Eminence Vitaskin Targeted Treatments

Eminence recently launched a trio of VitaSkin Targeted Treatments to tackle acne, sagging skin, and hyperpigmentation. These concentrated formulas are to be used sparingly, so a tiny droplet is enough for most situations.

The Bright Skin Targeted Treatment is quite effective at lessening the sun damage I've accumulated so far. Licorice root, punarnava root, turmeric and Swiss alpine plants are the key ingredients behind the brightening cream. I also like to use it on my hands as a spot treatment. It takes about a few weeks to see results. 

Made with their Natural Retinol Alternative, the Firm Skin Targeted Treatment smoothes away fine lines and restores elasticity. Acai berry, botanical hyaluronic acid and snow algae are also added to firm and tighten skin. I love how portable these slim tubes are—it can be a lifesaver when you're traveling. 

Available at all Eminence spa retailers for $65 (0.5 fl oz). For more info: eminenceorganics.com.

Kali Box

Available by monthly subscription, Kali Boxes ($19.95) aim to makes your period a more manageable experience. Arranged in pretty packaging, each box contains certified organic tampons, organic cotton wipettes, and a pampering bath and body treat. Previous boxes have included a sugar scrub or lavender bath salts. 

I tried the Half & Half box, which contains a total of 14 regular and super tampons, 10 individually-wrapped wipettes, and a 2 oz. bottle of rosewater toner. There are options get all regular or all super tampons. Plus, whenever a Kali Box is sold, $1 will be donated to Girl Up, a United Nations foundation that empowers adolescent girls in over 70 countries.

Not ready to subscribe? You can order a sample box for $6.

The Beautiful Mind Series Perfume Volume 2

A follow up to Volume 1: Intelligence & Fantasy, The Beautiful Mind Series continues with Volume 2: Precision & Grace. This time around, creator Geza Schoen collaborated with renowned ballerina Polina Semionova to create this light and poetic fragrance.

While Volume 1 was somewhat unisex in the overall composition, the second one is way more feminine. It opens with a strong bouquet of Egyptian jasmine, mimosa, osmanthus, rose, violet, bergamot and freesia. It soon tapers down to a bright melange of Williams pear, mandarin, lemon and plum. The addition of sandalwood, pink pepper, myrrh, amber, moss and musk substantially ground the perfume, giving it a woody and spicy finish.

Available for $165 (100 ml) at Luckyscent.com and Barneys New York

Dolce & Gabbana Rosa Look Makeup

As part of the Dolce & Gabbana spring makeup collection, Rosa Look 2016 features 8 new shades of the Dolce Matte Lipstick ($37). The non-drying, velvety formula has excellent opacity and color payoff, and each one has the signature powdery rose fragrance.

The Dolce Rosa 222 is a warm rose pink while Dolce Mamma 229 is a muted raspberry. Both shades are super flattering and I can totally see myself in these colors all season.

For a delicate wash of color on the eyes, the Smooth Eye Colour Quad ($62) in Miss Dolce 143 contains subdued shades of mauve pink, nude pink, matte black and pearlescent white. The mauve pink can double as blush powder, which makes this quad even more appealing. 

Available at all Dolce & Gabbana counters, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Clarins True Radiance Foundation

Clarins makes some of the best foundations and the new True Radiance SPF 15 ($42, 1 oz) proves to be a great one to try. The liquid formula contains moringa seed extract to combat a dull complexion while tara gum and organic marsh samphire are added to boost hydration. 

Both shades 105 Nude and 107 Beige worked well on me. 105 seemed to match my current skintone more accurately while 107 was ever so slightly darker, which will be perfect for the summer season. The texture is extremely lightweight, which is amazing since it delivers a glowing medium-full coverage.

Available at all Clarins counters and www.clarinsusa.com.

Spring Beauty with Gucci

If you love purples, the new shades from the Gucci Beauty spring makeup line are calling your name. The Magnetic Color Shadow Duo ($49) in 025 Primrose is pure understated elegance. The eyeshadow's satin texture is so plush and velvety it almost feels like a gel powder. 

The Luxurious Moisture-Rich Lipstick ($39) in 445 Lilac is stunning. The emollient formula glides on comfortably and the pigmentation is so high you only need two swipes to get full coverage.

 

A fan of Gucci Bamboo? The brand just released a 15 ml luxury purse spray ($39, Sephora exclusive) that's perfect for travel. The bamboo design, an unmistakable icon of the fashion house, is captured in a silver metal case that's durable and elegant. I love the original bottle design, which runs for $70-$115 (30-75 ml). The floral eau de parfum features notes of Casablanca lily, bergamot, ylang ylang, Tahitian vanilla, grey amber and sandalwood.

Available at www.gucci.com.

NARS Tan Lines & Topless Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows

New for summer, NARS has two limited-edition Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows ($29) that's perfect for those who want a light and neutral look. The Topless shade is a pale seashell pink, blending perfectly with Tan Lines, a rich hazelnut. I like wearing them together but they're also pretty when worn alone. I love using a wet brush as it's far more intense, resulting in a gorgeous smoky eye.

Based on the French Riviera lifestyle, the fun packaging features original fashion illustrations by contemporary artist Konstantin Kakanias.
