Shiseido has signed Jennifer Connelly as the newest spokesperson and face for its premium skincare line Future Solution LX. I’m pretty up to date on my Asian beauty but I didn’t know that Jennifer actually already did a campaign with Shiseido in 2009 in Asia.
Shiseido says, “We believe that she portrays the essence of the Future Solution LX line perfectly and that her inner and outer beauty will inspire our customers.”
As for me? I associate everything Jennifer Connelly with Labyrinth.
BRTC is a Korean brand you may recognize. It’s not sold within the US but their BB Creams have a rather huge cult following around the Internet.
BRTC also excels at creating some very good skincare. Some of the products in the line are HG (holy grail) material for me.
I indulged in their sheet mask collection quite a while ago when they originally introduced the Vitalizer line. I was quite excited about these masks and they promised quite a good deal of great ingredients.
Josie has a great line of cosmetics but she hasn’t yet released a concealer that gets a huge rave from the masses. For someone who injects Argan Oil into everything you’d think that her concealers would be super moisturizing…not the case in my experience.
I did happen to fall in love with her short lived full coverage concealer pen. Not everyone loved this pen, in fact, it got like a one star rating on QVC but I absolutely adored it (I hated it at first) and wish I could get my hands on some more.
The new Josie Maran Erase and Rewind Argan Concealer is actually awful but, again, for some odd reason I’m in love with it.
Rain Cosmetics introduced a very interesting selection of lip products recently entitled Blood, Sweat, & Tears. Blood is a red lip stain, Sweat is shimmer gold overcoat, and Tears is a clear gloss. The products are sold separately for $12 each however for the best results you’ll want to purchase all three for $30.
