Priyanka Chopra-Jonas is Max Factor’s new global ambassador

Filed by Lucire staff/July 1, 2021/10.33

Priyanka Chopra-Jonas is the new global ambassador and creative collaborator for Max Factor, with the brand changing direction to focus more on personal empowerment and co-creation rather than employing its traditional Hollywood angle.
   Chopra-Jonas, as an actress, producer, philanthropist and UNICEF goodwill ambassador, fits the brand’s new direction, as Stefano Curti, chief brands’ officer at Coty, noted: ‘Priyanka is the modern embodiment of our diverse Max Factor audience, and a champion of the empowerment that comes with transformation. We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with her and know we will be able to achieve so many extraordinary things together.’
   Chopra-Jonas said, ‘A brand with a rich heritage that spans more than 100 years, Max Factor is behind the most iconic and effortless beauty transformations in pop culture, and I am honoured to be collaborating as their new global ambassador. Confidence can be someone’s most powerful asset, and it’s important to trust that your beauty products will deliver. From make-up artists to people all over the globe, I know I’m in good company in sharing my excitement for Max Factor’s new product launches and I’m proud to be part of the brand’s next chapter.’
   The first product that Chopra-Jonas will endorse is the FaceFinity All Day Flawless Airbrush Finish 3in1 Foundation, a product that combines primer, concealer and foundation. Chopra-Jonas’s input has included working with the language in the campaign, to accurately reflect her own voice and personal experience with the product.

 


Hungary for ageless skin: Ilona Beauty débuts the serum of the century

Filed by Lucire staff/June 25, 2021/22.08


Do you believe in reincarnation? Whatever your spiritual inclination or philosophy, one fact is certain: skin ageing. The good news is that whether you are on your first, tenth, or hundredth time around, skin care methods and science improve with each passing year to temper the ravages of time.
   This year, prestige brand Ilona Beauty introduces a breakthrough in skin care technology. Beyond C Corrective Serum is the 50-year culmination of pioneering insights from one of the vanguards of the beauty industry, employing pharmaceutical-equivalent discoveries in skin and science.
   While K-beauty may be all the rage the last few years, and French beauty carries a romantic intrigue, Europeans know Hungarians have been the undisputed royalty of skin care for centuries. Budapest alone is home to over 100 mineral thermal springs, and spa visits are a national pastime. Æsthetic practitioners are an esteemed group and must complete a rigorous training programme.
   Today, Ilona, with its Hungarian founder, accesses ground-breaking ingredients and technologies into premium performance formulas designed for consumers who consider skin care a high priority. Beyond C Corrective Serum pushes skin care efficacy beyond the expected and into the exceptional. This skin reincarnating serum, housed in a distinctive dual-sided black and gold vessel, incorporates corrective technologies that reach maximum potency at the moment of unity. The black vessel contains a novel probiotic and micronized niacin while the gold vessel holds a patented, hyper-potent, permeable form of vitamin C integrating into a clinical-grade, one-step, one-minute, fast-acting 25 per cent citrus fruit purée peel. It is formulated with 10 per cent L-ascorbic acid blended with L-lactic acid, Plant C-Stem and retinal to deliver youthful, soft and glowing skin.

Irish singer–songwriter Una Healy is the new face of Swedish beauty brand IsaDora.
   Formulated in Sweden and Switzerland, IsaDora is cruelty-free, fragrance-free, tested for sensitive skin, and made in Europe.
   Healy will appear in three seasonal campaigns. A capsule collection tied to her name comprise new products and her favourites from the current IsaDora range.
   Photographs for the campaign were shot earlier this year at Luttrellstown Castle by Kevin Fox of We Shoot with all COVID precautions, according to the company. Make-up and hair were by Sue Brophy, nails by Nagila Santyos, and styling by Corina Gaffey.
   ‘I like to look and feel my best, but my make-up routine needs to fit around my family, career and lifestyle. IsaDora is the perfect partner for me because I am always looking for products that are easy to use, with long-lasting results I feel good about. I live a pretty busy life and I need to know that the products I choose will look as good at 8 p.m. as they did at 8 a.m. I have always had a love for make-up and I was so honoured to have been asked to be the face of such an amazing brand,’ said Healy in a release.
   ‘As our first-ever Irish ambassador, Una Healy is a perfect fit for IsaDora. Her talent, warmth, effortless looks and real beauty embody the IsaDora ethos. Una manages to balance an accomplished career with being a busy mum of two which is what a lot of IsaDora consumers can relate to. We couldn’t be prouder to partner with her. The Irish market is important to us and we are happy to continue investing in growing the brand here,’ said IsaDora Ireland’s Michelle Carr.
   In Ireland, the capsule collection is available from selected Shaws, McCauleys, McCabes, Lloyds and leading pharmacies nationwide, and at McCauley.ie.

Pressology launches beauty range with Ayurvedic principles

Filed by Lucire staff/May 25, 2021/9.46



Pressology, founded in San Francisco by cell and molecular biologist Sally Nasser, is a conscious plant-based Ayurveda beauty brand using USDA-certified organic formulations to heal and enhance the skin. Ingredients include Moringa oil, lentils, turmeric and jasmine, and the products are all made in San Francisco by strong women of colour.
   Nasser has a background in Ayurvedic medicine and holistic self-care, and says that from a young age, she understood how clean, organic ingredients worked with the natural harmony of the human body. She was sceptical of the ingredients used by many beauty companies and their long-term effects, and began developing her own products using natural ingredients from her parents’ kitchen. She believes in a holistic, whole-body approach, and that what you put on your skin is as important as what you put in your body.
   Items include Pressology’s jasmine rose water, where the jasmine helps with relaxation; its Golden Hour botanical serum with omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9 and vitamins; Moringa Meltdown, a cleansing oil; Moringa Mask, a facial treatment with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents; and, what we think is the key product in this launch range, the red lentil enzyme, a facial treatment that fortifies and strengthens skin.
   To take things a step further, Pressology donates 1 per cent of its annual sales to environmental causes, and gives back to Project Night Night, which provides sleep-time essentials to underprivileged babies and children. Find out more and order at pressologyskin.com.
