There’s a reason why women always want to look beautiful. To look fresh and younger, we embellish ourselves with cosmetics. Our editors have selected five beauty products — each a leader in its own right.
Nars Dual Intensity Blush
NARS has introduced six modern shade pairings coordinated to wear alone or to be paired together for a range of dynamic effects and versatility. Each Dual-Intensity Blush comes in a compact with two different colours: two blush colours in one, or one blush and one lighter shade meant to use as a highlighter. Purely pigmented colour creates seamless customizable coverage. This product is available online.
This formula was clinically developed by the dermatological chemists of GLAMGLOW® to fight all common skin concerns. It helps with the brightening and evening of the complexion, creates a more youthful and smooth skin tone, improves elastin and collagen, de-clogs and minimises pore size and fights unwanted breakouts by reducing redness and super-speeding the healing process. Available online at www.sephora.com and www.glamglowmud.com
