Before starting Skinn Cosmetics, I worked for twenty years with the largest cosmetic houses in the world. I found myself constantly frustrated with the way they did business. Unfortunately, the big cosmetic companies never seem to care about making quality products that actually help the consumer. Their "formula" was always the same: make a cheap product, put it in a fancy jar with a nice box and charge as much as possible. After learning that I was never going to change how those big companies do business from within, I realized I needed to change the nature of the very industry in which they operate.
When I launched Skinn in 2002 the question most asked was "How are you going to do it Dimitri? How are you going to give us more products, better products, and keep them at a comparable price?" The answer was really quite simple. After working at the highest levels of the big cosmetics houses, I learned that the money they spend does not go into the product. In fact, it seems to go everywhere but the product: ad campaigns, department store counter space, Park Avenue offices, and, most of all, packaging. Believe it or not, most companies spend more money on the container and fancy boxes than on the product that's inside. I used to sit in meetings in those Park Avenue offices to talk about how to improve the company's products. Those meetings always seem to end the same: "Let's change the packaging." Upgrading the product was always deemed too costly as it would require re-educating the consumer about what constitutes a quality product. In essence the secret would be out that water does not have to be the first ingredient in every product.
Skinn offers its products only through televised home shopping, the internet and exclusive, privately owned spas throughout North America. This has allowed us to reach the maximum amount of people, while keeping overhead very low. We don't have expensive retail shops or New York office suites; you won't see costly magazine or prime time TV ads. What we do have are some of the finest cosmetics ever made. You'll see the difference!

I purchased one set for myself, and one for my other daughter for christmas. I am so glad I did. I'm not a big make up (foundation) user, but this goes on so smooth without looking like you're wearing anything, just covering up and smoothing the appearance of your face. The colours are so great, and I love that it doesn't dry out your face or your eyes, not even the eyeshadow. It stays on till you take it off. love it, and so did she!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Simply the BEST
from Windsor ON
This is my 3rd Plasma order and I LOVE it. The formulation blurs any lines, you dont need much and your skin is left feeling fresh and looking healthy and bright...feels like you not wearing makeup at all.The lip colours are wonderful and have lots of moisture and are long lasting. When used over an eye primer the shadows offer a very high end rich colour saturation and smooth application which lasts until evening make up removal. The colours are on trend and easily blendable. I would absolutely recommend all 3 of these 5*****winners !!
There's really nothing better than this

My daughter a (skincare specialist) was trained on the best skin treatments/brand (I wont mention the names...but if you've been trained in the skincare line, you will know what I'm speaking of) in Canada, she couldn't believe this brand when I introduced her to this line....I went to her to see if this stuff I bought of shopping channel was any good!? LOLShe read the ingredients and we watched Dimitri on the tsc and she was amazed of the line...like she was so excited to listen to Dimitri speak in the same lingo as she and to have someone that truly cared about their clients.Nothing else is allowed in our household, and we tell everyone about Skinn Cosmetics.Oh yes, we are 4 women in the family...but our 2 boys use this line too.

The plasma foundation goes on very well it has a nice smooth application when brushing it onto your face. The only complaint is the colour against my fair porcelain complexion looks a little orange, i would have liked a lighter shade than they offer. The eye shadow and lipsticks are very good quality they glide on your lips and eyes with ease, they are very good. I would have given a 5 star review if the colour matched better to my skin for the plasma foundation.
Still not sure about the plasma
Like SKINN Flawless finish, I'm still trying to make it look good and something is off. Or, maybe I'm doing something wrong.I do have other products that give me the results Dimitri mentioned but not this one...yet. The rest of the kit is great. I will keep playing with it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
love all of it!
All the products in this kit are great. I am 51 years old and the eye shadows don't crease and glide on smoothly. the foundations are flawless and the lipsticks are long lasting with great colours.Love it all!
As usual Dimitri outdid himself in this kit. The eyeshadows are colours I like to wear The foundation feels so good on my face. I should have bought more kits. The price certainly was good.I encourage everyone to try the SKINN products, you will buy them on a regular basis once you try them
I love the concealer & foundation!
This is just the best concealer and foundation! I'm light-skinned and bought the medium shade which is perfect for winter. Goes on smoothly and easily, looks good all day. The concealer really works to even out my complexion..even covers my 'dark spots'. I'd give both the foundation and concealer a 5-star rating! I'm having a bit of trouble applying the eyeliner without getting it on too thick but think this will just take a bit of practice. The mascara is cry-proof and I love it! The eye-shadows go on nicely and I definitely give them a thumbs-up. The lipstick is a big disappointment! The colours are not to my liking (most are way too bright), the lipstick is difficult to apply evenly (after using the brush I have to even it out with my fingers and that's just nasty!) and the worst is that it makes my lips feel very dry and uncomfortable. I definitely do not recommend the lipstick!Except for the lipstick, these products are wonderful and well worth the price.

I am so glad I bought it too. It looks so natural and the brush is so smooth. What I don't like is the lipstick, however the eyeshadows are amazing as well.This will be my foundation for ever. I'll try more products from this brand.
