The origin of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist is more than just the story of a fragrance –it is a story of love and connection. Introduced in 1994 as the scent behind Donna Karan’s Bath & Body collection, the scent has transcended time to become an iconic fragrance, evoking the softness and luxury of cashmere for twenty years.
This summer, they celebrate the fragrance’s longevity and the consumer passion that inspired it with Making of an Icon, a short documentary film that tells the story in Donna Karan’s own words of the origins of Cashmere Mist.
Featured on cashmeremist.donnakaran.com , this short film celebrates The Idea, The Scent, and The Feeling of the best-selling scent. Included in the film are Donna Karan, Linda Wells, EIC Allure, Nick Calderone, the perfumer from IFF and Trey Laird, who worked with Donna on the campaign.

Another winner product by Kate Somerville skincare line: the NEW IllumiKate Concealing Eye Cream. It does both concealing and is an eye cream. Best thing about it is that it get rids of under eye dark circles, redness, skin imperfections, and it has a super light texture so it glides very easy on the skin and absorbs quickly. The shade I use is Light. A must-have in my makeup bag, like many of Kate Somerville’s products.

Plus, the Diamond Complex covers dark circles and minimizes imperfections for flawless coverage.

Victoria’s Secret Wins THREE 2014 Fragrance Awards. Victoria by Victoria’s Secret won the 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards Fragrance of the Year Consumer Choice Award. Victoria also won Women’s Fragrance of the Year.
Victoria by Victoria’s Secret Perfume fragrance notes: Victoria features an aromatic burst of Red Berries, a heart note of signature Victoria Rose and the warmth of Crème Brûlée. It’s a fresh, floral, fruity blend that captures the timeless appeal of Victoria’s Secret.
The winners in this category are: Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free, and the best thing about this foundation it applies so clean you can skip your face powder. It also won’t rub on your clothes and hands during the day. If you find the ‘Mattifying’ effect a bit drying just make sure to use your most moisturizing face cream before.
My second winner is ESTEE LAUDER Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup. Same as above, this foundation stays on all day and doesn’t transfer.
