The following feature appears in the August 2016 issue of NYLON.
Everyone’s favorite hair care brand, Oribe, which became famous in the beauty world thanks to staples like its Dry Texturizing Spray, Après Beach Waves Spray, and Signature Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray, is now expanding its expertise into cosmetics, skin care, and body care categories. To say we’re excited is an understatement. The makeup products include three Lip Lust Crème Lipsticks, formulated with an infusion of white lily and myrrh, in shades dubbed The Red, The Nude, and The Violet, which are packed inside an elegant tube that looks like it belongs on a ‘50s Hollywood starlet’s vanity.
Next are the High Shine Nail Polishes, available in the same three colors as the lipsticks, and bottled inside equally chic vials. Last is the Illuminating Face Palette, a luminous blush, bronzer, and highlighter trio that comes in two shades, Sunlit and Moonlit, and guarantees pearly, glowy skin to those fortunate enough to wear it. Now on to skincare: Highlights include the Daily Ritual Cream Face Cleanser (a gentle wash that removes makeup, dirt, and oil without stripping essential moisture), Night Ceremony Ultra-Rich Cream (a dream cream, literally, that helps repair skin while you snooze), Gold Envy Luminous Face Mask (a gold-infused moisturizing and brightening mask), Radiant Drops Golden Face Oil (made with a rich blend of 13 natural oils that melt into skin to nourish and protect), and finally, the Balmessence Lip Treatment (a silkening balm with camelina oil that hydrates and energizes lips).
Last but certainly not least are the body products: Côte d’Azur Restorative Body Crème and Côte d’Azur Replenishing Body Wash, both scented with the brand’s signature Cote d’Azur fragrance and working in tandem to leave behind smooth skin that smells incredible. We’ve been in beauty heaven since the collection debuted, and can’t wait to see what else the brand has in store for us in the future.
