beauty | Longevity LIVEIn this product review article, we share on the best and latest in beauty so that you know exactly what to expect from the newest products on the shelves right now.

1. If you want instantly luminous skin, you need to get a primer with active ingredients

Try:

Sisley Instant Éclat Base Lumière, R1 025, www.edgars.co.za

Why does it work?

The Instant Éclat primer uses a unique skincare formula to both provide an instant, luminous complexion and strengthen your skin’s natural healthy glow. It uses Sisley’s new “Light Catching System” technology, containing pearlescent particles that give the primer a luminous, subtly pink satin finish, as well as a soft-focus gel and agent that help to smooth and even out the surface of your skin. In addition, Instant Éclat contains four main active ingredients – kiwi extract, butcher’s broom extract, padina pavonica extract and vegetable glycerine – that work together to improve the skin’s energy and vitality, and restore plumpness, tone and hydration levels.

2. If you want full coverage, you need to get a highly pigmented concealer.beauty | Longevity LIVE

Try:

Bobbi Brown Instant Full Coverage, R510, www.bobbibrown.co.za

Why does it work?

Sometimes it’s not so easy to get all the beauty sleep you need, and definitive action needs to be taken the morning after. Bobbi Brown’s latest Instant Full Coverage is a concentrated, highly pigmented concealer that aims to give complete coverage and brighten any stubborn dark circles or tired lines. It uses a non-drying formula that helps to balance your skin’s natural moisture levels for a more comfortable feel, and the long-wear formula is water, sweat and humidity-resistant. Just remember to prep the eye area with a hydrating eye cream, to create a smooth surface for the concealer to work optimally.

3. If you want healthy, manicured nails, you need to get a hydrating nail polish. beauty | Longevity LIVE

Try:

Orly Breathable Treatment & Colour, R169, www.indiglow.co.za

Why does it work?

We tend to be hard on our nails, covering them with color, gel or acrylic, so they often don’t have time to recover and can get dehydrated. Orly’s latest Breathable Treatment & Color range aims to give your nails the break they need, while still giving you the satisfaction of having them painted. This line of polish has been formulated to allow oxygen and hydration to penetrate the nail, allowing it to stay moisturized, even when painted. The formula nourishes and strengthens nails with argan oil, pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin C, and the product doesn’t necessarily need a base coat or top coat, which cuts your manicure time in half.
