The skin care company Murad (www.murad.com) is known for treating skin complaints at the cellular level. The company’s founder, Dr. Murad, believes in the healing properties of water, and the importance of hydrating both inside and out.
Now, it looks like Murad is venturing into the world of makeup.
A lovely journalist was given an introductory package, and she in turn paid it forward to me. She figured, with my makeup background, I could make heads and tails of it. Here’s what I got:
Inside, there was a ‘double’ surprise. On the top, there was the new makeup line…
And on the bottom, was a complete ‘anti aging’ skin care line!
I dug into the makeup portion of the package, anxious to see what the chemists at Murad had come up with:
This concealer is simply called ‘dark’. Boy, is it ever! It’s supposed to be a concealer and a blemish treatment in one. I can’t use it on myself, but I can certainly use it on my warmer toned clients. I love the idea of a concealer doubling as a treatment.
This is probably my favorite part of the collection. The skin perfecting primer behaves like the ever popular ‘Beauty Balms’ – without the whitening agent. I was first worried because the color was so fair…
But the primer blended out beautifully on my medium toned skin, and disappeared!
Next, I tried the bronzing boost. It’s hailed as a tinted moisturizer with an SPF of 15 and ingredients that promise to firm and help keep skin healthy.
I love the idea of makeup doubling as skin care… you guys know that. I’m really interested in trying the primer. I’ll road test everything and report back. Ciao for now!
