The lipstick pen by one of the most revered fashion maison’s in the world combines the intensity of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss with the melt-away texture, care and comfort of a balm.

For touch-ups, just click the pen and glide on.

Chanel Le Duo Vernis Longue Tenue
We know it’s a mouthful. But when it comes to color and style, Le Vernis is the ultimate in nail polish. This year, Chanel reformulates the cult beauty accessory with a Gel Coat for an impeccable six-day hold.
Aside from the unique and dazzling colors, Le Vernis is enriched with bioceramics and ceramides that cares for, reinforces hardness and improves nail quality. Meanwhile, Le Gel Coat strengthens hold and adds extreme shine you just can’t dull. Imagine what they can do for your tips when paired together.

From the house of Armani comes Armani Code Satin Eau de Parfum, the scent of womanity with just the right amount of edge. It features a sensual, floriental note made up of orange aroma, patchouli, praline facets, ginger, pear sorbet, Arabica coffee and vanilla notes. The parfum feels like satin on skin but is intoxicating enough to allow the woman to embrace her individuality.
Genaissance de La Mer
If we haven’t said it enough, we’ll say it again. It’s never too early to start on anti-aging and Genaissance de La Mer is among the top-tier beauty potions to invest in. The latest from La Mer holds the promise of agelessness by accelerating skin’s natural renewal process. Made with the brand’s signature Crystal Miracle Broth, rare algae and other marine ingredients, this incredibly potent serum diminishes lines and wrinkles, enhances skin’s collagen and elastin production and strengthens skin’s barrier. The result is visibly smooth and radiant skin, and the precious champagne-gold flacon makes it even more irresistible.

L’Occitane Whitening Sleeping Mask
Sweet dreams are made of L’Occitance Whitening Sleeping Mask. Day in, day out our skin is exposed to pollution, stress and weather damage that causes it to darken and become less translucent. Repair the damage overnight and slather on this gel-cream formula that melts into skin during sleep. The illuminating formula built upon the iconic Reine Blanche Complex is best paired with L’Occitane’s Whitening Cream that moisturizes and protects skin during daytime.
