HIGH-TECH beauty


Find it difficult to decide which beauty products will suit you? There’s a high-tech breed of adaptive beauty products that come to the rescue, with formulas that adapt to your unique skin tone for the perfect, personal match. I tested these fun, innovative products to give you the lowdown on the best of foolproof adaptive beauty…

1) The Natural Flush: Smash O-Glow

I was surprised when this clear gel created a healthy natural flush to the cheek, as I initially didn’t expect it to do anything. Activated by skin’s moisture, the formula reacts with your personal skin chemistry to give a uniquely-you rosy glow that appears to come from within. Easy to blend, non-sticky and with a subtle hint of colour, it’s destined to be the go-to product for the blush-shy.

2) The Kissable Lips: Dior Addict Lip Glow

Want beautifully soft lips with a natural hint of fresh color? This luxe lip balm uses Color Reviver technology to stimulate your lips’ natural color, leaving a plump, customized pinkish pout.And the nourishing formula enriched with moisturizing wild mango feels good on the lips too.

3) The Perfect red: Duwop My Private Lipstick

Do the lipstick counters in beauty halls leave you feeling confused and overwhelmed? DuWop have simplified the decision process with their universally flattering Private Lipsticks, ensuring you’ll find the perfect shade that suits you, including the tricky red and nude hues. Similar to the fun “mood” lipsticks of the Seventies, these richly pigmented lipsticks adapt to your lip tone within five minutes of application, morphing into your unique personal shade.

4) The One-Tone Foundation: Dr Perricone’s No Foundation Foundation

One shade that suits all skin tones sounds too good to be true, however this translucent foundation formula delivers natural looking coverage and blends seamlessly on both pale and deep olive complexions. With a radiant, dewy finish that gives skin a youthful feel, this anti-aging tinted moisturizer helps to correct skin undertones for an even coverage.
