COUP D’ÉCLAT
Ampoules Lifting Beauté Du Teint
 The Coup D’Éclat Ampoules Lifting Beauté Du Teint from Laboratoires ASEPTA, are designed to illuminate the complexion of the face especially before occasions, and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines prior to makeup application. Packaging: These Ampoules come in a silver box on which the essential information such as the desired effect and the method of application have been listed. This product is available in two different models containing either 3 or 12 ampoules. As for the ampoules, they are made up of plastic not glass, so there’s no need to worry about dropping them accidentally. To open them, you will have to gently break the top section and they will easily open at the neckline. Texture: A non-oily and non-greasy liquid formula. Keep an eye out for any leakage of the liquid through your hands when using it. Application: Snap open the head of the ampoule, pour half of it into the palm of your hand, and then wet the fingers of your other hand with the liquid and pat it gently onto your face. You can also apply the liquid around your eye area in case you’re suffering from any traces of fatigue or wrinkles. Spread the remaining part of the liquid on the areas you find in need of more radiance and less traces of fatigue and wrinkles. In case you’re not applying the ampoule for a special occasion or if you don’t suffer from signs of aging on your face, we advise you to preserve the remaining part of the vial for the following use. You can do that by placing the head in the opposite direction to prevent any leakage, and then preserving it in an air-conditioned place away from the heat. Scent: These ampoules have a faint and pleasant fragrance. Effect: We tested these ampoules on young skin (26 years old) and on skin that suffers from wrinkles and fine lines (50 years old). What we noticed in terms of the young skin was that you needed around 10 minutes after applying the ampoule for the skin to absorb the serum in order to notice the difference; your skin will soon look radiant. The results will appear even better if you wait for around 15 minutes, you can then apply makeup without going overboard with foundation to hide imperfections or highlighter to illuminate your face. When we applied makeup after the ampoule, we noticed that it sat in place for a longer period of time. At first, the makeup used to last for around 4 hours before starting to fade. However, applying it along with the ampoule held it down in place for 7 consecutive hours, knowing that we applied it for a night out while being exposed to hot weather and high humidity. In terms of the skin older in age, keep in mind that you won’t achieve complete face lifting as the product name indicates, nor will the wrinkles instantly vanish. However, you will notice that the appearance of aging signs will diminish after a while of applying the ampoule when the serum spreads out through your skin. That will allow you to distribute your foundation easily, and your makeup will look less flaky and clumped up at the fine lines as it usually happens. Hence, you can count on these ampoules to prep your face for makeup application, especially before occasions as it will look brighter and fresh. We would like to point out that whichever type of skin you have, whether young or old, the effect of these ampoules will wear out after 8 hours of application. It is important to keep that in mind since you will begin to notice the radiance fading and the signs of aging reappearing as intensely as they were prior to application. Price: The Coup D’Éclat Ampoules Lifting Beauté Du Teint box that contains 3 ampoules of 1 ml capacity retails at 16 USD in Lebanon, while that which contains 12 ampoules retails at 39.6 USD. If you buy the bigger box, you will notice that the price of one ampoule is fairly lower. In case you’re looking for different ampoules with similar results, the Martiderm Flash Ampoules Instant Radiance Effect retails at 18 USD for a box containing 5 ampoules of a 2 ml capacity, which is twice the size of Coup D’Éclat Ampoules.

