LAURA MERCIER'S NEW FACE POWDERS

American beauty brand Laura Mercier has released a new highlighter it claims will help users get a subtle glow and radiant look.

The Face Illuminator has a lightweight powder formula which is easy to apply and creates a soft, smooth finish. It provides a transparent wash of colour that the label says will last eight hours.

It contains pure light-reflecting pigments that is said to create a multi-dimensional luminous finish. It is available in three shades: Devotion (cool pink), Indiscretion (warm rose gold) and Addiction (warm bronze).

The Face Illuminator ($73) is available at Laura Mercier counters and Sephora stores.


INNISFREE LAUNCHES 100 COMPACT CASE DESIGNS

South Korean label Innisfree users can now customise their cushion compact foundations.

The brand has launched a collection of 100 cushion case designs that come in a variety of colours and graphic prints (above).

It has also launched two new cushion types: the Long Wear Cover Cushion and Water Fit Cushion.

The former is infused with Jeju volcanic powder, which the label claims helps with sebum control to ensure long-lasting coverage and a soft, matte finish.

The latter is made from 100 per cent organic green tea water from Jeju, which the label claims gives a moisture boost to the skin.

To customise their cushion compacts, customers can select the cushion refill of their choice ($19 each), pick a case ($12) and choose from four applicators: Glow Puff ($3), Fitting Puff ($3), Cover Stamping Puff ($8) and Cushion Brush ($15).

The 100 case designs are available at Innisfree outlets at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, 391 Orchard Road, B2-34; and VivoCity, 1 Harbourfront Walk, B1-02. Other Innisfree stores carry only 40 designs.
