When a celebrity makeup artist who is one of the most trusted names in the industry launches his own makeup line, you just know that it is going to be a good one. The AJ Crimson cosmetic line is one of the few which is dedicated to women of colour. Needless to say, it has been met with rave reviews and an immense fan following of celebrities, makeup artists and glamdolls like you. Is it any wonder that he counts starlets like Estelle, Fergie, Keyshia Cole, Brandy and Missy Elliot amongst his loyalists?
This range of beauty products is all about enhancing your best features by getting the base of your look right. Everyone loves a product which offers complete coverage without feeling too heavy on the skin, and the AJ Crimson crème foundation fits the bill perfectly. The best part is that it comes in a massive variety of shades (there are eight shades just for medium to dark skin) so you are bound to find the perfect match for your skin tone. No more mixing foundations and unnecessary spillage, ladies! Given its creamy texture, the foundation sets in a dewy finish, which hits the sweet spot between the typical matte and shiny finishes that are oh-so-popular nowadays. If you still prefer a matte look, you can tone it down with a dab of setting powder once you have finished contouring. The cute pro-pan packaging doesn’t hurt, either! Trust me when I tell you that you will wonder how you ever did without.
Psst…did you know that BB creams are actually short for blemish creams? If you are looking for lighter coverage, then the AJ Crimson BB+D cream is just the product you need. It flawlessly evens out your skin tone and makes it visibly brighter with the built in benefit of skincare and protection from the sun. Ingredients like shea butter, avocado oil, mango butter and jojoba oil provide the moisture your skin needs to stay fresh and hydrated all day long sans the greasiness which comes with many poor quality products. The cream is also loaded with soothing ingredients like aloe vera gel and glycerine which have a cooling effect, making this ideal for ladies who shy away from heavy products because of their sensitive skin and frequent breakouts. What’s not to love? With eleven shades to choose from and a slick texture which makes for easy application, I guarantee that this product will quickly become a handbag essential.
Complete the look by setting your makeup in place with his Universal Finishing Powder and you are ready to take the world by a storm!
