Elie Saab Le Parfum

Elie Saab’s first perfume is quite a unique one. I like to describe it as “honey in a bottle”. I feel good wearing it. The perfume was created by world-renowned perfumer Francis Kurkdjian and is based on a floral, solar, woody theme. Other perfume notes include: orange blossom, Mediterranean petals, jasmine, pure patchouli, white flower bouquet, cedar woody accord, and the magic word for me: rose honey.

“I like ‘womanly women’, women who twirl their dresses with desire and pride” Elie Saab says. “Ever since my childhood in Lebanon, I’ve examined the way they dress, I’ve always wanted to please them by their curves.”

Estée Lauder Makeup Fall 2011

Estée Lauder Modern Mercury New Pure Color Fall 2011. New star makeup products to look for this Fall from Estée Lauder created by Tom Pecheux their Creative Makeup Director. Pecheux took the Estée Lauder makeup collection into a new level. Fabulous colors & shades and more bold and long lasting pigments. There is definitely a new era at the Estée Lauder house. Turned me into a loyal fan.

Pure Color Velvet lipstick in Nude Velvet which is matte yet moist and perfect with smoky eyes. If you’re into matte lipsticks this one is brilliant.

Angel Eau de Toilette

Thierry Mugler’s latest scent, Angel Eau de Toilette. 20 years after the launch of Angel, Mr. Mugler introduces this exciting new Oriental, Gourmand, Powdery fragrance that is soft and subtle. Angel Eau de Toilette is a stand alone fragrance, not a flanker to Angel EDP, and contains notes of Bergamot, Berries, Praline, Patchouli-Vanilla, and White Musk. The innovative bottle is round in front and faceted in the back with a star on the tip. As with all Mugler fragrances, the bottle is also refillable. Eva Mendez is now the new face of the Angel franchise, including Angel Eau de Toilette.

ANEW Genics Treatment Cream by AVON

The NEW ANEW Genics Treatment Cream by AVON is absolutely brilliant. It’s super rich and hydrating however never greasy. Fast absorbing. Smells really subtle and pleasant. Instructions on bottle say to apply PM but I apply it both AM and PM. I tend to improvise when it comes to skincare and makeup because I’m all about  freedom. Whatever works for you. To reiterate, this is another Avon’s star product imo.

Narciso Rodriguez In Color For Her and Essence Perfumes

Loving the new Narciso Rodriguez In Color For Her and Essence limited edition Perfumes for fall 2011. The bottles are beautiful. In Color is a bit more woody and warm than Essence. Just in case you’re wondering. Although Essence smells more floral and powdery than In Color it’s a more complex floral, woody floral if you will. I would say I’m more In Color For Her than Essence because I tend to wear warmer perfumes & not into florals.

L to R: Narciso Rodriguez In Color For Her and Essence Perfumes available September 15th, 2011 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I love color when it’s pre; it can be subtle or it can be very strong, bit most of all I love it when it’s very pure. Pure color elicits profound emotions and memories and that’s what fragrance should be about.”-Narciso Rodriguez.

Garnier Fructis Straightening Balm With Argan Oil

Loving the NEW Garnier Fructis Straightening Balm With Argan Oil from the sleek & shine blow dry perfector product line. The magic ingredient is Argan Oil which the new buzz word in haircare. Morrocanoil haircare line is when I first discovered Argan Oil in haircare. Looks like it’s the new trend. Why I love this product by Garnier is that it really keeps my hair straight and frizz free long after I first blow dried it. Remember a little bit goes a long way.

NARS International Lead Makeup Artist Uzo created actress Olivia Munn’s bold look for InStyle’s Summer Soiree. TM & Marta Walsh has the scoop.
