New Products!

Dior has released a Limited Edition of their hugely popular (and a personal favorite) Diorshow Mascara. Introducing Diorshow 360! This professional mascara mimics a makeup artist’s application technique for a perfect 360-degree lash-styling effect. Featuring a patented double-helix brush with extra-smooth fibers and a sculptable wax formula, this mascara features a spinning brush that rotates in both directions to adapt to every need, whether you’re left- or right-handed or you want to pump up upper or lower lashes. I think that brush looks awesome! Even though I’ve switched to CoverGirl Lash Blast, I may be swayed to try this! ($36)

Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm from Clinique! This gorgeous lip color treats lips to mouthwatering moisture and a hint of soft shine. It never needs sharpening—simply swivel up to reveal more of the balm. I’m in love with lipstick balms lately…it’s a lipgloss and lipstick in one! I can’t wait to try this! ($15)

This adorable new palette from Stila is new this month, and for only $10 it could be yours! Whether you’re chilling by the fire or hitting the slopes, the Adventurous in Aspen Travel Palette ($65 Value) will warm up your winter look in the coolest of climates. It has four trend-setting shades: Snow Angel (shimmering heather gray), Icicles (blue), Glisten (shimmering gold), and Ajax (black with gold sparkle). The palette also includes Convertible Color in Rosy, a rose-pink shade that’s perfect for creating a natural winter glow. ($10)

According to an anonymous source, Claire Danes experiencing side effects from Latisse!

A gossip item out of the New York Post’s “Page Six” is making Claire Danes’ lashes flutter.

An anonymous source claims “that Danes’ makeup artist has to plaster on concealer to cover the bruise-like purplish and yellowish” skin discoloration that the actress’ use of lash-growth drug Latisse has left around her eyes.

Cited as a possible side effect, skin darkening joins redness, itchiness and alternate hair growth as unwanted consequences that may occur with use of the serum, for which Danes was tapped earlier this year as spokesmodel.

While the 31-year-old Emmy-winning star admits on her Latisse blog to experiencing redness during the first week she was on the lash-growth serum, product maker Allergan is calling foul on the talk of skin darkening.

“Between Claire’s team, Allergan and Claire’s physician, we don’t know where this false rumor originated,” an Allergan spokesperson tells StyleList.

“Claire Danes has been using Latisse since late 2009, and has been happy with her experience and lash results. She continues to use Latisse, and is proud to continue to serve as a spokesperson for the Latisse brand,” adds the spokesperson.

I wonder if it’s true!?

    Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have Number 7!

    Clarins 2010 Holiday Barocco Collection is inspired by the dramatic, daring and sensual style of the baroque period. From luxurious draperies to rich golds – this historical time was one of excess, glamour and mystery. The new collection from Clarins introduces four limited edition pieces that celebrate every woman and her unique beauty.

    These new products make my list, because, well, I love them! The makeup itself is beautiful – but the cases, the cases each look like a piece of jewelry! I swear I feel like royalty when I pull them out of my purse.

    I love this new collection. I love the golds, and deep black. It makes for a glamorous evening look. I know anyone else would love these pieces. One of them – or heck – all of them! They’re wonderful!!

    * Barocco Face Palette: A soft, light compact powder with a scroll motif in peachy-pink and sandy-beige. The combination of the two shades is perfect for illuminating the face or adding matte touches to the complexion. ($55)

    * Barocco Shimmering Gold Powder for Face and Décolleté: An elegant black and gold powder box holds little nuggets dusted with golden pearl. With a sweep of the puff, they release a fine powder to beautifully enhance the skin with sparkling reflections. (Here)

    * Barocco Eye Colour Trio: A trio of shades that create the perfect smoky eye for day and night with these ultra-fine textures that can be combined, layered or blended together for perfect holiday makeup. Create a wash of bronze to enhance the eyes, black to define the eyelids and gold to catch the light and brighten the inner corners. ($40)

    * Barocco Rouge Prodige: The purple velvet drapes of the Baroque period are the inspiration for the colour of this lipstick. The rich formula combines long-hold colour, extreme shine and total comfort. ($24)
