Amazing Face

Nothing worthwhile comes easy in life.

And that includes flawless makeup.

But O‘ahu-based Maleana Cosmetics has developed a line of makeup that solves one particular problem: keeping brides’ makeup perfect for an entire day through sweat, humidity, wind and rain, even tears.

And Maleana products keep their vow to stick around till soap and hot water do they part. Which means they can easily stand up to everyday wear. (We know. We tried them.)

Need your gloss to stay put? Lip Toxyl Sheer ($22) gives your lips a tingly plump-up with a hint of shine, and it stood up to a cup of green tea and a bowl of ramen. (It didn’t stand a chance against KFC, though.)

The Mineral Liquid Powder Foundation ($38) is creamy but not greasy, and didn’t shift, slide or melt off after an entire day of meetings, running errands and spending two hours at the dog park.

The Indelible Gel Eyeliner ($15) draws a perfect, precise line that won’t go anywhere, not even after an hour on the elliptical. (Trust us.)

We wouldn’t make this up.

Maleana Cosmetics are available at the Maleana Styling Studio & Showroom, 3705 Waialae Avenue, 808.737.3663.
