CHANEL Announces the New Face of No.5 for 2009: Audrey Tautou.

CHANEL just sent out a press release with the news of the new face to star in the next No.5 advertising film.

Once again CHANEL has commissioned a director and his muse to write a new page in the love story between the cinema and No.5.


CHANEL has chosen Jean-Pierre Jeunet to direct the next No.5 advertising film, with the French actress Audrey Tautou starring in the leading role. Following the films "Amelie" and "The Long Engagement," this will be the third collaboration between Audrey Tautou and Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

I cannot wait to see it next year.

La Mer SPF 18 Fluid Tint.

I thought that the new SPF 30 Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer from Stila was going to be my tinted moisturizer for this Summer, but I may be wrong. I am currently obsessed with the new one from La Mer. It is La Mer The SPF18 Fluid Tint.


Combining it's almost miraculous skincare formula with a must wear sunscreen and a subtle tint, not only does this tint give your skin a bit of a very natural sun-kissed glow, but it is moisturizing and protecting from the sun.

Fluid Tint absorbs instantly into the skin leaving, while gliding over effortlessly. The color is real and natural, available in three shades: Light, Medium, and Dark. I was using the light shade, but now with a bit of a faux tan, the medium shade blends well with my skin tone.

Like all of the La Mer products, this is far from ordinary.  The company's infamous formula, gemstones absorb light energy transforming it into beneficial "green light" to boost it's anti-oxidant properties.  It also contains photonic spheres that redirect and diffuse light, while light-reactive seaweeds impart natural humectant properties to keep skin moisturized, thus preventing dehydration.

A 1.7 oz. of the SPF18 Fluid Tint is $65, available at La Mer counters  in Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and online at
