Dolce & Gabbana #dglovesfall Makeup Collection for Fall 2015


Dolce & Gabbana has launched #dglovesfall, the upcoming season’s make-up collection, inspired by its Fall/Winter 2015/2016 catwalk presentation.

The beauty look from the Dolce & Gabbana AW15 Show focuses on flawless complexion, bold natural brows, and an array of matte lipsticks in neutral and red hues. Pat McGrath, Dolce & Gabbana’s makeup director, used D&G Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation, and Glow Illuminating Powder Shimmer to recreate the appearance of healthy, luminous skin. The lips were coated in red or beige shades from the Dolce Matte Lipstick range, while some of the models wore the Classic Cream Lipstick in Antique Rose or Purple Passion.

The upcoming range of beauty products focuses on duos of pinks and reds, and natural golden hues. The gorgeous nudes and reds are warped in chocolate and golden shades, joined by warm, enveloping shades of brown and accentuated with lively bursts of purple, yellow, and blue. .

It also features splashes of brighter and more vivid colors such as purple, yellow and blue, inspired by the children’s drawings that featured on the dresses and accessories of the collection.

Introducing YSL’s New Watercolor Nail Polishes

YSL La Laque Couture Splash Tints.jpg

With summer fast approaching, life is about to get simpler: A slice of watermelon becomes the best dessert; you can throw on a dress and sandals and a hat and stroll to your destination; beauty regimens get lighter (good-bye foundation, hello tinted moisturizer with SPF) and brighter. And, though we don’t always think of it, there’s often a newfound ease to our nail strategies.

Take YSL’s limited-edition La Laque Couture Splash Collection varnishes – which are a bit like watercolors for your fingertips that leave the faintest tint behind. Think of each shade like a quick coat of pretty, translucent lacquer, instead of a full-on nail situation, to go along with that lower-maintenance frame of mind.



Brush on a layer of the company’s red (Rouge Wet), magenta (Fuchsia Rain), pink (Rose Splash), or tangerine (Orange Drop), let it air-dry – and be done.

YSL La Laque Couture Splash Collection, $27 each.





Christian Louboutin Beaute launches the ‘Loubi Under Red’

Christian Louboutin  'Loubi Under Red' GIF.gif

Christian Louboutin now provides women with more than one place to promote femininity, as his beauty line – specifically nail polishes – begins to grow.

Following on from the highly publicised launch of Christian Louboutin Beaute’s first iconic capsule collection of nail polishes, the brand is releasing Loubi Under Red, a new state of the art nail tool which allows either a ‘red reveal’ under the nails, or, unique nail art over the nails. The formula is the same as the original Rouge Louboutin Nail Colour; a superior high pigment rich formula for luxe glossy colour that is both long-wearing and chip resistant. The newness comes from the unique and tailored flexible felt tip brush applicator.

The fine, felt-tip pen applicator lets you subtly add Louboutin’s signature red color to the underside of your nails or boldly to your nail surface – similar to the designer’s coveted red soles. This nail color travels to the tip without saturating it, giving you the control and ease to create your own designs. A polish with a long-wearing, chip-resistant formula, it delivers luxe, glossy color in one coat and immense shine in two coats. Its unique applicator can be used as an art brush and a dotting tool to coat on color to the underside of nails and to paint designs on top of nails.

Christian Louboutin Beaute launches the 'Loubi Under Red'

In keeping with the launch, Louboutin has devised a nail art design called ‘Malibu Car’ which was developed by brand consultant Madeline Poole. Malibu Car reminds Mr Louboutin of, ‘a carefree drive in a convertible along the Pacific Coast Highway’.

Transform your nails into art objects with Loubi Under Red. Directions for the Malibu Car manicure:


  • Apply Loubi Primer
  • Apply two coats of La Favorita
  • Draw a line on the middle of the nail using Loubi Under Red
  • Finish with Loubi Gloss



This product is gluten-free and is free of toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP.

Singer Adele was spotted at the 2013 Grammy Awards wearing a pair of Louboutin shoes and a manicure with the underside of her nails colored in red, mimicking the signature red sole of Louboutin shoes. The trend became commonly referenced as ‘The Louboutin Manicure’. True to what makes the Louboutin brand so iconic, a tool was developed that enables women to create the “red sole effect” under their nails while also enabling unique and precise designs over the nails.



Deborah Lippmann’s 15th Anniversary Music Box is a Perfect Present for Polish Lovers


Deborah Lippmann is the go-to manicurist for the most fashionable magazines and renowned fashion houses from Vogue, InStyle, W, Vanity Fair and Elle to Donna Karan, Rodarte, Narciso Rodriguez, Marchesa and Versace to name a few. After years of experience in the industry, her eponymous line of polishes and treatments for nails, hands and feet is as coveted as her incredible talent.

The brand is releasing a special-edition gift set that features 15 sample size polishes that tell the story of the company from their earliest colors to latest collections.

The celebrity manicurist, jazz singer and entrepreneur hopes the box will serve as a reminder to aim high and never give up on your dreams.

True to her singing background, Deborah Lippmann’s 15 year commemoration polish box container is a beautiful music box that plays a song Lippmann and her best friend wrote and performed, called ‘Until Your Dreams Come True’.

Back when she began in 1999 the Deborah Lippmann line of nail polish, she was one of the first to bridge the gap between budget and high-end nail care, and today sits in boutique nail salons and on the shelves of high-end retailers including Barneys New York, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s.

Stars like Sarah Jessica Parker, Cher, Renee Zellweger, Mary J. Blige and Kelly Clarkson have all created colours for this commemorative line, and Lippmann has also worked on some brand collaborations with names such as HBO’s True Blood and the Broadway play Wicked.

Christian Louboutin Cosmetics releases video by David Lynch

Christian Louboutin video by David Lynch GIF.gif

What happens when one of the world’s most iconic shoe labels and top filmmakers come together in the name of nail polish?

Christian Louboutin’s move into the world of nailpolish would also be accompanied by a debut video by David Lynch, best known for perfecting the mystery thriller film genre.

Of course, this being David Lynch, you know you’re not going to get a run-of-the-mill nail polish advertisement. The visual clip has Lynch’s surrealist stamp and might just be the most strange nail polish commercial you’ve ever seen – quite literally out of this world (set in outer space) with the nail polish bottles making up an otherworldly city – ‘Loubiville’.

There’s also quick flashes of painted nails shot in the glamorous style of Mulholland Drive, to a surreal soundtrack. Watch for yourself below….

Welcome to ‘Loubiville’

Azature the most expensive nail lacquer


Azature, a luxury jeweller from Los Angeles California has come out with the world’s most expensive nail polish. At a cool $250,000 USD, only one bottle has been produced of this 267-carat black diamond nail polish.

The black diamond is the ultimate fine jewel (and) one day I thought, ‘why not showcase this style on nails?’ So I developed a Black Diamond Nail Polish with the same attention and quality as my jewellery in order to preserve the elegance of the black diamond’.


Can’t bear the thought of having actual carats chipping off your nails? Knocking a couple G’s off the price is the more reasonably priced $25 USD lacquer in a diamond-shaped bottle, which will be sold at Fred Segal shops in LA.
