A SPARKLING AND AFFORDABLE FRENCH BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR

The object of all desires returns in a limited edition, revealing a hypnotic pattern dotted with golden bubbles. Its 24 doors contain iconic Nuxe miniature skincare products and Made in France fragrances. The perfect gift for yourself, your mom or your best friend!

A LIP BALM WITH A PLUMPING EFFECT

Infused with restorative Kokum Butter and Mango Butter, Nourishing lip balm by Sisley Paris soothes dry and damaged lips and relieves discomfort, tingling and tightness caused by daily environmental aggressions. It plumps, softens and smoothes your lips.

The new balm comes in a pretty frosted pale pink glass jar and has four complementary beneficial actions: restore, protect, beautify and keep lips looking youthful.

AN INSTANT RADIANCE BOOST FOR YOUR SKIN

Makeup, excess sebum, urban pollution and impurities accumulated throughout the day leave the skin dull and dirty. Facial make-up removal that restores purity, freshness and radiance to the skin is therefore essential.

New Exfoliating Enzyme Mask by Sisley Paris is a cross between an exfoliant and a mask. Its purifying action revives the radiance of the skin and illuminates the face. The light white powder transforms into a smooth cream on contact with water. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, it incorporates papain, a natural fruit enzyme with exfoliating action contained in papaya. It stimulates the natural regeneration process while respecting the skin barrier, thus helping to eliminate impurities. Vitamin B3 rids the skin of its dull veil while giving it a boost of radiance.

HIDE, CORRECT AND ILLUMINATE YOUR SKIN

From dull complexion to spots, dark circles, pigmentation defects and fine lines – a corrective concealer helps solve these problems. The new Sisley Correct pen subtly camouflages imperfections and helps minimize their appearance. The texture offers lightweight full coverage. Simply apply the tip of the stick to imperfections, then use the foam tip to blend the edges. Its soft-focus effect evens out the skin and conceals pigmentation defects.

Correct pen also has a care action. It camouflages imperfections without drying out the skin. Alpha-bisabolol of natural origin soothes the skin.

LET IT SHINE WITH THE NEW NUXE CHRISTMAS SETS

An explosion of colors and happiness made in France: 10 elegant Nuxe boxes with shimmering reflections are guaranteed to make your eyes sparkle. Add some sparkle to someone special’s life!

In addition, Nuxe has launched two new products: Honey Lip Care contains lavender honey from Provence as well as organic camelina oil. It comforts the lips like a creamy balm and sublimates them with a beautiful shine and a non-sticky satin finish.

Pamper your dry hands and nails with the Cica Rich Hand Cream by Nuxe, which protects the hands from aggressions such as cold, wind, friction, excessive washing, hydroalcoholic gel… Its moisturizing cream texture with a velvety touch is enriched with Centella Asiatica and lavender honey.

If you are traveling to Paris, one of the best addresses for a perfumed massage ritual is the Nuxe Spa.

IT’S YOUR TIME TO SHINE GOLD, SILVER AND BLACK!

Italian brand Naj Oleari’s fall/winter makeup collection is inspired by a bold and bright color palette for glamorous looks. Makeup to wear like jewelry to enhance any outfit.

The Golden Glamor Collection brings a touch of color to the complexion by illuminating it with a sophisticated micro-pearlescent finish. The focus is on the look: the eyes are framed with graphic flourishes and touches of color with contrasting accents.

Luminous Perfection Blush is a velvety, illuminating blush that creates a healthy glow (above). The highlighter lifts and accentuates the complexion, while the blush adds the perfect pop of color.

Precise and practical, the new long-lasting eyeliner pencil in black galaxy and luminous gold (below) creates a light outline. Its bold line is linked quickly, creating graphic and trendy looks.

A NEW WOODY AMBER EAU DE PARFUM FOR MEN

James, the new Eau de Parfum from Atkinsons, captures the spirit of those who dare to pursue their passions. Men who love Lubin perfumes will love it. Like James Atkinson, the brand’s founder, who came to London and, although an underdog, became the toast of the town, thanks to his talent, flair and originality.

James, a fragrance that blends woody amber notes with spicy facets, was created by Olivier Pescheux (DIptyque, Jil Sander…) and Yann Vasnier (Tom Ford, Jo Malone, Arquiste). The new beginning embraces a warm amber floral heart and rests on an elegant woody base of elegant vetiver and patchouli.

KOREAN AND JAPANESE BEAUTY PIONEERS

skin therapy from Erborian, a successful French-Korean cosmetics brand, is a lightweight bi-phase oil that contains 17 plant extracts. It can be used before or instead of your usual night cream and works while you sleep.

The new oil smoothes, plumps and nourishes the skin. In addition, it reduces wrinkles and fine lines as well as signs of fatigue. The skin becomes more supple and radiant. It adapts to all skin types, absorbs quickly and leaves no greasy residue.

The ingredients of the new Ultimune Power Infusing Hand Cream by Shiseido are based on dual anti-aging technology. It moisturizes and protects the skin from external aggressions, making the hands softer.
