As we’re hitting the second half of October, the beauty scene is getting a big buzz with both the coming holiday collections and a number of year-end releases that are already breaking our wallet. Here’s a list of beauty items we love!
DR. DENNIS GROSS: C + Collagen Brighten & Firm Vitamin C Serum
Nothing treats your skin like vitamin C does. Even in the age when the beauty industry is loaded with innovations and technology, the beauty companies never stop innovating on vitamin C — how to best formulate this ingredient with solid proof of anti-aging, skin-brightening and collagen-boosting power. Latest in the line is this bottle from Dr. Dennis Gross, another beauty firm with strength in effective clinical formulation based on active ingredients. This C+ Collagen Brighten & Firm Vitamin C Serum is a fast-absorbing gel-serum packed with 3-O C vitamin C—the most stable form of vitamin C, collagen amino acids, and a proprietary energy complex to create a smooth and luminous complexion.
THB3,725 for 30mL, available at Sephora
Karl Lagerfeld + Model Co
This one isn’t exactly about a product, but more of a whole line of makeup collaboration between the iconic Karl Lagerfeld and the trend-setting Australian makeup line Model Co. Featuring a range of innovative, fun and Instagrammable 50-piece makeup collection from eyeliner, eyeshadow palette, bronzer, highlighter, mascara, lip products as well as accessories, with packaging designed in the signature playful Karl Lagerfeld aesthetics. The theme is “Illuminated Beauty” and it’s echoed through the textures and even the design of the case, palette and tubes.
Available at Karl Lagerfeld + Model Co counter at Karl Lagerfeld store, Siam Paragon and website patluxurygroup.com
Jung Saem Mool: Skin Nuder Foundation
No one does the desirable glass skin like world-famous Korean makeup artist Jung Saem Mool. Her secret? The skincare and makeup collection from her celebrated namesake brand. Latest in the line of its must-have complexion items is Skin Nuder Foundation — a light skin-adjusting foundation that gives an instant glow and a barely-there feel. The finish is dewy, with little coverage, but your skin definitely feels healthy and practically glowing.
Available at Jung Saem Mool counter at Siam Centre and Paragon Department Store.
Shiseido: Revitalizing Treatment Softener
For the beauty veterans, the word “Softener” is synonymous with Shiseido — a liquid-y, translucent lotion you either apply with cotton or press onto your clean skin with bare hands. Either way, the Shiseido softener has become a multi-purpose product that serves as a pre-lotion during colder months, or as a sole skin nourishment for those with oily skin. Over the years, Shiseido has developed various formulas of its softener for various skin concerns. This Revitalizing Treatment Softener, unlike many others, is packed with skin-loving ingredients and technologies to revitalise the dull and aging skin. The VP8+ Technology targets 8 skin concerns, while the latest Textol texture enables this rich formula to feel light and silky enough to wear even before your favourite moisturiser and face oil.
THB3,300 for 150mL, available at Shiseido counters at leading department stores.
Chanel: Rouge Allure Ink Fusion
Chanel follows the launch of its matte liquid lip Rouge Allure Ink in 2016 with the new Rouge Allure Ink Fusion — the first long-lasting ultra-matte liquid lip colour with an indelible allure. The fluid texture is a savvy blend of polymers and gel. It glides smoothly over lips in supple veil. The oil-enriched formula gives a makeup-free sensation while the creamy texture, itself filled with mattifying silica microbeads and a high concentration of ultra-fine pigments, infuses the lips with radiant, deep and intense colour.
Available in 12 shades, THB1,450 at all Chanel counters.
