As a huge fan of Laura Mercier (I swear by the foundation primer and tinted moisturizer), I was so excited to see that Gilt.com has a nice assortment of beauty products currently on sale. There's everything from sophisticated nail polish colors and soft mineral blush to lip glaze palettes and pencil sets to create an alluring smoky eye. Oh, and CONTINUE READING
Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING
Hey Guys! As you all know the weather lately has been terrible and most of us have been getting all kinds of horrible colds and the flu, as a result. This is very personal for me because I work in retail and it seems like I get one disease after the other with all of my customers constantly sneezing CONTINUE READING

I always thought Marc Jacobs Daisy smelled great in the bottle, but not so hot on me. I’m much more of a Lola gal, myself. So, today, while perusing Sephora.com, I noticed a new version of Daisy – called Daisy In The Air – and thought I’d check it out.
But after doing some research, I found that Daisy In The Air isn’t a new version of Daisy at all. It’s actually the original Daisy fragrance in a limited-edition bottle, adorned with light blue flowers. It comes with “a scented daisy chain to hang in your room for a touch of inspiring scent and playful visual appeal.”
It’s not clear at all, on Sephora.com, that this “new” Daisy isn’t a re-imagination of the original scent. So I just wanted to warn Daisy owners not to be fooled into purchasing a bottle of Daisy In The Air – that is, unless your bottle is almost empty and you need to replenish anyway.
CHANEL just announced that Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese will direct the broadcast advertising campaign for their new men’s fragrance. French actor and rising international star, Gaspard Ulliel, is the face of the new line and will be featured in the ads. The new CHANEL men’s fragrance will be launched worldwide in September 2010.
Is there a better fragrance ad than the Dior J’Adore commercial starring Charlize? I think not. No only did it prompt me to get reacquainted with J’Adore’s fruity floral bouquet (we originally parted ways in college), I even downloaded Marvin Gaye’s “A Funky Space Reincarnation” on my iPod…good stuff.
The commercial for Miss Dior Cherie (directed by Sophia Coppola) is another great one. Dior just does it better. One perfume ad I could do without (besides the Britney Spears ones – those go without saying), however, is the Estee Lauder Pleasures commercial. I cannot stand the way Gwyneth Paltrow pronounces “pleasures”…her accent just sounds so contrived; makes me wince every time she says it. My theory is that she’s spent too much time viva la vida in London. Anyway…now, when it comes on TV, I brace myself for it. Too bad…great perfume, stinky ad.
Today, Avon announced it has signed actress Zoë Saldana to be the spokeswoman for the brand’s new fragrance, Eternal Magic, debuting April 2010. In addition to supporting Eternal Magic, Saldana will also be featured in the company’s brochure as a face of Avon’s color cosmetics category in the coming months.
“I’m very proud to be working with Avon and to be the face of Eternal Magic,” says Saldana. “It means so much to me to be associated with a company that shares my values and believes in empowering women.”
“We are thrilled to have Zoë as the spokesperson for Eternal Magic. Every woman wants to be unforgettable and Zoë perfectly embodies that feeling. She’s a rising star in Hollywood – and has built a strong reputation for playing empowering characters that leave a lasting impression,” says Geralyn Breig, Senior Vice President and President of Avon North America. “We were drawn to her inner and outer beauty, and feel she represents the perfect combination of strength and femininity.”
An unforgettable fragrance that leaves an indelible impression, Eternal Magic creates everlasting memories with a fragrance signature that lingers in the air. The artfully crafted fragrance takes inspiration from the rare Princess Monaco Rose. The enchanting scent is the embodiment of the unique magic that surrounds mysterious, alluring women everywhere.
Though you can’t buy Kim Kardashian’s new fragrance until February, you can get a sneak peek at Sephora.com and be notified when it’s available for purchase.
The essence evokes Kim’s sultry style with crisp top notes, lush mid notes, and a sexy drydown. Gorgeous, voluptuous florals reflect her allure, while soft jasmine, tuberose, and gardenia mirror her femininity. Tonka bean, jacaranda wood, and sandalwood add a warm, sensual base.
The Kim Kardashian fragrance collection includes: 1 oz Eau de Parfum Spray ($35), 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray ($50), 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum Spray ($65), and .33 oz Eau de Parfum Rollerball ($16).
Glam Princess is “for the boldly brilliant girl who is ready to celebrate and rule the world in the most glamorous way. She introduces herself with guava and juicy pear, reveals her beautiful heart with liquid honey and vanilla orchid, and offers sweet depth with marshmallow accord and cedarwood.”
Zoe Kravitz has succeeded Camila Belle as the new face of Vera Wang Princess. Descended from rock/celeb royalty (her parents are Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet), I think she’s a great choice to usher Princess into the a new decade.
So, does Glam Princess rule? I actually haven’t sniffed Glam Princess yet, but I own – and adore – the other Princess incarnations (Flower Princess, Rock Princess and the original Princess, which I wore on my wedding day)…so I plan to stop by Sephora this week and get a whiff. I’ll let you know what my nose thinks soon.
Vera Wang Glam Princess comes in 1 oz Eau de Toilette Spray ($45), 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette Spray ($72), and 5 oz Satiny Body Lotion ($32).
