The scent of the first time in love, the face mask that Eva Green would love, the eyeshadow in the pencil for any occasion, and all the other novelties you need this week.
#Reglam, Lord & Berry eyeshadow pencil
If you are not yet familiar with the Lord & Berry brand, we are urgently fixing it: until recently, beauticians went straight to Milan to try products in laconic black and white cases. Eminent makeup artists have used them on the backstage of fashion shows since the 90s, and now you can also feel like a model on the catwalk - Lord & Berry products have made it to Moscow.
The brand's trademark is pigmented lip and eye products, such as these shadows in pencil. Soft as velvet, they do not roll into the crease of the eyelid during the day, emphasize the contour of the eyes and act as a reliable base for classic dry eyeshadow. All shades in the #Reglam collection are neutral - from light beige to red-brown, similar to ground spices, so they are suitable for the office, and for a date, and for long walks along the streets of Milan.

Eye cream Ocean Secrets, Thalion
The novelty Thalion was tested by the chief editor of BeautyHack Karina Andreeva:
“I started to treat eye creams with special care this year: patches in my care (even for young skin - I'm almost 23) are no longer enough to defeat dark circles under the eyes and puffiness. And now I got my hands on a novelty of a French brand, which was created in the early 90s by the father and son of Prizhan. Today it is the only company specializing in marine cosmetology: the brand is engaged in the processing of algae, sea plants and water, as well as conducts laboratory activities, produces and sells cosmetics (in the arsenal - spa treatments for face and body, sun line, food supplements, teas).
I'll tell you about eye cream. The novelty contains three patented active marine ingredients, three types of hyaluronic acid and a multi-correcting complex. A promising formula! And in fact, these are not just words on the packaging. I tested the new product for a week in the morning and noticed great results. I like that the product is quickly absorbed, does not leave a greasy and sticky film and pleasantly cools the delicate skin around the eyes. I apply with smoothing movements from the inner corners of the eyes to the outer edge. After a week of use, dark circles under the eyes disappeared, and the look, even without patches, became fresh. At the same time, my mother tested the product, who admitted that in two weeks the skin became more elastic, and mimic wrinkles were smoothed out.

Eau de parfum Emporio Armani In Love With You, Giorgio Armani
What does love smell like? BeautyHack editorial assistant Arina Zarudko is in love with the smell of vanilla, peonies, champagne and warm hugs. Whatever associations are born with this word, falling in love is always something fresh, a little sugar and light, like the first kiss under the shadow of a gloomy city. Emporio Armani has created its floral-fruity symphony of falling in love, which embodies the very essence of this magical feeling. Eau de parfum for delicate and sensitive, but at the same time bright and bold, in the heart of which the fire of passion flares up. Here's what Arina says about him:
“The new fragrance Emporio Armani plays with sweet notes of ripe berries: raspberries, cherries, black currants, smoothly flowing into a floral bouquet of rose and jasmine, spiced with a hint of wormwood. At the heart of the fragrance is patchouli. The perfume has a pronounced sweetness, it is playful, alluring and as if pushes you to light coquetry. I am a true connoisseur of sweet aromas, so it was not easy for me to resist the anthem of falling in love - and why?
I warn you: applying it for the first time, you will not be able to avoid the fate about which the name of the perfume "In love with you" says - it is impossible not to fall in love with this fragrance. Who knows, maybe it is he who will be on you when you happen to meet your soul mate? In the end, In Love With You is meant to remind you of the most wonderful feeling, of youth, of freshness and all kinds of follies that we are ready for for love."

Soothing mask Phyto Corrective Masque, SkinCeuticals
The owner of sensitive skin, actress Eva Green, does not like the SkinCeuticals brand (you can find other favorite brands of the stars here), and it is not surprising - since 1997, this medical cosmetics has been helping women stay young and beautiful. So the new mask performs several tasks at once, actively caring for the skin: moisturizes, soothes, gives radiance, refreshes and instantly relieves any discomfort.
The green gel on the skin becomes transparent - you apply a thick layer, rinse off with cool water after 10-15 minutes and evaluate the result. It will surprise you: there will be no trace of redness, peeling will disappear, and there will be a pleasant chill on the skin (therefore, the mask is recommended to be used after exercise or a hot shower). The extract of thyme leaves is responsible for toning, and extracts of cucumber and olive leaves are responsible for relieving discomfort. If after a couple of minutes in the cold you turn into a red-cheeked butuza, then appreciate the presence of a dipeptide - it additionally soothes and reduces skin sensitivity. But most importantly, after the mask, the skin will become perfectly smooth - try to resist and not touch it with your hands every five minutes.

