Kiss Me Now
There is nothing more feminine, more romantic, more seductive than sensuous lips.
And nothing says “kiss me” quite the way that red lipstick does.
So Guerlain, which has been adorning women with fine perfumes, extraordinary beauty products and high-end cosmetics for more nearly two centuries, has created the most amorous lipstick ever, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Guerlain KissKiss Shine Bloom Guerlain is the new voluptuous lipstick that is as light and gentle, and just as enduring.
Made from 95 percent natural ingredients, KissKiss Shine Bloom’s rich, hydrating formula is enriched with plumping hyaluronic acid spheres and konjac root extract that penetrate and shape lips.
In parallel, commiphora myrhh oil helps to keep the lip surface moist and smooth for up to 24 hours, while shea butter and winter rose extract nourish and polish lips.
Lips look more naturally beautiful than ever.
KissKiss Shine Bloom lipstick comes in 20, highly saturated, nonstop floral shades that glide on for full coverage with a single easy application.
Guerlain also has out a new Super Aqua-Emulsion Universelle serum that hydrates skin and slows the aging process.
Super Aqua-Emulsion uses a concentrate of organic formulas that moisturizes deeply, offering all-day protection against and correction of the first visible signs of aging.
The creamy emulsion’s advanced technology promotes the flow of water to the heart of the skin, providing immediate rehydration and protection against the risk of future dryness.
Its unique aqua-biotic system helps to visibly strengthen the skin by targeting its ecosystem, nourishing from the inside out.
Applied twice daily, the emulsion leaves skin texture improved and better preserved every day, with a naturally youthful radiance.
Guerlain Super Aqua-Emulsion Universelle, with a light fragrance of fresh dewy notes and aquatic ylang-ylang with jasmine facets, respects skin’s natural pH balance, giving it a gentle, soothing effect.
Super Aqua-Emulsion is particularly suited to skin and sensitive areas that need soothing and comforting with hydration.
And in keeping with the brand’s commitment to purity, 94 percent of its ingredients are naturally derived.
Tiffany Goes Bold
Tiffany & Co. has just announced the debut of its Atlas X, a bolder, more modern update of its iconic Atlas collection.
Inspired by the Roman numerals on the emblemic clock at the Tiffany Fifth Avenue flagship store and evolving the original Atlas designs that launched in 1995, the Atlas X collection is about making your mark in time.
Powerful angles, clean lines and statement silhouettes are united with graphic simplicity in finely crafted 18-karat gold and sterling silver, embellished with pavé diamonds, recreate the Roman numeral motif as a constant reminder to take time into your own hands and treasure what matters most.
“We have elevated the Tiffany motif and created a more daring, more imposing collection accompanied by sparkling diamonds,” said Tiffany artistic director Reed Krakoff of the new line.
“Atlas X pays homage to the spirit of the original Atlas collection and its Roman numeral theme, which is part of our brand’s DNA, but we have updated it with designs tailored to a more contemporary clientele.”
There are three different Atlas X designs within the collection: Closed, X and Open.
The Closed and Open designs exhibit the sharp, razor-like lines that have been the signature of the Tiffany brand since the late 1800s, but heightened in a more daring pattern.
The X designs have tiny encrusted diamonds that give them a sophisticated polish.
The new Tiffany Atlas 10 collection will be available in Mexico starting in March.
The youth-oriented fast-fashion brand Bershka has introduced a new masculine line called Loose Threads.
This casual, don’t-fence-me-in, all white and black collection combines simple, well-defined lines in sharp angles with loose silhouettes and easy-to-wear demins.
Nineties-style cowboy slacks with rustic, layered over-shirts and oversized sweats are geared to the man with a subtle sense of fashion that is suitable for both work and play.
The Loose Threads collection combines natural materials with synthetic touches, acid-treated pieces with stark black and white solids.
Versatile bomber jackets and casual, utilitarian-minded loose fits reflect an era when suits, shirts and office ties are now clichés of a bygone era.
The collection spans a spectrum of conventional leisure slacks carried over from Bershka Hack Denim line with hand-painted pullover shirts to more fanciful abstract designs with a sci-fi 21st century feel.
