Would you wear Chanel’s Feather Barrette?

Chanel has begun selling a selection of their popular haute hair pieces at some of their botiques.

Karl Lagerfeld’s handmade stone, metal, and feather-spiked barrettes were clipped over the base of runway model’s long, straight ponytails during last season’s Chanel show.

According to Vogue:

The monochromatic statement piece shown above seems destined to plunge its beholder into a fit of fashion ecstasy via a swath of wispy black-and-white plumes, CC-strung chains, and signature black tweed. With its ability to make even a simple white tank and slim-cut silk pants look instantly party-ready, it’s as worthy a Fashion Week investment as spring’s retooled pastel tweed 2.55 bags. Now that’s practical magic.

The barrette above is available for only $2,500 at select Chanel botiques, or if you can’t wait – you can call 800-550-0005.

Happy shopping! :)

NEW from Urban Decay: Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint!

I love this new product from Urban Decay! Look how cute this is, I want it! You can use the tint on your cheeks or your lips! Perfect!

This cheek tint can be applied on top of foundation or bare skin without that powdery, cakey effect that can result from use of powder blush. The formula is loaded with good-for-you ingredients like Vitamins E, C, and A, so your skin gets nourishment and protection along with a dose of healthy-looking color.

New Laser-Free Resurfacer containing “Dragon’s Blood Complex”

Peter Thomas Roth has released a new Laser-Free Resurfacer™ containing what they call the “Dragon’s Blood Complex”. The advanced serum is said to repair, resurface, regenerate, and renew skin from the first application.

According to PTR, “Skip the laser but get the results. This serum undoes damage to recapture youth. With 33.5% Dragon’s Blood™ Complex, it helps lessen the noticeable signs of aging that result from time, sun, and environmental damage while dramatically improving texture and tone.”

Dragon’s Blood™ Complex is a patent pending concentrate featuring Dragon’s Blood (5%), a naturally red extract from the Amazon’s Croton Lechleri tree proven to help accelerate skin damage repair. This serum is also formulated with Phytomoist Qusome™ (10%), Aquafill™ (5%), DRC Qusome™ (4%), plus a blend of Derm SRC™, Chromocare™, Niacinamide PC™ and Alistin® (9.5%).

Reportedly – in just four weeks, this product helps boost elastin by 61%, diminishes wrinkles and lines by 56%, and increases pro-collagen by 84%. Dull, aging, overexposed skin is repaired and renewed.

One reviewer on Sephora said: “Does exactly what it says – I noticed a difference from the first day. My skin felt softer and smoother, and after a little more than a week, I’ve noticed a spot left from an acne blemish has started to fade. My skin feels so smooth to the touch and the tone is so even. Best of all, it just feels like velvet on the skin – no stinging, no burning, just beautiful skin. I will never be without this!”

I haven’t tried this product, but I’d like to! For $75 – it’s going to have to contain actual Dragon’s Blood, though.
