Summer smoothness

Lancome's new Maquiliquide UV Perfect Forever Liquid Foundation (HK$280) and Maquicake UV Forever (HK$250) have extreme long-wear 'Perfect Shine Catchers' technology. It claims to work all day to 'catch' and absorb four times more sweat and sebum to keep skin matte for up to 12 hours. Double-coated optical pigments ensure naturally radiant colour and translucency for Asian skins. The liquid texture is said to glide onto skin easily. The high UV protection is suited to the Spring /Summer season. Available at all Lancome beauty counters.

Home spa

Bliss's Steep Clean Self-heating Body Polish (HK$360) is an effective do-it-yourself body treatment. It is a two-in-one enzymatic exfoliator and skin brightening mask. It contains a compound with pineapple enzymes that heats and smoothes skin. Not only does it promise to rid your body of unwanted bumps and spots, it also serves as a pre-tanning body exfoliator. Available at Lane Crawford at Times Square and Pacific Place from May 3.
