TOKYO — Bare Escentuals Inc., under the tutelage of its parent company Shiseido Co. Ltd., is launching a bareMinerals skin care line developed specifically for Asian skin.
The new line, developed from Bare Escentuals' proprietary mineral ingredient ActiveSoil Complex, consists of seven products. There are two cleansers, two nighttime serums and three moisturizers formulated for normal, dry and combination skin.
Shiseido said the products will hit the market at 11 department stores in Japan as well as Japan's version of shopping channel QVC on March 16 and subsequently rolled out to other Asian countries.
Prices range from 2,940 yen, or $37.81 at current exchange, for 140 ml of Purifying Foam Cleanser to 4,725 yen, or $60.76, for 30 ml of Active Cell Renewal Night Serum.
The line, which targets women in their 30s and 40s, attempts to counterbalance the fact that women lead busy lives and have insufficient time to rest their bodies and replenish their skin, Shiseido said in a release.
"The texture gives a smooth feeling without stickiness and thus is also comfortable for the highly humid climate specific to Asia," the company said.
Bare Escentuals started expanding its skin care offering earlier this year, rolling out items like a cleansing foam and a firming eye treatment to the United States and the United Kingdom.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
