I’m big on lipliners and these are affordable, retract (I hate sharpening) and can be used to line or fill lips, they are the perfect blend of pointed matte but still creamy enough for a comfortable glide. I haven’t had a chance to swatch these out but they are beautiful!

New 2017 Pirelli Calendar by Peter Lindbergh Unveiled

The 2017 Pirelli Calendar has been revealed and spoiler: it’s amazing. Shot by one of my favorite photographers, the iconic, Peter Lindbergh, this calendar conveys “personality, sensitivity, and the guts to be yourself.” While the photos are incredible so is the fact that Lindbergh is the first in the industry to have shot three editions of this infamous Calendar. The Pirelli Calendar, which has been produced yearly since launching in 1963 has previously been shot by big industry names including Helmut Newton, Steven Meisel and Annie Leibovitz and has featured so many iconic models and celebrities. 

The 2017 star studded edition features the likes of Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, and other swoon worthy big screen names. The result was forty portrait and ambient photos taken in Berlin, L.A., New York, London and the French beach of Le Touquet.

Peter Lindbergy hosted an intimate discussion and cocktail party for the release during fashion week at Cipriani’s in NYC. I can’t tell you how serendipitous and exciting it was to meet him — of course it was outside the event when I was catching a cab home. He was mobbed at the party with fans, and frankly, I was too nervous to introduce myself until I found him next to me waiting for his car. Even through our picture is blurry, I don’t care, I was so incredibly excited to meet him. Especially since my friend Dan flew early from LA to come to the event with me. (He’s literally Peter Lindbergh’s #1 fan). Needless to say this was one of the highlights of my fashion week.

Ole Henriksen Gets a New Look (And Collection!)

Today, Ole Henriksen reveals his new look and as part of the relaunch has added a new Balance Collection, designed to control oil and refine pores without stripping skin. In addition to this completely new collection designed to care for oily skin, each product has been repackaged to reflect Ole’s Scandinavian heritage and has reorganized from 10 collections to 4, clear and color-coded product lines based on skincare concerns to it’s easy to shop.

The collections are as follows:

  1. The Truth Collection – brighting, anti-aging and all day hydration (orange packaging)
  2. The Transform Collection – evens skin tone and texture (blue packaging)
  3. The Nurture Collection – intensely hydrates and nourishes dry and sensitive skin (purple packaging)
  4. The Balance Collections – Ole’s new collection that controls oil and refines pores without stripping skin (green packaging).

A little more on Ole Henriksen — beyond he’s one of the most lovely and genuinely positive and happy people I’ve ever met — at 65 he literally glows inside and out! He opened a spa in Beverly Hills in 1975 and quickly developed a celebrity clientele and cult following which led the launch of his product line in 1984. In 2011 Kendo, a brand incubator of LVMH (same brand that also backed Bite Beauty, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Kat Von D and the new Rihanna Fenty makeup collection launching this fall!) acquired the brand. And today they have joined forces to reimagine the Ole Henrikson collection still exclusive to Sephora. All of the brands favorites are still in the collection, including their mega award winners, Truth Serum, Sheer Transformations Perfecting Moisturizer and Power Peel!

Going for the Rose Gold with Kevin Murphy

I’m so obsessed with Kevin Murphy!!!!! I’ve admired his products for so long but getting the opportunity to spend the afternoon with him took my admiration to the next level. What an absolutely delightful person, who completely lived up to his hype. After months of struggling with my hair color — I loved being blonde but the colorists I was working with a few months back kept giving me weird highlights at the root and the intense black root to blonde highlight was not working for me at all. Expecting full well to walk into my color appointment with Kevin and ask for an ombre or some way of fixing the disaster that was my hair, he alongside his amazing Director of Color, Kate Reid had something else in mind: rose gold.

So in an unexpected turn of events, I got rose gold hair, with these beautiful highlights that gave my color and hair so much dimension.  I am obsessed! Kevin Murphy has such unique colors and vision, and this was the perfect tone for me. I love how they worked with me to create a custom color that worked for my skintone. Kevin Murphy also launched 5 new products for spring, four of which are available now with another launching in April. See below for details!

The five new products include:

1 & 2: SMOOTH.AGAIN.WASH (shampoo) and SMOOTH.AGAIN.RINSE (conditioner), which is targeted to soften, thick, frizz-prone hair and make it more manageable. It’s a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that closes the hair cuticles so strands are smooth and shiny without weighing hair down.

3. Powder Puff (volumizing powder) – If you’re a Kevin Murphy DOO.OVER fan, that is the spray version of this product. It’s a volumizing powder with hold and texture and it instantly creates that 60s volume look without having to tease your hair. It has some grit to it but you only need to tap a little bit.  This isn’t a product that dissolves and is weightless it’s in there to do a job, and it does it well!

4. LEAVE-IN.REPAIR, which is great for all hair types and is super light and helps add strength and reduce breakage. It helps nourish dry, brittle hair and great for anyone like me that does a lot of chemical services.

5. SHIMMER.ME.BLONDE. Launching for spring (April to be more exact), this is like skincare or a highlighter for your hair–think luminous skin but for hair, so luminous hair goals. As you can see from the top to bottom picture it’s violet colored, and when shaken it creates this really pretty, prismatic shimmer that reflects light. To use, shake the bottle and walk through like you would perfume (if you were spritzing it on your hair instead of neck). The idea is when you spritz it, it’s like adding 100 violet mirrors reflecting light so it adds more dimension and your blonde looks really crisp and reflective. This product is ideal for blondes (grey hair works too) that feel like their color is getting dull or lifeless.
