As outstanding colours need outstanding packaging effects, our revolutionary Slim Plastic Pencil Line MAGNETIC is now available with shiny, matte, pearly and metallic finish.

Promised! With MATTE MAGNIFIQUE, bold lip colour meets lasting comfort. In a single swipe, this pigment-rich lip crayon provides an ultra-matte finish with comfortable wear. Forget the challenge to find the right colour – MAGIC LIPS reveals YOUR personal pink according to your individual skin chemistry. LIP PRIMER is a transparent, plumping base designed to prep the lips for colour and to improve the lastingness of the applied lipstick. Besides, we extend our liquid liner range with 2 new tips: PEEK-A-BOO EYE STYLER draws kitten and cat eyes in deepest black. The new paddle tip with double-flow passage provides an extraordinary saturated, steady line. CANDY BEAD LIP TINT has a bubble shaped tip with cushion feel that provides a soft and saturated line in a heartbeat.

The 6th edition of  MakeUp in New York opened its doors in the heart of the Chelsea Art District and again was a very successful show. More than a hundred exhibitors welcomed over 2,800 visitors (+15 % over previous year) in just 2 days.

With our Autumn Novelties we presented smart solutions that create a fresh, dewy skin with a gorgeous lit-from-within-glow and stunning colours that last the whole day: The trio SUBLIME SKIN takes highlighting to the next dimension and gives the skin the most natural, lovely sheen. The duo highlighter DAZZLING DOUBLE also creates a flattering finish with subtle luminosity. The semi-sheer lipstick RAINBOW PEARLS is the perfect blend for optically fuller and conditioned lips. VELVET BLEND is a pigment-rich lipstick with a velvety, matte finish that doesn’t dry the lips. MAGNETIC is a gel-like formula in pencil-shape that glides on like a dream but lasts the whole day. We presented it in a colourful range that makes eyes and lips light up with an acid pop of colour, bright metallics or cupcake hues.

On the packaging side we showcased the new airtight Slim Plastic Pencil for super long-lasting formulations that can be easily customized from “top to toe”. The new retractable lip crayon Slumbo that unites the precision of a liner with the convenience of a lipstick and the retractable Jumbo Duo which is the perfect packaging for on-the-go.

We were part of the Innovation Tree! For the Innovation Tree, the Jury evaluated 24 products out of 60. Faber-Castell Cosmetics’ Mechanical Pencil with its NEW Micro Bristles was one of the selected. This eye-catching accessory for brows provides an excellent blending in a continuous track.
