This will be given to her favorite product, selected and tested from among the ten new skincare products that have been submitted for the competition.

2023 FORMULATION NOMINEES
Ultra-thin, active-ingredient essence jelly that glides and melts smoothly over the skin, and is used like a sticker.
A 2-in-1 foundation to be used as a low-coverage BB cream, or mixed with water as a higher-coverage fluid foundation. It introduces the concept of “wet&dry” to anhydrous formulations, thanks to the presence of specific water-activated raw ingredients.
An illuminating skincare base composed of a compact powder moistened with a serum that releases on application. Based on an antioxidant and soothing complex, this serum reduces redness and irritation while evening out skin tone and protecting skin from environmental aggressors.
Playful, it combines a fine natural sand scrub that deeply cleanses the skin with a gentle whipped texture that soothes and refreshes. Its water-free formula is enriched with cocoa butter, jojoba and watermelon seed oils and yuzu extract.
Obtained using a cold formulation process, this tinted emulsion is very light and sensorial. Thanks to an innovative gelling agent capable of encapsulating a large quantity of water, its mousse-gel texture is fresh and moisturizing, while providing even coverage.
Its lightweight formula is highly resistant to transfer. It forms a soft, comfortable film on the lips. Its smooth texture, obtained from a patented component, is easy to apply without shaking and offers a high-gloss effect.
Minimalist, ideal for travel, it cleanses, brightens, refreshes and firms the skin in just minutes. Formulated with jasmine-scented Thai rice.
A creamy, anhydrous formula that’s easy to work with and transforms into a luminous, powdery veil as soon as it’s applied to the face or body. Its cream-powder-shimmer effect is based on innovative casting and pressing technologies and a sublimating elastomer.
A primer with an astonishing ultra-light, water-based formula that creates a new sensoriality between gel and mousse. It acts as both a skincare milk that nourishes the skin with almond and a foundation that prolongs makeup wear.
2023 FULL SERVICE NOMINEES
A primer with a soft, foamy texture, available in three versions – green, yellow and pink – containing a different active ingredient to either illuminate, mattify or moisturize the skin. The richness of its formula, containing 96% ingredients of natural origin, remains after rinsing with water.
With a texture halfway between that of a matte lipstick and a powder, it adheres perfectly to the lips and is water-resistant. It dresses lips in a beautiful tattoo-like matte veil, yet is creamy and melting from the moment it’s applied.
Inspired by the environment of the planet Mars, this powder face mask is based on kaolin. Its formula, enriched with special active ingredients with anti-oxidant properties, transforms with a small amount of water into a light, fluid, slippery texture whose sensoriality sets it apart from conventional clay masks.
Gently and effectively exfoliates face and body. Contained in a biodegradable tube, its water- and preservative-free formula contains a naturally-derived oil gelling agent and recycled natural lemon peel powder.
