By now you know that I am completely obsessed with Decorte Cosmetics. This is a fabulous Japanese line that is available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. The color cosmetics are incredible. I’ve previously written about their lip palettes – The New Nudes and The New Reds, both gorgeous lippie collections that have totally converted me into a lip palette lover. I’ve also written about the Priming Essence, which is a beautiful opalescent primer that I am now using sparingly because I am dreading running out of it. My other favorite is the Soft Creme Foundation, a fantastic foundation that will forever be in my top five foundations of all time.
Today I have one more fab foundation find from Decorte, as well as a truly impressive concealer! This line just gets better and better.
I have the Creme Concealer ($60) in Light, and it also comes in Light Medium and Medium. Saks says, “It’s a paradox: Hyper-color and condition in one. Double-pigment technology provides extreme tonal color while helping soften delicate skin with botanicals for a most comfortable, just-matte finish. Long-wearing. Non-drying.”
This stick foundation reminds me of the stick Cle de Peau concealer, although it isn’t as thick and it blends so much better. It provides the same sort of coverage, though. Dark undereye circles are gone, gone, gone and the concealer lasts all day long. I have a big problem with deep blue under my eyes so I need coverage, and the Creme Concealer really takes care of everything. Color me impressed!
The Decorte Powder Foundation Compact ($95) is so lovely I can’t even sit still as I write this. Oh is this good!!! Saks says, “Experience the unexpected. Velvety to the touch, this compact foundation combines a soft-crystal texture with a cascade of hydrating and conditioning benefits. Uber-antioxidant Shirakaba Tonic infuses skin with calm and renewal. Washi Paper Optics create a low-definition look for a luxe new luminosity. Layers weightlessly for individual, medium coverage. Long-wearing.”
The Powder Foundation Compact comes in a sleek black case with the square of powder foundation on one side and an application sponge on the other. The application sponge is quite nice, and works well for initial application and for touch ups. The foundation is just lovely. It gives great coverage so easily and effortlessly – it just glides right on without any need for blending or buffing. The finish is soft and natural and not powdery at all. I am so in love with this!
My shade is 351 Cool Ivory. There is a great array of shades, 12 in all, although I must say the shades seem pretty off on my computer monitor. I deduced my foundation shade, but if you aren’t sure you can always head on over to Saks and check this out in person. Believe me, it is WORTH IT. If you haven’t tried Decorte yet, please do yourself a favor and check it out!! I haven’t been so impressed with a line in a very long time. You will have a ball and I know you’ll find lots of things you’ll never want to live without. – Lisa
