Clarins Mission Perfection Serum and Joli Rouge Lipstick

Clarins has launched a new fall collection that includes some must-have products. Namely, the Joli Rouge lipstick and the Mission Perfection Serum. You know I love Clarins and the science behind the brand.

This new serum is the only one from the brand that focuses on dark spot correction. It is geared towards a younger demographic - women in their early thirties who are just beginning to see the signs of a poor skincare routine and sun exposure.   Mission Perfection targets discoloration and hyper pigmentation (a problem that plagues 1/3 of women in the world). It corrects but also prevents new dark spots from coming to the surface.  In my opinion, I think this particular formula is going to be preferred over other equally situated serums on the market. This one, unlike others on the market, does not change the color of your skin.  Your complexion remains the same - there are no bleaching agents in it.

Victor Henao, Director of Global Makeup Design for Estee Lauder

Victor Henao and I, after he did my makeup.
I am wearing: Double Wear To Go Foundation in the shade Sand,
Lipstick: Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in color Irrepressible,
Lip liner: Double Wear Stay In Place Lip Pencil in the color Spice,
Eye shadows: Magic Smokey Powder Shadow Stick in Charred Plum

I had the pleasure of getting my makeup done by Victor Henao, Director of Global Makeup Design for Estée Lauder.  He is the creative mind behind Kendall Jenner's makeup looks for the Modern Muse campaign. He is also responsible for a much broader creative aspect for the company, than you may first imagine. You see, Victor is part of the reason that you can now get an exact color match for your skin and lips at Estee Lauder counters nationwide.  If you follow me on Snapchat (@FashionableESQ) then you saw some videos and behind-the-scenes 'first looks' at the new iMatch2.0.

Victor helped the Estee Lauder team develop the iMatch2.0, a handheld camera that matches your skin and lip color to the perfect Estee Lauder product. Victor and I chatted about product development and, of course, makeup, as he did mine. 

iMatch2.0 eliminates the guessing game, and helps you narrow down the products and shades that really work for you.

Lancome Liqui Drama Eyeliners and Swatches

While fashion is my number one love, beauty falls in line as a close second. I've tried so many makeup products over the years that I can really tell you what brands are great and what products flop. Makeup is fun. It's the one part of the week where you can actually break up the monotony of the day-to-day routine.  If your daytime makeup needs to be subtle, then you can get creative for your night time look. One of the easiest way to amp up your face for evening, is by playing up your eyes with a good eye liner.