Cream-concentrate Youth Retinol Oil Concentrate with a retinol content of 0.3%, Darphin
The basis of the new anti-age product from Darphin is retinol. A whimsical ingredient that works great when used under the right circumstances (not used in summer or during pregnancy and lactation) and in the right products. BeautyHack editor Julia Kozoliy spoke about the new product and its components:
“Darphin tried to maintain the perfect balance and added to the cream the maximum concentration of natural retinol allowed in the EU - 0.3%. And so that the ingredient, sensitive to oxygen, light, temperature extremes, does not lose its strength, it was enclosed in light and airtight capsules, and the product itself - in an opaque package.
The main task of Youth Retinol Oil Concentrate is to accelerate the natural production of collagen, stimulate cell renewal and improve complexion and skin texture. In addition to retinol, the composition contains jojoba, macadamia, sesame and argan oils, which are responsible for additional nutrition. Do not be confused by the shock list of ingredients - the product is suitable for all skin types: from very dry and sensitive to oily!"

Cushion Light Velvet Cushion, Make Up For Ever
BeautyHack editor-in-chief Karina Andreeva is very fond of the Water Blend foundation (I wrote about it here): after it it is difficult to surprise her with anything, but the new Make Up For Ever did not disappoint. First, the format: I opened a convenient package and, using a cushion-puff, deftly and quickly distributed the product. Secondly, the fluid texture: the water-based product contains silicon dioxide (porous quartz), which absorbs excess oils in the cushion and excess sebum. The finish is semi-matte and the skin is smoothed like in Facetune. Thirdly, the cream does not roll and stays on the skin for up to 5-6 hours, after which it can be promptly renewed. And, finally, the fourth indisputable plus is the SPF 50 filter (be sure to take the cushion on your next vacation at sea). Available in six shades - you will definitely find yours!

Comb The Original Strawberry, Tangle Teezer
Hair needs to be given proper attention, and you need to start small - choosing the right comb. BeautyHack editor Sofia Vorobyova has tried different options, but now she is a strict conservative with Tangle Teezer in a new “strawberry” shade in her hands. As soon as you start combing your hair, a pleasant shiver runs through your body - this is not just a comb, but a wonderful scalp massager:
“I have a long-standing love for Tangle Teezer teeth - they are very flexible, of different lengths, and due to their softness they do not injure the scalp. The anatomical shape of the Tangle Teezer makes it comfortable to hold in your hand. The hair on the brush, of course, remains, because hair loss is a physiological process, but there are significantly fewer of them than with other combs. After application, the hair became less chopped and cut off.
If you are as much a lover of hair oils as I am, then in a duet with Tangle Teezer this product can be evenly distributed over the entire length of the hair. I had never combed wet hair before - I knew that damage could not be avoided. And Tangle Teezer does it carefully (and the hair also dries much faster!) In winter, I don’t part with this wonderful comb at all - it relieves electrostatic stress and cheers up with a bright coloring”.

Loose face powder ProTouch Setting Powder, Pink, KISS New York Professional
The American brand of decorative cosmetics KISS New York Professional appeared in Russia about a year ago, and during this time we managed to appreciate the unusual shades and rich pigments of the products. And now a novelty has come out that will help fix all this beauty - reliably and for a long time. It has already been tested by BeautyHack editorial assistant Arina Zarudko:
“Matting powder is the best friend of girls who struggle with oily sheen. But I, for example, do not really like to powder myself during the day - the effect of the "mask" from the layering of cosmetics scares me. For this reason, I prefer light loose powders that fix makeup and allow you not to think about it throughout the day.
ProTouch Setting Powder is one of those products that have both matting and fixing effects. This fine powder is suitable for all skin types and perfectly completes makeup, mattifying the skin and protecting it from the hateful shine. It is presented in two variations: colorless and pink. I gave preference to the second one, and you shouldn't worry that it will give the skin the same shade, but I would still recommend the colorless version to “snow white”. You need to apply powder all over your face as a finishing touch in your makeup and do not be afraid to go over your lips and eyelids with a brush - lipstick and shadows will stay with you all day."