<a href="/brand/dior/"><strong>DIOR</strong> </a><br /> DiorSkin Nude Air Powder Image
DIOR
DiorSkin Nude Air Powder
Packaging: This compact powder comes in a circular silver case with a glossy cover, that has “DIOR” engraved on it. When opening the box, we see that “NUDE AIR” is inscribed into the powder to indicate the name of the product. The box is equipped with a mirror and a long-brimmed brush that facilitate the use and application of the powder. Available Colors: 3 color tones are available for this powder: -Light Beige -Medium Beige -Honey Beige Scent: This powder has no scent Effect: This powder has a matte finishing formula. When applied, the powder doesn’t settle into the fine lines of the face, and doesn’t clamp in some areas contrarily to many powders found in the market.For oily types of skin, this powder can hide the undesired shiny layer that the skin tends to have. It has also a great fixating effect. After using it several times, we noted that it has a long-lasting effect and can be carried in your purse for retouch after a while, or to add some powder for a stronger night look and restore the glow effect on the skin.However, we do not advise you to use this powder as a basis for your makeup, as it is very light and does not cover all the imperfections of the skin. It is better to keep using a cream as a base to your face, and to use this powder as a final step after laying the foundation. Application: After applying the base cream on your face, place some powder on an adequate brush and apply it on your face for a soft and natural look.If you are looking to have a bold and long lasting makeup, increase the amount of powder placed on the skin. Moreover, if you have a mixed or oily type of skin, increase the amount of powder placed on the nose and forehead areas (T-Zone area). Price: 56$ on the official website of Dior with a capacity of 10 grams.  After comparing it to other luxury powders, we found that it has a high price while providing a relatively small quantity of powder. Indeed, for the same price, other luxury brands provide about 30 grams of powders.We also found that other luxury brands price the same quantity for a lower price of 45$.

<a href="/brand/fenty-beauty/"><strong>FENTY BEAUTY</a> </strong> <br />Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick Image
FENTY BEAUTY
Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick
 Packaging: The stick has a hexagonal shape. It is magnetic, therefore it can be attached to other skinsticks from the same edition, or to its special highlighter brush which is sold separately. Its cover has a sponge on the inner part of it to protect the product when closing the box. Available Colors: There are 10 different sticks in this edition, and they range from very light shades, to skin-color shades, and then stronger shades like red, orange, and purple. These different colors can be mixed and matched in the same makeup look according to your preference. We tried the Unicorn skinstick that has a shimmery purple color, and the Yacht Lyfe skinstick that has a soft pink color. Effect: When we applied a single coat of this skinstick on the skin, we noticed that its effect is soft and subtle, and that it was possible to control the amount of shimmer to get the exact desired look. For a stronger effect, more than one coat can be applied, while making sure to let the previous coat to dry well. Once applied, the product stays on for 8 hours on the skin before the need to reapply. This Fenty Beauty Shimmer Skinstick is of multi use, it can be used as a highlighter, as a blush, and even as an eyeshadow. Its texture is creamy, and that’s what makes it easy to use and blend. However, when used over the foundation, it can sweep it off a little, especially when using the stick directly on the skin and not with a brush. We’d also like to draw your attention to the fact that the product dries out if its stays uncovered for a long time. How to use: The best way to use this product is with a highlighter brush. You can also use your finger while making sure not to press it hard against the skin, or else the makeup under will get ruined. We also do not advise to use the product directly on the skin without a brush since it is creamy, therefore the makeup can damage the skinstick. Price: $25 on the official website of Fenty Beauty, with a capacity of (7 g), which is a good price, because it is a versatile product that can be used as a blush, highlighter, and eyeshadow. In addition to that, there are no similar products available on the market.

FENTY BEAUTY
Invisimatte Blotting Powder
Packaging: This powder comes in an ivory colored box with a bit of purple shimmer, the box has a triangular edge designed especially to attach magnetically its separately-sold brush. Its size is suitable for a handbag, it has a mirror and a blending sponge inside for an easy application. Effect: This powder is sheer, and therefore is not visible on the face nor does it settle within the fine lines. After trying it for a couple of times, we noticed that it increases the longevity of the foundation. Also, it reduces the shininess of the skin and helps control the visibility of the oily skin detachments. It gives a matte finish and therefore helps keep a fresh makeup look. But what we noticed is that this powder doesn’t last more than two hours on oily skins, although it’s designed for it. As for the normal skins, it lasts for 5 hours, and for dry ones, it lasts for around 7 hours. The marketed effect of this powder is that it minimizes the pores, but we did not notice that. Therefore, it might be better not to rely on this powder on its own to get that effect. How to use: Apply this powder as a last step in your makeup routine, especially on the T-zone which is the most oily area of the skin, and re-apply when needed. Price: $32 on the official website of Fenty Beauty, with a capacity of (8.5 g). This product fits into the middle range of powder prices; It is lower than the price of high-end brands powders which are usually priced between 40 to 50 dollars for the same capacity, and higher than other powders by other brands.

