Enjoy your summer with a little help from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics!



A bit of history about Ms. Bobbi:

As a freelance makeup artist in the 90’s, Bobbi was dissatisfied with the unnatural makeup colors that were popular then and set out to introduce a new era of wearable, natural looking makeup –starting with lipsticks. With a simple vision –to provide a range of lipsticks that looked like lips, only better—Bobbi launched her original Lip Color collection: 10 brown-based lipsticks that looked great worn alone or could be mixed and blended. Today, the makeup guru continues to expand her famous lipstick category with the introduction of 32 new Lip Color shades. With both new and back-by-popular-demand shades, this collection features everything from nudes to brights to bold. My favorite shade is Warm Apricot. Find your perfect shade of creamy, non-drying, non-greasy lipstick!

A Real Lip Color Extravaganza!




Bobbi’s new “Surf & Sand” Collection 

This new collection includes the ultimate summer beauty essentials for creating an effortlessly chic beach babe beauty look. Featuring sheer washes of color from sandy neutrals to surfy turquoise to sunset pinks, this collection is as simple and sexy as it gets. My “go to” everyday shade is Sunny Gold which works well as a highlighter or a light sweep all over your lid for daytime. It really makes my hazel eyes pop.

Estée Lauder- Summer Calls for Bright Eyes & Youthful Glowing Skin

Breakthrough New Eye Treatment Maximizes the Power of Night to Re-Ignite the Youthful Light of Eyes


Eyes are where a woman’s light comes from and Estée Lauder Scientists’ latest cutting-edge research initiatives reveal that a look of more light can give new youthfulness to eyes; therefore, light equals youth. Light is a profound reflection of what’s happening deep within skin, and, therefore, is an ultimate measure of skin’s overall youthful look.


When eyes lose their youthful glow, they look tired and dull. Understanding that chronological aging and environmental assaults, such as pollution, can dim the eye area’s natural youthful light, Estée Lauder developed our most advanced eye treatment ever. Introducing NEW Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Recovery Complex II, a formula for eyes that maximizes the power of night to re-ignite the youthful light of eyes. Advanced with exclusive ChronoluxCB™ Techonology and featuring all of the powerful repair and prevention of revolutionary Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II face serum, NEW Advanced Night Repair Eye takes advantage of the restorative power of night to repair the look of damage that can age delicate eye-area skin, which is 40% thinner than facial skin.


Through addressing every key visible sign of aging around the eye – including fine lines, crow’s feet, dark circles, puffiness and uneven texture – the multi-benefit formula restores the youthful light to eyes, for every woman, every day. In fact, NEW Advanced Night Repair Eye is proven to visibly improve all key parameters that contribute to eye youthfulness.1 Lines, wrinkles and puffiness appear diminished. Eyes look more youthful, vibrant and brighter, less fatigued.



Cosmetic leaders in “skincare repair,” Estée Lauder Scientists have discovered that look of light is the secret to younger-looking skin. Light is a profound reflection of what’s happening deep within skin and, therefore, is the ultimate measure of skin’s overall quality and youthfulness. Leveraging over 10 years of research, Estée Lauder Scientists discovered key eye area parameters – both visible and biological – that contribute to skin’s overall youthful, luminous look. These parameters include under eye lines, texture, puffiness, crow’s feet, lines and wrinkles and radiance. The more moisturized, smoother and firmer skin is, the more light will emanate from within and the more youthful the eye area will look. Unfortunately, skin’s natural light and youthful look diminish with fatigue, age and exposure to pollution.

Panthère de Cartier Collection Carries On Her Reign


Ring Panthère de Cartier Collection Yellow gold ring, onyx, tsavorite garnets Credit: Tania & Vincent © Cartier

In 1914, Cartier created its first panther-spot motif on a wristwatch. Inspired by nature, its black and white abstract onyx and diamond paving inaugurated the use of flecking in jewellery and pioneered the contrasts of the future Art Déco style. That same year, Louis Cartier ordered a “Lady with panther” from French illustrator and painter George Barbier.

The watercolour, initially used as an exhibition invitation, was then used by the Maison for its advertising.

A panther woman was taking shape… but who was she? A predator, an Amazon, a mystery, a fantasy, a muse, half-woman-half-feline?
What we do know is that she stood out, claimed her independence and freedom, and marked her existence with a wild and beautiful femininity as only she could.

For Cartier, the first panther woman was Jeanne Toussaint, Louis Cartier’s close collaborator and muse. She was original, creative and demanding.

She was an inventive source of inspiration who approached the feline step by step, revealing its jewelled coat through an impression of spotted motifs before giving it body and life. Cartier’s high jewellery creative director in 1933, in the eyes of her major clients she enveloped herself in an indisputable aura of elegance by dictating the famous “Toussaint style”.

Because it makes its mark, its appearances instantly distinguish a style. The 2014 Cartier panther is once more distinguished by its phenomenal and modern presence.
Even on its own, its charm is arresting.

Figurative, graphic, playful, gentle, wild, sensual, ferocious or kinetic, it offers a range of surprises, loyal to its audacious and sophisticated jewellery aura.
Fifty-six pieces. A collection which the heroine reigns over with absolute feline essence.

Magnificent as a “vanity” ring, like an x-ray of itself in a gold skeleton.
Devastating when it gives an elegant and slender shock from one finger to another.

Op Art in its absolutely cellular version… A jewellery pattern of diamonds and onyx spots without body or head on a tribal bracelet.

Jewels made with tremendous know-how that take their creative vitality from the energy of Cartier’s totemic wild cat.
