FROM PIGMENT ALCHEMY A PROFESSIONAL FORMULA
Creativity has always stimulated to sharpen the tools. The smile of a star emerges from a superb range of tones, made possible only to those who master the subtle game of pigments.
The search of sensitive refined and biocompatible materials leads to a chemical and physical exploration of the characteristics for an optimal performance of products, in colors and tones. V)OR foundations and concealers are made with a special formula “talc-free”, where no talc is used as inactive substance and where it is increased to the top the amount of pigments instead, up to a 57.9% against 30% of the non- professional formulas. Result? Absolute high fidelity in the visual reproduction of colors and tones, with perfect makes of over 360 different skin tones.
Covering effect exceptionally light and natural, unsurpassed full-color effect eye shadows and lipsticks. FORMULATION
The formulation on V)or make up foundation, originates from professional needs required by cinema/theater/TV and by beauticians. It is highly covering because it contains about 57.5/57.9% of pigments. The total absence of talc allows 100% availability of pigments, increasing the quality of the product. Thanks to the high pigmentation it is sufficient to apply a thin layer through a latex sponge to obtain a natural and dim result. The presence of very light wax favors a smooth application, fast and easy.
It hides easily skin’s imperfections, lasts all day and does not require frequent retouching.
It does not necessarily need face powder. It does not give heft nor grease sensation on the skin.
The Vor Makeup Video Campaign
The campaign concept is the result of Valeria Orlando’s creativity. It is unconventional for a cosmetics campaign: the fifth element, Love, is a reinterpretation of her team maxim ‘Give Love First’.
The same elements that keep life on our planet, Water, Earth, Fire and Air, are the four elements that made up the secret formula of Vor Makeup.
