LUSH Dirty Launches


LUSH Dirty

For people who care about their appearance but can’t be bothered with too much paraphernalia in the mornings, the NEW “Dirty” collection is a no-nonsense fragrance that hits you with intensely crisp spearmint, thyme and tarragon, and the subtle smell of calm seas.

Dirty takes the common idea of ‘layering’ with beauty products a little bit further. Normally, grooming products will all have a different scent. However, this new concept of layering means you can shower in invigorating spearmint and thyme, shave with soothing lavender and sandalwood, and style hair with tarragon and oak moss. Once all of these products with their individual fragrances have been used, the combined scent will be that of Dirty, and can be topped off with the body spray, which contains all those main notes.

Dirty Spring Wash Shower Gel ($9.95 for 3.3 oz., $17.95 for 8.4 oz., $26.95 for 16.9 oz.)

Don’t be a dirty rotten scoundrel. Recreate your very own mountain spring and wash with this tingly, softening, minty shower gel that contains spearmint, thyme, and sea salt.

Dirty Shaving Cream ($12.95)

Shave it all off using our ultra-softening oats and benzoin shaving cream. There’s also lavender and sandalwood in there to soothe any irritations.

Dirty Hair Gel ($12.95)

Refresh your coif with our conditioning and softening, firm hold styling product. Made with fair trade coconut oil, linseed gel and balm herb infusion for the perfect just-got-out-of bed style.

Dirty Body Spray ($19.95)

If you don’t have the time for a full-on Dirty routine in the morning, take a quickie instead and spritz yourself liberally with this body spray before you head out the door. No one will ever know.

Giorgio Armani Gloss d’Armani


Giorgio Armani Gloss d’Armani

More than a mere gloss… Concentrated high-definition color, fusing shine, comfort and lasting hold. Giorgio Armani’s color expertise takes a three-dimensional form.

A dress code with 18 captivating color variations: Nude beige, at the heart of Armani’s color DNA, is expressed in luminous half-tones, draping the lips in a sheer chiffon-like veil. From rosewood to raspberry, desaturated pinks add an extra dose of chic to your style. Like moiré silks, the plum shades combine shine and depth of color. An unexpected red shakes things up: Rouge 400, the incendiary signature Rouge d’Armani shade, now in a sheer version for an astonishing, explosive effect. Infused with light, the color melts into a curved, feminine design that echoes Rouge d’Armani’s aesthetic; a couture silhouette in a translucent case with a black lacquer top.

The exclusive Color-Fil Shine technology, allows the texture of Gloss d’Armani to be compared to a weave that gently and lastingly adorns the lips. The secret ingredient: the Color Bond Polymer, already found at the heart of Rouge d’Armani, has the ability to form a supple mesh that traps pigments and pearlescent particles. Thanks to its translucent formula base, the texture gives full expression to color. Mirror oils increase its shine while silicon oil leaves it silky smooth and non-sticky. The comfortable, stay-fast color is like a second skin that remains true for eight hours without fading or migrating. Dress your lips with Gloss d’Armani.

Gloss d’Armani’s velvet applicator is so precise that just a single gesture achieves a flawless result. Impeccably shaped, it hugs curves, beautifully enhances volume and defines contours…instantly and effortlessly, with an expert touch.

availability: On-counter now, 18 shades, $28 each

Givenchy Demesure Audacious Lashes for Fall 2011


Givenchy Demesure Audacious Lashes for Fall 2011

Nicolas is overflowing with imagination and is always ready to venture beyond bounardies. Today he reveals his own professional secrets to interminable lashes with staggering volume. The new Givenchy mascara, the mascara that is superlative in all aspects, bears his signature: DEMESURE, Audacious Lashes. This High Tech accessory at the cutting edge of innovation combines an extensible brush and a finishing tool. An exnclusive hyaluronic acid-based formula adds volume to the base of lashes without weighing down thetips. A super-audacious product for extravagant, breathtaking volume.

Generously coat lashes, wrap them in the material like you would a luxurious black sheat. Shape lashes one by one with an ultra thin accessory for a singular definition. It took two years of intensive research to finally create this exceptional item: the first three dimensional telescopic brush.

To create density: the volumising shaft has 16 inlaid grooves which serve as reservoirs for material. Each time it is dipped in the vial, they are engorged with mascara so that the base of eyelashes is covered with a thick coating on application.

To define: enclosed in the shaft, a totally clean elastomer separating brush is released by activating the base of the cap. Its cone shape guarantees ease of use combined with ultra-precision. The finishing tool gives the ultimate touch of precision. Its finesse provides a customized, unequalled, lash-by-lash result.

Three shades: Audacious Black, Audacious Brown, Audacious Green (which is limited edition).

availability: Fall/Winter 2011

Givenchy Je Veux La Lune Collection for Fall 2011


Givenchy Je Veux La Lune Collection for Fall 2011

Love, fear, fascination, curiosity; all these emotions it brings out, don’t they just make you want it, with all the superstitions and fantasies? Poets’ escape to an imaginary world fevered by its mysterious face of many messages. It influences nature and sentiments and exerts a magnetic disturbance on our will… I love the Moon for the femininity and softness that it suggests, for its light and shadows, for the adorning veil that it delicately places over our lives. To want the Moon is to want what seems unattainable; that is exciting! But technological advances have now made fanciful lunar voyage possible as well as the mastery of light in this collection.

Les Ombres de Lune, illuminating powder and intense shadow, are the coalescence of this fantasy source light and contrasted moon. The desire to create shadow where there is none inspired me to a great extent; deflected moonlight that gives a different angle to reality. I wanted to take a cinema makeup technique that has always intrigued me and apply it to beauty. The “American night” demands a different way of working with light; complexion must radiate in bold contrasts, like for a black and white image. I wanted the Moon…For you. — Nicolas Degennes

An illuminating powder for cheeks, eyes, complexion and an intense eye shadow for a twilight effect.

  • Lune Mysterieuse No. 1 Black moon in a creamy white sky (Limited Edition)
