Finally, a makeup line that caters to women over 50! L’Oréal Paris has long been creating innovative beauty products for women of all ages, but its latest makeup collection is all about mature women. L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup is a full line of face, eye and lip products that tackles the specific needs of women over the age of 50, empowering them to feel beautiful, included and like they have products that put their needs first. Want to learn more? You’re in the right place. This guide breaks down all the cutting-edge products and formulas the line has to offer, starting with foundations and ending with lips.
Finding the right foundation for more mature skin can be a challenge. Formulas are often too heavy and cake on the skin or, even worse, they settle into fine lines and wrinkles. A perfect pairing with L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect skincare, this new foundation combines the best of skincare with makeup. Each tube is designed for both mature and sensitive skin and contains a hydrating serum and vitamin B3 to nourish and moisturize in a weightless, long-wearing formula. Available in 21 shades, the foundation became an instant favourite when it hit beauty aisles.
This concealer does it all, including covering up darkness and blemishes. Just like the name says, it imparts a radiant finish, making it ideal to use on dark circles to help brighten up tired eyes. The hydrating, non-sticky texture blurs imperfections without settling into fine lines. (Hooray!) Choose from 12 shades to get the perfect match for your skin.
Who knew that a powder could be hydrating? But that’s just what this compact does. It’s a non-drying powder that won’t leave skin looking parched and won’t settle into lines or highlight skin texture. Formulated with gentle minerals and antioxidants to blur pores, lines and spots, this powder works well on its own or layers seamlessly with a liquid foundation or concealer.
Infused with camellia oil, this soft, sheer blush adds just the right amount of pigment to cheeks. Available in four ultra-flattering colours, each shade is buildable so you can do a hint of tint or a more flushed look, depending on what you’re after. It’s a cinch to blend, so you can apply the rich formula using your fingers or a blush brush. Powder blushes often leave skin looking dry or highlight imperfections, but this hydrating creamy formula sets for a long-wearing finish.
As we get older, eyelashes can become weakened and brittle, so a nourishing and hydrating mascara is a must. This formula—available in black and brown—is specially designed for fragile mature lashes and won’t leave them weighed down or clumpy. This lightweight mascara adds volume and definition from root to tip thanks to a rich formula that contains a conditioning serum and jojoba oil.
Packed with soft-focus mineral pigments, this roll-up eyeliner pencil glides on and stays put. One swipe is enough to open your eyes and add just the right amount of definition without looking heavy. Apply it straight from the tube for a soft lash line or smudge it with an eyeshadow brush for a more smoky, sultry look.
A stellar brow pencil is an essential in any makeup bag. Brows can become thinner and lighter in colour as we age, so adding some definition can help to frame the face and draw attention to your eyes. Containing natural waxes and soft powder pigments, this pencil won’t leave any harsh lines behind and makes for a foolproof application. Choose from Dark Blonde, Soft Brown or Deep Brown to find your perfect shade match.
When it comes to lipsticks, you can never have too many. With its creamy finish and hydrating core enriched with pro-vitamin B5, this formula is addictive as it leaves your lips seriously hydrated and soft. Choose from 10 luminous shades and swipe it on for a creamy finish that won’t feather.
If you’re looking for a lipstick that packs a bit more of a pigment punch, this one is for you! Formulated with precious oils and rich pigments, this lipstick provides saturated colour in a hydrating formula that won’t feather or bleed. Take your pick from 10 shades of neutral everyday colours to more dramatic hues like pinks and reds.
Using a lip liner will step up your lipstick game for a more long-wearing, precise pout. Smudge and transfer-resistant, this lip liner has a soft tip that ensures an expert application every time, without having to tug and pull at your lips. You can use it like a traditional lip liner to line the outer edge of your pout to prevent feathering or fill in your lips and layer a lipstick overtop for a long-wearing finish.
