Top 4 Autumn Lip Care Tips

----By Kylie Tang----

We feel so cosy in autumn yet it recalls your unpleasant experience on lips – you find them always dry, chapped and painful even though you have put on much lip balm…...These are what you may not know: the thickness of the skin on lips is only 1/3 (!) of that of the other skin on the body, with no oil glands acting as a barrier for it. Its thinness makes it so fragile. You must have experienced hurt and painful lips in autumn before.

Never omit lips protection techniques! You may spend this autumn trying these Do's and Don’ts, and you may have big surprises! 

Do Lip Exfoliation

You would find skincare products work more effectively on impurity-free lips! Never tear off dead and cracked skins directly (you are brave!) and maintain regular lip exfoliation (lips definitely need it). Have a massage at least once a week. A warm towel may help softening your lips, followed by a good scrub. sara happ the lip scrub™ helps eliminating dry and flaky skin. It is enriched with Grape and Jojoba Seed Oil that make your lips feel hydrated. Don’t forget to work cautiously on your fragile lips.

Do Always Prepare A Good Lip Balm

Look for a good lip balm with the right nutrients. In autumn, we need to know these typical names: Coconut oil, Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Beeswax, etc., which help moisturize your lips. Although sunlight may not be so vigorous recently, we need a product with SPF to reinforce protection.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15 is a good choice. It is a super-protective stick with great ingredients like Castor Seed Oil and Vitamin E that treat your lips to eight hour care. With this lip protectant stick, your lips become soft, moisturized and smooth. A SPF 15 basis is also fascinating!

L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm Stick is good enough with Shea Butter and Castor Oil which nourish, repair and protect the lips. It leaves your lips comfortable, supple and soft, at a very beautiful price!

Know the proper way to put on lip balm? Apply it on your lips and press them together for 5 seconds to ensure it absorb completely. Use your lipstick afterwards. Moreover, your lips need a mask at night! Apply a liberal amount on lips. Gently clean with a cotton pad after 15 minutes. Your lips will become supple again!  

Don’t Lick Lips Anymore!

Licking your lips may bring them moisture……for an instant only! You feel that your lips are hydrated after licking them but you shall get rid of this habit from now on. It dehydrates lips and what is even worse is that saliva contains digestive enzymes which will destroy the protective barrier on lips, especially under the dry climate. Better prepare a good balm instead of keeping a bad, lip-licking habit.

Why not keeping a dermatologist-recommended skincare brand lipstick? Say goodbye to painful and dry patches. La Roche-Posay Nutritic Levres Lips is renowned for its long-lasting smoothing effect.

Don’t Get Dehydrated…

Drinking adequate water is good for your body, skin and lips! (At least 8 cups daily). Cups of water bring you changes. Have a try for a week if you haven’t done so before.

You do not need the greatest lip balm but excellent and effective protection techniques! Healthy lips will definitely help you become confident and pretty. Share them with your friends!

Miracles Do Happen

For the ultimate crystal clear skin, you have to do your gem of a self a favour and try SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. This signature product is also called “Miracle Water”, and in this case, the name is justified. The essence is made up of over 90% Pitera™, a wonderful, active ingredient discovered over 30 years ago that gently exfoliates the face and helps moderate the skin’s renewal cycle. Within 14 days, spots are less visible, the appearance of wrinkles is reduced, skin texture is refined, firmness is improved and radiance can compete with the world’s most exquisite gems!

Youthful Angel

In the ruby red container, Afriel & Lofiel Perfect Cream is another product that you just have to try in order to understand what a difference it can make.

Perfect Cream is an all-round age-delaying solution that completely boosts skin rejuvenation and makes skin glow like the two angels of youth and beauty that the cream is named after. Using powerful, natural ingredients you can eliminate wrinkles, coarseness, sagginess, dullness, blemishes and dryness for skin that looks just the opposite i.e. firm, smooth, luminous and blemish-free! 

Clearly Perfectly Clean

And while we have focused on the essential essence and moisturisers you can use to have a brilliant complexion, what about cleansing? We all know just how important that is for clear, beautiful skin. Find yourself another gem with the Estée Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-In-1 Foam Cleanser.

Pearls Of Joy And Wisdom

“A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” - Coco Chanel

Do you want compliments on your radiant, glowing, pearly skin? Do you want to get those compliments without spending a fortune? Well, then, you are in exactly the right place! At COSME-DE.COM we are launching our Gemstone Promotion for October. And to kick things off we are starting with all the products that give your skin a radiant luminosity and a glowing flawlessness. Just like the rare, incandescent, timeless beauty of pearls. Hop on board girls for the PEARL Promotion from 3 – 13 October 2016. A beautiful skin is priceless!

Pearly Skin Starts with….

Start with Albion Essential Skin Conditioner, perfect for gently regulating problematic skin, calming redness and breakouts, smoothing any roughness and improving skin metabolism. This wonder product can be used daily as a toner after cleansing and as a lovely, refreshing and moisturizing mask when left on skin for 3-5 minutes. In no time at all your skin will have all the beautifying and whitening benefits of this truly special product.


For that pearlescent, moisturized look to your skin, try Sisley Ecological Compound Day & Night Cream. For all skin types, this gorgeous cream revitalizes, moisturizes and balances skin with a synergistic complex of natural plant extracts including ginseng, hops and horsetail. The extracts are selected for their stimulating and revitalizing action, meaning you will glow from within like the ocean’s most beautiful pearls. What’s more, you only need the one product to serve as a day and a night cream. There’s value for you!

