Acne-Safe Tinted Mineral SPF40 is here!!!

We are so excited to announce the launch of our new acne-safe tinted mineral SPF40!

It’s a 100% acne-safe physical sunblock that contains both Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which provides broad spectrum coverage from both harmful UVA and UVB rays.

This silky-smooth lightweight tinted SPF40 also doubles as a primer to help reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and fine lines/wrinkles.

It’s also Water Resistant up to 80 minutes!

This product comes in one universal shade that is appropriate for most skin tones. If desired, you can mix a little of this product with your regular SPF to ‘lighten’ the tint.

Using a separate primer is NOT necessary after using this product since it already has a primer built into it.  So, if you have our acne-safe primer, you don’t need to use that on the days you choose to wear the acne-safe tinted mineral SPF40.

This is the PERFECT product to use when you don’t want to be bothered putting on foundation but you still want a “finished” look!

How to use: Dispense a nickle-sized amount of our acne-safe tinted mineral SPF40 into your hands and apply evenly all over the face. Be sure to blend well. You can apply our foundations over top and/or just our HydraPrime or BEHAVE Finishing Powder to complete your look. *Thoroughly wash hands after application as this product may stain some fabrics.

Both full-size ($44) and sample sizes ($3.50) are available. We encourage all customers to purchase sample sizes BEFORE committing to full-size products.  Get yours today at PRIIA.com!

PRIIA Cosmetics Launches New Colors for Spring/Summer 2013!

The warm weather is here and summer itself is just around the corner.  With that said, the trend for makeup is to "dare to bare" but still look polished.  Colors for this season are softer and have a more subtle approach as opposed to the daring and deep hues we find during the fall and winter months.

I'm please to announce a new collection of gorgeous colors by PRIIA Cosmetics.  They're perfect for this time of year when you still want to wear makeup but don't want to look overly "made-up".

Cherry-blossom-new (2)

 

Here's the latest blush color.  It's called Cherry Blossom.  It will add a perfect pop of whimsical pink to the apples of your cheeks!

 

Sunlit-sand-new (3)
Peridot-new (2)

Shown Above, we have two new satin shadows: Sunlit Sand & Peridot

 

Shown below are our latest matte eye shadows: Seashell and Linen.

Seashell-new
Linen-new

And last, but certainly not least, our two new lip gloss colors: Apricot Sateen and Rose Sateen.

Apricot-sateen-new200
Rose-sateen-new200

So there you have it!  An array of beautiful, soft and feminine hues.  Take these colors for a test drive today.  Head on over to www.priia.com and pick up some samples.  You'll love the myriad of different looks you can create!  Let your inner makeup artist OUT.

Cheers!

PRIIA Cosmetics Re-Releases Two Favorite Products!

Today PRIIA Cosmetics released 2 of its best-selling products with updated formulations:  HydraPrime Oil-Control Powder and Creamy Under Eye Concealer!

Here's why I'm so excited about these updated formulas…

Green TeaHydraPrime has been reformulated and now contains Japanese Green Tea Leaf Extract.  The potent antioxidant and anti-aging properties of Green Tea are a perfect addition to this fabulous face powder.  Also, HydraPrime is nearly 100% translucent now, so even deep skin tones can wear this product without worrying about looking 'ashen'.  It still has the same amazing oil-control properties that clients have come to love but now it simply has more beneficial ingredients for your overall complexion.  It can be worn as a primer AND a finishing powder.  It also works wonders for those who have problems with their eye shadows creasing. Simply apply your foundation onto your lids, then apply a small amount of HydraPrime on top and you've got a perfect 'canvas' for layering your favorite shadows and keeping them in place all day (or night) long!  If you're an oily-skinned gal (like me), give HydraPrime a try.  Your skin will thank you!

Next, our best-selling Creamy Under Eye Concealer has been reformulated to contain not
Cucumber woman one, but TWO amazing extracts: Cucumber Extract and Licorice Root Extract!  Cucumber extract is well-known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties and Licorice Root works on lightening and brightening while also decongesting dilated capillaries.  Both of these wonderful extracts work synergistically to aid in healing and to help keep the skin even-toned and soothed.  Our Under Eye Concealer has been a best-seller ever since we launched it in March 2009.  We make and sell so much of this product, I have
Licorice rootsometimes wondered if women are eating this stuff! (please don't eat it- it's made for external use only). 😉

So, if you've got oily skin or dark under eye circles or both (like me…again) – now you have to 2 products to add to your makeup arsenal.  You can find them at www.priia.com .  Oh, FYI- both of these products are 100% Gluten Free!

 

 

Cheers!

Are YOU Fun & Flirty?

Group1 For Spring/Summer 2011, PRIIA Cosmetics launched new products that were called the "Fun and Flirty" collection.  New products include: Creme mineral foundation, two new lippie colors (Twisted Papaya & Vixen Violet) five new mineral satin shadow shades and a new blush color, Primrose.

The response to the new collection has been fabulous!  Here's what one of our latest customers had to say about our new creme mineral foundation:

"It has such a great silky texture, it is very lightweight, but gives a good coverage. Considering my skin condition, I'd say medium to full coverage. For others that don't have a problematic skin, or blemishes it would be a full coverage! It blends perfectly and absolutely matches my skin tone. Cream foundations are especially good for those with dry skin, but I believe this one would be good for any skin type. I just applied a very thin layer of powder foundation and magic is done! I look like I just had a good 7 hour night's sleep. It's all so well blended, totally natural looking and feeling. Yes, it feels fabulous!!! Kelley, you have done an AMAZING job. Thank you! I've looked for you all my live and I'm so happy I found you!" – Stefi Petkova, MN
If you haven't tried our latest collection, hop on over to www.priia.com and get your hands on some FREE samples (yes, I said FREE).  We're pretty sure you're going to love us. 😉♥

Formulation Frustration!!!

A few days ago I created a beautiful JADE color matte eyeshadow.  I worked really hard on this particular shade; it was difficult to get it just right.  It was late at night when I formulated this color and I wrote down the ingredients on a scratch piece of paper (Post It note).  The following day I cleaned up the previous evening’s experiments, disinfected my lab area and went on about my day.

Last night I decided to log my matte shadow formulas into my laptop.  Well, when I went to look for the JADE shadow formula it was gone!  My stomach sank.  Where could I have put it???  I began to retrace my steps…  My stomach sank further- I THREW OUT the Jade shadow formula!!!  Angry_woman Tons of emotions ran through my head and then I remembered the garbage hadn’t been picked up yet.  Do you know what I did next?  Yup, I put on my gloves, a mask and an old t-shirt and into the garbage dumpster I climbed!  Ick! 

Bag by bag I sifted through coffee grinds, orange peels, green pieces of I-don’t-know-what and things that smelled like old gym socks.  Oh how gross!  And then…could it be?..  Yes! I found that little piece of scratch paper with the Jade matte shadow formula!  EUREKA!  I proceeded to remove the cement-like clumps of scrambled eggs that were stuck to this invaluable piece of paper, climbed out of the dumpster and whispered a little prayer that I wouldn’t come down with a staph infection after this fiasco.

Jade_shadow After taking a loooong hot shower, I immediately logged the Jade shadow formula into my laptop and decided to call it a night.  So what did I learn from this debacle?  WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN IN MY FORMULATING NOTEBOOK!  Post It notes are no longer allowed anywhere near my formulating studio!

Cheers!
