24/7 Fashion & Beauty



The art of contouring with makeup has proven to be a very strong trend in the makeup industry over the last couple of years, and has been projected to remain a trend for quite some time. Its appeal is the ability to enhance the features one likes and diminish what they don’t. Many companies offer products to contour the face, but only few have ventured past that into other areas such as body and even eye contouring; Bellápierre’s Lip Contour &Highlighting Kit is the first of its kind. It contains everything one needs to enhance their pout with four full-sized products and step-by-step instructions. This eye catching kit is available in four shade options: Nude, Natural, Fierce, and Red with coordinating lipstick and lip liner in each.

The first step to contouring the lips is to ensure that they are clean and exfoliated, this will provide a smooth surface for application. Once the lips have been prepped, they are ready for the application of the Makeup Base, which is meant to prime and cancel out any natural pigmentation – so a truer lipstick color is achieved. This versatile cream dries to a powder-like consistency and is formulated with all natural oils, waxes, and mineral pigments. Makeup Base should be dabbed on the lips in a thin layer, using a clean finger.

The next step is to highlight just above the top lip, this will help bring emphasis to the skin surrounding the top lip, thereby making it appear larger. This subtle highlight is achieved with the included Highlighter pencil, which is made from natural botanical waxes such as jojoba and safflower, vitamin E, and pure mineral pigments. There is a natural skin tone variation on the face that is often covered by foundation, this product will help to reinstate a natural-looking dimensionality. The sleek pencil form of this Highlighter allows for precise application that is easy and familiar to the consumer.

Once the highlighting has been completed, the next step involves contouring with the Gel Lip Liner, which is meant to add definition and dimension to the lips. By slightly over-lining the natural lip line and strategically placing vertical lines along the top and bottom lips, the illusion of larger and fuller lips is achieved. It may seem complicated in writing, but the step-by-step pictorial on the kit ensures foolproof application every time. The Gel Lip Liner is also made with ingredients such as natural waxes, mineral pigments, and antioxidants.

The fourth and final item in the kit is Bellápierre’s award-winning Mineral Lipstick, which is meant to be applied within the outer contour lines, and smoothed over the inner contour lines. Mineral Lipstick is packaged in a chic, cross-hatch patterned tube with delicate silver accents. It is formulated with natural waxes, mineral pigments, and antioxidants. Application of this product ties everything together, and is the finishing touch to lip contour and highlighting.

To summarize, the Lip Contour & Highlighting Kit by Bellápierre Cosmetics is ideal for anyone looking to achieve fuller or more defined lips, by providing all of the necessary tools for a complete lip look. An added bonus is that the four products included are non comedogenic, as well as certified cruelty-free.

The Makeup Base weighs 8.5 grams, the Mineral Lipstick weighs 3.5 grams, and the Highlighter and Lip Liner pencils are 1.8 grams each. This kit comes packaged in a sturdy paper box with illustrations and instructions printed on it, and retails on the Bellápierre website

Bellapierre Cosmetics was founded in 2005 by CEO David Oren. With a background in formulating a successful skincare line, Mr. Oren’s goal was to provide makeup to consumers that is naturally safe, and that exceeds performance expectations. The rationale was that the skin is the largest organ of the body, so why not treat it with the same respect as your heart, or any other vital organ?

Patty Colman, Beauty Sleep Expert and president of About Face Products, is all about a good night’s sleep and the benefits that it provides.  Like Dr. Oz, she knows what a crucial role beauty sleep plays in how we look and feel, and she created The Wrinkle Prevention Pillow with memory foam to help us preserve our skin while we get the rest we need.

With rave reviews and testimonials from leading Beverly Hills skincare experts, The Wrinkle Prevention Pillow launches a new category in the skincare and anti-aging industry.  The American Academy of Dermatology cautions that sleeping in certain positions night after night leads to “sleep lines – wrinkles that become etched into the surface of the skin and don’t disappear once you’re up.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, sleeping on your side increases wrinkles, while sleeping facedown can give you a furrowed brow.  With The Wrinkle Prevention Pillow, the ergonomically contoured center makes sleeping on your back more natural and comfortable as it supports the head, neck and spine with its exclusive memory foam. The patented design lifts and cradles your head so that you can sleep in any position you want and permanent lines and wrinkles don’t develop on the face, neck and chest during sleep.

