NARS & Marc Jacobs team up for an awesome collaboration!!

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs - and makeup genius François Nars have teamed up in a beautiful way! In a friendship that has lasted several years, the two are collaborating in an amazing way!

First Marc called upon François to helm the makeup backstage at his fall 2009 show (and he has been doing so ever since); then François persuaded Marc to sit in front of his lens, and pose (fully made-up) for his book, 15X15. Now the twosome is getting together once again for a new collaboration: cool—and clever—boxed sets of fingerless cashmere Marc Jacobs gloves and NARS nail lacquers.

Available in black cashmere with black-gold polish or purple cashmere with smoky lavender polish, the sets marry a major accessories trend—fingerless gloves not only make texting easier but they carry the same cool factor as a pair of open-toed boots—with one of the season’s best beauty looks. Of the polishes, which Nars mixed exclusively for this project, he says, “they don’t match the gloves, but complement them.” Everyone can appreciate that.

Marc Jacobs Fingerless Glove and NARS nail polish sets, $52; available exclusively at Nars 413 Bleecker Street, New York, 646.459.2323.

I love it!

The search is over.

I have really curly hair so of course my favorite look is flat iron straight. I have tried different many flat  irons over the years but it was so much work to get my hair completely straight I would only attempt once every few months. I had the chance to check out the Amika Ceramic Styler and love is an understatement. This iron is so great and easy to use I went from using a flat iron 3-4 times a year to 2-3 times a week. I love how easy it is to use and my hair gets salon straight in half the time.

Amika has a great holiday collection out for 2011 with lots of fun designs and sizes to fit to everyone.

Lancôme Introduces Trésor Midnight Rose

Lancôme is thrilled to announce the newest addition to our iconic Trésor fragrance family- Trésor Midnight Rose. Inspired by the cobblestone streets of Paris, Trésor Midnight Rose embodies a mischievous sense of femininity. The sweet floral, created by perfumer Anne Flipo, is encased in a faceted bottle that blushes powder pink to violet, with an elegant satin rosette at the neck. The notes of raspberry, rose, vanilla and sensual musk combine for a seductive candied scent.

Lancôme ambassadress Emma Watson is the face of Trésor Midnight Rose—her first campaign since joining the Lancôme family. Shot by legendary photographer Mario Testino, the print ad and TV campaign evoke free-spirited 60s icon Jean Seberg.

Trésor Midnight Rose is available for 1 oz. ($44), 1.7 oz. ($56), and 2.5 oz. ($75) EDP spray; at Lancôme counters and www.lancome.com