Shampoo and conditioner "Revitalization" Revitalise-Me Shampoo and Conditioner, Elemis
The Elemis brand, without undue modesty, is called the best in the UK, and their products have long been in beauty salons and spas. But if earlier the brand's profile was the creation of cosmetics for skin care, now there are also hair products. Anastasia Speranskaya, Senior Editor of BeautyHack, tried Revitalise-Me shampoo and conditioner and shared her impressions:
“The novelties seem to have been created especially for me - a person who has been washing his hair every day since the age of 14. My hair is so used to it that it instantly turns into icicles when I am too lazy for one day. Therefore, I choose soft and delicate cleansers - so that they both cleanse and take care of. Elemis shampoo and conditioner are ideal for daily use: natural ingredients (namely wheat proteins and green tea extract) moisturize curls, giving them shine. The funds will not give you a frantic volume, but will help them recover and literally take a break from frequent washing, coloring, complex styling - the list is endless. By the way, you will also have a rest - the aroma of thyme, basil and neroli, which you will feel in your hair during the day, is very relaxing and will definitely please not only you, but also your husband”.
Price of each product: 3 495 rubles.
Eau de toilette Mon Guerlain Bloom of Rose, Guerlain
And the rose, whatever you call it … Mon Guerlain continues to win hearts, and this time the main weapon is the rose. Each Mon Guerlain fragrance is the embodiment of femininity, sensuality and freedom, it is not without reason that the stunning Angelina Jolie became its face. BeautyHack editorial assistant Arina Zarudko fell in love with Mon Guerlain from the first glance at the advertising spread in the magazine, and since then has been actively following new launches and testing fragrances on the wrist. For some time she was ruled by Mon Guerlain Florale, but recently she discovered the most floral and ripe fragrance - Bloom of Rose:
“Applying this fragrance to the skin for the first time, it seems like there are crushed rose petals in a bottle and nothing else! In fact, the classic Mon Guerlain range (Carla lavender, Sambac jasmine, Tahitian vanilla and sandalwood) is complemented this time with sensual notes of neroli and Bulgarian rose. The rose plays quite brightly in this floral part and brings a kind of peppercorn, brightness to the composition. This fragrance cannot be described with one epithet, you can safely devote an ode to it - it is so unusual and attractive! The bouquet is quite intense, but all the notes waltz harmoniously in the aroma without overloading it.
Guerlain perfumers Thierry Wasser and Dolphin Jelq have created a fragrance that will suit women who are captivated by flower bouquets and who are sure that they are delicious. On the eve of spring, I especially want to wrap myself in rose petals and feel the feeling of happiness and freedom. Bloom of Rose is for free women who are not afraid to openly declare their charm."
Price (50 ml): 6 410 rubles.
True Luminous Velvet Lipstick, Red Flash, Avon
Avon's collection of matte lipsticks includes 15 shades, and BeautyHack editor Sofia Vorobyova found her favorite - red. The shade of Red Flash is applied easily and brightly from the first layer, which lasts for a long time on the lips - you get a real red shimmer, as if you were photographed with a flash (that's why it is "flash"):
“The formula is soft, matte, makes lips not dry, but velvety, but clear contours are guaranteed even without a pencil. And the novelty does not dry the lips, but nevertheless, before using, we advise you to apply a moisturizing balm - the shade will be juicier.
I love when lipsticks have a pleasant aroma that gives off sweetness. The new Avon is no exception (lips after it are like marshmallows). Throughout the day, the lipstick does not flow, curl or roll, and there is no plasticine feeling on the lips. Such a product will definitely find its place on the shelf of a beautygolic."
