Lipsticks with new formulas

The make up of lips is departing from traditional codes offered by lipsticks in tubes or lip gloss. Following the trend for a make-up with no material effect, its texture with a covering effect has lightened to the point of becoming a veil discreetly tinting the lips.


It take the form pf a blush with “Chick and Lip Glow” by Dior, launched on January 19, that provides a custom luminous glow with a very light gel formula reacting to the skin and lips moisture and that applies with a roll-on applicator suitable for both the lips and the cheeks.

Aqua Lacque by Bourjois is an a hybrid formula combining the coverage of a lipstick with a wet gloss effect, with a fluid texture and a uniform coloration.

Combining skincare and aesthetics, new lip products have appeared like the lip tint oils from Yves Saint Laurent and Clarins. The Volupté Tint-In-Oil formula by Yves Saint Laurent is based on apricot kernel oil, coriander fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, and passiflora edulis seed oil. The homogeneity of the formula – a combination of oils and pigments – is ensured by the in-house developed Color Link Infuser technology. This product comes in 8 different shades.

Clarins, the expert brand in face and body oils, proposes its Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. The Raspberry 2 version is a nourishing and beautifying lip care based on oils infused with hazelnut and organic jojoba and raspberries, that hydrates, protects and leaves the lips with a shiny, slightly tinted and smooth, film. Note that in 2010, Clarins had already associated gelled oils and vitamin E to its Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm.
