New from Chanel: Sublimage Serum.

One of the reasons Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard looked so beautiful at the Academy Awards might have had more to do than just the makeup, or the gorgeous looks.

CHANEL celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin who did their makeup for the big night says that she, loves to use Sublimage Serum to prep the face before she applies makeup.


"I always start the makeup process with an application of the Sublimage Serum. I feel it helps to create a smooth, silky and young overall look after I use the base. I usually wait about five minutes and let the serum saturate into the skin, before applying foundation."

When pairing the Essential Regenerating Concentrate, the lightweight, silky serum maximizes the all-around age-fighting benefits of the original cream. The perfect combination of both the serum and cream help to combat wrinkles, loss of firmness, dehydration, lack of radiance, and uneven pigmentation through CHANEL's exclusive Polyfractioning (PFA) technique.

Planifolia (extracted through this PFA process where ultra-pure ingredients are created) is the precious oil that comes from the powerful botanical fruit at the heart of Sublimage, which is now infused into the enriched Planifolia water, making for an even more powerful formula that delivers twice the concentration of the cream.

The 1 oz. airless pump full of this anti-aging wonder retails for $385.00. 

As I have never used anything from the CHANEL skincare line, this looks like it would be a great product to start with. I have read glowing reviews of the Sublimage Cream, so I am sure that this is a wonderful addition to the line.

Sublimage Serum just launched last month at, as well as speciality stores nationwide.

A Look Inside the New Elizabeth Arden Flagship Store.

Last week I wrote about the beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones at the re-opening of the legendary Elizabeth Arden Flagship Store. Today, I have a look inside the store, as well as some information on it's history.


Elizabeth Arden has been on Fifth Avenue since 1910 and in the historic 691 Fifth Avenue location since 1930. The new store brings together the Elizabeth Arden heritage, tradition and elegance in a new, contemporary and innovative style that reflects the brand today.  Just look at that innovative 14-ft high red "ribbon wall" which curves through the space.

I cannot wait to visit the legendary location.
