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 www.lancome.com, as well as Lancôme Boutiques, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman.
It will be interesting to see how Allure Magazine does a spa!
Allure magazine plans to launch this fall a spa-oriented offshoot publication called Allure Spa. Billed as a guide to the luxury spa experience, Allure Spa will cover skin care, fitness, fashion, nutrition and lifestyle trends at destination and day spas. The magazine also will explore hotel and resort spas, as well as medi-spas, and aims to tap industry experts to present consumers with an insider point of view. Allure editor in chief Linda Wells also will be in charge of Allure Spa. Allure is owned by Condé Nast Publications, parent of WWD.
Catherine Zeta-Jones isn’t just the face of Arden, but she is a stockholder as well–but you won’t see a signature fragrance from her by Arden any time soon.
What the deal is not likely to yield, despite Arden’s prowess in the celebrity fragrance market, is a Catherine Zeta-Jones fragrance. “We’ve made a conscious decision about that, because I am the face and spokesperson for Arden,” she said. “I think we’re all in unison that if it’s not broke, why fix it.” Also, she noted about endorsements, “Things have completely changed. It used to be, if you’re an actor, why are you selling stuff? People only used to do it in Japan. But beauty is an industry that makes complete sense for an actress.”
Haven’t heard of this brand, but maybe it’s time I did!
The Thymes is leaping into the prestige beauty market this spring with the launch of Beauty of Bathing, a new brand inspired by fragrance traditions and bathing rituals from around the world. “We wanted to reinvent and modernize ancient bathing rituals for today’s women and create something that’s more high-end and luxurious,” said Amy Backman, The Thymes marketing manager. “By creating a more exclusive line, we’re raising the bar by creating a high-end bathing line.”
Looks like the trend of mineral makeup is definitely on the upswing…
Armed with its new owner’s resources, Colorescience is aiming to solidify its position as doctors’ top choice for mineral makeup.
I’m sure we have some Carmindy fans in these parts, so get ready for a partnership between Sally Hansen and Carmindy for a Natural Beauty line of makeup.
Sally Hansen is going the natural route and bringing a friend. Rather than just introduce a natural collection of cosmetics, Del Cosmetics partnered with Carmindy, the resident makeup artist on TLC’s “What Not to Wear.” Carmindy is known for her knack for highlighting women’s natural assets. Natural Beauty marks Sally Hansen’s second stab at color cosmetics â€” the brand launched the now defunct Healing Beauty line in 2003.
What is the best at-home waxing product? What works best for legs, bikini area, etc.? What do you use? Do you opt not to wax and go for creams or au natural?
Strobe launched today (United States, Canada), and I believe it is already available internationally (as is next week’s Beauty Powder Blush launch, lucky ducks!).
OVERALL, Strobe offers a new line of Tinted Lip Conditioners with both UVA/UVB SPF-15 protection ($14.50) that come in sheer, shimmery shades. They’re soft, moisturizing, and give just a hint (or tint, HA!) of color. I found Strobe Liquid to be exactly that–liquid–compared to the original cream version. If you have oily skin, the liquid version may give you reason to check it out, whereas the cream is thicker (but I prefer it, still).
