Jennifer Lopez to release new fragrance, Glowing.

In an interview with WWD Jennifer announced she’s releasing a new fragrance “Glowing”…

“Glowing, is a step beyond Glow.” Jennifer explains. “Glowing is such a clean fragrance, that’s what I’ve always been about. I like soapy, clean smells. This is a very woodsy scent. So it’s not exactly what I created 10 years ago – it’s the evolution of that. At the essence, it’s still natural, earthy, clean and real, but a little different side of that. It’s the woodsy side of it, which I think is kind of New York-y, darker and sexier.”

Glowing is a floral woody amber concocted by Lopez with Givaudan’s Calice Becker and Caroline Sabas. Top notes consist of of bergamot, mandarin and cypress; a heart of orange flower, muguet de bois and cassia flower, and a drydown of sandalwood, amber sultan, vanilla, vetiver, patchouli and cashmere musk. The eaux de parfum will launch in May and will be sold in the US at Kohl’s in three sizes: 1 oz. for $39, 1.7 oz. for $49 and 2.5 oz. for $65. The 1.7-oz and 2.5-oz. There will also be a 6.7-oz. body lotion for $27.50. The bottle will light up for 15 seconds when the atomizer is pressed, In homage to Glow. The juice has a faint lavender tint. Overseas distribution will begin in July.

Ads for the fragrance have been shot by Sølve Sundsbø with creative direction by Olivier Van Doorne. They will debut fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazines in May.

Get Adele’s Grammy Look With Koh Gen Do!

 

I love Adele, such a gorgeous girl with a voice that is heart stopping. Congrats on her 6 Grammy wins, she looked and sounded flawless last night.

Get Adele’s Grammy Look With Koh Gen Do!

Adele stole the show last night walking away with 6 Grammys Award wins and an incredible performance! However, it was her absolute flawless complexion that got all the attention on the red carpet. Celebrity makeup artist Daniel Martin shares his tips on how to recreate the look using high-definition Koh Gen Do Cosmetics.

1. Apply Koh Gen Do Moisture Concealer ($54) to cover discolorations, dark circles and prime eyelids. The smooth, soft texture applies evenly, allowing sheer layering that fits perfectly onto skin with long wearing results.
2. Moisturize the skin while you cover imperfections with Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation ($62). Koh Gen Do’s Aqua Foundations balance the conditions of ions on the skin’s surface with rich minerals and nutrients.
3. To set foundation, apply Koh Gen Do Maifanshi UV Face Powder ($42). The fine pearl powder fits into uneven skin surfaces, camouflaging pores and fine lines.
4. Finally, brush cheeks with Koh Gen Do Fresh Face Cheek Color in Apricot Peach ($41) for a natural, long lasting wash of color.
