Beauty Roundup: Skin Regimen, MAC, ODLR, Murad, In The Mood, Orly, OPI

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 by Wendy Lam

I just recently learned about a new skincare brand, Skin Regimen, from leading Italian skincare brand, [comfort zone]. Founded by Dr. Davide Bollati, and sister brand to the Davines haircare range, the new, luxe collection includes 6 products that address skin aging in a comprehensive and results-oriented way. Skin Regimen covers the needs of both younger skin with first signs of aging as well as very mature, deeply wrinkled, depleted skin.

There are 4 main processes related to our lifestyle that can contribute to accelerating or contrasting aging:

– INFLAMMATION excessive immunity response caused by unbalanced lifestyle consequence: compromised skin health and beauty, visible irritation, sensitivity.
– OXIDATION free radicals attack caused by stress, smog, smoke and metabolic reactions consequence: skin cellular unbalance, wrinkles.
– GLYCATION sugars attack caused by junk food consequence: collagen and elastin damage, loss of tone and elasticity.
– METHYLATION compromised cell replication caused by lack of exercise consequence: skin damage and diseases.

Skin Regimen

One of the great innovations of the line is the ingenious way it came to life. Knowing how crowded the skincare sector is – especially products that address skin aging – Dr. Davide Bollati looked at the product development process from a “skin, soul, science” perspective. To do so he brought together a cross-functional, multi-disciplinary committee of scientists and wellness practitioners to examine the causes of accelerated skin aging. After two years of intense research, robust dialog among the scientists, and product testing this exceptional group of experts came up with the Skin Regimen collection. In tandem they also developed a comprehensive lifestyle approach for healthy living that includes recommendations for diet, exercise and supplements. The end result is Skin Regimen, a highly advanced skincare line that corrects and prevents the existing signs of aging, prolongs youthfulness and enhances overall well-being. Read more on:

In The Mood

In The Mood launches 3 new shades of color-changing nail polish just in time for summer. The color changes based on body temperture but the coolest thing is that the nail tips are quite often different temperature from the nail beds resulting in multi-hued mani. Each bottle retails for $8, shop it at



Shade Shifter is the new color-changing coat from ORLY available in salons only. How does it work? Apply two coats of Shade Shifter over any of the ORLY Gel FX shades and wait to be amazed. If you’re warm, the Shade Shifter becomes clear, revealing the Gel FX color underneath. If you’re cool, the Shade Shifter formulas works exclusively with the ORLY Gel FX formula to transform the manicure to a darker hue.

The Mash Up collection includes a mix of hyper-brights and high-attitude hues that blur the line between energetic and outrageous. Please let us know if you are interested in hi-res images or additional information on this collection.
