OMG, have you seen Anna Sui’s Disney make-up!

Anna-Sui-Disney-Asos 2

This could well be the cutest beauty packaging of the year. Anna Sui’s Minnie Mouse nail polish bottle, bow palette and lipstick are quite gobsmacking. And in the case of the lipstick, almost ununsable. I mean, smoosh that bullet into your lips? Way to ruin the effect! Continue reading

Buy it now: my go-to winter skin boosters

Peter-Lindbergh

Ugh, now the clocks have gone back, I’m bracing myself for the winter blues. Apart from depressing mornings and a mega craving for sugar and junk food, winter brings out the worst in my skin.  Here are three products I swear by for their skin-boosting and mood-enhancing properties:

Chanel’s trade secrets and new releases

Chanel-Vitalumiere-satin-fluid Chanel-vitalumiere-compact-douceur

If you’re a fan of Chanel’s Vitalumiere foundations, last week saw some new updates. First, its Vitalumiere Fluid (top left), a very pleasant satin-finish liquid foundation, is now available in Beige 70 and Beige 80. I really like this foundation, it gives just enough coverage for my verging-on-dry skin and it’s good to see the range of shades expanding.

Next, just in time for the winter blahs is the new Chanel Vitalumiere Compact Douceur (top right), a light yet creamy powder base that adds luminosity to greige-looking skin. Continue reading

Jo Malone London’s Christmas crackers are here!

I don’t know who first came up with the concept of Christmas decoration-themed beauty goodies but give that person a medal. Retailers and consumers alike can’t get enough of the beauty booty-filled advent calendars, crackers and tree decorations to give or to keep.

We’ve already seen Selfridges’ advent calendar for this year and British Beauty Blogger has the Lancome ‘Christmas cubes’ and Clarins crackers on her site. Tomorrow Today sees Jo Malone London’s much anticipated festive fare arrive on counter in the UK. Continue reading

SPOILER ALERT! Selfridges advent calendar and Net-a-Porter beauty box

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Selfridges-Advent-Calendar

It seems Brits love a beauty box, but whether that’s for the handy miniatures or for the Christmassy sense of unpacking all the goodies I’m not quite sure. Anyhoo, here’s two you need to know about if you’re a beauty box fan.

First, Selfridges has launched its Christmas advent calendar (above), which is bigger and better than ever before. SPOILER ALERT: The contents are plentiful and include the following… Continue reading

Buy it now: Tom Ford Plum Japonais and Tom Ford London

Tom Ford is a funny brand. I can totally leave the RTW (and truthfully I didn’t much care for Tom Ford at Gucci) but the beauty is a whole different beast. Have you been to the store in Sloane Street yet? You must. It’s a properly luxurious experience where you’ll get fussed and fawned over even if you’re just spritzing a tester. And if you’re going to buy one of Ford’s not-cheap fragrances, then this is the place to go for the full, added-value experience. Continue reading

Men’s grooming roundup: Stefano Tonchi, Tom Ford, Acqua Di Parma, Shay & Blue, Mr Porter

STEFANO TONCHI ON INTO THE GLOSS
Stefano-Tonchi

Oh my nosiness knows no bounds. I love Into The Gloss for its snoops into the bathroom cabinets of fashiony women and now it’s been sniffing around the men’s grooming shelves too. Here’s W magazine’s Stefano Tonchi’s thoughts on his grooming routine (Hmmm, Only 6 products but still)… Continue reading

Marketing the modern muse

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

At the press launch of Modern Muse back in May, it was made clear that this was a major launch. The biggest Estee Lauder fragrance launch for ten years in fact. And boy, have they promoted it. I’ve been to a launch, a dinner (when I sat next to master perfumer Harry Fremont himself – what a sweetheart), there’s been the ad campaign with Arizona Muse, a Facebook app to celebrate your own muse, and now a short film.

The film, by Steven Sebring is a gentle portrait of Arizona Muse, talking about her life in London, New York and Massachusetts. I love how it’s shot and how intimate and personal it feels (don’t miss the Super-8 moment at the end). Continue reading

Buy it now: Three colours red

MAKE-Maraschino-cherry-Disneyrollergirl

Here are three killer red lipsticks I’ve been trialling that I can recommend if you love strong Hollywood reds in posh packaging…

First is Rouge Néon (shade 50) from Yves saint Laurent’s Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre line (below, £25). This is a lush vermillion red that has an extremely flattering finish thanks to the addition of yellow, white and pink gold pearls. It’s definitely not pearlised though; the effect is more a subtle ‘lit from within’ radiance that is YSL’s DNA. Obviously, the gold casing is as fabulous as the lipstick inside, I never get bored with it. Buy it here and here
