Les nouveautés make up et soin de Chanel

Coucou mes chats, J’ai reçu il y a quelques jours les nouveautés make up et soin de Chanel et je souhaitais vous en parler de quelques unes que j’ai bien appréciées. A commencer par cette beauté de blush rose intense à l’effet bonne mine Joue Contraste Hyperfresh, qui apporte de la légèreté et de la fraîcheur aux pommettes. En ce qui est de vernis, surprenant par son effet métallique, le longue tenue Liquid Mirror fait référence aux reflets argentés créés par la pluie sur les bâtiments; et à l’effet inédit, le Pink Rubber est un vernis en édition limitée, inspiré du caoutchouc pour un effet mat. Le rouge à lèvres Rouge Allure Ultraberry, avec un coeur de rose brique, vachement pigmenté. Et, pas si nouveau que cela, mais pour moi assez nouveau, La Solution 10, qui apaise, déstresse et protège les peux sensibles (à tester encore, je vous en donnerai de nouvelles). Un grand merci à Jinling Xu pour les photos et à Eden Tonda pour la beauté! Chemise blanche pin-up  JOUR/NE Pull noir UNIQLO

A healthy night in Biotherm’s company

I am proud to say that one of the first creams I started using in my life was from Biotherm. I loved its consistency from the start, the smell and the sea maritime concept won me over early. This week I went to know some of its brand releases and I was blown away by the preoccupation that they have to always offer the best technology and discoveries in cosmetology in its beauty products. The launch of these products and the concept of Biotherm talk are inspired by a modern and connected woman that leads a healthy and fit way of life, so the hashtag of the night was #livemore. So nothing more appropriate than the yoga master Amanda Bisk herself, a super positive woman with a body of goddess! She gave us the pleasure of a free yoga class at the end of the event. What an incredible opportunity! As for the beauty releases, they are those here: BIOTHERM HOMME: – Aquapower  – Oligo Thermal Care – (It hits the stores in August in Brazil) – T-Pur (It …

Natura launches cute Christmas beauty sets

I’ve alread talked about Natura here and here, this brazilian beauty brand that I know since I was a child (everyone I knew at the time had a shampoo or a bar soap at home). You must know they have offices in Paris which is a kind of comfort to me cause it makes me feel close to my roots <3 For Christmas holidays they’ve launched cute beauty sets with Brazilian ingredients from Amazon rainforest as, for instance, nuts, buriti, passion fruit and capitu in form of hand creams and body oils, which smells so good as the natural fruits do. If you want to make a Christmas gift to someone who needs a Brazil spirit, you should try these babies! You can shop them here: Hand cream trio Chocolat hand cream

Pop my day: beauty on demand

What about getting make up, manicure, hairdressing services at your place, at the time you want? Now this is possible if you live in Paris, and I’ve tried it! The secret of this magic is an app named Pop My Day, and you can choose among all these beauty services (the prices are maybe 10 euros expensiver than if you go to a beauty centre) and the time you want the professional come in. I’ve chosen the « fashion make up » (so I could show you a little tutorial!). You register you credit card, pay and ops it is done! After that you get a confirmation of your buy with the name of the professional that will pop up at your place. The name of my beauty artist was Eden Tonda and she has done already Vogue, GQ, Paulette editorials. A young and friendly girl who came up at 11h at my door. After talking a little bit, we’ve decided to do a brown smoky eye (that’s the story of my life actually!) and nude lips …

Rituals: inspired by hapiness of small things

Have you ever heard about the dutch beauty label Rituals? It is all about the ideia that happiness is made of small things. The ideia of transform our everyday routine into moments of pure pleasure through beauty products. Can you imagine life enjoying a scented hot bath, a special cup of tea or doing the dishes with more pleasure? That’s it, making ourselves more beautiful is also a good moment, not an obligation. What is cool about that label is that their collections are inspired by Eastern traditions: each ancestral wisdom is combined with selected ingredients that offer their own benefits. They associate these ancestral knowledge to innovative technologies to create a unique way to enjoy the benefits of these traditions. That allow us, for example, to recreate a real steam in our bathroom, to balance our yin and yang energies with our Tao range and immerse ourselves in the Ayurvedic philosophy with teas, body scrubs and aromatic oils. Important details: their products are never tested on animals (they are tested by volunteers), their packaging are …

Dior: a three-episode documentary about essences

I’m in love with « The Search for Essences », a Dior three-episode documentary about the quest of essences of their fragrances. Each film is a journey to a material, a land of inspiration, punctuated by meetings and exchanges around traditions and know-how. So poetic, beautiful and informative <3 Take this trip with me and watch them! [Episode 1] MAYFLOWER IN GRASSE « The Mayflower is the queen of flowers from Grasse cradle. We must ensure that expertise is not diluted. » François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator The first one is about Mayflower in Grasse, a unparalleled flower and Dior perfumer-creator François Demachy knows it. Having been brought up in the area, he knows the value of this flower endowed with a powerful fragrance that has become extremely rare. For Dior, Demachy found two people who shared a passion for the unique terroir of Grasse, where sea and mountain act to allow spring flowers with exceptional features. The « Domaine de Manon », under the direction of Carole Biancalana, and the « Clos de Callian », to Armelle Janody.

Niche parfums: Le Labo and its magical laboratory

Who know a little bit about niche parfums? I’ve known more about them when I’ve started to write articles about the subject to Brazilian magazines (yes, you know I am a journo, right?) And then, I felt in love with these rare fragrances (called also exclusive, confidential, etc). But what is that exactly? Niche parfums are made by perfumers who have much more liberty than the ones who elaborate best sellers fragrances, with a free choice of nobles and quality notes. That’s why exclusive fragrances can be very different and exotic, far from sweet and flowered ones we know in the market. Le Labo is a good example of niche brand: they have a laboratory inside their shops so you can mix ingredients as you wish, making your own personal scent. They have this apothecary style and you feel like you were a true druggist choosing your medicines. My favorite ones? Vanilla and Bergamot scents, I can wear them everyday without being nauseate (which can happen with other parfums). They have candles, shower gel, bar …

Caudalie presents new patent from vines

I’ve discovered Caudalie, this natural cosmetic brand based on grapes properties, some years ago cos’ they are very popular in drugstores in Paris. Nice packings, green attitude, fair prices. Known for its green and pro animals cause, and especially for its founder, Mathilde Thomas (who is very active and created a hornbook named ‘Cosm’étique’, which follows various articles respecting and preserving nature while producing her products), it drew my attention quickly. Famous for their natural patents Caudalie launched recently a new patent, Resveratrol Lift, which means vine resveratrol with micro hyaluronic acids, a powerful combination that results in naturally overproduction of hyaluronic acid in our cells, with firming, resculpting and anti wrinkle effects. All products are in formula « open »; it means that they can change and improve it constantly. I am willing to test my products, I’ll get you posted about results in my skin, folks! <3 Learn a little bit more about this patent here: Caudalie: http://fr.caudalie.com Shop Caudalie best-sellers: Caudalie kit
