If you followed all the previous episodes you know that I & rsquo; have worked for 1 year 1/2 in the & rsquo; Oreal, luxury products division at. All this time, j & rsquo; have held various positions (VRP, trop bien…, then Designer ouf !) within the brand Helena Rubinstein.

And this brand, c & rsquo; has become my favorite brand makeup. Not that I & rsquo; have suffered brainwashing and skull jams, but because I & rsquo; have had & rsquo; opportunity to test a lot of products in the & rsquo; Oreal, of all luxury brands (Lancôme, Armani, Biotherm, etc…) and those who still inhabit my bookshelves are those in HR. For a long j & rsquo; & rsquo have refused; make the & rsquo; apology here, to avoid it out for a post pub for the brand for which I worked, but now the problem since I work elsewhere (ah want, I no longer works for either modepass, I'll talk soon).

I do not know if you know a little l & rsquo; history of this brand, but it is quite exciting.

Ms. Rubinstein was the first to commercialize care creams that & rsquo; it manufactured in the kitchen and in the & rsquo; back room of the pharmacy where she worked in Australia. She had a very beautiful skin despite the sun, and had the & rsquo; idea of ​​selling his care to all those who asked her beauty secret.

Then she opens a shop in Melbourne, several in England, a Paris rue Saint Honoré, in the US and several, thus recovering quickly at the head of & rsquo; a big deal, One of the first major brands of cosmetics (face à Elisabeth Arden et Estee Lauder).

It is the & rsquo; & rsquo origin; many d & rsquo; innovations in skincare and makeup : she invented the first “tube” mascara and version “waterproof” (before he appeared in a small pot in which spat…) which is d & rsquo; moreover always marketed by brand, a real little gem vintage (the “long lash”).

It also introduces the first self-tanner, the first moisturizing and is the first to advance the concept of “skin type”.

And, surtout, she had the & rsquo; intelligence to think that beauty, it is deserved and that & rsquo; he had to eat healthy (which was a fairly new idea in & rsquo; time). She was organizing “beauty class” where she taught women how to take care of & rsquo; and they liked to say : “it n & rsquo; there are no ugly women, it n & rsquo; is as lazy women”.

She has lived all over the world, known and rubbed the greatest artists of his time as Picasso and c & rsquo; was a real woman & rsquo; affair. A legend even says that & rsquo; she had just sold his business before the crisis 29 for then buy for a pittance.

J & rsquo; loved all those little stories that make this brand a legend. Malheureusement, like the world of cosmetics n & rsquo; is that “marketing” aujourd’hui, c & rsquo; is a brand that not suffer badly in France and that few people under 40 years finally know. For those so inclined, HR products here that I & rsquo; uses absolutely EVERY day and I could not live without :


– Le mascara Lash queen : j & rsquo;'ve tested many mascaras, but this one is by far the best, it thickens, lengthens and curls the lashes like no other.

– The Makeup color clone : it unifies without “masque” with an ultra-natural finish, I just finally let go of my bare minerals for him.

– The foundation Spectacular : when I go in the evening, or when I want my makeup absolutely takes all day until late evening. It makes a super bright and natural complexion.

– Le collagenist lip zoom : made all soft lips, Gently plumped without stinging, to effect a “bitten lips” with a red, c & rsquo; is perfection.

– La crème de soin skin life repair : j & rsquo; have dry skin, who shoots and kills me l & rsquo; winter… this care without perfume (Finally, if, it smells a little baby) for very dry skin lifesaver.

I'll spare you the rest, that I & rsquo; also uses (the Reds, gloss, crayons, eyeshadows, etc…) they are tops, but the 4 products above are to me real must-have !
