Black Up Beauty Essentials for the Season

Every woman loves flawless makeup, here are 6 Black Up beauty essentials to add to your makeup kit this season.

We are particularly excited about these new arrivals at the Black Up Boutique and Montaigne Place

1. 8-Hour Correcting Primer  – New!

Why we love it: ”Gives a perfect mattifying finish and blends immediately with the skin!”

Review: This is an optimum solution for oily skins that have tried everything to fix their finish without success! Formulated as a true treatment, it prepares the skin for make-up while treating it to get rid of extreme shine, acne, pimples and dark spots thanks to its targeted active ingredients – Vitamin PP, Black Willow Bark Extract, Enantia Chlorantha Bark Extract and Hyaluronic Acid.

2. Full Coverage Cream Foundation

Why we love it:  “It is has an Oil and Fragrance Free formula that hides the most severe imperfections.”

Review: Dark spots, scars, flaws and blemishes have nothing on you. This foundation transforms the most severe imperfection to perfection without caking. Its innovative formula and creamy texture perfectly conceals flaws and blemishes leaving a totally smooth looking skin.

3. Anti-Shine Loose Powder

Why we love it: ”Gives a Perfectly Matte Complexion for Hours!”

Review: The Anti-Shine Loose powder provides an ultra-matte effect and helps to control shine for a flawless makeup result that lasts throughout the day. The outcome is a perfect, even, matte, yet luminous complexion.

The silky texture, exceptional softness and carefully selected pigments work together to blur minor imperfections and blend perfectly with the skin.

4. Perfect|Up Styling Mascara – New!

Why we love it: “This is the go to mascara to achieve a lush and defined extension!”

Review: The Perfect|Up Styling Mascara adds volume and definition to the lashes, even the short and curled ones! With its micro-brush and integrated reservoir, it lengthens, separates and relaxes the lashes for a panoramic volume effect.

Its formula contains active ingredients that increase the flexibility of the lashes. It is designed in two ultra-pigmented shades and the colors are deeply intense.

5Pen Concealer

Why we love it: “The pro make-up tool capable of correcting your skin tone using opposite colors!”

Review: black|Up is making the color correcting trend accessible to everyone. Using a pro make-up technique that consists of correcting your skin tone using opposite colors, it is developed specifically for colored skin. This pencil is composed of a corrective magic color on one end and a skin tone shade on the other end – the yellow, orange and red pigments of the corrective color have been perfectly selected to neutralize the darkest imperfections (dark circles, small pimples, scars, and pigmentation spots). Its ultra-pigmented cream formula blends perfectly with the skin while its convenient 2-in-1 format allows for precise, easy, and fast application.

6. Flash Color Palette

Why we love it: “Gives a perfectly tailored Make-up finish all the time!”

Review: A centerpiece of its collection, the Flash palette offers you an infinite range of possibilities to bring out the Make-up Artist side of you in brush strokes! For fans of artistic make-up, this is the ultimate tool to give free rein to your imagination and proclaim your love of color.
