Almay – Spring/Summer 2013 Beauty Collection
Every May, like a breath of fresh air, the Revlon team comes to Vancouver to unveil the newest beauty products from Almay. Earlier this month, Modern Mix Vancouver had a chance to celebrate with one our favorite cosmetic brands the beauty of spring and all things Almay.
Last year, we learned the beautiful story behind Revlon’s completely hypoallergenic line of cosmetics created by Al for his wife May who had sensitive skin. Affordable and accessible with a range of products that work it didn’t take long for this brand to quickly become a part of our everyday best.
Invested in listening to their customers, Almay is a special part of the Revlon family that puts a lot of value in the research and development of products that not only make you look good, but are good for your skin too. One of the newest products in the line for spring is the Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm. We almost had to blink twice when we were told this product is gluten free. Because Almay is created for sensitive skin, the product line has always focused on the purest ingredients. All products have been hypo-allergenic from the start. For $8.95 this latest lips balm combines the comfort and care of a balm with the color and shine of a gloss. Made with avocado oil and vitamin E the silky smooth feeling nourishes your lips instantly. With 10 new colors, this product will be available in stores across the country July 2013.
If you can’t wait until July, Almay is launching two new products in June 2013 including the Smart Shade CC Cream and the Smart Shade Bronzer Powder. The CC Cream is a complexion corrector meant to improve the clarity of your skin over time. For women who don’t like wearing layers of makeup, it’s the perfect balance between a foundation and a moisturizer. CC cream stands for “color correct” – so while it provides coverage for beautiful skin it also nourishes with each wear. The Smart Shade CC cream comes in 3 different shades for $16.95 each.
Smart Shade Powder Bronzer has a mosaic blush that swirls three hues together with a simple swipe of the brush. The powder is meant to provide an even, flawless application for a effortless, sun-kissed glow. We love that it comes with a built in brush and mirror for easy touch ups and application.
In celebration of Mother’s everywhere during the month of Mother’s Day, brand ambassador Kate Hudson shares her first memories of experiencing makeup with her mom. Watch the stunning blue-eyed blondes share their story for Almay here. We’re lucky to have shared this special experience with our moms and can also appreciate learning from the best.
