Beauty Roundup: NARS, Murad, China Glaze

Beauty Roundup: NARS, Murad, China Glaze

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 by Wendy Lam

I’m always up to trying new beauty products, here are some from NARS, Murad and China Glaze that I’m interested in. First up is the NARS Spring 2013 Gifting: ‘The Happening’ Eye & Cheek Palette ($65) brings together four pre-existing eye colors and two classic cheek shades; and the ‘And God Created the Woman’ Eye Kit ($59) features six extremely wearable shadows accompanied by a travel sized Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base and No. 3 Eye Shader Brush. There’s also the new addition to NARS’ 413 BLKR collection, a burgundy-colored Multiple. This multi-purpose stick ($39) features a creamy formula with sheer color, perfect for contouring. It will be available at both the 413 Bleecker and 8412 Melrose flagship boutiques on February 1st.


Rapid Collagen Infusion is a youth building formula that infuses the skin with a unique botanical complex that encourages the skin’s own collagen production while helping maintain healthy hydration levels to plump skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles, providing not only long term benefits, but also the instant gratification of an immediate plumping effect – it is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just 2 hours!

Rapid Collagen Infusion also features Murad’s newest technology, RepleniCell®, a hydration technology that utilizes a proprietary blend of complex ingredients to pre-treat the water phase of most Murad formulations that helps skin with attracting water, binding water within the skin’s surface and strengthening skin’s barrier to help it retain water.

How it works:
· Collagen Support Complex boosts skin’s resilience and plumps dehydrated skin to reduce wrinkle depth appearance
· Winged Kelp smoothes skin by fostering natural collagen and elastin
· Cellular Hydro-Lock® with Apple and Lentil Seed Extracts plumps skin and helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles
