|Rare Beauty, the mission-driven beauty brand founded and created by Selena Gomez, is coming to Hong Kong, exclusively at Sephora. Rare Beauty uses unique formulas to create breathable and airy makeup that go on easy for adjustable coverage and a fresh finish, without hiding what makes people unique. The full line of thoughtfully formulated, thoroughly tested products includes 14 categories and 133 products that will be available on 15th July at Sephora Hong Kong ifc mall flagship store, Windsor House store, K11 Art Mall store and Sephora.hk.|
|Selena’s passion for beauty products was born at a young age, from the moment she sat in her first makeup chair. Over the last three years, she channeled that love into the development of Rare Beauty. She wanted to create a beauty brand that goes beyond physical products, helps people feel good about themselves, and celebrates what makes them unique. Selena openly discusses the “beauty myth” and the unrealistic expectations set by society that are impossible to achieve. She created Rare Beauty to challenge the beauty myth of physical perfection. Rare Beauty is about using makeup as a tool for celebrating what makes people different and get to a place of self-love and acceptance. It’s about owning what makes you rare.|
|“I’m so excited to release beauty products that not only feel great, but also celebrate what makes each of us rare,” said Selena Gomez, Founder and Creator of Rare Beauty. “These products aren’t about being someone else, it’s about being who you are, whether that’s rocking a full face of bold makeup or barely any makeup at all. Makeup is something to enjoy, it’s not something you need. I want every person to feel beautiful exactly as they are.”|
|Rare Beauty products are designed for everyday self-expression, and each product has a unique sensorial story. Since the brand’s inception, Selena has been involved in every step of product development. Whether it’s testing each product or developing a design for the first-of-its-kind Blot & Glow Touch-Up Kit that’s convenient to carry, Selena has influenced every aspect. Rare Beauty’s Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner is inspired by a calligrapher and is comprised of more than 1000 individual hairs. The complexion products include the Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer, Always an Optimist 4-in-1 Mist, and theLiquid Touch Weightless Foundation & Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer, which are each available in 32 shades to suit all skin tones.
|The brand is also releasing With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm in eight shades, Lip Souffle Matte Lip cream in 12 shades, Positive Light Liquid Luminizer in eight shades, Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in eight shades (four dewy and four matte), Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush in five shades, Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm in five shades, Stay Vulnerable Liquid Eyeshadow in five shades, Brow Harmony Pencil & Gel, and three tools.

Diptyque marks the third key moment in this anniversary year with a tribute to nature, dedicating its entire summer collection to this inexhaustible source of inspiration for the Maison.
A nature that is simple and authentic and opens onto the sea: the nature of the Mediterranean landscapes where Yves Coueslant and Desmond Knox-Leet, two members of the trio who founded diptyque, loved to recharge their batteries and from which, from 1960 onwards, they brought back materials and memories aplenty for use in the creations and perfumes to come. Summer 2021 sees the emblematic Mediterranean scents highlighted as olfactory reminiscences of the landscapes of Italy, Provence and Greece that the two friends so valued for their unadorned beauty. In the Mediterranean, they found their “landscape of the soul” – the place where they felt most fully themselves.
This is also a location that the young English artist and illustrator Luke Edward Hall, who has been invited to create drawings visualising the world of the summer collection, loves to visit: the Greek island of Hydra, the Riviera, the Amalfi Coast are among his favourite holiday destinations. It was inevitable that he would one day collaborate with diptyque, for any number of reasons. Traits marking him out as a natural choice include his love of colour, shared by the Maison since its early days and its very first fabric collections, plus the elements of neoclassical and naïve art in his work, which are very much in line with those used by Desmond Knox-Leet and with diptyque’s celebration of the simple, essential qualities of nature.
One summer in the Mediterranean: viewed via the artist’s perspective and imagination, the inspiration for this limited edition collection takes on the form of a celebration, sensitive and poetic. In his own modern, joyful manner, he rekindles the beauty of the light and of the natural world of the Mediterranean. Keeping faith with his own style, he depicts the region’s colours radiating freely, embracing with a spirited gesture the essence of the Mediterranean setting – the sea, the sun, the native flora. He gets through to the essential, just like the collection itself – an amalgam of objects combining beauty, simplicity and utility, reproducing as closely as possible the scents of that sun-drenched soil.