Peptides For Pearly Skin Qualities 

One of the most important skin discoveries in recent years has been the effectiveness of various peptides in our skin products. The presence of peptides signals to your skin that it needs to create more collagen. Peptides can be applied topically to skin to create the collagen-producing messaging. In so doing, the peptides assist in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and creating a more youthful-looking appearance. This is why it makes sense to include clever peptides in your anti-aging skin care routine. One of the best ways to do this is to include Cosme Decorte AQ MW Repletion Vitalizing Serum into your bag of radiance products. Full of “skin messaging” peptides, this wonder serum works quickly to address skin issues and bring that gorgeous radiant translucency to your skin.

Pearls and Roses

Who doesn’t love a luxurious face mask treat? Who doesn’t love roses? Exactly, none of us. So a Fresh Rose Face Mask is precisely what you deserve – a soothing gel formula infused with real rose petals and pure rosewater (noted for its toning properties). Added with aloe vera gel, cucumber, algae and green tea extracts, it can give you 10 minutes of face mask bliss. Not to mention hydrated, soft, fragrant skin.

The Treasure Inside…

And to add the finishing touch to your silky, perfect, radiant complexion? Use Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion SPF50+ / PA+++. A beautifully packaged pearl of a “perfecting cushion”, it contains apricot kernel oil and Korean herbal water complex. A few stamps give perfect coverage, without a cakey or opaque look. It’s totally you, just absolutely perfect! You can effectively cover any imperfections and fine lines, while protecting your skin from the sun’s rays. What’s more, your fresh, glowing complexion stays that way, without darkening, for 12 hours!


“Pearls are always appropriate.” Jackie Kennedy

These products, like a string of perfect pearls, will provide you with everything you need to step out with a flawless and beautiful skin. With money in your pocket too! Enjoy beautiful pearl!


Korean Makeup Trends Autumn 2016

We all know that Korean beauty products and trends have taken the skin care world by storm with fresh, natural affordable and innovative skin care products. The focus on fresh, clean, natural and glowing skin is a look we have all been hankering after and the Korean beauty products give us just that.

Skin Care Innovators

Trends in skin care include at-home skin care tools like LED devices, so you can get spa-perfect skin at home. Waterless products are also showing up as a new Korean trend in terms of being more moisturising and also conserving our natural water sources. The baby faced look favoured by Korean beauty is still oh-so-very in. Korean products brought us BB and CC creams, sheet masks, oil cleansers and gel sleeping masks.

Autumn Makeup

But it’s not only in terms of beauty and skin care treatments that the Koreans are leading the pack, it is makeup trends too, so it’s worth checking out a few of these so you, too, can be ahead of the curve this autumn.

Face Fitness

One of the biggest focuses of these trends is face shape and contouring. The “ideal” is an oval face shape with a gentle but defined V shape at the chin. Achieving and promoting this look requires no extra facial fat around the jaw line, and there is actually an innovative mask treatment that helps to lift and firm the shape of your face, promote facial blood circulation and burn up any extra facial fat that you don’t want. The Mask House Diamond Slimming Series Diamond V Fit Mask uses a “slimming band” to refine facial contours and promises to reduce the face by 1cm and increase firmness by 20%. I’ll say yes to that! One box contains 6 treatments and the slimming band. 

Ombre Lips For The Perfect Pout

Now for the makeup to contour and achieve the gorgeous Korean look! Two of the biggest autumn trends are ombre lips and hair shading. Ombre lips make the mouth appear gorgeously full, by applying a darker shade on the inner lips and gradually fading to a lighter shade. To try this trend out with a full pink pout, take two Christian Dior Rouge Dior Baume Natural Lip Treatment Couture Colour lipsticks. I love the combination of 558 Lili on the inner lips, fading out to 128 Star on the outer lips. With this product there is no need to choose between lipcare and makeup – in a single step, lips are revived in colours with a healthy glow and shine, and drenched in a protective nourishing lip treatment. The texture retains an incredibly fine consistency with flawless hold and lips are intensely smoothed, plumped and full. Perfect for this trend! 

Flawless Skin

Cushion foundation is the absolute must have Korean product. Based on traditional Korean royal court skincare formulas, The History of Whoo is revived with modern science to create the most precious aesthetic beauty products. Try the luxurious Gongjinhyang: Seol Radiant White Moisture Cushion Foundation SPF50+ / PA+++, with perfect coverage yet light texture and rich hydration for that smooth, dewy, glowing skin. The formula was developed to contain camomile extracts to brighten up dull skin and correct dark spots. 

Another awesome product to achieve the Korean makeup look is the innovation from SK-II. The Color Clear Beauty Artisan Brush Foundation Set is a cream compact set that provides radiant skin in one swipe while achieving full coverage. The Enamel Radiant Cream Compact features three-coloured swirls, each formulated using different extracts to enhance and care for skin.
The Beige layer contains Pitera™ and Vitamin E to help even out skin tone, the white layer incorporates Radical New Age™ Complex and Glycerin to provide anti-aging and hydrating benefits while the pink layer boasts lavender and gold pearls to enhance skin’s luminosity. Included in the compact is the Artisan Perfecting Brush, engineered with new micro-coverage brush technology, which evenly spreads a light layer of product across the face when applied in circular motions.

When used together, the duo works in harmony to create glowing skin and cover any imperfections including large pores. Who can say no to that? 

So, to keep your skin amazing, your face beautiful and your make up spot on trend it’s viva Korea!