FENTY BEAUTY
Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer
Packaging: This primer has a simple packaging, it comes in a glass tube with a pump. Its cover closes securely which prevents any leakage. The tube is relatively big, and may not fit in your makeup bag nor in your purse, but this shouldn't be a problem as it is not possible to retouch the primer throughout the day anyway. Texture: This primer’s texture is a mix between gel and cream, which makes it easily applicable and blend-able. Effect: After applying the primer, we noticed that it unifies the skin tone, and hides the pores and the fine lines on the face as well. It also smoothens the skin and therefore allows the foundation to be easily applied. We tried applying makeup with and without the primer, and noticed that using it increases the longevity of the foundation and the makeup products in general on the face. This primer can be used on all skin types. If you have an oily skin type, this primer will absorb the oil of your skin and give a matte effect. The makeup will therefore look fresh. However if you have a dry skin, it might be better to apply it every other day as it might increase the dryness of the skin. How to use: Apply small amounts of the primer on the different areas of the face, then blend it using your fingers. If you have a dry skin, you can only apply the primer on the areas that tend to be oily like the T-zone and around the mouth. Price: $32 on the official website of Fenty Beauty, and its capacity is (32 ml). In comparison to other primers, its price and capacity are similar to those of luxurious brands like YSL, Laura Mercier. and Lancome.. etc. But bear in mind that there are other primers that also hide the blemishes and unite the skin tone, at a lower price and with the same capacity.

FENTY BEAUTY
Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
Packaging: This Fenty Beauty foundation comes in a simple packaging which is a glass tube with a pump to control the amount of product. The cover closes securely so you wouldn’t have to worry when putting it in the makeup bag. Available Colors: The most important thing about this foundation is that it’s available in 40 different shades, the purpose of it being to suit all skin tones. Therefore every woman can find the perfect color to apply on her skin, be it light or dark. This has increased the sales of this foundation worldwide. The tried color is Number 230, which is a bit dark and gives a bronze look, suitable for brunettes more than women with a light skin. Smell: This foundation has a nice smell which is a mix of pineapple and papaya extracts. Effect: When we tried it, we noticed that it completely covers all blemishes of the skin without creating a thick layer of foundation on the face. The Finish of this foundation is matte, therefore it is suitable for oily skin because it absorbs the grease. But if you have a dry skin, be careful as it might increase your skin’s dryness. Therefore, it might be better to hydrate your skin before applying it. We’d also like to draw your attention to the fact that this foundation doesn’t clog pores because of its oil-free composition. Application: This foundation is liquid and light, therefore it is easily applied in two ways: For a full coverage, use the foundation brush, and for a natural soft look, use the blending sponge. But be careful that it dries fast on the skin, so make sure to apply and blend the product rapidly. Price: 34$ on the official website of Fenty Beauty, its capacity is (23 ml). Its price is less than the price of most of the foundations present on the market that have a good effect and create a full coverage of the face with the same (ml) capacity, but cost between 40 and 60 US Dollars. Therefore you can find the right shade for your skin among this wide range of colors at a reasonable price.

