Beauty News: Chanel Rouge Coco Baume

20 Jan

Chanel, Rouge Coco Baume, $32.50, http://www.chanel.com

Luxury lip balm may sound ridiculous to some but when the weather ravages your lips to the point where you can wear your favorite lipstick or gloss, you’ll be happy to shell out big bucks for serious lip treatments. Chanel has decided to throw their hat in the ring with a new lip balm that has beauty fanatics buzzing. Coco Rouge Baume glides on smooth and shiny but dries down to a matte finish leaving lips prepped and primed for lip color or even better yet a smooch or two. We adore the clear balm as a lip base or primer and can’t wait to toss this pricey lip treatment into our Tory Burch cosmetics bag when we hit the sandy beaches of Miami this summer.

This five-star candle is a potent but exquisite blend of Nashi pear, white Cattleya orchid, pomegranate, goji berry, blonde birchwood, pink pepper, coconut, and leather. The candles won’t be available to the masses until April so you’ll have to wait a little while but trust us, these gorgeous candles are well worth the wait!

Louis Vuitton Under the Creative Direction of Marc Jacobs Will Launch It's First Fragrance in 30 Years!

Wow, we can’t even get our heads around the fact that mega-luxury brand Louis Vuitton hasn’t launched a fragrance in over 30 years! So now that we’ve gotten over that shock, it’s time to delve into the details. Louis Vuitton is working with Jacques Cavalier-Belletrud, a master within the fragrance industry with such accomplishments as developing Jean Paul Gaultier Classic, Stella by Stella McCartney and Dior Addict. What makes this fragrance debut even more delicious is the fact that Marc Jacobs is the creative force behind Louis Vuitton and a master at launching fragrances for his own label (Daisy, Lola and Bang- hello!). With that said, we can only anticipate what this new launch will smell and look like. All we know for certain is that it will be truly luxe!
