In celebration of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out, CHANEL Makeup’s Global Creative Director Peter Phillips has created LES KHAKIS DE CHANEL. The three color nail lacquer collection includes Khaki Rose, Khaki Brun and Khaki Vert, which can be worn alone, or combined for a camouflage effect.
Chanel is always at the forefront of polish trends, and if the past success is any indication (do the names Jade, Vamp, or Nouvelle Vague ring a bell?), these will sell out before you can whip out your credit card. Get them while you can!
The collection will be available on September 10th and will retail for $25.00.
Megan Fox swears by Bliss ‘Pore’-fector Gadget Kit ($185), an innovative complexion-improving set featuring a high-tech, dual-action skincare tool and advanced pore-clearing formulas. The tool generates sonic vibrations, which work with Bliss Daily Detoxifying Facial Toner to create micro-jets (fine, steady streams of moisture) that extract impurities and deeply clean clogged skin. The sonic waves help to loosen up debris, creating a cleaner, smoother, more receptive surface, setting the stage for revitalizing antioxidants, hydrators, and the rest of your skincare regime to work effectively. So that’s why Megan always looks flawless!
Charlize Theron reaches for Ole Henriksen Micro/Mini Peel System ($95), a three-step kit containing all you need to exfoliate, refine, peel, and renew your skin in minutes. Almond Polish emulates the benefits of a microdermabrasion, refining skin to smooth perfection. next, a Lemon peel emulates the benefits of an acid peel; lactic and glycolic acid combined with orange and lemon extracts plus aspartic acid go to work peeling and renewing skin. Lastly, a chamomile formula comforts skin after the more active treatment steps. Convenient, effective, and luxurious… no wonder Charlize loves it!
Miley Cyrus is a fan of Kinerase Clear Skin Blemish Dissolver ($39). A blend of proven blemish-fighting ingredients targets imperfections and works quickly and gently to reduce the buildup and blockage that can cause skin problems. The convenient stick with a roller-ball applicator offers precise spot application that helps reduce the appearance of blemishes and other breakout-related skin imperfections, even on the go. Perfect for a jet-setter like Miley!
The line boasts an impressive 50 shades in an assortment of reds, nudes, and pinks [click for color chart] to help every woman find a shade that suits them. Because this can be overwhelming, Make Up For Ever has also developed a special shade selection tool that narrows down hues by both hair color and skin tone, assuring the most flattering shade recommendations. The tool will be available both in-store and online at Sephora.
We used the tool to select two hues based on hair and skin, and were more than pleased with the choices. The selector is pretty much spot-on; both shades selected looked gorgeous on!
