Summer 2008 – Lancome – The Daria Collection

This May, Lancôme is proud to launch Brazilian Earth Colors by Daria Werbowy.  Created by Lancôme spokesmodel Daria Werbowy, these three products include a lipstick, lip gloss and eyeshadow quartet. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Centro Espacial Vik Muniz, a group that supports arts education programs for young adults in Rio de Janeiro.

The project came about after Daria visited one of the Centro Espacial programs as part of a trip to Brazil. She toured the facilities and was treated to a special performance by the young adults who study a variety of specialties there. Moved by what she saw, she approached the Lancôme team about creating products that could be sold to benefit Centro Espacial. The team enthusiastically agreed and Daria quickly visited the labs outside of Paris to learn about mixing makeup. The product development and research teams showed her how to blend colors and choose textures and ingredients. A fan of neutral shades, Daria decided upon beautiful nudes that call to mind some of the earth tones she saw in Brazil.

Brazilian Earth Colors by Daria Werbowy will launch this May around the world. In the United States, it will be available exclusively at Sephora, the Lancôme boutiques and

The Daria Collection includes the following new products: Color Fever Lipstick in Beige Caracai, $26.00, Color Fever Gloss in Nude Prainha, $24.00, Color Design Eye Shadow Quad in Carnet de Velours, $45.00

Makeup Tips Galore from Lancome & Dr. Klauer Event!

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a makeover (I want to say not since my Chanel makeover last May), and to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of makeovers, but I really enjoyed this one. Perhaps it’s because I’m so into blogging nowadays, so I always have a lot of questions to ask, and I’m really listening to what they’re saying. The picture above is me post-makeover, and it turned out well, thanks to Kim the Lancome Expert.

First, since the event was focused on Dr. Klauer and her philosophies about eating right and exercising, I want to talk a little about what I gleaned from her. I do want to preface it with the fact that I have not read her first book, though now I have an advanced copy of her second book (all attendees received a signed copy!). She spoke about the importance of getting certain vitamins, like Vitamin D-3 and Omega-3.

She talked a bit about the importance of calcium and getting a bone density scans once you start menopause. The reason for this is because it gives you a baseline so you can see how and how fast your bone density is decreasing. She advocates eating more fish, because of the benefits of them as a food, but also because of their Omega-3 amount. She does mention that if you’re young or still planning to have children to make sure you are aware of mercury levels in fish, so you may want to dry dark Italian tuna.

There’s tons more advice and makeup tricks I learned and heard…

Lancôme – Christopher Kane Juicy Tubes World Tour

To celebrate Christopher’s sexy designs, flair with color and international mindset, Lancôme asked him to collaborate on a project for the iconic, oft-imitated Juicy Tubes franchise. The result: The Juicy Tubes World Tour, nine new lip glosses, each decorated with an illustration by Christopher. The shades, names and flavors were born from his fashion travels: from Rio, where, “the girls have an incredible kind of beauty,” to Paris, “the fashion capital of the world,” to New York, where”girls are groomed, sophisticated and so well dressed,” each captures the excitement of the hottest cities around.

Christopher is thrilled to be part of the Lancôme family and equally excited to be part of what he deems the “Juicy Tube phenomena.” “I have always loved the way a Juicy Tube can transform a lip with its patent texture and appearance,” he says. “It plumps the lip to perfection.”

Lancome – Pixel Pink Color Fever Shine Lipstick by Thakoon Review

Lancôme introduces the must-have lipstick shade of the season! Color Fever Shine in Pixel Pink is the fourth installation of the Pout-à-Porter series of limited-edition lipsticks created exclusively for the runway by renowned makeup artist Gucci Westman. Westman collaborated with Fashion Designer Thakoon to create a beautiful sheer raspberry shade, which was worn by all the models during Thakoon’s Fashion Week Spring 2008 fashion show.

Pixel Pink is a gorgeous shade of pink with just a touch of mauve/plum in it that keeps it a toned down, subtle shade of wearable pink for just about anyone. It applies sheerly, but it can be built up for more color pigmentation (which is what you see on my lips). It has a nice glossy sheen, and it wears well throughout the day. I like the Color Fever Shine range, because they feel really moisturizing and smooth on the lips, like you aren’t even wearing lipstick. The only downside is the price ($25.00), which is steeper than my usual go-to lipsticks are. Nonetheless, I still think this is a more universal pink, which makes it worth taking a peek at if you can.

Available at, as well as Lancôme Boutiques, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman.

Lancôme – Thakoon’s Pixel Pink Lipstick Creation, YouTube Video!

Lancôme’s Thakoon Lipstick video is live on YouTube! The video showcases celebrated designer Thakoon Panichgul and the creation of Pixel Pink, the special lipstick created for his Spring 2008 runway presentation. The video was created by Grant Greenberg, the New York City-based filmmaker who directed last season’s charming Peter Som lipstick video for Lancôme, and features the artwork of painter and experimental filmmaker Jeff Scher.

Pixel Pink is the fourth and final lipstick in the Pout-à-Porter series of shades created exclusively by Lancôme for the runway. It has already sold out in record time on, and is currently available at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus counters and the five Lancôme boutiques: Manhattan (212.362.4858), The Mall at Short Hills, NJ (973.258.0790), Northpark Mall in Dallas, TX (214.750.9364), Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, CA (408.244.8334), and Brea Mall in Brea, CA (714.671.0267)

Greenberg is a graduate of the world-renowned filmmaking program at New York University, where his thesis film “Cricket Head” won the Wasserman prize for best graduate film. “Cricket Head” has since screened at festivals around the world, winning prizes at the Palm Springs, Clermont-Ferrand, Edinburgh and Monte Carlo film festivals. His most recent film, “Sick Sex,” which he produced and shot, was an official selection of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Scher’s work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and the Hirshhorn Museum, and has been screened at the Guggenheim Museum, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and at many film festivals around the world, including opening night at the New York Film Festival.
