Their Spring/Summer 2019 forecasts are called Haven and Masterpiece. To bring their color inspiration to life, we provide textures and concepts as well as detailed formulations.
Haven-Spring 2019 Macro Concept
Pollution concerns continue to increase – including air, water, and food. Allergies are on the rise. We feel assailed from all sides. Spring/Summer 2019 offers us quiet refuge from these elements. Formulations create a protective shield against harmful pollutants and allergens. The beauty trend for natural, bare looks evolves into enhanced nudes – skin tones infused with a light drop of orange are combined with whitened pastels. Feminine and sensuous, the palette brings soothing comfort and reassurance.

Masterpiece – Summer 2019 macro concept

For Spring/Summer 2019, these hybridizations bring us to a unique crossroads between art, nature, and science. These elements come together in surprising blends and contrasts. Scientifically advanced components activate natural extracts to multiply efficiency. Rich formulations invite us to play and mix, generating unexpected combinations.
Cosmetics with BASF pigments
Introducing the trends for 2020/21
For 2020/21 two seasonal trends embrace freedom and empower rebellion. Incognito for Fall/Winter 2020/21 urges choices based on free will and a “no regrets” attitude. While Bliss for Spring/Summer 2021 offers playfulness and euphoria to indulge in “me time.”
Launch into the season with neo-nudes: Edgy neutrals with slightly warm undertones offering the perfect shade for any skin type. Covering formulations with subtle sparkling effects bring life to these deliberately austere autumn colors.
Moving towards the holiday season, colors deepen and gain intensity without losing their neutrality. Mineral and dewy metallic effects with high pay-off underline the festive mood of the season with understated, luxurious looks.
Discover the Possibilities with Effect Pigments for Color Cosmetics
Social media and the color cosmetics industry are telling a story, one of fairy tale makeup for the adult market. Consumers never grow old of wanting to adapt fantasy-inspired looks with magical shimmery and glitter, or simply adding a touch of eye gloss and captivating peachy-pink lipstick to an everyday look!
Cloisonné effect enhancing pigments impart dramatic color and varied pearlescent effects. They are available in a variety of grades that provide different degrees of luster, ranging from a soft, satiny look to high sparkle. To provide such highly intense color, each Cloisonné pigment contains an absorption colorant deposited on either a mica substrate or an interference pearl base. In grades that use an interference base, the colorant is selected to reinforce the reflection color of the interference pigment. The result is a single dramatic reflection/transmission color.
Gemtone Colors offer a wide range of jewel-like, lustrous colors for distinctive cosmetics and personal care products. Like certain precious gems, these rich colorants derive color from both light interference and light absorption. Gemtone Colors contain titanium dioxide coated mica that is further combined with absorption pigments, which produce colors of unique liveliness and intensity.
Reflecks™ MultiDimensions – Color Changing Pigments
Give color cosmetics vibrant life by changing their color as the visual angle of the viewer or the wearer shifts. They add a dramatic sparkle and visual dimensionality, making them ideal for eye-catching transparent formulations such as gels, clear sticks, and nail enamels.
Chroma-Lite Colors contain bismuth oxychloride crystals deposited on mica platelets. These high-value composite pigments combine the performance benefits of both materials to give better transparency and less density than bismuth oxychloride alone. The mica substrate improves crystal strength, so less Pearlescence is lost as cosmetic products are processed. They offer an excellent balance of luster, transparency, and color while imparting a silky feel and improving skin adhesion. They are ideal for mineral makeup.
Timica luster pigments impart shimmering effects, both as white pigments in a variety of lusters and as color pigments in a range of “metallic” and earth tones. They are free-flowing powders that can be used alone or blended with other effect enhancing pigments to improve visual impact.
Link clean, intense, FDA-approved organic colors with iridescent effect pigments. Cellini colors offer a luminescent look that adds bright colors and dimensionality. The pre-dispersed organic pigment can help you avoid the task of grinding, deagglomerating and dispersing stand-alone organic colorants.
