 “Very Hollywood”, by Michael Kors



 I am so excited to see Michael Kors and Estée Lauder teaming up. I have always wanted to see a cosmetic line from Kors and think that this is a great partnership.  Of course we all know that this will send Lauder’s sales through the roof.   


 “The Estée Lauder Michael Kors Very Hollywood Color Collection (Kors and Aerin Lauder, the senior vice president and creative director for the Lauder company, are longtime friends) features two looks based on the same philosophy Kors has for his runway beauty: classic with pops of color. “Bel Air Beige” is warm, with shimmery peaches for cheeks and lips, beige and chocolate for the eyes, and an opaque beige nail polish. “Rodeo Pink” (shown above) focuses on that color, at least for lips, cheeks, and nails; the black-and-white shadow duo works for sultry smoky eyes. There’s also a loose shimmer powder in pearly pink for the signature Kors glow. The products are on counters in January, so look for them then!”

Jason Wu to Launch Shoes, Makeup; Turns Down Reality Show

In Beauty, Fashion on April,2009 at 8:24 pm

Since Michelle Obama wore a dress by Jason Wu at the inauguration, the designer has received offers for tell-all book deals and even a reality-TV show. But he’s humbly turned them down to focus on growing his label. “I don’t want any of the fame bit to go to my head. I’m only ever as good as my last collection,” he tells British Vogue. He plans to launch makeup and shoes within the next two seasons and hasn’t ruled out branching into menswear eventually. Barack Obama might be spoken for (he wears Hart Schaffner Marx suits), but Tim Geithner might welcome some help.

And as for the fuss over MObama’s bare arms? “I was amazed by that — was it really an issue? I mean, we’re not living in the past — and it wasn’t as if there was a high split in her skirt or she was showing cleavage,” Wu says. “And anyway she has great arms so show them off!”

ROCCA Cosmetics

ROCCA Cosmetics gives me a new reason to enjoy GOLD.  Its skincare line features 24k gold as one of their main ingredients.  ROCCA Cosmetics is known for its Cellular Gold Complex which includes 24k colloidal gold, Vitamin-C, Hyaluronic Acid and Fulvic Acid.  These ingredients help to minimize the signs of aging by boosting the cell regeneration process.

Founder Laura DeLuisa LaRocca was introduced to the wonder of gold when she suffered total kidney failure and believed this mineral played a role in her recovery. “I wanted to make the benefits of gold widely accessible in the form of technology-driven, results oriented skincare without compromising the environment,” says LaRocca about the birth of Rocca Skincare.

So just how does this really work?  The colloidal gold that lies at the heart of the exclusive complex, promotes electron transfer with the metal ions naturally found in the skin. This transfer, together with the ingredients chosen for their exceptional targeted performance, helps stimulate cell turnover and leaves skin smooth and rejuvenated with a youthful glow.

The collection includes 24K Gold Cleanser, a silky cream cleanser with a gentle natural exfoliant that dissolves makeup quickly while it moisturizes and helps stimulate collagen growth; C-Gold, a velvety lightweight gel that helps energize cell regeneration while reducing fine lines and minimizing the appearance of age spots and wrinkles; 24K Gold Moisture, a weightless veil that revitalizes, hydrates and firms the skin; 24K Gold Eye Cream, a multi-tasking eye treatment that lifts, tightens, lightens the cells around your eyes.
