Decorte The New Reds

I raved about the Decorte The New Nudes Lip Palette at the beginning of summer and I’ve been wearing it all season.  The colors are gorgeous and the wear is fantastic!  Today I am once again professing my profound admiration for this Japanese brand found exclusively at Saks.  They have incredible lip palettes, and I am in a mega swoon over The New Reds Lip Palette ($95).

The New Nudes Lip Palette transformed me into a lip palette fan, and now I am moving on to The New Reds Lip Palette, fall-friendly shades that have the same pluses as The New Nudes.  The shades in The New Reds range from medium pink to deep reddish-brown. They are all gorgeous, wearable, and mixable colors. They look great alone or in combination with one another. The formula has great pigmentation and lasting power. The finish is semi-matte and leave lips nicely hydrated. I’m not a huge fan of the brushes that are included in the palette, so I would recommend using your own. Otherwise, just like The New Nudes, I think this is a perfect palette just with deeper shades.

Saks says, “EXCLUSIVELY AT SAKS FIFTH AVENUE. 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. Made in Japan.”

The New Reds is a fantastic combination of brighter and deeper shades that is truly perfect for transitioning into fall.  I love mixing and matching the shades together, and sometimes mix them with The New Nudes to create ombre looks.

The New Reds Lip Palette is expensive but boy, it’s wonderful.  The formula is simply elegant, the pigmentation is excellent, and the colors are fantastic.  If this fits into your budget I highly recommend it.  In fact, all the color products I’ve tried so far from Decorte are some of the best I’ve come across – take a trip to Saks just to check them out!! – Lisa

Perfectly primed with Decorte Priming Essence

I am a little weird when it comes to primers.  Ok, so that’s not my only area of weirdness…but it’s definitely one of them.  I have probably bought and tested more primers than any other cosmetic product.  My skin does not hold onto product without a good primer – blush and foundation are gone within an hour.  It’s bizarre.  A primer makes all the difference, and a great primer does even more than keep foundation and blush in place.Decorte Priming Essence

I was recently sent the Decorte Priming Essence ($65) to test, and I am going to have to go back and update my article on my top ten favorite primers to add this one (check out my top ten list HERE).  I have used this every day since I got it, and am dreading the day I run out.

Decorte is sold only at Saks Fifth Avenue.  Saks says, “Always air-light, the Priming Essence creates an endlessly even and uniform pre-surface to extend and make the most of the foundation experience. Rice emollients gently hydrate as self-optimizing color technology neutralizes redness and off-tones for a newly transparent illumination. Skin-loving infusions are embedded within. Composed from the Japanese White Birch, Shirakaba Tonic lends exceptional antioxidant activity. Its generous calming properties are known to both protect and renew. Disappears instantly.”

The Priming Essence is a light primer that immediately sinks in and doesn’t leave skin sticky or tacky.  It has a opalescence that gives skin an instant glow that looks natural and wonderful.  On days when I don’t want to wear makeup, I still put this on to even my skin tone and give my skin some brightness.   On days I do wear makeup, it keeps my foundation in place all day long.  My blush lasts and lasts, and looks vibrant and fresh after 7 hours of wears.  I don’t have to powder my nose every hour, probably because of the rice powder, but it doesn’t dry out my skin at all.  It’s just wonderful.

So far everything I have tried from Decorte has been a total home run.  You have GOT to stop by Saks to check out this fabulous import from Japan, and if you are in need of a primer put the Priming Essence on your list pronto.  – Lisa
