I recently checked out the latest products from mega luxury brand conglomerate, Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesy, with those that were my absolute favorites, la creme de la creme of luxury beauty items, below:
Les Voilettes Mineral Loose Powder – infused with minerals and has a very cool, exclusive opening system so you never end up with excess powder on your brush (and your face!) Available in five shades, $56, and becomes available in September 2010
Shalimar Eau de Parfum – you are correct if this name sounds familiar; the ‘juice’ has been around since 1925, however the bottle design has been recreated by Jade Jagger (daughter of rocker Mick Jagger). Also available in September, price range $72-$123
Acqua di Parma
Colonia Essenza – The storied Italian brand introduces a new fragrance for fall, arriving in specialty stores come August 13th, called Colonia Essenza, a citrus woody scent, which although is meant for men, I easily could see myself wearing it! Price range: $90-$125. In case you’re not familiar with the brand, it originally launched in Italy in 1916 and sold in men’s tailoring shops meant to be used as a spray on the collars of shirts.
Flower by Kenzo-again this may sound familiar to you, BUT the major difference for fall is that Kenzo is selling an eco-friendly refillable pouch at a lower price point than buying an actual new bottle ($72 for 100ml verus $92 for the bottled version).
Miss Pucci – I had written about the launch of this in FPD’s Tidbits of Fashion News a few weeks ago, but can now verify that the perfume smells absolutely delightful. A both floral and musky fragrance, it slightly reminded me of another beloved favorite, Marc Jacobs Daisy, with top notes of elegant magnolia and Sicilian water lemon. Available in August, price range: ($53- $89)
Le Prisme Eye Quad-I absolutely love the texture and the color palettes of Givenchy eye shadows, and for fall 2010 six new color ‘harmonies’ launch, including Purple Show (my favorite), Midnight Look, Pastel Model, Khaki Egerie, Blue Collection, an Siena Silhouette. Available in August, price: $56