FENTY BEAUTY
Killawat Free Style Highlighter
Packaging: This highlighter comes in an ivory colored box with a bit of purple shimmer. It has an octagon shape, it’s light in weight, even though it has a mirror inside, which makes it practical to take with you wherever you go. However, it doesn’t have a blending brush. Available Colors: There are 10 different shades of this highlighter. Two of these shades have their own box which are “Metal Moon” a white color with gold undertones, and “Trophy Wife” which is a gold metallic shade. As for the 8 other colors, they are divided into 4 boxes, each box contains two shades. These colors range from champagne, copper, light pink, and pearly. We noticed that the two shades of the same box are of the same color group but have different tones: One is stronger and more shimmery, the other is lighter and more subtle, so they can be used for daytime and for night time as well. We tried a shade that comes individually in its own box, which is Trophy Wife (White with gold undertones) that gives a strong touch of shimmer when applied, especially on a dark skin. We also tried two colors that come in the same box which are Mean Money (champagne color) and Hu$tla Baby (Champagne color, but darker and with more shimmer). Effect: The texture of these highlighters is light and thin because it is a mixture of cream and powder, therefore it’s easy to apply. We noticed that there’s no need to apply it more than once to get the desired result. But you have to choose a suitable shade of color for you, because there are very light colors that you might not prefer if you are into a strong effect. As for its shimmer effect, it’s a soft one, especially for the light colors that are meant for daytime, so it can be applied without worrying about your skin being too bright in an exaggerated way. After trying these highlighters for a couple of times, we noticed that the color stays put for 5 to 6 hours before having to reapply. How to use: Pick the color that suits your skin tone, apply it on the cheeks, the area under the brows, the middle vertical line of the nose, and the collarbones, using your finger or using a highlighter brush. If you want to shift between a day makeup and a night one, you can apply the highlighter with the darker tone above the lighter one that you already applied as they will blend together. Price: 34$ on the official website of Fenty Beauty, its capacity is (3.5 gram) which is in the same range of other highlighters from other brands like Lancome, Kat Von D, Urban Decay with prices between 30 and 50 dollars that provide two shades with the same capacity. However, bear in mind that if you are searching for a specific shade, you can find it in single-shade highlighters for a lower price range of 15 to 20 dollars.

<a href="/brand/giorgio-armani/"><strong>GIORGIO ARMANI</strong> </a><br /> Luminous Silk Foundation Image
GIORGIO ARMANI
Luminous Silk Foundation
 Packaging: This foundation comes in a simple glass bottle with a pump and a black cap with the Giorgio Armani logo in silver. The cover closes well and prevents leakage of the product. Available Colors: The foundation is available in a wide range of colors, specifically in 24 shades for light to medium tones. However the shade system identifiable by numbers is sometimes confusing; while foundations are generally identified by 3 tones: warm, cool and neutral, the Luminous Silk foundation has a numbering system that depends on the colour of your skin (fair, light, medium, tan, deep) and on its undertones (neutral, warm, golden, peachy, rosy, golden and red). A higher number is thus not necessarily a darker shade than a smaller number. For this reason, we recommend that you first test a sample of this foundation and identify the color that best suits your skin, before buying it online. Scent: The foundation is lightly scented. Texture: The Luminous Silk has a fluid, watery texture. We found it was easy to apply with a brush or a beauty blender. Effect: It is typically a lightweight foundation with light to medium coverage. It blends nicely onto the skin and gives a natural look with a dewy finish. We would recommend this foundation for the ones of you who like the “no makeup makeup” but enjoy the look of a glowy skin. This is one of the reasons why it is very much used in photoshoots. It has buildable coverage to blur imperfections and the resulting effect does not look cakey. However we noticed when using it on combination to oily skin that it tends to make the T-zone shiny during the day and will only effectively last for a couple of hours. We felt the need to set it with a powder to extend its wear-time or to use a mattifying primer on the oily zones before applying it. We would recommend using this foundation for dry or normal skins who would benefit from its hydrating effect and for a skin with few imperfections as the coverage is relatively light, closer to a tinted moisturizer. Price: The foundation comes in a 30ml bottle and retails at 64 USD (official price). Although a little of product goes a long way (you only need one pump of product to use on the whole face), this makes it one of the most expensive foundations on the market. For an invisible “no makeup” effect you can find alternatives between 20 USD and 45 USD; for a longer lasting effect, brands such as Lancôme, Estee Lauder, Makeup Forever and MAC have options in the range of 35 USD to 47 USD.

