“Gonna dress you up in my mud…” Madonna’s skincare line, MDNA, offers its Chrome Clay Mask, sourced from the potent mineral-rich clay of Montecatini Terme in Tuscany, which draws out impurities in the skin and deeply hydrates. The patented Neodymium Magnetic Tool then lifts away the mineral base and color, along with dead skin cells, makeup residue, and pollution, leaving behind only the luxurious serum. Flip the tool to the other end, and the gentle current infuses the serum deep into the skin and stimulates blood flow. The result is a glow unlike any mask I’ve ever tried.
Inhibit High Definition Intensive Line Minimizing Patches
These potent patches, which can be used anywhere on the face, deliver Natura Bisse’s patented “Inhibit” ingredients via the use of tiny self-dissolving micro-cones. When pressed gently onto the skin, these cones deliver the serum deep into pores, plumping and firming lined or sagging areas, like under eyes and the nasal-labial folds around the mouth. The effects are cumulative, so the more often they’re used, the better the result.
LES 5 OMBRES Eyeshadow Palette in limited-edition Trait de Caractère
This is the ultimate day-into-night shadow palette. For a soft daytime look, I combine the bone and iced-nude as an all-over lid shade, then use the aubergine as a soft crease-contour and use a tight-lining brush with a combination of the ash and emerald to define the upper lashline.Taking this into evening, I pop ash and emerald into the outer corner and blend until a subtle smoky “stained” effect is achieved across the entire lower-lid, and then line with Chanel Aqualiner in Noir Intense and a Fervent Bleu in the lower water-line. Sexy, elegant, and very versatile
An intoxicating and earthy blend of Coconut Water, Ambrette, Cocoa Absolut, and Wild Musk, this XO Exclusively Ours fragrance has become my favorite new scent for those who prefer a subtle, almost unisex vibe.
D.S. & DURGA
Brooklyn-based husband and wife master perfumers, David and Kavi Moltz, have created my newest favorite scent in the citrus category. Bright and edgy, Italian Citrus combines Blood Orange, Chinotto, Ambrette and Clean Musk. Equally fresh and beautiful on both men and women.
Isabel Madison’s collection of 7 nude lip colors allow every woman to select the nude lip shade that best suits her skin-tone and style, while leaving the lips deeply hydrated. My personal favorite is the shade “Intuition,” the perfect neutral-rose, a subtly deeper shade of your own lips that’s beautiful on everyone I’ve tried it on. (Disclaimer: I worked with Isabel to create “Intuition” and its mocha cousin “Attitude,” and I confess to having a girl-crush on Isabel, so I’m probably a tad biased.)
