Alicia Keys it the new face of Givenchy’s latest fragrance!

The Grammy Award-winning singer looks gorgeous in a strapless gold gown, and sleek hair. Alicia is the face of Givenchy’s Dahlia Divin, which will hit shelves in September

“This scent is grounded, but still has a femininity that is very earthy, and I love that,” Keys told WWD.

And while this marks Keys’ first-ever beauty contract, the 33-year-old has some pretty awesome ideas on the future of the beauty industry — namely when it comes to diversity.

“It seems that only one type of beauty is seen as beautiful. I think it’s very important that we stretch that concept and the way that it’s viewed. The biggest mistake is to think that beauty is physical. Beauty is so internal, and it’s about who you are and what you believe in, what you stand for. That’s what makes you beautiful,” Keys told WWD. “I think that’s really important to infuse into the conversation in the beauty world. I would like to see different representations of what beauty is. I’d like to see women with a little more voluptuousness. There’s no way in the world that we’re all a size 2, and people beat themselves up if they’re not small enough or light enough or dark enough or skinny enough.”

Can’t wait to smell it!

Christy Turlington poses with her husband Ed Burns in new Calvin Klein campaign!

o-CHRISTY-AND-ED-570

Well they make one stunning couple, don’t they?

Christy Turlington has modeled for Calvin Klein since 1995 when she appeared in their ‘Eternity’ campaign. She’s now back as the face of the iconic fragrance, and her husband, Ed Burns, is making his debut in the ads as well!

If at all possible, the photos released Friday are even better than the ones from back in the day. Perhaps that’s because, as the supermodel told Women’s Wear Daily, she didn’t have to fake it when it came to being intimate with her co-star:

Usually you pretend to be intimate on these types of campaigns, and when they go to change a lens or the roll of film is complete, you’re like, “So, how about those Mets?” It’s just awkward.

Well, if she ever did feel awkward in past campaigns, we certainly couldn’t tell. However, there is something really beautiful about seeing a couple pose together, especially for a brand that Turlington Burns has been connected to for so long.

They look too hot! I love that they’re still together!

Fresh Vanilla Lemon on the go!

I have probably three of Lavanila’s Roller-Ball Fragrances, because a) they smell AMAZING and last for hours, b) they’re affordable and c) they are so portable! I keep 2 in my purse at all time – and put a little perfume on with little to no effort.

I absolutely adore this vanilla lemon scent. My sister tried to steal it from me – and I had to karate-chop her to keep her hands off it! It smells heavenly. It smells like spring and summer wrapped up in one tub. Trust me. Amazing.

Lavanila’s Healthy Roller-Ball Fragrances are the perfect fragrance to throw in your bag. These Roller-Balls are ideal for jet setting as well as running around while doing errands at home.

The Healthy Fragrance Roller-Ball ($19) is travel friendly, purse friendly and skin friendly. The fragrance is blended with exotic essential oils and skin soothing botanicals for timeless expressions of nature that captivate the senses and nurture the skin.

Introducing Aerin Beauty!

mhu-reviews-1215-4

“Amber Musk is a warm, inviting scent you want to wrap yourself in – like a soft cozy blanket on a cold snowy night.” – Aerin Lauder.

Aerin Lauder is Estee Lauder’s granddaughter. Aerin founded her lifestyle brand in 2011, and since has created many popular items for her cosmetics, home goods, accessories and purses. Estee Lauder released five of Aerin’s perfumes in 2013, Gardenia Rattan, Amber Musk, Lilac Path, Ikat Jasmine, and Evening Rose. With the five scents, Aerin wanted to capture the scent for each mood and time of year.

Each of the fragrances were developed with the help of Firmenich perfumers. The collection was inspired by Aerin’s favorite fabrics, and the outer boxes by designs from her line. Each bottle has a different stone as the cap, representing the color of one of the ingredients in the perfume. Green for Gardenia Rattan, pale brown for Amber Musk, pink for Lilac Path, white for Ikat Jasmine and purple for Evening Rose.

I have tried Amber Musk, and I’m in love. AERIN Beauty Amber Musk blends sensual florals, distinctive amber and creamy musk. Ambrox makes a velvety first impression, contrasted by a succulent burst of Coconut Water and the femininity of Rose Centifolia Absolute. Like the glow of amber flames, lingering Benzoin & Musk infuses the fragrance with warmth.
