Christian Louboutin announced the launch of his beauty collection this week; and the first offering in the collection is an assortment of nail polish.

Ironically nail polish is part of the Louboutin story, for early in his career he grabbed nail polish from an assistant to paint the sole of a shoe to make it more decorative and so the legend of the ‘Louboutin red shoe’ was born. 

The nail polish collection launches on August 31 and will include 30 colors in different categories labeled Pops, Nudes and Noirs. The most famous shade will most certainly be Rouge Louboutin (in red of course) currently available online at Saks Fifth Avenue for $50.00; which makes it the most expensive nail polish on the market.

Despite the price; the nail polish is a hit as a recent check of the Saks Fifth Avenue website revealed a special message saying, “Due to high demand, a customer may order no more than 6 units of this item every thirty days.” I find this message interesting since the nail polish formula is created so two coats give the effect of 20 layers of traditional lacquer; so I wonder what people are doing with all of that nail polish?

The Rouge Louboutin bottle and cap are different from the rest of the collection, measuring at eight inches which is the same length of the heel on the Louboutin Ballerina Ultima shoe (featured in a David Lynch collaboration).

My Top 5 Travel Beauty Tips

I carry around my makeup bag everywhere, but most of those products don’t fit the “TSA 3-ounce rule;” so I am unable to take them on a plane which means I worry about looking my best when I arrive to my destination, which is Paris this summer by the way.

So here are my 5 Top Beauty Tips to keep you looking fabulous when your plane lands on your next special trip.

1. Freshen Up – I like to see if makeup has strayed anywhere and clean it up before reapplying my makeup. Handy and compact, i.d. On the Spot eye makeup remover by Bare Essentials is infused with an alcohol-free formula that contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E for sensitive eyes; and it is important to be take care of your skin in the low-humidity, dry-air environment of a  pressurized plane cabin.

2. Brighten Up – Fight those pesky under-eye circles with a little touch-up of concealer. I use Amazing Cosmetics Concealer which is waterproof and perfect for any airport reunions that may have some tears. Remember to apply by starting at the inner corner (the inside of the bridge of your nose) and working to the outer edge of your eye.

3. Sport Some Color – Swipe some color on your lips with Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo. I do a natural look when jetting so I love the  Neutral – Lychee shades in a light and more dramatic pink.

4. Get Polished – Get rid of any shine on your beautiful face with Guerlain Meteorites Travel Touch Voyage Powder.  A smaller version of the iconic Meterorites pearls, this lush powder formula leaves skin matte and translucent and the packaging is beautiful.

5. Get Scented– Before I leave any plane, I like to get scented and dab on my favorite scent.  Lately, I am all about solid perfumes and in particular Tocca’s Bianca fragrance with the wonderful notes of Green Tea, Sugar and Mandarin. Putting on my personal scent gets me centered and refreshed; ready to start my new adventure. Remember to be polite when applying fragrance in public, and here are my Top 5 Fragrance Etiquette Tips.

While you are traveling don’t forget to hydrate and drink plenty of water the day before your trip. And you can always leave your house with a leave-in conditioner in your hair. Wrap it in a scarf, and you’ll get a deep-conditioning treatment while you earn the miles — excellent for combating the overly dry air on board.

I hope everyone’s is having a wonderful summer!

Pacifica Beauty Arrives at Target

I have been a big fan of Pacifica fragrances for a long time. Indian Coconut Nectar is my favorite scent and so I always carry the little fragrance tin in my purse for quick touch ups.  So recently shopping at Target I became pleasantly surprised to discover the Pacifica line in the beauty section.

The hunt for the perfect Mascara is always on my mind, so I had to purchase Pacifica Stellar Gaze in Black Supernova. It makes my lashes full and long and conditions them, and is Paraben free; all in all a good purchase. I have since noticed online there is a waterproof version of the Mascara called Aquarian Gaze that is available only online which I would like to try so Target if you are listening please put it in your stores.

 I couldn’t pass up the Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Butter.  Free from Paraben’s, Phthalate’s and Petroleum, the scent is divine and the colors are subtle.  Phthalate’s are a family of chemicals that have been used for decades to make plastic more pliable and cosmetics smoother in case you were wondering. I purchased the Light Pink and since the color is subtle I use it when I use little makeup on the weekends or am working around the house.

I also had to add the Indian Coconut Nectar “Take Me There” set to my shopping cart.  Well it is my favorite scent and the kit contains a roll-on perfume, full-sized Color Quench Lip Tint and a mini body butter.  All sizes are TSA friendly so they can go on all of my travels, and there is nothing better than refreshing yourself with a friendly scent after being on a long flight.

There is much more to the Pacifica line including: Mineral BB Cream, an Ultra CC Cream (with SPF 17), Mineral Lip Tints, Eye Shadow and more.