<a href="/brand/guerlain/"><strong>GUERLAIN</strong></a><br/>Gold Light Terracota Bronzing Powder Image
GUERLAIN
Gold Light Terracota Bronzing Powder
Packaging: This powder comes in a golden box with a cover decorated with drawings and with the logo of Guerlain. It doesn’t have an application brush, so you’d have to buy a separate one. It has a mirror on the inside of the cover, but the cover gets separated from the box when opened, so it makes it hard to use the mirror during the application. Available Colors: This powder comes from a limited edition, in a unique color. If you are looking for a different shade, you can find it in Guerlain’s “Terracota” edition that has a lot of bronzer colors to choose from. Smell: This powder has a strong smell which is a mix of orange, vanilla, and musk. Effect: The color of this powder is light, and when applied, we noticed that its effect is very subtle. So you might need to apply more than one layer to get the desired result. We also noticed that it doesn’t cause the skin to dry because of its smooth composition, which is usually a problem faced in other bronzers. Moreover, it has a smooth texture that doesn’t create a fake thick effect when applied. This powder lightens up the face and adds shine to it, but its effect is limited, and will not create the bold tanning look that you might want. Price: $60 on the official website of Guerlain, with a capacity of 10 gram, this price is similar to what other luxury brands offer with the same capacity like Dior, Tom Ford, and Givenchy. But you can find other bronzers with a lower price and the same capacity and a good effect like Tarte and Lancome.

<a href="/brand/kiko-milano/"><strong>KIKO MILANO</strong> </a><br />  Prime & Fix Refreshing Mist Image
KIKO MILANO
Prime & Fix Refreshing Mist
Packaging: The KIKO Prime & Fix Refreshing Mist is packaged in a typical KIKO nice shiny black cardboard box. On the box you can find a lot of information about the product, such as the ingredients and how to use the product. When you remove the container from the box, you’ll see a nice-looking bottle, with a steel-like silver cap, and a pearly white bottom made of a hard plastic. Texture: This water-based spray with makeup fixing action and refreshing primer effect has a very light water-mist texture that will dry off in only a few moments. Effect: According to the brand, this refreshing mist was inspired by Korean beauty trends. It is marketed as a multi-purpose and multi-benefit product. The claim is that on the one hand it fixes and prolongs the hold of the makeup, which is true, even more so for “melting” your powder products into your skin! We recommend however, to wait until your makeup is dry and your routine is done, before spraying your face with the mist, to make sure the water doesn’t cause any runs or smudges when interacting with the makeup, especially with eye makeup. The other claim by the brand is that on the other hand, when applied before makeup, it acts as a face-refreshing primer or base, which we also agree with. Although we don’t recommend a year-long use of it as a primer, we absolutely see its benefit as a refreshing primer in the summer, as the texture and feel really do create a nice fresh misty sensation for the hot days! Application: Shake the spray well before applying. Hold the spray about 20cm from your face and spray in an X shape, making sure your eyes and mouth are closed. Smell: The KIKO Prime & Fix Refreshing Mist has quite a nice light smell. The smell is quite faint, so there’s no risk its smell will interact with your face cream’s or your perfume or scented shampoo. Price: This mist is sold at 19$ in Lebanon for a 70ml volume. Compared to similar products from same range KIKO competitors such as Urban Decay’s All Nighter spray priced at 32$ for 118ml or, Sephora’s Beauty Amplifier Spray, priced at 18$ for 80ml,the price is fair and matches well with the others, give or take a few dollars. The shelf-life of the product once open is 12 month, which is the standard.

