Anna Sui Autumn 2012 Collection - Rebel Girl

Anna Sui's representation of her very own Rebel Girl:

“This season is all about the Eyes, and the theme of my new collection is REBEL GIRL! I adore every one of my fans, but have a special connection to all to the ‘Rebel Girls’ out there! I consider myself one too; I always value a free spirited attitude, and having a mind of your own. What I love most about this new eye shadow collection is the vast array of shades offered and the different textures that work so well together. You can create lots of different looks, whether you want to be a rock star or a demure young lady. There are fun glitter and metallic colors in the cream shadows and vivid, beautiful shades in the powder. What really thrills me most about the collection is that we have eight new shades of purple! Everyone knows that’s my absolute favorite signature color!”

Anna Sui Cosmetics has selected top model Chrystal Copland to star in the Advertising Campaign.

The collection features eyeshadows in powder, moist powder and cream form (RM 40), eyeshadow palettes (RM 35), pencil eyeliners (RM64) and limited edition lip rouges (RM 88). The collection will be available in August 2012 in major departmental stores.

Orchidée Impériale Skin Care by Guerlain

The Guerlain Orchidarium Basic Research Laboratory underlined the extraordinary biological potential of the star orchids in the New-Generation Imperial Orchid Molecular Extract – the powerful secret of longevity at the heart of the Guerlain Orchidée Impériale range. The research also shows very valuable benefits of the Vanda teres orchid to fight against skin aging.

When Guerlain created the New-Generation Imperial Orchid Molecular Extract, it offered a new power to enhance women’s beauty: the power to “turn back cellular time”. With Orchidée Impériale Fluid, Guerlain combined the exceptional performance of its new, highly acclaimed Orchidée Impériale cream with a specially developed texture, to provide a precise response to the needs of the most demanding skin. This spirit of supreme performance and sensoriality is at the heart of a new, alternative Orchidée Impériale formula, designed to satisfy all the needs of dr y skin.

Together, the Cream, Fluid - and now the Rich Cream - form a New-Generation range of complete age-defying skincare products, which meet the demands of all women - in terms of both texture and results.
