If you can’t remember how long you’ve had those lipsticks and mascaras in your makeup bag, chances are their time is up. After all, they don’t call it "spring cleaning" for nothing, so make room in your cosmetics bag for the latest beauty products to hit Hong Kong‘s shelves in spring 2012.
1. Benefit Hervana Blush
Benefit‘s latest boxed blush aims to lift our looks up to cloud nine. The cheekily named and divine Hervana features a gorgeous swirl of four shades — lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose and berry delight — that are easy to blend together and create a flawless finish.
Swirl and buff your way to perfectly blushed cheeks with Benefit’s Hervana.
Tip: "Add an extra pop on the apple of cheek with your favourite colour from the Hervana pinwheel!" says Maggie Ford Danielson, global beauty authority from Benefit.
Hervana is priced at HK$290 and available at all Benefit counters in Hong Kong.
2. La Prairie Cellular Power Charge Night
Fight the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines with La Prairie‘s brand new Cellular Power Charge Night serum. The sleek, silvery pump bottle has two separate chambers with microencapsulated Retinol cream and an oxygen power gel to stimulate natural cell turnover, increase collagen and elastin production and minimise pores and age spots overnight.
La Prairie’s Cellular Power Charge Night visibly reduces the signs of aging while you sleep.
Tip: "Pump once or twice to dispense both the cream and gel, in equal amounts, to the back of the hand, and mix together with fingertips before applying to the face and neck," says the training manager of La Prairie.
La Prairie Cellular Power Charge Night is priced at HK$4,000 (40 millilitres/1.35 fluid ounces) and available from February 2012 at their Hong Kong stores.
3. Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes Mascara
This spring, be prepared to bat those lashes like never before with Lancôme‘s most flirtatious lash look ever — the Hypnôse Doll Lashes mascara. The secret is in the new, cone-shaped brush that defines hard-to-reach corners and lower lashes, while sculpting, curling and loading each lash with their exclusive FiberShine formula.
Bat those lashes with Lancome’s Doll Eyes mascara.
Tip: "Use liquid liner to draw three fake lashes at the wing of your eye to make your eyes look bigger before applying the Doll Lashes mascara," says Michelle Phan, video makeup artist for Lancome.
The Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes mascara is priced at HK$230 and available at Lancome beauty counters in Hong Kong.
