It’s Professional Beauty London this weekend, when the whole Warpaint team decamps to London’s ExCeL Centre for the biggest show in the UKs beauty calendar. Over the years we’ve built up the make up side of the show and this year for the first time we are welcoming Inglot Cosmetics. Established over 30 years ago by Wojtek Inglot, a young chemist working at that time in R&D department in a pharmaceutical company. His principal objective was to produce high quality products at fair and reasonable prices, using only the best possible ingredients and raw materials from the most reputable suppliers. Just in time for the show the brand has launched their HD Lip Tint Matte, a new lip product that will provide full coverage and a silky matte finish. The tint gives a long lasting effect, doesn’t smudge and is transfer resistant. A handy little sponge makes the lip tint easy to apply, while intense colours will compliment any makeup or skin tone. Available in 10 colours, ranging from subtle nudes to classic reds and darker statement shades.
Staying on a lip tip, Estée Lauder has announced the launch of its Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss and Lacquer, available from March nationwide (£20). The new collection reimagines gloss with a new fluid lip balm texture in a range of finishing effects. Featuring a range of 20 shades in a shimmer or créme finish, each Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss shade works with the lips’ natural silhouette to optically sculpt and magnify shape and curve for a smooth, multidimensional colour and shine. The comfortable balm texture provides a precise, even application of sheer buildable colour. The Pure Color Envy Sculpting lip collection is further expanded with the addition of the new Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lacquer, available in eight hues that offer a lasting six hour wear. Combining the creamy coverage of a lipstick and the high-shine of a gloss, the product harnesses multi-functional polymers to seal in moisture and form a colour stay barrier to keep colour and shine looking fresh, supple and vibrant.
Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has revealed its Nude Finish Collection, on counters from March. The new Nude Finish Illuminating Powder (£39) is a sheer finishing powder that instantly lifts and brightens the complexion, offering a wash of skin tone-complementing colour and soft pearl effect.
