I recently had the chance to meet Lisa Claycomb, the product developer who started the “instant skincare” brand Genie Beauty Products, and learn all about their products. Genie has been a hit on shopping networks QVC and TVSN. What really struck me about Genie were their product innovations, and how much sense they made once Lisa explained them to me. Here are some of their coolest products:
Instant Line Smoother ($59.95 AUD / $38 USD for 19 mL, $99.95 AUD for 30 mL) is the hero product from Genie Beauty. It’s based on film forming ingredients that dry to make a tightening film, filling in lines and flattening out puffiness and sagging skin. This gives your skin an instant pick-me-up in just 2 minutes! You can also mix it into liquid foundation. It dries clear so you don’t need to worry about weird colours, and it contains moisturising collagen, aloe vera and silk proteins to hydrate the skin underneath. I found that it flattened out my undereye area nicely, and as a bonus, my concealer creased less too. There are some stunning before-and-afters on their site showing Instant Line Smoother on people with serious crows feet and sagging – this is definitely worth trying if you’re considering a facelift!
Million Dollar Lash Kit ($29.95 AUD / $15 USD for Lash Booster or Mascara, $39.95 AUD / $25 USD for both, 10.8 mL each) is the best booster/mascara combo I’ve tried so far. The TLC Plus Lash Booster goes on white and has a curved brush for easy application. It extends your lashes quite impressively and is compatible with any mascara. The TLC Plus Lash Mascara has a cool V-shaped applicator that applies 2 coats of mascara with one swipe. Both the lash booster and mascara are loaded with beeswax, carnauba wax and silica and nylon fibres to thicken and lengthen your eyelashes. Here’s the before and after on my lashes:
