I may not say this often, but I’m thrilled for the local beauty scene. Local brands have been killing it with their product releases and one of the better ones out there has got to be Celeteque Dermocosmetics. Admittedly, Celeteque isn’t for everyone–it’s not your typical drugstore cosmetic line but it is a brand you should definitely look out for if you’re ready to be rethink and be mindful of your makeup routine; if you’d have enough of playing and experimenting with fun, trendy makeup. For one, Celeteque focuses more on skincare benefits, using ingredients that nourish and repair, prevent and maintain. I wouldn’t dare say it’s for the mature market too, coz hey, you’re never too young for skin care! But don’t fret, you don’t have to be purist about it as you can incorporate their products in your current routine. They are equally well-made and on-trend as the products your are using right now, I promise!
I have written about Celeteque here and here, and at the end of last year, I received a whole new batch of products from them! I’m really excited to share them with you as these are great, innovative products and like I said, easy to incorporate in your routine.
SKIN. The Céleteque DermoCosmetics 24-hr Photoready Matte Primer (P825) helps your makeup look flawless for longer, thanks to its silky, weightless formula that minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines and reduces shine for a smooth, flawless look. Four components help this happen: Polymethyl Methacrylate to minimize pores, fine lines, and wrinkles; Silica for oil control and to give your skin a silky-soft and matte look and feel; and Dimethicone and Dimethicone Crosspolymer, which work together to form a protective barrier on the skin and helps your makeup last longer. Also in photo, the Céleteque DermoCosmetics Cleansing Oil and Hydrolized Moisturising Mist.
BASE. The Céleteque DermoCosmetics CC Micro-Hydrating Powder (P930) comes in light porcelain, classic natural, and deep beige shades. It hydrates your skin while controlling oil and shine and has SPF 30 to provide double sunscreen protection—a must-have in climates like ours! The pot containing the powder features an autogrinding technology that gives you an ultrafine and hydrating powder that evens out your skin complexion and is easy to blend. With a few twists, it provides just the right amount of product you need. It contains Hyarluronic Acid to replenish the skin and help it retain moisture, Silica to reduce excess oil and give your skin a silky-soft finish, and Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) to hydrate and nourish the skin even further.
Say goodbye to raccoon eyes with Céleteque DermoCosmetics’ 2-in-1 Eyebag Miracle Kit (P745), which is a two-component solution to the dark circles under your eyes that may be caused by poor sleep, allergies, hormone levels, or even the food you eat or the genes you’re born with. The kit contains an Eye Balm to reduce puffiness under the eye and an Eye Foundation in light, natural, and beige shades to cover and lighten your eyebags. Ingredients include the trademarked Cytobiol Lumin-eye to reduce puffiness and under-eye bags; Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) to nourish, hydrate, and firm up the skin, minimizing lines under the eyes; and antioxidants like Ubiquinone, Squalane, and Ginkgo Biloba leaf extract, all of which help prevent further skin damage.
EYES. Get those peepers to pop with the easy-to-blend lightweight Primer and naturally toned eyeshadow found in the Céleteque DermoCosmetics Long-Wear Eyeshadow Palette (P725). The product contains Shea butter, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), and Evening Primrose Oil, all of which help keep your lids moisturized and smooth and make the elements easy to blend.
BROWS. The Céleteque DermoCosmetics Eyebrow Defining Kit is a 2-in-1 formulation of Tinted Wax and color-complementing Eyebrow Powder containing Shea Butter and Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) to moisturize and smoothen your brow area, as well as Argan Kernel Oil to ease the blending process. The overall effect is easy-to-achieve definition for your brows.
LIPS. If you’re on the go and need a one-stop-shop solution to add some bloom to your look, you may just find the Céleteque DermoCosmetics Moisturizing Lip & Cheek Duo (P665), available in Rosy Blush and Soft Berry, is a lifesaver. This oil-free and streak-free mousse contains Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), which acts as an antioxidant that protects your lips and cheeks from free radicals that lead to dryness, as well as Sodium Hyaluronate and Glycerin, which help your skin retain moisture better, making it firmer, softer, and smoother for a more youthful appearance.
For an extra-kissable pout, you’ll definitely want to carry around the Céleteque DermoCosmetics Ultra-Nourishing Lip Lacquer (P545), which is lightweight, smooth, and non-greasy and comes in three shades: Natural Nude, Soft Pink, and Velvet Red. This gel-based lip moisturizer will keep your lips soft and supple all day, thanks to a formulation that includes the hydrating and moisturizing Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), castor seed oil, and Panthenol, all of which contribute to softer, smoother lips.
I got so inspired with the products I decided to do a one-brand-face/one-brand-makeup using some of the new and some of my old Celeteque products!
I started off with the 24-Hr Photoready Matte Primer, followed by the 24-Hr Photoready Foundation and 2-in-1 Eyebag Miracle Kit, followed promptly by the primer on the Long-Wear Eyeshadow Palette in Warm Brown. You have to allot some time for these primers and to set and Celeteque seem quite keen on them primers–the eye cream and eyeshadows both include a balmy base that prepare the skin for the next product. Next I did my brows using Eyebrow Defining Kit in Dark Brown. I must admit I had a hard time using the wax on my brows as I prefer the accuracy of pencils for shaping. But these are great for newbies coz it’s hard to over-draw with these, and the effect will be likely be natural.
For the eyes, I used the matte warm, orangey brown all over my lids as a base. I love this color SO much! It’s so on-trend! Next I used the dark brown shade to define the lash line and. The lightest color goes on my brow bone. This palette is a fast favourite of mine, I love how modern and trendy the colors and finishes are!
For the cheeks, I used a bit of the Moisturizing Lip & Cheek Duo in Rosy Blush on my cheeks followed by the powder blush on the Blush & Face Contour Kit. I also used the contour and highlight powders to define my nose, cheeks and jawline. Lastly, I used Rosy Blush on my lips and applied a slick of Ultra-Nourishing Lip Lacquer in Natural Nude on my lips. To set everything together, I spritzed on the Hydrolized Moisturising Mist.
I hope you guys like this look! Have you tried the Céleteque DermoCosmetics range? Any favourites so far? xx