<a href="/brand/kiko-milano/"><strong>KIKO MILANO</strong> </a><br />  Smart Essential Face Palette Image
KIKO MILANO
Smart Essential Face Palette
Packaging: The “Smart Essential Face Palette” by Kiko Milano is a sleek black rectangular box. It is convenient because of its medium size and can slide into a purse or a bag easily. While it contains a mirror, the palette does not carry an applicator with it. Available Colors: There are 6 different powders in the “Smart Essential Face Palette” by Kiko. To be more precise, there are 3 blushes, 2 bronzers, and 1 highlighter. There are 3 different palettes in this Kiko “Smart Essential Face Palette”. “The Smart” palettes gradate in intensity of color from light (“Smart- 01”) to deeper tones of the blushes, bronzers, and highlighter (“Smart- 03”). Tested Palette: We tested the “Smart- 02” palette which is medium to dark. It has a gradation of pink blushes: from light coral, to a richer pink, and a deep almost earthier maroon. The 2 bronzers gradate from camel to a dirtier brown. The highlighter is a soft gold. While the blushes and bronzers are matte, the highlighter has a metallic shimmery finish. Effect: This palette is convenient because the blushes can be interchanged from day to night. For example, during the day, for a more natural look, we used to light coral blush. Using the same palette, we opted for the richer pink and the highlighter for a better-defined night look. The texture of the shades is powdery. However, they are easily applied and don’t need a primer. The “Smart- 02” palette is too pigmented for a “medium to dark” palette. For example, the deeper earthier maroon blush was too much for fair and medium skin tones. Bu the highlighter was the right amount of pearly gold. The bronzers were also very convenient, the camel can be applied in the winter and the deeper brown in the summer, to accentuate a tan. After trying this palette, we noticed that the blushes, bronzers, and highlighter have a long tenure. On average they lasted for 4 to 5 hours without needing to be retouched. Application: For a subtle fresh look, applying the camel bronzer or the light coral blush is recommended. For a more defined look, consider applying the maroon bronzer or the deeper pink blush. However, if you have fair toned skin, defining your eyes with some eyeshadow and liner is recommended to accompany the medium tones of the blush and bronzer. The highlighter can come in handy during the day or night. As for the darkest blush tone, it is a very daring look that we thought was too much for lighter skinned women, Price: $32.4 in Lebannon. Net weight is 0.56oz/16g, which is fair compared to its size and the number of face shades in the palette. However, we would have liked for a two-sided applicator brush to be included in the palette. The palette is fair compared to Maybelline’s “Facestudio Master Contour Face Countouring Kit” which sells officially at $12.5 for 0.17oz. The Maybelline palette is almost the third of the Kiko palette size. However, the Maybelline palette includes a brush for application.

Teint Idole 24H Foundation
Packaging: This foundation comes in a transparent glass bottle displaying the brand name and some of the characteristics of the product. The bottle has a pump that enables the distribution of the right amount of fluid. The black cap closes firmly and prevents leakage of the foundation especially if placed inside a makeup pouch. Available Colors: The foundation is available in 40 shades, from the very light tones that are adapted to fair complexions to the darker tones for the tanned skin. It is always important to test several colours on your skin before buying to make sure that it blends with your carnation. Tested Colors: - Beige Diaphane, a light colored shade that works for fair skin - Beige Nature, a medium colored shade Scent: The foundation has a strong perfume; if you tend to dislike strong scents in makeup we recommend that you test it ahead. Effect: The claim on the bottle is that the Teint Idole lasts for up to 24 hours, which we found excessive. When we tried it, we noticed that the foundation works well to cover imperfections of an oily skin however it was not long lasting and required the use of blotting papers throughout the day. We noticed the same effect for combination skin, as it was not able to keep the  T-zone matte for a long period; and we had to re-apply another layer of the product on the zone. For a longer lasting effect, it is best to use it on dry skins; although it has a mattifying effect we did not notice any dry patches following its application. However we noticed when using it on combination to oily skin that it tends to make the T-zone shiny during the day and will only effectively last for a couple of hours. We felt the need to set it with a powder to extend its wear-time or to use a mattifying primer on the oily zones before applying it. If you have acne-prone or sensitive skin, it is always best to apply the foundation on your skin in thin layers during a certain period. In case there is no evidence of rashes or worsening of the acne this would mean that the foundation is suitable for your skin type. Application: Shake well the bottle before using then press the pump to apply a small amount on the back of your hand. Use the foundation brush to spread the product on the face and make sure to begin with thin layers. You can further increase the coverage progressively to prevent the foundation from settling into fine lines. Price: The foundation comes in a 30ml bottle and retails at 47 USD (official price on Lancome website). The price is comparable to that of other foundations of same container size from brands such as Shiseido, Yves Saint Laurent and Kat Von D. However if you’re looking for a less expensive alternative, you can find a wide range of products between 20 USD and 30 USD from brands such as Clinique, Vichy and La Roche-Posay.
