Vogue's July Issue
The cover is exquisite and makes up for all the celebrity covers that have been lackluster. Not that Testino had a challenge.
Natalia Vodianova is a great beauty.
The makeup is all by Lancome.
The products used were:
Photogenic skin Illuminating Makeup, Color Design Eyeshadow in Mochaccino Matte and Gaze Shimmer, Le stylo Waterproof eyeliner in Cafe, Cils Design Pro Mascara in Black, Le Crayon Poudre in Brunet, Color Fever lipstick in Violet Fashion, Not Victim and Vernis Magnetic Nail Lacquer in Molten.
I might have to cave on Molten Nail Polish and the lippie before fall begins.
Page 101 is a great blurb on Aerin Lauder and the latest fragrance from Lauder.
I was lucky to sniff the new Estee Lauder fragrance at my local Saks counter. Our Lauder SA, James, had a tester and was quite willing to let us douse ourselves.
Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia is gorgeous. The tuberose is tame and not overpowering like Fracas. The gardenia note is creamy and tart at the same time.
Not to toot my own horn...but it smelled fabulous on me. Great sillage and lasting power.
The parfum bottle and refillable compact will feature semi-precious stones inspired by a Josef Hoffman brooch
James said that there will be other private collection fragrances including an oriental.
In exciting news, James will actually get to meet Aerin Lauder at a Lauder shindig.
I am all kinds of jealous.
The fragrance will be available at Saks.
On page 102 Vogue is predicting deep purple as the "must have" shade for fall.
I believe the color Navy will be the sleeper hit from all the fall nail polish collections.
OPI and Zoya are releasing gorgeous navy shades. This weekend Griffie and Tussah sported navy nails and toes.
Page 109: I received a post card from my local Saks to pick up a free sample of the newest product by La Mer. It is called La Mer Light.
It is a gel cream that helps moisturize in a lighter, summer friendly way.
Did I get a sample?
There were no samples to be had.
I do not know why Saks would send out post cards for free samples that they do not have in stock.
However, James stated that it was beyond fabulous and worth waiting for.
I will wait patiently and try not to bitch.
On page 109 there is a picture of Donatella Versace's perfume collection. She has been collecting since she was 16. The perfume board on MUA drooled over her collection when it was originally featured in Allure. She had everything from Guerlain bee bottles to Bonds. It was the best fragrance collection I had ever seen.
I loved the beautiful tribute for Isabella Blow and the bday wishes to Irving Penn, but my favorite Vogue moment was the photograph of the peacocks from the Poiret exhibit at the MET.
This is on page 163.
A friend of mine saw the staff setting this up and could not get over how beautiful it was.
I am so grateful that I was able to finally see it.
