called Shade Smart Perfect & Correct Primer, $25.95.
3. Next on the list I take you backstage at one of this week’s best beauty launches. Clinique invited a select group of beauty ed’s to the launch of 8 new shades of Chubby Stick (on counter August so more on them later). This is what it looked like…
2. Back on the hunt for new products I discover Revlon’s ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel, $16.95, that lasts up to 11 days when paired with a base and top coat. For girls like me with super soft, chippy nails, this stuff is the bomb. My favourite shade is Marmalade.
1. And finally, we have a celeb look of the week. It’s Lady Gaga and her blorange hair. Do you rate it or hate it? I could never full this off, but I enjoy her envelope-pushing beauty looks. Pastels and multi-coloured hair is a massive thing this season, so if you want to incorporate parts of this look into your ends, ask for a few soft orange streaks through the mid-lengths and ends.
Tell me Primpers…
