ish to green undertones. Bolero Cromatico, along with
Winterveld, Foliage Flutter and Jaipur Sunset will enhance
and correct skin tones and work the same magic under eyes
in a progression of tones from rose to olive to medium dark
to dark brown skin.
Enhance and Correct
Small concentrations of a Multicolor in skin-toned cosmetics
may transform these products into stand-alone facial cosmetics. MultiColor will impart just the right color and glow
to skin-toned cosmetics, whether a moisturizer, foundation,
powder or bronzer. The pure color and dimensionality of the
MultiColor will, given the right formulation, also transit
Left eye: MultiColor in Creme to Powder
Left eye: MultiColor over Foundation
Left eye: MultiColor over Concealer
through to successive base and color cosmetics applied to the
face (see chart above).
So, the use of Multicolors will allow a skin-toned cosmetic
to stand on its own or be used with additional layers of facial
cosmetics. For the consumer on the go who wants a quick,
easy and immediate fix, any of these products with the right
touch of color and effect, used alone or in combination, can be
very beneficial. Use of any one product does not preclude use
of others. MultiColors in the right concentrations will help
integrate successive layers of base and color on the face (see
photos at left).
Improved Color Cosmetics
MultiColor pigments may be used in a complete range of
color cosmetics to create vivid, deep, smoky and sultry colors
with sophisticated shimmer. They are more muted than our
traditional mica-based titanium dioxide or iron oxide coated
effect pigments, but their combination of color play and bottomless, ethereal radiance make them ideal for color cosmetics in any number of textures that complement a mood,
evening’s desire, whim or season. MultiColors on lips, eyes
and the face can be tailored to any age group. However,
because they create a somewhat more mature and nuanced
shimmer, MultiColors extend the possible use of effect pigments across age groups.
MultiColors are skin-toned effect pigments that breath new
life into skin-toned facial cosmetics by means of simultaneously enhancing and correcting skin tones. In color cosmetics, their pure, rich colors and unique dimensionality provide
a more muted, sophisticated glamour than traditional mica-based effect pigments.
We are exploring new uses, or combination of uses, for
MultiColors. Taizhu does so partly by harnessing the creativity and innovative capabilities of makeup artists, whom we
admire and consult when developing certain products.
Taizhu’s Optically Integral colors will therefore be designed
to meet industry and consumer needs in very directed ways
with the help of a broad range of partners. MultiColors will
revitalize, extend or transform existing and new cosmetic
products to better meet consumer’s stated and unstated