The sun lies at the very heart of Ilio, the eau de toilette in the summer 2021 collection, also available as a hair mist. Taking its name from ilios (the Greek word for “sun”), Ilio is a concentrate of summer itself, captured in a bottle – a breath of warm air cut across with addictive fragrances from flowers and fruit trees. Characterised by prickly pear – an emblematic, unconventional fruit from the Mediterranean basin – Ilio will both brighten and freshen up the summer, adding notes that blend bergamot, iris and jasmine.
Celebrating lemongrass – another characteristic summer scent, known and valued for its tangy coolness and its mosquito-repellent properties – two new limited edition scented candles enrich this solar collection: a candle in the classic 190 g format and its large-format cousin, both decorated with generous yet simple illustrations courtesy of Luke Edward Hall. Enhanced with green, floral touches, this candle will be the ideal accompaniment to summer evenings spent al fresco after night has fallen.
Another first: to commemorate this anniversary summer, diptyque has specially developed an eau that takes as its base essential oils of lemongrass, geranium and lemon eucalyptus, all known for their ability to repel mosquitos.
This product is a completely new innovation in the field of perfumery. It also symbolises the spirit of the Maison – both functional and beautiful, combining the useful with the enjoyable. Softened with floral notes and a closing touch of musk this summer body spray is sure to become the indispensable item of the season.
Bringing this Mediterranean-inflected collection to a majestic conclusion, diptyque reinvents its famous Vinaigre de toilette, one of the Maison’s first products, in a new olfactory creation crafted exclusively to mark the occasion. A Mediterranean edition with a typically aromatic perfume, inspired by the traditional recipes of the region with its infusion of lavender, rosemary and thyme as highlighted by the lavender sprig inserted specially into each bottle. A product you can use unstintingly for perfuming clothes, helping the body unwind, beautifying the hair and cleansing your home.
Essential items for summer 2021: a complete collection of objects and perfumes dedicated to the inspiration supplied by nature and conceived to rekindle completely, stimulating all your senses, the experience and memory of a summer spent by the Mediterranean sea. Ideal and indispensable, just like the natural Mediterranean world it celebrates.

|For those of us who suffer from reactive skin, we know all too well NOT to be experimental with new skincare products. When a simple bar of soap or washing detergent – indeed any product loaded with fragrance and other irritants – can trigger inflammation, rashes or itchiness, we have learnt to settle for safer, less exciting skincare (bye bye acids!). Until, that is, Tata Harper came along. Inspired to give people with reactive skin the powerful results they’ve been missing out on by developing gentle formulas their skin can tolerate, Tata Harper has managed to solve this paradox after one year of research and two years of formulation. Now, with the launch of her latest skincare collection, Superkind, it’s safe to say that skincare for reactive skin will never be boring again.|
|Powerful yet gentle
While you may have inherited sensitive skin or just developed sensitised skin over time, reactivity is the sign of a weakened skin barrier. And because a strong, functioning skin barrier is meant to protect against stressors, irritants and other allergens passing through the skin, a weak barrier essentially leaves your skin defenseless. Tata Harper knows that reactive skin is complex, and that’s why she believes the best solutions for it should be too. After a year of research, Tata Harper discovered 36 new ingredients from 13 different countries – all meticulously selected for reactive skin, and developed stress-free formulas that exclude a comprehensive catalog of 85+ common irritants and allergens that can trigger reactive skin and further compromise a weak skin barrier.

Ole Henriksen Launches into Sephora Hong Kong
Transform your skin and glow brighter with clean, potent skincare
Please find here the press kit with hi-res images and attached press release with more details.
OLEHENRIKSEN, the internationally renowned Danish skincare brand, is bringing the #OleGlow to Hong Kong! Starting from 13th May 2021 OLEHENRIKSEN’s daily skincare and spa-inspired systems, including Banana Bright Eye Crème, the cult-favorite and #1 eye cream at Sephora North America, will be available in Hong Kong exclusively at Sephora in-store and online.
A HAPPY FACE IS A BEAUTIFUL FACE: MEET OLE
For Ole Henriksen, great skin begins with a positive outlook—an effervescent optimism and zest for life that allows you to glow from the inside out. Ole’s Scandinavian heritage and joy for life led him to design a simple, joyful, yet powerful approach to skincare—an approach that empowers everyone to be their own best skincare expert. Founded In 1975, the line reflects Ole’s Scandinavian sensibilities of health and happiness as the path to brilliant skin.
Ole Henriksen’s skincare journey began with his own struggle with cystic acne. After learning firsthand what works (and what doesn’t), he brought his expertise and signature Ole Glow to Hollywood, where he opened his own spa. Now, with more than 30 years of experience and founder of a global bestselling brand, he’s seen and understands what truly works. But Ole doesn’t just talk the talk—with his healthy lifestyle and skin that speaks for itself, he truly walks the walk.
