Beauty round-up: Living Nature’s new releases, LancĂŽme grows its own roses

Filed by Lucire staff/October 12, 2020/8.49


The gift of beauty

Internationally acclaimed Living Nature has launched its new Advanced Renewal Night Serum, part of its award-winning serum and oil range. Powered by 100 per cent natural and 78 per cent organic ingredients, it targets the signs of ageing and promotes healthy skin while you sleep. To make it even more indulgent, there’s a luscious vanilla pear fragrance.
   Living Nature has also announced its new lipstick gift set with a trio of sought-after shades. There’s a smart gift box with gold foil accents. The serum retails for NZ$49, and the lipstick set for NZ$66. Find out more at www.livingnature.com.

Smelling sweeter


Lancîme is known for its rose symbol, because of the love of the flower by its founder, Armand Petitjean. And now it’s in the business of growing and cultivating roses to ensure supply for its fragrances. At the Domaine de la Rose in Grasse, a region classified as a UNESCO cultural heritage site, Lancîme will be growing its own roses for the first time with a sustainable, zero-waste process. The company says it will cultivate the centifolia rose, along with olive, plum and fig trees, other plants native to the region, and ancient aromatic plants. There will also be beehives on the site. Next time you sample a Lancîme fragrance, it may well have been created with these eco-friendly roses.

Protect and hydrate

Sunny days always demand good sunscreen protection and Australia’s award-winning Bondi Sands knows a thing or two on the subject. Its new Hydra UV Protect range both protects and hydrates the skin, using plant-based hydration. The range is also infused with ethically sourced algé, and is reef-friendly. The ingredients also help sooth and nourish after sun exposure. Pictured is the After Sun alƓ vera cooling foam, complementing the sunscreen spray, sunscreen lotion, and SPF 50-plus face lotion. Head to www.bondisands.com for more information.

Wood notes

Young Living’s Shutran bar soap features a vegan-friendly essential oil blend, for those who like a clean, woody flavour. It’s been formulated not to dry skin, and gives a creamy lather. For more information on Young Living’s extensive range, visit www.youngliving.co.nz.

Bollinger releases No Time to Die limited-edition gift box, featuring James Bond and DB5

Filed by Lucire staff/October 1, 2020/0.00

After coming to a stop earlier this year because of COVID-19, the publicity machine for the 25th Eon Productions James Bond picture, No Time to Die, is cranking up again as the movie nears its postponed November 2020 release date.
   Following Land Rover, which ran promotions earlier this year for its Defender model featuring in the film, Bollinger is next with a limited-edition gift box that features imagery of Ian Fleming’s super-spy and the Aston Martin DB5, housing the house’s Special CuvĂ©e. The box is in silver birch, echoing the DB5 first seen in Goldfinger; replicas were made by Aston Martin to appear in No Time to Die. The bottle itself has a black-and-gold collar with the 007 logo.
   Champagne Bollinger worked with photographer Greg Williams for the imagery.
   Bollinger can trace its connection to the world of the cinematic James Bond with the 1979 Roger Moore starrer, Moonraker.
   RRP for the limited-edition champagne is ÂŁ55. No Time to Die, starring Daniel Craig as James Bond and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, is released through MGM and Universal Pictures in the UK on November 12.

 


Chanel releases Coco Mademoiselle l’Eau PrivĂ©e, a night scent; Keira Knightley fronts campaign

Filed by Lucire staff/August 28, 2020/0.52



Keira Knightley is the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle l’Eau PrivĂ©e, the house’s latest take on the Coco Mademoiselle range first launched in 2001.
   Overseen by Olivier Polge, Chanel’s in-house parfumier, l’Eau PrivĂ©e has been described as ‘a watercolour scent’, dialling down the wooden notes in favour of orange, jasmine, rose and musk. Chanel says it remains true to the original oriental fragrance but is more ‘confidential’ and delicate. It is seen as a “night scent”.
   The bottle (50 and 100 ml) is in translucent frosted glass, with the words l’Eau PrivĂ©e in gold lettering, looking more subtle against the contents.
   With the new addition, Coco Mademoiselle comes in five varieties: eau de toilette, eau de parfum, eau de parfum intense, parfum, and the new l’Eau PrivĂ©e.





 


Chanel shows Mademoiselle Privé Bouton watch collection

Filed by Lucire staff/July 30, 2020/11.20



Further applause for Chanel for keeping up a good pace of new releases despite the pandemic—it’s no doubt a mixture of deep pockets and a desire to be one of the few brands vying for consumers’ attention in a world with far less competitive clutter and noise. The latest is its haute horlogerie collection for 2020 called Mademoiselle PrivĂ© Bouton, paying homage to the humble button, but making it a far grander motif on the new watches, covering a small diamond-set dial set within a cuff.
   The Mademoiselle PrivĂ© line takes its inspiration from symbols that Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel held dear, including the objections that she surrounded herself with. Chanel herself took her inspiration from military clothing and sailors’ uniforms when she used her button motifs.
   The watches have black tweed cuffs with a golden braid accent. The buttons come from the world of Chanel: a pearl, a golden lion, a camellia made of diamonds, a Byzantine motif, and the profile of Gabrielle Chanel in agate. The collection comprises seven watches.

Lady Gaga is now officially the face of one of Valentino’s perfumes, the upcoming Voce Viva, by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli with Valentino Beauty.
   The new campaign breaks in September with the perfume’s release.
   â€˜Lady Gaga means freedom, self-consciousness, pure hear,’ said Piccioli. ‘Her participation in this campaign elevates the symbolic power of the project to the highest level. She is the icon of a generation. Her message of freedom, passion for art, self-consciousness and equality is the same our Valentino community stands for. I am so proud for having her in.’
   On the new scent, the house said in a release, ‘Imagined as a voice to spread a message around the world, Valentino Voce Viva invites everyone to touch hearts, inspire others and live their dreams. Expressing the Maison’s values of inclusivity and individuality, Voce Viva celebrates one of the women’s most intimate sense.’
   Lady Gaga, already a modern-day icon and the only artist to receive an Oscar, Grammy, BAFTA and Golden Globe in the same year (for A Star Is Born), has recently released ‘Rain on Me’, a duet with Ariana Grande, and created her own beauty line.
   The star said in the release, ‘Be yourself, love who you are, and never give up your dreams.’
