The famous Swiss manufacturer of prestige high-end cosmetics, La Prairie, has just announced the launch of its new brightening product. The innovative White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion targets age spots, redness, and dullness of the skin, which are three major light-barriers to a luminous, youthful complexion.

Backed by science, the new member of the White Caviar range promises to help reveal your youthful, radiant skin, in just four weeks. Infused with brightening pearls of youth, the Illuminating Pearl Infusion helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, sun-induced damage, and redness.

At the same time, it forms a breathable protective shield over skin, which guards it from dirt, environmental stresses, and pollution.


Same as the rest of the White Caviar collection, the Illuminating Pearl Infusion not only brightens the skin, but also helps increase its firmness. Powerful, age-defying, ingredients come encased in opalescent white caviar pearls, which are blended into a rejuvenating radiant serum.

On each application, just the right amount of pearls releases a silky first-of-its-kind formula that diminishes redness, erases dark spots, and reduces pollution-induced grayness.


As always, La Prairie’s uses only the most unique and precious active ingredients. The rare golden caviar extract, found in this formula, helps stimulate collagen production, thus helping he skin to restore and maintain its firmness and elasticity. Rich in amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, caviar extract provides a gentle firming action, combined with nourishment and energy.


La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion should be applied morning and evening, over face, neck, and décolleté. For the best results, use it with other products from the White Caviar collection. It’s available from March 2017. A 30ml bottle retails at €385.00

Discover Chanel’s Rouge Coco Gloss with Lily-Rose Depp


On Wednesday, Maison Chanel revealed the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis as the face of its new makeup line. The young star, who turns 18 in May, fronts advertising for Chanel’s new Rouge Coco Gloss, and it’s a must-watch… The Franco-American actress shows off her radiant smile in a playful and sensual campaign from Mario Testino.

After being named as the face of Chanel’s No.5 L’Eau fragrance in 2016, Lily-Rose Depp is captured in an ad campaign for Chanel’s new beauty collection, Rogue Coco Gloss. The beauty ambassador — who recently walked down the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 runway during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week — highlights the coveted collection in a short video (above), while featuring the different shades of the must-have beauty product. Created by Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer, the luscious glosses have a melting gel texture thanks to a ‘hydraboost complex’ formulation, comprising natural waxes of jojoba, sunflower and mimosa, plus a natural coconut oil derivative, to help achieve that long-lasting colour.

Rouge Coco Gloss comes in 24 colors with a variety of effects to suit all tastes, styles and moods, from nude to chocolate brown and several shades of pink, red and purple.

The range of colors and textures is further expanded thanks to three accompanying top coats: a clear topcoat with added sparkle, a translucent neon orange-yellow and a deep black.

To celebrate the release of the Rouge Coco Gloss collection, Maison Chanel is set to launch a series of colourful stickers that will be available to download from the App Store from March 1, 2017. The Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss collection will be available at all leading beauty counters across the world from February 24, 2017.





NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Shade Extension for Spring 2017



NARS has just announced the launch of some brand new shades of its famous Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. This bold and versatile stick-format lip color now comes in an even more diverse array of highly pigmented shades, with a velvety matte finish. The brand has unveiled its new nudes, rule-breaking reds, and unexpected, audacious tones, designed to help you reach a brand new saturation point.

Virtually every color can work on everyone. Paired with a soft eye, even the darkest or brightest shade of lip color can create a striking makeup look on its own. With lips more than any other features, I follow a no rules approach.

Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C 10%



Clinique has just released its powerful new anti-ager powered by pure vitamin C! The Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster is a super-nutritious age-defying concentrate that works just like your morning fresh pressed juice. The Booster mimics the effects of vitamin bombs and supplements to visibly rejuvenate skin.

The product is suitable for all skin types, and proven to be effective against uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture. It delivers a high concentration of fresh vitamin C to brighten uneven skin, improve the look of numerous signs of aging, re-energize, and retexturize the skin.  In addition, vitamin C provides powerful antioxidant action, protecting skin from harmful environmental stressors.



In case you did not know, vitamin C is highly unstable and it naturally degrades when exposed to oxygen, which is, as we all know, all around us. Vitamin C is one of the most beneficial vitamins you can apply topically, but to harness its full power you have to use it while it’s still fresh. Since all antioxidants are at risk of destabilizing when exposed to air and light, only those products that are packaged in opaque containers or airless bottles can keep their ingredients stable. Clinique’s stay-fresh packaging is specifically designed to isolate the pure vitamin C until activation, keeping its freshness and full power for maximum results.

To use it, you have to firmly press inner bulb twice to release Vitamin C powder into the soothing emulsion. Shake to blend, remove the cap, and simply mix two drops of the solution with your favorite moisturizer. Use it morning and evening to power up your skin care routine. Once activated,  the Booster retains full power for seven days, but Clinique says that it may darken due to normal vitamin C oxidation.





  1. Leave cap on. Remove foil.
  2. Firmly press inner bulb twice to release vitamin C powder into the soothing emulsion.
  3. Shake 15 seconds, and before each use.
  4. Remove cap.
  5. Mix two drops with your moisturizer AM and PM to power up your regular routine.
  6. For full potency, use within seven days then discard.

Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster is available as a 4-pack, for $76.50. This should be enough to boost your skin care regimen for a full month.

Chanel Huile de Jasmin

Maison Chanel launches Huile de Jasmin in March 2017, based on the original formula created by Gabrielle Coco Chanel back in 1927. Huile de Jasmin is a revitalizing facial oil with jasmine extract, formulated to make the skin look luminescent. It represents a reinterpretation of the precious emblematic treatment from the history of the house and from Coco’s own beauty counter.


The oil nourishes and repairs the skin, made of many, mostly natural oils and ingredients. The formula transmits its revitalizing properties to the skin, providing comfort and elasticity. Jasmine oil from Chanel’s own fields in Grasse is the main ingredient, paired up with camellia, limnathes alba and jojoba oil. The jasmine that is used is collected by hand on the day of its emergence to preserve all its properties.


The facial oil provides a moisturizing and strengthening effect, protecting the skin’s barrier and provides it with comfort and suppleness. In addition, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Maison Chanel did a clinical evaluation on 33 women to test the product. The results are:

  • The skin looks immediately brighter: + 22% . Day after day, it increases its luminosity: +31% after one month.
  • Wrinkles and expression lines are less visible. The skin is visibly smoother: + 34%.
  • The skin is hydrated and protected. The complexion shines naturally, sublimated by a subtly satin finish.

You can use Huile de Jasmin daily or as a cure treatment, according to the needs of your skin. It can be used directly on the clean skin, under a serum or a cream, for women who feel their skin is tired and lacks vitality, or combined with a cream, for women looking for additional comfort in a single application, or even with a foundation, for a touch of luminosity.



The ultimate chic packaging screams luxury, reminiscent of the original one from the 1920s. The product is (sadly) a limited edition.  It will only available on and in Chanel’s own boutiques from March 2017. A 50 ml bottles will be around $120.
