Per usual, this week’s Fashion Pulse Flash celebrates where I’ve been, what I’ve put on my body, and the fabulous products you need to know!
NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Giove, one of 12 fabulous new colors, was how I dressed up my lids for this fabulous Friday. Launching July 1st, the new shadows have certainly earned their name, as they can go on dry to provide sheer, luminescent coverage, or with a dampened brush for a more opaque, high-intensity saturation. Would you like to learn how to create a defined eye look? Check out the NARS video, here! (The eyeshadows retail for $29 each, available at NARS boutiques and on narscosmetics.com).
For my second visit to Intimacy’s Madison Avenue location, I was less on the hunt for a bra and more interested in that ever-elusive quest for the perfect swimsuit. Courtesy of the store, I had a swim fit appointment with my friend Bryce,
which resulted in the most painless, absolute easiest swim suit experience I’ve had to-date! I picked a few styles, while my fit expert Jolene helped me zero in on the best cut and size for my body. As I waited in the dressing room, perched on a stool in an Intimacy black silk robe, I wished that all fit experiences, from swimsuits and lingerie to footwear and clothing, could be this seamless.
My final pick? The gorgeous ruched one-piece halter by Brazilian brand Lenny Niemeyer,while Bryce selected this pretty Prima Donna pink bikini! If you’d like to get the same great customer service and fit, book a reservation for a complimentary fit styling at an Intimacy location near you.
Lacoste hosted a French Open viewing party, complete with a variety of activities for the sports fan and the artist alike. While there was a ping pong table set up for guest play, the main attraction was the opportunity to DIY some Lacoste white canvas sneakers! There were a variety of great styles for men and women to decorate, which will look GREAT paired with your tennis whites, or you know, whatever suits your fancy! And, check out the brand’s new Rio collection, inspired by the Brazilian flag’s colors, in honor of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, taking place there this month!
I have to give credit when credit is due: my Mom introduced me to Una Biologicals’ Wonder Balm three years ago, and it has been 100% responsible for retiring my Neosporin, and like products, from usage. It is the ONLY thing that I’ve tried that has truly cured razor burn, along with cuts, scrapes, and even dry skin and cuticles. It truly is the all-in-one, miracle salve, made of natural ingredients and herbal extracts, so you won’t find anything unwanted, such as petro-chemicals, preservatives, petroleum, and artificial fragrances. Instead, heal naturally with organic calendula extract, organic comfrey extract, organic St. John’s wort extract, organic chickweed extract, beeswax, blue chamomile essential oil, tea tree essential oil, lavender essential oil.
It also smells ah-mazing, and comes in a convenient, portable, twist up dispenser for ease of application and so that you always have it on you. It’s kind of that thing that everyone needs to have, and unlike other beauty products that may sit and collect dust, this one will always be in heavy rotation. (And P.S… a Pittsburgher made it!). The Una Wonder Salve retails from $5.50-$10, and is available through the Etsy shop, or at UnaBiologicals.com.
