Mischa Barton Launches Fashion & Beauty Line!

Not sure I ever wanted to take a page from Micha’s style book but for those of you who hankering for the Barton look you are in luck. With prices ranging from $55 for a Ruffle Tee to the $200 Annie Ragamuffin dress or get crazy and splurge for the $350 Aspen Waistcoat . She is also launching a cosmetic and body line with everything from body lotion to lipstick.

Mischa Barton hasn’t exactly been heralded by the fashion elite over the years, but that’s not going to stop her from sharing her, um, unique sartorial sense with the world.

That’s right, due to popular demand the erstwhile O.C. actress had gone and launched not only her own clothing line, but her own e-tail site as well.

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Mischa’s Place…

Says the British-born starlet: “Together with the help of my Mum Nuala, my inspirations are brought to life using elements of my personal style. Our Collection has grown and developed to reflect the consumer and myself over the seasons, whilst maintaining a consistent theme.

“I hope you enjoy my designs and have as much fun wearing them as I did designing them!”

We’ll give her this: Mischa left no consumer stone unturned. Or unbranded, for that matter. It’s not just clothes and accessories up for sale on the stylista’s site, but Mischa Barton-branded lotions, body butters, soaps, candles and an entire makeup line.

And she’s not stopping there. While the site delivers to the U.S., U.K., Canada, France, Spain, Sweden and Germany right now, there are rumors afoot that Barton has plans to open up a brick-and-mortar store in London later this year.

The Story of the Man Who Revolutionized the Beauty Industry: MAX FACTOR

Looking for a poolside read for spring break? I am a sucker for a good biography!


NOT JUST A BRAND— THE MAN WHO CREATED AN INDUSTRY

MAX FACTOR
The Man Who Changed the Faces of the World
By Fred E. Basten

“Fascinating . . . you won’t be able to put it down.”
—Glamour

“Enthusiastically told.”
—The New Yorker

Max Factor: The Man Who Changed the Faces of the World (Arcade Publishing, April 2012) is the story of a true innovator, paving the way for modern day makeup. He helped women look like their favorite glamorous stars, bringing his innovative cosmetics to the general public. He revolutionized the world of beauty by producing many firsts: false eyelashes, lip gloss, foundation, eye shadow, the eyebrow pencil, concealer, wand-applicator mascara, and water-resistant makeup. He also introduced the concept of color harmony and the celebrity-endorsed cosmetics advertising that forms the glamorous backbone of the modern industry.

Nice women never wore makeup. Even the word was taboo in polite society . . . until Max Factor entered the scene. Born in Poland, in 1877, Factor worked as a beautician for the Russian royal family, the Romanovs. In 1904, he fled to America where he opened a cosmetics store in Los Angeles. Creating makeup for silent films, then talkies, and ultimately, color motion pictures, Factor designed looks for Katharine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Bette Davis, and countless other beauties of the day.

Max Factor, the father of modern makeup, changed the beauty industry forever. This is his extraordinary story.

NEW from L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Petal-Soft Hand Cream!

This is my kind of hand lotion. It is liquid heaven in a bottle, I’m serious.

I fancy myself as a sort of hand-lotion snob. I have found very few that I like. I hate that greasy feeling you get with most lotions. This lotion DOES NOT do that. It absorbs into your skin leaving your hands gentle and smooth. It’s amazing! Hurry up and get it – because this is a Limited Edition!

Enriched with Shea Butter and vitamin E, this lightly textured and non-greasy cream nourishes and protects hands from daily aggressions. They are soft, moisturized and delicately perfumed with Cherry Blossom’s enveloping flowery scent. Contains a cherry extract from Luberon, France.

You MUST try it!! Trust me!

Disclosure: I was sent a bottle of this lotion to review for the site!