LEVEL UP YOUR SKINCARE
All OLEHENRIKSEN products feature elevated, colorful and modern packaging, inspired by Ole’s Scandinavian heritage. OLEHENRIKSEN Skincare is organized into clear and distinct product franchises that can be mixed and matched for a customized routine. Inspired by Ole’s spa expertise and philosophy, we believe all skin has the potential to transform. Each product is formulated with a simple skincare formula in mind: exfoliate, replenish, and transform.
The Truth Collection
Brighten skin at every step of your routine with vitamin C favorites like Banana Bright™ Eye Crème (HKD 345), C-Rush™ Brightening Gel Crème (HKD 375), and Banana Bright™ Vitamin C Serum (HKD 530)
The Transform Collection
Smooth away the rough days with daily exfoliation, using Glow2OH™ Dark Spot Toner (HKD 240) and Lemonade Smoothing Scrub™ (HKD 260)
The Transform Plus Collection
Fight all visible signs of aging with innovative alternatives to traditional ingredients – such as PHAs in Phat Glow Facial™ (HKD 405)
The Balance Collection
Reduce oil and refine pores without stripping the skin with bestsellers like Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser (HKD 215) and Balancing Force™ Oil Control Toner (HKD 240)
In addition to his experience in skincare, Ole drew inspiration from a makeup artist must-have he observed during his years of on-camera work: banana powder. The well-kept secret of banana powder inspired Banana Bright Eye Crème (the cult-favorite bestseller and #1 eye cream at Sephora NA) and Banana Bright Face Primer, which provide a subtly sunny tint to instantly bring radiance to the entire complexion. The soft-focus effect creates a luminous canvas for an Ole Glow® that lasts and lasts, demonstrating the power of this collection that truly bridges skincare to makeup.
GIVE YOUR SKIN A HYGGE
Everyone deserves to have skin they love, and this begins with a healthy dose of self-love. The Ole lifestyle is full of positivity, taking time for yourself and hygge, the Danish concept of warmth, comfort, togetherness, and wellbeing. Skincare is not “one size fits all,” so with Ole’s expertise, the brand empowers clients to find what’s best for their skin to make their me-time exactly what they need.
OLEHENRIKSEN is proud to be:

MILLENNIALSKIN On-The-Glow TINTED MOISTURIZER SPF 30/PA+++
Just like the generation its name celebrates, MILLENNIALSKIN is Dolce&Gabbana Beauty’s effortless foundation for unstoppable glow on the go.
The newly-reimagined MILLENNIALSKIN comes with the same fresh, natural glow to the skin – but also now has a new, more advanced formula, an extended shade range – and mistake-proof new packaging, making it even easier to be ready to glow any time of the day or night.
MILLENNIALSKIN is the ultimate go-anywhere tinted moisturizer for instant, effortless and universal radiance. Light reflectors create maximum light and skin appears healthy and glowing – no retouching required.
But Dolce&Gabbana Beauty also believes that skin should be nourished and enhanced at all times – which is why MILLENNIALSKIN has been reformulated to contain the Dolce&Gabbana Beauty Mediterranean Glow Complex, a synergy of natural ingredients powered by exclusive skincare technology that plumps, softens and hydrates the complexion. Mediterranean Fig Extract smooths and protects, Organic Italian Olive Oil plumps and softens, and Hyaluronic Acid provides lasting hydration.
And for urban protection, MILLENNIALSKIN also contains a combination of protective ingredients and UV filters to provide broad-spectrum SPF30.
MILLENNIALSKIN now comes in an expanded range of 6 radiance-boosting shades to perfect the skin and lift its inner glow – each one expertly blended to create the most natural, freshest-looking complexion.
With its ultra-lightweight feel, each shade in the expanded MILLENNIALSKIN range will melt imperceptibly into skin, creating a naturally luminous finish that instantly perfects, hydrates, and protects the skin. Skin is brighter. Fresher. Radiating with energy and life.
A new formulation deserves a newly-reimagined packaging. The sleek black MILLENNIALSKIN tube has been redesigned with a cleaner, easier, and more premium-feeling pump, dispensing just the right amount of product to make application easier and more effortless. Apply as part of a morning make up regime – and again whenever skin needs a refresh. The modern, minimalist design is as perfect on-the-go as it is used at home.
