Deal Of The Day: 25% Off Customized Cosmetics From Prescriptives
March 18, 2008
Everyone loves customized beauty loot, and tailored-to-you powders and foundations are what made a name for ultra-personalized beauty brand Prescriptives. But if you can't make the trek to the makeup counter to get magically colorprinted, you're not totally out of luck. There are plenty of high quality bestsellers formulated to look great on any skin tone, or engineered to solve problems we all have.
Liquid lacquer Shine Envy ($14, was $18.50) combines all the best properties of a lip gloss and a lipstick. Get the opaque coverage control you love in your favorite lipstick and the super shine of a great gloss. The high pigmentation ensures you get a jolt of non-sticky color, but the four skin tone-specific shades—Barely, Champagne, Blushing, and Nuance—won't overwhelm you.
It's hard to believe all beauty hype, but the marketing masterminds who named Instant Gratification Skin Renewal Peel ($34, was $45) spoke the truth. The granulated all-in-one peel heats up with a little water, so you can actually feel the tingly regeneration in action. Wake up tired, dull skin with a quick DIY version of the dermabrasion-peel treatments you'd pay top dollar for at a spa.
Artists are masters of capturing light and making it work to their all-enhancing advantage, but unfortunately, most heavy foundations offer no room for such artistic license. No so with *magic Liquid PowderTranslucent ($27, was $35). The translucent, misty liquid powder works on all skin tones, diffusing light to make pores and blemishes virtually disappear. With *magic in your beauty arsenal, you're finally able to win that daily battle you wage against the unflattering fluorescent overhead lights in your office.
