Embracing a Healthy Family: SKINN Cosmetics by Dimitri James Beauty Product Review

SKINN Cosmetics by Dimitri James Beauty Product Review

Dimitri James worked for over twenty years in some of the largest cosmetic companies in the world before starting Skinn Cosmetics.  He launched SKINN Cosmetics in 2002 and instilled his philosophy to sell products to the consumer that were of quality and concentrated less on fancy packaging.  SKINN Cosmetics are available through televised home shopping, the internet and exclusive, privately owned spas throughout North America. Because they don't have expensive retail shops or New York office suits or utilize costly magazine or prime time TV ads, they can offer quality products with less overhead which benefits the consumer.

SKINN Cosmetics has a variety of products:
I was provided a complimentary Twin Set Collagen Boost Lipstick & Wet Lips Gloss and the Absolute Perfection Pro-Collagen Face Brightener with SKINN-Plexx 12 in exchange for a review from Lisa at It's a Glam Thing


These Twin Sets contain two products your lips will love: Collagen Boost Lipstick and Wet Lips Gloss. Drench your lips in the most up-to-date lipstick colors delivered with collagen-boosting ingredients in a creamy rich formula. Open the other end of the perfectly palm-sized container and discover the beautiful diamond looking glosses that may be worn alone, or over lipstick for a sexy, shimmery pout. Packed with Vitamin E, Soy and Aloe to soothe even the driest of lips.

It is available in four shades: Beige Shimmer, Cosmo Politan, Ginger Snap and Pink Diamond and is inexpensive at $18.50.

My Review:

I have the hardest time finding the right shade and have wasted tons of money on buying a lipstick only to get it home and be disappointed. By luck, this was the perfect shade for my fair skin and blonde hair. I like how you can wear the lipstick or lipgloss alone or together as combined, it offers a glossy, fun appearance. I also noticed it lasts and it doesn't bleed which is a big bonus. It also did not have a weighty, greasy feel like many lipsticks and glosses do.

I really do like the idea of having collagen boosting ingredients as who doesn't want a little help in the lip area. What's nice about this duo is you have two in one so you don't have to carry two products. The container is easy to use and you don't have to struggle to apply either the lipstick or gloss.

I would recommend the Twin Set Collagen Boost Lipstick & Wet Lips Gloss and can't say I found any cons associated with it.


The product is a super hydrating skin brightener, with Skinn-Plexx 12, which helps to protect the skin from dehydration and free radical damage, virtually erasing common skin flaws like large pores, discolorations, dullness and fine lines. Completely different to a foundation or old-fashioned coverage make-up, this feather weight, invisible "second skin" formulation leaves your complexion looking flawless and absolutely perfect by utilizing special incandescent pigments that brighten your skin even on the dullest of days.

Skinn-Plexx 12 is a proprietary blend of DMAE, resveratrol, prodew, coffeeberry extract, goji berry extract, a├žai extract, pomegranate extract, cranberry extract, wolfberry extract, blueberry extract, tourmaline, and Dermaxyl™.

My Review:

I applied as the directions stated daily after moisturizing with my fingertips (or you can use a sponge).  You continue using until you reach the desired brightness and coverage. Since my skin is light, I did not require but one thin coat which is great news for me as it means the product will last a long time.  I have never heard of SKINN Cosmetics so I had no idea what to expect and after opening the bottle, I was doubtful that I would like it.  I was completely wrong.  As soon as I received it, I washed my face, applied my moisturizer and applied the thin coat of brightener.  SKINN Cosmetics has a new fan and customer.  I loved the coverage, the feel and how it looks.  I've used it for three days now and plan to continue using it.  The thing I like the most is it's natural looking and all I need to do is apply a little powder and I'm ready to go.  My face does not have that thicky, weighty foundation feel but the coverage is enough where I don't need anything else.

I would definitely recommend the Absolute Perfection Pro-Collagen Face Brightener with SKINN-Plexx 12 product and it does come in other shades such as light, medium to tan and deep.  It's inexpensive too at $22.50.

Extra Information:

I am so happy with what I've tried, I just ordered the Youth Veil with Brush Set and the Luxe Waterproof Eyeliner and received a bonus: Blush and Blink Compact (see below for details).

Youth Veil with Brush Set:

The look of youth is convex. As we age, the cheek bones flatten and the unde-eye area flattens and sags. Shadows appear under the eye area and around the mouth where laugh lines form--basically everywhere a wrinkle or skin fold happens. Broken capillaries (spider veins) and thinning skin reveal excess redness on cheeks and nose. The skin color also fades with age and the brightness of youth is replaced with the gray and dull beige tone of age.

Youth Veil Airbrush FX, along with the Perfecting Powder Brush will help erase the look of redness, shadows and dullness as it lifts and re-plumps the appearance of facial contours. Also loaded with soothing and calming botanicals, this powder doubles as an anti-aging treatment to offset the look of aging. The talc-free powder is exceptionally micro-milled to re-create the soft, smooth, pore-free look of a professional airbrush machine.

Blush & Blink Compact:

Skinn Cosmetics' Sunny Days Blush and Shadow Compact gives a flawless kiss of color to your cheeks and eyes lasting for hours. The four brilliant shades of remarkable eye colors are Italian baked shadows that will bring out the gleam and glamour in any set of eyes. Whether on the runway or running to the market, these hot-off-the-press lustrous colors will keep you looking your brightest, most confident and sexy best.

A pure luxury treatment liner that creates a smooth no-smudge line even on crepey lids. It contains peptides, shea butter and jojoba to firm the appearance of eyelids and smooth dry lids.

Right now there is free shipping for purchases over $50 in the US. 

Another bonus: Enjoy our FREE GIFT to you with purchase of at least $25.00 (while supplies last) Blush & Blink Fall In Love Compact for cheeks and eyes (just enter coupon code FIL9 on your shopping cart before you check out).

SKINN Cosmetics also believes being good to the environment is as much a part of doing business as is making a profit. They purchase only recycled, recyclable and/or biodegradable packaging materials. They also reuse all packing material sent to them (packing peanuts, bubble wrap, etc). Finally, their products are never tested on animals.
