Dr. Perricone unveils a modern innovation in makeup – the last step in skincare and first step in makeup. From his research and expertise of how skin ages – decreased blood flow and melanocytes, aging complexion and loss of pigment – to his depth of understanding the architecture of the face, bone structure and contours, Dr. Perricone designed the No Makeup Skincare Collection to layer, sculpt and enhance features.

No Makeup Skincare restores the glow of health and youthful radiance with Dr. Perricone’s signature anti-aging actives such as neuropeptides, Vitamin C, Alpha Lipoic Acid and DMAE, while addressing loss of convexity and signs of aging. Packed with mineral-based SPF of 15 or more, the full collection of barely-there beauty goodies protects and prevents future signs of aging.

No Makeup Skincare debuts with seven new products:
No Foundation Foundation, No Foundation Foundation Serum, No Concealer Concealer, No Blush Blush, No Bronzer Bronzer, No Lipstick Lipstick, No Mascara Mascara

 

no blush blush

I am usually fearful of liquid blushes as they tend to stain or be hard to blend. Well No Blush Blush has eased my worries its a standout blush. The formula is light and really easy to blend. I just dab a few dots along my cheekbone and blend with my fingers.

Br9OQ55CEAAA3Nc

Here you go – your first look at MAC’s collaboration with the Simpsons! The collection will hit the web on August 28, stores September 4, and today you’re getting your first look!

The wait is over for some at the end of the month, with a one-day sale and sneak peek of the Marge Simpson-inspired collection taking place on Saturday, July 26, at the MAC Cosmetics store in the Gaslamp District (234 Fifth Avenue, San Diego) during Comic-Con.

Of her favorite pieces in the collection, Marge “says” in a release, “They’re all so great, but I must say that Lisa’s Spikes really works well with my skin tone and of course, Beehive Blue complements my hair perfectly.” Fans will be able to purchase the collection, but will also be entitled to a Marge Simpson-style makeover from the ten pieces, which includes nail stickers ($16.50), eye shadows ($44), lipglasses ($16.50), and lashes ($18.50).

What fun colors! Are you interested in picking up the collection?
