Chanel To Sell Runway Inspired Temporary Tattoos


Temporary tattoos are no longer just fun for little kids. Chanel has decided to launch Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel Temporary Skin Art, a line of temporary tattoos based on designs created by Peter Philips for the Paris Runway Show for Spring 2010.

These intricate designs have proved themselves successful on the runway. From necklaces to bracelets and all the way down to anklets, these tattoos are an interesting way to not-so-permanently brand yourself with the much appreciated Chanel logo. And at $75 for 55 designs, it’s a more affordable way of showing brand loyalty… at least, while it lasts.

And at $75 for 55 different designs, this is a recession-friendly way to wear Chanel this spring.

Tell us: What do you think of this new trend?


NEW from La Roche-Posay‏

La Roche-Posay has launched 2 great new products I was lucky enough to be sent some samples of and I wanted to share them with you!


A great spot treatment, within minutes of application my blemish greatly diminishes in  appearance. Unlike a lot of acne treatments La Roche-Posay’sEffaclar AI is a very lightweight serum I really like how gentle is feels while going on but packs on punch on my blemishes.

NEW La Roche-Posay Effaclar AI Intensive Acne Spot Treatment  to visibly reduce stubborn and inflammatory acne in only three days, while minimizing irritation. This formula takes a unique approach to treat imperfections with the association of two effective ingredients for the first time: Lipo-Hydroxy Acid (LHA), a pro-exfoliating molecule designed to micro-exfoliate the skin and stimulate cell renewal and Benzoyl Peroxide to treat acne in an innovative micronized form.

INNOVATION: Synergistic Combination of Unique Ingredients
· Benzoyl Peroxide, which in its traditional form, can be irritating in high concentrations. Effaclar AI provides Benzoyl Peroxide in an innovative micronized form to release active oxygen and target acne deep in the pores. Effaclar AI contains a 5.5% concentration of Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide which is clinically proven to effectively clear inflammatory acne, while also providing deeper penetration through micronization and minimal irritation.

·Lipo-Hydroxy-Acid (LHA), an exclusive pro-exfoliating molecule to micro-exfoliate the skin and stimulate cell renewal to help even skin tone, including residual skin marking. Developed by La Roche-Posay’s advanced research team, the LHA molecule (lipo-hydroxy-acid) is a lipophilic derivative of salicylic acid that incorporates a fatty chain for improved affinity with the sebum in the epidermis allowing for faster skin regeneration. LHA offers precise, cell-by-cell exfoliation proven to exfoliate six times more the number of corneocytes than salicylic acid.



If you are fighting dark spots then La Roche-Posay Mela-D Serum Anti-Dark Spot Concentrate should be your weapon! In 6-8 weeks of application you can greatly diminish the appearance of dark spots and even some acne scars. Formulated with the highly effective Kojic acid with dedicated use you will see results, while it packs a punch it’s made to work on sensitive skin as well.

NEW La Roche-Posay Mela-D Serum Anti-Dark Spot Concentrate , a revolutionary new formula that visibly corrects dark spots and hyperpigmentation and helps even skin tone. Stemming from dermatological expertise, La Roche-Posay created Mela-D Serum Anti-Dark Spot Concentrate, a highly effective formula that works synergistically by combining three unique ingredients to achieve professional-grade results at home in as little as eight weeks without irritation.


* 0.2% Lipo-Hydroxy-Acid (LHA): A patented breakthrough pro-exfoliating molecule that provides precise cell-by-cell exfoliation to help reduce the size of dark spots.
* 1.0% Kojic Acid: Inhibits the activity of tyrosinase (melanin activating enzyme) in the skin to help reduce the appearance and color intensity of dark spots.
* 5.7% Glycolic Acid: Provides reinforced exfoliation to help reduce the size of dark spots and create a uniform complexion.

The precise keratolytic (exfoliative) action of LHA and the reinforced keratolytic action of Glycolic Acid prepares the skin to allow for even better penetration of the Kojic Acid to attain optimal results. Mela-D Serum Anti-Dark Spot Concentrate is clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone within just two months. In clinical tests, patients experienced 18% reduction in pigmentation, 23% reduction in skin discoloration, and 50% increase in overall skin radiance after only eight weeks of use.

Mela-D Serum Anti-Dark Spot Concentrate is a hydroquinone-free, lightweight, fast-absorbing formula and is non-comedogenic, paraben-free, fragrance-free, dermatologist tested, and safe for sensitive skin.

Kim Kardashian launches a new fragrance!


Kim Kardashian took to her website to announce the launch of her new fragrance, named after herself.

The fragrance is now officially listed exclusively on Sephora’s website! It is available in two large sizes, perfect for your dresser, a ‘to go’ bottle that fits easily into your purse, and a rollerball! You can’t buy it until Feb, but if you sign up on their website you can get an email alert when it becomes available!

This was one of the most exciting projects I’ve been involved in because I got to be so hands on every step of the process from choosing scents, to designing the bottle and the accent features. You guys even helped me pick the pink bottle accents that really make the black bottle pop!

More exciting news to come surrounding the fragrance launch so stay tuned! :)

I’m not into celebrity fragrances (I won’t ever purchase a celeb fragrance, call me crazy) but if you are – you can go here to pre-order from Sephora!

Kim Kardashian drives me nuts. She is EVERYWHERE right now. Too overexposed, if you ask me!
