More from M∙A∙C - Plush Lash & Lashes.

Attention M·A·C Cosmetic fans - right on the heels of Matte2 (Matte Squared) and Mattene, M·A·C is launching a new must-have mascara, Plush Lash and a makeover of their Lashes line.

mac_plush_lash_tube.jpgPlush Lash ($11): Instantly plump up lashes for over-the-top voluptuous volume. Contains natural humectant sodium hyaluronate, pro vitamin B5 conditions the lash, while the vitamin E derivative acts as and antioxidant. The combination of waxes and film formers allow for super even and smooth application. Double “V” groove design and hollow, tightly interwoven filaments allow product to sit on top of the brush and in the feed grooves providing very good volumizing and quick building performance. Use flat side first to push lashes upward and curl. Separate and comb lashes with longer bristles.

Two shades: Plushblack (a deep black) and Brunette (a rich chocolate brown) will be available on October 5th at

And if you are looking for Lashes, then you will get them.  Acclaimed celebrity lash designer Christina Smith who has designed custom lashes for Hollywood leading ladies including Liza Minnelli, Kate Hudson, Hayden Panettiere and Gisele Bundchen, created 11 exclusive Lash styles with original, new features and streamlined packaging just for M·A·C.

Color – M·A·C Lashes have a unique blend of black and brown natural hairs, so they blend more naturally with your own lashes. Great for even the fairest of lashes.
Clear Band – M·A·C Lashes feature a ground-breaking thin, clear band for easy application and flexibility.  Lashes can move, bend and blend.
Shorter Width – Say goodbye to trimming false lashes to fit. M·A·C's newly designed Lashes have a shorter width, so they fit comfortably to the length of your natural lash line.
Intentional Imperfection – No two lashes are the same or perfectly symmetrical. M·A·C created intentional imperfections in each lash design to create a more natural effect.
The new M·A·C Lashes are packaged in a unique white tray that holds the lashes around a circular post. The post is used for ease of identification, with the left lash on the left side, and the right lash on the right. The white inner tray slides into a clear outer case and locks into place for secure portability. In addition to beautifully displaying the lashes, the new case also allows for easy storage and reuse.
M·A·C Lashes will last through approximately 3-6 wears, with proper care. When removing from packaging or the lash line, gently lift one end and peel off slowly and carefully to keep LashesLashes intact. Store lashes in a cool, dry area as humidity or warm temperatures (often found in the bathroom) may compromise the curl of the lash.

Keeping it Clean at Christopher Kane.

lancome_ck_2.jpgThe extraordinary Gucci Westman, artistic director for Lancôme, is busy once again. She is making up the models over in London for the London edition of Fashion Week.

This week she has worked on the fresh faces for the Christopher Kane show.  And such fresh faces they are.  The look they were going for was natural, Sissy Spacek-like.

Now, going natural is difficult when doing makeup. It is not just a plain, no-makeup face. It takes time, the right makeup palette, and a lot of blending.



Gucci used the following Lancôme products to create the looks seen above: 
Aqua Fusion Creme or Aqua Fusion Tinted Moisturizer
Primordiale Optimum Lip or Color Design Blush in Pret A Plum
Magique Blush in Cinnamon Glaze
Color Design Eye Shadow in Click

I love the barely-there rose colored lip!
