Pour yourself a warming cup of green tea, pretend you’re on a luxurious vacation, or find a nice way to protect your garden equipment from the storm. Here are a few tips that will help chase the cold away
Concentrate on the eyes
Revlon launched “Volumazing Mascara,” which adds volume and creates perfect thick and long lashes. The new “Ultra-Ceramic” formula, based on olive oil and three different waxes, provides maximal thickness, rich pigment and buildable volume, with no smudges and lumps, and is long-wear as well, promising up to 24 hours. The rounded applicator helps easy application and professional results. NIS 69.90.
Guerlain Terracotta Sahara Jewel Sun Light duo bronzing powder is not really something that one needs – but it is oh, so much fun to have. The iconic luxurious line can be topped only by actually going on a luxurious tropical vacation in the middle of the winter.
To start with, the Terracotta powder’s fragrance includes ylang-ylang and orange blossom notes that blend with notes of tonka bean and vanilla and a touch of white musk that make it irresistible. The new formula has been reinterpreted in colorful and soft shades, retaining the essential elements of the legendary terracotta bronzing powder: a buildable golden glow, thanks to a comfortable, ultrafine texture that naturally warms the complexion all day long; a unique blend of pigments to banish dullness and create a sun-kissed glow; a formula that does not dry out skin and that provides it with lasting comfort.
To subtly warm your complexion, apply the two shades separately: the bronzing shade, then the blush on your cheekbones, or use the Guerlain secret, the “figure of 3”: blend the two shades in a circular motion and apply the powder from the forehead to the cheekbones and down to the chin to recreate a freshly sun-kissed glow. NIS 306. I know, luxury does not come cheap.
Pretty in pink
Vichy extended its mature-age line, adding Neovadiol Rose Platinum facial cream for women over 65. The rosy color of the cream immediately refreshes the skin’s appearance, while, according to the company, after one month the skin actually looks more glowing, firmer and more supple. The new formula contains beeswax, calcium and glycerin, which help create a finer texture, as well as thermal water from Vichy’s own springs that help relax the skin and strengthen it. Use every morning over face and neck.

Smashbox launched Cover Shot, new pigment-rich eye shadow palettes that will help you get a powerful and precise look. Each palette has six shades and two double-size neutral base colors. The silky formula is very rich in pigment, which, together with the creamy texture and strong colors, make mixing and matching a fun game. Try playing to create endless looks. Smashbox’s makeup artists suggest using one of the shades as a highlighter, or mixing a shadow with primer for an extra-longwear makeup. NIS 129.
