Buckle up: it’s a BIG Fashion Pulse Flash this week! As I scurried all over the town to check out the latest, exciting collection and product launches, I realized that each and every one of them was worth sharing with you! I hope you enjoy it!Classic skateboarding label Vans has teamed up with Madewell for a rendition of its classic slip-on shoe in a stark black paisley design, printed on a canvas white slip-on sneaker. At Madewell you can also shop other Vans styles, such as a washed cotton sneaker in black, rust, pale green or vibrant blue, an all-white high top, or even a shiny silver metallic slip-on. The collab is subtle, yet on-point for both of the brands’ customers, including you and me! Shop the styles now, in-store, and online, which range in price from $47-$60 (the paisely slip-ons are $55). Speaking of classic canvas for your feet…the new Keds x kate spade new york summer 2014 lineup is now available! Taking the signature Champion and Rally silhouettes and adorning them with their best accessory, new prints, infuses the ease of Keds with the covetable style of Kate Spade into one product- score! The limited edition, limited quantities shoes retail for $75 and are available online at both brands’ sites.
Having acne may really, really suck, but “backne” is equally as bad, if not worse, since there aren’t too many products out there that cater to the issue. Luckily, Clearasil is highly cognizant of the issue, and has created the Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Lotion, which includes 2% salicylic acid and can be used on the back, chest, AND face, reducing the pimple size in four hours. so let those necklines plunge and feel confident that your skin will look it’s very best, in just a matter of hours. Available now, it retails for about $7.49 and can be purchased at mass food and drug retailers nationwide.
I’m always skeptical of the arrival of a new eye product, HOWEVER I do have to admit that the Kiehl’s Since 1851 Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is THE business. It’s so good that I was planning on sharing it with my mom, but after trying it, I’m definitely keeping it all to myself (sorry ma!). This is certainly the most creamy eye area formulation I’ve ever tried, which utilizes a water-in-oil emulsion, dual-hydration system with the use of avocado, known for nourishing qualities and repair of moisture and vitamins A,B, and D, combined with Shea Butter for added hydration. A little goes a long way, and the price is just right at $28.50, available at Kiehls.com and at fine retailers nationwide.
New from NARS! The brand’s ultra sleek lip gloss has now been reformulated, with a new applicator and some cool new ingredients, like sea lavender to help combat aging, and a new clear tube for clarity of color in and out of the bottle. Expect a lineup of 30 hues of lip glosses, with seven of those being brand new, and 23 comprised of tried-and-true favorites. Shop NARS lip glosses at Sephora and department and specialty retailers, as well as online at NARSCosmetics.com and at NARS boutiques.
Since I mentioned the boutiques… my friends at NARS just shared that a second NYC flagship is opening May 16th at 971 Madison Avenue (between 75th and 76th Streets). If you’re in the area, please be sure to stop by and check it out.
