This month, Lancôme unveils its highly anticipated collaboration with British designer Christopher Kane – nine new lip glosses known as The Juicy Tubes World Tour. The limited edition lipcolors were created to compliment Kane’s Spring 2008 collection, and each tube is ‘dressed’ in a Christopher Kane design.
The shades, names, and flavors were inspired by the designer’s wanderlust; each captures the excitement and essence of the world’s hottest fashion capitols.
“I have always loved the way a Juicy Tube can transform a lip with its patent texture and appearance” Kane says. “It plumps the lip to perfection.”
Juicy Tubes in Copacabana Coffee, Fifth Avenue Frosting, Grand Cafe Creme Brulee, Moulin Rose, Paris Bubbly, Peach Mochi, Red Hot New York, Rio Mango, and Tokyo Plum Blossom are available at Sephora.
Every year an average of 2.4 million weddings are performed in the United States. And June is the most popular month for marriages – accounting for 10.8% of weddings.
March may seem somewhat early to start thinking about wedding season. But, trust me – many June brides are already at their wits’ end, trying to decide on a makeup look that will be immortalized in their wedding photos and videos.
Last year at this time, I was preparing for my own nuptials – so I remember what an exciting, yet physically/mentally/emotionally taxing time it can be; I clearly recall agonizing over the makeup I would wear on my wedding day.
This Spring, Bobbi Brown, the bridal beauty authority, has done the hard work and assembled her wedding day must-haves in a new Bridal Kit. Exclusively designed with brides and their bridal parties in mind, the Bridal Kit contains special occasion essentials that flatter all complexions. The sleek white case includes: Ivory Eye Shadow, Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Black No Smudge Mascara, Pink Sugar Shimmer Lip Gloss and a Short Handle Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush.
With the exception of the eye shadow, I own all of these products – and would highly recommend them to future brides. I’m speaking from experience, as I used a few Bobbi Brown products on my wedding day. Plus, if you were to purchase these products separately, it would cost you more than $100 (not including the cosmetic case) – but the Bridal Kit only costs $75.

March 10th-17th is National Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Week – and to support the efforts of the NYC Chapter of the National MS society, theBalm has created a limited edition KISS MS GOODBYE version of their best-selling “Girly Girl” BalmShelter Gloss.

The New York City Chapter of the National MS Society helps the thousands of New Yorkers impacted by MS to move their lives forward they provide comprehensive support services and educational programs to people with MS, their family and friends, and raise funds locally to support the National MS Society’s research initiatives.

“I found my inspiration from the ethereal rising of the morning mist over a sun-splashed rainforest, lush with warm, ripening fruit and budding, bright blossoms. For me, this scene translated to a color story made up of tranquil eyes, sun-caressed skin, and bright, glossy lips. The result is a sheer, ephemeral look.”
–Alina Roytberg, Co-founder and Creative Director of Fresh.
