Lancôme Ll - Taylor Hill 'make-up Is My Power'

Is the dream of having a perfect complexion unattainable? Since 1997, Teint Idole Ultra 24h has proven that it is actually within our reach.

By raising the stakes over and over, this iconic long- wearing formula was the first to guarantee 14h of hold, then 18h, and finally up to 24h of optimal comfort and an impeccable complexion without any need for touch-ups.

However, these past few years the world of make-up has gone through a major shift. The rules of the new always-selfie-ready generation have deeply transformed makeup routines, especially in regards to foundation.

While women opted for a very classic complexion in the past, nowadays, it has become a tool for self-expression and empowerment for those who use an arsenal of foundation products to create audacious and bold looks.

In celebration of its 20 years – an age when anything is possible – Teint Idole Ultra Wear pursues its quest for perfection, reinventing itself once again! In 2017, a new chapter begins: Teint Idole Ultra 24h becomes Teint Idole Ultra Wear.

With a new bottle, chicer than ever, its high coverage formula now exists in up to 40 shades (15 available in Australia), answering every woman’s need and making it simpler for them to replicate the most sophisticated techniques.

It is easier than ever to recreate radiant and velvety complexion – without discomfort, streaks or caking – and looks that you can customise for each moment of the day, depending on the occasion, from natural to sophisticated.

More than ever, Teint Idole Ultra Wear is a confidence booster. By being a best friend and ally, it allows all women to express each facette of who they are. Thanks to a formula that will never fail them, it encourages any woman to live her life to the fullest.

Long lasting perfection: a secret weapon for women who thrive to enjoy each moment of their lives without compromising.

Wrinkles Schminkles Secures Its Expansion Into the U.S. Market

Wrinkles Schminkles: The Australian beauty company proving beauty is more than skin deep – at any age.

Unique, innovative and effective; Wrinkles Schminkles is a range of non-invasive, age-defying wrinkle treatment products that aim to help women embrace their beauty, at any age.

Formulated from 100 percent Medical Grade Silicone, Wrinkles Schminkles targets the parts of the body that are
the first to act their age. Helping to treat and prevent the formation of wrinkles on the chest, décolletage, eyes, forehead, neck and mouth.

Applied while you sleep (because we all have better things to do during the day),Wrinkles Schminkles works both instantly and over time to help treat and prevent skin creases and wrinkles.

Although a pad that adheres to the skin,Wrinkles Schminkles goes way beyond the popular sheet masks or skin patches available on the market today.

Rather than try to ‘push’ an ingredient topically into the skin, Wrinkles Schminkles generates hydration and stimulates collagen production from the inside out.The adhesive pad also keeps skin taut so it cannot physically crease or wrinkle.

The brainchild of French-Australian Gabrielle Requena, Wrinkles Schminkles embodies the perfect combination of both French and Australian ideals of beauty; the French attitude to ageing gracefully and the Australian attitude to simple but highly effective beauty treatments.

With a French father and having spent half of her upbringing in France browsing through the ‘parfumeries’, Gabrielle has beauty treatments and graceful beauty in her blood.

After completing a Bachelor of Commerce with a Masters in Electronic Commerce, Requena held many senior Digital Marketing positions, notably she launched Ebay Australia’s beauty category where she noticed the Australian woman’s voracious appetite for active and effective beauty solutions.

It was this professional background and one good idea borne from her own desire to treat her own skin, that gave Requena the confidence to launch her own brand.
