At First Blush

The Khaite image got me thinking about blusher—Charlotte Tilbury makes some of the best.

Lashfood

My friend swears by Lashfood products, especially the mascara. I’m going to test drive the ‘Lash Transformation System’ and will let you know.

Bastide

Frederic Fekkai and his wife Shirin von Wulffen not only purchased and restored a beautiful home in Aix-en-Provence, the French beauty guru’s hometown, the couple also bought and relaunched the Provencal beauty line Cote Bastide. Now simply Bastide, the products, which are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and silicone, are made locally with ingredients sourced solely from the region. At a breakfast yesterday in Tribeca, the intoxicating fragrances, olive-oil soaps, vegetable-wax candles in blown-glass jars, creams, and crystals were on display—the packaging is beautiful, too.

Here Comes The Sun

Even as a child I hated sitting in the sun and now it’s paid off. However, I do like having a little color and it may be time to up my bronzer game. Suggestions welcome.

Facial Oil

To my way of thinking, it feels counterintuitive to put oil on my face. However, I’ve been using a repair serum from my dermatologist and love the results–I’m a complete convert. I’ll bet Chanel’s Huile de Jasmin revitalizing facial oil is good, too.

Charlotte Gainsbourg x Nars

Musician, actress, Parisian cool-girl, and daughter of famous parents– Charlotte Gainsbourg collaborated on a makeup line with Nars and Vogue has the scoop in the April issue.

Microneedling

\

Last year when I posted that I was on the hunt for a miracle in a bottle to plump the lines around my mouth, a few readers left comments about microneedling. I asked my doctor about it, but he recommended fillers. Fillers are not my thing, so I’m revisiting microneedling. If anyone has tried a derma-roller, please let me know if it works.

Suzanne Koller on ITG

Into The Gloss just posted an interview with Suzanne Koller, fashion director of M Le Monde. I love getting a peek into the super-stylist’s Paris apartment and to read about her beauty must-haves.

Coco Rouge

I’ve been cleaning up kic– deleting tons of outdated posts, etc, and I came across this story on Vanessa Traina’s essentials and the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick caught my eye. I’m going to Chanel PR on Monday to see a couture presentation and a bit of lipstick would be a good idea.