How does the pillow affect use of other skincare products?
Women of all ages use cosmetics that cover their dark circles and make them appear awake and refreshed. “When you lay flat during the night, fluids pool underneath your eyes to create a sense of puffiness. Our pillow helps prevent these puffy eyes, by slightly elevating your head, thus eliminating the need for heavy under-eye concealer the next morning. The pillow also maximizes the benefits and results of night cream because it will not rub off on your pillow,” shares Ms. Colman.

Because of the unique shape of The Wrinkle Prevention Pillow, About Face Products offers custom silk pillowcases to help protect the style and texture of all hair types. The lavish pillow is encased in a 100% well-appointed cotton fabric to keep the pillow clean when washing the case. The pillow is offered in four soothing colors including ivory, dusty rose, chocolate and purple.

Wrinkle Prevention Pillow – SRP $99.00

Each additional pillowcase is $28.95.

The About Face Products Wrinkle Prevention Memory Foam Pillow is available online at wrinklepreventionpillow.com, and at upscale spas, beauty stores and salons.

Shanghai’s Original, Unparalleled Beauty Event since 1998

China Beauty Expo (CBE), Asia’s leading beauty trade, recently concluded its 20th edition on a high note, reinforcing its status as the definitive exhibition for the market.

2,120 (an increase of 15% from 2014) suppliers from all over the world, including Cheislie Formulations, Jala, L’oreal, P&G and Reef Cosmetics, Shanghai Jahwa, showcased the latest beauty and cosmetics innovations during the three-day event. This year’s event occupied over 150,000 sqm (an increase of more than 20% from 2014) of exhibition space.

Held in Shanghai New International Expo Center from 19 to 21 May 2015, CBE registered a total of 312,000 visits from trade professionals from across the region, which represented a 14% increase compared to 2014. This year, a large proportion of visitors were senior decision-makers, including executives from companies such as SASA, Sephora, Watsons and a number of leading distributors. Claudia BONFIGLIOLI, International Director, Informa Beauty and Informa Baiwen (CBE), said, “The global beauty market has been projected to reach new heights, with Asia continuing to lead the global market in the years ahead. The show is well poised to support the industry’s growth, and we look forward to bringing more of the industry together to help them realize the full potential that the market possesses.”

Professional Trade Event

Exhibitors at this year’s event were pleased with their decision to participate, citing the show’s audience, the focus on doing business, and its level of professionalism as key benefits. In addition, returning exhibitors found the show had grown in stature, not just in terms of attendance but also with the addition of new visitor attractions, such as the WeChat Conference and CBE-Beyond Beauty Trends Conference. “The highly-charged atmosphere, as well as top quality discussions, are what characterized China Beauty Expo 2015. We are optimistic that several business partnerships will develop from the contacts established during the exhibition. We will definitely be here again in 2016!” said Mr Christian PALIX, Founder, YESforLOV SAS (France).

Creating Opportunities and Building Connections

CBE aims to bridge the gap between suppliers, manufacturers, and distributors, as well as facilitate business and learning opportunities that ultimately inspire new product development. As part of its efforts to connect businesses, the organizers held the inaugural Business Meetings Asia, where a carefully selected group of exhibitors presented their products to specially selected senior buyers from China and six other countries.

Popular with attendees and providing further opportunities for business ideas included the Asian Brand Building Lab and the Beauty Ingredients & Formulation Shanghai Conference. These visitor attractions help visitors maximize their time at the show by drawing their attention to the upcoming beauty trends, as well as complimentary one-on-one vision consultations.

Having received critical acclaims from participants all around, the next edition of CBE looks set to be a bigger and stronger business platform as the organizers, Informa and Shanghai Baiwen, are committed to serve the global beauty industry with this event in the years ahead.

Response to the next edition has been overwhelming, with over 70% re-booking already committed onsite.

China Beauty 2016, 18-20 May 2016

The 21st edition of CBE will once again be held in Shanghai, from 18 – 20 May 2016. “We are pleased to announce that we have signed a long-term contract with the Shanghai New International Expo Center (上海新国际博览中心), where CBE has been held since 2005. We are looking forward to welcome more than 2,300 participating companies, over 180,000sqm of exhibition space. In addition, CBE will continue developing more beneficial and more in-depth contents, to continue the support of the development of the beauty industry,” said SANG Jingmin, Chairman of China Beauty Expo Organising Committee.
