Lancôme launches Belle de Teint & Flash Bronzer Night-Sun
Lancôme has announced the launch of two new products, hitting counters this month. Belle de Teint (£35) is a new blurring powder to achieve natural glow and healthy skin. The product acts to recreate the natural radiance of healthy, luminous skin, while perfecting skin’s surface texture and enhancing the complexion’s colour. Combining a formula infused with ingredients renowned for their beneficial properties with a texture designed to create a blurring, sheer make-up result, Belle de Teint is tailored to suit each skin shade. Shades 01 to 03 are designed for fairer complexions and contain no pearl pigments, while shades 04 to 06 are created for more tanned complexions and are subtly iridescent. also new is the Flash Bronzer Night-Sun (£24) the first self-tanner to work overnight from the brand, and provides a glowing and natural tan for the face. From the first application the skin boasts glowing, even colour, with intensity building each day. The product offers all the comfort of a normal cream, with an ideal balance of active ingredients to offer a formula that hydrates and plumps the skin. Key ingredients include Vitamin E and Monoi, Rosehip and Argan oils.
New additions to Lipstick Queen’s roster
Lipstick lovers rejoice – Lipstick Queen has announced the launch of two new products this summer. Belle Époque is a range of three hydrating and tinted balms (£18) that provide the lips with nourishment and comfort, while adding a hint of colour. Non-sticky and instantly soothing, the balms are fortified with an algae extract rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, as well as shea butter and vitamin E. Shades include Belle Nude, Belle Pink and Belle Wine. Due to the success of the brand’s Hello Sailor lipstick in May 2014, Lipstick Queen will be introducing its Hello Sailor Lip Gloss (£22) – a sheer, shimmering and lip-plumping gloss in the same long-lasting navy sapphire shade. Enriched with vitamin E and natural oils, the gloss keeps lips smooth, soft and hydrated without being sticky or gloopy. Its texture is more akin to that of a serum, with meadow seed oil, shea butter, omega 3,6 and 9, and vitamin E. The blue colour morphs on the lips into a pinky-mauve, while the blue pearl shimmer makes teeth and the whites of the eyes appear whiter and brighter.
