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.

Olivia Munn’s Makeup

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

“Olivia has stunning hazel eyes that I really wanted to accentuate with shades of shimmery gold, copper and brown. To complement her eyes, we chose bold, red lips and pink cheeks for the perfect combination of ‘bombshell’ and ‘timeless beauty.’” – Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Artist.

CHANEL Allure Eau De Parfum

One day back in late 90’s when I was a business student at NYU’s STERN School of Business for lunch I went shopping and actually bought then the newly launched Chanel Allure perfume. Since my purchase I manage to have finished at least 3 bottles of Chanel Allure and other Chanel special edition perfumes launches for spring.

CHANEL Allure Eau De Parfum

Chanel Allure takes me back in time in a very nostalgic way. I used to get lots of compliments, people were curios what I was wearing. I smelled good from what I understand.

Leonor Greyl Detangling Milk Styling Spray

Marta Walsh’s Best Product Pick of The Day: Leonor Greyl Detangling Milk Styling Spray aka Leonor Greyl LAIT LUMINESCENCE. It’s very sheer, I like how the spray is misty not ‘aggressive’ too wet one big spray, perfect for not weighting down my hair. Smells pleasant. I apply on wet hair before blow drying.

LAIT LUMINESCENCE is a leave-in, dangling styling product formulated with full of plant extracts, vegetal oils, and without silicone, this two-phase lotion turns milky when shaken, before use. It’s GOOD:)
