RIMMEL LONDON x RITA ORA
Introducing the new Rimmel London Colour Rush Lip and Nail Collection by British singer Rita Ora. The collaboration is an ultimate display of London cool, with Ora’s young, tough vibrancy embodying Rimmel London’s ethos. It features two products: an intense colour balm, and a quick-drying nail polish.
“It was so much fun working with Rimmel”, says Rita Ora. “I guess we’re inspired by many of the same things – fashion, colour, sounds, style, life in general and London in particular. I hope Rimmel girls everywhere will love these colours as much as I do!”
Lasting Finish Colour Rush Intense Lip Colour Balm ($12.95) combines essential hydration with high-voltage colour. The chubby pencil format makes application easy, perfect for on-the-go beauty. The balm is available in six shades: candy pink Give Me a Cuddle [#100], dusty rose Keep Mauving [#200], fuchsia Rumour Has It [#220], crimson The Redder The Better [#500], coral On Fire [#600] and neutral Drive Me Nude .
Rimmel’s iconic Colour Rush 60 Seconds Nail Polish ($7.95) has been hit with Ora’s signature style, with six bold new shades created and named by the British It-Girl. The polish itself boasts an innovative anti-streak brush which, paired with the quick-dry formula, means that you can quickly freshen up your mani with just one coat of polish. The packaging features a Pop Art-inspired cap with Ora’s portrait and signature on a British stamp. Available in three “hot” shades and three “cool” shades, white White Hot Love [#703], ice pink Lose Your Lingerie [#203], ice green Breakfast in Bed [#873], fuchsia Don’t Be Shy [#323], teal Do Not Disturb [#873] and purple Midnight Rendezvous [#613].
The Rimmel London Rita Ora collection is now available from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W, selected pharmacies and selected Coles and Woolworths. Call 1800 812 663 for stockists.
L’OREAL PROFESSIONNEL TECNI.ART WILD STYLERS
Inspired by the sexy, tousled hair seen on runways across the globe, L’Oreal Professionnel has launched Tecni.ART Wild Stylers, bringing actress Kirsten Dunst on board as the international muse of the five-piece styling range. Ideal for use at home, backstage or in the salon, the innovative products achieve wild texture with no rough touch. Thanks to Mineral Technology that combines calcium carbonate with non-ionic fixing polymers, the Tecni.ART Wild Stylers allows unlimited layering with no visible residue or stiffness. With a force factor ranging from 1-4, you can choose the right amount of hold and texture for your needs.
The Techni.ART Wild Stylers range features five easy-to-use products: Crêpage de Chignon (mineral powder fixing spray), Scruff Me (dishevelling gelée), Next Day Hair (mineral texturising powder), Beach Waves (texturising salt spray), and Depolish (deconstructing paste).
International session stylist Anthony Turner (responsible for the inspired runway looks at Chloé and Kenzo) explained how he created the tousled and textured look on Kirsten Dunst for the Tecni.ART Wild Stylers campaign photos:
“For Kirsten’s great rock’n’roll, matte textured look, I experimented using Scruff Me and Depolish. I used these on damp hair and then let her hair dry naturally… Once Kirsten’s hair was dry, we were left with a really cool, dishevelled texture that I can’t wait to create again!”
The products in the L’Oreal Professionnel Techni.ART Wild Stylers range retail for $33 each, and are available from selected salons nationwide. For stockists, call 1300 651 or visit www.lorealprofessionnel.com.au
KÉRASTASE PARIS DISCIPLINE
Kérastase Paris has released Discipline, the first in-salon service for lasting discipline with complete freedom of movement, and is extended to include a range of products that allow the experience to continue at home. Discipline is designed to tame even the most unruly hair while restoring and repairing, creating shiny, smooth, fluid hair.
Unruly hair typically has an irregular surface, creating friction between hair fibres and resulting in tangling, frizziness, flyways and a lack of fluidity. The breakthrough new formula combines Morphoe-Keratine (which harnesses the highest concentration possible of Keratin to bring discipline and reparation to the hair) with Research Ceramide (an exclude bio-mimetic ceramide). Hair fibres are tamed both at the core for solid structure and on the surface for a perfect finish.
The Discipline range include five products: Bain Fluidealiste ($42) [shampoo], Bain Fluidealiste Sulfate Free ($42) [sulfate free shampoo ideal for over processed hair], Fondant Fluidealiste ($48) [conditioner], Maskertine ($60) [hair mask for in-depth damage repair] and Fluidissime ($46) [a finishing spray to protect and manage friction).
Kérastase Paris Discipline is available exclusively from Kérastase Paris Consultant Salons. To locate your nearest Kérastase Paris salon, call 1300 365 552 or visit www.kerastase.com.au
