SKINN Cosmetics is a line of premium skin care and color cosmetic formulas developed by professional make-up artist Dimitri James. SKINN formulates and manufactures all of its own products in Los Angeles, using highly active, concentrated natural ingredients and avoiding excess water, fillers or packaging. This allows the brand to create potent, highly effective products at an affordable price point.
Check out the newly released products from Skinn Cosmetics below, which are now available:
Plasma Flawless Finish is a lighter-than-air, powderless color protector that perfects and mattifies the skin while refusing to cake up or settle like ordinary powders. Wrapped in micro bubbles of Argan, Flax and Rose Hips Oil, Plasma Flawless Finish protects, controls shine, and blurs pores and imperfections - - so subtle your friends won’t know you’re wearing anything at all.
Terrific as an all day and night touch up, use the included sponge to pat, not rub, onto the desired areas of the face. ($40)
The skin under and around the eyes is delicate and thin and has a nasty habit of looking dry and crinkled when makeup is applied. The Under Eye Decrinkler wand holds the solution. The special decrinkling complex smooths out the look of arid lines and firms skin for a super even look that not only lasts all day, but smooths skin for lasting and enduring benefits. Working triple-time, the Decrinker also provides an instant lid lift - all the while avoiding the eggshell film other products can produce.
The secret to the wand’s success comes from a gentle emulsion that provides immediate and long-term decreased wrinkles through the natural film forming benefits of Osilift, a sugar based tensor that immediately smooths wrinkles, and Intensyl, a bio-polymer that offers significant and rapid anti-wrinkle benefits. Accompanied by Aquacell, a natural complex that reduces fine lines, and L’Sens and hyaluronic acid, the skin smooths out from increased hydration. ($22 for 3.5ml)
These twinsets, a lipstick and a gloss, are your go-to shades for any occasion. The AM shade is a pleasant flattering color that looks polished and pretty – perfect for running errands or running a meeting. The PM shade adds just enough of a punch to make you feel ready for anything the night throws your way, date? Girls’ night out? No matter what, you’ll have the right shade anytime, anywhere. ($18 each)
Skinn's waterproof Smudge Sticks deliver beauty that lasts.
Smudge Sticks glide on effortlessly in four new chic and versatile colors: Royal Indigo (a midnight sky shade), Sultry Slate (dark gray), Golden Plum (lip toned purple) and Cleopatra Black (blackest black). Use your Smudge Sticks for eyeliner and shadow. ($15 each)
Skinn’s Pure Pore Hydro-Enzymatic Deep Pore Cleanser reaches deep to clean out stubborn pore-clogging debris helping purge pores for cleaner, healthier-looking skin. The Pure Pore formula is loaded with enzymes, minerals, prebiotics and salicylic acid to gently rid the skin of dirt and dead skin cells without causing irritation. ($18.50)
It’s time to ditch your clunky makeup bag for Skinn Cosmetics’ new Palette of Perfection: The Must-Haves. All you need for a complete makeup application in one convenient and elegant compact.
Never leave home unprepared as Skinn has got your bases covered with the “mock-croc” kit. The no-spill, no-hassle 33-piece compact includes concealer, blush, translucent powder, eyeliner, eyeshadow, lip color and lipgloss. ($42.50)
Naughty is the new nice. That’s the mantra and message of the soon-to-be release “tell all” how-to book from beauty maestro Dimitri James with Jean Penn, scheduled to hit shelves June, 2012 . In Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls: How to Turn Up the Heat and Add Sex Appeal to Everyday Situations, James, founder of Skinn Cosmetics, creates a new kind of finishing school – one for nice girls who always finish anywhere but first. Tired
of seeing the many “nice girls” in his life constantly overlooked both in the work and romance departments, James, a celebrity makeup artist, style guru, and television personality, shows readers how to look classy, not trashy, trading the prim, proper uniform of “safe” clothing, makeup and hair for something sexier and more inviting, but still situation-appropriate.
