Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have, Number 1!

mhumust-have10.jpgmj-lola-line-up-3_r60lr.jpg

Two years ago, Marc Jacobs launched the wildly successful Daisy. I love Daisy, it’s such a great scent. I never actually splurged on buying it – but everytime I go to a Sephora – or Macy’s I definitely spray it on.

I was recently sent a sample of Marc Jacobs LOLA (in quite possibly the cutest packaging I’ve ever seen) and immediately I want to claim this scent as my own. It is so ME! I wonder if everyone will feel this way. It’s just the best scent ever, probably one of – if not the one favorite perfume I’ve ever smelled.

Those that follow this site probably know that I never really review many fragrances, because I’m so darn picky. But this scent is amazing. It’s so unbelievably intoxicating – that’s a great way to put it. When it’s released – you need to go check it out. See for yourself. You won’t be sorry!

LOLA is my favorite fragrance of 2009 – in my opinion is the best scent of the year. LOVE IT! Perfect Christmas present! Look how beautiful the packaging is!

LOLA is a warm floral bouquet – irresistibly alluring, vividly tempting. The fragrance is an intoxicating swirl of rich layers, wrapping the skin in sensuous florals blooming with a signature of the fuschia peony.

LOLA sparkles with fruity topnotes of delectable bright pink peppercorn, seductive pear d’anjou and succulent ruby red grapefruit. The ultra-feminine heart is highlighted by the lavish dischia peony with soft touches of rose and geranium.

The base lingers on skin exuding a warm and seductive aura with enveloping notes of smooth vanilla, tonka bean and creamy musk.

“Where Daisy is more innocent and sweet, Lola is more sensual — the name conjures up a flirtatious, warm spirit,” Jacobs told WWD.

I have always been a HUGE N.V. Perricone fan. As you can probably tell from all my Perricone reviews. If I had more money, I think I would always be stocked up on their products, because they really are absolutely AMAZING. They are probably the only brand I like – across the board. I’ve never tried a product I don’t like. And this definitely was no exception. This No Foundation Foundation is revolutionary, let me tell you. I shy away from foundation – it’s hard to find one that works with my skin. But of course – darn you Perricone! This product works, and is absolutely heavenly!

Introducing the first advanced anti-aging translucent foundation!

As a dermatologist to some of the most famous faces in the world, their special needs often become inspiration for the creation of new products. When more than one celebrity make-up artist asked Dr. Perricone for a type of foundation that would let the skin’s natural radiance and beauty shine through, No Foundation Foundation was born.

Created to keep skin looking dewy and flawless, this unique formula delivers many benefits of a traditional foundation without the heavy matte finish, which emphasizes the tiniest skin imperfections. No Foundation Foundation is a multi-purpose product that provides natural translucent coverage, corrects skin undertones, instantly smoothes fine lines and boosts skin’s natural moisture throughout the day, all the while delivering antioxidant benefits.

KEY SCIENCES:
Alpha Lipoic Acid – Patented
- The ultimate antioxidant protects the cell
- Diminishes fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration
- Refines skin texture
- Reduces pore size, puffiness, imperfections and uneven skin tone

DMAE
- Provides ultimate contouring benefits to skin beginning to lose elasticity
- Delivers lifted, tightened and toned appearance to the skin
- Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide
- Provides non-chemical sunscreen protection

“I took special care in formulating No Foundation Foundation with a non-chemical SPF 30 to deliver protection against sun damage, making it ideal for all skin types, even the most sensitive” – Dr. Perricone

Marie Claire - July 2009
“I was thrilled to find Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation. It erases blotchiness and pores with just a hint more coverage…”

Lucky – June 2009
“This is a full-fledged anti-aging treatment masquerading as a tinted moisturizer…”

Luxtural®, the newest player on the beauty block, is redefining luxury skin care by emphasizing not only safety and efficacy, but the quality of their natural luxury skin care products.

Luxtural: Hand-Picked by Nature for the 21st Century Beauty Connoisseur

The brand’s unique approach to skin care is a return to true luxury – by combining the best aspects of the luxury, natural skin care and scientific industries; Luxtural achieves what no other skin care company can. Luxtural’s primary concern is a green approach to anti-aging. The powerful formulation contained in each of the three skin care products are clinically tested, hypoallergenic, free of parabens and synthetic fragrances, and are created using sustainable ingredients like Pure Pacific Ocean Rainwater. According to the brand’s founder Pnina Vilinsky, “real anti-aging starts with proper hydration,” therefore ingredients found in Luxtural are original collaborations and unique to the line.

Luxtural aims to appeal to a woman’s aesthetic preferences while still delivering high performance. “Our customer has always been a woman who seeks the best in skin care,” says Pnina. “You don’t have to sacrifice luxury for effective and quality skin care products. Luxtural is truly the only one of its kind: a results-orientated skin care line emphasizing natural ingredients.”

Why Pure Pacific Ocean Rainwater?

Luxtural’s products contain the pivotal ingredient: Pure Pacific Ocean Rainwater, which is collected before it ever touches the ground, preventing it from containing additional minerals, contaminants or toxins that may be present in the soil.

According to Pnina, “for thousands of years, rainwater has been used by ancient cultures for purification and holy rituals, many of which were frequently a symbol of new beginnings.” With this in mind, Luxtural chose Pure Pacific Ocean Rainwater as the foundation for their skin care line in lieu of typical filtered or low-grade water. Pnina notes, “rain is the most natural and original ingredient that exists in nature, making it the perfect choice to be included in the Luxtural product line. After extensive research and testing, I chose the Northern Pacific Coastline, with its exceptionally clean air and ocean winds, as the source for our pure rainwater because of its soft, fresh and clean qualities.”
