What's hot at the Riverwalk Cos Bar in Edwards, Colorado? The new Dior foundation (it's just as light as a tinted moisturizer!), By Terry moisturizer, and Lancôme's new Rouge in Love lipstick, says Cos Bar consultant Lacy Markel.
"I love Diorskin Forever, because it's a really, really lightweight foundation yet it covers really well and it's also long-wearing," she says. "It has SPF 25 with a wide spectrum, which is great, especially up here in our elevation. It's my go-to foundation for almost everyone, unless you have really oily skin — we tend to be pretty dry up here."
Tinted moisturizer has become a popular alternative to foundation, especially for women who don't want anything too heavy, and Diorskin Forever covers without giving the impression of being heavy or cakey, Markel says. "Some people think this is just a moisturizer, but I think it's comparable and great for women who want a little more coverage than a tinted moisturizer can offer," she explains.
Speaking of moisturizer, Markel is a huge fan of By Terry's Teint De Rose. "It works for all skin types, and it has a lightweight texture," she says. "I love to prep women's skin with it before applying foundation. It's tinted, so it looks pink and very radiant. Even the oiliest of skin can use this product to give skin that radiant glow. You can even layer it on top of your foundation for a nice finishing touch or go to bed with it and wake up looking refreshed next to someone special."
So what's the latest in lipstick? Markel says Lancôme's new Rouge in Love line is her "favorite lipstick in the store, at a wonderful price point for what they offer." The long-wearing lipstick also moisturizes and comes in trendy summery colors in beautiful berry tones and bright corals.
For a more natural look, Markel likes Fusion Beauty's double-ended LipFusion XL lip gloss. One side is a clear gloss, the other is a lip-plumping treatment. Plus it's on special right now for only $12.99 (down from $50).
The final touch? False eyelashes! Winks faux lashes are new to the Riverwalk store, and Markel is a big fan.
"They're very natural-looking and user-friendly, and the adhesive is botanical-based, which is perfect for the sensitive eye area," she says. "They come in three styles from very natural to full, and you can use them up to six times. They also sell individual lashes in flares for a less dramatic look, if you just kind of want to fill in your lashes." Sounds perfect for summer weddings and parties!
