FIRST LOOK at Heidi Klum’s debut fragrance!

Heidi Klum, supermodel, mom, designer and ‘Project Runway’ host has created her first fragrance.

The 38-year-old’s signature fragrance is an oriental scent made of pink peppercorn, pear and mandarin, with hints of a mimosa absolute, sunflower, and lily of the valley heart; and musk cosmone, vanilla and Venezuelan tonka bean drydown.

That’s a mouthful!

“There are different moods that as a fragrance creator you can travel to,” Klum told WWD. “But for my first one, I wanted what I felt my staple would be. I wanted it to be sensual and feminine, but still luxurious and expensive-smelling – because I think there are so many perfumes out there that smell cheap and too sweet.”

The perfume is poured into a gold bottle with a clear, rounded wavy base, and the not too retouched ad campaign features Klum with a glimmer of light reflecting onto her wind-blown, blond strands as she gazes seductively at the camera.

“You can sell a dream, and you can sell a lifestyle that a woman aspires to have, but you can’t completely trick her,” Klum explained to WWD. “If people retouch me too much, I get upset – yes, you can help me out a little here and there, but don’t go overboard. I have one tooth that’s longer than another, and if you look at the [Shine] ad my snaggletooth is coming out a little bit – but I like that.”

Shine ($17 – $35) will debut in September.

I have to smell it – just to see how the heck they’re going to put all those scents together!

New from Urban Decay: Rollergirl Nail Kit!

Here it is: a collection of THE six nail shades you’ve gotta have this season. Do your own nails or get them done – just don’t go without this set.

Sexy shimmer, shocking vibrancy and funky glitter – it’s all in this kit of 6 stunning, must-have shades (formulated without toluene, formaldehyde or DBP). Elevate your “at the office” look with Fame, Superfreak and Love Train, and then be amazed how sexy these arresting neutrals look when paired with your favorite cocktail dress and strappy heels. Miss T and Woodstock are striking brights that add an element of daring to both casual and nighttime looks, while Xanadu gives your nails a full-throttle dose of rockstar edge. (Wear Xanadu alone, or layer a coat of this dynamic purple glitter over your favorite nail polish to add texture and make it pop.)

These pocket-sized bottles are highly portable and a great value, because let’s face it – by the time you’re even close to finishing them, you’ll be asking us for next season’s hot new colors. Larger bottles just end up going to waste! The collection comes housed in a box adorned with a 70s-inspired pink and gold foil design and a picture of Rollergirl. Yes, it’s fantastically gift-ready… but you’ll want to gift yourself with this set first.

Included in this kit: Fame (shimmery beige), Superfreak (gold glitter), Xanadu (Purple Glitter), Miss T (pearly fuchsia), Woodstock (hot pink) and Love Train (iridescent white)

Only $28!
