The famous luxury Swiss brand La Prairie known by its anti-aging treatments has developed for this fall a trilogy of fragrances. After launching their Silver Rain perfume line a while ago, La Prairie is challenging our senses with Life Threads in Silver, Gold and Platinum.
The fragrance collection, composed by Constance Georges – Picot from Cosmo Fragrances, is available in the shops starting this October in 50ml bottles (125$) wrapped in shimmering thread tied to its name – Silver, Gold and Platinum.
I’m in love with La Prairie face and eye creams but I’ve never tried their perfumes. Few days ago I received a sample of Life Threads Silver and my sense were instantly excited. It was a fragrance totally new to my sense, with an incredible romantic and feminine touch, wrapped together into a floral scent. I can consider myself addicted to perfumes since I have a very big collection of fragrances, but this is one fragrance that definitely should not miss from my collection. Continue Reading
It’s up to you if the traces of time are less visible on your face. There are methods which can keep your skin looking young and fresh.
French specialists quoted by “Journal des femmes” offers you 10 life principles, which guarantees a beautiful complexion, for a long time. To be noted that these rules must be applied simultaneously, consistently and with perseverance.
- Healthy and balanced nutrition, rich in fruits and vegetables, as the main source for intake of vitamins and minerals (infinitely better assimilated and more active than those of synthesis, the pill). But fruits and vegetables are not sufficient in the absence of complex sources of antioxidants, zinc (a real doctor for your skin), copper, magnesium, selenium and acids from the Omega 3 and Omega 6 series.
- Sun protection is also an important detail which you need to take into account all year. Using creams with SPF is more than necessary during the summer, but is equally useful during winter, and spring and autumn. In winter, the harmful sun rays are as intense as in the summer, especially if there is snow. In cities full of glass and concrete, solar radiation is amplified. Sun rays produce free radicals which can produce severe and irreversible damage to skin tissue and collagen layer, the true “foundation” of your complexion. In conclusion, the cream against ultraviolet rays, should be used continuously. Do not forget the neck and cleavage! Continue Reading
Sisley has come up with a new collection for Fall-Winter 2009-2010. Baroque Chic Makeup Collection contains amazing colors, so trendy for this fall and designed for a high-quality makeup. I have to say that I love all the colors from this collection, starting with gold, sorbet, burgundy and finishing with plum and I’m happy that I finally found a collection that can keep my level of inspiration high for this cold season.
Sisley Baroque Chic Makeup Collection contains:
Instant Perfect Foundation ($68)
This makeup foundation is a siliconated gel emulsion with a very soft touch, which acts to erase skin imperfections and highlight the eyes. One of its most important benefits is that fine lines and wrinkles are instantly smoothed and filled in. After applying the foundation your complexion will be radiant and even, shine, dilated pores, imperfections and dark areas will be reduced.
Only one in four women consider the expiration date of her cosmetic products, according to dailymail.co.uk. Other women put their health at risk by using cosmetics for several years, even if they start to smell funny or discolor.
Old cosmetics are a real danger to our health. Like the food, cosmetics expire and are dangerous if we are still using them. Over time, following contact with skin, lashes, lips, etc.., cosmetics accumulate bacteria, which multiply and come again on the lips or your skin.
Most women completely forget when they purchased a particular product and use it well beyond the period of validity, which results in the appearance of infections. Most sensitive are the eyes, followed by the lips, whose crazing or cracking of the skin surface contributes to “install” bacteria and occurrence of infections. Continue Reading

These New Soft Touch Shadow Pencils have a creamy texture and versatile functionality to shade the lid, line or highlight the eye. They are very easy to blend, they leave a velvety feel, are smooth, creamy and with a long-wearing formula. The New Pencils can be also used as a base for layering with powder eyeshadow to increase color intensity.
Few days ago I did another Smoky eye makeup inspired by Too Faced Smoky eye palette. This look is called Fashion Smoke and I have to tell from the beginning that I never use blue or green shades for my makeup looks, so this was a real challenge for me.
Maybe it’s only my impression but I don’t like using green and blue eyeshadows since my eyes are green and I try to emphasize them by using other colors like violet, pink, gold or brown shades. A few years ago I was using a lot of black and gray eyeshadows for everyday smoky eye makeup, but if you are bored with the classical black eyeshadow you can try a purple smoky eye makeup which seems to be very trendy this fall and also suits every skin, hair and eye color.
For this Fashion Smoke makeup I used the 3 eyeshadows ( Sugar Cookie, Wicked Green and Midnight ) from the Too Faced Smoky eye palette and my own makeup brushes. Continue Reading
